    5 stars on all 3. Thanks for a great stay

  • "We had a great stay here and would thoroughly recommend to others."

    Great location for getting out and about in the Cotswolds. Beautifully done, and very clean. Kitchen is kitted out with absolutely everything that might be needed. Really comfortable beds, and great to have two separate bathrooms if staying here with others - both shower and bath. Usefully has in built stair gate which no doubt would be helpful for those with kids, and for us as we had our dog with us. Great to have an enclosed space outside for those with dogs like us, and lovely walks straight from the doorstep. Pub down the road looks lovely for a really nice meal (sadly we couldn't try as there was a wedding). Only slight negative thing would be around getting access via the keypads, which I know from other feedback, others have raised difficulty with. May be helpful if instructions could make it clear it is necessary to put your palm or several fingers across the pad to activate the pad, and pointing with one finger doesn't work. And that the pin is just for the bottom door, and does not give access to the upstairs door.

  • "The cottage was quite beautiful and located perfectly for different dog walks, using our 'outstanding circular walks of the Cotswolds - ordinance survey' book."

    We used Tesco's to deliver a food shop (have to book a slot well in advance as the slots go very quickly). Off street parking is ample and the cottage tastefully and well decorated, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms bountiful. The Feathers Nest pub, 200m away is dog friendly inside a particular bar area and they have saddles for bar stools! We had a sharing platter for £20 and a drink each. A tip was added and it was over £40 for a very small lunch. Went there once for the experience!

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The area is so beautiful so I'm thrilled you managed to get out and about to really experience the beauty. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again in the future. Best Wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The property was just what we wanted."

    We had problem with the key cards, had to call someone to let us back in, when we could not make the cards work. The man told us how to feed the code in manually. The feathered nest Inn in nether westcote is very expensive, we had Sunday lunch there and two courses cost £48 a person, so advice to seek meals elsewhere.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback, I agree with you it is quite pricey, hopefully it was tasty though. If you can ask us next time you book with us for recommendations we will be happy to help. Apologies about the key cards we are planning to change them. we look forward to welcoming you again soon Property Owner

    Problem with new hotel style key, only 1 working would appreciate earlier access to the cottage in line with other properties, not 6pm

    We're sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the key card. We are currently looking to bring the check-in time back and hope to implement this in the near future. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Granary."

    It was very clean and well equipped. The master bed was really comfortable and the kitchen lovely with wonderful views to enjoy whilst eating. We did eat at the Feathered Nest and rally enjoyed it. A couple of things that would make it even better, the sofas in the lounge are not very comfortable, particularly the jade one. The shower in the master bedroom has no pressure and was unuseable, I noted that another guest had also mentioned this in an earlier review. There was lots of info on things to do but sadly no books on local walks which would have been really helpful. Lastly the entry time at 6pm was a shock. This is not shown in the property description and only revealed after booking. It really should be highlighted in the property description. We did get in touch with Manor Cottages and they were able to bring the time down to 5pm for us which we appreciated.

    Many thanks for your feedback on The Granary. We agree The Feathered Nest is a lovely place to eat. Our maintenance team have looked at the shower and the situation has now been rectified. We appreciate 6pm is late and we will always endeavour to allow entry earlier. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage much larger than it appears from the outside in a small village with little other than an expensive pub."

    Very well situated though for the wider towns and villages - all within easy reach. The cottage was extremely well equipped - perhaps a little too well as we had no space for our shopping! Cleanliness was good overall but lots of spiderwebs and the shower in the largest bedroom could do with a bit of updating. It would have been nice to have provided a few family games and some more DVDs but overall we enjoyed our stay and would return.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and will pass on your suggestions for improvement to the Housekeeper, and Owner. We would love to welcome you back to The Granary anytime in the future. Property Owner

    Overdale Equestrian is in the village if you're a keen rider. Note that the garden is only accessible from outside - not directly from the house.

  • "The cottage was lovely but to say it had a deep clean due to COVID was a laugh - hair in the plug hole, moths & dead flies on window sills & floor, dust on skirtings, tops."

    Also very thrifty with loo rolls !!! Left it in better state than found. Had been looking forward to walking to the Feathered Nest on an evening but too pricey. Apart from that a lovely sunny week & plenty of walks.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you encountered during your stay. We hope that these did not effect your retreat too much and woud love to welcome you back anytime in the future. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Cotswolds."

