  • "Wonderful!! We had a lovely visit, thankyou very much xx"

  • "Lovely cosy home from home, with plenty of shops and places to eat on the doorstep."

    We especially loved the puds from the pudding shop! And a great butchers at Clive’s Fruit Farm. We wouldn’t usually stay somewhere without private parking however the on street parking and nearby free car park were always available when we needed them so caused no issues. The only negative…. And it’s a tiny little one! Is that we found the beds a little too soft (but that’s just personal preference). Everything else was so homely and comfortable it didn’t spoil our stay. We can certainly recommend a stay here, don’t hesitate to book.

  • "An excellent property."

    All equipment in the cottage was excellent quality. The lounge is huge but very cosy and has lovely comfy sofas. A lovely outside space for a coffee in the morning. We arrived in the middle of a heat wave and asked if they had some fans which they didn't have but the very next day we were presented with two fans so we were very grateful. Lovely owner lovely property would thoroughly recommend.

    Thank you so much for this lovely review. I’m really glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best , Rae Property Owner

    The cottage was beautifully presented and the owners (next door) were extremely helpful. They even provided storage for our bikes in their shed. Parking was easy. Upton provided easy access to places nearby that we wanted to visit. Highly recommended.

    The kitchen is modern and well equipped, but the living room was our favourite space to relax together. It is a property of great character and comfort and was an ideal base for exploring the area. We would love to return for a longer stay next time!

  • "Rae and Darrel have done an excellent job of the renovations at Cuckoo Cottages and are brilliant hosts and were happy to be contacted at any time."

    One minor problem with the shower was fixed immediately. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and has been well equipped. The situation, near the centre of town, is ideal. There is some traffic noise at the front in the dining room but the main sitting room is at the rear and is quiet. it was nice to have the terraced area to sit out on. Parking was not an issue for us as we off loaded from the spaces opposite the house. The free car park is only a couple of minutes away and had plenty of spaces. We would thoroughly recommend this for stays in Upton and for exploring the area.

    Thanks so much Phil and Lou for leaving this kind feedback. It's lovely to know that our guests enjoyed their stay. Thanks again, Rae Property Owner

    We are a family of 5 and there was plenty of space for us all and everything we needed. Rae and Darrell were on hand when we needed some advice. There were even toys provided that our daughter loved playing with. We would definitely recommend staying here and will consider it for future holidays for us.

  • "Absolute gem of a property which I could happily live in."

    Beautifully decorated, well thought out and comfortable. Even better than it looked on the photos. Lovely friendly owners Rae and Daryl who are on hand next door in the B & B if needed. The thing that made us delay in booking was the parking situation but it really wasn’t a problem. On street parking 6pm til 9am or an hour 8am til 6pm and free car park 100 yds up the road (which we used every day) Lovely quaint and friendly town with a great selection of pubs and takeaways. Thank you Rae and Daryl. We highly recommend this beautiful cottage.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to send it. It’s so good to hear that the cottage was everything you hoped it would be. Nice to meet you both and thank you again. Rae. Property Owner

    Although in a main street, very quiet at night. A minutes walk from Co-op and Henry's cafe and bookshop. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Fantastic newly renovated grade II cottage in a great location for days out to South Wales and The Cotswolds."

    Some ceilings are low, which you would expect for a cottage and as it is on the main road there is some road noise at the front of the property where the main bedroom is located. However as it is on the main road through the town, pubs, restaurants, shops and the river are all just a short stroll away. We had a problem with the central heating during our stay and the owners were very responsive in dealing with this, as they own the B&B next door. All in all the cottage is lovely and we hope to return at some point in the future.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback Helen. Very much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage within walking distance of a number of bars and coffee shops."

    It was the perfect setting for New Year’s Eve ( which is what we wanted ) . The cottage is exceptionally clean and well equipped with a cosy feeling and despite being on quite a busy road you can’t hear the traffic when in the lounge with its snuggly sofas. The owners were lovely and only next door if we needed anything, overall a perfect stay to bring in the new year. The locals are really friendly, we spent New Year’s Eve at a lovely tapas bar called the boat house which we would highly recommend.

    Apologies for the delay in responding Claire but I just wanted to say thanks very much for your kind review. Property Owner
