Chalford, Stroud, Cotswolds, England
Hope Cottage is a beautiful 18th Century detached property in the hillside village of France Lynch in the South Cotswolds. Sitting in its own private south-facing garden, this romantic cottage has wonderful views across the valley, with excellent walking and plenty of interesting places to visit. The cottage is newly refurbished and combines period charm - oak beams and exposed stone walls - with modern conveniences. On sunny evenings nothing can beat sitting out in the garden, or watching the birds fly down the valley from the upstairs picture window in the large landing area, while downstairs the woodburner keeps the chill away on winter evenings. There is a great little pub at the end of the lane and numerous others within easy reach. The towns of Cirencester and Stroud - with its famous Farmers Market - are within a 15 minute drive, a...

We have just returned from Hope Cottage with our dog Betsy. This was our first holiday away together and it was wonderful. Sarah made us feel very welcome in her cottage. Thanks for tea and biscuits on arrival. Very thoughtful touch. The Cottage is beautiful. Full of charm and character and so very clean. Views are amazing. Sitting up stairs...

This cottage is adorable, cosy, with bags of character. We have never had such a relaxing holiday, ever. Sitting in the upstairs lounge or the garden patio, you can gaze over Golden Valley, listen to the birds tweeting, and de-stress to your heart's content! Fantastic pub a minute's walk away, with others minutes away. The immediate area is a dog-walker's...

Hope Cottage was a truly beautiful place to stay. The cottage had real character and was perfect for us and our dog. The courtyard outside was so pretty with wonderful views. It was very peaceful and serene. Sarah emailed regularly prior to our stay and although wasn't around (as on holiday herself), gave us the name and number of someone...

About the neighbourhood
France Lynch is a hillside village between Stroud and Cirencester. It isn't on the way to anywhere, so is quiet, self contained and the perfect spot to spend a restful or romantic break. There are some great walks direct from the door - many of which pass, or end up at, a good pub - and if walking seems too strenuous there is a great little pub just a few minutes away at the end of the lane.
Getting around
Public transport is limited here - there is a bus which goes to Stroud (the nearest town) but the service isn't regular. You really need a car if you're coming to stay, although it is possible to get taxis back from Stroud or Cirencester if you go out at night.
