About Pat Fevre

Hi we're Michele & Pat, owners of Orion Cottage.

Although we both live and work in London, we originally bought Orion Cottage to be closer to our autistic daughter who lives in a Camphill community near by. We decided to make our cottage available to guests as well.

Pat Fevre purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Pat Fevre chose Nailsworth

We first discovered the South Cotswolds to visit our daughter near Stroud, and instantly fell in love with its quirky charms, its arts & craft culture and its relaxed friendly atmosphere.

Driving through Nailsworth we discovered Ruskin Mill set in a most beautiful, magical valley.

What makes this cottage unique

Cosy yet spacious, stunning countryside views, walking distance to Nailsworth and to all its independent shops and restaurants.

Pretty secluded cottage garden with water feature. Easy access with own parking bay off village Green.

Wonderful cottage & stay :)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Orion Cottage for 3 nights in April with our 10 month old daughter & absolutely loved it! The pictures really don't do it justice, the place is much bigger and nicer than we expected, especially the garden which is a total sun trap. The cottage is so well equipped, definitely home from home. Our little girl slept well in the travel cot, and a high chair was also provided. Nailsworth is a lovely quiet town, and we also drove to lots of other lovely places within an hour away (Pat's guidebook he sent in advance was so helpful!) The only negative I can find is the bath very slowly empties when you're in it, I imagine the plug just need tightening/replacing, which I'm sure will be done pronto once this is read by Pat ;-) The driveway is quite steep which we found a bit tricky reversing off as our car is quite low to the ground, but there was always a free spot just outside too which we used a couple of times to make it easier (maybe we're just rubbish drivers!) We'd definitely stay at Orion Cottage again, thank you!

Three nights Orion Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time in Nailsworth, Woodchester and surrounding area. Some lovely walks and the weather was kind.

Lovely cottage - clean, tastefully decorated and so well equipped. We had everything we needed and more.

Great walks.

Would love to come back again and explore more.

property was clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

My Granddaughter and myself enjoyed our stay, the only trouble with location was that we had to do a lot of driving to visit any attractions, but we didn't let it spoil our time there

Snow and ice in Nailsworth does not stop us from having a great time

  • 4 of 5

The property was ideal for our purposes. Very well located for family visits over the festive period.

Despite the snow and ice which made getting around interesting we found lots to do and places to go within the locallity.

Overall property very nice; although back bedroom not really suitable for adults. Besides that though every thing else was fantastic. We will certainly consider the property again if we come to holiday in Nailsworth again - but perhaps when the weather has warmed up and the side roads are easier to manage. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family Christmas was made perfect when we stayed in Orion Cottage. We feel the photographs didn't do it justice, it was much bigger than we expected and the facilities were amazing providing everything from towels, kitchen cupboard condiments to even shampoo! Tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained we will definitely be going back again. Thanks so much for making our Christmas very memorable.

Perfect and Charming

Our stay couldn't have been better! The property was delightful, more spacious than expected and was in the perfect location for visits to the beautiful villages of the Cotswolds. Pat was extremely responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend the owners and this property.
