Teasel Cross Cottage 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 Teasel Cross Cottage's garden, have stunning views out over the glorious countryside of the Painswick Valley. Teasel Cross Cottage is well 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, goes past the front door of the cottage.

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. Quiet on street parking is freely available. Teasel Cross Cottage is an ideal retreat for couples, or a small family with children, looking for a peaceful getaway.

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.

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.

Car: Teasel Cross Cottage is easily accessed by car, being located close to the A46, which runs through the South-West Cotswolds, from Cheltenham to Bath.

Train: The nearest railway station to Teasel Cross Cottage is Stroud (approximately four miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately ninety minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 65 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 96 miles, approximately 100 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 44 miles, approximately 60 minute drive.

comfortable, quiet, updated historic house

  • 5 of 5

This house is located very near the churchyard which is the center of town. It is cute and cozy. The kitchen and bathroom are updated and the house provided a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The walls are stone, so in some ways it was like staying in a cave. It was very quiet and relaxing. The back yard is nice and has a lovely view from the top. Overall, the house is modernized and pleasant with the exceptions being the steep stairs and low ceilings upstairs, which are mentioned in the rental information. The house was built at a time when people were shorter on average than today and space was at a premium. In short, we hope to return again and spend more time in this lovely house.
