We had a wonderful stay at cosy cooks cottage, it was the coldest week of the year, (many years in fact!) complete with snow, but this made the warmth of the glorious log burner even more special to come home to after a lovely country walk.
The cottage is set in a quiet corner of a beautiful sleepy village but with everything you could want within easy reach, a great little village shop only a few minutes away, a lovely country pub and only a short drive to Stow or Chipping Norton.
Cooks cottage is very comfortable and very well equipped (it really is a cook's cottage!) this helps make it a real home from home retreat. We only ate out once at the Thai shire in Chipping Norton (fabulous food!) Most evenings we enjoyed cooking fresh local produce from Daylesford organic farm shop which is only a five minute drive or even better a 20 minute walk away (again excellent!)
Sue the owner of the Cottage does absolutely everything she can to make sure your stay is as great as possible, The icing on the cake!
Whether you want somewhere to lock yourself away for a week or somewhere to use as a base to explore the glorious surroundings you won't find better than Cooks Cottage.
We are from Brockworth which is only a 50 minute drive away but it felt like we were a million miles from home.
*one point to note is that the cottage does have a short but quite steep staircase so be careful if you're not steady on your feet or you're if like me and enjoy a few glasses or red with dinner!

Cosy Cottage with everything you could need in a holiday home. The central heating is very good and the wood burner was very easy to light and added extra warmth and cosiness especially on a cold... more

Perfect little cottage in lovely Cotswold village location. Ideal for friends, couples or a small family. Located in a quiet road in village of Kingham. 5 mins walk to 2 lovely pubs and very well stocked village shop. Cottage is compact, but very homely and has all mod cons. Would highly recommend.
