Butterrow Gate is a beautiful former toll house located in the vibrant market town of Stroud

Located in: Stroud
Welcome to Butterrow Gate, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.



Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Butterrow Gate is a distinctive, beautifully renovated Grade II listed property which sits proudly on Butterrow Hill on the outskirts of the market town of Stroud. Located in the heart of the stunning "Five Valleys" region of the Cotswolds, Stroud is well known for its bohemian vibe and eclectic mix of shops, with Jasper Conran describing the weekly Farmers' Market held in the town as "the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds". The Five Valleys converge on Stroud and contain some of the most beautiful countryside Britain has to offer. Butterrow Gate is also well placed for exploring further afield, with the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham both within easy reach.

Originally the toll house serving the Stroud to Cirencester turnpike road, the charges are still displayed on the stone exterior and period touches continue throughout the property as well. The living spaces feature stone mullioned Tudor arched windows, original Cotswold stone walls and exposed beams, and these character features have been complemented by modern facilities including wireless internet access, underfloor heating and a Freesat TV with DVD player.

Butterrow Gate sleeps two guests, in one lovely bedroom, with a downstairs shower room. There is an elevated spacious patio area with spectacular views over the old town of Stroud and the surrounding countryside, and free on-street parking is available close to the property.

House Rules

Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits
A security deposit of £100 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.

The maximum occupancy of the property is two guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than two guests at the property.

One small dog (no larger than a Cocker Spaniel, unless agreed with the owner) is accepted, at a cost of £25 per booking.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Bed linen and towels
Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

Arrival and departure times
Arrival time is after 4pm and departure time is by 10am. Access is via a key safe, therefore it does not matter if you are arriving late at night.

Bed sizes and configurations
Master bedroom: Double bed

Family bathroom: Walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin

Heating, fuel and logs
The property has a gas central heating system.
Electricity and gas are included in the rental price. An initial basket of logs is provided for the wood burning stove from September to April, and further log supplies can be purchased locally.

Services provided
The property has free wireless internet access and a Freesat TV with a DVD player.
There is no telephone at the property.
Mobile phone reception is generally OK.

Free on-street parking is readily available close to the property.

Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services may be available on request.

Child friendly facilities
Regrettably, Butterrow Gate does not accept children under the age of eight years.

Initial consumables
A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including uneven floorboards, a narrow kitchen and multiple floors, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
