The property

Little Culver is a stunning and unique Cotswold stone property, built in 1821.

The cottage forms the right hand half of a beautiful castellated Grade II listed building, Culver Cottage.

Originally an almshouse, it was built by David Ricardo of Gatcombe Park, and its distinctive architectural style is reflected by its reference in Pevsner's Architectural Guide for the Cotswolds. The cottage is located in the heart of the charming village of Minchinhampton, which is situated on the eastern edge of the beautiful Minchinhampton Common.

Although just a small village, Minchinhampton has a village shop and post office, an independent butcher, and a well regarded café and country pub.

The Ragged Cot pub is on the edge of the village, just over a mile away from the cottage, and the vibrant market towns of Nailsworth and Stroud are both close by, with their wide range of dining options and unique shops.

Minchinhampton is in the stunning Five Valleys area of the South Cotswolds, which is also home to Gatcombe Park, the venue for the famous annual horse trials.

Little Culver is well located for visiting the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham, as well as the many picturesque towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Little Culver has been lovingly refurbished by its owners, in a warm, contemporary style.

There are a wealth of character features, including Gothic windows, exposed Cotswold stone, pretty window seats and a wood burning stove.

The character of the property is complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a SMART TV and a stunning kitchen. The property sleeps five people, in three bedrooms, with a family bathroom, enclosed back garden and free on street parking close by.

Little Culver is perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a relaxing break in the beautiful Five Valleys area of the Cotswolds.

About the location


Stroud 4.5 miles.

The ancient market town of Minchinhampton is located on a hilltop in beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, and offers a wide range of amenities including a weekly market, still held in the magnificent 17th century Market House. This vibrant town boasts a range of individual shops, restaurants and cafes, making it perfect for an afternoon stroll in a beautiful setting. Nearby, Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons, managed by the National Trust, cover over 500 acres and offer far-reaching 360 degree views, ideal for walkers and cyclists. 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.

Note: A starter pack of logs for the woodburning stove are provided between October and April; guests must purchase their own outside of these months.

Note: Parking is not permitted on the road the property is on.

Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that your dog remains downstairs, stays off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Note: Due to the absence of window restrictors on the original timber-framed windows, Little Culver does not accept children under the age of five, though babes-in-arms are accepted.

Note: There are no locks on the original timber-framed windows.

Note: Bedrooms 2 and 3 open onto the first-floor landing, next to the top of the staircase, therefore guests should be careful exiting these bedrooms, particularly at night time.

Note: No Sunday arrivals unless you have spoken to the owner to confirm first
