The cottage was very cosy and in a lovely location. The owner came to see us on our first evening to see if there was anything we wanted to know and the Wi-Fi was very efficient considering we were out in the country. We took our 8 month old grandson with us and there was nothing there that could cause him any harm. We would strongly recommend this cottage as a lovely retreat.

Perfect situation. Felt at home. Everything was perfect. Thank you!

Mrs Elgrably, December 2013

A very special place that is natural and not over commercialised. We felt very much at home here.

Mr Johnson, Knebworth, October 2013

The area itself is very quiet but not too far from Stroud. There are a number of nice golf courses nearby, as well as some great pubs and restaurants. There are a plenty of very nice walking routes for those that enjoy walking. It is the perfect place for a quiet getaway.
