"Gorgeous Cottage in a beautiful village"
Myself and my family stayed at Honeysuckle Cottage for my Dad's 60th birthday and we really had a wonderful time.
From the moment we arrived and saw the welcome hamper which was filled with all the essentials such as eggs, milk, cheese, orange juice, bread , cake and even a bottle of wine. Also as it was my Dad's birthday we had a bottle of fizz and some chocolates it really was a lovely touch.
The cottage itself is perfect for six people, all the bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and the kitchen and living spaces are great. The log fire was a real highlight and we really enjoyed sitting around it chilling out after a day in the Cotswolds. Only thing I would say is perhaps a shower curtain in the main bathroom and a larger fridge as we struggled to fit everything in.
The village of Lower Oddington itself is stunning, the local pub the Fox is the perfect country pub, it is a little expensive but you do get what you pay for. Myself and my sister went on a morning runs around the area and loved it, its what everyone imagines an English village to look like. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. It wasn't the cheapest but its well worth the extra to stay in such an amazing property.
Few tips the Kings Head in Stow is great for an evening meal, lovely surroundings and great cocktails. We visited Bourton, Stow, Moreton and the Upper & Lower Slaughters all are not to be missed. We did have a drive to Cheltenham Spa but I wouldn't bother it is just like any other city nothing special. Visit more of the pretty villages rather than go there.

A very pretty little cottage, excellently furnished and just right for 6 people. It's in a delightful village with two pubs, both of which are easy to walk to. There are also lots of pleasant walks around this area.
Parking at the cottage was pretty easy - simply unload in a nearby driveway and then park in laybys round the corner. The lounge was small but perfectly formed, spotlessly clean and can easily seat 6 people. TV, literature, games etc are all provided.
The kitchen was very well equipped and also, wonder of wonders, a dishwasher! We were also surprised to find a welcome pack on the table - wine, chocolates, bread, eggs, bacon, cheese, milk etc. A wonderful touch which we hadn't expected as we'd already nipped to the shops in Stow to buy our essentials!
Upstairs, the bedrooms were very pretty and quiet. Towels, soap and shower gels / shampoos were all provided. The family bathroom was a decent size and the en-suite shower was an added bonus for one of the bedrooms. The water wasn't piping hot but this didn't bother us.
All the neighbours were very friendly and welcoming which was a surprise because I'd have thought that holiday makers are the bain of many a small village, many of which don't have enough locals to make it a decent community - however this one was the exception to the rule.
All in all, a lovely experience and a great cootage.
PS It would be great to see this cottage added into Tripadvisor which is my travel bible and where I normally go for travel advice.

"A lovely cottage in the Cotswolds"
I stayed at Honeysuckle Cottage for six weeks in October and November 2012. The Cotswolds is a beautiful part of England. Autumn was amazing. The Cottage is equipped with everything you need to have a special time. The managers were easily contactable a responsive to any issues with the property. Lower Oddington is a lovely little village with one very classy gastro pub. There is a Tesco in Stow in the Wold about three miles away. You need a car!

"Great place for a UK getaway"
6 of us stayed at Honeysuckle Cottage for a long weekend. I would definitely recommend it for a break with friends and can also see it working for families too. The cottage is lovely, 3 good bedrooms, plus a family bathroom and an en suite shower room. The downstairs living space is great, with spacious living room and kitchen with a dining table. Being able to stoke a proper fire in the lounge was also definitely a bonus. Oddington itself is a lovely place with two local pubs in walking distance and driving distance of lovely nearby villages and walks - the cottage provides lots of information about walks which we took advantage of. Stow down the road is convenient for groceries with a Tesco and other shops. All in all a great place in a lovely location - would definitely recommend. The welcome basket they provide is also a definite plus - certainly didn't see that advertised for the great price we paid for this place at other cottages - a nice touch.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to leave a review for Honeysuckle Cottage
I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Honeysuckle Cottage and you liked Oddington.
I have noted your comments re the garden and the sign and will feed this back to the owner.
I manage Honeysuckle on behalf of the owner and many things I am able to implement myself, however there are some things which do need to owners attention. I am pleased to say the garden has been attended to since your stay and I am sorry it hadn't been done prior to your stay and its something we will attend on a regular basis.
Oddington is stunning village and one I fell in love with ten years ago when we first visited it and i very found of it and enjoy my 6 weekly visits to the area.
Thanks once again for your comments and hope to see you return to our Cottages.
