"Beautiful, welcoming home with loads of English character!"
The house was very clean and ready on time for our arrival. The key was easy to access and the house was well equipped. There was hand soap and food items such as tea, milk, sugar, salt and pepper that made us feel welcome and some delicious home baked mince pies waiting for us! The Brew House has tonnes of charm and was very well appointed. The furnishings and appliances were lovely and the house was spacious and roomy for our family of 2 adults and 3 school age boys. The village had lots of pubs and a small food store and delicious French bakery. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who is wanting a English Cotswold experience. The only thing we found annoying was finding a car park. The village was busy over New Year and we sometimes had to drive around for a while before finding a park.
