    “I had a wonderful solo pre-Christmas weekend away at Shepherd's View and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.”

    I arrived late at night, but easily found the parking spot and Hut through the gate. With such a clear night, it was fantastic being able to sit outside with something warm and just take in the stars above (thought it would be great to have a way to turn off the automatic light). The Hut is beautifully kitted out inside and incredibly comfortable to sleep in — heating is provided by a radiator and fire, but the bedding was warm too. Stepping out from the Hut there are some beautiful walks ...

The Hut is beautifully kitted out inside and incredibly comfortable to sleep in — heating is provided by a radiator and fire, but the bedding was warm too. Stepping out from the Hut there are some beautiful walks with incredible views, and driving to Stroud is really easy if you want to pop for some shopping. If you're a solo traveller and looking for somewhere to unwind, I really recommend Shepherd's View.

The property

Set in an outstanding location, this is THE perfect, romantic 'get away from it all' retreat, and we love it! Located in a stunning position, in the utterly gorgeous Slad Valley (Laurie Lee country) the owners have created the perfect hideaway for a couple. Small, but perfectly formed, the accommodation contains a standard size double bed plus a cute a shower room too and even a log burner for warming moments - all in this boutique bolt hole. The small kitchen provides your essential amenities, and the clever, fold away table allows you the chance to make the most of the amazing views. Every effort has been made to combine creature comforts with this idyllic, rural setting. If you can drag yourself away from this incredible location - you have the quintessential Cotswold towns of Burford, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water.

If you are looking to explore some of the larger Cotswold towns, then Stroud is just down the road.

A little further afield is the gorgeous town of Cheltenham, famous for its Regency buildings, and for its internationally renowned horse racing meetings - most notably the Gold Cup meeting every March; something that the owners take a particular interest in.

About the location

PAINSWICK

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”.
