We have just returned from a lovely weekend away staying at Half Pint Cottage. I wanted to thank you and congratulate you on the fantastic restoration you have accomplished; the cottage was just perfect! Michael. April 2012
We had a lovely stay...roamed as far as Broadway and as near as Painswick and enjoyed our brief introduction to the Cotswolds. The cottage was perfect, inclement weather only helped as it was lovely to light the fire and make dinner in the cosy kitchen, whilst planning the next day...John and Andrea,May2012
Well what can I say, Half Pint Cottage is a delight. We enjoyed our stay very much, I dont think you will have any problem renting it again and again and I hope that future guests enjoy it as much as we did. Pat enjoyed his tour around the Cotswolds and I got to visit Woodchester Mansion and Gloucester Cathedral for the first time ever! Jacki August 2012

Year property purchased: 2011
Why this location?
Before leaving England, we spent a lot of time visiting the Cotswolds, where we enjoyed walking and visiting some fine country pubs. So when we decided to acquire a small pied a terre in the english countryside, the Cotswolds was a natural choice.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
We love the village location of Selsley, with its thriving pub "local", strong community feel, and beautiful walks in all directions. Being on the edge of Stroud we also have the added advantage of shops ,cafés and a farmers' market, as well as excellent communications, so we feel that we have the best of both worlds.
