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.

Excellent property, excellent location. Lovely friendly owner.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent. Our only slight problem was, it did not have a sign outside. The sat nav takes you further up the road and with it being dark when we arrived it was difficult to find. Other than that, Excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know we are difficult to find in the dark - we will check the outside lights to make sure they are all working. I will also check that we are correctly marked on Google Maps and the HomeAway site.

Lovely, well equipped cottage. Perfect for a getaway !

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage and good location. Kitchen and sitting room at opposite ends of the property but didn’t worry us.

Bedrooms scattered about but added to the charm.

Would have been nice if pool was open but understand it was late in the season. Nice pub 2 minutes walk away.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely and the pictures on the website don't do it justice. It's perfect for a big group of you. Everything you could need was there. The pool is lovely and a little walk across the courtyard.

The cottage is fantastic you will not be disappointed. Thank you Beth

Perfect for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage that suited all our needs perfectly. We particularly appreciated the large dining table and enjoyed serving up some great meals. A real bonus was no queuing for facilities and so relaxing being able to have a bath. I got into a routine of having a daily swim, the pool is delightful and big enough to swim a few decent lengths. A real highlight was being so close to Highgrove and we all thoroughly enjoyed the garden tour, it is really worth doing. (But you must book well in advance) The local pub is charming and we enjoyed Sunday lunch, clearly a popular place. This is a 5 star property in a pretty village with many interesting day trips on the doorstep. We definitely are hoping to book again!
