Hyde Tyning Cottage is an elegant and luxurious, 3-bedroom (sleeps 6), 2.5-bathroom country property built in the late 1920’s by the Cadbury family as their chauffeur’s accommodation. The cottage’s contemporary, bespoke oak and glass conservatory forms a stunning open plan, living-dining room, while beside it is a uniquely furnished snug, both with a woodburner fireplace. Outside, the cottage has a wrap-around terrace with BBQ, dining area and fabulous views out to the garden and countryside. The cottage is just 10 minutes’ walk to the village of Minchinhampton, with a pub, tea shop, general store, independent boutiques, and beauty salons. Ideally located for walking, visits to Gatcombe, Highgrove, Stroud Farmers Market, and the wider Cotswolds.
On arrival, guests are greeted with the front of the property where there is a pretty lawn and rose garden, a covered porch, and a handy side porch and door into a spacious utility room, ideal for removing boots, hats, and coats after a day out in the Cotswold countryside. To the side of the cottage is a double garage for guests’ private parking and ideal for storing bicycles too.
A gravel path leads around the back of this secluded property, (passing a woodshed on the way), to a beautiful terrace and patio, with a dining area, sun loungers, BBQ, and large lawn with borders full of flowering shrubs and annuals. A gate at the end of the garden leads directly to the woodland beyond and paths down to the beautiful Chalford Valley and the Thames and Severn Canal.
The handsome exterior of the cottage conceals a stunning interior with its 4-star facilities, beautiful décor, two living rooms, dining area, a fully equipped kitchen/breakfast room, and three very well-appointed double bedrooms, plus one en-suite, one family shower room, and a downstairs cloakroom.
Guests can enter the cottage via the front door, but most people use the convenient side door into the Utility Room with its stone floor, ideal for coming in after a country walk. Here you’ll find a coat and hat rack, a Belfast sink (with a great view over the garden and woodland beyond), a washing machine and dryer, a microwave oven, an ice-making machine, a drinks fridge, plenty of kitchen cabinets containing outdoor crockery, plastic glasses, wine coolers, and vases.
The dual aspect, fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast dining area is a lovely light and bright room with every convenience needed for a self-catering stay. The Kitchen overlooks the front garden and has a beautiful polished limestone floor. It is equipped with wrap-around, immaculate, white kitchen units and a marble preparation surface, a double oven and 5-ring burner hob, a double sink, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, and small smart TV, Otoni kettle, and 4-slice toaster, as well as bakeware and all the utensils, china, and glassware needed for six guests.
At the far end of the Kitchen, beside the door into the dining-living area, is a handy breakfast table, comfortably seating four.

The warm cerise walls and beautiful rug create an inviting, cosy space to retreat to for a quiet read or to watch a film on the large smart TV with Blu-ray player.
Head through the door out of the Snug into the front hallway with cloakroom and stairs up to the bedrooms and a Nest heating control panel beside the cloakroom door.

I cannot recommend this place enough. It is a five minute walk into the village. Just a stunning village and you simply must patronize the pub and the coffee shop. The place was impeccably clean.
We had a wonderful weekend at Hyde Tyning cottage, it was the perfect place for a group of 5 friends to get together. The house was spotless and really well equipped. The provision of luxury handwash, lotion and shampoo, along with robes and slippers made it feel a real treat. The bedrooms are fairly compact but nicely finished and the downstairs area provides plenty of space for cooking, dining and sitting to talk. It was great to be able to walk from the door on public footpaths, onto Minchinhampton common and also into the village for dinner. The cottage is also within easy drive of some lovely areas to explore, so it's a perfect location. we received a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. All in all we had a wonderful stay here and would definitely come back in the future! Thank you!

We had a lovely week in the Cotswolds. The house was perfect for our needs and had everything we could think of. Location ideal and a beautiful back garden for us to enjoy in the evenings.
Jane - September 2021
The house has been recently renovated to a very high standard. It is comfortable and extremely well appointed. The gardens and surrounding land provide a tranquil and relaxing space. We enjoyed cycling around the Cotswolds and there was plenty of space for secure bike storage. The local village is lovely with a fabulous tea room. We would definitely recommend staying at Hyde Tynings if coming to the Cotswolds.
We had a wonderful break at this cottage. It’s set in beautiful grounds in a perfect location. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the break. Owners are very welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. We hope to come back soon.
