The Studio at Pensile House

- The cottage can sleep up to 4, using a 140cm sprung sofa bed in the good sized open plan living room (bathroom is en suite to the bedroom)
- Large French doors open out onto a sunny and sheltered terrace area for dining and relaxing, while a Morso wood burner makes eating round the kitchen island a pleasure on cool evenings
- Fibre internet direct to the cottage gives very fast 50mbit/s speeds.
- Situated next door to Pensile House Cottage, with a connecting gate that can be unlocked where both cottages are taken by the same group, allowing 4-6 guests to stay in luxury

Wonderful stay. Fabulous hosts. High end accommodation. I found parking difficult but have spent most of my life in USA so have always found driving difficult in the Cotswolds. My son visited and backed in and out no problem! Thoroughly recommend as a peaceful beautiful place to stay

This is an absolute gem of a place, pics don’t do it justice!! Highly recommend and location is superb if you want to enjoy the Cotswolds, we certainly did. We also met the very friendly Patrick and Amanda and their lovely little dogs too, this is one place we intend to come back to for sure , thanks again.

We had a lovely relaxing break at Pensile
House Studio last weekend. It was well equipped and very comfortable
although we did feel that there was one sofa too many squeezed into the
living area. We would definitely stay again if visiting the area in the

Beautiful place, really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was delightful, and an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds. Nailsworth itself was lovely, with nice pubs and restaurants, but a perfect jumping off point for exploring. The drive was interesting, but we quickly learnt to drive past the property and reverse in with our 4WD – smaller vehicles will find different ways in. Very pleasant stay here.

We had a wonderful time! The studio was absolutely beautiful and had everything we could possibly wish for. Great location and great property. Loved our little outside space and only a few minute walk to the center of Nailsworth.
Stayed: 15th Jul 2022
The studio is perfectly located just a short walk from Nailsworth town centre… very handy for shopping and eating out – no need to drive. You can also go for lovely walks directly from the studio – either out to the woods, or up onto the common if you don’t mind an uphill hike! Our dog particularly liked the woods… Alternatively, you can just stay at base and enjoy the fabulous view! The studio is comfortable, spacious, and stylishly decorated. Well equipped on many fronts. Communication was quick and clear and helpful. Highly recommended.

Wonderful studio apartment in a really beautiful part of the Cotswolds. Had a wonderful break from the city enjoyed the Stroud market, scenic walks/drives and amazing local bakery and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again!

Quiet, well positioned apartment in a lovely little town. Best equipped Airbnb we’ve ever stayed in with underfloor heating, breadmaker, dishwasher and washer dryer. Great furnishings. Would highly recommend. One point, bring a smaller vehicle if you have one as it would be hard to park here with a large car.
Stayed: 11th Feb 2022
This fabulous accommodation in a beautiful location ticks all the boxes. Despite the fact that we spent 10 days there during which there were three major storms that blasted the UK, it couldn’t dampen our experience. Nailsworth is cute and very close by and the surrounding Cotswolds are a national treasure. Unconditionally recommended.
Stayed: 5th Nov 2021
Such a gorgeous location and beautiful studio. My partner and I stayed for 2 weeks and it was exactly what we were looking for. Also, the owners were lovely and very helpful. They have gone over and beyond to make the place feel homely. Highly recommended!

The studio at Pensile House is lovely and very comfortable with everything that you could possibly need including great products in the bathroom. It is situated above a valley with a fabulous view out over the valley and a paved terrace to sit out on in good weather. Great walks in beautiful local countryside and an easy 5 minute stroll into Nailsworth full of independent shops and restaurant/cafes. I hope to be able to come and stay again.

