Washbrook Cottage is a stunning Cotswold Stone Cottage nestled in a beautiful valley between the village of Edge and the picturesque Cotswold town of Painswick. It is situated in the grounds of Washbrook Farm a Grade II listed former Water Mill dating from the 17th Century.

Washbrook Cottage is newly renovated to a high standard and every care has been taken to make your stay a home away from home. There are three bedrooms, one double and two twin rooms (option to make one of the twin rooms into a second double if needed). Two bedrooms are on the ground floor so perfect for those with elderly relatives who may not be able to cope with stairs. There are two bathrooms, one located downstairs with a full bath and separate shower and the other is ensuite to the main bedroom upstairs and has a beautiful roll top bath. Fully equipped kitchen...

'Once you are settled in we are happy to have as much interaction as you would like. Washbrook is a lovely, peaceful place to be and once they get their bearings, we tend not to see much of our guests as they are out and about, exploring the Cotswolds'

Washbrook cottage was for me the perfect place to escape the hustle, bustle and daily grind of life, a week here left me feeling refreshed and re-energised. Nestled in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, wild deer grazing in the garden (if your up early)ponys at the end of the garden and the sound of birdsong and the stream that runs through...

We had a very pleasant long weekend at Washbrook Cottage which is situated in Painswick, a very pretty area of the Cotswolds. You can walk into Painswick along the Cotswold Way - the village has a couple of pubs and a nice café. It is a good base to explore the towns and villages of the Cotswolds. The cottage itself...

We absolutely loved the peaceful and beautiful setting for this wonderful cottage. The cottage has everything you need and then some! Loads of character and lovely furnishings. We loved using an Aga for the first time. It made the scrambled eggs we cooked fresh from the hens on the farm taste even better! Nicki had all kinds of information available...

About the neighbourhood
Washbrook is approached down a county lane and is off the beaten path, whilst also being just a short walk into Painswick - 'The Queen of the Cotswolds', which has a number of wonderful pubs, restaurants and cafes.

The Cotswolds, a very special, very wonderful place. Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone; take in splendid, lively market towns; visit some of the country’s greatest palaces, castles and country houses; marvel at the natural world in acclaimed reserves and at some of the most famous arboretas in Britain; walk through breath-taking landscapes along historic trails; or make a splash in our own lake-land area with its own inland beach.
Getting around
A car is definitely recommended to make the most of the whole area but we have had guests that arrive by train just to walk the labyrinth of public footpaths and explore the hills and woodlands of the area. If that is your plan make sure to bring some stout walking boots!

Nik & Nicki are keen cyclists and can provide you with plenty of details on routes to take, if you plan on bringing your bikes.

Railway: Stroud: 8.0 km
Washbrook Cottage, at Washbrook Farm, Edge Lane, Edge, Gloucestershire, GL6 6NF.
The farm is right between Painswick and Edge in the Washbrook Valley.

If you are approaching via Edge on the A4173 turn off onto Edge Lane (or Cud Lane which leads to Edge Lane). Follow Edge Lane through the village and continue down the hill until you see a row of cottages on the left hand side. After the cottages you will head downhill again and the lane becomes quite dark due to tree cover and the high-sided banks. As the road opens up slightly the turn to Washbrook is on the right. If you start going uphill you have gone to far!! After making the turn follow the drive for about a 1/4 of a mile and the farm and Cottage are straight ahead of you.

If you are approaching from Painswick on the A46 make the...
