Upon being greeted by Marion, we were shown around the first floor apartment and were so happy with what we saw. It was spacious, warm, cosy, and the little touches provided were a real sign that the owner cared. Our stay was based around us going out walking everyday, and the position of this property was perfect. It was quick and easy to get to the whole of the Cotswolds, and was also located near plenty of pubs, restaurants, and supermarkets. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone I speak to about our little break. And the best part was, she said YES!

On our arrival we were welcomed by Karen Simon and their two daughters, what a lovely family they are. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure our break was perfect - which it was! Cottage is furnished to a high standard and you want for nothing, they have thought of it all. Scrumptious welcome tray in kitchen for us, fab comfy bed with gorgeous linens and fluffy bath towels - we were spoilt. The village is quaint,lovely walks and nice coffee shop and pubs to tempt you. We will definitely return later this year. Would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage to anyone looking for "fab place to stay".
