The STUNNING VIEWS from stylish rooms sets the characterful Hillcrest cottage apart from other cottages. From the luxury main bedroom step out onto the romantic balcony into EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS and they really are! Please read the reviews!
Well equipped throughout and comfortable for 4 guests enjoying the contemporary style of open plan living, the cottage is homely and welcoming. Many guests say they so look forward to returning to the cottage and the end of the day to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine.
With walks and great pubs from the doorstep, eating in or out is easy. A lovely BBQ terrace for your sole use is a great place to watch the magical lights after dark along the valley. We have tried to add the touches of luxury to make it your home from home.
In this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, known as the "Undiscovered...

Hillcrest Cottage is exactly where the name says. It is a beautiful cottage on the crest of the hill off of Brimscomb Road. It's about halfway from the Commons (where cattle and horses roam freely) and Stroud. Parking is a bit on the risky side but other than that you will be hard pressed to find something wrong. A large...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay. I think we are lucky with the open plan living space and large main bedroom letting the cottage feel quite spacious. We saw the fridge freezer in a cottage we stayed at and decided it would be perfect for Hillcrest too!- I am always looking for ideas...

Hillcrest proved a perfect base for five midweek March nights in the southern Cotswolds. The house itself was full of character throughout - enhanced by Tricia's artistic accomplishment and style and Rob's workmanship in wood. They combined to make the interior warmly attractive, particularly the large and beautiful main bedroom with its stunning balcony views over the Golden Valley towards...

We are so pleased you loved this "quieter" part of the Cotswolds and Hillcrest cottage with its quite unique views. We feel priviledged to live in this area and it is so lovely to share it. The walking around here is pretty amazing and being spoilt with characterful pubs is such a bonus!... and of course we would love to...

Staying at the cottage was wonderful partly due to the panoramic views over the valleys. The cottage is beautiful and the artwork by Tricia proves she is a very talented lady as well as very welcoming! The cottage is central to so many stunning locations in the Cotswolds and everything is easy to get to. We had a magical stay...

Management response:

So really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hillcrest cottage. We feel it is quite special and more so, because of those stunning panoramic views. Yes the artwork and framed photos are mine and all inspired locally, I have been a textiles and home product designer, so I love painting, accessorising and playing with the colours in the cottage which...

About the neighborhood
I can highly recommend a visit to the award winning Farmers Market in Stroud every Saturday am, buzzing with vibrance & atmosphere you will absolutely love it. Try the querky Stroud brewery for Saturday eve with live music & very tasty homemade pizzas. This area boasts some of the best scenery in the Cotswolds with 5 valleys converging on Stroud. Amazing walks, plenty of golf courses.
Ideal location for Gatcombe and Badminton eventing,riding ,gliding,ballooning, waterskiing on lakes, clay pigeon shooting, arts and crafts courses, antiques trail etc - we can help to organise activities too.
Getting around
Stroud train station brings you within 2 miles of the cottage from London Paddington. There is a bus service but also car hire in Stroud itself , which I can help with. Sometimes I can collect guests from the station and return but if not, there are always plenty of taxis.
Alternatively walking and cycling lets you see the beautiful countryside at a slower place or even hire electric powered bikes for that extra push up the hills.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Bristol: 31.1 mi
Railway: Stroud: 1.9 mi
It is approx 1 &1/2 hours from Heathrow airport to the cottage. Easy routes via M4 or M5 motorways, though there are some beautiful scenic routes to try instead of the fast lane to get you in holiday mood. Fast trains from London Paddington direct to Stroud station, are approx 1& 1/2 hours. Stroud station is 2 miles from the cottage.
There is a local bus station in Stroud which is regular and a reliable taxi rank at the station. National coaches drop off in Stroud too.
If needing a hire car, I can usually help taking you to MVR in Stroud for a good range of cars
