  • "We had a lovely long family weekend at the cottage."

    My granddaughter was thrilled to see a muntjac deer early one morning in what she called the fairy garden. Thank you so much for coming to our rescue when I locked us out.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you had a great stay. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Had a great stay at The Old Bakery for New Year - we were a group of 7 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 babies."

    Great village with a handy store less than 1 minutes walk away and local pubs too Spotlessly clean and everything we needed Kitchen is very well equipped Only things I would have changed - A bath mat would have been useful as the bath is very slippery for little ones An earlier check in would have been great - I understand re the cleaning, but, arriving in the dark at 5pm with 4 little ones wasn’t easy as it was a bit tricky to find the key box - I know there is a photo of its location in the information pack, but maybe sending the photo with the email when you send the key code would be helpful. We would definitely stay here again and would certainly recommend it.

  • "A fantastic base for the family before our son’s wedding!"

    The house had so much space with its two separate sitting rooms and the large kitchen and dining area and was very comfortable. Everything was very clean with lovely towels and linen provided. It was a cold, frosty weekend but it was super warm in the house. Thank you for a brilliant place to stay and to remember a great weekend.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are delighted that the house suited you so well in advance of your celebrations. Congratulations to your son and his partner! Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We had a great stay in The Old Bakery."

    The house was clean and comfortable. Given that the house sleeps 10 people we felt the kitchen would have benefited from having a few extra items - a teapot, water jug, serving dishes and enough table mats/coasters for the number of guests (we could only find 6). The main bedroom could do with a set of drawers for clothes and some more coat storage would also be helpful (the coat stand in the kitchen diner was broken). Hook Norton is a lovely village. We enjoyed trips to the Sun Inn and the brewery. The cafe in the brewery does a great breakfast!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Old Bakery and found it to be clean and comfortable. Thank you also for highlighting some issues which we have passed on to the Property Manager. We hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and well equipped, our party enjoyed it very much."

    Excellent childrens playground nearby which was enjoyed by teh kids. 1. The instructions said to bring tea towels and oven mits, which seemed a bit bizzare, which I did, but wasn't necessary as they were provided. 2. We managed to lock ourselves out by locking the kitchen door on the inside, leaving by the front door, but taking the kitchen door key. Obviously our fault, but it could have been avoided if each key set covered both doors ! Fortunately the emergency service worked well even on a Sunday evening and we were back inside in a little over an hour.

    Thank you for your feedback and we're delighted that you and your party enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for bringing to our attention to the key sets which we have noted. We're glad it was all sorted quickly for you and hope this didn't impact on your stay. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

Step into the contemporary kitchen/diner, featuring a beautiful central island, a handy dishwasher and a washing machine, where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious feasts for your loved ones, ready to enjoy over celebratory bottles of fizz in the dining room.

After dinner, why not catch the last of the day’s rays with your favourite tipple out in the garden?
