Location description from owner

The England region

“Idyllic”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2016

We stayed at Quince Cottage for 3 nights. What a delightful place! Beautifully refurbished, single level cottage. Very cosy with lots of character and so much thought has gone into making it as comfortable as possible - from lovely comfy beds, crisp linen, fluffy towels, magazines, leaflets and information booklets, including maps of local places of interest. Karen left us some welcome goodies of bread, butter, milk, eggs, wine, etc. which was really lovely. We celebrated my mum's 84th birthday while we were there and Karen was really helpful in recommending restaurants and nice places to visit. Armscote is a very quiet village with one pub. It is close to lots of beautiful market towns and villages, as well as Stratford on Avon, which are shown on the website. We will definitely be going back!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments and I am delighted you enjoyed staying with us here in Armscote. We want all guests to feel Quince Cottage is their home from home and have a relaxing place from which to enjoy exploring the Cotswolds.

“'HOME FROM HOME'..... NOT LIKE A RENTAL PROPERTY AT ALL”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

A perfect cottage to stay, relax, and enjoy the Cotswolds. Karen's advise on villages to visit is not to be missed. Quince cottage is like no other rental we have stayed at before, and we have stayed at a fair few. Really is like home from home, with everything thought of. The cottage has been decorated , and furnished to a high standard ,with attention to detail, which wasn't taken for granted by us. Welcome Pack was excellent. Karen's warm welcome, go hand in hand with this warm cosy cottage. Hope to visit again to see more of the Cotswolds.

Owner's reply: I am so pleased when guests are genuinely pleased with their stay at Quince Cottage. I have tried to make it exactly as I would like it to be when I visit somewhere new, home from home. To hear good comments means I know I have got it right and I hope guests will want to return to for another stay in the Cotswolds.
