The Painswick Mill offers a magnificent base for a group celebration, inviting twelve guests, whilst enjoying stunning rural views, located in the Cotswolds AONB; the home is complete with a private tennis court, an outdoor heated swimming pool, and vast living spaces, all oozing character and elegance. Before admiring the magnificent grounds that surround your new house, which are lined with gorgeous magnolia trees, wide lawns, and a rushing stream, take advantage of the private driveway. Step inside this characterful home and proceed to the kitchen/diner to take care of your self-catering needs before enjoying meals in one of the two dining rooms, both of which have crackling open fires. Relax in the charming living room, which features beamed ceilings, lots of plush couches, an open fireplace, and a collection of literature to pore over. The orangery, which has views of the garden and a magnificent woodburning stove to light on chilly evenings, is also a great place to unwind. If the weather permits, before going to bed, take a swim in the pool, play a match of tennis, or just relax on the patio and take in the views. Choose from six double bedrooms, all of which come with the convenience of en-suite bathrooms; four of the bedrooms are on the first level, while the other two are on the second floor, all of which include original beamed ceilings and plenty of room to relax and recharge.

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.
