Stable Cottage is a distinctive, reverse-living, Cotswold stone barn that started its life in 1825 as the stables to the nearby manor house. This semi-detached cottage has retained much of its rural Georgian character, including the original, exposed-timber A-frame in the open-plan living-dining-kitchen area. The cottage sleeps up to five guests across three bedrooms and is in a beautifully tranquil and rural spot in the Painswick Valley, away from the hustle and bustle of Cotswold tourism yet just a short drive from Painswick, Stroud, Cirencester and Cheltenham. Guests have a private garden and additional lawn, as well as use of a fabulous all-weather tennis court surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Felt really unwelcome.

En suite too small to be functional
Lack of shelving/storage space/hooks for clothes in bathrooms
Parking space mud covered
All kitchen cupboards full of crockery, cutlery, dishes pans etc so nowhere for food except small fridge (freezer in outhouse full of old food and hadn't been defrosted for a long time when we arrived). I counted 40 knives in the drawer!
The list goes on - great location and a nice building but it needs someone to take an interest in it.
Dogs allowed but really not dog friendly

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at Stable Cottage. We supply a 3D tour on our website and a floorplan with dimensions which show the size of the en suite. The owner will look into putting a hook onto the back of the door to help with storage and there is a stool provided for clothes in the main bathroom. We are afraid that March has been one of the wettest on record and the surface of the parking area is hardcore and we are sorry that you found it to be muddy. The cottage is pet friendly and it is stated on the website that there is an additional pet fee, we had not been informed on booking that you would be bringing a dog with you. The owner has also let us know that all calls were dealt with promptly and any issues reported were fixed as soon as possible including the issue with the freezer.

Relaxing

We were unable to contact the owner on arrival as couldn’t open the key lock but half an hour later other half got it open. Same happened on departure so just left key on side.
Property comfortable but being charged for logs was not ideal seeing they have a wood burner in the property.

Lovely cottage. Spacious main room; comfortable bedrooms; good bathrooms; beautiful area; and a fabulous private tennis court. Great bolt-hole! We loved it and plan to return.

The Stables at Freams Farm was the perfect location for relaxing, walking and exploring the Cotswolds. The accomodation has a living area, which is spacious and at the same time homely. This , together with the location, was the main reason for booking the Stables and it didn't disappoint. Situated away from the road it made for a peaceful and chilled stay. All our walks were straight from the front door to well marked footpaths. The Cotswolds Way is minutes from The Stables with several good route options. Sue and Peter are great hosts and easily contactable. Highly recommended



Wonderfully peaceful
