"Quiet location, ideal getaway"
Spotlessly clean - it felt brand new. Milk, coffee, tea and biscuits were provided - a nice, welcoming touch. Situated right by the fishing pools - very peaceful and beautiful. Plenty of parking. Gre… More

"Excellent, all around"
We highly recommend this accommodation as a central 'homebase' in the Cotswolds. In particular, if you enjoy a good bath - I know it sounds silly - stay here. Although there are no jacuzzi j… More

"Good facilities but not friendly.."
My wife and I brought my two daughters (11 and 5 years old) stayed 5 nights in Jul13. The environment and facilities are good, but the owner I have to say, is not friendly. The lady was generally lack of smile on her face. On the last evening of our stay, when my 5 years old daughter walked close to the owner's house alone while we were sitting at the lakeside, the lady suddenly opened the door and shouted "get off the window, this is private" and then shut the door heavily. My daughter was terrified and felt hurt. What a surprising behavior which totally ruined our holiday mood. Even the little girl's behavior was not appropriate (she is only 5 years old), why not telling my wife or myself to educate her, or pointing out directly but in a polite way. In any case, bullying a child is not acceptable not to mention in such a service industry. No matter how good the facilities are, if the owner is not friendly, it is hard to become a good choice.
We welcome guests from all over the world here and do provide an information sheet in each property clearly available to read with guidelines on fire regs, rubbish etc. and clearly stating the private areas of garden. I had to ask a guest to stop looking in the windows of our private home and to politely point out the very roomy seating, garden and patio area available for guests.

"Lovely Cottage in stunning surrounds"
Beautifull cottage with absolutely everything we could have wished for. My Wife & I went with our 5 year old daughter & stayed for 3 nights but we wished it was a fortnight!! Lots to do & see in nearby locations & a trampoline & a swing in the courtyard which was a huge hit with our daughter...!! We're sure to book again...!
