What an excellent find - we thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in this cottage.
The description is accurate, the cottage well equipped and spotlessly clean. Tastefully decorated and furnished. Dishwasher and AGA oven and every other bit of kitchen equipment we could want. Entertainment was with satelite and DVD players in the main bedroom and a comprehensive VHS, satellite, DVD and surround sound system in the main living room.
Adequate towels were provided and the beds were comfortable.
Lovely conservatory with underfloor heating so the stone floor was comfortable in bare feet in January. The main lounge was simailarly comfortable and fast wireless (or wired) broadband internet connection was available all round the house.
The location is near the centre of the village, but down a private path so very, very quiet. This did mean carrying bags etc up the path, but that was no great hardship. Small garden with pond and seating (not used by us as we went in January).
The village is well located for visits to beautiful town such as Cirencester, Cheltenham, Gloucester and many more, all within a short drive. It is also very convenient for a vast number of possible walks, short or long, around the Cotswolds. The cottage is so nice though you could spend the whole holiday not going out simply chilling.
There are many pubs and restaurants with good value excellent food and beer nearby, see a Good Pub Guide. There are several eateries within a couple of minutes walk in the village.
It was delightful dealing with the owner and her representative.
The downsides? Not really any. Parking might be tight, but we never had to park more than 1 minute walk away. Water pressure is a little low, but I guess that is to be expected in a Cotswold Village. There was still enough for a reasonable shower, and there was no problem of hot water running out. Significantly disabled guests might struggle with the steps and path to the front door.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily go again. Good value for money in my opinion given the level of facilities provided and the location.
I would have no reservations at all about recommending this find.
