About the property

Flax Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 5 guests in 3 bedrooms

Welcome to Flax Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Flax Cottage is a former weaver's cottage and is part of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages, located on a peaceful lane, in the heart of the beautiful village of Painswick. The village is well known as the "Queen of the Cotswolds" and is famous for its 99 yew trees in the ancient churchyard, as well as its stunning setting, surrounded by the glorious countryside of the Painswick Valley. Flax Cottage is well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

The cosy cottage has been beautifully redecorated and refurbished by its owners, to maximise the space and to highlight its character features, including stone mullion windows, exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak beams and a lovely wood burning stove. The traditional character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two flatscreen TVs and a new kitchen.

Flax Cottage sleeps a maximum of five people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom. There is an enclosed back garden and free on street parking is readily available. The cottage is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family with older children, looking for a peaceful getaway.

Please note that only children aged five and over are permitted at Flax Cottage.

Housekeeping

Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services may be available on request.

Child friendly facilities

Regrettably, due to a gap between the cottage and the garden steps, and a low window seat in bedroom 2, Flax Cottage does not accept children under the age of five.

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

This is an old property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs from the first to the second floor, a low beam on these stairs, multiple floors, a low window seat in bedroom 2 and a relatively steep garden, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

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.

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.

Car: Flax 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 Flax 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.
