Highly recommended, a fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

This as our second stay at 'teachers' and yet again we had a fabulous time. The house is warm and cosy yet spacious, meticulously kept and thoughtfully equipped. The village and surrounding areas are so picturesque, and there is so much to do to keep all ages and tastes amused. My family

and myself found the house perfect for our needs, with each bedroom having its own bathroom, two living areas so the grandparents could escape the children, and a wonderfully equipped kitchen and dining room, perfect for a family get together. The owner Mary is very friendly and a pleasure to deal with, as is Rachel who greeted us on arrival. 'Teachers' comes highly recommended from us! Many thanks and we very much hope to return again!

Charming retreat with comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

There were seven of us and the house worked great for us. The master bedroom bed and pillow gave me the best nights sleep in weeks. The kitchen was well stocked (could have used a few more hangers but a very minor complaint). The location was great. Out in the country but close enough to town for conveniences, like groceries, etc. And Rachel, the house manager couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

Large and very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this lovely house over the Easter weekend. The Teachers house is in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with lots of picturesque places to visit in the area. There is a lovely enclosed well maintained private garden with a barbecue. There is off road parking for 1 car but space on the road for parking more cars outside the house. On arrival it was a nice touch to have flowers, champagne and chocolates left for us.

There are 2 lounges, a large kitchen and a lovely dining room with a large table which comfortably sits 8 people. The kitchen is well equipped although the oven and hob are slow and we needed to turn the oven and hob rings much higher than we would usually do and they took a long time to get to temperature. The kitchen has windows overlooking the garden and a table and 6 stools round it.

There are 4 bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms. It is advertised as 2 double rooms and 2 twin rooms. However it was set up as 3 double and 1 twin bedroom. All the beds are really comfortable with good quality bedding and towels provided. The double room on the second floor is in the roof space and is a challenge to get into bed on the right side. We knocked ourselves on the sloping wall up to the room and on the bed a few times till we got used to it.

The whole house is furnished with love and care and had a very homely feel. There are lots of extra touches like books, cd player and cds which we appreciated. The house has enough space for a large group to find their own space if needed and we really appreciated that all the bedrooms had their own bathroom.

Thank you to Rachael who looks after the house and the owners. We all had a lovely comfortable stay and didn't want to leave.

A perfect Stay for our family weekend to celebrate my 80th birthday.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and was perfect for the 8 of us. A lovely house in a lovely small village..Mary had recommended a pub in a nearby village for an evening meal which was excellent. The weather was glorious and the location really good to enjoy the North Cotswolds.

.A memorable weekend

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review from our recent guests who came to celebrate a special birthday with family. They were lucky enough in March to have fabulous weather and this allowed them to enjoy our beautiful secure garden and visit lots of the wonderful area surrounding us in the Cotswolds. Thank you for taking great care of the house and we hope to welcome you all back at house in the near future.

Perfect for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Teachers House is in a small Cotswold village, dating back to mediaeval times, perfectly situated for exploring this lovely part of the English countryside. The house itself is an intriguing up-date of an earlier building(?s) with an attractive garden. It is maintained to a high standard by the owner Mary assisted by Rachel and will be enjoyed by both family groups and adult parties. It was perfect for our family gathering to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Fantastic place, thoroughly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in many ways - location was great, fit the bill and although a little tricky to find in the dark initially it was ideal for what we wanted. As soon as you walk in you are greeted with an impressive decor and brilliant facilities. Lots of space to relax, good kitchen facilities, and lovely dining room. The bedrooms are comfortable and really couldn't say a bad thing about this place.
