The Outhouse is a beautifully appointed, self-contained out-building. It includes a large bedroom, high quality bathroom with bath and shower, large living area/lounge with integral fully-equipped kitchen and parking for 2 cars or more. There is an outside sitting area to relax and enjoy the views both over to Cheltenham, as well as up towards the woods of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Chosen Hill nature reserve. It’s an ideal alternative to a hotel.
Cottage in Churchdown, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England - Rural Location Within 10-15 Mins Drive Of Central Gloucester & Cheltenham
We are a family of 4 with 2 young children (as well as a spaniel called Roxy, chickens, bantams, 2 goats and 2 sheep!). The opportunity to rent out accommodation became increasingly apparent as "The Outhouse" was in limited use other than by family on visits. We took about the task of upgrading it to be as special as possible. The infrastructure, both internally and externally, was almost perfect already - we just needed to invest in furnishings, which we haven't held back on. Given a chance we chill out in there when we can. We book it out for ourselves too!
Sarah purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Sarah chose Gloucester
The setting - it's amazing. We spent a long time looking for the right place for our family. The opportunity to rent out our "Outhouse" to business people and holiday makers was an added bonus. We've taken this opportunity very seriously and have focused on attention to detail. It's been available from the beginning of 2015 but we spent several months in 2014 getting it ready. For example, the wifi has been professionally installed as we felt the signal from the main house was too weak. The brand new TV lacked on the sound quality so we bought a special unit to make it sound far better. We could go on...
What makes this Cottage unique
It's very close to both Gloucester and Cheltenham but in a rural setting. The tree-lined drive - as you approach it - puts you in the right frame of mind after either a social or business trip. Amazing wildlife (green woodpeckers for example) is abundant. It's the perfect place to relax with many rural attractions, but close to city life.

An idyllic cottage set in beautiful countryside with amazing views.
We came for much needed R&R and could not have chosen a better place.
And thanks Sarah and Andy for your warm welcome and helpful advice.
Lovely to have you both stay... glad you were able to relax here :)
Lovely Place in peaceful location.
We had a lovely stay in this comfortable, spacious and clean lodge. It was in a lovely location, quiet and peaceful but within 15 mins drive to Cheltenham and Gloucester, there is such a lot to see and do In this area and we had a perfect weekend there. The hosts Sarah and Andy were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks for your kind review - hope to see you again!
We had such a lovely few days staying in The Outhouse! Great base for exploring The Cotswolds, nice local pub and a good selection of places to eat within walking distance. Sarah and Andy gave us such a warm welcome. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
Great accommodation and hosts
Had a great time in this beautiful location, we were made so welcome by the owners and the accommodation is so comfortable with everything you could possibly need. This is a great base to explore the area and the views are just spectacular, thoroughly recommended.
Light and airy very well-equipped. Friendly owners who made you feel very welcome immediately.
The property was a lovely barn conversion with modern, stylish interior with high ceilings. Impeccably clean, deceptively spacious and open plan. Woke up at 6.00am and watched the sun come up to the accompaniment of nothing but bird song. We only stayed the one night but immediately decided to book a week in May. Our 2 dogs were free to roam as the property is set well back from the main road. The owners' family were very keen to help us settle in and shared lots of useful information about the area. We reluctantly drove away feeling like we had made some new friends.
