Location Information

Rose Tree Cottage is located in the vibrant market town of Stroud, an unspoilt town in the heart of the stunning "Five Valleys" region, which benefits from a variety of popular country pubs, independent shops, tea rooms and restaurants. It is also home to the multi award-winning Farmers' Market hosted every Saturday.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Tesco's superstore, Sainsbury's and a Waitrose's in Stroud.
Surrounded by glorious countryside, there are many wonderful cycle routes and walks on its doorstep, including popular walks through Rodborough Common which has spectacular views across Woodchester Valley and to the River Seven on a clear day.
Strouds sits in the heart of the South Cotswolds and is perfectly placed for visiting the much loved towns and villages of Painswick, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton and Cirencester.


The cottage is pretty and quite spacious, historic but modernised in the bathrooms, kitchen and conservatory. It serves as a good base for exploring Stroud and the surrounding areas by car or foot. There is a bus which stops close to the cottage (although it's currently diverted some days due to road works). We had a couple of issues during our stay which were promptly resolved. Overall, the house is well equipped for a self catering stay. The only issue to mention would be the kitchen table which isn't very sturdy and could do with replacing (plus only has 4 chairs). I would return or recommend it to others.

Thank you for the lovely review and recommendation, Joanna. We’re pleased you enjoyed staying at Rose Tree Cottage and found the hosts to be helpful and responsive. The owners appreciate your feedback and will check the kitchen table thoroughly, however the table is a large solid oak gateleg table with two hinged leaves. The table is in good condition, however the usual care does need to be taken when the leaves are raised, thanks again for bringing this to our attention. There are 7 chairs in the cottage, 4 are always kept in the kitchen and unless the table is extended fully a 5th chair is not usually needed and would be in the way, especially if a highchair is required. It’s great to hear that you would happily return, we hope to see you again soon!

Rose Tree Cottage had everything that we needed for our Cotswolds holiday - both our children said they'd love to live there. It was well equipped, with comfortable rooms and in a good location just outside Stroud - it's roughly a ten minute walk or very short drive to Waitrose and about a twenty five minute walk to the main part of the town. The bedrooms are all well-sized, with comfortable beds and plenty of places to store clothes etc. The kitchen could easily facilitate cooking meals and houses a two leaf table large enough for four or five to eat at. The upstairs bathroom is huge with an excellent shower and the downstairs shower room/toilet is a very useful facility. The front garden is secluded and the raised area was a great place to eat and sit out watching all the birds of prey. We didn't use the back garden due to lack of shade for most of the afternoon. The stairs, although quite steep, were no problem for us, and we did have some older people in our party. There are a small number of good restaurants in Stroud that you can walk to (we particularly liked Tamari-Gi ,The Spice Lounge and Stroud Brewery), although we did need to drive out to find some more options for evening meals - Nailsworth was a good choice. Although quite small, the town has an excellent street and farmers market on Saturdays and a few interesting shops. We contacted the owner on a couple of occasions and she was quick to respond and very helpful - even sending someone round to help us with the BBQ function.

Thank you for the lovely review, Sally. We’re so pleased to hear that your family enjoyed a relaxing stay at Rose Tree Cottage and found the hosts to be friendly and accommodating. We hope to see you again soon!

We had a very relaxing and peaceful two nights at Rose Tree Cottage. It is beautifully decorated throughout and the hosts have provided all the amenities you could possibly want. We were delighted that they left a delicious lemon drizzle cake for us. We really could not have asked for anything more. The cottage is in an ideal location to explore Stroud and the Cotswolds and we had a lovely and challenging four hour walk through the fields and forests. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

It is great to hear you had a relaxing stay at Rose Tree Cottage and would have liked to stay longer. We hope we can welcome you back another time so you can continue your exploration of the Cotswolds.
