The Outhouse is a beautifully appointed, self-contained out-building. It includes a large bedroom, high quality bathroom with bath and shower, large living area/lounge with integral fully-equipped kitchen and parking for 2 cars or more. There is an outside sitting area to relax and enjoy the views both over to Cheltenham, as well as up towards the woods of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Chosen Hill nature reserve. It’s an ideal alternative to a hotel.
Cottage in Churchdown, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England - Rural Location Within 10-15 Mins Drive Of Central Gloucester & Cheltenham
- Calendar last updated:
- 20 Jan 2019
We are a family of 4 with 2 young children (as well as a spaniel called Roxy, chickens, bantams, 2 goats and 2 sheep!). The opportunity to rent out accommodation became increasingly apparent as "The Outhouse" was in limited use other than by family on visits. We took about the task of upgrading it to be as special as possible. The infrastructure, both internally and externally, was almost perfect already - we just needed to invest in furnishings, which we haven't held back on. Given a chance we chill out in there when we can. We book it out for ourselves too!
Sarah purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Sarah chose Gloucester
The setting - it's amazing. We spent a long time looking for the right place for our family. The opportunity to rent out our "Outhouse" to business people and holiday makers was an added bonus. We've taken this opportunity very seriously and have focused on attention to detail. It's been available from the beginning of 2015 but we spent several months in 2014 getting it ready. For example, the wifi has been professionally installed as we felt the signal from the main house was too weak. The brand new TV lacked on the sound quality so we bought a special unit to make it sound far better. We could go on...
What makes this Cottage unique
It's very close to both Gloucester and Cheltenham but in a rural setting. The tree-lined drive - as you approach it - puts you in the right frame of mind after either a social or business trip. Amazing wildlife (green woodpeckers for example) is abundant. It's the perfect place to relax with many rural attractions, but close to city life.

Peaceful, away from it all retreat
Cosy, comfortable accommodation with very friendly hosts. Will definitely return
Thanks for your lovely review - look forward to seeing you again!
Beautiful property and great host!
We had a lovely weekend! The property is a clean and beautifully decorated, cosy house which was exactly what we were looking for. The surrounding location is also lovely. Our host Sarah was really accommodating and provided everything we could have needed. Couldn’t recommend a stay here highly enough!
Lovely to have you stay - glad you enjoyed your weekend!
A Lovely Spot with Wonderful Hosts
The cottage is spotlessly clean and has all amenities in proper working order. The best part of the stay though was the warm welcome from our hosts who were super friendly and so very helpful. For us the addition of a greeting from "Roxy" (a gentle cocker spaniel) was the icing on the cake. Thank you for such an excellent stay.
Roxy is missing you both!
Thanks for your kind review :-)
Lovely place to stay
Andy and Sarah were so welcoming and The Outhouse was the perfect vacation place. It's very conveniently located for sightseeing and is in a beautiful rural location. My animal-crazy friend was happy to meet the goats and the chickens! I would enthusiastically recommend staying here.
Ah thanks for your kind review! Great to have you both staying here :-)
Great location, well appointed holiday unit.
Sarah’s unit was the perfect location for our travels. The unit is beautifully appointed, spacious and well equipped. Washing machine’s drying feature doesn’t work but Sarah graciously dried our clothes in her dryer. Unit was very clean and well presented, shops a short drive away for supplies. We are very happy we chose this home for a visit and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in this location.
