The Bolt Hole was once a former farm outbuilding which has been converted into a wonderful holiday home within the grounds of the owners’ house. The cottage sleeps two guests, in an open plan bedroom and living space, with a modern bathroom. Renovated in a contemporary style with modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV with DVD player and a well-equipped kitchen, the owners have kept some original character features, including exposed oak beams. There is a beautiful, private garden and off-street parking is available.


The Bolt Hole is located in the thriving hilltop market town of Minchinhampton in the South Cotswolds. This picturesque town has a general store and independent butchers, and is home to the Ragged Cot, a popular country pub 'The Crown Inn', which serves seasonal food all year round. The market towns of Nailsworth, Stroud and Cirencester are also 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.

The town is also home to The Kitchen Café, a popular spot for afternoon tea, with many other tea rooms in the South Cotswolds region to enjoy. Minchinhampton 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.
