  • Pamela was super accommodating of our uncertain arrival time, and the self-contained AirBnB is modern, spacious, thoughtfully maintained and of course set in an absolutely beautiful area of the Cotswolds. Highly recommend!

    Matthew2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had another really enjoyable stay at this property. It is rural, cosy, and equipped with everything you need, including a few special touches! It is very clean, and we had no issues with anything. We hope to stay again in the future.

    Harriet2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Pam's place was wonderful! Her house and her rooms were pretty. She took us to the neareat bus stop in the morning and picked us up in the evening. What is more, she helped us book the nearest pub and the taxi for the last day. Our travel to Costwolds becomes memorable with this airbnb stay!

    Haruka2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela's place is a super spot to stay in the Cotswolds, near to loads of beautiful towns and villages. The house is lovely and comfortable, and we found it full of thoughtful touches such as homemade bread and freshly laid eggs. Highly recommended.

    Nick2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Idyllic getaway and perfect gateway to The Cotswolds. The cottage is beautifully presented and Pamela is the perfect host. We would definitely recommend it and looking forward to revisiting in the summer months. The homemade sourdough bread is delicious!!!

    Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

    Come to our spotlessly clean cottage, up a long driveway, totally private and peaceful and relax in peace and total comfort and peace of mind. You will be able to arrive without any checkin, no contact with anyone, and you can relax in the middle of the most beautiful countryside location. In the middle of nowhere!. Discover the local beautiful Cotswold area. On our doorstep is Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh and all the local Cotswold villages
    Our Cottage has three double bedrooms and a very large bathroom with shower and bath. There is a large kitchen and large sitting room with television including DVD player. The cottage is immaculately clean, and during these times it is perfect for a home from home experience, deep in the countryside and you will have total privacy. For larger numbers of guests there is a one bedroomed cottage that sleeps 2 people less than 10 paces opposite which is let separately. The Cottage has a garden to enjoy. For weekends I book for 4-6 guests rather than smaller numbers as we sleep 6 but for guests of only 4 - I would require a minimum of 2 night stay over weekend unless prior arrangement with Jo
    We live closest to the beautiful Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, with Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold close by too. You should not miss Broadway either! We are also close to Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham
  • This is a wonderful house that has everything you need and is so comfy, cosy and beautifully maintained. We loved our time staying here

    Claire2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Was perfect. The worst part is the review leaving process of Airbnb!

    Christopher2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jo’s place is the perfect place for a group getaway, the cottage is super cosy and Jo couldn’t be more helpful as a host!

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish clean cottage, wonderful stay.

    Max2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is stunning and well put together. Plenty of space to entertain in the evening (we were a group of 6) and the kitchen has everything you’d need to cook a meal. Jo was a great host and responded to all my questions quickly. I will definitely stay at the cottage again and will be recommending others to do so.

    Claire2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jo's place is a exactly as advertised, cosy and quiet surrounded by pretty countryside. We had a relaxing few days exploring the nearby towns and villages then coming back and firing up the log burner. Highly recommend.

    Dale2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jo was a wonderful host, a beautiful, comfortable cottage and her restautant recommendations were fantastic. We absolutely loved everything about our stay!

    Fay2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is just beautiful. It's set in a perfect location - quiet, but also close for trips to places. It's incredibly well decorated and presented and is very cosy. It was very homely. We had everything we needed and Jo and her husband were lovely and so helpful. We wish we could have stayed for longer!!!

    Message to guest regarding COVID-19 Our properties are meticulously cleaned between visits and deep cleaned every month. However, because of the current situation, we have doubled up on this and are using bleach to clean every surface, in particular door handles, floors, kitchens and bathrooms. Generally there are more than 72 hours between bookings so this is helpful. When there isn’t this gap, we are deep cleaning. This means preparing the house may take longer than usual, so we hope our guests will appreciate that they may not be able to check in as early as normal or as has been previously agreed. We will continue to honour all our bookings. We are in a quiet rural and fairly isolated location, so the house is a refuge from the current situation! Our beautiful Cotswold Stone house is traditional designed but with contemporary interiors and facilities. Please contact Stephanie if the dates you want are not listed as available. The house has 6 spacious bedrooms, all ensuite, and all with stunning views. There is a comfortable sitting room with log fireplace and large TV.

