We really enjoyed our stay at Nantucket. It is really cosy and even nicer than the pictures. The interior decor is lovely and beautifully finished with lovely homely touches and complementary colours. I travelled with my parents who loved the views from the living room and the outside and watching the ducks and swans. Later, my husband and sister joined me with her young son and everyone loved it! Even though it rained a few days, we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The area is considered to be the 'Hamptons of London' and there's some great things to see and do nearby aswell. Roves Farm is fantastically interactive for children of all ages and my Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed the stunning grounds of Sudeley Castle and the beautiful pheasantry. Natalie is extremely helpful and attentive. I have already recommended Nantucket to friends and family. In case it is booked up, Natalie has other equally lovely-looking properties too. Thank you Natalie! We look forward to coming again!
Hello Asma. Thanks for your lovely review. I hope I can welcome you and the family back sometime soon!! Natalie

Despite the freezing weather we had a fantastic week at the cottage. The cottage itself was perfect for my crawling & inquisitive 10 month old & its location on the lakeside provided endless entertainment for all of us. We will definitely return as I think it will be even better when the weather eventually gets warmer!
I am so pleased you and the family had a lovely time, and baby enjoyed the visiting swans and ducks. And yes it is super lovely in the warmer months too. Come back soon!!
