GETAWAY COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
What an excellent find - we thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in this cottage.

The description is accurate, the cottage well equipped and spotlessly clean. Tastefully decorated and furnished. Dishwasher and AGA oven and every other bit of kitchen equipment we could want. Entertainment was with satelite and DVD players in the main bedroom and a comprehensive VHS, satellite, DVD and surround sound system in the main living room.

Adequate towels were provided and the beds were comfortable.

Lovely conservatory with underfloor heating so the stone floor was comfortable in bare feet in January. The main lounge was simailarly comfortable and fast wireless (or wired) broadband internet connection was available all round the house.

The location is near the centre of the village, but down a private path so very, very quiet. This did mean carrying bags etc up the path, but that was no great hardship. Small garden with pond and seating (not used by us as we went in January).

The village is well located for visits to beautiful town such as Cirencester, Cheltenham, Gloucester and many more, all within a short drive. It is also very convenient for a vast number of possible walks, short or long, around the Cotswolds. The cottage is so nice though you could spend the whole holiday not going out simply chilling.

There are many pubs and restaurants with good value excellent food and beer nearby, see a Good Pub Guide. There are several eateries within a couple of minutes walk in the village.

It was delightful dealing with the owner and her representative.

The downsides? Not really any. Parking might be tight, but we never had to park more than 1 minute walk away. Water pressure is a little low, but I guess that is to be expected in a Cotswold Village. There was still enough for a reasonable shower, and there was no problem of hot water running out. Significantly disabled guests might struggle with the steps and path to the front door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily go again. Good value for money in my opinion given the level of facilities provided and the location.

I would have no reservations at all about recommending this find.

PATHWAYS: BETTER THAN ADVERTISED!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I had always wanted to spend and extended period of time in the Cotswolds.The four weeks we spent living at Pathways made it our perfect vacation. It was better than we expected and the Jacobs we extremely helpful with a couple of minor glitches we ran into when we first arrived. The village was the quintessential Cotswold setting: great restaurants, a fine pub and the one "convenience" store in town had everything you might need including fresh vegetables. Seversa farms offered locally sourced beef, pork and chicken. You really never had to hit one of he supermarkets in Stroud. I could go on and on about the cottage but I would just be repeating what others have raved about. Before we left, I even had learned to love the AGA! Our mornings in the kitchen were some of the most pleasant moments we spent in the house. There were even several days spent in the conservatory when the sun was up.

AN EXCELLENT STAY IN A BEAUTIFUL COTSWOLD VILLAGE.

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week at this cottage in the beautiful town of Painswick. If one is interested in Roman Britain (as we were, having just hiked The Hadrians Wall Path) it is centrally located with easy access to Chedworth, Cirencester and, further south, Bath. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking in addition to The Cotswold Way, which passes through the village. And the cottage itself is wonderfully decorated and well appointed with everything one would need. And if you are a chef, the Aga is a wonder.

The owners were terrific to deal with, including helping us long distance to get the gas stove working in the living room during freakish, sub-freezing temperatures during our stay in October!

If the over-wrought Chipping Campdens, Burtons-on-the-Water and Burfords is more your thing, perhaps this isn't for you but, for us, Painswick was perfect.

GREAT HOME BASE

  • 4 out of 5
Absolutely loved this place! Great location for day trips to Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Exford, Stratford-upon-Avon. Lots of light and cozy warm at the same time. Some minor difficulties with the mechanicals, but they were attended to and nothing we couldn't work around easily in the mean time. Definitely would stay here again.

A SO LOVELY PLACE !

  • 5 out of 5
Painswick is a pretty village and really deserves its nickname, «The Queen of the Cotswold». The Pathways is absolutely lovely, cosy and charming.We stayed here in early fall and appreciate feeling the warmth as we returned home after a walk in the narrow streets around. The conservatory, where we can relax, read, listen music, and just have a look on the pretty garden next to the house, is fantastic. So, on a very rainy day, it was just perfect to stay home and enjoy it.The Cotswold is an attractive area. Each village is unique and the landscape around offers peaceful views on the meadows, exactly what we expected to see when we planned our trip here. You will find everything you need in this home, and especially the spirit of a place cherished by its owners.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE IN THE COTSWOLDS!

  • 5 out of 5
Pathways is the ideal cottage for exploring the Cotswolds!! It is quaint, wonderfully updated, convenient, sparkling clean, and the absolute ideal holiday rental. The owner was responsive, provided excellent directions and information. We used this cottage as a base for exploring Bath, Stonehenge, Gloucestershire, Oxford and others Cotswold villages.
The listing description was completely accurate and the property was exceptionally well kept. The village of Painswick had several fun, historical and good eateries; the walking paths were right out the front door; and the neighbors were wonderfully friendly. Loved the great internet service, the sun room for breakfast, and the adventure of trying an AGA stove.
We highly recommend this location as well worth the price.

Painswick, Gloucestershire is the 'Queen of the Cotswolds'. It is a 17th c village founded by wealthy wool merchants. Limestone chocolate boxes line the narrow streets that tumble up and down. Rolling hills mark the buccolic area of outstanding natural beauty. 90 minutes northwest of London Painswick is centrally located to tour England and Wales. Nearby are Stroud, Cirencester, Tetbury, Bath, Cheltenham, Oxford, Stow-on-the-Wold, and Stratford-upon-Avon. Painswick in Southern Cotswolds is very much like a tradtional English village. Painswick offers a general store, hairdresser, restaurants, pubs, boutiques, art gallery, deli, and more. The cottage is simply a very short stroll to all of this.Outside the churchyard is a bus station with easy access to Stroud, Cheltenham, Cirecester, and Gloucester. The train station in Stroud runs almost hourly to London. While this is a country village with numerous beautiful walking paths throughout the Painswick Valley, it is also very chic.

Notes:
This cottage has been lovingly renovated to a high degree of comfort and for those who love to cook. There is two burner AGA along with a convection/microwave. Having said this, with several pubs and restaurants, one hardly suffers from lack of great dining options in the village and all around the area. Local grocer and deli shop in the center of the village as well. The phone is for use with a phone card only. Comfy sitting room with gas fire makes viewing on the flat screen TV with surround sound a delight! IPOD connection within the surround sound system. Alternatively, there is a radio/CD player in the conservatory. FREE Wireless. There is a tranquil koi pond in the garden. The garden is private and walled. Yet, the cottage is right in the heart of the village. Quiet retreat for a country Cotswolds holiday. a multitude of lovely and varied walks are right here! Small tourist information center in library on Victoria Street in the town hall. Quintessential Cotswold cottage !
