are there things within walking distance, if so what?
The lady who's in charge will give you lots of information about good places to eat and other things to do. You will need a car to travel around the area as we did ourselves. In Stroud itself, we only had food in places where the lady recommended... we didn't do much there as we were driving to other villages to do walks and enjoy the sceneries.
I have to say it's a lovely quiet place to relax and enjoy the countryside. Don't expect to find lots of shops in that area... But you will find lots of shops in a big city like Bath.
Hope this is helpful..