No amplifiers are permitted, unless by prior agreement. The house is also available for small weddings receptions and family events. We do not allow weddings with large marquees. We are very excited because we now have ultra fast internet , supposedly 300mbps but of course it's not quite as fast as that in reality. Still it is very fast especially for a rural location.

    Charingworth is a quiet hamlet on the edge of Ebrington. There are fantastic walks nearby, a great local pub and lots to do nearby. The house is in the Cotswolds but also very close tonStratford upon Avon, Oxford and Warwick. The house is located in the middle of the Cotswold countryside. This is a rural location and the nearest village of Ebrington has a farm shop and a village pub. We always knew that our local pub, The Ebrington Arms, was special. Apparently The Times agrees. In 2017 it received the accolade of Best Village Inn and also listed it as one of the in the best summer pubs in the UK. In 2018 The Times again recognised it, by including it in their list of best 50 UK pubs. The pub is a short walk away in Ebrington. It's open all day and serves lunch and dinner (booking recommended) as well as snacks at other times. It also offers a very superior take-away fish and chips service. We are very lucky because we have several really good pubs nearby. The Churchill Arms in Paxford also has to get a special mention for excellent food and service. The chef/owner Nick Deverill-Smith, who used to be head chef at The Dean Street Townhouse (part of the Soho House Group) has appeared on Saturday Kitchen Live alongside Michel Roux. He and his excellent staff run a fantastic establishment. We are very excited to offer an exclusive menu at The Churchill to our guests, including a complimentary bottle of prosecco. Please contact Stephanie for details about how to book this offer. Menu details in the 'Other Things To Note' section. A new farm shop and cafe has recently opened in the nearby village. This is about 20 minutes walk from the house and close to the village pub. Vegetable Matters offers 'fresh local produce and a warm welcome'. There are general stores in Chipping Campden and Shipston-on-Stour which are both within 4 miles of the property. There is a Waitrose in Stratford-upon-Avon which is about 15 minutes drive away. Ideally you will need a car, although, if guests prefer not to drive. they can arrange supermarket deliveries from Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tesco. The house is surrounded by beautiful rural Cotswold countryside with many public footpaths, including The Cotswold Way. There are numerous Cotswold stone villages and towns nearby, including Chipping Campden, Broadway, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Stow-on-the-Wold. It is also close to Stratford-upon-Avon and an ideal location for visiting both the theatre and this historic town. Oxford and Blenheim Palace, in Woodstock, are also only a short drive away.
  • Beautiful house, plenty of room for everyone, amazingly comfy beds, great location with some good walks and local pubs in easy reach. Also great communication. All good thank you!

    Joel2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Stephanie went above and beyond. She bought in some extra touches for our Halloween party, and even left us some Prosecco. The house was gorgeous, the view incredible. Stephanie also helped us find a catering company. Angela Winter and her team were exceptional and very good value for money-I would highly recommend hiring them for a 3 course meal. Victoria and Toby were also amazing bar tenders. No one was ever without a drink in their hand! The area was stunning, and Steph’s recommendation of the Ebenington arms was fab. The roast dinner was delicious. Overall a brilliant stay, very relaxed and a perfect venue. 10 out of 10. Thanks Steph x

