The Country Stables holds a wonderful location, situated right in the heart of Painswick, a stunning Cotswold town. With beautiful views across the Slad Valley, to the east and plenty to explore in the town and beyond making the perfect setting for those in search of a countryside escape! Set between Stroud and Cheltenham, there is plenty of attractions in the surrounding area to keep the whole group entertained.
Built within the grounds of
Wilfred Manor, the Country Stables is a three bedroom self-contained property which has been newly renovated. With its own kitchen and dining facilities as well as a lovely lounge area with log burner, this is a cosy and charming property. Neighbouring the main Stables, are two further properties, the Green Retreat, a romantic bolthole for two, and the Barn & Spa, which sleeps four. The Country Stables is therefore an excellent option for families holidaying together who wish to retain an element of privacy from the rest of the group.
Outside, the Barn & Spa and Green Retreat share their own private garden area complete with a large hot tub and pergola.
For those looking to really relax, private dining with the in-house chef can be arranged and can cater to you and your family or friends. Whether you are looking for a seated three course menu, or a relaxed sofa night, we can cater your stay to suit your tastes and budget. Please enquire with our concierge team should you want any further information.

Catering @ The Country Stables
Please note that there will be an additional charge of £250 + VAT per day to hire a chef who can prepare up to two meals within that day. You can choose to simply hire the chef for one day of your stay or choose to have the chef service throughout the stay.
Once you have booked and selected the duration of days you would like to hire the chef for, the local property managers will contact you to enquire about your food and drinks requirements. The chef will then design a menu, tailored to your requirements and issue a per head quote for this. Please note that this charge is specifically for the food ingredients and drinks and so this will need to be paid for ON TOP of the above chef charge (of £250 + VAT per day). The property managers will send you an invoice for the catering which will need to be paid for prior to your arrival.
Please enquire with our concierge team should you require any further information regarding the above.
