- Very Good
Really lovely house that was perfect for our getaway. Arrival was very easy. I would advise arriving when light as the driveway would be difficult to find in the dark. All round it was perfect for our stay!!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your great feedback. Kind regards Melody
“Lovely holiday cottage”
Had a fantastic time is this beautiful holiday cottage, with all the family. The beds were comfortable and we were all able to have decent sleep every night. The aga took a little getting used to however was fine to use. Plenty of space in the living room for all of us to relax at night time, we had a 2 year old who enjoyed all the films and games. Garden was lovely, unfortunately didn't always have the weather to enjoy it fully, looking to return in the summer months. The village was a perfect base to be able to explore and go off to difffenrt places around the Cotswolds. We even enjoyed a walk to Wichford woods with stunning views. Only one small niggle, was that we felt a little rushed out on day of departure, as the cleaning company turned up at 10am however we didn't have to leave until 11am so quickly had to pack up the cars, however did not ruin our experience. Just a perfect get away for a family of different ages and our dogs. Thank you very much, hoping to book up again soon
Owner's reply: So sorry to hear the cleaning company arrived early, you should have chased them away as they have clear instructions only to arrive after 11am. Please to come back again and I will make up the hour you lost on your return. Kind regards Melody
Lovely cottage, perfect decor, fully equipped, wonderful garden. Only downside is it is on a main road which is on a bend so a bit scary when coming out with dogs. I would highly recommend this cottage and we will be returning soon.
Owner's reply: Thanks Sheldon, The road has been there for a very long time; I have seen a photograph of the same junction back when there were only horse and carts. I agree the front door is close to the road and as a result we generally cross over from the driveway that way you can see and hear any cars approaching. We look forward to having you stay again.
Myself and 4 friends had the nicest Easter Bank holiday in this lovely cottage, in the most picturesque village. The cottage is the perfect size for 5/6 adults to relax comfortably and the garden is gorgeous and an excellent added extra when the sun was shining. We had a few issues cooking with the aga as the actual "oven" space is limited when cooking for 5 people but we worked around it. There were lots of nice homely touches throughout however we couldn't help but notice a vast amount of spider webs and dust around the house but I'm aware this is difficult to deal with in a thatched cottage! Overall we had a great stay, thank you!
Owner's reply: We are always delighted to get positive feedback from our guests. The spiders are a bother with their webs and debris they drop. I am trying various gentle ways to discourage them, they are harmless and I would prefer not to go in with the vacuum cleaner and kill them. Thanks again. Melody
“Fantastic stay - thank you”
Cottage was very cosy and comfortable. We stayed over New Year with my brother and parents. With 2 new babies was the perfect getaway. Ate at the pub just down the road which was delicious. Lots of nice walks local. The road at the front is busy but we just sent someone across first to check for traffic. Having a Christmas Tree was also great - thank you x
Owner's reply: Thank you Jodie, lovely review to start 2017. I am glad you had a lovely stay. All the best for the year ahead.
This was a very cosy, comfortable and warm place to stay. It felt like a second home to us as we quickly learnt how to cook on the agar and familiarised ourselves with the house. The children spent most of the time outside playing in the large garden and it was easy to be able to sit outside and enjoy meal time despite it being October and a little on the chilly side. The village pub was a 10 minute walk away and served amazing food which tempted us back a second night running. I would highly recommend Byeways to anyone who wanted to stay in a very traditional, but up to date with all the mod cons, cosy cotwalds cottage... Really lovely and relaxing!!
Owner's reply: Lovely review, you are always welcome.
“A great escape & perfect City timeout”
The cottage is very well fitted out. It is decorated in a old, meets new way. And I have to say, that it's very well done! It's best described as very traditional building setup with all sorts of modern day conveniences. So for example you have gadgets (like capsule coffee machine), but you also get to use a traditional oven (though not difficult). There's enough space to fit 2 families (3 kids, and 4 adults) - The cottage give gives you plenty of space and time to completely disconnect from the city, and unwind. So, what we really enjoyed the most about our stay, was the outdoor play space, there is plenty of it. There is also off street parking, and a really nice outdoor's seating area to enjoy seated lunches & barbecues. There is 'YouView', and provided DVD's to entertain kids for those rainy days. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
“Full of character, middle of the Cotswolds and dog friendly!”
We spent a lovely extended weekend at Byeways. I had my parents over from Brazil so I had tried to look for something traditional and full of character, and I have to say this place has it in abundance. Very nice house, large rooms, beautifully decorated with quality furnishings and all the mod-coms. Even the aga oven took some time to get used to it, but it was a great chance to show it to my parents who had never seen one. Its location is also very convenient. Long Compton has a village shop with everything you could need and a lovely dog-friendly pub (Red Lion), both walking distance from the cottage. There is the village of Whichford nearby with another great dog friendly pub. There are plenty of local walks around the village which is what we were after. The only drawback was perhaps the difficulty of finding the cottage on arrival with so many other thatched roof cottages in the village and no number or names on the houses. It could do with some better explanations of how to find the property once you are in the village. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place full of character!
“A character house with modern touches and great outdoor space”
Byeways is a fantastic character house that has been modernised (tastefully) inside, with good sized bedrooms, a modern kitchen and high quality linen. Given the great weather my daughter really enjoyed playing outside in the large garden area (which includes a tyre swing) and the bbq (which was in good condition) came in handy for meals. Only downside was occasionally forgetting the low ceiling beams, but I would recommend it to friends and intend to stay there again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review, my husband has also bumped his head a few times, sorry about that. best regards Melody
“A blast of the past (with disguised mod cons)”
What an awesome getaway! The luscious Cotswolds countryside could only be enhanced by staying at Byeways. Taking a different one of the numerous walks from the cottage each day instilled peace and tranquility while at the same energizing us to go and visit the surrounding villages and tourist sites. Safe in the knowledge that we had a comfortable home from home to return to when the spirit finally wavered. Time spent in the well laid out garden was very relaxing as was the in front of the fire place watching the telly. The king size bed was extremely comfortable with an abundance of pillows. The kitchen was well appointed with everything to hand or available at local shop. The range looks like something from two centuries ago, but in fact conceals modern technology. Easy to use and also performs central heating. There were even washing powder tablets for the washing machine come tumble drier. In short, all amenities were available with supplies. Well worth a visit and we're looking forward to going back.
Owner's reply: thanks so much for the great review. We have now supplied a drying rack. Kind regards Melody
