  • "The cottage is very simple and cosy."

    It had all ypu needed for a few days. The owner Jane is very helpful and welcoming. The village itself is delightful and the pub is friendly and serves good food. The only downside is the parking but the pros of the place well exceed the cons.Cannot wait to return.

  • "Gleed Cottage is a charming little cottage perfect for a family stay."

    Naunton Village is ideally located 10mins away from Bourton on Water which is very picturesque and has many places to visit with kids. Host was very welcoming and communicated promptly. Cottage itself is very old and my kids loved their big bedroom in the loft! We enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning again!

  • "Gleed Cottage was a delightful place to stay."

    Located in the quiet, peaceful village of Naunton, a stone throws away from the local pub! Neighbours are very friendly and our host Jane was very helpful and accommodating. The cherry on top of the cake was the fireplace which certainly warmed us up on a cold winter's night. Would highly recommend!

    RahulOct 2020

  • "Gleed Cottage is an absolutely beautiful cottage in the most gorgeous little hamlet."

    We loved popping by to the pub and going for lovely walks, before coming back to a roaring fire. A lovely part of the world and a lovely place to explore it from! Jayne was a fantastic host: really quick to reply to messages and very generous with the firewood, and we had lots of useful info from Character Cottages beforehand. We can’t recommend this lovely place highly enough.

    Jayne is a perfect host. She spoilt us with fresh bread, eggs and even scones. The cottage is lovely and the interior is very stylish. We couldn't have wished for any better! Naunton as a location is also very recommended, since it‘s a lot less touristy than other villages in the Cotswolds.

Cheltenham is a town in Gloucestershire and lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds and above the vale of the River Severn. It is known as 'The Western Gateway to the Cotswolds'. This edge-of-the Cotswolds spa town is hard to beat for refined elegance and Regency terraces, annual festivals, Ladies' College and racecourse. Also fortnightly farmers markets, classy shops and restaurants all surrounded by glorious countryside. The town is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. It's also known for Regency buildings, including the Pittville Pump Room, a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town. There's fine art at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium.
