"A perfect place for exploring Cotswold"

We stayed for one week in Lavender cottage. The village and the cottage gave us "Peace of mind". The accomodation was very good and the inn close "to home". You need a car to get to the village, but then you don't need it every day. The bus service runs twice, but if you don't want to return in the afternoon you can do like we did....take a taxi cost of 15-16 pound.

"Great cottage and location. Highly recommended."

Character cottage, with all mod cons. Tastefully furnished. Well equipped. Sweet garden with beautiful views over fields. Delicious, quality pub food literally over the road. Children's playground nearby.
We found it very comfortable and homely. The owners welcomed us in person and were very friendly and helpful.
Would definitely recommend this property to friends.

"Lovely cottage in excellent location"

Lavender Cottage is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The location is excellent with many good walks from the village of Farnborough itself. Across the road is a gastropub that serves delicious food and has wifi. There is plenty to do locally. There are several National Trust properties, The National Herb Centre, Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and Banbury are all nearby. We had a lovely holiday!
