  • "Beautiful house and glorious garden to enjoy in the summer sunshine."

    Kids loved finding frogs in the pond and the quirky bedroom with the loft. Wonderful farmhouse kitchen with a Rayburn - surprisingly easy to use. Super village location - a peaceful break from our busy daily lives. Thank you!

  • "Hope Cottage was a delight."

    Perfectly furnished and decorated, we thoroughly enjoyed the garden and barbecue too - lucky with the weather! Highly recommend the village pub and the community shop next door was great. We would all love to return (for longer this time). One tiny thing - the kitchen could do with a cafetiere :) (otherwise the kitchen was extremely well equipped).

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Loved everything about it. Very spacious with a nice conservatory and beautiful garden too. Mustn’t forget the luxury en-suite bathroom off the main bedroom where you can lie in the bath and gaze at the village church. A most friendly village and a warm welcome at The Coach and Horses.

  • "We highly recommend booking Hope Cottage!"

    There are many wonderful cottages in the Cotswold's to book and I ended up selecting Hope because the pictures depicted old world charm, comfort, space and walking distance to a pub. We have never rented in the Cotswold's before and I was uncertain where exactly to stay. The village of Longborough was perfect and the cottage provided us with all we required and then some. Communication was excellent, parking and entering the cottage was easy. We were welcomed with a few items that were greatly appreciated! I was excited to invite some family to visit and stay with us throughout the week. We had great weather and all enjoyed a BBQ and walk around the village. We visited the pub numerous times with family and always felt welcomed and a part of the village. The comfort & space that the cottage provides is perfect! The hiking from Longborough is fantastic; short & long hikes. It is also a very easy drive to Stow, Bourton-on-the-Water & Slaughters which a great places to visit. We did enjoy a day of village hopping and always loved getting back to Hope Cottage - our home away from home for the week. You will not be disappointed - book!

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage."

    The house is beautiful , with the charm of the old and the comfort of a modern home. Everything was perfect: the very comprehensive arrival instructions, the beautiful location nearby many lovely villages, the cleanliness, the very complete equipment of the house. The heating worked perfectly well which was fortunate in this chilly April weather. So did all the installations. The children loved the bedroom in the attic, and the bed of the master bedroom is very comfortable. The village shop next door is charming and deserves a visit but don't count too much on it if you have a big hunger! We would definitely stay there if we go back in this area.

  • "Hope Cottage is a absolutely lovely place."

    We loved it there. Prefect for driving around to other villages, and for walks. We went on the recommended walk, which was beautiful, with added bonus of a guided tour of a Mogul palace! The village shop was right next door, they even had logs for the fire place. The village pub is a few meters up the road. Prefect Cotswolds experience!
