  • "The garden was very untidy we had to sweep all leaves up table is broken and chairs all need replacing so we couldn’t sit out ."

    Dissapointed on no washing up liquid or soap in bathroom very sparse on cleaning products we had to go out but all cleaning stuff so for the price we paid was a bit mean have stayed at better places

  • "A lovely property with very comfortable beds and lots of space."

    Great wood burner as well. The Burrow was an excellent addition and very cosy. A lovely location and full of character. A couple of points re housekeeping, a few bulbs don’t work. There was no welcome washing up pack so we had to buy sponges and dishwasher tablets and washing pods. There was an empty suitcase and used bags of laundry left in the kitchen. Whilst this did not detract from our stay I would have expected these housekeeping issues to be addressed as this is not a low priced property. You also need a new outside table and chairs as they are wobbly. That said we had a fantastic time!

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Easter Cottage. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the cottage and it's set in a lovely area in the Cotswolds. We can only appolgise if the Houskeeper forgot to leave your cleaning pack and we will investigate why laundry was left at the House, prior to your arrival. The owner has purchased new garden furniture, which will be at the property as soon as it arrives. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, all rooms were well appointed and comfortable."

    We were a party of 8 and there was plenty of room for us all including the dog. 6 of us in the main building and 2 in the annexe which has its own fridge (which was most needed as a beer/drinks fridge as the kitchen fridge wasn’t big enough). I particularly liked the log burner on what was a cold and damp weekend. Also a nice touch was the welcome pack of essentials. A typical Cotswold setting with a very nice village pub where we had a lovely meal. The only (small) gripes were that upon arrival there were a a few dead insects which I thought should have been vacuumed up and no kitchen scales (I know a bit pathetic but I’m a keen cook and my sticky toffee pudding was a disaster). All in all a great weekend.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased that your party enjoyed your stay and made good use of the log burner and welcome pack. We have passed on your comments to our Housekeeping Team. Thank you for the recommendation of the village pub. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "A beautiful conversion of two cottages into one of a very high standard, spotlessly clean and well appointed."

    Six of us stayed in Easter Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the facilities. Absolutely up to the standard we have come to expect from Sykes. We had some meals in several well known and guide recommended hostelries but the best meal and ambience was in walking distance at the "local" ~ The Rose & Crown. A couple of housekeeping matters ~ there would appear to be a wasps nest in the roof because a few "dozy" wasps fell into the end bedroom to the left going up the stairs. A few more coat hangers in the master bedroom would be appreciated and we couldn't find any black bags for the bedlinen. I think the woodshed must have ended up on the fire because we couldn't find it or any logs ! None of these minor matters detracted from our enjoyment of Easter Cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Easter Cottage. It's wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed your stay, it's situated in a fabulous location, lots of great Restaurants to eat at and also places to visit. We will pass on your feedback with regards to the wasps nest and check this out and also look at adding a few extra hangers. We hope to welcome you back again very soon. Kind regards Manor Cottages.

    Excellent property but on-suite bathroom shower needs a bit of TLC , bird or rodent problem in the loft and outdoor furniture needs updating

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, it's much appreciated and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Easter Cottage. From your feedback we investigated and can confirm there were no signs of any animal activity in the loft. Birds are nesting this time of year so its possible this could have been the route of the issue. The owner is looking to renew the garden furniture this year. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "What a great property."

    Super clean and also a great space to feel like home for a short while. I think more sets of wine glasses and a few more utensils would be good. A few things to fix - shower hose in master bathroom bath - these should be checked. Otherwise the property is excellent and a lovely place to stay. Manor Cottages (property management) were also excellent and available.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on Easter Cottage and the Manor Cottages property management. We are pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay, we wish you would have informed us during your stay regarding the shower hose, glasses and utensils as we would have resolved these immediately for you. We have now addressed these. We hope you visit one of our properties again soon. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Easter Cottage was excellent."

    We thoroughly enjoyed the facilities and comfort provided in the property. Our children enjoyed the family games provided at the property. Definitely, we would love to come back again. Improvements required at the property are, Cutlery’s and tableware needs to be updated. Some of the utensils were not in a usable condition which was a little disappointment. It would be much appreciated, before change over, if you could ensure that property was professionally cleaned as advertised. Thanks again for the Easter hamper our kid’s enjoyed

    The cottage was equipped with everything we needed. The induction stove took some getting used to but we eventually got used to cooking on it. The local pub’s kitchen was being refurbished during our stay but the pub was open for drinks and was a few minutes walk from the cottage. Would definitely recommend the cottage and would return.

  • "We appreciated that the cottage provided a few extras such as tea, milk, crisps and biscuits on arrival, and we were not expecting these."

    The cottage itself was beautifully furnished and was as described. One thing we did want to feedback, is that there wasn't anything in the information, about a venue of some description (or appeared to be) where they were hosting a wedding/celebration. I believe this was the large house next door and its gardens backed onto the cottage. We heard a lot of noise late into the night for 2 nights. This was ok for us but may be worth noting for anyone with young children or those who may have trouble sleeping! It was slightly unexpected given the remote location. It didn't however have any impact on our enjoyment.

    Many thanks for your feedback on Easter Cottage and we agree it is a beautiful house. We apologise that you were not informed prior to your stay regarding the celebration at a neighboring house. We always endeavor to make guests aware should we know in advance. Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Our only problem was that none of the bedrooms had mirrors. With three females in the house needing to blow dry hair, this was a problem. However, within 3 hours of phone call to Manor Cottages a gentleman came to the door with a long mirror which we put on the landing and shared which was most appreciated by us ladies - thank you! That’s the only problem we encountered we loved this house and would like to thank the owners for letting us stay in their beautiful home. Great village pub (Rose and Crown) friendly locals and staff.

The property

Nestled within the pretty village of Shilton, on the outskirts of the majestic Cotswolds AONB, is the characterful 17th-century stone-built dwelling, Easter Cottage.

This spacious accommodation has been designed with a clever blend of character and contemporary in order to provide a superb base for a group of families and friends seeking to explore this superb location.

Here you will be spolit for choice by the sleeping accommodation that awaits you, with four elegantly presented bedrooms to choose from situated across the floors to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement.

The annexe to the property comes with a king-size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, ideal for grandparents or couples seeking privacy away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the group, whilst the main house comes with a super-king-size bed with en-suite bath, separate walk-in shower, basin and WC, a king-size double and a standard double bedroom, each designed with a touch of elegance.

Stepping into the kitchen/diner, the designated chef of the group will be delighted to find everything you could possibly need to rustle up home-cooked meals before settling down at the dining table to plan the days ahead.

After dinner, relax into your evening within the sitting room, where a woodburning stove is much welcomed during a winter’s evening.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, head to the popular town of Burford where you will be delighted to find a superb selection of restaurants, pubs and teashops, as well as a number of antique shops to explore one afternoon.

For those feeling active, a short car journey will bring you to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of walking and cycling routes that await.

About the location


Swinbrook 2.4 miles; Little Barrington 3.5 miles; Minster Lovell 5.6 miles.

Burford is possibly one of, if not the most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, it is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located midway between Oxford and Cheltenham, it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit. The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits! With little change over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and tea shops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudeley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all within ten miles.
