Introduction As you approach Walkley Wood Cottage through the winding lanes of Nailsworth, you will notice how the town and surrounding properties are almost hidden by the secluded woodland valley to the east of Stroud. Proudly perched on the side of sleepy Shortwood Road is Walkley Wood Cottage, a distinguished 19th century property with rustic golden stone that immediately casts a warm and welcoming aura. Ideally situated, this cottage is the perfect base for exploring the tranquillity of the surrounding Stroud Valleys and the wider Cotswolds, while guests are also in easy walking distance of the cheerfully eclectic town of Nailsworth. If you're looking for somewhere to totally relax and unwind, then Walkley Wood is the perfect Cotswold home for you.

Proudly perched on the side of sleepy Shortwood Road is Walkley Wood Cottage, a distinguished 19th century property with rustic golden stone that immediately casts a warm and welcoming aura. Ideally situated, this cottage is the perfect base for exploring the tranquillity of the surrounding Stroud Valleys and the wider Cotswolds, while guests are also in easy walking distance of the cheerfully eclectic town of Nailsworth. If you're looking for somewhere to totally relax and unwind, then Walkley Wood is the perfect Cotswold home for you. As you approach the cottage through the cast iron gate and down the stone steps, you will notice a small outdoor table and chairs set down from the lane behind the dry-stone wall. Guests are welcome to sit outside and enjoy the warmth of the summer months in this compact but delightful sun trap. You may find yourself admiring the beautiful architecture and delicate Georgian windows, this cottage was, after all, built in 1852. Although the exact history of the cottage remains largely a mystery, it has been suggested that the building may have been used as a pub many years ago, which could explain the origins of the kitchen skylight. Either way, it's nice to consider that many happy memories have been created within these historic walls! Inside, Walkley Wood really is the perfect holiday home. Devoid of fussiness and frill, Karen has struck the perfect balance between homely-cosy comfort and refreshing simplicity. Each floor is brought to life by a sprinkling of quirky vintage features, while guests can simultaneously enjoy a bright and Scandinavian-inspired minimalist feel. The living room is the real heart of the property. A log-burning stove immediately creates a wonderful cosy atmosphere, with soft blankets and cushions scattered over furniture to help guests make themselves feel at home. Just a short walk away is the artistic town of Nailsworth, a gem in the heart of the Cotswold valleys. A largely overlooked town, Nailsworth has a fantastic and unspoiled selection of boutiques, bars, pubs and cafes, and really does offer some of the best food for miles around. There's also often live music events, so it's always worth keeping an eye on what's going on!

Turn immediately right to enter the… Living Room The living room is the heart of this lovely little cottage. Set on the ground floor, it offers a warm and cosy living space and is the perfect place to kick back and relax after a long day exploring the Cotswolds. Decorated in quality Farrow & Ball paint throughout the cottage, the living room is stylishly understated, with quirky pieces of statement vintage furniture. Relax on the dark green leather sofa under the atmospheric lighting of the many lamps that line the room, and most eye-catchingly of all the gorgeous French brass candle-style wall lamps. If you fancy curling up and watching a film on the TV, then you'll be spoilt for choice by the large selection of DVDs you'll find on the in-built shelves, as well as a great selection of books. Lift the lid of the wooden chest/coffee table and you'll find a superb selection of board games and puzzles – perfect for a rainy day! Of course, the real centre piece of the sitting room is the log burning stove, a real treat for holidaymakers looking for an authentic country-cottage experience. Bask in the warmth of the flickering flames while snuggled under the lovely soft blankets and cushions, kindly provided by Karen to help ensure that you have a homely and comfortable stay! Go down the wooden-topped stairs at the far end of the lounge to the… Kitchen SituMore
