  • "Had a very relaxing stay at this cosy cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean, comfortable, well furnished and quiet. We felt at home straight away. The cake and milk was a nice touch, plus there were lots of other little essentials. Cottage feels like it’s been lovingly restored. Lovely village too and ideally situated for exploring the Cotswolds. We would happily return!

  • "A really lovely cottage and was very impressed with how clean it was and the fact everything was labelled so we knew what to do/how things worked."

    Great location for some peace and quiet but equally only a short drive away to all the nearby towns which we didn’t mind. Would definitely love to stay at this place again and would recommend it to others :)

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    A perfect choice for a couple. A lovely, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and stylish cottage on the edge of a pretty village with local walks, a village store, a coffee shop and 4 pubs that served meals. It was an ideal location for exploring Oxfordshire and the bordering counties.

  • "The property was extremely well equipped with all we could have needed and more and it was in very good condition."

    However, we did find that the bedroom was too tight for us and the rugs on the floor beside the bed caused problems at night as they slid on the floor when stepped on. The lack of clothes storage was also an issue, the wardrobe was adequate but there was minimal drawer storage so such items had to remain in the suitcases during the week. As these cases had to be stored under the bed this created more difficulty. Use of the bath would be safer if a bath mat could be provided perhaps? We found it a bit slippy during use, probably due to use of shower/bath soaps. We found it difficult to get out of the bath due to the narrow space between bath and sink. We did not feel welcomed by the co-owner, having arrived 15 minutes or so early we just sat outside waiting to be allowed in. At the appointed time she advised the cottage was ready for us and we accessed the key from the keysafe. No verbal welcome was offered. We will not be returning. We did not arrive early hoping to gain early access.

  • "This lovely cottage was perfect for me."

    I stayed here by myself for 3 weeks to enable me to be near family in Bloxham and I felt very comfortable and extremely safe. The cottage is in a perfect spot, ideal for walks or venturing further afield by car or bus from the nearby bus stop. Everything was spotless and the kitchen was equipped with everything one needs. I could have easily stayed another 3 weeks and I would love to return in the future.

    A lot of thought has gone into making the cottage cosy and comfortable with that ‘home from home’ feeling as soon as you walk through the door. All the little extras have been thought about including a tea cosy for the teapot. We have loved staying here and hope to return next year.

    Very well appointed cottage with lots of thoughtful touches. Excellent range and quantity of equipment in the kitchen so you don't have to wash up every time you want a cup of tea.
