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.

We were attending a family wedding at Kingscote. Lovely property with all the facilities we needed. The weather was inclement but we still very much enjoyed our stay.

Excellent house and location for a group getaway

  • 5 of 5

7 adults and two children (and two dogs) on their annual let's go somewhere at the end of January weekend. The house was perfect. So many bathrooms! Cat and Custard Pot pub served v good food on the Saturday night. Muddy walks past colossal estates passing under peahens in the trees! And very good shopping in Tetbury. Thank you.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for us five adults. It was a cold weekend but we felt very cosy and comfortable. Everything we could need was provided, and Beth even leant us extra kitchen implements.

Highly recommended!

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.

Our property is located between the two beautiful market towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border. Malmesbury Abbey is well worth a visit as is the outstanding Georgian Gothic Parish Church of Tetbury and Chavenage House, setting for may scenes of Poldark. Our nearest large town is Cirencester, heart of Roman England. Bath with its recently renovated Thermal Baths, Bristol, home of Brunel's SS Great Britain, Cheltenham with it racecourse and Gloucester are all within easy driving distance and is Swindon with the famous Outlet Shopping Centre. Shipton Moyne is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with easy walking from the village. There is easy access from us to the Fosse Way and the Cotswold Way. 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.

Other Activities: Wake boarding
