Slad, Cirencester & surrounding area
What a stunning holiday cottage! Bridge Barn offers so much as a holiday home that it is hard to imagine this not being a place you choose to return to once you've been the first time. Perched on the edge of hill and with incredible views down the Slad Valley, this beautifully presented cottage has undergone a huge transformation which not only takes advantage of its awesome position, but internally provides every possible luxury you could want for a holiday. A Sonos state of the art music system, underfloor heating throughout, built in TV's in all the main rooms, modern, cool furnishings and awesome views give this property complete standout appeal. This is ideal for a family or for two couples as there are two very smart Ensuite bathrooms and beds (in bedroom 2) which can be made as singles or doubles. We loved this luxury cottage when we visited and we find it hard you won't feel the same when you stay!

Bridge Barn sits in some of the Cotswolds' most attractive countryside. Perhaps best known for its association with Laurie Lee and Cider with Rosie, the region is exceptionally popular with walkers which isn't surprising given the location. Slad is gorgeous and 'ultra Cotswolds', packed full of traditional buildings, winding lanes and beautiful views. The Woolpack pub is outstanding and exceptionally friendly, and famed as much for its current warm welcome as it is for the place Laurie Lee regularly attended!
The nearest 'town' (a different one) is Painswick a delightful market town with a wide selection of shops and places to stop and relax (think coffee shops). It too has some gorgeous architecture - the church is particularly eye catching, and there are some lovely pubs to choose from too. For a wider selection of shops Stroud is about 3 miles away where you will find a Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Tesco's. On every Saturday there is a Farmer's Market in Stroud - one which is widely regarded as the best in the Cotswolds, with plenty of organic produce, food, cheeses and much more. There is also a flee market on every Friday mornings selling plenty of bric-a-brac.
Cheltenham and Gloucester are nearby too. Cheltenham is about 13 miles away and has a wide selection of shops to choose from plus regular festivals that Cheltenham is well known for.
This is a location that is very much 'deep in the Cotswolds', reachable either from the M40 or better still via the M4. Once you pull off the motorway, within minutes you are travelling through proper countryside and about to enjoy some of the finest that the Cotswolds has to offer. Heartily recommended
"beautiful house in idyllic location."Mrs Self 2017-10-19
"so well designed, everything we could think of was there for us. Perfect! We loved that the bedrooms were on opposite ends of the cottage because of the baby, this made things much easier. And having 2 bathrooms. Just a beautiful location and fluid design. "Wardley
