We had a fantastic 3 night stay at the Old Cart House. The location is perfect, on the outskirts of the village, walking distance to the local pub and a short drive to Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. The cottage itself is very homely and has everything you need and we loved using the wood burning stove! Our dog also enjoyed the stay.

Nice little base from which to explore a beautiful part of the country. Very clean and well equipped. Because of COVID there were none of the nice touches mentioned in other reviews. I do think we could have had some basic information and instructions sent to us electronically.

The Old Cart House was the perfect base for our first exploration of the amazing Cotswolds. It was very cosy, comfortable, well-equipped and sited to feel quiet, calming and isolated yet very close to our charming, attentive but unobtrusive hosts if we needed advice. We feel very lucky to have found this cottage and really hope to be able to returnRead more in the future to continue the exploration! Thank you so much. Hide
