  • "We were wowed by The Clealings the moment we drove through the gates with the beautifully kept garden spreading out on either side of the property."

    My two children, 6 and under, were thrilled to see a climbing by frame and with the gorgeous weather we had, they and the other children in our party spent so much time playing in the garden. The house was clean and today with a wealth of dvds and games in case of rainy days. All the rooms were lovely and spacious and the beds were comfy with lovely soft duvets. With so many people in our group having a main bathroom and a second separate toilet downstairs was very handy. The shower was lovely and powerful too. The kitchen was exceedingly well equipped with every utensil you could wish for and the coffee machine was an added bonus. The games room with the pool table was also great fun. Thank you to the owners of The Clealings for such a wonderful break.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this lovely review. We're glad you and your family had such a great time at The Clealings and made the most of all the facilities and amenities in the property. We would love to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Due to work commitments we can never get together on Christmas day so our weekend at Clealings becomes our Christmas eve, Christmas day and Boxing day. Everything is always really clean, tidy and well stocked. I can't think of a negative thing to say about Clealings, all 9 of us look forward to our stay. The welcome pack is much appreciated. To find that Waitrose deliver was the icing on the cake

    We are so pleased to welcome you back again for a 5th time and that you all enjoyed your early Christmas. We hope we can welcome you back again for a 6th time! Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    One of the nicest properties we have stayed in. The kitchen and appliances are lovely. Everything was so clean. The sofas need changing you sink and feel like you’re sitting on wood. Would be nice if there was a table tennis table in the games room. The downstairs bathroom door doesn’t lock properly. The late check in time of 6pm nearly put us off booking this cottage.

  • "Beautiful house in huge grounds, lovely views."

    Exceptionally clean and spacious, kitchen particularly well equipped. Welcome pack was very generous. Beds and pillows very comfortable. The children made full use of the grounds and enjoyed the playroom. One grumble is the 6pm check in - much later than most properties, and effectively loses a full day of holiday. Safety issue; the small step between kitchen and conservatory is almost invisible as 3 people found to their cost. Hazard warning tape is advised. As an old, arthritic lady, I found the sofas impossible to use. They are very low and slouchy. I hope you don't mind the feedback, it is intended to be helpful. We had a lovely break, thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback which is important to us and will be followed up with the owner. We're pleased that overall you and your party enjoyed all that the property has to offer. Best wishes, Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "The property was fantastic and even better in reality than the expectations we had formed from the pictures online."

    The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything needed by a family of foodies and more. The welcome pack in particular with bread, butter, tea, coffee and jam was a lovely touch and quite unexpected. It would have been useful to have had a dish cloth or sponge and some dishwasher tablets. There were references to dishwasher tablets in the file about the property, but none that we could find. We were disappointed that none of the bathroom or toilet doors locked which caused a few embarrassing interruptions. Overall, it is a lovely property and we all enjoyed our stay very much and would happily go back in the future.

    It is spacious, very clean, warm, the games room is good, and the gardens if it hadn’t been raining are huge and well maintained. However, for somewhere that has no cotswolds character, and is a little worn, the sofas are quite tired etc. I do not find the pricing accurate, I know everywhere has price hikes and there is covid cleaning, but it’s pretty bad for a 6pm check in and 10am checkout, so less than 48 hours, to charge £1,295 in a property that would have been about £800 on an October weekend pre covid.

    Thank you for your comments regarding your stay. It is a great base to explore the Cotswolds and perfect for family gathering, due to the size of the garden area. We will pass on you other comments to the owner for review. Property Owner

The games room was a welcome addition and we enjoyed a few games of pool. Trips out included Bletchley Park, Highclere Castle (about an hour each way). Closer is Oxford City, Aston Pottery and the town of Witney (lovely) - all well worth visiting. Remember to book any visitor attractions beforehand as Covid restrictions require it. Good pubs nearby - The Fleece at Witney and the pub that sits at the Tadpole Bridge site where you can watch the canal boats as you sip your chosen drink or eat a meal.

    Fiona (the owner) was amazing, we had visited Bletchley Park on the day we arrived and really wanted to watch The Imitation Game but hadn't bought the DVD. Within 5 minutes of asking Fiona whether there was Netflix a bag appeared on our doorstep with not only The Imitation Game but a large selection of brand new blockbuster videos which kept us entertained all week. There was plenty of wood and kindling for the log burner. All the appliances worked perfectly. The instructions given to rentee's were user friendly and sensible. The location was excellent and the directions to find the cottage also excellent. One of the highlights was watching the Red Kite's in the late afternoon swooping over the garden - I wouldn't be surprised if this was organised by Fiona too!
