  • "It was great for me, my grandchildren and dog."

    Not too precious but very comfortable. Plenty of space inside and out, swimming pool was bracing but we still used it. Lovely walks too. I hope to return.

  • "Lovely cottage and farm."

    Owner was lovely and very informative and helpful. Beautiful peaceful setting. Complimenting wine , biscuits and milk on arrival was a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend

  • "The views are breath taking."

    The owner is not intrusive and she's lovely. The pool is big and warm when the sun is out. Perfect for walks with the dog and large garden (bear in mind it is open). It is only a few miles from Gloucester so not too out of the way. Supermarkets and Gloucester Quay within 10 minutes. The rooms are spacious. A chest of drawers would be really helpful in the second double. We really did live out of the suitcase. The property description states there is a bath. There isn't. Not a major biggie but we only have a walk-in shower and was looking forward to it. The place does feel like it could do with a really good clean. Downstairs toilet seat is loose. The small fridge in the kitchen doesn't close properly as the seal has worn. I did advise the owner. But other people have mentioned it in the comments as well some time ago. The internet and phone signals are poor. Would I go back? Yes, but not in the high season, I don't feel the property reflects the price. However, if you don't care about the said issues, it is a beautiful area and the owner's friendliness really did make the holiday.

    (The good bus service gave us a break from driving too). The cottage was homely and clean with countryside views, yes it has creaky floors but it's an old building. The pool was fantastic.

    The swimming pool would be great in the summer but sadly our visit was too early for the waters to get warm enough!

    Absolutely awful in my opinion and I would not recommend this to my friends.

    views are amazing and hosting excellent, was disappointed didn t use pool as on listing saying enjoy anytime assumed was heated which is main reason we chose it as i suffer with my joints and looked forward to going in daily to relieve pain as swimming helps me alot but apart from that was lovely holiday

  • "A lovely cottage."

    Me and my parents wanted an escape somewhere my mum (who is going through chemo) could relax but not worry about being around lots of people. The beds were comfy. The only thing I would say was missing from the kitchen was a pair of scissors, unless we completely missed them! We got some fabulous photos sitting on the swing watching the sunset. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the pool but a lovely big garden to play in.

  • "Excellent stay, nice and quiet in gorgeous countryside bordered by Churcham Church."

    House was roomy, well equipped and the pool was a revelation, unheated I expected it to be freezing but it's all over covering actually made it trap the heat of the sun inside, lovely.

  • "We stayed for four nights, but regretting not to extend our stay due to other commitment we have."

    The cottage, the swimming pool, the farm and the surrounding landscapes have exceeded our expectation and we loved everything about it. Our evening/morning walks and swims will be forever cherished. The landlord and her son lived next door to the cottage and they were beyond helpful in providing us what we need (if not found). The cottage also provided story books, table games and toys for the little ones, so time was always filled with activities and fun. Maybe I was lucky to have come in summer time, where the unheated pool always remain warm, even our little toddler enjoyed swimming there. The cottage is all about authentic traditional farm house, I loved it! but my daughter thought that a contemporary furniture would suit it more. The cottage is also close to the Gloucester Quay and its lively shopping mall, my favorite Forest of Dean where we went for cycling, laser combat and hikes.

  • "We had a great stay , the property was very well equiped, and on arrival the friendly owner had left complimentary wine ,biscuits, milk."

    The cottage was comfy and homely, a typical farm cottage just as advertised ( maybe the bed mattresses could be upgraded in the future ) but that did not impact on our enjoyment. Very big garden for the grandkids to run about in, and of course the pool, which was a massive hit. Very peaceful location with stunning views, we all came home very relaxed.

  • "Lovely home from home."

    Lovely owner, friendly and welcoming, excellent pool and good location. The house has everything you need and loads of space. Not big smiles across the board due to throws on sofa’s slip all the time making it difficult to sit for any length of time. Towels needed a wash in fabric softener to be able to use. Touch lamps in family room don’t work, they flash on and off when plugged in. Everything else spot on and none of these spoilt our enjoyment of the holiday

  • "The location is excellent, well placed for travel throughout the Cotswolds and is in a tranquil farm setting."

    The owner was very nice and on hand if needed. The cottage is dated and would benefit from an upgrade. However, this is a personal choice if you prefer cleaner more modern conveniences. The views are lovely and watching the sun set on an evening was very pleasant. It wasn’t the cleanest cottage or most comfortable but it did not detract from the holiday. The beds are small doubles which again is personal choice as to whether this is an issue or not. All in all, a pleasant stay, lovely location, nice setting but with a bit of TLC and money spent it could be fantastic.

  • "It was very simple and straightforward to book."

    Sykes gave me plenty of information and reminders. The cottage was really great. It's on a working farm and we really enjoyed finding out about how they farm and meeting a calf born whilst we were there. It's a beautiful area in Gloucestershire too. The swimming pool was great. It's covered but not heated so the water was cool but it was just like swimming in the sea or a lake and we enjoyed it. The host was on hand when we had some questions about how things worked. Our children immediately asked when we can return and we will try to next year.

  • "The house makes the perfect base for exploring the local area."

    The pool is brilliant and the scenery is idyllic. If you’re tall you’ll need to remember to duck on the way in… low ceilings and doorways throughout. The bedrooms are bright and airy and beds and bedding very comfortable. The bathroom upstairs does have a strange smell and feels like it could do with a deep clean, but it was useable. We enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for feedback, we have investigated the smell you have mentioned and it appears unfortunately due to the hot weather and low winds this smell was caused by the local farms stores being heated up. We are glad this didn't impact your holiday and you still enjoyed your time at our property. Property Owner

This spacious holiday accommodation is perfect for bringing friends and families alike to explore this peaceful part of the countryside with the excitement of the city resting a short distance away.

The character of the farmhouse is continued into the sitting room, where you can light up the open fire before you sink into the plush leather sofa and tune into the Smart TV.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, head up the staircase to find three well-appointed bedrooms, comprising of a family bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, a double bedroom and a single bedroom, together sleeping six people and served by a family bathroom.

Continuing to impress is the spacious garden lawn and a patio area, providing table and chairs so that you can enjoy a glass of something chilled, whilst something sizzles on the barbecue.

At the end of the garden is a large pool with a shelter, promising fun-filled hours, whatever the weather.
