We had a Wonderfull week at Porthole Cottage, it's beautifully appointed with all "mod cons" you could need. Location is great being really central to shops and restaurants and pub, with an ample sized off street parking space. Positioned aside a river I can imagine sitting outside would be the order of the warmer days. A short drive to Westonbirt Read moreArboritum which was great and also not far from all the regular tourist areas of the Cotswolds AONB. Hide

Porthole is a lovely cottage, well equipped to provide a home from home but we did find the close proximity to some of the neighbours somewhat disconcerting on occasions. Regrettably, for this reason, I would hesitate to recommend this property.
