About the Owner

Ann and I have owned the cottage since 1987.

We have been married since 1978 and this was our first home. We both work locally and enjoy our spare time tending the large garden.

We have always lived in the area and appreciate the beauty of the Cotswolds. We have four grown up children who were brought up here and love the peace and quiet of the countryside. Our Shetland pony lives in our field next to the cottages and we are keen on encouraging wildlife, deer, rabbits, badgers, foxes and pheasants who all arrive for feeding at different times of the day. One of our joys is to watch the herons, kingfishers and dippers amongst others that come to feed in the brook running through the garden. My hobbies include hand printing with antique letterpress machines and walking Evie our lurcher.

Location

From the Owner

We bought the property in 1987 but had already been living in the row since 1978. We love the area because it was secluded, quiet and full of wildlife. It was only half an hours walk from Stroud and 10 minutes from the local pub. There had been an old Woollen Mill on the site called Vatch Mills until 1900 and the area is steeped with history.

Facilities

From the Owner

The property has walls almost 2ft thick when warm these walls hold in the heat in winter and keep the place cool in the summer. There is always wildlife around if not in the garden or our field then it is trout jumping in the stream or the Heron making a slow flight down the meadow. Of course the badgers are never late for their supper.
