  • "Lovely cottage."

    Great location Only reservations are the lack of some information: 1. WIFI code not obviously accessible. 2. Lack of manual for microwave - had to guess how to use it. 3. Not clear how to regulate the central heating. An information sheet giving these details would have been helpful and other information about nearest petrol stations, Post Office etc.

  • "We were a litttle cold in the evenings as the blow heater in the fire didn't give out much heat but otherwise perfect."

  • "A comfortable cottage in a nice location on the village edge."

    Perfect for my time spent working in the area as a solo traveller it was cosy, very clean and generally comfortable. If I had been on holiday with a significant other I may have found the adjoining nature of the properties a little invasive (the description does not make it clear that only a door separates you from the larger chapel house holiday rental next door, and there is no sound proofing to minimise noise). The described 'communal' garden is actually the garden of the larger house which felt uncomfortable and awkward to use and it isn't clear from the signage whether the garden is all communal or just a small area of it. Kitchen reasonably well stocked with nice extras like a cafetière and gin glasses, although missing the usual tea/coffee/sugar/vegetable oil that most holiday cottages provide as standard and strangely no cupboard space for own food which was a little challenging! The hobs were difficult to use, in the end I resorted to the microwave instead. The wifi was also a bit hit and miss and repeatedly dropped out, each time needing the owner to reset from the adjoining house as you don't have your own router to reset it yourself which was a bit of a pain. Contact with the owner was efficient at all times which was great, although not overly friendly despite the fact that they live opposite and share a driveway. Instructions for when to take the bins out would have been helpful, as would a hoover to allow for better cleaning up after myself (only a broom provided). Overall a good stay though and I would definitely stay again if I was working in the area!

  • "We had a lovely stay over Christmas at Chapel Cottage, whilst visiting my parents who live nearby."

    The cottage was clean and cosy. The Christmas tree and candles were a nice touch that made our stay feel festive, away from home. We were provided with a travel cot and high chair for our baby that made our stay much easier. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we will be staying again in the future. Grant, Pri and baby.

  • "Property has a small kitchen - don't plan to do much food preparation."

    The stairs to the bedroom are unsuitable for anyone with walking issues. There is no real outside space except for a small cast iron table and 2 chairs. The local area certainly isn't Cotswolds (as you would imagine it) and is quite urban. The access road to the cottage, funnily enough called The Street, is made difficult to navigate by the cars that are parked all the way along. Other than those fairly minor points, it was a good base for Cotswolds exploration although we would definitely go for a more "Cotswolds area" next time we stay.

  • "Beautiful cottage, home comforts, lovely hosts, close by, but not intrusive, would happily stay again, on the downside it needs less crockery and space to put food."

    Would’ve like information of things to do in the area. Village locality, pub very close but not fully functioning when we stayed, lovely farm shop with fresh milk and cheese. Beautiful area loved walking and sight seeing a lovely we’ll earned rest in a lovely cottage in a beautiful area.

  • "Lovely cottage, and it's set back from the road so you have some privacy, though unfortunately because of the weather we didn't have a chance to use the outdoor furniture."

    The cottage was spacious for two people, and kitted out with everything you'd expect. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and we particularly appreciated the space to store our bicycles. It was a splendid base to explore the lovely local area from.
