    We loved everything about our visit and the location. We will definitely be back. Peter is an author and his books are available on Amazon and in all good book shops. I have read his book "No one stood Taller" (of a trilogy) and its a very powerful read. Lakeside Cottage is now forever etched in our hearts and my words of feedback are only a drop in the ocean, as to the feedback it deserves. If you respect and appreciate yourself and others and want to completely retreat and recharge in a beautiful peaceful environment, Lakeside cottage is the place for you. Thank you so much.

    Many thanks for your kind words! Glad you enjoyed "None Stood Taller" too! Only two more in the series to go...until he writes another, but that takes at least a year to publication! Property Owner

    !! Cannot recommend this amazing holiday cottage and the couple who own and run it highly enough! I spent 3 weeks here and never got bored of experiencing the wonderful peace and quiet or the stunning views. Although situated in a hidden valley the property is near enough to all the towns and sites you may want to visit. Every home comfort was already provided but if you need anything the owners were more than happy to help out. I shall certainly return for another tranquil retreat! Not often that a place surpasses my expectations but this one is on another level!!!

    Peter and Carol are fantastic hosts and make you feel very welcome. The barn itself is of top quality and it is brilliantly located next to the Cotswold countryside - it's isolated location, the Crow's Nest and views are definitely it's selling points. If I was to critique this holiday destination, EBI there were more space to store groceries. And, you will need a car if you are not actively mobile. I do not like leaving positive reviews as it makes it harder for us to rebook should we wish to come back, but we had a fantastic week and did not want to leave.

About the location


Stroud 4 miles; Gloucester 7 miles; Cheltenham 10 miles.

Painswick, located only 10 miles from Cheltenham, is a town and civil parish in Gloucestershire. The town originated from the wool trade, but is now best known for its parish church’s yew trees and the local Rococo Garden. The village is mainly constructed of locally quarried Cotswold Stone. It stands on a hill in the Stroud district which overlooks one of the Five Valleys and is halfway along the Cotswolds Way National Trail. It is home to a cricket and rugby team and has a popular golf course on the outskirts of the town. There is a local pub The Royal Oak which offer real ales, real fires and a courtyard. Opposite the pub is a well-stocked village shop. A twenty minute walk from the village is the Painswick Beacon which affords vast views across Gloucester to the River Severn and the Malvern Hills. The Painswick Centre hosts many events and exhibitions and is home to the ACP Gallery. Painswick is 4 miles north of Stroud and 2 miles northwest of Slad – home of Laurie Lee, author of “Cider with Rosie”.
