Stroud, Cotswolds, England
Enjoy a slice of rural life in a traditional Cotswold stone cottage nestled high above the beautiful Golden Valley in the relatively undiscovered South Cotswolds, between Cirencester and Stroud.

With panoramic views from the house, a spectacular garden, south-facing windows in all rooms and log burners in both the lounge and the kitchen, Glen Cottage in beautiful Old Bussage, offers you an authentic piece of paradise all year round.

If it's exercise you're after, there's fantastic walking and mountain biking to be had right from the front door, whilst liquid refreshment and home cooked food can be found at the Ram Inn, a family-run pub just 5 minutes walk away.

Children are welcome at Glen Cottage, there's off street parking if you're coming by car and we'd encourage you to try public transport too - nearby St...

We had a lovely comfortable week at Glen Cottage even though we lost two days due to the snow. It is a well equipped cottage and ideal for the able bodied visitor. Although we were able to park our car with difficulty at the cottage...More

This little cottage was the perfect size for our family of four! It was also exactly what we needed as a home base for our exploration of Wales and the Cotswolds. Comfy beds, a nice place to cook and prepare meals, and space to hang...More

About the neighborhood
We are situated in the South Cotswolds. The nearest town is Stroud and if you are staying on a Saturday, then Stroud farmers market is a must. Stroud is not a typical Cotswolds town but it is much valued by locals for its community-feel. Local produce can easily be bought at the market and through Stroud community agriculture and there are numerous individual shops, organic cafés, farm shops, the museum in the park, performances at the Subscription Rooms and loads of local clubs and community groups.

Not much further in the opposite direction is Cirencester, 'capital of the Cotswolds', a beautiful town with a long history. Visit the Corinium Museum to learn about Cirencester in Roman times or wander round the many individual shops, cafés and restaurants. Don't miss the Corn Ha...
