The property

Located in Cranham, Gloucestershire, in the heart of the Cotswolds, Lakeside Cottage is perched on a hillside looking towards a wooded valley and two lakes, giving you a view, you are unlikely ever to forget.

Peace, tranquillity and convenient location make this an amazing holiday choice that we're convinced will have you returning! Inside the owners have created a beautiful feeling with traditional oak-beamed interior that offers a real home-from-home vibe. The Lounge features a plush traditional style sofa with two matching armchairs and oak furniture, a large TV with FreeSat, DVD Player and CD Player, and an attractive stone chimney breast, housing a cosy woodburning stove- added for your comfort. The separate kitchen is at the front of the property with views down to our private fishing lakes.

You can enjoy home cooked meals from the table with seating for up to four people.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with halogen hog, electric grill oven, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Alternatively, you could eat your evening meals in the more elegant surroundings or our separate Dining Room, which is at the back of the property, with a large oak dining table, four chairs and a Welsh dresser. Lakeside boasts two exceptionally spacious fully furnished bedrooms: one with double bed and one twin beds.

Both Bedrooms have large en-suite bathrooms, one with a Shower and the other has a bath. Outdoors, there is no lawn as such but down some steps, you have exclusive use of a private decking area, know as The Crow's Nest, which is built into the hillside, overlooking uninterrupted views of the magnificent countryside, and from where you will have incredible views down our own private valley towards the village of Painswick. This is the most scenic location you will find - enjoy a refreshing glass of wine at the provided table and chairs, while watching the wildlife through your binoculars. Nearby are many historic buildings, both grade I AND II listed.

Also, picturesque villages showcasing cosy Cotswold cottages, many of which have been built from the local yellow limestone. There is so much to see in this area.

It is a place you need to visit to believe how striking it really is. Lakeside Cottage is ideal for a short break or memorable holiday.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £25.

About the location


Stroud 4 miles; Gloucester 7 miles; Cheltenham 10 miles.

Painswick, located only 10 miles from Cheltenham, is a town and civil parish in Gloucestershire. The town originated from the wool trade, but is now best known for its parish church’s yew trees and the local Rococo Garden. The village is mainly constructed of locally quarried Cotswold Stone. It stands on a hill in the Stroud district which overlooks one of the Five Valleys and is halfway along the Cotswolds Way National Trail. It is home to a cricket and rugby team and has a popular golf course on the outskirts of the town. There is a local pub The Royal Oak which offer real ales, real fires and a courtyard. Opposite the pub is a well-stocked village shop. A twenty minute walk from the village is the Painswick Beacon which affords vast views across Gloucester to the River Severn and the Malvern Hills. The Painswick Centre hosts many events and exhibitions and is home to the ACP Gallery. Painswick is 4 miles north of Stroud and 2 miles northwest of Slad – home of Laurie Lee, author of “Cider with Rosie”.

Note: This property only accepts children over 8 years old, but babes in arms are welcome.
