Overview

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Chalford, Stroud, Cotswolds, England
Hope Cottage is a beautiful 18th Century detached property in the hillside village of France Lynch in the South Cotswolds. Sitting in its own private south-facing garden, this romantic cottage has wonderful views across the valley, with excellent walking and plenty of interesting places to visit. The cottage is newly refurbished and combines period charm - oak beams and exposed stone walls - with modern conveniences. On sunny evenings nothing can beat sitting out in the garden, or watching the birds fly down the valley from the upstairs picture window in the large landing area, while downstairs the woodburner keeps the chill away on winter evenings. There is a great little pub at the end of the lane and numerous others within easy reach. The towns of Cirencester and Stroud - with its famous Farmers Market - are within a 15 minute drive, a...

Stayed at Hope Cottage for a couple of nights in order to do the five valleys walk and it was lovely. Sarah really went the extra mile, dropped off extra kindling for the wood burner. Tea making facilities and even some hobnobs were on hand when we arrived. Sarah also made it clear she would be easy to get hold...

Myself and my best friend Sarah was looking for somewhere to stop whilst we visited the horse trials close by. When we turned up we were delighted to find the cottage was more than we could have imagined. It was in a beautiful setting and had such a cosy and cute feel that we wished we'd have had more time...

About the neighborhood
France Lynch is a hillside village between Stroud and Cirencester. It isn't on the way to anywhere, so is quiet, self contained and the perfect spot to spend a restful or romantic break. There are some great walks direct from the door - many of which pass, or end up at, a good pub - and if walking seems too strenuous there is a great little pub just a few minutes away at the end of the lane.
