  • "Just returned from a wonderful week at Honeystone Cottage."

    From the moment we arrived we felt at home. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather and spent most of our time outdoors in the very big south facing garden. The house is extremely comfortable with very tasteful interiors and furnishings. Withington and the surrounding area is just perfect with wonderful villages and great pubs/restaurants within easy reach. We are definitely planning a return stay.

  • "What a wonderful place to stay, the photos don’t do it justice and what a beautiful part of the country."

    You really are in the Cotswolds, it was stunning. The house was spotless and we were even greeted with some local bread and eggs. We didn’t get to the local pub but managed to get to have a pint or two at some charming villages close by.

The annual 2000 Trees music festival is held just north of the village and neighbouring Chedworth boasts one of the largest Roman villas in the UK, now owned by the National Trust and is a popular attraction for all ages.

Region Information

Note: Regrettably, Honeystone Cottage does not accept children under the age of eight years. Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. Note: The garden is not enclosed, and there is an unfenced pond and a stream to the rear so dogs and children over eight will need to be supervised outside at all times. Note: The owner requires that you use instant lighting fire logs rather than seasoned logs for the woodburning stove. Note: The property is accessed via three wide steps which lead down towards the front door, which can become slippery when wet and so guests should be careful when approaching the property. Note: There is an original hayloft staircase outside the back door however please note that there is no handrail or safety barrier and so climbing the stairs is not recommended due to the drop between levels. Note: The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk. Note: Honeystone Cottage does not accept hen, stag or similar parties; if you would like to enquire as a same sex group, please contact us.
