The small village of Horsley is very popular and has a thriving community spirit. Amenities include a primary school, village hall, playing field with play ground and pavilion/community shop, church and pub. The village hall and school combine to offer a playgroup. Countryside walks are available right on the doorstep.
Within a mile is Nailsworth, a small but busy market town. The town is a hive of industry and is still very much a working place to live, with plenty of thriving local businesses and a great range of shops and amenities including butchers, bakers, supermarkets, bank/building society, Post Office, library, doctors, bus station and playing field to name a few. Nailsworth was the first Fair Trade town in the area and this is reflected in its style of food shops, craft shops, restaurants and the like.

Garden The level and extensive gardens offer magnificent views across the surrounding countryside. Leading from the house is a sheltered patio area. From here a gravel path leads you alongside mature Hornbeam hedging, under and past trained Yew trees to where the garden splits and widens. To the left there is a lawned area with mature borders and a store, which further takes you to an open lawn with summerhouse. To the right you reach the extensive off road gravelled parking area complete with unique large wood framed tool and storage barn. To the rear of the cottage is a shared courtyard where there is a small timber shed.
Agents Note As is often found there are some shared access paths that run across the property and garden which we are happy to explain further. Gas boiler fuelled by bottle propane gas - we have our clients' cost for this over the last year. There is a septic tank within the garden and there is a shared soakaway at the rear of the property.
