Beautiful Canalside Location - Stroud

We live in a beautiful and peaceful canalside community in Stroud. In the heart of the five valleys there are many beauty spots to visit, eclectic Stroud is just a short walk down the canal and Bristol and Cheltenham are within driving distance for big city entertainments.

We have a four bedroom home, with our suite being on the top floor with it`s own bathroom and dressing room, three bedrooms on the first floor (one single, one double and one study with a double sofa bed), an openplan kitchen diner out onto the garden and a dual aspect living room with views of the canal from the sofa. The only room without canal views is our daughters single bedroom which looks out onto the garden. The house not only has the canal to the side but a large communal green to the front. We are book, movie, games and music (cd`s/ vinyl galore!) lovers so there is plenty of evening entertainment in the house for those more inclined to a quiet/ less sociable life as we are!

Any people staying would have to be cat friendly and happy to feed our very low maintenance and friendly three cats twice a day :)

About the location

Stroud and the surrounding area has SO many things to see and do. Especially great for walkers (Rodborough common with its free roaming cows/ horses/ donkeys, as well as beautiful and view LADEN Minchinhaptom and Selsely commons) there is also the Stroud Farmers Market every Saturday and our very favourite canalside wine bar, Kitsch, is just a 500 metre walk (if that!) along the canal and the canal boat, Endevour, which is permanently moored on the green to the front of our house, runs regular trips up and down the canal on weekends. The Cotswolds are gastro pub heaven! There are any number of amazing tourist spots within drving distance - Westonbirt Arboretum, Slimbridge Wetlands and Wildfowl Trust, Woodchester Mansion, Cirencester Water Park, Badminton etc etc etc. Amazing Cirencester and Bath also day trip-able and well worth the effort!
