  • "Would have preffered a king size bed."

    Thank you for your review Karen, it does state on Sykes description it’s a double bed. We prefer not to have a King size bed. The bed sizes come down to everyone’s own preference, and unfortunately we can’t please everyone sadly! Property Owner

    Super location for exploring a new area. Excellent walks from the cottage door. Great for dogs. The hot tub was a good size and a nice treat after our long walks. The tea and coffee etc was very handy. Lots to do in the area. If going with dogs I recommend The Cotswolds Wildlife Park.

  • "We had a great stay at The Stables."

    It is remote so perfect if you want to get away from it all. The hot tub is lovely! It was clean and warm upon arrival. The property itself was very clean, kudos to the people who give it a thorough clean. When we arrived, we were greeted with Prosecco and goodies which was lovely! The Christmas tree was such a lovely touch too, set the festive scene. The kitchen is well equipped, you just need to explore it to find what you need. Everything is modern and works well. I would say there needs to be more drinking glasses though, there were only 2 in the property. The heating is new and works quickly so we were warm all the time. The shower is warm and powerful, there isn’t a bath so if you’ve got kids, be mindful of this. There were only 2 towels so we did have to do a wash, it may be worth proving a few more especially for those using the hot tub. We used the main bedroom and I’ve got to say, we didn’t sleep too well. The bed is too small. It’s a double but you could very easily get fit a king size in there. My partner isn’t the smallest so we felt so cramped. The bed frame is also really squeaky so if you’re a fidgeter like me, you do risk waking the other person up. The mattress itself was good. The pillows were thin so we did have to take more from the spare bedroom. I really do think upgrading to a king size would make the stay much more enjoyable, I’m sure most guests wouldn’t mind paying a bit extra for a larger bed. As a side note, the hairdryer doesn’t work properly, it cuts out after a few seconds. Overall we had a lovely stay and it was wonderful being able to take our dog. The property is modern and stylish. We did call the hosts once to work out the fire and they were friendly and quick to answer. Thank you for a lovely week :)

    Hello Jessica, thank you for your review. We are not sure what you mean regarding drinking glasses as there is loads in the cupboard from wine glasses to beer glasses. Property Owner

  • "Really lovely cottage."

    A lot of things to do that were a short(ish) journey in the car. Well equipped kitchen and loved having a washing machine, made coming home less stressful as could do it before we left. Very cozy and great heating especially with the nights being in the minuses. Only reason it wasn’t 10/10 was the bed, but that’s more personal preference, I suffer with nerve damage so most holiday lets beds are uncomfortable for me. Definitely recommended!

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location for exploring Cotswold."

    King size bed would have been better. Heating system that is in the main bedroom (in its own cupboard) woke us in the night. Down stairs w/c had an horrendous smell, which we contacted the owner about (my husband is a plumber so able to guide owner what the issue was) They got a plumber out the next day. We still feel issue hasn't been rectified as there is still a smell, not as bad but still awful. Shower also needs looking at, the water pressure is poor so not a great shower. We did clean limescale off to get the head to run a bit better. Also when using any facilities upstairs the water noise is rather loud throughout. Plumbing really needs looking at. Garden could do with a storage box for the furniture cushions. We were so lucky with the weather that it would have been nice to be able to sit on the furniture, however due to cushions being wet, this was not possible. It would be easy enough for holiday makers to put cushions away when not using furniture. However we had a lovely stay. Thank you.

    We are so sorry about the smell, you contacted us regarding it.We did our best at the time (as we are on holiday ourselves in the Highlands) it’s a issue being dealt with, as soon as poss.We’ve never had a trouble with the shower or water pressure. We also usually clean the cottages ourselves so if there was limescale then that will be be dealt with too. The new air source heating system installed in June and no issue with it. outdoor seating is new and obviously no storage box yet, sorry. Property Owner

    The only downside was that the hottub was not hot enough to use when we arrived. It took hours to get anywhere near enough lukewarm to use on the day of arrival.

    Hello Sheila, thank you so much for your review. We need to clean the hot tubs in between guests, unfortunately it maybe still heating on arrival. Sometimes previous guests do not use the hot tubs meaning we don’t need to do an entire water change etc thus making it lucky for the next guests coming in. We can not do anything about the speed of which it heats. Property Owner

  • "Cottage is fantastic, clean and comfy beds."

