  • "We all enjoyed our stay at the property, having been to the cotswolds before it was a great location to get around everywhere."

    Was a little disappointed with the state of the bins when we arrived, both were overflowing . We had to squash them down for about 3 days before they were emptied again , but other than that everything was fine. Would stay again.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Mount View and loved the location too. Thank you also for bringing to our attention the issues with the overflowing bins which we have passed on to the Property Manager. We hope this didn't impact your stay and that we can welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Very nice rental in good location and very quiet."

    Large kitchen an asset when staying (4) weeks and appreciated having both a washer and dryer for use during that long stay. The location is close to good food shopping at both Morrison’s Supermarket and M&S in Evesham and great butcher shops in Winchcombe and Broadway. Appreciated having the gas fireplace on some rainy and chilly days during our stay. Ray and Jo Ann Castellano, Cape Cod, MA USA

  • "This was our second time this year at Mount View."

    We chose is as it has a lovely ground floor double room with shower en suite suitable for our elderly father who has mobility problems. One improvement that could easily be made would be the addition of hand rails in the shower and a non slip flooring to the tray. This room is perfect for those with mobility issues but the shower area isn’t as safe as it could be. This time we took our own mats and even a shower stool to lessen the chances of any slips. Other than this, the house is ideal for a family gathering and very well equipped whilst also being close to lovely places to visit. Thank you for another nice stay.

    First of all thanks to the cleaning company, they did their best to let us check in 2 hours earlier, I also had the pleasure of meeting the owner, a very polite gentleman, he shared with us some places to visit and on this occasion we thanks for his hospitality and advice. The house is very well equipped in all respects, the kitchen is spacious and equipped with everything you need to be able to cook for yourself, the rooms are warm and spacious, the floor heating on the ground floor and the heating in the radiators upstairs was very good, the large yard , parking for 4 cars, I have nothing to object to and we thank once again those involved in this wonderful holiday and last but not least we thank the people of sykes cottage for the support and information provided. We wholeheartedly recommend this holiday home and whenever we have the opportunity we will return here and in this wonderful area.

  • "The property itself was good overall, the kitchen white goods and equipment excellent, so why was this Cottage let down by cleanliness, so much so we had to complain on the first opportunity Ref: COR 285668 CF Mould on the Water Filter jug in fridge, thick cobwebs around all kitchen skirting, food waste under sofa cushions, downstairs bathroom bin still full top of loo brush dusty and human hair around shower."

    Subsequent to our initial complaint, Every baking tray contained food deposit, Cobwebs around bedroom headboards, When retrieving a toy from under a sofa a pair of old socks plus a mass of 'dust' deposit, clearly had not been moved for some time. Finally broken glass in bottom of Dishwasher. We have rented many holiday cottages over the last 20 years and have never had cause to complain, just to confirm that we are not being excessively fussy. Since COVID quite rightly more stringent measures have been put in place with regard to cleaning and most cottages have added at least an hour before occupation can be taken. So, we would like some feedback as to exactly what checks are actually carried out by the owners to ensure this extra cleanliness is carried out and what can you say to convince us to hire a Cottage again, which at present we cannot see ever happening?

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we sincerely apologise for the cleanliness you encountered. This is not the standard that we strive to adhere to. As soon as we were informed we arranged for housekeepers to go the property to rectify. Character Cottages Property Owner

    A few things we would have found useful are A butter dish A potato peeler More cutlery especially teaspoons as it meant the dishwasher needed to be used more often Oven gloves- we brought tea towels as asked but found them there but no oven gloves- really essential or one needs to be told to bring them One other thing- there was one room with a double bed but no storage space for clothes- I think folk need more warning about that- less important for us as a child was in the room but not much good for a married couple Overall it was a lovely house in a great area- albeit on rather a noisy road- maybe a warning about that too

  • "The house is lovely and we had an enjoyable stay."

    The issues I had was not having a gate to the back garden as it just didn’t feel overly safe, knowing someone could walk round the back easily. One day someone just popped up and came to get the bin which scared us! I would definitely build a gate just to add privacy. Also the cleanliness, there were spiders and cobwebs everywhere. If you look up in the skylight in the kitchen it’s covered with them and all the cleaners need to do is hoover each time which takes seconds. This let the property down and I was surprised to see so many cobwebs. Overall it’s a great house that’s good value with everything you need, in a good location.

    Thank you for providing this feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Mount View. We're sorry if you encountered some issues regarding cobwebs and will of course pass on your concerns to the housekeeping team. We hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

    Facilities very good only two things for improvement. I had my elderly mother with us and in downstairs bedroom en-suite it would be nice to have a handrail in the shower cubicle for the elderly who need help. Also, in the en-suites would be good to have a basket on the wall for putting soaps/shower cream etc. Our stay was great the house is in a good location for visiting places. The views from the house are beautiful and it was nice to see the sheep right next door to us. Would definitely recommend and would stay again. Thank you.

  • "We were a group of 6 people consisting of 3 generations."

