Summary

Belleview is part of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages, located on a peaceful lane, in the heart of the beautiful village of Painswick, well known as the 'Queen of the Cotswolds' and famous for its 99 yew trees in the ancient churchyard. Many places within the village, including Belleview's garden, have stunning views out over the glorious countryside of the Painswick Valley. Belleview is well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

The cottage has been lovingly renovated by its owner, to highlight its traditional character features, including exposed Cotswold stone walls and oak beams, wooden doors and a large inglenook fireplace. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two flatscreen TVs and a well equipped kitchen/dining room.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with one bathroom. Please note that children under the age of 10 are not permitted at Belleview. Quiet on street parking is freely available. Belleview is an ideal retreat for couples, or a small family with older children, looking for a peaceful getaway.

Smoking:

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Photographs:

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Painswick

Nestling quietly in the famous Cotswold hills, surrounded by some of Gloucestershire's most delightful countryside is the historic wool town of Painswick, regularly referred to as 'the Queen of the Cotswolds'.

The town's many beautiful buildings, built of mellow Cotswold stone from the local quarry on Painswick Beacon, can be seen as you wander around its quaint and narrow streets. New Street, constructed around 1428 when the wool and cloth trade was flourishing, contains Painswick's only example of exposed timber framing. There are also rare 17th century spectacle stocks near the court house and the 14th century houses in Bisley Street include two original Donkey Doors, wide enough for panniered donkeys who carried the wool from the numerous mills along the local valleys.

The beautiful church of St Mary has Norman origins and was extended around 1480 in the English perpendicular style. Folklore holds that the churchyard will never have more than 99 yew trees and that should a 100th grow the Devil will pull it out. The churchyard is also famous for its 'Clipping the church' ceremony, held in September, where local children wear flowers in their hair, join hands and embrace St. Mary's parish church. A closer look at the church tower still reveals traces of Painswick's role in the English Civil War.

Painswick is undoubtedly a village for all seasons, whatever the weather. Its tranquillity and peace make for a wonderful holiday or weekend break, whether you are looking for a cosy log fire set in an original hearth in the winter, or a delicious cream tea in the summer. There are a variety of small shops and galleries to browse around, as well as pubs, restaurants and tea shops serving good food.

The countryside around Painswick is ideal for walkers, bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts. The famous Cotswold Way footpath, which runs from Bath to Chipping Campden, goes through the village and Painswick is also an ideal starting point for many other delightful walks. Undulating areas of pasture land fall to the Wick stream, which supplied the power for the woollen mills that can still be seen along its length. Painswick Beacon has magnificent views across the Severn Valley and on a clear day the Welsh Mountains can be seen. The outlines of an Iron Age fort can be seen around the summit. The celebrated Rococo Gardens at Painswick House are open to the public throughout the year. In late winter and early spring the carpets of snowdrops are truly breathtaking.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe.
