Due to our dietary needs the kitchen was all that we needed and well equipped. Set in a beautiful garden with excellent hosts. The position of the property is well situated for the area of the Cotswolds that we wanted to explore, however as the roads were not very busy you could easily venture further afield. We would certainly recommend the property to anybody who wants to visit this area.

The luxury to us consists of a decent home cinema, 270 degree view angle from the setting room, a very well equipped kitchen facilities, easy access spa and tennis courts, two mountain bikes and a canoe. The help-yourself vintage whiskey, cognac and a chilled nice bottle of Cava were just a thrilling touch. More important part is how Paul and Val responded to my request. I asked to push back my holiday booking by a few days only a few days before my booked holidays and Val helped me to make it happen without any addional charge on my such a last minute mess-about. I'm fully aware we can't easily get this nowadays. We stayed in this beautiful house for a week. Fully enjoyed the home facility, spa, tennis and walking around. We also visited a number of beautiful places nearby including the Roman Bath, Cheddar caves and Gorges, a nice little village Castle Combe, and the designer outlet stores in Swindon. This is a relax week full of lovely memories ! Many thanks to Paul and Val for such a luxury house with thoughtful provisions. It is a place I would highly recommend to anyone. Good value for money!

Loved the views from the balcony and enjoyed watching the water sports. Nice to find a property that welcomed dogs, it was well equipped and comfortable. The home felt a little impersonal and unloved, but dog friendly properties can't be expected to have fluffy carpets and white sofas! Overall we had a great week and would stay again. A note on the water park in general, we were shocked at the amount of fast traffic (50mph speed limit) and heavy lorries (from the quarries) on roads where families were cycling and crossing. A lower speed limit or safe pedestrian crossings are needed before there is an accident.
