This cottage is situated in the older part of Combe Down village in a quiet no-through road. Originally a private carriage way Gladstone Road was laid out in the 1830's by Henry Fowler Cotterell, a leading Bath land surveyor who had property interests in the area. Other properties in the road are surveyed on the Tithe map of 1851 and still stand today.
Modern day Gladstone road is a quiet, no through road with an eclectic mixture of past and present housing with the 19th century cottages, mixing with larger detached residences and more modern day sympathetic terraced homes and bungalows.