    The granary was a really lovely place to stay perfectly located and very well equipped. The beds were comfortable , the kitchen extremely well equipped and the views fantastic, we found the lounge area a relaxing area to sit in the evenings. We enjoyed lots of long walks with the dog, visiting a variety of places including Burford, Bourton on the water, Stow in the Wold and Broadway. The week was made perfect by the weather! Whilst the local pub is well worth a visit to take the spectacular views from the beer garden it is very expensive and probably better suited for special occasions. Therefore we chose to eat out in other places when we were out and about -of which there are many !!

  • "We had a very nice stay at The Granary, in a beautiful peaceful location."

    The house was very well furnished with good facilities and a kitchen well provided with cutlery, utensils, china etc., well up to 5* standard. The lighting in the kitchen was ceiling lights which cast ones shadow on the work surfaces, with no alternative lighting to give good vision. The same was true in the en suite with bath, where the sloping ceiling gave restricted headspace when getting in/out of the bath. We had not appreciated that the outside seating area could only be accessed from outside, making al fresco dining slightly awkward. Maybe it was mentioned and we missed it. Recycling and waste disposal instructions were confusing, with 2 separate sets of instructions that were quite different! We decided to use the coloured plastic bags left in the property, but noticed that none of the neighbours did the same. And the previous occupants had ignored any instructions to separate categories of recycling, which the dustmen seemed to accept!! These are not overly serious complaints, but since we had the impression that this was a recent conversion for renting out, the comments might help the owners to make The Granary even better than it already is. They are to be congratulated on a fine conversion of the building.

    Many thanks for your feedback - it's greatly appreciated! Your comments will be put to the owner and the housekeeping team will make sure that the waste disposal instructions are up to date and clearly displayed for the next guests. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay nonetheless and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Cotswolds again in the future! Property Owner

  • "The Granary is absolutely gorgeous."

    Very well equipped (even better than home). The kitchen has more or less everything you could think of (even a kitchen aid and nutribullet). All other rooms are very comfortable too. Spotlessly clean (so a round of applause to the cleaning staff). Pub within a 2 min walk (although a bit pricey). Would absolutely recommend and would love to return one day ourselves.

    Great child/dog gate at the stairs to ensure unwanted guests don’t follow you to bed, I wish more cottages did this as I always bring my own. However it should be in the description as didn’t need to bring my own. Great location with a very friendly gastro pub just down the road which is very chilled. Off-road parking and small stoned garden area. We would definitely consider returning. We have used Sykes Holidays a couple of times and always had a great service.

    The Granary is such a beautiful cottage. The furnishings, interior design and finishing touches are very luxurious and of an exceptionally high standard. The views from the kitchen windows and living room windows upstairs are so beautiful. Set in a quiet location in Nether Westcote, but so close to Stow-On-The-Wold and Bourton-On-The-Water and not far from major shops at Witney, makes this cottage the perfect location for convenience. Also it is so wonderful to explore the local town of Burford. The kitchen has everything you could ever want, with the highest standard of equipment and utensils. We truly loved our stay at The Granary and will look forward to our next visit. The owners were so wonderful and provided us with the most amazing welcome basket, which was greatly appreciated. If we could rate higher than a 10 out of 10 we would. Anyone who choses to stay at The Granary will be very happy with their choice.

The property

The Granary is a typical Cotswolds property, that is very well suited to either couples or a small family.

Located in the charming village of Nether Westcote, a village ideal for visiting the many honeypot places that this region is well known for - Burford, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water and is positioned in a glorious rural location.

Inside, the barn is an 'upside-down' home with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor, whilst upstairs is the living area with great views across the village plus a modern and stylish kitchen / diner.

That said, you may not do much cooking as the excellent Feathered Nest (pub) is a few hundred yards down the lane and one of the most popular pubs in the area - which enjoys spectacular views from the garden (http://www.thefeatherednestinn.co.uk) For those who like a little bit of exclusive shopping you can pop to Daylesford Organics in Kingham - one of the pre-eminent Cotswolds' destinations!

About the location

BURFORD

Swinbrook 3.3 miles; Little Barrington 3.4 miles; Minster Lovell 6.1 miles.

Burford is possibly one of, if not THE most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!

With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.
