About Newton Reservations

The owners, Sara and Lawrence and their daughter live in the USA but plan to retire back to their homeland some day. They know the area well and Sara was born and grew up only a few miles from the cottage so it is kind of a 'home from home'. Before buying this cottage they had walked past it many times and vowed to buy it one day.

Newton Reservations purchased this cottage in 2013

Very comfortable, good views and good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights over Christmas in order to be near family. The cottage was warm, welcoming and properly equipped. The bedding is of good quality; no ancient pillows ! The owners have sensibly gone for reasonable quality across the board which means that everything works well.

There are many things to do in and around the area. The cottage is situated just below Minchinhampton common and above the diverse and interesting Nailsworth Valley. The area has plentiful walks with superb views and some of the best villages in the country. There is easy access by road or rail to major destinations such as Bath and Cirencester with their wealth of Roman history, Gloucester with its ancient historic docks now fully redeveloped, Oxford with its colleges and spires and Stratord on Avon for the Shakespeare experience.

Information on how to visit these places will be found at the cottage.



The Cotswold Wildlife Park at Burford is well worth a visit.

The village of Burford itself has galleries and antique shops as well as attractive tea rooms set along the centuries old high street.

If you are in this area then visit Bourton-on-the-Water for the famous model village and Motoring Museum.

Westonbirt Arboretum offers a national collection of rare trees and wonderful walks (dogs allowed in many areas of the park).

Other destinations for wildlife would include Bibury Trout Farm and The Butts Farm at Cirencester has rare livestock breeds and a very good farm shop. Prinknash Abbey near Painswick has a wonderful collection of birds including peacocks and parrots as well as various types of deer that can be hand fed.

Family Activities:


Here are some suggestion of what can be found either locally or within an hour’s drive.

Steam Railways. The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway runs along a part of the former Great Western Railway's mainline from Birmingham to Cheltenham, via Stratford-upon-Avon. The line commands wonderful views of the sleepy hamlets and villages as it runs though the beautiful Cotswold countryside. An alternative is the Dean Forest Railway just across the estuary – about 40 minutes drive

Pubs and Restaurants:


There are many quality pubs to be found in the are. Just a few for you to consider are:-

The Black Horse Inn, Amberley. This friendly pub is a five minute walk from the Cottage and offers local beers and home cooked, locally sourced food with the added bonus of fantastic views across the valley from the elevated position high above the Nailsworth valley.

The Amberley Inn. A slightly longer walk (10 mins) from the cottage, the Amberley Inn offers good food, wines and beer as well as morning coffees and teas.

The Weighbridge. In Longfords, Minchihampton is an 'old fashioned' pub in its style and ambience, with roaring log fires to welcome you. Muddy boots, dogs and children are all welcome. It is renowned in the area for its wonderful 2in1 pies.

The Ragged Cot. The Ragged Cot is a beautiful boutique country inn with a history spanning over three hundred years.

The Bear at Rodborough. With their open log fires and comfortable furniture, the Bear Bar and Common Room are perfect for relaxing with the newspaper, taking afternoon tea or enjoying your after-dinner coffee and liqueurs.

Self Catering:


The area is well served by a number of supermarkets within a few miles. Stroud has a Tesco, Sainsburys and Waitrose and Morrisons can be found in nearby Nailsworth.

For basic conveniences, there is a very small village shop and sub-Post Office in Amberley.
