A beautifully maintained, clean, spacious, very well appointed home within easy walk of Bourton.

5 of 5
Engagement and booking with the owner was very straight forward - with good, clear directions and easy access... and good off-street parking. Bedrooms beautifully furnished, with lovely master suite.. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of counter space and three fridges... large utility room and laundry. Kitchen open to large dining area with seating for 10 - which opens out with double doors to terrace... two outside tables and chairs plus large sun umbrella. A very comfortable venue for large family gathering - respectful request from the owner to remain aware of noise when utilizing outside areas / in the evening due to proximity of neighbours, however house not directly overlooked. Would definitely book to go again 👍
