“Mill view cottage is a really good base for exploring the cotswolds.”
Set in a pretty village on a small development of stone three story houses. On the lower floor it had a well stocked and spacious kitchen, leading to a small conservatory. The view from the conservatory across the small brook to the trees on the other side is quite lovely. The sitting room on the middle floor was adequate for a small family and contains a small sofa bed. The chairs could do with updating. On the third floor there were two good size double rooms, with on suite and family bathroom. The beds are very low and firm. We took a thick mattress topper because of the previous reviews. Which added to the comfort. The cottage was very clean and well presented. We especially appreciated the welcome pack. Thank you ☺ Although advertised with two parking spaces, only one is available and this is rather tight for a large vehicle. We would certainly recommend this house to friends and family visiting the area.
“Loved the location, the cottage was on three levels.”
We came in the back door via the conservatory this had 2 barrel chairs and 2 director chairs not really comfortable for sitting in during an evening to watch the night come in. We moved into the well stocked kitchen that had all the items necessary to prepare a meal. It has a large table and a sofa, can only think it ha the scruffy covers to protect it but still curious as gives the impression of tatty. Again nowhere comfortable to sit, 2 on the sofa and the others on the dining chairs. Upstairs we had the lounge, should have taken some dvds to watch but even that would not have been in comfort as there was just the sofa bed and again 2 barrel chairs. The top floor had the bedrooms one with en-suite and a wardrobe the other had a hanging rail, but the beds as previous guests have said did not afford comfort. Shame the hosts have not thought about the necessary requirement for holiday makers and that is always comfort, especially after a day visiting all the fantastic sites around. They have an ideal little place that is well stocked and well situated, just lacks comfort.
“The cottage was excellent although I wouldn't call it a villageit is more of a really nice housing estate as there is only 1 shop/cafe.”
The only other issue we had was that 1 of our private car parking spaces was occupied by someone's car for 5 of our days in the cottage. We could not find who it belonged to although I sent a text to the cleaner. As we had 2 cars this was frustrating.
“Exellent cottage, very uncomfortable beds..”
I recently stayed with my family over the Cristmas break. The cottage it’s self is absolutely gorgeous and just what we were looking for. The only downside was the beds, we spent the first night bed hoping, to see which was more comfortable. Out of the 6 adults who stayed, we all agreed the beds where terrible, rock hard and so low. My Fiancé ended up purchasing 2 double blow up beds with 2 others making do with the pull out bed in the lounge. As long as you doing mind sleeping on a rock as a mattress or taking your own bed, then this is the perfect getaway cottage.
“Lovely cottage in a good location.”
Could walk, drive or bus to other villages. The only thing wrong was the beds. They are very low and not very comfortable.
