    “We had a wonderful time at Grange Cottage!”

    Perfect for our family of five. Beautiful home in a spectacular area. Be aware that the ceilings/doorways are low in several places in the house. It still feels very open and light, but for someone over six feet, there were a lot of bumped heads.

The property

Grange Cottage is a stunning Cotswold stone cottage, which enjoys an idyllic rural location, with spectacular views across a valley to the Woodchester Valley Vineyard. The cottage is on the edge of the village of Amberley, which although small, has two well regarded pubs. Amberley backs onto the National Trust common land of Minchinhampton Common, a unique 600 acre open space with far reaching views, which offers walking, kite flying and an 18-hole golf course. The larger towns of Nailsworth and Stroud are close by, offering a vibrant selection of restaurants, shops and award-winning farmers markets. Grange Cottage is an ideal base for outdoor activities such as walking and cycling, as well as for exploring the wider Cotswolds region and further afield places, such as Bath, Oxford and even day trips into London. This 18th century weavers' cottage boasts beautiful rural views across the valley from many of the rooms and has an abundance of character features, including oak beams, window seats, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a cosy wood burning stove. This traditional character is complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a SMART TV with DVD player, and a well-presented kitchen. Grange Cottage sleeps six people, in four bedrooms, with one bathroom and a ground floor cloakroom. The main garden is at the front of the property, with a lawned area, mature shrubs and trees, and a patio area that is perfect for admiring the far reaching views and watching beautiful sunsets. A driveway at the back of the cottage has parking space for up to two cars and there is a further parking space on the lane outside the cottage. Grange Cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a rural break in the heart of the Cotswold countryside. Grange Cottage is a large semi-detached Cotswold stone cottage, which sits on a steep slope at the top of a rural lane, and benefits from stunning views.

There is a double bed, fitted wardrobes and a free-standing flatscreen TV. The door to this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs and it is not possible to put a stair gate at the top of the stairs, so this room may not be suitable for young children. The main garden area is at the front of the cottage, enclosed by Cotswold stone walls, and is mostly laid to lawn, with traditionally planted cottage garden borders and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is a patio area outside the conservatory, with an outdoor table and seating for six, which provides spectacular views across the valley to Woodchester and benefits from glorious sunsets.

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.

Note: No Saturday or Sunday turnaround.

Note: The door to the second-floor bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs and it is not possible to put a stair gate at the top of the stairs, so this room may not be suitable for young children.

Note: An initial basket of logs for the woodburning stove is provided between October and March; guests must purchase their own outside of these months.

Note: The family bathroom contains a bath with a shower over which is approximately 5'8" upright standing / head room is therefore restricted for showering but it is possible for taller people to stoop or bend.

Note: Candles are not permitted at the property, due to the fire hazard they present.

Note: Sorry, long term stays over 28 days are not permitted at this property.
