Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Painswick. Would loved some more kitchen equipment, for instance an oven tray. But the cottage is great in the centre of the village.

Hill Cottage- delightful

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean, warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated cottage. Maryanne, the owner, was very accommodating in providing for bicycle storage. Car parking directly outside not always possible, but could always get a nearby park. It is also a 2 minute walk to town attractions and shops. Excellent value, even though only 2 of us stayed. Recommended

Very Good Spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a very good spacious cottage with 2 living rooms (one on ground floor and one on 1st floor), kitchen and bathroom (1st floor), 2 good size bedrooms (2nd floor) and nice outside space for sitting in. The cottage is renovated and furnished to a high standard and is in a very central location in Painswick. I would rent again.

NB: Note that one bedroom leads into the other so suitable for family and close friends.

Car Hire is recommended for exploring the surrounding area. There are good bus links to Cheltenham and Stroud. The nearest train and main bus station is located in Stroud which is a 5 min drive away. Bristol Airport is a 45 min drive.


The cottage is in the heart of Painswick. All local amenities are within easy walking distance.

Further Details:

There are many activities on offer in the surrounding area. Stroud has an exceptional farmers market every Saturday and an arts and crafts market on a Sunday. Painswick is located close to the river Severn and within easy driving distance of the Forest of Dean. Gloucester has a thriving historical dock area and of course the famous Cathedral.
