Lovely, detached Cotswold stone cottage, on the outskirts of Stroud



Updated: 28-Oct-2016
Sleeps 5 in 3 bedrooms, with 2 bathrooms. Garden and off-street parking.


Rose Tree Cottage is a lovely, detached Cotswold stone cottage, on the outskirts of Stroud, in the beautiful Five Valleys area of the Cotswolds. Following a recent renovation, the cottage is presented to a high standard throughout and also benefits from lovely gardens, making it the perfect place for a break in the Cotswolds.


Rose Tree Cottage is a grade II listed, detached Cotswold stone cottage, sitting in its own gardens on a hill just outside the market town of Stroud, in the heart of the beautiful 'Five Valleys' region of the Cotswolds. Stroud is well known for its bohemian vibe and eclectic mix of shops, with Jasper Conran describing the weekly Farmers' Market held in the town as 'the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds'. The Five Valleys converge on Stroud and contain some of the most beautiful countryside Britain has to offer. Rose Tree Cottage is also well placed for exploring further afield, with the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham both within easy reach.

The cottage has been lovingly renovated and extended by its owners, with traditional features such as oak beams and exposed Cotswold stone complemented by modern facilities, including two beautiful new bathrooms, a well presented kitchen and a conservatory, which allows the lovely back garden to be enjoyed whatever the weather.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of five people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There are lovely, peaceful front and back gardens, and the cottage has plenty of off-street parking, as well as secure storage space for bikes. Rose Tree Cottage is perfect for friends, couples or a family seeking peaceful seclusion in the Cotswolds, whilst being close to all the amenities of Stroud.


The front door of Rose Tree Cottage is accessed from the front garden and opens into a small porch, which then opens into a good sized kitchen. The following rooms are on the ground floor, which has underfloor heating throughout:

•Kitchen/dining room: A lovely, sociable room, with oak beams, a flagstone tiled floor and a cosy wood burning stove. The new kitchen includes a Rangemaster cooker, with double electric oven, electric grill and five gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine, tumble dryer and a Freesat TV. There is also a wooden fold out dining table, with seating for five;

•Bathroom: Contains a walk-in shower, toilet, wash basin and a heated towel rail.

Steep, narrow stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor landing, off which are all the other rooms of the cottage. The bedrooms are in the oldest part of the cottage, and all have lovely oak beams and look out over the front garden, whereas the family rooms are at the rear of the cottage, with direct access to the back garden:

•Living room: Looking out through the conservatory to the back garden, the modern living room contains a lovely oak floor, comfy seating for five, a gas flame fireplace and a Smart TV with blu-ray/DVD player;

•Conservatory: Accessed from the living room and with comfy seating for five, the new conservatory allows the lovely back garden to be enjoyed whatever the weather. The conservatory door opens directly into the garden;

•Bedroom 1: Contains a double bed;

•Bedroom 2: Contains a single bed;

•Bedroom 3: With a feature exposed Cotswold stone wall area, this room contains two single beds;

•Family bathroom: A beautiful recent addition to the cottage, facing out to the back garden, the bathroom contains a walk-in shower, a roll top bath, toilet, wash basin, heated towel rail and underfloor heating.

As the cottage sits on a hill, the front and back gardens are at different heights, with both being beautifully maintained and offering peaceful tranquillity. The front garden is at ground floor level and contains a raised deck area, with a wooden table, outdoor seating and a gas barbecue, whilst the back garden is at first floor level, offering wonderful views over to Rodborough Common, with additional outdoor seating. There are a number of fruit trees in the gardens, including pear, plum and fig trees, which guests are welcome to help themselves from.

To the side of the cottage is a large shed, which is perfect for storing bicycles in.

Plenty of quiet off-street parking is available to the front of the cottage, just outside the garden gate.

Encircled by five sweeping valleys opening out to the River Severn and made famous by Laurie Lee's novel 'Cider with Rosie', the scenery is dramatic around Stroud. The town and its surrounding villages provide a great base from which to explore the undiscovered south Cotswolds, as well as for day trips to Bristol and Bath.

At a time when the prevalence of chain stores has turned many of Britain's High Streets into copies of each other, Stroud is a welcome relief. With a bohemian vibe and an enviable array of independent shops, Stroud offers a unique shopping experience unrivalled by any town or city in the locality. Brimming with character and standing amidst the dramatic backdrop of the Five Valleys, Stroud has an eclectic mix of shops in the most beautiful of settings.

The award-winning Farmers' Market is held each Saturday and is one of the best in the country, described by Jasper Conran as 'the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds'. Throughout the summer months, street performers will entertain you every Saturday morning and there is a full programme of music and theatre throughout the year – a true hub of cultural events. Stroud is a place that repays investigation, especially for the quality and variety of artists at work in the area – you could also choose to take part in one of the many traditional workshops!

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.

Food & Drink


Stroud has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available:

•JRooL Bistro

•No 23 Bar & Bistro

•Sorrento Italian Restaurant

Stroud also has a wide range of food retailers, including an award winning Farmers' Market, held every Saturday.

South-West Cotswolds:

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider South-West Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stroud, Nailsworth, Cirencester and Tetbury containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also numerous traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the South-West Cotswolds. We recommend phoning in advance, to check opening times and availability of food, especially during the quieter months of the year. Many pubs accept children and dogs, but you should always check this in advance.
