  • "My family had a brilliant stay at Carps Rise , it’s a beautiful home and everything we could have wished for."

    We stayed for the October half term. Had great days out to Cotswolds wildlife park , and surrounding areas. Explored the lower mill estate and used all the facilities. 5 star accommodation with everything you need.

  • "The house was perfect for our needs, comfortable, well equipped and clean."

    The complex was good, especially the heated outdoor swimming pool. The only disappointment, which we should have researched beforehand, was that some of leisure facilities in the area had closed in September, in particular the Cotswold Water Park and beach area.

  • "We had such a great stay!"

    The house was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We had everything we needed to cook, although we could have done with an extra frying pan and we had a bit of difficulty opening the freezer drawers as it could do with defrosting. Checking in was easy and communication good. The house was a short walk from the outside pool (which was so warm!) and the Activity Hub. We loved the village itself and had some lovely walks, lots of swimming, fishing and hired a katakanu. We will definitely be back!

  • "The cottage is absolutely lovely, in a perfect location and decorated beautifully."

    The owners were really accommodating with arrival times and they had left some really nice treats on the table as a welcome gift. The notes on the cottage and the surrounding area were really helpful. Loved the outdoor pool...even in December, the little shop and biking around the area was really special. We had a wonderful time and would love to go again. 10 out of 10.
