  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the old bothy Heating was on when we arrived as well ..."

    Really enjoyed our stay at the old bothy Heating was on when we arrived as well as a pint of milk in the fridge and butter and bread Which was welcome as we arrived late on The one slight drawback is the parking if you have a low slung car like mine you will catch your spoilers

  • "Unfortunately our Holiday got off to a bad start."

    On arrival it became apparent that the Gas Boiler that provided all of the heating and hot water was not working which in mid February is not ideal. We contacted the Managing Agent as listed in the information pack and we spoke with a Gentleman called Sean. He was in Gloucester at the time of calling but said he would be with us in about an hour and true to his word he was. On closer inspection he said a specialist Engineer would be required so Sean called an Engineer and arranged for him to be with us the following morning at 8.30 and again true to his word the Engineer was on time and within half an hour we finally had heat and hot water. Sean also returned home on the first evening and came round with an electric Radiator for us to use so we would just like to say a big Thank You to Sean for exemplary Customer Service. Once everything was sorted we really enjoyed our stay at the Old Bothy. The Property is very well equipped and is in an idyllic location . We would definitely return in the future

  • "While the property was clean and comfortable there are a couple of things that could be improved."

    The back door key is very difficult to use and the parking needs some improvement. You cannot get on to the slabs without going on the grass and making a mess. Also I would expect at this time of year for the heating to be on on arrival. It took quite a while to get the place warmed up.

    Everything you need all wrapped up in this little place. Peaceful and relaxing.

  • "The Old Bothy is a cosy and quaint cottage, ideal for a few days getaway."

    The property is quietly situated amongst other traditional Cotswold homes but easy of access from The Fosse Way. The kitchen is very well equipped with the basics (tea, coffee, bread milk etc) being kindly supplied at the beginning of my stay. The local "Halford Bridge Inn" is very welcoming with a limited selection of "real" ales but a good looking menu -- although I did not eat there. There is good walking in the area, also with a number of attractions within approximately 30 minutes drive, Charlecote Park (NT) and Hook Norton Brewery for example. My stay was over the Christmas period and it was a very nice touch that a Christmas tree and other festive decorations had been installed. I had a most enjoyable short break.

  • "A delightful cosy hideaway in a beautiful hamlet and just a very short walk to the historic Halford Bridge Inn."

    The Bothy is perfect for a couple and is of a high standard.

  • "This was a truly lovely property with everything you could need provided."

    My only feedback would be that it wasn’t made clear in the listing exactly what was included. For example the listing said that we needed to take tea towels but these were already provided. Also, milk, butter, eggs, tea and bread were waiting for us when we arrived, although this was a welcome touch, it would have been nice to have been made aware of this beforehand instead of us bringing theses things with us. Other than that, it was a lovely property which we’ve already recommended to several friends.
