Great time here. Lucky to have a week of good weather. Glad the hay was safely baled before any rain came. Well placed for several Cotswolds villages and National Trust properties. Cottage was clean and had all the facilities we needed. Laundry right by the cottage.

Lovely cottage, great peaceful location. I used it as a base when I came down from Newcastle for my sons graduation at Warwick University, and it was an easy 35mins drive away.

Comfortable and clean; there is a step up to the sitting room and one down to the bedroom and to avoid absent mindedly tripping, I placed a chair in my path - no problems! All equipment good and the fridge has a decent size freezer compartment. Most importantly, the bed was comfortable.
