The open-plan living diner is ideal for staying connected with the family and with the glass doors open, guests can fully immersed themselves in the 17 acres of land surrounding.

Cook delicious meals in the kitchen which is fitted with all the essentials needed to accommodate you during your stay and with lots of local pubs nearby, treat yourselves to evenings out feasting on wholesome British cuisine.

Seating for six means there is no excuse but to spend quality time together during dinner before laying open a board game over in the lounge, which overlooks onto the spectacular views of the countryside.

At either end of the cottage, the two large bedrooms are furnished with king-sized beds, a dressing table and wardrobe; the master bedroom with a spacious en-suite. Both the kids bedrooms are complete with single beds and the bright family bathroom is furnished to compliment the rest of the property.

The Hay Loft welcomes well-behaved dogs, and the stunning walks just a step outside your front door make way for endless adventures.

We're tackling climate change head on, by planting enough trees to create a net-zero carbon footprint for every booking made.

Hay Loft, Stroud

"We have just returned from a 4 night break staying at the Hay Loft. We had an amazing time, and the accommodation was beautiful. You can tell straight away a lot of thought and effort has gone into the little touches for guests, and the location of the property was amazing. Very private and tranquil, with a beautiful garden that the kids loved playing on. Thank you for making our first break in over 18 months so memorable."

"I needed a property on one level due to reduced mobility of one of out party. An email produced a variety of properties which were suitable. This took, literally, minutes.

First people to stay here, absolutely blown away!

"Absolutely superb accommodation, and exceptionally well equipped. Ken and Rose were fantastic hosts, nothing too much trouble. The location is ideal for the Cotswolds, with short walks from the Hay Loft to the local cafes in Chalford along an incredibly pretty canal, but also only 10 minutes from Stroud and Cirencester. We stayed during December, and it was beautiful even then (really cosy feeling with the exposed wood beams, even better than the pictures online!), but we can only imagine how amazing this place would be in Summer, with the private space and seating area out back getting the sun all day long... the sunsets there will be brilliant with a bbq! In all honesty, wish we could have stayed longer than a week!"
