A delightful Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Box


Box is a delightful Cotswold village situated on the edge of Minchinhampton and close to the centres of Nailsworth, Stroud and Cirencester. The village itself dates back to the 13th Century but it was only in the late 1700's when it grew significantly as a result of the wool trade. Today there are approximately 150 houses in the village and a population of around 400.
A short walk away is Minchinhampton Common, National Trust owned and with a golf course. Golf is also played at Minchinhampton Golf Club, gliding takes place at Aston Down, whilst polo is played at Cirencester Park. Sailing and windsurfing are available at the Cotswold Water Park. As one would expect, there are delightful walks throughout the area.
There are many private and state schools in the locality including a primary school in Minchinhampton, Beaudesert Park Preparatory School (within walking distance), Stroud High School, Wycliffe at Stonehouse and Westonbirt School for Girls.


Beehive Cottage is an absolutely charming and beautifully appointed cottage located in the heart of the ever-popular village of Box. Constructed in the vernacular style of Cotswold stone under a Cotswold stone tile roof with stone mullioned windows to the front, the property is extremely pretty and is believed to be the second oldest in the village, dating back to the mid 18th Century. The cottage has been extended and renovated to an exceptionally high standard, retaining a wonderfully warm atmosphere and plenty of charm and character.

The sitting room is a delightful, light room with pretty views over the front garden, exposed timber beams and a large fireplace with Jotul wood-burning stove. The abundance of light in the kitchen/dining room is exceptional, due mainly to the full length roof windows and galleried landing above allowing plenty of natural light to flood in. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units and integrated appliances and leads on to the dining area which is a super space, perfect for entertaining. Downstairs there is also a useful study, again with pretty views over the front garden.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A staircase leads up to the second floor where there is a generous double bedrooms, currently used as an entertainment room and there is an en suite bathroom.

To the rear of the property is the professionally landscaped garden, bordered by Cotswold stone walls and set over various different levels allowing a good degree of privacy and superb views of the village and its surroundings. There are various different seating areas, from where one can enjoy the garden and views and they are perfect for outside dining. At the top of the garden are two garden sheds and to the front of the property there is also an allocated parking space.
