  • "We had a wonderful week in the cottage which is accessed by a no through road so there is no traffic passing."

    I loved the peace and quiet and the beautiful walks that can be done straight from the door, including up into the woods which were full of wood anenomes flowering. The owners who live next door are very kind and genuine people. There is a good co-op shop just a few minutes walk away in the village. I did all my own cooking and was impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was. My daughter was revising for exams. It is worth noting that whilst there is no Wi-Fi at the property the mobile reception was very good and she was able to access everything she needed using data on her phone. We enjoyed local walks with great views of the Severn estuary, visiting Stroud and its surrounding villages and generally enjoying the tranquility of the area.

  • "Lovely cottage and ideal for our needs."

    Very friendly welcome from the owner who lives next door. Great location for walking, or driving to nearby attractions, such as the Westonbirt Arboretum, Tetbury and Stroud. Good local takeaway, who delivery, however both local pubs weren't doing food, although this could be due to staffing issues, as a result of the pandemic.

  • "My children and I had such a lovely holiday in this idyllic cottage!"

    The owner was so kind and welcoming and the cottage was lovely and clean and welcoming! I cannot recommend this highly enough! The location was fab with great access to walks locally with very lush scenery! My son and I enjoyed playing football in the green and in the playground! Everyone in the village was so friendly! The only thing that bothered the children was no WiFi and in this day of having to book everything before you go it would be handy! That is a ridiculously small thing…I just bought more data! I definitely recommend this cottage as an ideal get away and break from it all! Thank you!

  • "The host was friendly and helpful and the accommodation was clean and spacious."

    We got around the issue of having no wifi by using mobile data, but maybe it would be good to state clearly on the listing that there is no wifi at the property.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage set on the outskirts of King's Stanley in a quiet spot: all was clean and comfortable."

    We could hear owls and watched bats flit around the light at night and watch long horned cattle in the field outside. There is a pleasant garden to the front of the cottage that was filled with flowers. The cottage is very well placed for many attractions such as Westonbirt Arboretum and Slimbridge wetland Centre and is a great base for walking. Being a genuinely old cottage it has low beams that you can hit your head on and the stairs are a bit creaky. The third bedroom is up two flights of steep steps so not for the frail but we found it suited us fine. It now has a small freezer in the kitchen but there is no WiFi. It was good to get away from all the gloom and doom and enjoy some lovely walks and site seeing. Our host, Mrs Webb, was very friendly.

  • "It was a fantastic cottage, totally enjoyed the holiday and loved the cottage."

    A beautiful place with lots of character it exceeded our expectations and we're definitely planning to return. Can't compliment the cottage enough nor the friendly owners who went out of their way to help and ensure our holiday was the best it could be. Really recommend Westcroft, the cottage is an absolute joy. We hated leaving it!

  • "Mrs Webb was very welcoming, friendly and helpful."

    was really great to have some local walks detailed in the cottage but would have been even better to have some that started directly from the cottage. Cottage was fabulous and our children loved it. Would love to go back again.

    The owner lived next door but was very discreet. She was very helpful in getting us to know the local area. Fresh eggs were delivered on one day which was very welcome. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely recommend this property.
