St Annes

Stroud, Gloucestershire
Bed & Breakfast

Farmers' market breakfasts and pubs an easy stroll – work up an appetite on the Cotswold Way! A charming family and pretty village home


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Step straight off the narrow pavement into a sunny hall and a warm and welcoming family home. Iris and Greg have made their pretty 17th-century house, in the heart of this bustling village, as eco-friendly as possible. Comfy bedrooms are charming; the four-poster room has a tiny en suite shower room. Farmers’ market breakfasts are a feast, the Aga kitchen is a friendly space, and Rollo the dog (who has his own sofa) loves children. Painswick is known as ‘the Queen of the Cotswolds’: enjoy superb rambles through orchid meadows and beech woods carpeted with bluebells; visit good pubs on the way. Great value and perfect for walkers without a car.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Iris McCormick

  • St Annes is within strides of several excellent places to eat. We have 2 pubs, a restaurant, a bistro and the rather grand Painswick Hotel so there are places to eat from the simple supper with dog under the table through to haut cuisine.
  • The Woolpack in the Slad valley is a heavenly 2 miles walk away over Juniper Hill and down into "Laurie Lee" country. Enjoy a "Cider with Rosie" moment in the Woolpack pub, arguably one of the best pubs in Britain.
  • A short stroll up the hill from St Annes brings you to the enchanting Rococo Gardens, wild and rambling with follies, woodland brimming with wildlife and little corners to tuck yourself in for a quiet moment or gaze at the view down the Painswick Valley.
  • A short walk or very quick drive brings you up the hill behind the village to the Painswick Beacon. If the weather is clear you can see south to the Severn Bridges, North to the Malverns and West to Wales and the Brecon Beacons.
  • Stroud farmers market on Saturday morning is 3.5 miles by bus (or a lovely walk). Stalls brimming with local culinary wonders, colourful and wacky locals, this is part of Gloucestershire still holds strong to it's"Arts & Crafts" roots.
  • Come to Painswick in July for "Art Couture", in September for Apple Day & Painswick Feast, come in April and May for the scent of bluebells under beech woods. Come in December for Christmas in Gloucester Cathedral. Come anytime for wonderful walks
