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.

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.
