  • "Forgot to mention on leaving that the mattress in the bedroom may need to be replaced as it sinks down on one side."

    We did turn it over but it was the same the other side.

    Dear Tracey, Thank you for your feedback regrading the mattress. We'll get on to it! Best wishes Robert and Charlie Property Owner

  • "Homestead Cottage was simply lovely and the owners Foss and Charlie were friendly and helpful."

    Everything we needed was available inside the cottage and the bottle of proseco was very welcome on arrival. The position of the cottage in Halford was very good for exploring the area. It was central to everywhere we wanted to see. The pub across the road was welcoming and had a great range of food and drink. Would definitely recommend this holiday cottage to anyone wishing for a beautiful relaxing holiday with easy access to the lovely area. Thank you to the owners for their hard work.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. It's really lovely to know we're getting things right. We hope you will come and stay with us again. Best wishes Charlie and Foss Property Owner

  • "Homestead Cottage is a very nice and clean cottage, unfortunatley there was not welcome pack of Bread or Milk on arrival just to get us started after a long journey, plus it isn't stated in the listing that the owner has control of the central Heating, the listing just states it is oil fired central Heating, we feel that should be made clear to the customer renting the cottage as you cant dictate when you are going to be cold or when you require the heating on."

    Thank you for your feedback which we have noted. We will rethink our welcome pack. With regard to the heating, this is something that is difficult to change, but we note your comments. We do ensure that the heating is on throughout the day from 7am to 11pm and there is a thermostat available in the cottage for guests to alter the temperature. There is also an electric fire downstairs for additional heating. I will ask Sykes to make this more clear in the description. We try to make ourselves available to our guests at all times if they need to contact us about any problems they may encounter and we are happy to help. Property Owner

  • "Excellent cottage."

    Perfect location for visiting Cotswolds as only 8 miles from both Moreton-in Marsh and Stratford. Garage only 2 mins walk has newspapers and essentials. Supermarkets were a short journey away. Cottage was warm and cosy. Bed and sofas were comfortable and the overall fixtures and fittings were good quality. Rooms, especially bathroom was a lot larger than expected and the kitchen area was sufficient for cooking meals. Sitting out area would be pleasant in the warmer months although it would not get the afternoon sun. Parking was not an issue and we were able to unload and load outside the door of the cottage. The owners were available if needed (we didn't) and were kind enough to leave a bottle of water outside the door when the water company turned off the water unexpectedly. Would highly recommend and revisit.

    We spoke to owner about cooker which we found difficult to use and also a recommendation regarding extra hand rail on stairs

    Thank you for your comments. We realised a few people had trouble with the oven which has now been replaced. We’re working on the extra handrail. Kind regards Robert and Charlotte Property Owner

    The bathroom was beautiful and huge bath perfect to soak after long days out. We visited 5 NationalTrust properties all within 10-15miles from cottage and also Blenheim Palace. Some great local takeaways and pub across is great for food as well. Overall great stay and would love to return.
