The Poolhouse

Set in the Cotswold village of Rodborough, this unique holiday retreat is a five minute walk from Rodborough Common, an area owned by the National Trust and consisting of nearly 300 acres of grassland.

The Poolhouse was built in the late 1960’s in glass, timber and Cotswold stone (reputed to have originated from Prinknash Abbey), It is southwest facing to ensure maximum sun through out the day.

The Poolhouse has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The interior has been sympathetically restored to reflect the period it was built, comprising of mid-century fittings, furniture and original posters.

The house consists of one double bedroom and a shower room. The open plan living space comprises of a kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining area, a large settee, a TV and DVD player, and a wood-burning stove. There is also a utility room with a washer/dryer.

Externally the house consists of a private swimming pool surrounded by cedar decking, several seated tables including what was part of an old stone cider press and also a large table near the shade of two ancient apple trees; a perfect place to eat outside or just admire the view. The house is set in grounds shared by the owner, but is discretely tucked away.

The pool is covered from mid October until mid-May.

Rodborough Common, set in open grassland on the Cotswold escarpment, commands impressive views of Stroud and the Severn Vale. In the summer cattle roam free, often wandering across roads. In the rambling 19th century golf course it is not uncommon to see cattle blocking golfers as they try to take shots. To admire the view visit The Lodge pub in the middle of the common, or have an ice cream at Winstones Cotswold Ice Cream factory.

In the village of Rodborough is the pub The Prince Albert; a couple of minutes walk from the Poolhouse, The Albert is a busy, characterful pub that has regular music nights with musicians of repute as well as comedy nights.

The house is a mile from the small bustling market town of Stroud with its independent shops, pubs and cafés. Once the industrial centre of the Cotswold’s and the wool industry, it is still very much a working town. There are regular arts and music festivals held here as well as a weekly award winning farmers market.

Close by is Tetbury known for its antique shops and 12 miles away is the spa town of Cheltenham, famous for its racecourse which hosts the annual Gold Cup as well as its many cultural festivals. Gloucester, with its medieval Cathedral is 10 miles away and the ancient market town of Cirencester is also 10 miles away

Nearby is the village of Slad, immortalized by the author Laurie Lee in his novel Cider with Rosie, and its pub The Woolpack as well as the villages of Bisley, Minchenhampton and Painswick, with its famous churchyard of 99 clipped yew trees. The surrounding Cotswolds’ also has a wealth of houses and gardens open to the public.

Walkers can access the famous Cotswold Way, 102 miles along the Cotswold escarpment, stretching from Chipping Campden to Bath with sweeping views and passing through picturesque villages in Cotswold stone.

Further afield the city of Bath and the city of Bristol are both a 45-minute drive away.

Transport links: Stroud train station is less than a mile away; there are hourly trains to London, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Paddington is 90 minutes away by train.

The house would be ideally suited to a couple. Due to the proximity of the pool to the house it is unsafe for younger children, and no pets.

Prices vary from £145 a night low season, to £165 high season.

Minimum stay 2 nights.

We had a wonderful stay at Reed's beautiful Poolhouse - I can attest that it's even worth staying in when the pool is covered over. The Poolhouse was very well located for a holiday in the Cotswolds. Reed was a very helpful host.

The Pool House is a unique AirBnB, with fantastic decor and everything you need for self catering. It was too cold for us to use the pool but in summer this place would be even better. It was bright and spacious, with views over Stroud. Reed was away so we were met by Tony. Unfo…
