"Perfect , comfortable ,traditional Cotswold cottage ."
Spent a lovely last minute weekend at The Cottage. Convenient location as walking distance to train station. Ideally placed for family get together, as we are all spread around the country. It was wonderful to be able to park the car outside the cottage and leave for the full weekend. We were then free to explore and enjoy some of the fabulous local walking. Plenty of good pubs and places to eat in Morton and we all found it very friendly despite our diverse age range. The Cottage was comfortable , as were both double beds. The owner was very helpful and obliging also flexible which was useful as it meant we did not have to rush on the final morning. We had a contact number for the owner but did not overtly feel their presence . Though the bottle of wine awaiting our arrival was a nice welcoming touch. We will definitely stay again as we suspect will our sons their partners and families.
