Weekend away with friends

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cottage with all the space and numerous bathrooms / wet room. Very warm in all areas of the cottage with plenty of hot water.

Our hosts were very obliging and even pointed us in the direction of the local Point to Point races!

An enjoyable weekend loved by one and all, including Freddie the dog.

The cottage had all the facilities and contents that we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time but Wish that the heating in the dining room and a couple of bathrooms was sufficient for a chilly February.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that the dining room and a couple of the bathrooms were a bit cold. We have had some trouble with air in the system, which is hopefully now sorted.

Girly 50th Celebration Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My very first impression was how beautiful the cottage looked from the outside, once in I was blown away, it was fantastic, plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms for 10 of us, kitchen very well equipped, dinning room and living room were large rooms with plenty of seating, TV set up, fantastic, showers work so well, beds very comfortable, the garden area was lovely, only too cold and rainy to sit

out. Had a lovely meal in the pub Saturday lunch time, staff very helpful and reasonable prices. We all wanted to stop for the week, we will definitely be back.

Deep in the country

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent pleasant vacation time here, from 4-12 July 2016. This cottage is a large barn conversion, in the village of Shipton Moyne. It is comfortably furnished in "shabby chic" style. The kitchen is quite adequate, with a generous-sized refrigerator. The structure itself is constructed of the native stone, as are most of the village buildings. The Birdwood family lives across the farm compound; however the cottage itself seems quite private. It has an outdoor terrace furnished with table and chairs, where we ate most of our meals.

This property is distinguished from others of its type by the large, walled swimming pool on the grounds. This area is pleasantly landscaped, and the pool, though not warm, was tolerable for me, the grandmother of the two children, 7 and 11 years of age, who loved swimming every day.

We enjoyed the ancient church, and the friendly parishioners with whom we chatted after Sunday service. We all relished our Sunday meal at the Cat and Custard Pot pub. Both were just a few steps away from the cottage.

This is a quiet village set in idyllic Cotswold countryside. Every evening was filled with the cooing of doves, and the clip-clip of local horses out for their walk. Mrs. Birdwood was quite affable and helpful with our reservation, as well as a few small needs which arose during our stay.

I recommend this rental, and would definitely return myself for the serene country environment.

Great house for up to 5 couples

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion of 4 couples and it proved to be ideal because it's spacious and comfortable. Having 5 bathrooms was great and saved so much time! The house is situated in a lovely village within easy reach of Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and Cirencester, all of which we visited. The pub, Cat and Custard Pot, is within staggering distance (150 yards) and serves good food. Also, a big thank you to Beth for booking The Vine House pub for a great Sunday lunch. Strongly recommended for large parties.

Westonbirt Arboreteum is a couple of miles away as is the Beaufort Polo Club. Day trips include Warwick Castle, Longleat House and Park, Cotwold Wildlife Park and Bowood. Gatcombe and Badminton Horse trials are also within easy reach of our cottage.
