    • “Brilliant cottage in a central location!”

    • “We've just returned home after a lovely,relaxing holiday at The Leverets cottage. It was so nice to holiday in such a well presented cottage. It had all we needed and more! One small criticism is that there wasn't enough local information Eg nearest Shop or ATM machine or petrol station! All things we needed to know in the first days? As I said small compared to the whole holiday.Found the pub ourselves? Would defiantly recommend it and hopefully we will be back!!”

    • “This is a lovely cottage, very spacious rooms and everything needed for a week away from home. Our son is disabled and although there was a step up into the cottage, we managed quite well to get his wheelchair in and when inside there is plenty of room and wide doors which make it easy to get around. Very convenient for the Cotswold attractions, but nice and quiet in lovely countryside. Can highly recommend staying here.”

    • “The cottage was very spacious, lovely bedrooms and having a wetroom to each is very helpful for anyone with mobility problems. There is a lovely view of the countryside, and the horse, from the twin bedded room. The owners are very pleasant and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. There is plenty of lovely little villages to visit like Broadway. Bourton on the Water, Chipping Campden, to name just a few. I and my friend will certainly be staying at the cottage again when we want to revisit the area.”

    • “Had a week here last week with my husband and my parents who are in their seventies and found this property after searching the internet for self-catering in the Cotswolds area. Many we looked at were small cottages with only one bathroom with showers over plus steep or spiral staircases. This one was ideal as it was all on ground floor and we were able to have a bathroom each, and there was a walk-in wetroom shower in the twin bedroom (as well as the double) which meant because of poor mobility problems they wouldn't have to struggle to get in over the bath. In the master bedroom there was also a roll-top bath with shower attachment in addition to the walk in shower. The property was amazingly spacious - from the large kitchen/diner with a range style cooker and dishwasher to the lounge with 3 x 3 seater sofas (one of which can accommodate 2 further people as it converts to a sofa bed) and both bedrooms had very, very, large wardrobe space which you could even walk into parts of them! My Mum had a fear that she would be cold (going away in November) but the central heating was fantastic with the addition of the gas 'woodburning' style fire in the lounge. As it was fairly mild weather last week we found it very warm inside, even at night. All in all it was a wonderful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our base as well as the Cotswold countryside and villages. It was very peaceful at the Leverets but within 10 minutes in the car you could be at the local Tesco on the outskirts of Gloucester for food shopping and also there are a couple of pubs doing good food a little while away. We had a great meal in the air Balloon on our last evening. Good facilities too for eating in with plenty of pans etc, plus there is a gas barbecue outside for use in the summer. Would love to stay there again.”

    • “Really comfortable for four people. Clean, tidy. Lounge had a lovely gas fire. Lots of seating. The oak floors and beams give it extra character. One suggestion would be to have cleaning equipment, i.e. broom, bucket, mop etc. as we like to clean up after ourselves. We did ask and were given them to use. A little more china would have been helpful as we did cook every day. Very friendly and helpful, would definately use again if in the area. Our daughters thought the same.”

    • “Myself, my wife and 2 friends stopped here at the end of Oct 2011. We rather liked the place. It's nicely done out, with lots of wood floors and doors, and nice furniture. The kitchen and dining area is pretty large. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, and is pretty usable. There's a comfy living room with a decent sized TV, and freesat so you have no trouble getting all the TV channels. My wife and I were in the double room. The en suite bathroom was like something from an up market hotel, with roll-top bath and large walk in shower . Overall we were pretty impressed.”

    • “Very cosy and comfortable. Heating was excellent and I would love to take the kitchen home with me. Everything on one level made it easy for one of the group who has mobility problems and each bedroom being en suite was one of the reasons for choosing the cottage. The supplies for us were very much appreciated as were the Christmas decorations. Very friendly and helpful owners. We couldn't have asked for a better cottage. A real pleasure to stay in.”

    Mrs Carvell, Cottingham, December 2014

    • “We have holidayed with Sykes for 10 years and this is definitely the best yet. The brochure doesn't do it justice. It was much larger than we anticipated and so well appointed. I would raise the star level!”

    Mrs Wheeler, Sherborne, October 2014

    • “Great location. The Leverets cottage is very spacious and clean, details like the mouse carving in the skirting board give the place personality. The fireplace in the living room is magnificent.”

    Mrs Zunde-baker, Carshalton, August 2014

    • “It must be OK or we would not have gone back again!”

    Mr Short, Bideford, July 2014

    • “The Leverets is an outstanding holiday cottage. This was my 4th stay and there is nothing I would criticize or change.”
