    Very well set up, & on request a key was swiftly provided so that we could lock the upstairs windows against an inquisitive toddler. We had also, on request, been sent a plan of the building & this too was a great help. Many thanks!

  • "The Clealings is a great property for a family together."

    Home from home feel with everything that you need. Comfy beds, spacious living areas, games room and large gardens were our highlights. Absolutely spotlessly clean and lovely welcome pack on arrival, may benefit from leaving more cleaning products so we could keep it clean during our stay. Perfect location with plenty of places to visit within half an hour - over our weekend stay we visited Bibury, Burford, Witney Lake, The White Horse at Uffington and The Model Village at bourton-on-the-Water. We would definitely recommend.

    Plenty of room and well facilitated. The games room was an added extra with a football Table, Pool Table and radio tv. The large garden all around was lovely to wake up to in the morning. Very easy to get around with Whitney just up the road and Oxford including the Cotswolds all around. A lovely welcome pack with all sorts to get your teeth stuck into and a Christmas Card from the Cleaning team which was so nice thank you 5* don’t do this place justice but that’s the max allowed.

  • "The clealings is a great property for family get togethers."

    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 Clealings is a beautiful property with extensive well manicured grounds so great if you have dogs."

    Our dogs loved running around in the open space! The property was exceptionally clean with all mod cons. Bedrooms on the ground floor make them easily accessible for anyone with mobility issues. 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. We had a great time with some super memories to treasure.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your time spent at The Clealings and returned home with memories to cherish. You're always welcome to return. Property Owner

  • "Most importantly the cottage was sparkling!"

    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! All in all a wonderful week of peace, rest and no Covid anxiety.

    What a lovely review! It sounds as though you had the most wonderful time! Fiona is super and we will pass on your comments to her. Thank you! Property Owner

    Superb location, huge amounts of garden land for the children to run about in. Slide / swings that the kids loved too (although it was on the other side of the house to the patio / decking so there wasn't anywhere for adults to sit while supervising the kids - would be better for that equipment to be in the other side of the garden). House was well stocked with cooking equipment and entertainment, beds were comfy too.

    We were a family of 6 adults, 2 children, a toddler and baby and there was so much space in the house and the children loved running about in the massive garden so much that when we went out on day trips they were very eager to return to the house. The details and pictures do not do the accommodation justice. The lounge is large and comfortable with another smaller library room off it, the kitchen is extremely well equipped to a very high standard, and the dining area very light and spacious. Furnishings throughout the house are very good quality and the beds and linen very comfortable, almost luxurious. The owner has thought of everything to make the holiday let better than a "home from home".
