The property

Butterrow Gate is an eye-catching property which sleeps two guests, in one lovely bedroom, with a ground floor bathroom.

This unique Grade II listed property was constructed in 1825 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 woodburning 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.

On the grround floor is the living/dining room containing the sofa, armchair, a drop down wooden leaf table with two chairs and a Cotswold stone fire place with wood burning stove.

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

Note: Children under the age of 8 are not permitted.