    This 300 year old cottage has an abundance of period features, is comfortably furnished and well equipped. There are 2 double bedrooms +single fold down guest bed and a child's cot. The beautiful village of Kingham is just a 30 minutes from Oxford and 90 minutes from London Paddington.
    The village was voted "England's favorite village" by Country life magazine and by the Sunday Times newspaper, as one of England's best places to live and most fashionable place to live in the UK, it has its own station with services in to London Paddington (90 mins) and Oxford (30 mins), there are two great traditional pub's/restaurants in the village, the Michelin star Wild Rabbit pub was voted pub of the year 2015 by the Michelin Guide and reviewed by the Daily Mail as England's poshest pub. The Kingham Plough is an award wining gastro pub, reviewed by the late AA Gill, the former Sunday Times food critic....." the kitchen is a serious restaurant work place. The bar menu is as fine as any Ive seen, any one thinking of opening a local pub restaurant should come here and see the gold standard ". All are within a short walk from the cottage. Also near by is the renowned Dailsford organic farm and spa. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside, great for long walks and being the very hart of the Cotswold's, close to many places of historic interest.
    Great little village, nestling in the very hart of the Cotswold's, one of England's areas of outstanding natural beauty and historic significance, there is a local village shop/post office, were you can get cash back over the counter, 3 great places to eat or just have a drink, all have nice outside spaces to enjoy in the sunshine and log fires, lovely village green with small play area and public transport. SO A CAR IS NOT ABSOLUTLY NECESSARY.

    Kingham, England, United Kingdom

    In the heart of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, converted from an old farm building in a contemporary style with inglenook fireplace and private garden with barbecue - perfect for all seasons. Available for family events and celebrations, including hen and stag weekends. Within walking distance of The Times Best Village Inn. Nearest town Chipping Campden. Close to Daylesford, Soho Farmhouse, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Bicester Village and countless Cotswold villages.
    COVID-19 information Our properties are meticulously cleaned between visits and deep cleaned every month. However, because of the current situation, we have doubled up on this and are using bleach to clean every surface, in particular door handles, floors, kitchens and bathrooms. Generally there are more than 72 hours between bookings so this is helpful. When there isn’t this gap, we are deep cleaning. This means preparing the house may take longer than usual, so we hope our guests will appreciate that they may not be able to check in as early as normal or as has been previously agreed. We will continue to honour all our bookings. We are in a quiet rural and fairly isolated location, so the house is a refuge from the current situation! The Apple Barn is a recently converted farm building which was originally used to store fruit and vegetables. It combines the traditional features of stone and oak floors and beams, with contemporary fixtures and fittings. We are very excited because we now have ultra fast internet , supposedly 300mbps but of course it's not quite as fast as that in reality. Still, it is very fast especially for a rural location. The house can comfortably accommodate a large family or group of friends that don't mind sharing. There are plenty of extra beds available, but obviously the more beds you add, the more snug the accommodation becomes and the more people sharing the 3 bathrooms. There are 2 good sized ensuite bedrooms on the first floor and a further 2 -bedroom family suite with one ensuite bathroom on the second floor. PLEASE NOTE - these 2 bedrooms are conjoined so they make up one large space and are therefore ideal for a family or people that don't mind sharing. The first floor bedrooms have king sized beds (5 foot). Bedroom 1 has a king size bed and a single bed. There is also space in this room for an additional fold up bed. (2 extra beds if you don't mind very little space between beds). Bedroom 2 also has space for 2 additional fold up bed, but the space is snug with the extra beds in situ. The beds on the second floor are Queen (4ft 6") and four single beds. There is room in Bedroom 3 for an additional fold up bed and we have even managed to fit 2 extra beds in here, although it's a tight fit. There is a large double sofa bed in the sitting room. Cots and highchairs are also available. I'm happy for up 16 people plus infants and pets to stay and there is enough room to seat 16 in the dining room, but it will make the common areas more of a squeeze, especially in the winter when the garden will be less usable. There are enough beds for 16-18 but you should be aware that the accommodation would be very snug if you had that many people sharing the facilities. Please note that the second floor bedrooms are accessed via a spiral staircase so not suitable for those with mobility difficulties or very young children (see photo) The ground floor is open-plan with a large sitting room, kitchen and dining room. There is a large inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with log-burning stove, TV, DVD player, iPod connectable stereo (via aux cable or old style jack) and football table. The kitchen is well appointed with range cooker, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, breakfast bar. and Smart TV. The dining room has a long refectory table with seating for 16 people. There is also a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer and downstairs cloakroom. All rooms are served by wireless broadband. There are two outside areas. At the front of the property there is a lawned area with terrace. To the side is a very private circular terrace with dining area and parasol. This is a particular sun trap and effectively creates an outdoor dining room in fine weather. We provide you with tea and coffee, salt and pepper, sugar and cooking oil. We also give you washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, fabric conditioner, foil, kitchen roll, clingfilm and loo rolls. At Christmas there will be a real Christmas tree and all winter there is a plentiful supply of logs for the wood burner. The bathrooms have towels and face cloths, soap, bath soak, shampoo and conditioner. There is also a hairdryer, iron and ironing board. We don't expect you to use it but there is a vacuum cleaner and some basic cleaning products.

