It was a beautiful, well-appointed cottage that met all our needs. It was spacious yet had a cosy atmosphere and oozed charm. There was lots of information on hand about what to do in the Cotswolds. We can't recommend it highly enough and hope to return one day.

I love the location of this beautiful cottage, being only a short walk to Stow on the wold. The cottage is great for my mum who has mobility issues and it has everything you need. We had a few days of rain but even then to sit in the lounge and look out at the lovely view through the patio window is very relaxing. Biny and Tony are very helpful if you need anything and provided us with a lovely cake. This cottage is perfect for us, easily accessible and where it is situated couldn't be better. Hope to return again for a third visit.
