About the property

Open plan accommodation, galleried double bedroom. free Wi Fi

The Coach House is situated on the A38 halfway between Gloucester and Tewkesbury, and about 5 miles west of Cheltenham. It provides an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds, The Forest of Dean, or even the Wye Valley and beyond to the Welsh hills.

The barn has been very tastefully converted to provide an open plan living room/dining area and kitchen, with a galleried bedroom above. There is a shower room with basin and WC. It provides very comfortable accommodation for a couple, though downstairs there is a sofa bed if required.

The Leigh is an ancient village in the Severn Vale, and although The Coach House is on the main road, just on the opposite side of the road is a walk through the village - a most peaceful experience. The Swan is a pub/restaurant half a mile away, and other pubs nearby include The Red Lion, situated on the banks of the River Severn.

Lovely little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend and had the most wonderful time! The property has everything you will need; plenty of kitchen equipment, books/DVDs, TV/DVD player and a gorgeous living room for you to relax in.

Despite the proper as a whole not being very big, the interior felt incredibly spacious, as well as being really cosy in the evening. The shower is amazing - 10/10 for that!

It's really close to a multitude of places for days out - we chose a half hour drive to Slimbridge Wetlands Centre.

Couldn't be more pleased, would definitely recommend!

A very comfortable cottage (although the bed was not) and a good base for getting around. Please note that there is no pub or restaurant within half a mile as stated on the details. The nearest place was well over a mile and a bit too far to walk. Saying that we had a lovely week there and it is ideal if you like to get out and about.

Summer break

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Coach house in July 2011 for 6 days with my husband and had a lovely time. The cottage is cute and nicely decorated and surprisingly quite as close to an A road. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cutlery and utensils. The bathroom is great (only room without a photo so I was initially worried!). It is big with a great powerful shower and a spacious sink for my many toiletries!! The swinging seat in the living room area was very relaxing and a funky feature. TV/DVD player was great for a cosy evening in on the sofa. Some DVD's in the cottage or we also took some.

Gloucester and Cheltenham are close by with cinema, restaurants, shops (Gloucester has designer outlets and high street) supermarkets and places of interest. Many little villages all around and there are some great books in the cottage on local walks. We did a couple through some gorgeous little villages and had a fab time.

A lovely little cottage and a great holiday, definitely recommend.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I wanted a cottage for a few days away from London for New Years Eve.

We had a lovely time and thought the cottage was perfect, couldnt have been more pleased with it! It was lovely and warm and the layout was lovely.

Excellent location, we were able to drive into town to look around the shops, drive to the forest of dean and also to bicester village.

We had an amazing time and will definitely be recommending it to everyone we know for a weekend break!

Un accueil chaleureux du propriétaire

  • 4 of 5

Logement spacieux, bien équipé avec un hôte très réactif en cas de problème.

La cour permet de garer facilement deux véhicules et Chris n'a pas vu d'objections à l'accueil momentané d'amis de passage.

Je me permets de mettre un bémol à mon appréciation car il n'était pas précisé que le gite se trouve en bordure d'une route très passante et si le bruit des véhicules gênent alors c'est assez pénible.
