Maltings is a 3 storey, Cotswold stone cottage located in a quiet lane yet within a few minutes flat walk of pubs, restaurants and independent shops. Two private parking spaces, two bathrooms, comfortable, hypoallergenic mattresses on all beds for a sound sleep, a pretty courtyard garden and stylish furnishings complete the picture. The Nailsworth stream meanders its way beyond the garden and can be heard babbling from the master bedroom.


The spacious top floor with king sized bed and ensuite shower room is dual aspect with expansive views over the Nailsworth Valley to the rear and the ancient Brewery Lane to the front. There is little traffic down this tiny lane but horses are led daily to the fields beyond.

The first floor has a twin bedroom overlooking the courtyard garden at the rear and a single room facing Brewery Lane together with the modern family bathroom. Windows on this floor have safety catches for the peace of mind of parents who are enjoying the master room on the top floor.

The ground floor entrance vestibule leads to the hall, cloakroom, fully fitted and equipped kitchen with built in Neff appliances and the lovely lounge / diner opening onto a pretty courtyard garden and stream beyond. The property offers free wifi, two smart televisions (one in the master bedroom and a Blu Ray DVD player in the lounge. There are also plenty of guides and maps to the local area as it is a mecca for walkers. It is comfortably furnished with seating and dining space for 5.

The courtyard garden has seating for 5 plus a BBQ. Guests can enjoy the evening sun with a glass of wine and the sound of the brook beyond the fence.

It is also within easy reach of Westonbirt Arboretum, Painswick Roccoco Gardens and the Cheltenham races. Gatcombe Park (Princess Anne's residence) is a short distance away for eventing and there is excellent golfing at Minchinhampton golf courses. The nearby Woodchester Mansion is an unfinished gothic residence of great interest set in extensive parklands and well worth a visit.

About Janet

We are the owners Kevin and Janet who bought the property in 2003 intending to retire to Nailsworth. Over the years we have rented it out and used it ourselves for holidays but are now retired and settled near to London and family so decided to turn it into a holiday let in March 2013. We love to visit whenever we can to enjoy the shops and restaurants in this wonderful little town of Nailsworth and the interesting local villages.

We love the lively, friendly ambiance of Nailsworth and have enjoyed refurbishing it and turning it into a comfortable holiday home for ourselves and others. Several guests have commented on the comfort of the beds and how well they sleep in the quiet location. I know that we do!

The property has previously been let through an agent and has attracted many excellent reviews both on Tripadvisor and other websites. Unfortunately these are not available to us on the current site but can be viewed on Tripadvisor.com.

Janet purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Janet chose Nailsworth

It is well positioned for touring the pretty villages and countryside but equally ideal if you want to park up, chill out and enjoy the local pubs, restaurants and walks or just relax in the garden. Nailsworth is a very social community with lots going on around the town and further afield. There is something for everyone with or without a car! We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

Nailsworth is nestled in one of the five valleys with many other properties situated on the hillsides. Maltings is in an enviable position in the heart of the conservation area of Nailsworth offering easy walking access to all amenities. Many properties in the area would require holidaymakers to have the use of a car for all but the keenest walkers. Car parking space is at a premium in Cotswold properties and we have two of them!

This property has all the charm of a traditional cotswold cottage but with modern amenities in clouding a ground floor cloakroom, family bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom.

Nailsworth has a unique range of independent and quirky shops - ideal for browsing with the cottage just a short, flat walk to the nearest amenities. We are about half an hour from the City of Bath and love the Thermae Spa with different spa experiences on each of the 3 floors including the open air rooftop spa overlooking town and countryside.

Another must for us is the famed Shambles Market in Stroud every Saturday morning - lots of fresh local produce and much more.

If it is a fine evening we love going to Coaley Peak, about 3 miles away to watch the sun setting over the Severn Estuary and The Black Mountains of Wales.

Maltings is also within easy reach of Cheltenham and Gatcombe Park for equestrian events.

For horticulturalists Painswick Roccoco gardens are a unique experience and well worth a visit together with The National Arboretum at Westonbirt.

There are extensive walking trails around Nailsworth and across Minchinhampton Common with magnificent views across the 5 valleys.

You are spoilt for choice with local restaurants, pubs and cafes together with regular festivals and events in the locality.
