This enchanting Farm has hardly changed in 400 years. Set in the Heart of the beautiful Cotswold Village of Nympsfield, the cottages are within a 2 minute walk of the Rose & Crown, a short walk to Coaley Peak escarpment View Point, this point gives spectacular views over the Berkeley Vale across the River Severn to the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons beyond.

Why Anne Gazzard chose Stroud district
Born and bred in the Cotswolds, Anne at Tetbury and myself at Woodchester we both love this area and we know that Nympsfield is a truly unspoilt and undiscovered gem with a church, a pub and a real old world village atmosphere.

Set in a real quiet village with very little traffic and within walking distance or short driving distance of many interesting, beautiful and stimulating places to visit.

We were walking the Cotswolds way which runs very close to this cottage so was ideal. Home from home ! Very good local village pub (cheap beer £2.70 pint!) large sainsburys 10 minutes drive. Plenty to see and do 1 weeks not really enough
A great location and property.
We had a relaxing time just walking with the dog all day across the fields and though the woodlands, walks are in all directions from the property (car was not required) then up to the pub for evening meal which was a two minute walk.
Owners are very friendly and are around if required.
Excellent conversion of an old Cotswolds barn, which provides all the amenities required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in the beautiful surroundings of the Gloucestershire countryside.
Hosts Anne, David and their son John are very welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive.
A great base for exploring the Cotswold villages, bars and restaurants, with some lovely shops in nearby Nailsworth. Also very accessible for the bigger towns and cities of Stroud, Gloucester and Bath (Bath being only 45 minutes by car and a truly worthwhile journey).
Good for dogs (although you do need to control them, due to the chickens that roam the enclosed farmyard), with great walks in the mature woodlands of Woodchester Park that is only 5 minutes away.
All in all a great place to stay. This was our second visit here and we can't wait until our next!
