  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Spring Cottage."

    The place really feels like home, we didn’t want to leave! Andy and Angela have put a lot of time, effort and money into making this period property luxurious and inviting. Only being recently renovated, the cottage was super clean and fresh, and you can tell has been renovated with a lot of thought and to a very high standard. The homemade cake and bottle of fizz were a very personal touch for our New Years visit. Whilst staying we weren’t blessed with the weather but we hiked every day - we loved the Laurie Lee walk which passed right next to the cottage and had some great elevation. You must try the Woolpack for great seasonal food. We loved our stay, we just can’t wait to come back! One thing I would mention, that I feel the reviews and listing doesn’t mention is the spectacular views directly from the cottage. We were so impressed with the location and the rolling hills right in front of us, we would definitely make sure it’s included in future marketing! Thanks again for the wonderful stay! Alice and Ben

    Thank you Alice and Ben for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Spring Cottage and thank you very much for the suggestion regarding the listing, it is really appreciated. We hope to see you again in the future. Andy and Angie Property Owner

  • "A delightful location with easy access to Slad village and surrounding countryside."

    Accommodation is beautifully presented and comfortable as well as being full of charm as it is modern but within an old cottage. The living/dining/kitchen area is very relaxing with plenty of light, space and great facilities. It is great place to chill out and browse the reading material, especially the works of Laurie Lee, a native of Slad - then walk the local trails dedicated to him.

    Thank you Graham, we are so pleased you liked Spring Cottage. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    Conveniently located close to Stroud centre for any needs- make sure to visit the famous farmers market on Saturday. Location was peaceful with wonderful hilly views. Some incredible and varied walks just on your doorstep which makes for a wonderful adventure when hiking. Owners were very accommodating and helpful, had thought of everything that is needed for a short break- including the fresh lemon drizzle cake and homemade jam!

    This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in, comfortable, clean and everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

About the location


Gloucester 9.5 miles; Cirencester 13 miles.

The town of Stroud is known as the less commercial corner of the Cotswolds, a somewhat bohemian collection of buildings, squares and lanes, tucked into the green hills which once housed countless sheep during the town’s time as the centre of the Cotswold’s woollen industry. Today, Stroud welcomes visitors to its friendly cafes, quaint bookshops, independent shops and tempting eateries. Described by Jasper Conran as the ‘Covent Garden of the Cotswolds’, Stroud has a regular farmers' market, year-round programmes of music and theatre, a thriving arts scene and a state-of-the-art cinema. For simply relaxing, Stratford Park on the edge of town offers lakeside walks, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a museum. Head out of town to explore the five sweeping valleys which surround it, with country lanes just made for walking or cycling.