  • The Apple Barn is a beautiful place to stay and really well equipped for groups. Stephanie went above and beyond to help with anything we needed and we really enjoyed the stay.

    Rosie2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The Apple Barn is such a sweet place to stay - full of local Cotswolds charm and cosy. We enjoyed a walk into Ebrington (including pub!) and the country air was most welcome! Stephanie was communicative and accommodating - very easy to deal with but also let us get on and enjoy our stay. We all had a wonderful weekend!

    Carly2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Apple Barn was a lovely venue for a hen do of 12 and perfect for what we wanted. Stephanie was extremely friendly and helpful and more than happy to offer tips on the area.

    Helen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great family vacation

    Steven2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely property - we really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and was deceptively spacious. It managed to accommodate our extended family of ten adults, five children and three dogs - albeit with a bit of 'open plan' sleeping quarters upstairs. We especially liked the downstairs layout with an open plan lounge and kitchen and long dining table in a separate room which created a great space for our group to gather, talk, cook and eat together.

    Robert2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Apple Barn is very spacious with everything you need. Located not too far from pubs and visitor attractions. Stephanie was very helpful as our arrival was delayed and we were expecting a shopping delivery, she was very flexible and offered to bring our shopping in it go there before us (it didn't). All rooms are very clean.

    Julia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The house is lovely! Exactly as it looks in the pictures, lots of space for everyone and loads of beautiful walks to do in the area. We had a great time!

    Evey2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and a group of old school friends stayed at the Apple Barn recently, Stephanie was extremely helpful and made the whole process very smooth. The barn itself is beautiful and we were very comfortable, we walked to the local pub and enjoyed a fantastic meal. We hope to be back again next year.

