Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than four guests at the property.

Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.


Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Great Location and Amazingly Clean and tidy house

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a great location to get to other places. The area is so quiet so great in the evenings to have some wine and relax. The local village (just over 2 miles away) is surprisingly busy especially in the evenings to perfect to drive down to or a brisk 45 minute walk.

A Beautiful Cosy Cottage in a pretty Village

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is just so pretty! Good sized rooms and handy to have two bathrooms. It's bright and airy and in a good central location to Stow-on-the-wold, the Slaughters, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-water to name a few. There was plenty of tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, loo rolls and toiletries. The welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch too! It's one star short of a full house as there is no washing machine. This wasn't a problem as we were only there for 3 nights - but had we stayed longer this would have been a bit of an issue especially with 2 kids. Also there were only 4 forks/plates/bowls - it would be handy to have a couple more of each item and some more glasses too. A few of the mugs and glasses needed washing before we could use them but this may have been because previous occupiers had not washed them properly. There's a bit of mildew build up in the shower which could easily be rectified. These are all minor issues which in no way tarnished our time here. We loved cosying up in front of the wood burner in the evening. All in all a superb stay - we'll definitely be back!