    And lovely hot tub too, although the jets only appeared to be working on the far side, we just kept swapping around! Oh, and a lovely welcome gift upon arrival. Situated in a very peaceful location, near so many quaint villages and historical towns. Perfect middle point for me and my 2 friends to meet up from different parts of the country. The owners, I felt, were not so professional. We were a towel missing, rectified upon notification to owners with a rather small bath towel. I feel the parking allocation should be signposted as to who should park where for the 3 properties available. Was asked to move one of the cars as there were 3 in our party, but next door only had 1 car. So my car could have been left on the car park by the bin shelter. Told to park on an overspill plot of muddy grassland. Where when I attempted to move it it got stuck due to rainfall, I eventually managed!

    Hello.Regarding the towel, the booking only came through with two in the party and when we realised we were on our way with the third towel the day you arrived (average size). It clearly states on making a booking that only two cars allowed per property and we do not know how many other cars are coming with the other properties until they are checked in. We did message you to say to bring your car back in after one night on the green due to next door cottage changeover and they did only have one car. We are sorry that it rain thus making it muddy on there. So of your 3 night stay you only stayed on the green for 1 night. There is plenty of room for 6 cars, and parking here is not an issue. Re the hot tub, all jets work on there and you just have to turn the actual jets and the bear claw on the side (this is the strength of the jets) it says this in the Hot tub book in the cottage. Thank you for saying we are unprofessional, that's something we've never had before quite the opposite in fact so we will try not to take this personally. Property Owner

  • "The fences around the garden are only waist heigh making it very overlooked by both the other guests and the owners who’s house is at the bottom of the garden, also can see right into the owners bedroom from the top floor."

    Dog owners be warned although advertised as dog friendly on arrival the rules are stated that dogs can’t go upstairs or on the furniture so I wouldn’t class this as dog friendly. The garden is secure though so was safe. Hot tub was nice although you are looking out into the car park as people arrive which was weird. The cottage itself was lovely and clean and kitchen well equipped although missing a little bottle of milk and tea bags for when you arrive but did have a bottle of wine waiting. All in all we enjoyed our stay and the location is fab for exploring all the villages of the Cotswold and close to Bicester village for shopping!

    We are fully aware that we can’t unfortunately please everybody although we do try our hardest. Fencing around all our cottages are 4ft high (we didn’t want 6ft high as it would make all the cottages too enclosed) Majority of our guests since we opened in 2017 has had dogs and a lot are returning guests as well, we’ve had guests ask if they can put their own throws on seating etc which has been ok. We ourselves have stayed in many dog friendly cottages (Sykes or other agency) and they’ve all requested no dog upstairs or on soft furnishings. As for the buildings we can’t help the layout unfortunately being what was an old working farm courtyard and once again it’s never been an issue. The distance between our property and the cottages is massive and is certainly not on top of each other. Property Owner

  • "Can't fault the cottage as it is finished to a very high standard and cleaned to a very high standard also."

    Only thing I would say is that blackout curtains could be considered but this did not bother us as we weren't there to sleep in. Cottage is overlooked by owners property but nothing a couple of tall plants couldn't sort out in the garden. This did not particularly bother us either as we were only there for a few days. The locals seem to hare down the country lane which runs alongside the property at quite a pace so maybe the property could be gated at the main entrance just in case children or dogs venture out of the gated gardens. Apart from that fab property and location. The local pub is a real gem. Falkland Arms which is 30mins on foot or a couple of mins in car. Great bolt hole to venture out to the rest of the cotswolds. Happy customers!!

  • "The Stables was immaculately clean and very well equipped."

    Although dogs are welcome, there was no doggy smell at all, I am pleased to say. We appreciated some thoughtful touches, such as a wall socket with USB charging sockets. The TV has recently benefited from the addition of a Humax Freesat box, giving a wide range of stations. The area is very quiet; one reviewer mentioned occasional road noise but although the Stables is the nearest of the three to the road, I think one would need to be very sensitive to noise to be at all bothered by the road. The area really is very quiet. There are many walks; the property has a number of guide books which we used. The property is a very short drive from Great Tew which has an excellent pub; we ate there on three evenings. I was pleased that the owners were prepared to accommodate my road bike which sat half in the ground floor toilet and half in the hallway. Having somewhere secure for my bike is very important to me. We will return to this property at some stage. I seldom leave reviews because few properties reach the high standards promised; the Stables is an exception.
