  • "Thank you It was very well equipped and comfortable."

    There are a some of safety issues that I think need attention: There needs to be bannister on the left hand side of the main stairs to first and second floors and at least one bannister to the 5/6 stairs to the bedroom on the first floor. Very dodgy without anything to hold onto, especially at night when having to use the toilet. There was no anti slip mat in the shower and no bath mat for the floor.

  • "We had a lovely short break at Primrose Cottage - it was well equipped, clean and comfortable and the location is great for exploring what the beautiful surrounding area has to offer."

    Beds are super comfy and the shower is great! A couple of small drawbacks - the living room is small and the seating (which only really seats four comfortably) could be more comfortable. The two attic rooms didn’t have blinds in the dormer windows - a bit of a problem in the summer unless you’re happy waking up very early!

  • "The property is well situated for the lovely walks in Winchcombe."

    However, it's not the most comfortable cottage we've stayed in. First, the positive things. The beds are comfortable and there is good water pressure. The kitchen is well-lit and mostly had the things we needed. There were several things that made it a less than ideal cottage though. Firstly, the top two bedrooms have large velux windows directly over the beds measuring perhaps 3 feet by 4 feet. Unfortunately, there aren't any blinds over these, so the rooms are flooded with bright sunlight the moment the sun rises. So, don't expect to get any sleep the moment it's dawn, which was an issue for us in the spring - and I can imagine it will only get brighter in the summer. Secondly, the two-seater sofa felt rather thin, narrow and inexpensive - certainly not amongst the more comfortable ones that we have had. We often decided to lie on the comfortable beds when reading as the thin sofa was actually a bit uncomfortable to sit on for long. In the lounge, there is also only a two-seater and two armchairs plus two floor cushion / foot stool type things. So, if you are a party of six, some of you will have to sit on floor cushion / foot stools. The house is also on a street that counts as fairly busy for a small town. We go away to a lot of cottages, so we know what life is like in small towns and villages, but in this property we were quite aware of traffic noise early in the morning (maybe 6am) when delivery vehicles were dropping off at the supermarket across the road.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in Primrose Cottage."

    The cottage is beautifully presented, so clean and thoughtfully put together. We felt instantly at home. It was lovely to be able to walk from the doorstep into the countryside, to a fabulous cafe, a cracking pub, a bakery/butcher/shop or even a castle. What a great place you have - a perfect spot for people to visit. We wished we could have stayed longer but hope to return soon. Take note of the mention of the steep stairs in the house. It was something I was glad we were aware of. If you are visiting with a young family (and it would be a lovely stay) a stairgate would give you piece of mind. Our children loved having their own floor at the top of the house ❤️ Thanks again Primrose Cottage! We loved staying!

The bustling Fairtrade town of Winchcombe, a conservation site, lies above the River Isbourne, midway between Cheltenham and Broadway. Visitors can sample a mouthwatering array of local produce in the town's restaurants, wine bars, tea shops and deli's, or stroll around the eclectic range of local shops, all located along the three main streets, which remain full of character with their honey coloured stone and timbered exterior. The town also plays host to music and arts festivals, country shows and farmers’ markets. Guided walks around the town are on offer throughout the summer months, while Winchcombe lies on the intersection of the Cotswold Way, Gloucestershire Way, Warden's Way and Windrush Way, providing ample walking to suit all abilities. The quintessential English village of Broadway is just a short drive away and offers individual shops and boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and hotels, including the world-renowned Lygon Arms, popular for centuries and now offering spa facilities. The regency spa town of Cheltenham boasts beautiful Georgian architecture and a delightful range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions, including the famous racecourse. Many unspoilt Cotswold towns and villages lie to the east, whilst to the west is the waterfront city of Gloucester and the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean. The beautiful World Heritage city of Bath, Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon, and Warwick, with its magnificent castle, are all within an hour’s drive.
