The Yew Tree
The Yew Tree Holiday Cottage is surrounded by National Trust common land and has far reaching views across valleys to Stroud. The area is extremely interesting with pre-historic standing stones; iron age settlements - bulwarks; evidence of Roman settlements - the Orpheus Pavement being the most famous - Huegenot rabbit warrens; and many more.
The regeneration of the Cotswold Canals is in its first stages - the canal running along the valley due north of the holiday cottage within 300m. Brimscombe Port was the biggest inland port in its heyday and is a prime site for restoration within the next couple of years.
The accommodation comprises - 1 twin bedded room, shower room, conservatory, lounge (with a sofa which converts into a double bed), dining area and full working kitchen. A TV in the bedroom and a TV & video player in the lounge plus radios and cassette player add to the entertainment - should the weather be inclement, although there is an excellent free museum in Stroud for those such days! Also a bowling centre and cinema.
The cottage is centrally heated but also provided are some supplementary heaters. It is open all year round and price ranges from £145 to £205 a week. There may be an additional cost for heating during winter months when the rent is reduced. We have a no smoking and no pets policy and bedding is hypoallergenic.
The guests have use of a small patio, which overlooks the valleys to Stroud and the owner's garden. Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Anne are often seen shopping locally as they live within the immediate area.
Stroud is central to various trips out - such as Bath (3/4 hour); Gloucester & Cheltenham (1/2 hour); Cirencester (20 minutes); Midlands and Wales.
