Maltings is a 3 storey, Cotswold stone cottage located in a quiet lane in Nailsworth yet within a few minutes flat walk of pubs, restaurants and independent shops. Two private parking spaces, two bathrooms, comfortable, hypoallergenic mattresses on all beds for a sound sleep, a pretty courtyard garden and stylish furnishings complete the picture. The Nailsworth stream meanders its way beyond the garden and can be heard babbling from the master bedroom.
The spacious top floor with king sized bed and ensuite shower room is dual aspect with expansive views over the Nailsworth Valley to the rear and the ancient Brewery Lane to the front. There is little traffic down this tiny lane but horses are led daily to the fields beyond.