    Not a country cottage so no low ceilings, dark rooms and draughts..just well insulated and thoughtfully designed cabin with large windows to take advantage of the views. Definitely not glamping either as full facilities. Not located on a picture postcard street, just in large garden at end of quiet cul de sac but with main road running behind cabin. No struggle to find parking as ample space in own courtyard. Priced so I can afford to include all the little extras that guests value.
    Visiting on own or as a couple then enjoy Super King bed but easily splits into twins. Space in bedroom for cot and single folding bed or double inflatable mattress available for use in Sitting Room. Might be a bit cosy but great if only for a night or two. I have furnished in shabby chic style but with quality items all repurposed to create comfortable but functional environment. Love this quote left in visitor book "You close the door behind you and you've entered a secluded little retro world" You want a bit of peace and quiet well that is relative as most of my guests are escaping town life so find it very tranquil and scarcely notice road that runs at back of property. Others notice at first but soon realise view is more of a distraction especially when dining alfresco or enjoying the stars due to village Dark Sky status. Do remind guests that will need a torch when walking back from excellent Red Lion as no street lights. Having family members with disabilities I am aware of problems finding suitable accommodation so have designed with that in mind - not the complete set up but Octogenarian wheelchair bound friend stayed and he and wife found perfect for their needs. No sumptuous cottage garden - I'm the gardener so have to be realstic. Managed to save a few mature trees during build process in 2015 and much new planting that will be magnificent in couple of years but in meantime my natural border does include grasses and thistles as after all a weed is only a plant in wrong place and bees and butterflies love. Also have bird feeders and nesting box just outside bedroom window and blue tits particuarly love. Have thought about privacy carefully as their are occupants in main property but layout has been thought through to ensure everyone has own space without infringement on others enjoyment. Have had usual trials with IT but now have cabled connection to router and reliable service. Though most of my guests seem to really enjoy 'turning phones off' and listening to late Aunt's eclectic vinyl collection on multi media player. Similarly there is a TV but not dominant plasma screen just one discreetly tucked into corner. Have had guests for long term stays so always happy to discuss options if you need a base while working away or if between house sales.
    Little Bulpits (field for Bulls) was Old English field name of field before development and hence unusual name for this property. Long Compton is a charming Cotswold Village located in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and excellent walking area (MacMillan Way). On A3400 with Oxford and Stratford on Avon both 20 miles. The Rollright Stones are located on edge of parish. There is a well stocked village shop 5 minutes walk away and popular village pub 10 minutes walk. Local towns are Chipping Norton, Moreton in Marsh and Shipston on Stour. Whichford Pottery, Cotswold Distillery and Hook Norton Brewery located in neighbouring villages. Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Chipping Campden, Stow on the Wold, Daylesford Farm Shop, Blenheim Palace and Compton Verney Art Gallery are both within half an hours drive
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Little Bulpits. We booked as it is close by to the Cotswolds Distillery and we were able to walk there from the property. Elizabeth is a thoughtful host and was very welcoming - the accommodation has everything needed for a comfortable stay.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Little Bulpits. Everything was as described and we really appreciated the "extras" left for us by our host. Communication was excellent. We found it to be a relaxing and peaceful retreat - comfortable accommodation for two people self catering, and enjoyed good nights sleep after our daily excursions! Location is ideally placed for day trips to Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, Blenheim Palace and the many small villages of interest in the area. Would love to stay again when in the area.

    Catherine2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely venue, good base to visit places.

    Peter2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth’s house is very warm and clean. She is so kind and thoughtful, leaving breakfast ready, shampoos and creams to use. She also helps the environment by allowing guests to separate and recycle their trash (sorry for figuring it out late). Would recommend it in a heartbeat.

    Florencia2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Little Bulpits is the perfect cosy hideaway to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! Excellent amenities both at the property and nearby. Lovely personal touches throughout making it very cosy and comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer and will be back! We absolutely loved it here and Elizabeth is an amazing host. Thank you!

    Lucy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cabin in a beautiful location and a very thoughtful host! We will be back!

    A cosy Shepherd Hut, named Ronald, set in 60 acres of tranquil Cotswold countryside. Glamping at its finest with all the comforts of home in the great outdoors. Conveniently located 5 minutes drive from Moreton in Marsh, with direct train links to Oxford and London. Durhams Farm is home to over 30 much-loved horses and ponies. Horse riding experiences are available whilst you stay. The perfect location for couples, adventurers and equine enthusiasts.
    Camping may not be at the top of everyone’s list during the winter months but Ronald is a very reasonable alternative. We’ve kitted him out with hot and cold running water, heating and electricity too, so you can relax and enjoy all of the comforts of home, in the great outdoors. Ronald has a comfy fitted double bed, with storage underneath and all of your bed linen and towels are provided. The kitchenette is stocked with crockery and cutlery, a kettle, an electric single hob, toaster, fridge and sink. There is private seating outside your hut with beautiful views surrounding. Great for stargazing and the sunsets at the farm are beautiful. During the winter months, radiators will be added to keep you warm. There is a heated shower room a short walk (25metres) from the Huts in a blue cabin. Here, guests have shared (max 4 guests at any one time) access to a shower, WC and sink. Ideal for couples, friends and solo travellers! We have two huts available at Durhams - great for group trips! Apologies, we do not accept bookings for young children (under 10) and/or pets. Wifi is not available in the Hut but can be accessed on the farm all day. Visit the riding school reception to connect your device.
    Our Shepherd Hut is set in a stunning part of the Cotswolds within easy reach of picturesque towns such as Bourton on the Water and Stow on the Wold. Stratford upon Avon, Cheltenham and Warwick are both within a 40 minute drive. There are miles of bridleways and footpaths to explore in the surrounding area and some great local pubs and restaurants. Daylesford Organic is 3 miles away too and well worth a visit whilst you stay.
  • Something different! We had a really special time and I was surprised at all the amenities that could fit into a small place but still look stylish and minimalistic

