The cottages are situated in a beautiful unspoilt medieval Cotswold Non Working Farm complete with many of its original buildings including a Dovecote. They have been recently converted from cart sheds to the highest specification & include some of the original exposed beams,oak flooring to the first floors and wood burning stoves in the living area. This enchanting Farm has hardly changed in 400 years. Set in the Heart of the beautiful Cotswold Village of Nympsfield, the cottages are within a 2 minute walk of the Rose & Crown, a short walk to Coaley Peak escarpment View Point, this point gives spectacular views over the Berkeley Vale across the River Severn to the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons beyond.

Why Anne Gazzard chose Stroud District
Born and bred in the Cotswolds, Anne at Tetbury and myself at Woodchester we both love this area and we know that Nympsfield is a truly unspoilt and undiscovered gem with a church, a pub and a real old world village atmosphere.
What makes this Barn unique
Set in a real quiet village with very little traffic and within walking distance or short driving distance of many interesting, beautiful and stimulating places to visit.

A Wonderful Base for Exploring the Cotswolds
Our family of 3 stayed in the smallest of 3 units offered at this property (a one-bedroom) and found it clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The barn conversion units have been lovingly crafted to blend the best of old and new and are absolutely unique. The owners and their family were very friendly (including dogs and hens) and offered great advice for local shopping, pubs, and sights to see. There were also many maps, brochures, and materials inside the cottage which helped us plan our days there.
The local pub, the Rose & Crown, was unfortunately closed for renovations during our time there so it may be worth double-checking to see if it has reopened if that is a planned highlight for your stay!
We would highly recommend this vacation rental as a base to explore the Cotswolds - everything from Bath to Oxford is within very easy day-tripping distance. We plan on returning to stay sometime soon to further explore the Costwold Way hiking path.

An excellent choose for my parents holidaya
My parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The accommodation was brilliant and the owners so very friendly and helpful. Thank you 😊
We were walking the Cotswolds way which runs very close to this cottage so was ideal. Home from home ! Very good local village pub (cheap beer £2.70 pint!) large sainsburys 10 minutes drive. Plenty to see and do 1 weeks not really enough
A great location and property.
We had a relaxing time just walking with the dog all day across the fields and though the woodlands, walks are in all directions from the property (car was not required) then up to the pub for evening meal which was a two minute walk.
Owners are very friendly and are around if required.
Excellent conversion of an old Cotswolds barn, which provides all the amenities required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in the beautiful surroundings of the Gloucestershire countryside.
Hosts Anne, David and their son John are very welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive.
A great base for exploring the Cotswold villages, bars and restaurants, with some lovely shops in nearby Nailsworth. Also very accessible for the bigger towns and cities of Stroud, Gloucester and Bath (Bath being only 45 minutes by car and a truly worthwhile journey).
Good for dogs (although you do need to control them, due to the chickens that roam the enclosed farmyard), with great walks in the mature woodlands of Woodchester Park that is only 5 minutes away.
All in all a great place to stay. This was our second visit here and we can't wait until our next!
