  • "This cottage is comfortable, characterful and ideally located for the town centre and the wonderful local walks."

    We were well looked after, with the manager providing us with a cafetière very quickly on our first morning. The bed is very comfortable and the bathrooms are gleaming. Highly recommended.

  • "Cottage was great especially with a dog and Broadway is a lovely with plenty to do and a brilliant base for a Cotswold holiday."

    Lots of lovely dog walks up towards the tower.

  • "A lovely cottage in the perfect location for all the amenities of Broadway."

    Parking so close to the village and cottage was helpful. Comfortable beds and en-suite, within a quiet village location allowed us lots of rest and relaxation. Good outdoor space. There is limited room in the second bedroom, however our son slept really well. A dressing table in the main bedroom would have been a real bonus. The kitchen is compact but clean. Equipment that could be used in the microwave would have been good. Curling up in the evening with a good book in front of the open fire was perfect. We would definitely consider returning to May Cottage again. Thank you.

  • "Great location close to centre of Broadway, road very quiet in the evening and overnight."

    Car parking in car park accross the road was handy - only a 1 minute walk away. We parked on double yellows outside property to unload and load luggage. The property was very clean and the downstairs layout was very good and spacious, lack of a downstairs toilet maybe an issue for some but this is clear in the listing. Back garden faces west so gets plenty of sun and not overlooked much. Bedrooms are a decent size, only criticism of the property upstairs would be a slight lack of storage. We were 2 adults and a 4 year old but I imagine 2 couples would struggle a bit. There was also no dressing table and mirror with a plug close by. Overall a very good cottage which with a few tweaks could be excellent.

  • "May Cottage is very large inside, with plenty of room to spread out."

    I loved the decor downstairs, and the open fire in the front room was a real treat - perfect for cosy evenings in. Would definitely come back!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely little comfy cottage."

    The weekend we arrived the weather was very wet. The cottage host left us an umbrella which we thought was very thoughtful. The beds are very comfy. The kitchen is well equipped and well laid out. Our only negative about the cottage is the stairs. We had my elderly parents with us (in their 80s) and they found the stairs a bit narrow so had to use them with extreme care. However, this didn’t stop us from having a lovely time. Location is excellent for Broadway high street.

  • "Everything was as described, the cottage is in a great location in Broadway."

    It would have been nice to have some reclining garden chairs or sun beds, which would have made sitting in the garden more comfortable for longer .

  • "This was our postponed Easter holiday but it was reassuring to be able to rebook on the website very easily and no further problems."

    The cottage is well situated in the town and double glazed so quite quiet. Convenient for many Cotswold attractions Snowshill and Hidcote Manor gardens and lots of walking from the door or nearby. Good to have parking as the town gets quite busy although the garage door is quite difficult to open. Cottage beautifully clean and very warm and well equipped. Good to have a dishwasher and freezer a bonus as the only supermarket in Broadway is a bit limited. Only niggle was the shower In the main bedroom was difficult to adjust and the bath could do with a grab rail as the shower is over the bath which is rather high. All in all a lovely much needed holiday with great weather.

  • "We really loved the cottage and the excellent location."

    We also enjoyed the garden very much. Unable to control hot water in the showers. It was so hot we couldn't under the shower. Would have preferred to drink out of mugs but unfortunately the only crockery was 4 small cups and 1 mug.

    Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you experienced issues with the water temperature. We have tested this since your visit and we have not found any problems. We always try to keep the cottage well-equipped and were not aware that the mugs had been removed. We would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention and have now replaced the missing items. Kind Regards, The Property Owner Property Owner

  • "On arrival the cottage had not been cleaned and after several voicemails the owner contacted us later that night and arranged for us to stay at The Lygon Arms Hotel at his expense for 2 rooms as there were 4 of us."

    We were very grateful as it was 11.00pm by the time it was all sorted and hadn’t eaten and were very stressed as we didn’t know what we were going to do. The following lunchtime we returned to May Cottage and it was immaculate and everything we had hoped for. It was my birthday weekend and unfortunately I lost a night out as it took several hours to sort but I am looking forward to returning next year. The fireplaces were lovely and cosy, and it is a very comfortable cottage within walking distance to the village. My only note would be to add some mirrors in the bedrooms and a bread knife in the kitchen.

    Very comfortable and everything you need. We didn’t think the photos did it justice. Very comfy beds. Great location. Owner even paid for ‘now’ subscription on tv as we had a rainy day, we are very appreciative of that. Great garden for the dogs! The cottage was very clean and spacious. Lots of light sunny rooms.

  • "Positives: Great location."

    Just a few minutes walk to the village centre. Very quiet and peaceful although on a main road. Not overlooked by anyone from the back. Kitchen well equipped, including a compact dishwasher. Nicely decorated throughout. Car parking space and a secure single garage available across the road in the long stay car park. Negatives: The smaller bedroom is quite tight for space. The bigger bedroom gets direct sunlight in the mornings. The curtains are not lined with blackout material so we got woken up very early every morning with the light. The duvets and woollen blankets were quite warm for the weather conditions. Cotton blankets would have been great. The main spoiler for us was the strong wet dog odour downstairs in the two living rooms as well as the bottom of the stairs. A wet dog has most obviously been on the sofas in the main living room, leaving the awful odour on even the cushions. We found the voile curtain in the kitchen had been ripped very badly on one side, the other bears dog bite marks. We had to report these issues to the owner. I had to buy a can of Fabreeze to try and get rid of the awful odour. Even with 2 liberal applications, the unpleasant odour still lingered on. We had not realised this was a pet friendly cottage when we booked. We will avoid booking a pet friendly property in the future for sure.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I am sad to hear your stay did not meet expectations. I aim to provide the highest possible standards at my property and have taken your feedback on-board. I have spoken my cleaner and it has been resolved. In addition, curtains have been replaced. The pictures and property description on the website are mirror of my property. I always provide my contact detail to my guests advising to contact me if they have any issues so that it can be rectified straightaway so that they can enjoy their stay. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage with eveything you would need for a relaxing week."

    Recently renovated with very nice decor. Great kitchen with all mod cons including dishwasher and excellent washing machine. Iron and ironing board and vacuum cleaner provided, also tablets for washing machine which is a nice touch. Only issue I would bring up is had to work out central heating for ourselves. There should be instructions on settings and controls so central heating can be operated easily as it did get cold in the mornings and evenings. Overall a fantastic cottage and an easy 2 minute walk into town, and also to the Cotswold way for other nice walks especially to the Broadway Tower. We would definitely stay here again.

    We didn't encounter any problems. A very small quibble, a pair of oven gloves rather than one glove would have been useful .The towels , whilst very clean were a little worn. But we will definitely stay there again. The location is excellent, walking distance to the shops, easy parking. The garden has seating to eat outside. Very good washing machine. It was a lovely holiday let.
