A delightful light-filled sitting/dining room leads off the boot room with a magnificent inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove inset, creating a lovely focal point. There is ample space for a large dining table and a main access door opens to the garden, making this a lovely space for lazy summer days or for entertaining friends. The dual aspect kitchen affords wonderful valley views to Brimscombe and Burleigh. Fitted with wooden shaker-style units, a vaulted ceiling creates a wonderful sense of space. A useful utility room leads off the sitting room with plumbing for washing machine and fitted sink. Spiral stairs lead to a first floor landing area and large double bedroom with lovely valley views. There is also a second bedroom at this level plus a large storage cupboard on the landing and a good sized family bathroom. The real piece de resistance of this cottage however is the magnificent main bedroom hidden away on the top floor.

Swellshill is a hidden gem of a location. Nestled in the Stroud valley with lovely views in all directions, only the well-informed would know this tucked away little lane near the village of Brimscombe, even exists. Within walking distance of Rodborough, Minchinhampton and Bownham Commons, Swellshill is surrounded by fabulous countryside with wonderful walks in all directions and the popular Winstones ice cream factory and shop within a ten minute walk. Nearby Minchinhampton has a good range of amenities with a popular pub, post office and good range of shops and Brimscombe itself is within walking distance and plays host to the Ship Inn and popular Stroud Brewery. Brimscombe Port is also in the early stages of re-development and promises an exciting array of facilities and housing with the opening up of the canal. Stroud is the nearest town and has several major supermarkets, as well as a cinema, sports facilities and mainline station. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools with several sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
The area is well connected for transport links with trains into London Paddington from Stroud Station, circa 90 mins and the M5 and M4 both easily accessible.
From our Minchinhampton office head along the High Steet past the market square to the top of Butt Street. Turn left onto the Cirencester Road passing out across Minchinhampton Common in the direction of Stroud. After approximately 2 miles, take the right hand turn towards Winstones Ice Cream, shortly after The Bear of Rodborough. Continue along the lane and take the second left hand fork. Head down the hill and the property will be found at the second cross roads with Swellshill, on the right hand side.
