Located in the heart of old Painswick, which is a beautiful village on the western edge of the Cotswolds near Cheltenham. The cottage is located on one of the prettiest lanes, and enjoys extensive views across the Painswick valley from all its bedrooms and from its steep terraced garden.

The space
** Regretfully due to steep stairs throughout the cottage and garden we do not accept children under the age of 12 for safety reasons. For the same reasons the cottage is not recommended for anybody with limited mobility.**

Southview is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. The famous Cotswold Way footpath, which runs from Bath to Chipping Campden, runs right through the village, and in addition the valley is riven by an extensive network of footpaths, many of which can be easily accessed from various places along the lane. If walking is too much effort, or to slake your thirst and satisfy your hunger after a ramble, a variety of great pubs and restaurants can be found within 5 minutes walk of the cottage, as can a well stocked convenience shop.

Southview has been lovingly renovated to highlight its traditional character features, namely exposing many Cotswold stone walls and oak beams, using wooden doors, and installing a wood burning stove in the original fireplace. Furthermore two additions to the original cottage greatly enhance the original character - a lovely steep wooden spiral staircase has been installed to give access to the first floor, and another steep staircase from the first floor climbs to the master bedroom in the eaves of the cottage. The interior has been stylishly decorated in a crisp country style that is a fusion of a sleek contemporary pared back look with a more traditional country cottage look.

As a result of not being situated opposite another cottage, Southview has stunning countryside views from all its bedrooms, and also the living room enjoys plenty of daylight (and even distant glimpses of the valley ridge). The views don’t stop there however - when the weather is agreeable then climb the steep steps of the garden up to the top terrace to enjoy the pièce de resistance: un-interrupted and far reaching views over the cottage itself of the Painswick Valley, its slopes resplendent in its livery of lush green fields, and its ridges lined by magnificent ancient mature beech woodlands (nearby Beech woodlands are designated special conservation areas).

The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, an internet-enabled flatscreen TV (for example allowing films to be viewed from a Netflix account), a Blu-Ray DVD player, a wireless music player compatible with modern smart phones, and a well equipped kitchen with a washer/dryer. The cottage sleeps a maximum of four people in two bedrooms, and has one bathroom. Please note that children under the age of 10 are not permitted at Southview. On street parking is freely available.

Southview is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family with older children looking for a peaceful getaway.

I am a former advertising and marketing director turned interior designer and my partner Daniel is a statistician in the pharmaceutical industry. We love the Cotswolds, especially the Cirencester-Painswick-Stroud corner, which provides a great escape from the hustle and bustle. Southview is a very special hideaway which we hope you will find comfortable and welcoming. It is a lovely spot for walking and just enjoying the great outdoors with the odd fantastic country pub thrown in.
