Pen Y Bryn is a most attractive example of a former 19th Century Weavers Cottage, carefully and sympathetically restored into the welcoming family home it is today. At its heart is a really lovely 'farmhouse style' kitchen/dining room with a 4 oven Aga, a great room in which to congregate and enjoy meals together. The flagstone kitchen floor is fitted with under floor heating and the kitchen units have been hand-made by locally renowned craftsmen, Stroud Furniture Makers. The kitchen opens into a double depth sitting room with exposed beams and wood burning stove. A lovely bright space for entertaining, it has a stable doors at the far end opening onto a sun deck fitted with up-lights. An original Elm staircase leads to the first floor and three bedrooms, each with their own character and the family bathroom. The master bedroom with original beams, is on the top floor with a shower room off. The whole house is very well presented in neutral Farrow and Ball colours. Outside there is a raised terrace with wonderful uninterrupted views of the Slad valley and a pizza oven at the head of the garden. The garden lies to the front and side of the house and is south facing and gently sloping. The detached double garage at its foot contains an electric rapid charging point and there is space to park in front of the garage.

Pen Y Bryn, as its Welsh name implies, enjoys an exceptional elevated position on Steanbridge Lane in Slad. Arguably one of the more favoured locations within the village away from the road that passes through it and leading down into the valley where it ultimately terminates. The Slad Valley, famous the world over due to its association with the poet and writer, Laurie Lee, is still one of the most beautiful and picturesque of all the valleys converging on Stroud, a town with strong artistic connections. Proud to be different and recently voted to be one of the best places to live in England, Stroud is a 'living' town, quirky and bohemian, noted especially for its Saturday Farmers Market. There is also a very practical side to Stroud, four major supermarkets including a large Waitrose, its excellent grammar schools, multiplex cinema and mainline train station - London Paddington from 90 minutes. Slad itself is a friendly and inclusive community with much going on, largely centred around its famous pub, The Woolpack, serving excellent food. There are lovely walks in the vicinity and it is also great cycling country, plus there are also a number of excellent golf courses in the vicinity.
