The original cottages that form the west side of Cavanbah are built of local stone, we believe the cottages date back to 1855. Over the last 50 years, these cottages have been incorporated into one building, extended, and renovated. Further renovations and improvements by ourselves. A beautiful example of village living nestled amongst period homes. A detached stone cottage located in the heart of Old Bussage, a private driveway leads you to the property with a wealth of parking up to a detached double garage. The current owners have taken considerable care and attention to detail, to sympathetically restore and modernise the cottage. Having combined beautiful period features with modern living.

The cottage is in an area known as Old Bussage which has many stone houses of the same period, linked together with quiet, narrow lanes – making it one the best kept secrets of the Cotswolds. We have found the community to be welcoming, helpful and friendly. Close by, there are playing fields and a beechwood, which are great for children, dogs, and people of all ages. Also close by are the Village Hall and the ancient Church of St Michael. The Ram Inn is a particularly popular pub and restaurant which is within a short stroll from the property. Further afield, there are woods, villages and communities that have made it such a wonderful location to live.


From Stroud follow the London road out of town towards Cirencester, continue to follow passing Thrupp and Brimscombe. You will approach a sign on the left hand side for Bussage & Eastcombe. Turn left onto Toadsmoor road which becomes Vatch lane. At the top of the hill turn right onto The Ridgeway and immediately right onto The Ridge and turn right onto Cowswell lane. Drive past a small green on your right and the lane starts to narrow. Very shortly you will see a drive going up on the left hand side. This leads to a gathering of private properties. Follow up the drive to the top and in the top right hand corner you will see the back of the cottage with the chipping driveway to the side.
