  • "Great house, plenty of space, ideal for a family."

    Secure garden, great for our dog. Well equipped kitchen for self catering. Bedding and towels excellent quality. Only criticism/observation :- more than a weeks worth of dust on skirting and ledges, also the ovens hadn’t been cleaned out. However none of that bothered us, the property and area was perfect for our much needed family get together. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback. We can confirm we have employed a new cleaning company to do the change over, due to the feedback we have received from other guests as well. We are so pleased you enjoyed you stay at Rosemead and we hope you may consider coming back in the future. Best regards Property Owner

  • "Excellent. Thought the place was great."

    Lovely and warm. About the only thing I could say was that maybe could do with a king size quilt on the double bed instead of double quilt. This is our 2nd visit in 3 months. So we definitely like it. Great location right in the middle of morten-in-marsh.

    Also, in our opinion, very generous goodies left, including mulled wine, xmas cake and prosecco! Thank you. We throughly enjoyed our pre-Christmas stay and highly recommend.

  • "Extremely warm and comfortable cottage to a high standard."

    The TV in kitchen/diner a welcome addition. Great location, quiet but a stone's throw to centre. Would certainly recommend.

  • "The house was in a great location and had plenty of space."

    The kitchen was well-equipped and the shower in the bathroom was brilliant. Having a bath and a shower was also great for a family property. However, unfortunately, the house was not very clean. There were cobwebs and spiders in all bedrooms and the carpet in the lounge contained lots of dog hair and looked as though it hadn’t been hoovered. The underside of the cushions on the corner sofa in the open-plan living space was also covered in dog hairs and food crumbs. When we attempted to clean them ourselves, we realised that the vacuum had no suction whatsoever, which is probably part of the problem. The beds were also extremely uncomfortable. After the first awful night’s sleep in the zip snd link bed, where I felt like I was rolling out of bed all night, we flipped the mattress which helped a little but they were still extremely soft and lacked any support. The mattress in the master bedroom was similar and extremely stained. Overall, the house was comfortable but at that price and in the current Covid climate especially, I would expect a much better state of cleanliness.

    Dear Mrs Eley, I am so sorry for the stat of the cottage, we hire a company to do the change overs for us, and we do the garden, which enables us to check the cleanliness, but unfortunately we were away ourselves that weekend so we were not able to do the checks. We passed on your remarks to them and complained. We have since your stay booked out the cottage for ourselves to do some maintenance and cleaned the sofs ourselves as they were appalling. The hoover has been replaced. We will look at replacing the matresses in the future. Property Owner

  • "A beautiful comfy home in a very quiet cul de sac location, within easy walking distance to the town centre which offers an array of shops, pubs and restaurants."

    We were welcomed to a tray of goodies, including tea, coffee, milk, cake & Prosecco Information guide on property and local amenities can be found in folder on table in the hall way. This really is a home from home cottage. Our party consisted of 4 adults and a westie dog,, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the property. The stunning high tech modern open plan kitchen was very well equipped, all cleaning products provided as well as - tea towels, wul, dishwasher tablets and washing power, so no need to bring. Large dinning table and chairs, L-shaped sofa. Bio folding doors leading onto a good size garden. Two good size double bedrooms and a single, all towels were provided and plenty of storage space although pictures do not show. A lovely size lounge with ample seating to snuggle up after a long day out. The property does have a downstairs toilet and very handy for larger groups. The garden does back onto a railway line - the noise did not affect us in any way and to be honest was nice to hear the trains come through as in such a quiet location. This cottage is a great base to explore the surrounding area, we would highly recommend and we would definitely come back. Would like to make a suggestion - A TV in the open plan living space would of been an added bonus as we spent most of our time in this area.

    Dear Mrs Lowther, Thank you for your kind compliments, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have installed a Smart TV on a swivel bracket in the open plan living space, so can be viewed from sofa, dining or kitchen area. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Rosemead proved to be an excellent base for exploring the Cotswolds."

    Five of us stayed in the cottage (4 adults and a teenager) and were very comfortable as there was plenty of room for all of us. The garden was lovely and it was great to be able to open the doors to the garden on a warm day. Moreton-in-marsh is a lovely town and there are plenty of options for eating out I can recommend the Redesdale Arms and the Siam Kitchen. We agreed that would all stay there again if we returned to the area.

  • "A clean and quiet house, with easy access to the pubs and restaurants in the village."

    We enjoyed our stay. It was exceptionally hot weather when we visited and had to get a couple of electric fans from the supermarket to deal with the heat. The bathroom and downstairs toilet could do with a latch to lock from the in side.

  • "The description of this property was good however I feel a few points could be added for this property to stand out more."

    The property is in a quiet cul-de-sac. On arrival the property was tidy, all cleaning equipment, sprays, soap, tea towles, oven gloves & toilet roll, were included. We were advised to bring all this with us however were not needed. We were welcomed with a tray of goodies, bottle of prosecco cake, coffee, tea & milk. The property is well equipped with modern interior. The kitchen was high spec with an extention with a large dining table & L shaped sofa. Bifolding doors lead out to enclosed garden with outside table & chairs. We took a stair gate with us which we put on the kitchen doorway to ensure our dog did not have the roam of the house. As we spent most of our time in this area, a TV on the wall would of been an added bonus. There was a downstairs WC which should be added to the description, ideal for larger families staying. After reading a previous review, we were worried about the noise from the trains which pass the back garden. This did not bother us at all. The noise was minimal as not a main rail line and not high speed trains passing. The first & last train of the day did not disturb our sleep. The property is 5mins walking distance to the village. Only faults I could point out - there is no smart TV, so take a TV guide. I would recommend having a stair gate at the property. The recycling & rubbish bins were out of sight however overflowing already on arrival. The garden is large enough to include a hot tub which would have been nice, we have had in previous staycations for the price we paid. This property is a great base for visiting surrounding villages. We would stay again.

    Dear Mrs Leddington, Thank you for your positive feedback, which some details we will update on the property description. We have added a Smart TV into the open plan kitchen and purchased a stair gate which guests can use if they want to. The bins are collected fortnightly on a Monday, so unfortunately they may be full on a Saturday arrival, which we are unable to do anything about. Property Owner

  • "There are two things which require attention in the property The hot water tap on the basin in the bathroom cannot be regulated and the cistern in the ground floor toilet does not always cut off."

    On one occasion this caused flooding in the room and hall We were warned about the proximity of the railway, which didn't bother us at all, but nothing was said about the totally disfunctional family next door who scream at each other from day break to mid night and beyond.I feel this may cause real problems with future tenants.

    The cottage itself was so well equipped and like a home away from home. The cottage was spotless and the garden was a really relaxing place to sit, on the lovely sunny evenings we had. The large open plan kitchen was stunning and a lovely place for us to come together as a family. We would definitely return to this cottage. Thank you.
