    Fantastic cottage in an excellent location for exploring the Cotswolds. The pictures advertising the property don't do it justice as it was far better than expected when we arrived. The fact that each bedroom was en-suite in addition to a house bathroom and house toilet was most welcomed when everyone was getting ready for days out.

    Fantastic cottage in an excellent location for exploring the Cotswolds. The pictures advertising the property don't do it justice as it was far better than expected when we arrived. The fact that each bedroom was en-suite in addition to a house bathroom and house toilet was most welcomed when everyone was getting ready for days out. A well equipped kitchen made food and drinks preparation very easy. There was a BBQ on site for a sunny afternoon outdoor meal and local eatery within 100 yards to give the chef well earned rest too! Days out to Blenheim, Bourton on the water and an outdoor swim in Cirencester were the pick of our week. Thanks for a fab week!
