    “We absolutely loved the layout and decor of the place.”

    It had some absolutely stunning views and we loved eating our breakfast and dinner on the balcony each day. ...

    It had some absolutely stunning views and we loved eating our breakfast and dinner on the balcony each day. The only suggestion would possibly be an update in the email on the parking, we couldn’t see which exactly we were supposed to park in other than the sign as there didn’t seem to be the yellow thatched area or red box, so we may have been parking in the incorrect space (our apologies). Other than the slight confusion on the parking, we could not have stayed at a better place and highly recommend

The property

Butterrow Gate is an eye-catching property which sleeps two guests, in one lovely bedroom, with a ground floor bathroom. This unique property was constructed in the 1820s as the toll house to service the turnpike road linking Stroud to Cirencester, and is one of the few toll houses in the UK to still have the original wooden toll charges board fixed to the front of the building. An early example of Gothic architectural revival built from Cotswold stone, Butterrow Gate retains many character features including stone mullion windows, exposed Cotswold stone walls, flagstone flooring and a Cotswold stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. Modern facilities such as wireless internet access, a Freesat TV with DVD player, and underfloor heating complement the traditional features, and there is an elevated patio garden with stunning views, and one off-street parking space is available. Butterrow Gate is located on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Stroud, famed for its independent shops, galleries and cafes. Stroud hosts an award-winning Farmers' Market every Saturday, and there is an organic farm shop just a short drive from the property. The town has a wide range of restaurants and pubs, the closest to Butterrow Gate being The Prince Albert Inn which is dog friendly and often has live music nights. Surrounded by the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are many lovely cycle routes and walks on its doorstep, including those through Rodborough Common which has spectacular views across Woodchester Valley and to the River Seven on a clear day. The River Frome flows through Stroud itself and has a pleasant tow path which follows the course of the river, passing by the Stroud Brewery, just a half hour stroll from the property. Stroud is well placed for visiting the many historic towns of the South Cotswolds, including Painswick, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton and Cirencester. Further afield destinations such as Bath, Cheltenham and Oxford are within easy reach for day trips. Please check for non Monday and Friday arrivals.

About the location


Gloucester 9.5 miles; Cirencester 13 miles.

The town of Stroud is known as the less commercial corner of the Cotswolds, a somewhat bohemian collection of buildings, squares and lanes, tucked into the green hills which once housed countless sheep during the town’s time as the centre of the Cotswold’s woollen industry. Today, Stroud welcomes visitors to its friendly cafes, quaint bookshops, independent shops and tempting eateries. Described by Jasper Conran as the ‘Covent Garden of the Cotswolds’, Stroud has a regular farmers' market, year-round programmes of music and theatre, a thriving arts scene and a state-of-the-art cinema. For simply relaxing, Stratford Park on the edge of town offers lakeside walks, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a museum. Head out of town to explore the five sweeping valleys which surround it, with country lanes just made for walking or cycling.

Please note this property will only automatically accept Monday and Friday arrivals, for other arrival days please check prior to booking.

Note: The garden can also be accessed via right of way through the neighbour's front garden.

One well behaved dog welcome.

Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Note: Logs for the woodburning stove are provided between September and April; guests must purchase their own outside of these months.
