Beautiful well equipped cottage in The Cotswolds. Very comfortable and exactly as described on website. Large garden with orchard which is a haven for wildlife. We saw woodpeckers, nuthatches and lots of other birds. We saw a small mixed group of deer in the orchard and evidence of foxes and badgers. Lots of interesting places within a short distanRead morece. Hide

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The cottage itself is comfortable and a real home from home. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The garden is huge a great for a wander and the whole feel of the place is very relaxing. All the places we wanted to visit were all within a half hour drive so the location was terrific too.

The property was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The living room overlooked a large garden where we could watch the local wildlife, including a deer, pheasant and woodpecker along with many other birds. Shipston has plenty of pubs to eat at which are good value. Warwick Castle and Blenheim Palace plus lots of other local stately homeRead mores were well worth the visit. Hide

We chose this cottage mainly with my 89 year old dad in mind. It was perfect! Carpets throughout, comfortable chairs and beds. Lovely outlook from the lounge. Good shower and Sky TV! Home from home! It is an ideal place to stay as central to many places to visit in the Cotswolds. A very clean, well equipped cottage.

Outstanding from start to finish. Cottage was in an immaculate state upon arrival and had everything you could possibly need. Special thanks must go to the owners who treated us to some freshly pressed cider during our stay. 10/10.
