Location

Bakers Cottage is located in the heart of the picturesque market town of Minchinhampton, a bustling hilltop town with its weekly market every Thursday. At its centre is the 17th century Market Hall which would have once been used to buy and sell livestock along with other local produce. The town is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside with many cycle routes and walking trails right on its doorstep, including routes through Minchinhampton Common, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with stunning views of the Stroud Valleys.

The market towns of Nailsworth, Stroud and Cirencester are close by with a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, and further afield places such as Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford are all within easy reach. In addition to the lovely towns and villages nearby, there are many tourist attractions to enjoy, including the Cotswold Water Park, Westonbirt Arboretum, The Royal Gardens at Highgrove and Gatcombe Park, the venue for the famous annual horse trials and home to the Princess Royal.
