The Wild Rabbit is pub of the year in the 2015 Michelin Guide. Book in advance for the restaurant but drop in for the bar food. The Plough is well known for high quality food and and The Mill House has taken over as a more local eatery. All are in walking distance.
I include all basics eg washing tablets dishwasher tablets tissues loo rolls to get you started as well as logs etc
Payment by internet transfer or pay pal.l Those transferring from abroad must pay bank charges. I do not accept cheques but you can pay a cheque into my account at your bank. I respond quickly by private e mail rather than via the site so you will just get an acknowledgement via the site. I do not take a security deposit so you only pay the rental after I have sent you a booking contract. I usually contact you direct too if you make an online booking.

"A charming cottage in a lovely village"
We stayed at this attractive, comfortable, cosy and very well equipped cottage in the centre of Kingham in September. The information leaflet supplied by Sue, the owner, was very comprehensive with good directions to the cottage and it provided a wealth of information about the village and the area. Booking the accommodation was straight forward and easily arranged. Parking was on the street, and there were ample spaces available close to the cottage.
The village has two pubs, and a well stocked village store/Sub Post Office.
Kingham is a lovely, friendly village and is well positioned in the heart of the Cotswolds with plenty of places of interest to visit within 1 hours drive.
We really enjoyed our stay there and are very happy to recommend it.

"Lovely cottage in a cute village"
My friends and I loved staying in this cosy Cotswolds cottage. It was warm (with a radiant open fire), convenient, clean and relaxing. The weather was wet while we visited, but we enjoyed walking down to the Daylesford Organic Farm cafe and also had an amazing lunch at the Kingham Plough. We would stay here again if visiting the Cotswolds. Thanks to Sue.

"Picturesque cottage in the Cotswolds"
Cook's cottage is set in a very idyllic location in the village of Kingham in the middle of the Cotswolds with very easy access to all the major tourist attractions. The cottage is fully equipped and has a very special charm and character – exactly how you would expect a proper Cotswold cottage to be. The owner was extremely helpful in providing information and good ideas for our stay – should anything not have been provided beforehand, we found lots of literature and books in the cottage itself, including some very good pubs in the surrounding area. Also, access to wireless internet was a great bonus for us, as we travelled with teenagers.

"BEAUTIFUL COSY COTTAGE IN A LOVELY VILLAGE, SUROUNDED BY WONDERFUL COUNTRYSIDE. LOOK NO FURTHER."
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!
