Painswick house description

The Old Chapel is a contemporary, Cotswolds family holiday home, sleeping up to 10 (maximum 8 adults).
This beautiful, self-catering accommodation is set on the steep slopes of the Slad Valley, in the heart of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most picturesque and unspoiled locations in England.
Described by The Guardian (December 2013) as 'one of the best cool holiday self-catering accommodations in the Cotswolds...it's both homely and stylish.'
The hamlet of Slad, immortalised by Laurie Lee in his famous novel 'Cider with Rosie', boasts stunning views, a choice of great walks and one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds – The Woolpack.
The converted chapel, built in 1865 and thoroughly renovated a few years ago, provides contemporary, stylish and very comfortable holiday accommodation. 4 bedrooms, large state-of-the-art kitchen-diner and huge open plan living space makes The Old Chapel a unique Cotswolds holiday let.
Surrounded by open meadows, woodland and rolling hills, with walks directly from the door, there's plenty to keep families busy here, all year round.
The Old Chapel is not your average Cotswolds cottage (no low ceilings, no cramped living space). It's a large, unique, stylish family holiday home with wonderful views inside and out.

Car: Recommended

The Cotswolds is designated as England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' – as an area it’s 100 miles north to south.

Here in the South Cotswolds the area has a slightly wilder nature, especially in the five beautiful valleys around Stroud, of which Slad Valley is considered the most unspoiled. These are the real Cotswold Hills; nature reserves, meadows, wild orchids, steep climbs and wonderful views, away from the crowds of tourists you find in north Gloucestershire.

Two miles away is Painswick, 'Queen of the Cotswolds', one of many beautiful villages in the area. The Rococo Garden is a must, and you have a choice of stunning mansions, abbeys and castles within a short drive.

Closer to home - a 2 minute walk away - is the famous Woolpack Inn, a timeless pub that serves fantastic food and ales and one of the best views you can imagine.

Nearby Stroud has an award-winning farmers' market on Saturdays, and swimming, cinema and bowling to keep children happy.

Other Activities: horse riding, golf, hiking cinema, bowling, country pubs, gliding, shooting
