A semi detached cotswold cottage situated in an idyllic location on a bridle path that lies adjacent to the stream that feeds Ruskin Mill and the trout hatcheries


Occupying a truly unique location, this cotswold cottage is situated directly opposite the Nailsworth stream and water meadow on a quiet bridle path from which you can walk to either the town centre or the washpool at the bottom of Wormwood Hill in Horsley. The very large garden which is a particular feature of the property is now in need of some general tidying and pruning back but could provide plenty of space for both growing vegetables and keeping chickens or could be more formally landscaped if required. The cottage is arranged over three floors and comprises the following:- Sitting room with log burning stove, kitchen with range of fitted base and wall cupboards, utility room, rear lean to rear passage way, ground floor bathroom, two bedrooms and attic/hobbies room on the second floor.

The property is approached along a “no through road” which becomes a bridle path beyond the cottages and there is therefore no passing vehicular traffic. There is plenty of off road parking which could be increased if required by digging out a further area of garden. The cottages front onto the Bridle Path and have delightful views overlooking the Nailsworth stream and water meadow. The garden lies mainly to the rear of the cottage and although now in need of some general maintenance, provides a fabulous opportunity for a keen gardener. There is also a paved terrace to the side of the cottage from which to enjoy the lovely views.

The village of Horsley lies within approximately half a mile of Nailsworth and offers a good local community shop, well regarded primary school and a public house. The town of Nailsworth has
become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. Bus services connect with Stroud, some four miles away, where there is a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (4 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
