Close to Minchinhampton and Royal Tetbury, Nailsworth with its award-winning artisan bakers, Painswick very pretty for pub lunch/ cream tea.

Easy drive to Cirencester, Painswick and Tetbury, a little further to Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol, Westonbirt and Cotswold Water Park. Bear in mind some roads are narrow so careful with wide cars.

Please leave £60 cash on side for the lovely local lady who looks after the turnovers. This is an extra cost to bear in mind before booking. It's easier to pass straight on.

My family spent Christmases here for many years, full of happy memories, I can share lots of tips on what to do and where to go. Any questions, just drop me a line x :-)

PS Please bear in mind it's a home from home with lovely quiet neighbours and not a business or suitable for group parties

Interaction with guests

I live in London and my sister lives in Cheltenham half an hour away.

Other things to note

Sorry but no group bookings with the aim of having a knees-up please as it's a peaceful area and not fair on our lovely neighbours :)

Please note: we ask guests to leave £60 for the local lady who does turn overs rather than add on to rate.

We are happy to accept 2 night bookings apart from late July and August which is a minimum of 5 nights per booking.

Lovely cottage, fully equipped with everything you need for a perfect family holiday. Beautiful setting with common, villages, woodlands, pubs, restaurants, etc, etc. nearby. Great base for exploring the Cotswolds. Made to feel very welcome by Magda. Highly recommend

We had a great weekend at Fiona's place. It was very comfortable and well equipped for our needs. It is nice and secluded but you have to be prepared for a very narrow and steep road in order to gain access by vehicle. Fiona was exceptionally helpful and amenable considering we had to book at very short notice! And Kim, the cleaner was very helpful and welcoming. Thanks, Fiona and Magda.

Beautiful place tucked into a very peaceful part of the Cotswolds. Walked to the Old Lodge--fantastic food! Enjoyed the hikes around the cottage. Close to everything, but set up apart enough to feel cozy. Wonderful experience.

The 5 of us had a really lovely time at this cottage. It was a great place to start walking from, and we got a taxi to the beginning of a walk one day, whilst doing a circular walk on another. We managed a whole trip without a car, and found it very easy to get a taxi from Stroud station and back. The village is also a 10 minute walk away, so totally possible with shopping. A perfect place for a lovely break!

Fantastic little cottage, in easy walking range of lots of brilliant walks as well as shops and necessary services. Fiona was very quick to respond to my messages and did all she could to make our stay smooth.

Fiona and Magda's cottage is an absolute gem. The location and space are fantastic. Everything is as advertised, and both Fiona and Magda were very communicative. My family and I had a wonderful time rambling, enjoying the fire, and relaxing over Christmas at the cottage. We were even pleasantly surprised by how warm the cottage was even through very cold, windy nights. We all agreed that we wished we had been able to stay longer.
