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 a mile away, and other pubs nearby include The New Dawn on the A38 towards Gloucester, and The Red Lion, situated on the banks of the River Severn.

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

A well appointed property, everything you need for a break. Road a little noisy around the morning rush hour and care needed when exiting but all in all, a very pleasant experience.

Charming cottage, good location

  • 4 of 5

The house is a lovely little cottage on the road between Tewkesbury and Gloucester, which is a great location for day trips to the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Wye Valley and lots more. We spent every day out of the house in a different place and we loved it. The house itself is a tastefully furnished old coach house/stable done in a nice open plan style. It's small but surprisingly spacious and is the perfect size for a couple. The kitchen has got lots of utensils/pans etc and it's a pleasure to cook in. The shower is also excellent. There are a few minor issues like the sound of the road (quite loud), a too small tap on the kitchen sink and the fact it got quite hot at night (in August mind you) but hardly worth worrying about. Chris is a lovely host and was very welcoming. Thanks for a lovely stay!

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.

The cathedral city of Gloucester is famous for its docks and waterways museum. The spa town of Cheltenham is a great place to shop, and there are many bars and restaurants to choose from. The Cotswolds are within easy reach, and numerous golf courses are nearby too.

The Forest of Dean has cycle and walking trails, and nearby along the Wye Valley one can take a canoe trip. Further west there is fabulous walking to be enjoyed in the Brecon Beacons.