    Georgie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my partner stayed in “Ronald” and I can’t recommend it enough! Parking was plentiful, check-in super easy, the amenities were clean and everyone around the site was very friendly. It was a little muddy on the yard so take wellies in rainy weather, but the hut itself is very cosy, warm and safe, and had lots of thoughtful touches such as blankets, hot water bottles and even little games to play when we were indoors. We got to wake up to stunning views over countryside and of Chastleton house, and the farm has plenty of animals to see! Really enjoyable couple of days, thank you 😊

    Rachel2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cabin for a weekend's writing!

    Mark2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely stay, as described completely, was lovely and warm when we got there. Little touches such as tea bags which we forgot, thanks for having us! Take wellies!

    Caroline2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Ronald. The hut was so well equipped. Really clean and in such a pretty location! Highly reccommend!

    Naomi2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ronald was just what I needed for a quiet weekend in the countryside! Sparkling clean, quiet and a lovely little haven. Can’t recommend enough.

    Catherine2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Small and cosy hut in a field next to a farm and riding centre. It is winter and I went with my toddler but it was so warm. Little portable stove, fridge,kettle and toaster were great to cook on. We arrived at night and woke up in the morning to pretty view of fields and the sound of ducks, chickens and guinea fowl running around. Lots of outside space to play though it was too wet when we were there. Best thing for us was popping into the horse riding centre 30m away and having a couple of little rides for my kid (additional cost) The guys were brilliant and it was lots of fun. I’d definitely come again! Bathroom is in the horse riding centre but v clean and private for the 2 huts. Take a torch and wellies!!

    Emma2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

  • What a super cottage. We had a fabulous time. Possibly we shouldn’t have brought a 6’6” friend to stay in an old cotswold cottage though, beware the low ceilings!

    Sarah2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming Cotswold cottage, very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Its situation in Long Compton is ideal for touring the Cotswolds, most places being within a 30 minute drive. A good local Pub, The Red Lion is ideal if you dont want to cook for yourselves, but the Kitchen has everything we needed to cater for a family of 5 for over 6 days! Well recommended

    Ray2019-10-01T00:00:00Z

    Marie-Clare2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a lovely village location. The house was very clean with everything we needed. We had a brilliant girly weekend. We did a lovely 3 mile walk to Cotswolds Distillery and had an excellent meal at the red lion pub just down the road. Would highly recommend.

    Beth2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spacious cottage, great location for exploring the area. Great amenities. Would highly recommend.

    Amanda2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • A great cottage that's surprisingly spacious, light and airy. Good access to the Cotswolds. Lots of little details (books and DVDs for the little one) and very clean. A lovely stay!

    Mark2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage in the Cotswalds for a great price. Beautiful inside and out with all the modern touches you could want. Great division of space, and extremely large master bedroom. Responses were super quick via AirBNB and phone. Side note: If you're tall (over 5'-10" or 178 cm) be prepared to duck a lot as the construction of the cottage did not allow for much in the way of ceiling height. I'm 6'-1" (185 cm) and had to duck walking through almost all spaces of the house and hit my head a number of times on beams and doorways. However, even that didn't really affect my thoughts on this quintessential English cottage.

  • Charming little place - exceeded our expectations. Just the right blance of rustic charm and mod cons... comfortable beds and sofas, with a well equipped modern kitchen. The living room is gorgeous, and was perfect for curling up in front of the fire after a day of sightseeing. There was a little road noise at times, but this didn't bother us as the traffic disappears between 10pm to 8pm... in any case, there is perfectly comfortable annexe (with it's own sitting and shower rooms) you can sleep in away from the cottage if the noise were to bother you. Would happily use again - highly recommended.