    The tastefully decorated downstairs en-suite bedroom met our elderly grandparent with approval. There was ample space on the ground floor with a cosy and comfortable sitting room with tv to the front and a lovely and large open plan fully-equipped kitchen, 6-seater dining table and a corner sofa and tv to the back. The small rear garden was fully tiled with a bench and large patio set for outdoor dining. Its rather compact size though, disappointed the kids immensely, as they had planned to spend much time playing outdoors; our own garden being at least 3 x larger. Nevertheless we made the best out of it and a good time was had by all regardless. The field of sheep next door was an added bonus and lovely surprise for us all. The upstairs en-suite master bedroom was similar to the downstairs one but rather drab in terms of decor; curtains reminded me of grandad's slippers! The beautiful views however helped in overlooking this point. The double room was very disappointing. It was tight and dark, having no storage units whatsoever, with the exception of some wall hooks and a small sidetable. It certainly was not ideal or comfortable for two people having to live out of a suitcase for 5 days. This bedroom could do well with a wardrobe or chest of drawers in the very least: without the need for a fancy chair either. The single bedroom was very basic too although a chest of drawers and some hooks for storage was included here. It would have been useful to have some hooks put in the bathrooms too. We booked this property due to it's high ratings but sadly it fell short on a few points. The most unacceptable point for us was the level of cleanliness. The property was full of cobwebs and spiders; under all the kitchen cabinets, in ceiling corners etc. We even spotted a very large and menacing spider in the back room which had the girls screaming their hearts out. Unfortunately we could not find it so hope no-one else gets to encounter it. The dirt in the sliding door runners still remains there and no effort to clean the outside furniture had been made as it was also ridden with cobwebs. Another unacceptable point was that when we arrived at the property, the cleaner was still busy cleaning and did not leave til almost 7pm when check-in was supposedly 5pm! We also had a man stride onto the property one evening, without any notice whatsoever, who then subsequently pulled out the rubbish bin from the back garden to then take it to the front. We assume this had been agreed by the owners, however it shocked us and encroached on our privacy. The owners have still not added any games or books to pass time with on those dull and wet evenings nor are there any dvds or a dvd player all of which we would expect as basic necessities. Compared to other properties we have stayed in, this property did not offer the high standard you would expect from paying the amount we did

    Generally completely happy. I suggest the owner should inspect more often: Hoover full and not functioning well Tried to clear out dirt from sliding door runners, but failed 3 pepper grinders but not a grain between them For a luxury property at this price level I would expect: pepper, a few coffee pods to get us started, shower gel, spare bin bags, books, games

    The finish of the property was to a very high standard and had everything we needed. The only thing that could possibly make the property even better would be to have a side gate as we had 3 young children and when playing in the garden had to have all eyes on them because of the main road. But that really wild be the only suggestion and didn’t take away from our stay at all. We would definitely recommend this to other people and would definitely return again!

The property

This wonderful semi-detached retreat resting on the outskirts of the quaint village of Childswickham, close by to bustling Broadway, is the perfect getaway for a gathering of friends or a family who are seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Vale of Evesham.

As you arrive on the property grounds of Mount View, you are welcomed by a large gravel driveway that houses up to four cars, before you step through the front door and into the smart entrance hall, where to your left you will find the tastefully decorated sitting room where you and your loved ones can relax of an evening, catching up on your favourite show on the Smart TV, whilst the heat from the gas stove-effect fire warms the whole downstairs.

Adjacent to the sitting room you will find the large and sociable open-plan living area, which is flooded with natural light due to the two bi-fold doors and glass roof lantern, and has everything you will need to rustle up a delicious evening meal, before you all retreat to the wooden dining table to tuck into your feast and cork open a bottle of wine, before retreating to the large corner sofa to allow your dinner to go down as the dishwasher helps you with the cleaning up!

A glass door leads you through to the useful utility room complete with washing machine and tumble dryer, and further onto the cloakroom with a basin and WC.

The downstairs benefits from underfloor heating which is perfect for warming your toes on a cold winter evening.

Take the evening outside to the patio area, where you can enjoy your glass of wine sat at the seating area that sits underneath a parasol, surrounded by a generous lawn running the length of the property and gorgeous flowers, shrubs and trees, as the fabulous uninterrupted views towards the Cotswold Hills puts your mind at ease.

The property boasts four well-decorated bedrooms, including a dual aspect king-size on the ground floor, ideal for those with limited mobility, which boasts a walk-wardrobe and an en-suite walk-in shower, while upstairs presents a king-size with stunning views a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite walk-in shower, the second a double and the third a single, which share their floor with the contemporary bathroom where you can have an indulgent soak amongst the bubbles.

Once you awake in the morning, head down to the kitchen and make yourself a warming mug of coffee using the Nespresso Pixie coffee machine before getting ready to head out for the day; head over to nearby Wayside Farm Shop and Tearoom for a delicious breakfast before enjoying a fun activity with your loved ones at Cotswold Clay Pigeon Shooting Ground and finishing off your day with a heart-warming meal at Childswickham Inn & Brasserie.

Close by Broadway has an array of art galleries, gift and clothes shops, three inns, a number of tea rooms and many more, retail therapy combined with good food and drink is to be enjoyed in Broadway, as well as Broadway Tower which is The Highest little castle in the Cotswolds and a real tourist attraction here.

In the nearby bustling market town of Chipping Campden there are many attractions and shops, you can take a leisurely walk around the 17th century Market Hall in the centre of the town and the East Banqueting House, just a little further on, or have a wonderful afternoon at Little Oak Vineyard, an award-winning vineyard where you can try and buy wonderful wines.

Train enthusiasts will be delighted with the light railway of Evesham Vale Light Railway, which operates in nearby Evesham Country Park and covers a mile through the park, including a lengthy section through the fruit orchards.
