Welcome to Rose Tree Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.
Rose Tree Cottage is a grade II listed, detached Cotswold stone cottage, sitting in its own gardens on a hill just outside the market town of Stroud, in the heart of the beautiful "Five Valleys" region of the Cotswolds. Stroud is well known for its bohemian vibe and eclectic mix of shops, with Jasper Conran describing the weekly Farmers' Market held in the town as "the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds". The Five Valleys converge on Stroud and contain some of the most beautiful countryside Britain has to offer. Rose Tree Cottage is also well placed for exploring further afield, with the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham both within easy reach.

The cottage has been lovingly renovated and extended by its owners, with traditional features such as oak beams and exposed Cotswold stone complemented by modern facilities, including two beautiful new bathrooms, a well presented kitchen and a conservatory, which allows the lovely back garden to be enjoyed whatever the weather.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of five people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There are lovely, peaceful front and back gardens, and the cottage has plenty of off-street parking, as well as secure storage space for bikes. Rose Tree Cottage is perfect for friends, couples or a family seeking peaceful seclusion in the Cotswolds, whilst being close to all the amenities of Stroud.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The maximum occupancy of the property is five guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than five guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old, Grade II listed property, which has a steep and narrow staircase, with a turn at the top and a low ceiling height near the bottom, which could cause difficulty for guests with restricted mobility or carrying a baby. The bedrooms and main living areas are on the first floor and, in the event of an emergency, the property can be exited directly from the first floor into the back garden.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
