Fantastic location, Carolyn very helpful. Cottage is small, especially downstairs, the 2 bedrooms are quite spacious, everything you need as cottage is very well equipped. Lovely private garden. Painswick has several really good places to eat, and it is a little bit off the tourist trail so very very peaceful.
