Location - Iron Mills is situated below Minchinhampton in the Avening Valley immediately east of Nailsworth. The valleys heavily wooded slopes form a verdant backdrop and are particularly colourful in the spring and autumn (there is approximately 20 acres of communal woodland for residents of the development to enjoy) and a former coaching inn, The Weighbridge just across the road, which is famous for its two-in-one pies! The popular market town of Nailsworth is only a mile away, with an excellent range of independent retailers, supermarket and free parking, while Stroud and Tetbury with major supermarkets are almost equidistant. Cheltenham is about 45 minutes by road and Bristol under the hour. The journey from London is straightforward down the M4 motorway to Junction 15 (Swindon), and from here all dual carriageway to Cirencester. From the latter station (Kemble) regular train services into London Paddington are scheduled from 75 minutes. Minchinhampton has three challenging 18-hole golf courses, there are numerous lovely walks in the vicinity and the country lanes are very inviting for cyclists.

Description - 3 Iron Mills would once have been occupied by mill workers employed on the site when it was a water powered Cloth Mill whose recorded origins go back to the 17th century. Listed Grade II and attached at one end to a row of equally attractive old buildings all now converted into homes, (part of this very select private development), 3 Iron Mills has a most romantic setting where the sound of running water forms a delightful backdrop. Beautifully presented, the cottage is equally attractive inside and out with a southerly aspect so attracts all the sun going. From a raised stone terrace, the front door leads to a lobby either side of which is the sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room. Both feature unusually high ceilings which enhance the feeling of space and the latter is a good size and includes a built-in pantry cupboard. Upstairs are two good bedrooms and a well appointed shower room with a walk-in shower enclosure and two wash hand basins. Outside, the cottage has a useful detached Cotswold stone studio and a pretty compact garden. It has dedicated parking spaces for two cars.
