Slad, Tetbury & surrounding area
You'll feel calm and in pure luxury here in Peglars Barn. Deep down in a valley in the heart of the Cotswolds hills outside Slad sits this outstanding retreat which has been given the uber-contemporary makeover. An exceptional hideaway for a couple, you will be located in a hidden valley on the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way, beautifully isolated and with incredible views across the hills. The views are mesmerising and totally uninterrupted, you can see the countryside change before your eyes with the sheep, the occasional horse and the birds coming and going. Totally open plan with clever sliding doors between the bedroom and living area but with an entire 'wall' given over to glass sliders (windows that can be pulled back entirely) you have total view of the hills from your chair, your table or you bed. Furnished beautifully the style is a mix of chic with an industrial tone - you'll be as snug as bug with the underfloor heating and with luxury furnishings you'll be so relaxed you won't want to leave. You could walk for hours and not touch a road, or better still you could stay in bed and simply watch the clouds pass by. The Cotswolds' has something undeniably gorgeous with this romantic bolt hole.
Even in mid winter we were awe-struck at this place, you will be too!

Peglars 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' is Painswick a delightful but small location sitting in the hills and is about 7 mins drive away, if that. It has 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.
