About Gemma Carter

I live in England with my husband and son. We are beef farmers and live on the farm. We absolutely love where we live in Gloucestershire which is why my husband's family decided to renovate the cottage and make it a holiday home for others to enjoy.

Gemma Carter purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Gemma Carter chose Stonehouse

The cottage is half a mile from our house and the farm and had been a dream project for a very long time. The area is so beautiful and peaceful and a bit of a hidden gem as it is just outside the busyness of the main Cotswolds but with the enjoyment of the scenery. It is close to the M5 so within 20 minutes you can be on your way to a city but be back to the quiet countryside for the evening.

What makes this cottage unique

As we are 6 miles from the M5 we are a perfect position to base your holiday from. We have a train station 3 miles in the village which has many major routes travel through. You can be in Birmingham or Cardiff in 40 minutes. The cottage is located right on the doorstep (literally) of the Cotswold way which is perfect for walking and cycling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were privileged to be the first family to stay at the beautiful Orchard Cottage. It has been an amazing holiday and the attention to detail and work you have put in to Orchard Cottage is fantastic. There are so many wonderful places to visit in the surrounding area and we had the perfect weather to enjoy them in! We look forward to coming back next year! - The Wynne family July '14



We've had an amazing few days! Thank you so much for the wonderful warm welcome and a lovely stay in this gorgeous house! Hope to see you again! - The Van Eeden family August '14



What a beautiful cottage. So nicely done and you made us so welcome. We couldn't ask for more, we had a brilliant week here. - Boffin family August '14

Attractive house with fantastic views in beautiful countryside.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very comfortable family break in the property which is stunning both inside and out. The house is surrounded by idyllic countryside which provides a very relaxing and peaceful getaway. The interior of the house was tastefully decorated, being both modern and functional. We had everything we needed with a well equipped kitchen and other useful extras such as a BBQ and toys. The size of the property was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 5 young children. The children were pleased with their very own living room, attached to the main living room and the kitchen diner was ideal.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for our stay - and great views of the River Severn! Very well equipped, everything very clean, and lots of space for the 6 adults. Welcome basket much appreciated! Quiet, and easy access to lovely walking routes. 10min from local train station, and 20min from Slimbridge and Westonbirt Arboretum (highly recommended visits).

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need. It was super clean and cosy. Perfect attention to detail and a lovely welcome basket. We brought some basic stuff (coffee, toilet paper, dishwasher tabs), but didn’t need any of it, because it was all there. The children loved the big box of toys and the kitchen was really well equipped. We all loved our private bathrooms, what a luxury! It’s in a beautiful location, looking out the window you can see the hills. Although the weather wasn’t that good, we really enjoyed ourselves. We will certainly book it again if we’re in the area!

Fantastic location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Orchard Cottage. Peaceful, walks from the doorstep but within a few miles of lots of places of interest. Perfect for a family gathering. The cottage has everything we needed. Thanks

Fantastic property. Fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage during the weekend of 2nd-5th March 2018, during the worst of the 'beast from the east'. Given that our party included three young children, and we were all travelling long distances from various parts of the country, we were naturally concerned about the weather and road conditions. The owner, Gemma, could not have been more helpful or understanding. We had arranged a food delivery for the weekend and Gemma offered to be at the property the day before we were due to arrive to make sure that it arrived safely. We were provide with regular weather and travel updates and were even offered an extra night in the cottage if we were unable to make it on the Friday. On the Friday, 2 of the 4 couples made it, but we both got stuck near to the cottage. Gemma and her husband were on hand to help us the last part of the way, and were so patient and understanding even though we felt fairly foolish for having gotten stuck. The cottage itself is wonderful and Coaley and the surrounding area is beautiful. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is particularly well equipped for young children, with a large box full of toys, travel cots, high chairs and everything else a family with young children could need. We will definitely be visiting again, hopefully when the weather is a little better!
