We had picked here because of its central location to places we had day trips planned.. Bath, Cotswold s, London, Oxford. Of course with this itinerary, a car is necessary. As hoped, it proved convenient for our plans. The place is located in the countryside, and very quiet. Occasionally, arriving at the end of the day, evidence of the garage tenet was visible, by the car parked there, but otherwise there was no indication that someone was there. There a a couple of pubs within a short (2 mi) drive. But, alas we did not have the opportunity to patronize them as we were out and about. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable, the only challenge being, timing use of the bathroom by 6 adults trying to get ready in the morning. All things considered it meet our needs.
