Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Minchinhampton - Hillcrest Cottage
Upstairs balcony with STUNNING VIEWS & from all rooms- sleeps 4, BBQ terracee
The VIEWS are truly STUNNING by day and by night, and the cottage is lovely too...' one of those places which stay in your memories for ever'.... the main bedroom is large with a white corner sofa looking out onto the balcony and down the Golden Valley... 'so amazing!'
The main bedroom is lovely with kingsize bed and pocket sprung mattress,it looks out onto the balcony and the AMAZING VIEWS.
The second bedroom is more cottage style with twin beds and pocket sprung mattresses, smaller,but has amazing views too. Bathroom has bath with over shower is 'not large but perfectly formed !'
Downstairs is semi open plan. The lounge has a log burner( full central heating throughout) but the kitchen and dining area is so socialable that it is a pleasure to cook while being part of the party.There is an 'everhot' cooker which is so easy to use ( like a mini aga but I show you how to use it, when I welcome you in...) as Sunday is roast - perfect!
Double doors from lounge and double doors from dining room and the front door open out onto the well maintained garden and the fabulous views but then you drop down to a BBQ terrace with garden furniture etc ..great for morning coffee while planning your day. There is garden lighting and as darkness falls the sparkling lights in the distance are truly magical.
The area ,known as 'the undiscovered Cotswolds' has so much to offer... There is genuinely so much to do and see .

Guestbook comments from the manager
"Stunning views, beautiful comfortable cosy cottage, and the host provides a wealth of information to make the most of your stay."
Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in the Cotswolds and coming 'home' to the cottage every evening. The cottage is located well with panoramic views over the valley towards Stroud.
The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need for a stay home from home and the log burner make for a cosy warm cottage.
Our two and half year old especially enjoyed the box of soft toys in the lounge and the cuddly doggies in his bedroom! "
Highly recommend Hillcrest.
