A really lovely cottage and enclosed garden, ideal for pet owners. It's sheltered, with beautiful pots, and nice and sunny. A veranda allows for outdoor dining and a couple of loungers mean you can relax in comfort. Inside the kitchen is fully equipped and a small cosy sitting room has a really nice log burner, although the amazingly efficient heatRead moreing system means you probably won't need it. We had a lovely time, the owners live next door but don't intrude and are on hand if you need anything. Hide

We stayed at Murcott farm for three nights. Paul met us at the farm house on arrival and was very welcoming. The diary was clean and comfortable. Fresh eggs from the farms hens and a bottle of fizz had been left as a welcome gift. Both didnt last long and were amazing. We had a very relaxing stay and would recommend to anyone seeking the same.

Ideal for a relaxing week to unwind and chill with our dog. Took trips out to the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds, and the Severn and Wye valleys. Super hosts, really welcoming and thoughtful. Footpaths around difficult if you have a large dog, as they have to be carried over stiles. We felt very secure under Covid-19 restrictions.

Excellent location for both the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean etc. Masses of great walks for dog owners straight from the property and beyond.
