Lovely apartment, immaculately clean with high quality appliances. Beautiful views over the fields and plenty of good walks from the village . Upper Brailes is an ideal location to visit the Cotswolds area. Our hosts, Mike and Debi, were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a stay.

Very nice owners and the apartment was beautifully done. We had a lovely time. It was, however, really small so best for short breaks.
