  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the Cow Shed."

    No cows but a few sheep in the adjacent field. Looks like a lot of attention to detail on the renovation resulting in well laid out and spacious accommodation on a lovely tranquil plot next to the owners’ house. Met Graham (the owner) and Tia (the dog) who were both very friendly. Would definitely recommend for a visit to the Cotswolds.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Cow Shed. It's so lovely to get comments such as yours, to show how much you have enjoyed your stay with us. The Owner has put a lot of attention to details into the property, for guest's to enjoy. We hope to welcome you back again in the future for another stay with us. Kind regards Manor Cottages.

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Cow Shed!"

    Pretty much everything was thought of for us. The milk, biscuits, tea, coffee and sugar were very thoughtful and welcomed. Our only slight niggle was that the hot water didn’t stay hot for long enough, even after a 2 hour boost. All in all, it was lovely! Lots of books available to read and some puzzles to do too. The Cow Shed was located in a lovely setting with lots of beautiful walks right on your doorstep!

    Thanks for your feedback and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for your comment regarding the hot water. It's a Combi-Boiler which gives instant hot water but has no storage capacity so "Boost" will only prolong the "ON" period but not provide a reserve of hot water. We've now re-programmed it to be "ON" 24/7 which will solve this issue for the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, very welcoming with Christmas tree and festive goodies."

    Spacious with good size TV. Steps too and from car and driveway a bit steep and not ideal for loading/ unloading the car. Lovely warm and cosy. Excellent information of the local area, places to eat, shop and visit. Owners very nice. Altogether a great spot. We will certainly return.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Cow Shed. Its wonderful to hear you had a fabulous Festive break with us and we hope to welcome you back again very soon. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic accommodation."

    Would highly recommend to anyone. Regards Alan and Trudy. Some sort of handrail down the steps would be the only improvement that we would suggest

  • "We enjoyed our stay immensely at The Cow Shed."

    The cottage was clean, well equipped & very comfortable. The property is located in the grounds of Graham & Pam's farm. We only met Pam, but she was very kind & helpful, & it was also lovely to meet their friendly Labrador, Tia. The only negative part of our stay were the steps down to the Cow Shed from the parking area. They make it very difficult for anyone with mobility issues, but there is no mention of this in the Sykes listing for the property. A big error on their part. It would be a great help if some sort of hand rail was installed from the top of the steps all the way down to the cottage itself in the future.

    Thanks for your feedback and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay despite this issue. When they listed the property, Manor Cottages' view was that the photos were sufficient to show the path and steps but we have now asked that they also add a note in the description which they have done. We are also looking at designing a handrail as you suggest. Property Owner

    The accommodation was first class and well equipped.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you had a great holiday. We are sorry to hear that position of the property was not suitable, we try and be as transparent as possible by showing photos and descriptions. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The Cow Shed is a beautiful property, we had a 2 night stay with our dog."

    It was very clean, comfortable and renovated to a high standard. I suffer with sciatica, I often return home with back ache from sitting on an uncomfortable sofa, or sleeping on a cheap mattress, that was not a problem after staying here. It really felt like a home from home. We loved looking through the picture book of the renovation work. It's a lovely touch, guests can see the work that has taken place over the past 3 years. We have already recommended this property to friends and would definitely stay again.

    Thank you for this wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Cow Shed and found it to be so comfortable! We look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "This is a superb holiday property, well equipped and very clean."

    I have just one suggestion, it should be mentioned in the description that the entrance to the property is down a steep shingled slope and steps which is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties. A handrail would make it safer. Apart from this it was perfect.

    Thank you for providing this feedback. We're glad you loved the property and thank you also for your suggestion regarding the steps and slope which we will look into. Property Owner
