Luxury self-catering house near Gloucester


The beguiling juxtaposition of this sleek contemporary pad with a listed traditional Cotswolds cottage sitting alongside brings about a breath-taking luxury abode quite unlike any other. The Find is a flawless property formed of natural stone, wall-to-ceiling glass and unique fair-faced concrete interiors, which provide the canvas for the minimalist theme which flows throughout. This luxury self-catering property has a unique sloping grass rooftop that buries the house into the hillside to complement the natural surroundings. The designer's theatrical approach to space and light welcomes the outside in so that you needn't miss a moment of the majestic setting.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The Find boasts six bedrooms in total; two double first floor rooms in the cottage, and four emperor-size bedrooms (two of them en suite) on the ground floor in the contemporary main house. All bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling glass doors which slide into pockets opening the rooms up to the outside, with electronic-controlled blinds ensuring a blissful night's sleep. There is a family bathroom in the main house and one in the cottage also. Glacier white Corian-lined bathrooms with quirky tubs and luxury rainshower heads ensure a luxurious pampering experience for all.


Encircled by five sweeping valleys opening out to the River Severn and made famous by Laurie Lee's novel “Cider with Rosie”, the scenery around this part of the Cotswolds is dramatic and picturesque. The expansive rooftop terrace is an unrivalled spot for star-gazing and al fresco dining. Whether soaking up the sunshine during summer months, or huddled beneath a blanket in wintertime complete with steaming mug of cocoa, the roof terrace at The Find will prove a favourite spot to relax and reflect. 

For Relaxation

The South Cotswolds epitomises all that is best about an unspoiled English idyll– listen to the birdsong, enjoy the butterflies, delight in the rolling landscape... and escape from the pressures of everyday life. Stand atop the roof terrace taking a moment to contemplate the mesmeric surroundings, breathing in the fresh air and simply embracing the blissful serenity all around. 


There is ample parking for several cars. The property is extremely well-equipped with two Gaggenau ovens, an induction hob, two washing machines and dryers, three dishwashers (two in main house one in the cottage), and a home cinema system.
