My 3 year old loved the hot-tub and the surrounding area with all the horses around. Very close to the river Avon, Tewkesbury, another little village and a play park. The house has a lovely 'away from it all' feel. Simon and his partner/wife? where incredibly helpful without being intrusive and communication was easy and flawless. The house was nice and warm with plenty of entertainment. Would definately come back/recommend for a nice quiet time away!

It is literally perfect for a weekend away with friends. We were warmly greeted by Cazz who showed us around and had even taken the trouble to make up the beds especially to match the number of our guests. The house was beautifully presented and the indoor pool and games annex were perfect for chilling out. It is an isolated location, which suited us well but also very accessible for nearby activities and Gloucester/Cheltenham. We will have to come back and try out the BBQ area in the summer. If you get the chance to book this house I would jump at it - you really won't regret it.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It has recently undergone some changes to make two separate bedrooms and a open plan kitchen and front room. The work has been carried out to a high standard and has made a great difference to the sleeping accommodation. The property sits in the pretty village of Upton Upon Seven which has restaurants, convenience stores, and several pubs. Upton provides perfect access to many parts of the cotwolds. Will definitely stay here again, when we visit the Cotswolds.
