About Gemma Carter
I live in England with my husband and son. We are beef farmers and live on the farm. We absolutely love where we live in Gloucestershire which is why my husband's family decided to renovate the cottage and make it a holiday home for others to enjoy.
Gemma Carter purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Gemma Carter chose Stroud District
The cottage is half a mile from our house and the farm and had been a dream project for a very long time. The area is so beautiful and peaceful and a bit of a hidden gem as it is just outside the busyness of the main Cotswolds but with the enjoyment of the scenery. It is close to the M5 so within 20 minutes you can be on your way to a city but be back to the quiet countryside for the evening.
What makes this Cottage unique
As we are 6 miles from the M5 we are a perfect position to base your holiday from. We have a train station 3 miles in the village which has many major routes travel through. You can be in Birmingham or Cardiff in 40 minutes. The cottage is located right on the doorstep (literally) of the Cotswold way which is perfect for walking and cycling.

Perfect cottage for our stay - and great views of the River Severn! Very well equipped, everything very clean, and lots of space for the 6 adults. Welcome basket much appreciated! Quiet, and easy access to lovely walking routes. 10min from local train station, and 20min from Slimbridge and Westonbirt Arboretum (highly recommended visits).
This house has everything you could possibly need. It was super clean and cosy. Perfect attention to detail and a lovely welcome basket. We brought some basic stuff (coffee, toilet paper, dishwasher tabs), but didn’t need any of it, because it was all there. The children loved the big box of toys and the kitchen was really well equipped. We all loved our private bathrooms, what a luxury! It’s in a beautiful location, looking out the window you can see the hills. Although the weather wasn’t that good, we really enjoyed ourselves. We will certainly book it again if we’re in the area!
Fantastic location and facilities
We very much enjoyed our stay at Orchard Cottage. Peaceful, walks from the doorstep but within a few miles of lots of places of interest. Perfect for a family gathering. The cottage has everything we needed. Thanks
Fantastic property. Fantastic hosts!
We stayed at the cottage during the weekend of 2nd-5th March 2018, during the worst of the 'beast from the east'. Given that our party included three young children, and we were all travelling long distances from various parts of the country, we were naturally concerned about the weather and road conditions. The owner, Gemma, could not have been more helpful or understanding. We had arranged a food delivery for the weekend and Gemma offered to be at the property the day before we were due to arrive to make sure that it arrived safely. We were provide with regular weather and travel updates and were even offered an extra night in the cottage if we were unable to make it on the Friday. On the Friday, 2 of the 4 couples made it, but we both got stuck near to the cottage. Gemma and her husband were on hand to help us the last part of the way, and were so patient and understanding even though we felt fairly foolish for having gotten stuck. The cottage itself is wonderful and Coaley and the surrounding area is beautiful. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and is particularly well equipped for young children, with a large box full of toys, travel cots, high chairs and everything else a family with young children could need. We will definitely be visiting again, hopefully when the weather is a little better!
Fabulous property in a lovely location
This property has all the creature comforts and is a home from home. Everything has been thought of, and suits everyone of all ages.
Beautiful cottage experience without fault!
Me and my family have stayed in a few of these cottages and this was by far the best. We had a wonderful stay at the cottage and such value for money. Gemma was brilliant, quick to answer questions and very accommodating to our needs. Even being able to provide logs for the fire and extra children beds. We definitely hope to return some day soon.
