  • "Lovely stay in this property - a beautiful cosy, clean, home and in an excellent location near the Wild Rabbit."

    We had no issues with the house at all (other than the small inconvenience that we had to go and buy logs for the fire when it said they were included, but building a fire in August is not the norm). However, for the cost of the house parking was unsatisfactory. We had been told pre-arrival and in the arrival pack about the one car parking space and were very diligent to move our second car to the road a few minutes walk away. On our second evening we returned to a large 4x4 parked in our allocated space which remained there for the ENTIRE stay. We eventually found out it was a guest of no 10 when they eventually left days later, but they were entirely unapologetic that they had parked in our space the whole weekend (despite it being obvious they knew it was our space) and forced us to park on the main road and walk up to the house in the pouring rain for the duration. This is not the fault of the lovely property owners, but we are unable to recommend this property to friends with children/mobility issues etc as a result. This particular neighbour was not courteous and definitely knew they were taking our space which is not the friendly Cotswolds environment we are used to on our many visits. Such a shame, as other than that the experience was wonderful.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are very sorry that you had issues parking. We have been in contact with the owner of the other property in order to prevent this happening again. In the event that you experience issues such as this, do let us and know and we will try to resolve things during your stay. We are very glad that you were pleased with the property and location and hope you were able to enjoy your stay. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    I am sure we will return. Our only issue was that we had to remove our roof box to park at the property. Due to the height restricted entrance.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at 12 Manor Farm Close."

    The cottage is beautifully designed and is located in the stunning village of Kingham. The property to us was perfect expect for a couple of things. We requested the high chair, but despite calling customer service who directed us to the garage (which we didn’t have a key for) no one could locate it so we managed without it. Also, as we had a roof box fitted on the car, on arrival, we realised that we could not fit under the two archways going through to the property. This made unloading challenging but we managed. Details of the height restrictions would have been useful on the property description. Overall, wonderful stay in the prettiest of locations.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we are sorry the high chair could not be located for your stay and will look into adding the height restrictions for the archway (although we don't believe this has been as issue before). We're so pleased to hear you had an enjoyable stay in this delightful location. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at this cottage."

    Kingham was the perfect location and acted as a good base to visit all the surrounding towns and villages. It has a great pub just a short walk away, which we visited daily to relax in front of an open fire. We travelled with our 6month old baby and the open plan layout suited us perfectly. A lovely cottage with plenty of space for 4 adults. Very tidy and clean, the living room rug could do with a clean/replacing as appeared quite mud stained. Luckily I brought with us a foam mat for our baby to play/crawl about on. Peaceful place to stay with very comfortable beds. I thought parking may be a slight issue but it was no issue parking just outside the drive on a very quiet road. We probably overpacked but without a washing machine with a 6month old, it was a bit challenging but didn’t affect our stay. I read previous reviews about no washing machine so we were aware there wouldn’t be one before we travelled. Overall a lovely stay!

    Thank you for your detailed feedback, we appreciate your comments. So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at 12 Manor Farm Close and hope to welcome you back. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

    The only reason we wouldn’t stay again is that we often stay longer than a week and would need a washing machine.

  • "Lovely cottage tastefully decorated."

    However for us we found the sofas uncomfortable and our bed sunk in the middle. The property was not very clean either which really surprised us and the rug in the lounge was dirty. Apart from this we enjoyed our stay with every amenity we needed. The welcome Christmas hamper was a lovely touch.

    Many thanks for your feedback. And pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear that the cleanliness was not up to our usual standards and this has been addressed with the housekeeping team. We will check the sofas and the beds and action anything that is required for future guests. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay; very clean and well thought out house."

    Loved the interiors and want to use the same colour in the hallway for our home!!! It felt cosy yet practical and appreciated all of the supplies left for us; genuinely enough dishwasher tablets, soap, sponges etc for the full stay! Great location and two lovely village pubs, as well as neighbouring villages! Such a pretty place to be in the snow! Facilities were great and again well thought out. Only thing, as I know other reviews have mentioned, is a washing machine...hard to be a week away with a toddler without one! Also would have loved some Christmas decorations, but that's getting picky!!! We would definitely recommend and would love to return.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and recommendation, the owner does has wonderful taste and we are pleased that you enjoyed the thoughful touches. We understand that a washing machine is helpful with a toddler, however unfortunately there is not enough space to fit one. Kingham must have looked delightful in the snow, and we can confirm that a Christmas tree is provided closer to Christmas. We hope to welcome you back again.

    The only downside to the property is that it didn’t have a washing machine and as we stayed for 7 days it makes it really difficult when you have children staying with you, therefore we feel would be more suitable for short stays.

We're actually putting a laminated picture in the entrance area showing the parking space for no. 12. This should hopefully save any confusion in future.
