Lovely cottage in a really pretty village well located to access many places

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very well equipped and nicely presented throughout.

Master bedroom was very comfortable. Did not use the double sofa bed but it too looked fine.

Would definitely recommend this property and would also use it again myself.

Two pubs in the village. The one furthest from the property was extremely accommodating with good beers and plenty of gin.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here and have enjoyed both visits immensely. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable indeed, with all the facilities we could want. Rather than use the sofa bed, we have taken our inflatable bed for our second child which works better for us in the evenings. We have found everything to be well maintained and kept perfectly clean. The owner is very helpful and friendly, going above and beyond what we would expect to make us feel at home.

The location is excellent with many attractions within an hour's drive, including Blenheim and Stratford-upon-Avon. The immediate area is peaceful with a very nice pub around the corner and some good walks.

Would definitely recommend.
