Our "cottage" which was a converted barn is based in lechlade, about thirty minutes walk away. Very quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Dogs are allowed, and although we didn't take ours with us, you wouldn't know dogs have been in the property as it is very clean. It is well based as there are lots of places to go around lechlade. Plenty of supermarketsRead more in nearby carterton to choose from. This was our second visit and will go again soon. Lovely hosts. Hide

The cottage was well equipped and clean, and in a very quiet location. Ideal for the places we wanted to visit and road network is good. The eggs and wine left on arrival was appreciated and tasty.

We had a lovely week in the Old Dairy, very private and quiet apart from the aircraft from Brize Norton. Dog friendly area with loads of walks though it is easy to stray into the private fishing lake nearby. Owners very welcoming without being intrusive. We would love to return there again.

A truly beautiful cottage which was exceptionally clean, well equipped and furnished. The addition of a secure garden was perfect for our Airedale Terrier. The cottage was a short walk into the village of Lechlade and had direct access to many local walks. We will definitely return.

Fantastic holiday cottage in a rural location but still within a 20 minute walk to the market town with 4 pubs! Friendly owners who made us feel welcome on their farm with eggs and wine. Definitely recommend staying at this property as so many things to do locally.
