Home with lovely views - Cotswold home swap

Our newly renovated house has three bedrooms, two doubles and a small single with a pull out bed underneath. There is a shower room upstairs and a second toilet/shower in the utility downstairs. The large living room has a cozy wood burner, TV with Netflix/Now TV and decent wifi. The dining area seats 4-6 and the conservatory off the living room has a small table with a great view. The new kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher and range cooker and the laundry/utility is handy for dirty boots and dogs! Steps from the conservatory lead down the garden (more steps) to a summer house (on Airbnb), BBQ and decking area. There is a large lawn with trampoline and a separate vegetable garden.

We do have a small well behaved dog (except for chasing cats!) and would like to bring her with us in the UK sometimes (not Edinburgh). She does not shed hair and sleeps downstairs. Your dog would be very welcome as long as they don't go upstairs or sleep on the beds.

About the location

We are located in the lovely market town of Stroud in the south Cotswolds. Our house is a 10-12 minute walk to town. It is down a long hill so allow extra time coming back up! We are about a 20 minute drive from the M5 which takes you to Bristol in 40 minutes or 20 minutes to Gloucester, and 30 to Cheltenham. There is a local bus service and also a station in Stroud with direct trains to London Paddington in 90 minutes. Stroud offers many independent shops and an award winning weekly farmers market. There are numerous pubs and restaurants, a museum, cinema, theatre and music venues. We find something happening most nights of the week to suit all tastes.

Situated in the five valleys with beautiful countryside all around, there are lots of waymarked walks including the well known Cotswold way. Walks from the house can be taken along Laurie Lee's beloved Slad valley and the fields below are ideal for dog walking without getting the car out.
