Location - Virginia Cottage is situated at the north end of Amberley Parish, arguably one of the most desirable locations in which to live around Stroud. The cottage, which is private and tucked away, has a pleasant outlook across a pony paddock, which is opposite. Lovely views abound, the common is all around yet London is normally under 2 hours by road or from 95 minutes by train from nearby Stroud. At its heart Amberley has a general store, two public houses, a popular village school and a well attended church. Accordingly it is a thriving and pro-active community known to be very friendly. Just down the hill is Nailsworth, a small market town with excellent shopping (Williams Kitchen and Hobbs Bakery in particular), while Stroud has a large Waitrose and two other major supermarkets. There is much to see and do in the area and Cirencester, Tetbury, Bristol or Cheltenham are within easy reach. For golfers there are three challenging courses at nearby Minchinhampton. The adjacent common with its ever changing scenery is marvellous for walks, there are gardens to visit, numerous equestrian events including the trials at Badminton and Gatcombe, and even an award winning Spa nearby at Calcot Manor.
Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 5 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 30 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 17 miles, Stroud Railway Station - 3.5 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 17 miles, Bristol Temple Meads - 33.5 miles. Distances are approximate.
Description - Virginia Cottage is everything that a traditional Cotswold cottage should be and more. Bursting with character, it is quite beautifully presented throughout. Several hundred years old, its mellow stone walls and stone tiled roof reflect its age but inside a particularly striking feature is how light the cottage feels as it faces almost due south and the windows on this side are deeper than normal. The front door opens into a lobby on one side of which is the well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and door to the back garden. On the other the sitting room with a wood burner inset in its fireplace for winter evenings with the dining room and the utility/cloakroom beyond, both also with doors to the garden. Upstairs, are three to four bedrooms, the smallest of which is currently used as a study, a bathroom and a separate shower room. Outside, Virginia Cottage's garden is equally special. Very well stocked, a typically clever design feature of the property is a covered area on the west side opposite a sunken patio for dining outside, while across the rear of the cottage is a broad terrace. Virginia Cottage has private parking for one car, garden shed and a really useful outhouse adjacent to the kitchen, which also houses the boiler.
