  • "Very lovely and quiet, spotlessly clean the welcome pack was a lovely touch."

    Garden was fully enclosed for our dog and very pretty. The cottage was very well equipped I took some utensils because in previous places it has been lacking but I didn’t need to use them as the owner Sue has thought of everything, we received excellent instructions regarding key entry for our arrival and didn’t need to contact Sue during our stay as everything was spot on. Would highly recommend and there is an Aldi , Sainsbury’s and Co-op a short drive away in Chipping Norton.

    thank you so much for your feed back. Property Owner

    Perfect accommodation for a relaxing week, in a really beautiful area. The cottage is so central for all the main attractions. Everything is clean and tidy, inside and out. Dogs are well catered for and garden is totally enclosed . There is a real feeling of peace and quiet, without being too remote! Enjoyed watching the red kites and waking up to birdsong. Hoping to return next year.

  • "Very comfortable cottage situated in a quiet area off the road."

    This is our second visit so that speaks for itself. Very well equipped and plenty of space for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. The enclosed garden was safe too. The new Air Source Heat Pump is very efficient providing plenty of hot water and the central heating was very warm. We were lucky enough to have some warm sunny days so visited Blenhiem Palace & Broadway to do the walk up to Broadway Tower both good days out. Unfortunately we had to truncate our stay due to our cat dislocating her hip back home (long story) but we enjoyed the few days we had. We have family in the area so no doubt we will be back again. Many thanks for the welcome goodies very much appreciated. The dogs enjoyed their treats too!

    The cottage has an enclosed garden which meant that our dog could mooch around safely . We were left a lovely welcome pack with Prosecco, snacks and dog treats. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed . The cottage was clean and cosy . We didn’t use the log burner but I’m sure that would be great on a cooler week .

    The kitchen had all the equipment we could have needed. The area was quiet and the garden was perfect for sitting outside during the hot weather.

    We have stayed at so many cottages over the last three decades and this is up there in our top 3 Our only criticism would be the contact details provided. We were going to be a day late arriving and wanted to let someone know as well as obtaining key collection details. Despite leaving messages on the landline and mobile numbers there was no callback which was disappointing However this did not have an adverse effect on the holiday with the cottage being just perfect for us and our small dog Lovely secure garden.

    Mattresses in twin bedroom have they springs coming to surface and would suggest mattress toppers are taken with you. Washer had black mould around seal and there was no instructions for heating when we arrived on a cold day. We were given the wrong Internet password but quickly sorted by owner. Might be an idea to take your own towels and quite small and rough.No bath sheets. Also no hoover available. The lounge was comfortable and cooker and fridge were very clean.

    The enclosed garden was great for the dog - very secure. When we arrived it looked as though the downstairs floor had not been cleaned (hoovered or mopped). The downstairs toilet also looked as though it hadn't been cleaned either. The cottage was very comfortable and couldn't find fault with anything else, it's just a shame about the downstairs cleanliness.

    I'm sorry you felt like this. I can assure you the floor is hoovered every change over. It isn't easy to clean the stone floor but it does get cleaned. I don't understand the toilet being dirty as I clean the cottage myself. Property Owner

    Rose Cottage had been thoughtfully decorated and there were some lovely welcome gifts, including dog treats. The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm on arrival. The kitchen area was particularly well equipped: far better than the average. The stairgate was really helpful in deterring an excited Spaniel from further discovery- the safe and secure garden was much appreciated for her ball games. The bedrooms were lovely and the hot shower was effective. Would recommend Rose Cottage without hesitation.

    The bedroom had nice quality furniture and a comfortable bed. The Wi-Fi signal was good. The bathroom had a good shower. The row of 3 barn conversations are situated in a quiet area off the road with parking. We did find the road could get quite busy for a B road and as it’s long and straight vehicles moved at speed especially during morning rush hour then again from school run time. This didn’t disturb us but it did mean it wasn’t safe to walk our 2 dogs along this road. Great location for touring around the pretty villages of the Cotswolds also conveniently placed for Blenheim Palace. Chipping Norton just up the road for shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the welcome pack including the dog treats which our dogs wolfed down. We also found the book of walks in the drawer helpful. The garden was very useful for the dogs. We would and very likely will stay in this cottage again whilst visiting family in the area combined with a break.

    A complete and practical cottage, good place to start nice trips in the region. About Rose Cottage (and some reviews): - the boiler can be switched off during the night (You’ll find on/off switch in the toilet). - the bed size in the main sleeping room is ‘standard’. Like in many other UK houses and hotels. As I’m 6 feet 7”(200cm) my feet are used hanging out of the bed. Naturally it will be appreciated that beds expand to 210 or 220 cm. But this will take time. In Holland I notice improvements. In the cottage shower and mirror are on good level (also often mounted quite low for large persons). - any comments, positive and/or negative can be written down in the guest book (please not only via review), and Sue also was nearby or on-line for questions. Sue knows about the issues mentioned above.

    The people staying in the other two cottages were very nice which we appreciated, as you are on top of one another so to speak. We arrived to a generous welcome pack, wine, chocolates, cake, dog treats, plus coffee tea & milk so we could have a cuppa on arrival, as our Sainsbury's delivery would not be arriving until a bit later. Lovely flowers on the table also. Although surrounded by lovely countryside it is well placed for a quick drive down to Chipping Norton, the Aldi there is very handy. Great Tew is just down the road but we would not have walked there as all on the lane and cars did seem to drive quite fast along there. Also you can get to Broadway Tower (a must), and all the North Cotswold towns easily. Whichford Pottery is nearby. As regards cottage, it's very nicely fitted out, comfortable furnishings, very good appliances. The twin bedroom would benefit from some hooks to hang clothes on, had to use door frames and handles. Altogether a successful week.

Easy check in and out. Quite easy to find. Lovely area and surrounding villages. We went to visit family but wish we were staying longer so we could do more exploring. The only down side for me was on one morning we were woken up early by builders on the building site and the boiler was really loud even when the thermostat was not on.

  • "The only recommendations we had for the owner was, curtains to the back double bedroom window and a mirror would have been useful in the same bedroom."

    Great base for visiting the local surroundings and some great books provided for some local walks.
