AS FROM OCTOBER 2018, A SMALL LUXURY DEVELOPMENT OF 5 EXECUTIVE TERRACED HOUSES ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED IN A NEIGHBOURING SITE. THIS WILL CAUSE SOME DISTURBANCE AND EXTRA ROAD USAGE DURING PERMITTED WORKING HOURS. THIS CONSTRUCTION IS EXPECTED TO LAST FOR ABOUT A YEAR. THE DEVELOPER HAS ASSURED US THAT THE COMFORT OF GUESTS WILL BE IN CONSTANT CONSIDERATION. WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE IT MAY CAUSE GUESTS. Bakers Cottage is at the end of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages, on a narrow lane in the heart of the beautiful village of Minchinhampton. The village is located away from major roads and is surrounded by the stunning Cotswolds countryside, including Minchinhampton Common, where cows graze freely in summer, and Princess Anne's Gatcombe Estate, home of the famous horse trials. The village is also well placed for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as the famous spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham. The cottage has been beautifully furnished and decorated by its owner, to create a contemporary yet cosy feel, whilst maintaining its traditional character features, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, stone mullion windows, oak beams and a wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen. The cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with one bathroom, and benefits from an enclosed back garden. Free on street parking is readily available. Bakers Cottage is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a small family, looking for a peaceful getaway in a beautiful area. House Rules Security deposits Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions). Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property, is four guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than four guests at the property. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted. Bed sizes and configurations Master bedroom: King size bed Bedroom 2: Double bed Bathrooms Family bathroom: Bath with overhead shower, toilet and wash basin Heating, fuel and logs The property has a gas central heating system. Electricity and gas are included in the rental price. An initial supply of logs is provided for the wood burning stove and further supplies can be purchased locally. Services provided The property has free wireless internet access and a Freeview TV with DVD player. There is no telephone at the property. Mobile phone reception is variable, however, it is usually possible to get a signal inside the property. Parking Free on-street parking is readily available close to the property. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen) and a high chair are provided. The garden is fully enclosed, however young children need to be supervised as there are steep steps and a drop from the upper level to the lower courtyard level. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. Accessibility, health and safety This is an old, Grade II listed property and has many character features, including a low beam at the top of the stairs into the master bedroom, and multiple floors, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.More

About the neighbourhood
Minchinhampton is a very attractive, thriving hilltop town, situated on a tongue of high land between the Golden Valley and the Nailsworth Valley, 1.5 miles north east of Nailsworth. The town also sits on the eastern fringes of Minchinhampton Common, high above the valleys that were once prosperous with the production of cloth.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
