Sadly we were locked out of the house until 8pm and only accessed the property due to my daughter finding a hidden key- the house was dirty and messy and did not have clean bed linen or towels the owner had to be called to remind her of our arrival - the following day the heating and hot water was not working and again the owner had to be called to come and restart the boiler - very unprofessional and disorganised
There was a genuine mix up at our end and we hold our hands up and admit that the house hadn’t been fully prepared before the guest arrived (the bedding still needed changing over). However, this was remedied on the night that the guest arrived. The heating was working, it was cold because the thermostat had simply been turned down to 0, so this was resolved as soon as we were told about the issue. Whilst we understand why the guest wants to highlight these issues in their review, we are very disappointed that they have neglected to mention that they were sent compensation and said that they were happy with that gesture.
Freezing cold - thermostat turned right down, hot water didn’t work at all and no response from owner when asked about it. Poor.
I am really sorry to hear about the problems with the heating and hot water. Unfortunately, I did not receive any messages from the guest so I was unaware of the issue they encountered until 10 days after the guest had left. Had I known I would have sent someone over to assist them straightaway.
Location excellent. Cirencester town delightful. House good. Information book on how to work the fire and central heating etc would have been helpful. Mismatch of cutlery and crockery some of which were broken. Dishwasher didn't work. Sofas small and uncomfortable.

Cirencester is often referred to as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’ and was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. In later years it became a very prosperous medieval wool town and today it still contains many interesting buildings with architectural styles spanning several centuries.
The award winning Corinium Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of Romano-British antiquities, is only five minutes walk away from the house.
A gentle stroll from the house brings you to the town centre, which has a pleasant mixture of independent and national shops. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from or if you want to stay in and cook, there are excellent independent butchers, fishmongers and deli s in Cirencester and a large Waitrose within walking distance where you can stock up on provisions.
Within a short drive of Cirencester there are many other attractions to visit, including: Westonbirt Arboretum which is particularly stunning in autumn; the Cotswold Water Park for a range water sports and other recreational activities; Chedworth Roman Villa; the historic wool towns of Tetbury and Stroud and the beautiful countryside of The Cotswolds with stunning scenery, ideal for walking and rambling.
Cirencester borders the eastern edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The area is well known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being ‘typically English’.
Throughout the area, the honey-coloured Cotswolds limestone features in buildings and stone walls acting as a common thread in seamlessly blending the historic towns and villages with their surrounding landscape. Offering breath-taking scenery ideal for keen walkers, the Cotswolds offers 3000 miles of public footpaths and offers one of the best kept ‘rights of way’ networks in the country.
