We had a very pleasant long weekend at Washbrook Cottage which is situated in Painswick, a very pretty area of the Cotswolds. You can walk into Painswick along the Cotswold Way - the village has a couple of pubs and a nice café. It is a good base to explore the towns and villages of the Cotswolds. The cottage itself was very well-equipped and spacious (we were four adults and two children). The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. All in all, highly recommend.
We absolutely loved the peaceful and beautiful setting for this wonderful cottage. The cottage has everything you need and then some! Loads of character and lovely furnishings. We loved using an Aga for the first time. It made the scrambled eggs we cooked fresh from the hens on the farm taste even better! Nicki had all kinds of information available about local sights to see and things to do including several circular walks which we did and thoroughly enjoyed.
The village of Painswick is a short walk from the cottage and is a lovely ancient town of beautiful stone buildings, viewpoints, and a few very nice restaurants.
The cottage has its own lovely little garden, but we also enjoyed the whole setting which includes the restored mill in which the owners live, a stable, and little brook. The Cotswold Way hiking trail goes right past the cottage.
If you're looking for a beautiful place in the heart of the Cotswolds, look no further than Washbrook Cottage!
We stayed at Washbrooks Cottage for 3 nights at the beginning of April and we couldn't have asked for more. The cottage had everything we needed as a family with two young children. It was clean, quiet and beautifully decorated. The boys loved the huge box of toys under the stairs and a highchair, a cot and childrens plates/bowls were provided. The welcome hamper was greatly received too.
The cottage was a great base for us to explore The Cotswolds and is in a lovely part of Stroud. We were only 10 minutes away from the main shops if we needed anything but felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. We highly recommend a visit and will hopefully be back again soon.
Beautiful and well equipped cottage. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. Ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds-would highly recommend.
