We spent a week here for Christmas and it was absolutely lovely! The cottage is quirky as other reviewers have said but we really liked it. It was so warm and cozy and Martin & Hitomi provided 2 decorated Christmas trees which was a nice touch. It is in a lovely village with some areas for walking and close to a few pubs that do good food. We wouldRead more definitely recommend this cottage and we are already planning another stay. Hide

Loved the quirkiness of it. In quiet peaceful lane with beautiful garden. Well situated for Tewkesbury. Problem could be with families as only one shower room and toilet.

The pictures cannot do this place justice, it really is unique. Staying here felt like a real experience because of the properties interesting design and great comfort level (the massive Victorian conservatory was a real feature).

The cottage feels packed with old relicRead mores and has the quirky old features showing off its original construction, but is also full of all the mod cons. the perfect balance of old and new.
