  • "The cottage is ideally positioned very close to the centre of Nailsworth, making it easily accessable for everything you could need."

    It's extremely well equiped, very clean and comfortable, and a credit to the owners and maintenance staff. We had a great time staying there and would happliy return again.

  • "We have always had good cottages through Sykes but in terms of decor, tastefully decorated with comfortable and attractive looking, furniture, well equipped kitchen, etc."

    , this was definitely the best we have had. It was excellent in all respects, a real home from home and I could happily have lived there. That was before factoring in the location.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with such lovely feedback. Batemans really is a lovely property! We hope that we can welcome you again one day soon! Best wishes, Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, well -equipped."

    The outside space had a canopy which meant we were able to sit out as the weather though warm was often wet. The road to the cottage is narrow but that is the case with a lot of Gloucestershire roads and villages, and parking is good. Would recommend Bath ( park and ride from Landsdown) Cirencester, Slimbridge and the magnificent GLoucester Catherdral. Nailsworth is well placed for them all. And DO NOT LEAVE before sampling an Winston's ice cream from their premises on the common. :-)

    Thank you for providing this lovely feedback. We're delighted you loved the cottage and made the most of all that the Cotswolds has to offer (including the ice cream!). Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in."

    Clean, comfortable and very well - equipped. Any wee comments from previous reviews like the shortage of cereal bowls, have been dealt with. Kitchen was well enough equipped to make a Sunday roast - rare in a holiday rental. The weather wasn’t great but plenty space for four adults to relax indoors when needed. Nailsworth is a lovely wee town; we enjoyed meals at Amalfi and Egypt Mill, and is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds and surrounding area and we made use of the Park and Ride at Cam & Dursley station (about 25 minute drive away) to take train to Bath and Bristol for days out there. Would highly recommend a stay here.

    Thank you for helpful and detailed feedback. Very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and your time exploring the Cotswolds Property Owner

  • "We loved this place."

    it was really conveniently near the centre of Nailsworth, yet also very quiet. The house was comfortable, great double bedroom with a really comfortable bed. Everything nicely done. Get in was at 6pm, but the manager of the property called us to say it was ready earlier. Even the selection of books was great. And we met the neighbours, who were lovely. Complaints? Well, the kitchen knives were blunt, but I have never stayed in a cottage where they weren't. Nailsworth is a charming little town, with some great places to eat and near to all sorts of other interesting places - Stroud, Tetbury, Cirencester - as well as some great walks.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. So pleased you found Batemans comfortable. Great you enjoyed Nailsworth and the walks. Property Owner

    Good base for exploring the Cotswolds. Housekeeper was quick to respond to any niggles however access to property is down a very narrow lane, not good for larger cars and or nervous drivers.

  • "The cottage was reasonably well appointed."

    Lovely fresh bedding thank you. Wasn’t at all sure bar of soap stuck to the wall in Covid times is at all wise ? The cottage could do with some breakfast bowls as the only ones there are tiny. I see this has been mentioned before. Sadly my car was scraped by someone within the private car park with no one leaving a note, which was a shame. All of this said, the cottage is well and centrally positioned in Nailsworth and was clean. Thank you

    Thank you very much for this feedback. We have contacted the owner in order to ask for a potential addition of larger cereal bowls. In addition, we are delighted to hear that you still enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We did enjoy our stay at Bateman's, but had a few issues with the cottage."

    Firstly though....the good bits: the beds are very comfy! I would say the mattresses were medium to firm. The cottage is very peaceful. We found it relaxing. It is within waking disance of shops and we liked Nailsworth as a base for the week. Now the issues we had: the kitchen, despite having all the white goods, is poorly designed and small. You have to keep moving the bin and shutting the door to get into the fridge/freezer. It got very annoying. There was hardly any empty cupboard space for our provisions either. And the kitchen was not that well equipped. Only one cereal bowl between the four of us but 16 soup dishes! The only tin opener was bent and it would not work very well. The single bedroom has nowhere for clothes! One very small bedside table. No hanging space and not even a chest of drawers, though there was space enough for a small one. Those were really the only negatives for us. We did have a bit of trouble getting the tumble dryer to work at first, but Alison and Howard, the caretakers, were very helpful and got it going. We noted in the information sheet that was left for us that they wanted us to take our rubbish with us on leaving. Never had that in any other cottage we have rented. We put our rubbish out on bin day, but the bin men never took it. Alison very kindly said not to worry and that all our rubbish would be dealt with if we bagged it up. On the whole, we had a good week though. Lots of places to see. I will not miss that kitchen or the stairs though!

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Batemans. We value all feedback provided by guests and i will forward your comments onto the owner to review. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "It was a shame that the dishwasher wasn't working, the housekeeper was fantastic though and did try to sort it out."

    I did want to stay for 1 extra night, but with sykes being greedy, I couldn't afford to stay. They came out with some lame excuse that we would have been booking in to a new week, even though I knew that the cottage was vacant for 2 nights. Extremely rude customer services whom was not willing to help.

    We are happy to hear we tried to resolve your issues. Sorry you didn't experience good customer service, we always aim to deliver excellent customer services to all our guests. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was perfectly right for our situation accommodating two couples and an elderly parent for a family weeding nearby - sounds odd but having 3 toilets was a godsend whilst everyone got ready in their finery."

    The location, although on edge of the town, was very quite but then again you'd need to be hardy folk to have been out in the pouring rain!!!! Access from parking spaces into cottage was also excellent for our 92 year old mother. Only improvement we could see was perhaps a lighter set of saucepans (creuset are very heavy) and a spatula :) Bonus was as no-one else coming in after us we were able to make our departure a little later on last morning, many thanks Alison and Karen - very welcome after arriving back from reception at 1.30 in morning and having then a 5 hour drive later that same day back to north Norfolk. Happy to recommend.

    One would usually be provided with outdoor refuse facilities, or at least be able to leave tied bags by the door for the cleaners to remove. It’s not easy to find a recycling depot and no clear directions are given.
