  • "Nichols was a great host!"

    Responded very quickly, and was very accommodating to our needs. Check-in instructions were super detailed and helpful. The cottage was very clean and well stocked. We could not have asked for a better location. Overall a wonderful place; we would stay here again easily!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your holiday at The Glebe, and the Cotswolds around you. We do hope you return in the future. Property Owner

  • "Painswick village is a lovely cotswolds village and had lots of local walks from it, which was what we wanted The pub was great for food and drinks and the locals all very friendly."

    It was disappointing that there wasn’t a local coffee shop and the only shop was a generic grocery store. For artisan bakers etc we had to travel in to Stroud. The cottage itself was lovely. It was very clean and everything you needed was there. Lovely to have a wood burner, with all the wood for it available. There is a lovely courtyard garden at the back, unfortunately it was too cold in November to get full use of it! The only disappointing fact about the cottage was it’s actual position. The view from the little round window was fantastic but it was overlooked from the front by a housing estate, which wasn’t apparent in the cottage information when we booked. As a base for exploring the local area it worked really well.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope that the issues you encountered did not leave a lasting impact. We would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely comfortable stay at The Glebe."

    It was delightful, modern, clean and fresh with everything we needed and the welcome pack (and the welcome by the owners) was much appreciated. Parking was excellent and it was a short walk to the centre of the pretty village and the local pub. We would be very happy to return.

The property

Situated in the delightful town of Painswick, Gloucestershire (often referred to as 'The Queen of the Cotswolds'), is this bright and airy, detached cottage, The Glebe.

Offering two well-presented bedrooms and within walking distance of local amenities, this charming abode makes a wonderful base for a small family or two couples looking to explore the picture-perfect Cotswolds.

On arrival to the cottage, ample off-road parking greets you (by the fence on the left), making unloading your bags that little bit simpler.

As you enter the property, the living/dining room invites you to kick off your shoes and sink into the sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV with your loved ones as the woodburning stove flickers.

From here, gather at the dining room to discuss your holiday plans while the chef of the group rustles up a delicious meal in the kitchen.

Amply-equipped, the kitchen offers an electric oven and induction hob for your self-catering requirements, while the handy dishwasher assists with the cleaning up.

Completing the ground floor is a sleek shower room where you can freshen up after a day of exploring the local area.

When sleep calls, venture upstairs for some well-earned rest; the first floor hosts a king-size and a double, each with hanging space for your belongings and a light and fresh décor.

Finish off your day with a relaxing soak in the bath; the first floor is complete with another sleek bathroom which also hosts a walk-in shower, should you prefer a refreshing rinse when you wake.

Outside, take advantage of the warmer weather and enjoy your meals alfresco in the courtyard where you will find dining seating for four and a charming array of plants and shrubbery lining the yard.

For days out while at the cottage, why not spend an afternoon exploring the 18th century flower and vegetable gardens at Painswick Rococo Garden?

Slightly further afield, wander the 250-acre Robinswood Hill Country Park, a lovely hilltop country park where you may see some of the resident foxes and badgers.

Enjoy a day in the city of Gloucester, home to the medieval Gloucester Cathedral and the fascinating Museum of Gloucester which houses exhibitions ranging from prehistoric times to the present.

Gloucester is home to a wealth of pubs, restaurants and other eateries, as well as a fabulous quay to stroll along to take in the character of the city.

Heading in the opposite direction, animal lovers will be pleased to discover Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens, the home of over 260 animals to get up-close and personal with.

Walkers, cyclists and explorers alike will not be left short for activities, being located in the heart of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will find an abundance of breathtaking scenery and routes to discover, along with plenty of quaint villages and towns bursting with cultural and historical significance.

Make memories with your loved ones at any time of year in The Glebe.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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”.