Great location, so lovely to walk into town and have amenities at your doorstep. Second time staying at this home as we liked it so much the first time.
Stayed: 12th Oct 2020
Great property and location. Ideal for exploring the Cotswolds and having a lovely base to go back to. The stove was a nice touch. The only things we found were missing were toilet rolls, kitchen roll, sponge or dish cloth and any coffee pods. But the Morrison’s around the corner is less than a 5 minute walk and everything is readily available.
Stayed: 9th Oct 2020
A snug little studio in the most perfect and lovely location. Loved having a cup of tea in bed in the morning and looking out at the trees. Fantastic facilities, loved the underfloor heating and fire as well as the very well equipped kitchen! Perfect for a break

A great property with lovely decor and furnishings for a comfy weekend getaway and a perfect location for exploring the nearby beautiful countryside and towns. Would definitely stay here again.
Stayed: 14th Aug 2020
Such a beautiful, comfortable and cosy space. We stayed two weeks and had glorious sunshine and horrific thunder storms so we made good use of the decking and sunbeds but also felt all cosy curling up on the huge sofa during the rainstorms. The beds are super comfy as well and the kitchen is so well equipped – coffee machine and smoothie maker were both real treats! Great location, easy to stroll down into town for a meal or to buy bits and bobs and loads of fabulous walks nearby. All together a great stay!
Stayed: 6th Jul 2020
Cannot speak more highly of the place, from the quality of the linen, to the thoughtful packet of fudge, to the view from the terrace. Everything you could want from a short break. Great location as well to explore the Cotswolds.
Stayed: 6th Mar 2020
Fantastic stay at the studio. Perfect for a weekend in the Cotswolds. Location is fabulous and the accommodation is great. So much natural light and a really comfortable bed. We brought our dog and she was very comfortable there with space to play outside and walks on the doorstep. Will definitely stay again!

This is a very well-equipped, beautifully-situated studio, and a bit Tardis-like: it’s much bigger on the inside than you might imagine from the outside. There’s nothing that hasn’t been thought of on the inside and outside; great kitchen facilities and comfortable furniture and, had it been dry, we’d have made much use of the terrace and its great views. We ate locally twice – The Olive Tree both times – and can’t recommend that highly enough either, not least for its proximity to the studio. All in all, a very lovely stay.
Stayed: 8th Feb 2020
Really great find completely tucked away in Nailsworth. The studio offers great views and total privacy. We particularly loved the windows on both sides of the bedrooms, and starting the fireplace was super easy (even for towners like us who aren’t used to them). While we were here in February and couldn’t make use of the outside space, I am sure the terrace is a veritable suntrap in the summer. We’d love to return.
Stayed: 10th Jan 2020
The studio is fabulous. The location is stunning and within walking distance to everything you need in Nailsworth. We were lucky enough to meet the hosts and they were lovely. Immaculately clean, it was just a shame we couldn’t enjoy a BBQ due to the weather as the terrace has amazing views. Would definitely return as the town is wonderful.

This cosy little house was absolutely perfect. We were 4 girls wanting to escape London for a quiet weekend in the Cotswolds, and this hit the spot. It’s even more beautiful than the photos and cleanliness is 10/10. The island in the kitchen and underfloor heating were also great perks. The location was central to everything you need in the small idyllic town of Nailsworth. You can go on scenic walks from your doorstep or it’s a short drive to Westonbirt Arboretum. Would recommend this place to couples or small groups of friends who like to be cosy

We loved our stay at the new Pensile House Studio and have nothing negative to report.
We absolutely love Pensile House Studio.
The cupboard space is very welcome, and the general layout of the studio is cosy and perfect for just the two of us.
Patrick very kindly responded to the few “Whats App” questions I had of him, promptly. I left our comments in the book too.
The only additional comment that I would add to this is that a bigger fridge/freezer would be welcome, but given the layout and the plant of the kitchen and the location of the current fridge, not sure how you would accommodate it. Of course, I am sure that not all your guests stay for two week periods as we do and may not have need of a bigger fridge/freezer.

We loved the stay in the cottage it’s a lovely property really well furnished and finished!
There were a couple of things that I would point out one being that the key box is actually on the wall as you go up the steps rather than to the side of the door, it was ok for us arriving in daylight but for anyone arriving in the dark I think they would struggle to find it! Also I did leave a note for the owner explaining that the washer/dryer was not working, we didn’t manage to use it as it came up with an error code which we googled and said something about temperature sensor if I remember correctly.
They were only small things but I thought it was worth a mention, we would definitely go back though as the setting and cottage were beautiful!
Thanks for your nice comments. Sorry about the washing machine - its now fixed! We hope the key safe should be OK, as lights come on at night when you go up or down the steps. Thanks again.
