Holiday Rental House
Situated in a quiet and secluded spot, yet close to many amenities, October Cottage can be found in the very pretty Parish of Chalford which lies four miles south east of Stroud on the north side of the River Frome. Situated on the side of Chalford Hill, the cottage is approached via a steep narrow lane. In this part of Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds are cut by deep gorge-like valleys opening out westward into the Severn plain. The village has a store where you can purchase fresh produce, the Lavender Bake House coffee shop, a Tesco Express and a fish and chip shop. There are many excellent pubs and restaurants in the area. The award winning Farmers Market at Stroud is on Saturdays. This holiday cottage at a glance Sleeps three guests. Two bedrooms. One ground floor shower room.
