Cosy and peaceful cottage, enjoying a peaceful village location on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, great for visiting some of the area's finest offerings.

Studded on the edge of the Cotswolds, this charming cottage is a top collar for a romantic countryside escape for two, not forgetting your canine companion! Just 4 miles from the vibrant city of Gloucester, the quintessential village of Upton St Leonard’s is surrounded by old English countryside and beautiful walks. Stroll through chocolate-box villages, navigate scenic trails and discover the rich local history of Gloucestershire. Light the wood burner and snuggle up on your return, letting sleeping dogs lie as they rest weary paws.

Adjoined to the owner’s home but guaranteed privacy, this rural retreat is an irresistible escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Bring Fido’s basket along and enjoy quiet evenings watching favourite films in the lounge, full to bursting after a delicious supper prepared in the well-equipped kitchen. The private courtyard outside is a real treat for lazy summer afternoons, where you can feast on BBQ delights and relax with chilled wine. At bedtime, climb the stairs to the cosy and intimate bedroom, made deliciously warm by the downstairs wood burner. Sink into the crisp linen for a restful night’s sleep, dreaming of the day’s adventures.

With so much on your doorstep, you’ll have plenty of choice between National Trust properties, exciting walks and dainty villages. Set tails wagging with a trip to Westbury Court, a Dutch water garden with acres of grounds to explore, where dogs on leads are very welcome. Gloucester, 4 miles away, is brimming with history and architecture, especially at Christmas where it is home to the famous Victorian markets. Be sure to stop off at one of the pubs or café’s along the Quays or near the Cathedral for a warm welcome and a treat for Rover!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a small, quaint cottage that is perfect if you are looking for a quiet break for 1 or 2. The back garden is small but picturesque, looking over the owners well kept back garden, we enjoyed breakfast and the early morning breeze there. Cottage is clean and well equipped.
