Charm everywhere you turned!!!

5 of 5
Our four-day visit to the Cotswolds was, alas, too brief as we quickly learned. The cottage was perfectly located for daily excursions to the South towards Bath, or northwards to the charming villages and manor homes. Vittoria had thought of everything....maps and brochures to guide us on all of the surrounding attractions and tips on local pubs, etc. The cottage itself is ever so charming and comfy...the kitchen well equipped for a hearty breakfast, pre-dinner cocktails or midnight snack....and the gardens an utter delight. My first sentence sums it up...our stay was too brief.

Brilliant, homely cottage, very well cared for and some lovely finishing touches.

5 of 5
A very warm welcome from the owner. Very helpful and lots of information available regarding good places to visit and to eat. The Cottage was very clean and organised. Furnished and renovated to a very high standard and included everything that we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the fresh bread on our first morning.
