A well presented Cotswold stone end of terrace town house in a great location for the shops, amenities and community of Nailsworth with three double bedrooms, good living spaces, parking and garden



1 Laurel Cottages is a handsome, well presented character property situated in a quiet road close to Nailsworth centre. This location is very much part of the thriving local community, with the shops and amenities of the town within easy reach and some great walks just up the road. The property was originally built between 1824 and 1854 from Cotswold stone using traditional methods and has been the home of the current owners for twenty happy years. The property has been improved in that time, with light, spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. A
17’ sitting room and 16’ kitchen/dining room are on the ground floor. Two double bedrooms and a shower room are above, on the first floor, with a lovely 17’ bedroom at the top of the house on the second floor. There is enough space here to create an en suite shower room or bathroom if a buyer choses to, subject to relevant permissions.


The interior complemented by a sunny garden and parking. There is a gravelled courtyard to the front of the property, with a gated entrance from the road. The garden is behind the house, and is a real sun trap, with steps leading up to a gravelled area with a shed situated in the corner. The parking is behind the garden, and this is accessed from Park Road.


“What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” – these are the opening lines of the world-famous poem Leisure by W H Davies, written in 1911 while he was living in a cottage at Watledge. Today, Nailsworth has changed a great deal since Davies’ time, but there is still much to stand and stare at in the bustling town centre, home to many independent businesses, selling everything from artisan bread, meat and fish to stationery, fashion and handmade jewellery. Nestling at the bottom of steep wooded hills, Nailsworth is now an attractive and vibrant shopping destination, with a large selection of interesting speciality shops and cafes, including the famous Williams Food Hall and Hobbs House Bakery. It is a quirky and friendly town, with a good selection of restaurants, as well as three supermarkets, a regular farmers’ market and a ‘green’ football club. Nailsworth is well positioned for both town and country. Climb the steep ‘W’ hill out of town and you find yourself on acres of stunning National Trust common land, home to a prestigious golf course. The town is also on the doorstep of beautiful Woodchester Park, with miles of woodland walks and secluded lakes. Yet just four miles away is Stroud, with more comprehensive shopping, educational and leisure facilities, connected by bus services. 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.
