    Mrs LyonsAug 2021

  • "We enjoyed the cottage, the facilities and especially the welcome pack."

    We instantly felt at home, and loved the towns and villages of the cotswolds.

    Mr BradleyMay 2021

  • "Although we booked this break well over a year ago then had to delay it because of the well known pandemic, we have been delighted with everything to do with Groom's Cottage and particularly with the reception from Stuart and Tracy."

    Stuart was pretty adept in providing us with a ramp for our wheelchair (he even covered it with artificial grass) Well done Stuart. The welcome pack that Tracy left for us really lived up to it's name, we are now sold on Cotswold butter ! Even though we were curtailed by lockdown measures around the local area we were able to really enjoy visiting attractions such as Minster Lovall Hall, Cogg's Farm and Blenheim Place, and returning to the comfort of Groom's Cottage was a real bonus.

  • "Comfortable and spacious cottage, good location, welcome hamper was a nice bonus."

    Both owners were nice and friendly. Overall, we had relaxing short holiday, spoiled a little by weather only.

    Dr SuveizdisApr 2021

  • "Nothing was too much trouble."

    We arrived after a difficult time (probably true for everyone in 2020). We booked on the day of arrival and Tracy had put up a Christmas tree and provided a welcome pack with a homemade fabulous loaf of bread, Cotswold butter, a selection of miniature jam/marmalade. Biscuits, milk. Absolutely extraordinary. The cottage is very warm and cosy, beds are comfortable and during Covid the attention to detail in everything means you feel very safe. Procedures are in place to keep cottage a safe environment. Everything was in working order and excellent decor - relaxing and peaceful. Best cottage ever. Thank you all the extra steps were much appreciated.

    Mrs HarrisDec 2020

  • "The cottage was so clean and so very well equipped."

    Tracy was very welcoming and gave us some excellent tips on where to go. This was our first break since all the madness began and we weren't sure what to expect but there was no impact on our holiday whatsoever. The cottage was the best one we have stayed in as it was so well laid out and so very well equipped. Lots of 'how to' information too which has been lacking sometimes at other properties. Would very highly recommend Grooms Cottage to all!

    Mrs OwenSep 2020

  • "The cottage was beautiful in a fabulous location to visit the spectacular places in the Cotswolds."

    The welcome box was amazing. Tracy & Stuart were perfect hosts. The local pubs were lovely & would especially recommend the Horse & Radish. It was a perfect home from home.

    Mrs DouganAug 2020

  • "Great property in a great location!"

    Hosts were a lovely family and gave us a very warm welcome! Recommended!

    Mr MannJul 2020

  • "We had the most enjoyable stay at Groom's Cottage."

    Everything we could have needed was available. The cottage was immaculate throughout and the beds and towels were very comfortable. Stuart & Tracy were very friendly. My daughter particularly enjoyed seeing the horses and hens. If we were to stay within the area again, we wouldn't hesitate to come back.

  • "We have had a lovely week @ Groom's Cottage."

    A very luxurious cottage with everything you need. All the small touches are so thoughtful from the welcome basket to the cotton wool & tissues in the bathroom, even rubber gloves in the kitchen!\ The bathroom is like having your own personnel spa and we love the soft lighting - perfect.\ The whole cottage is very welcoming and we will be back.\

    Mr And Mrs Bennett

  • "A very enjoyable stay."

    The cottage is lovely with very comfortable beds! Very well equipped and very tastefully designed, furnished & decorated. \ Visited several pretty villages and had a very relaxing few days. Out r first visit to the Cotswolds and certainly not disappointed! Thank you for the welcome pack, a very nice thought!\

    Mr And Mrs Lednot

  • "A very comfortable cottage with everything you would need for a home from home experience."

    The en-suite is like having your very own spa.

    Mrs Bennett

  • "This is the most beautiful cottage I've ever stayed in!"

    I stayed with my two children for a week and we were so impressed. Spotlessly clean and smelt wonderful! Beautiful ensuite to the upstairs bedroom and a lovely view of the horses and stables to wake to each morning. Tracy and Stuart made us feel so welcome and with all the luxuries of home this cottage is a must. Minster Lovell is a pretty little village and within great distance to all the attractions Oxford has to offer. We will most certainly be booking Grooms cottage again in the future. Thankyou Tracy and Stuart for a wonderful stay

It has several local county inns, including The White Hart and the Old Swan which provide excellent food and real ale. There are public footpaths that cross the field to the parish church or across the river to a small weir where local children often go to swim.
