  • "We had a lovely holiday at the Wash house comfortable clean accommodation."

    The owner Helen had made us a beautiful cake on arrival there was also a vase of fresh flowers and a bottle of milk in the fridge. The views are stunning and lots of wildlife to see. Plenty of instant hot water and a fab shower. I asked Helen about the fab pottery on display and she took me to her pottery studio well worth a visit and lots of lovely pots to buy. If your after peace and relaxing accommodation this property is well worth a stay in the Cotswolds thanks again Helen and Adrian .

  • "We had the most wonderful week here."

    The situation of the Wash House is superb, so quiet and beautiful views. The wood burner was amazing and it was all so comfortable. Will definitely look for an opportunity to come again. Adrian and Helen were very welcoming and a delicious cake and beautiful daffodils were awaiting our arrival ( and milk in the fridge). Would wholeheartedly recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely stay at one of the cleanest and most spacious cottages for 2 we have stayed in."

    The Wash house was warm and cosy. It was peaceful and the owners left us to it after welcoming us. The homemade cake was absolutely lovely and a delightful touch. We enjoyed watching the Red kites and buzzards flying above us. It was a great base to explore the cotswolds.

  • "We had a lovely week last week at the Wash House."

    We eventually found it after our sat nav told us to turn left too early! Up a very long drive (just keep going) but the views from the property are spectacular, especially the sunsets. The property has every conceivable item in the kitchen and it’s really cozy if you light the small log burner which we did on 2 occasions. The large bedroom has a king sized bed (2x3foot mattresses) and plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom has a large shower and has underfloor heating. The property was immaculately clean and the Victoria sponge made by Adrian was superb. Met Helen his wife later in the week and she kindly showed us round her pottery workshop. They are a lovely friendly couple and made us feel very welcome and we can most certainly recommend this property to anyone wishing for some peace & quiet.

  • "The property was extremely clean and a bottle of milk was left in the fridge together with a beautiful home made cake which was absolutely delicious."

    The property is on the owner's farm. After a welcoming introduction on the first day we did not see them. A useful and informative leaflet which included their contact details. There was a great selection of books, games, many DVDs and very useful maps. The views are beautiful and very peaceful and we saw some stunning sunsets The location perfect to explore the Cotswold area and easy to get to Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon. We had a very relaxing week. This was our first time away since Lockdown and we both felt safe and secure. Many thanks,

    Easy driving access to Hook Norton, Moreton on Marsh, Upton House & Chipping Campden. Perfect. Very clean and uncluttered cottage. Woodburner a bonus! Saw a couple of hare chasing across the field right outside the house. Felt like a real break, thank you!
