    “We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed Grange Cottage, hiowever we feel it could be more accurately described particularly the location which for some people might be challenging.”

    For us it was perfect. Also think the shower needs some attention to stop the head falling off and damaging the bath which has obviously happened several times already. Thanks for letting us stay and we will recommend you to others.

They are also home to three 18 hole golf courses. Nearby, a visit to the historic Winstones Ice Cream Factory, the award-winning Farmer's Market in Stroud and the Fairtrade town of Nailsworth with its art galleries, individual shops and spring music and art festivals, are a must. The waterfront city of Gloucester, with its Victorian docklands, is close by and the town of Cirencester, 'Gateway to the Cotswolds' offers ancient buildings and museums. The beautiful spa town of Cheltenham is an easy drive away, offering Georgian architecture and many festivals including the Gold Cup horse race. A great holiday destination all year round.

On the rare occasion that snow is forecast, it is suggested that guests park cars on the lower or upper lanes, away from the steep hill.
