A fabulous cottage in an idyllic location, ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. The cottage was tastefully decorated, with all the mod cons we needed, making for a very comfortable stay. The cottage had a great garden which was fabulous for the kids to run around in and for the adults to relax in at the end of the day with a nice glass of wine! The owners Helen and Martin were lovely and made us feel very welcome. We definitely plan to go back! xx

Good size & very well located, perfect base for cycling around Cheltenham and driving further afield - Forest of Dean & Bristol. Only downside, slightly chilly - we needed the heating in the evenings - in July. Would consider using again if we holiday in this area.
