Cockshoot House is special. At peace with nature with no intrusive noise from roads or railways, it occupies an elevated position on the south side of the Painswick Valley, enjoying timeless panoramic views. Spread out below are a network of little green fields dotted by period properties which merge seamlessly into the landscape, views that have a timeless quality. The origins of Cockshoot are unknown, but the cottage has been extended and there would be potential to do so again (subject to planning), to take maximum advantage of its setting. At its heart, the kitchen morphs into the conservatory which doubles as a breakfast room, from which to sit and fully appreciate the surroundings. Double doors lead from here onto an extensive decked area for alfresco dining. There are 3 other reception rooms and on the first floor 3 bedrooms, a bath/shower room and a box room. The house is well presented. Outside the garden is very special and complements the property. Professionally laid out with gravel paths through well established borders and is dotted with seating areas. Cocksfoot House has a double garage and parking.
It would be difficult to rival Cockshoot House's location, for views, peaceful surroundings and accessability. At the head of a 'no through' track, Cocksfoot House is on the edge of a small hamlet of the same name, adjacent to a magnificent expanse of mature beech woods (National Trust). Nearby Painswick, on the opposite side of the valley, is one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds with good facilities, which include an award winning Hotel and restaurant (The Painswick) and a challenging 18 hole golf course. Cheltenham is immediately to the north with excellent shopping, restaurants, theatre and literature, music and science Festivals, while Stroud to the south, has three mayor supermarkets and a main line station - (London Paddington from 95 minutes). Alternatively, London is normally under 2 hours by road (M4 or M40 motorways) and there is easy access to the M5 motorway. The lovely countryside around Cockshoot House simply invites being explored. There is a network of public footpaths, including direct access into the adjacent woods from Cocksfoot House, quiet county lanes for cyclists and opportunities to ride through keeping a horse at livery.
The property is most easily located by leaving Stroud on the Slad Road - B4070. Pass through the village of Slad until you reach the Bulls Cross junction turning left here as signposted to Sheepscombe. Continue along the side of the valley for 0.75 of a mile and then take a right hand fork ( prominent white chevrons on the road mark the junction). After 150 yards fork right again, onto an unmade track that leads up to Cocksfoot House.
