Nestled within a beautiful valley, this period house has been home to the current vendors for over 40 years. There are stables and a paddock set within the 4.5 acres.

Nestled within this pretty valley, this natural stone detached cottage has views from every window and delightful grounds which include stabling and paddocks.

Thought to date from the 1600's, this period cottage has been loved and extended by the current owners to provide a well thought out and balanced family home. Approached into the conservatory, which makes the most of the views of the garden, this lovely room is spacious with stone flooring which follows through into the hallway and kitchen and is currently used as the dining room. The kitchen is a room which you want to spend time in; informal cupboards and a dining table down the centre frame the window seat which has been made from reclaimed walnut from a fallen tree on the grounds in the storm of 1987. Adjacent to the kitchen is a working utility room with an enviable pantry cupboard and plenty of storage, a downstairs cloakroom is situated off the utility.

The elegant sitting room has windows which frame the due south view over the valley, a working fireplace with more of the reclaimed walnut as a mantel shelf and oak parquet flooring. At the rear of the house is a large study, perfect for working from home or a versatile room which could be used as a snug or playroom with walnut bookshelves.

On the first floor the wide landing gives way to four double bedrooms, all with built in storage and a large family bathroom with bath and overhead shower. Bedrooms one and two face due south and benefit from the wonderful countryside views. There is plenty of potential to create en-suite bathrooms to two of the bedrooms.

The extensive mature gardens have numerous shrubs and trees, mature woodland and a patio just outside the conservatory makes a very pleasant spot for al fresco meals. Indeed, the garden has been beautifully landscaped to create “rooms” which can be enjoyed at different times of the day and year. An exceptional curved seating area and a summerhouse with heat and light providing views across the peaceful valley are two highlights. A large vegetable patch and greenhouses and cold frames are at one end of the land. A separate entrance to the two stables, hay store, tack room and two paddocks are approximately two acres each, one continuing down the lane and the other above and behind the cottage. In total the land is approximately 4.45 acres.

North Nibley has an acclaimed Primary School which successfully feeds secondary education in the catchment area including Grammar Schools. The village post office store is a thriving enterprise providing delivery for newspapers, specialist groceries and valuable banking services.

The area is served by two pubs, the Black Horse in the village itself and the New Inn further down the valley. Both are used extensively by walkers travelling the Cotswold Way. There are three easily accessible golf courses in the area and the village is also home to the annual Lister Tyndale Steam Rally, Nibley Nobblers Football Team and Nibley Cricket Team.