    Darren2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home, perfect for a quiet getaway with a group in the Cotswolds! Plenty of character. Parking on the road was a little tricky as we had a few different cars and the neighbours didn’t seem thrilled about it... but Nick was very clear with check-in and everything else went smoothly.

    Jasmine2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house and great hospitality.

    Laura2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Jo2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Stone Walls Cottage was lovely for a weekend getaway in The Cotswolds! Fit 5 of us comfortably, and the wood for the fire was a wonderful touch. Would definitely visit again!

    Valerie2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • A really charming home. It's in a village so not too isolated but still quiet and peaceful. There's plenty of space and just the right mix of old (cosy sitting room) and modern (kitchen, bathroom). We had everything we needed for a weekend trip and felt very at home. We didn't use the annex as there were only three of us but it's great if you have a larger group with kids who may need their own space. Lots to do nearby, best to have a car though. Overall I would highly recommend this property as a base for exploring the Northern part of the Cotswolds.

    Marta2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    GemBob2019-06-02T00:00:00Z

The pub is a 10 minute walk and has a very friendly atmosphere. 2 large accommodation spaces - 3rd bedroom a bit small with twin beds but all in all a very good find.

There are several footpaths from the village, and two national cycle routes pass through the village, making this an ideal spot for outdoor enthusiasts. The many picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds are also all within easy reach, as are other attractions such as Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!

The front door opens into a small porch, which leads through to the well laid out ground floor area: Living/dining room: A lovely, characterful room, with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, which contains a two-seater sofa, two armchairs and a window seat (microfibre cushions are provided). The comfortable dining area in the corner of the room has a round table and seating for four people. There is a SMART TV with a DVD/Blu-ray player, and a DAB digital radio with a wireless smartphone connection; Kitchen: Looking out to the garden, the well presented kitchen contains an electric oven with four-ring induction hob, fridge with ice box, slimline dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere, Dualit coffee machine (compatible with Nespresso capsules), electric coffee percolator and milk frother.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Great place to stay, sparkling clean and very homely. Also great location for exploring nearby villages. There was everything we needed and some very thoughtful touches.

Would highly recommend staying at Cosy Corner for an authentic Cotswold stay.

  • If you are looking for peace and still want the comfort of a fully equipped apartment, this is right. House and garden were perfect for me. Very well equipped and cozy, excellent to feel at home and nothing to miss. I stayed here for three weeks and would have liked to renew.

    Leonard2019-10-04T00:00:00Z

    Barbara2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t thank Jane and Nigel enough for their communication throughout our stay if we needed them, nothing was a problem for them. The cottage itself was stunning and by far the best accommodation we have stayed in so far on our travels. The location is perfect being close enough to the many idyllic Cotswolds villages but nice and quiet to come home to at night time. Thank you Jane and Nigel, will definitely stay here again

    Chipping Norton, better known as "Chippy" by locals, is a well-known market town in the Cotswolds which has been runner up in the Great British High Street awards for small market town for the last two years. Once the site of a Norman castle, the town is the highest in Oxfordshire and has a number of notable buildings to visit. The Town Hall proudly marks the days when the town was a Borough. It was built in 1842 and used to host the poultry and butter markets on Wednesdays, as well as the Corn Exchange. It was also used for entertainment and auctions and lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of a bride and groom as the hall is licensed for weddings. A picturesque row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages can be found in the town which were once almshouses given to Chippy by puritan Henry Cornish. The almshouses are set back from the road and are entered through a grand archway which has elaborate finials and cresting. Another standout building is Bliss Mill. It dates back to the 1870s and was once used in the manufacturing of wool and tweed for cloth manufacturer William Bliss. The mill was designed to look like a country house, but has the large chimney at one end for which it is recognised. It is now a Grade II listed building and was converted into luxury apartments in the 1980s. Being a relatively small town, it comes as a surprise to many to find a theatre in Chipping Norton. The team put on an array of productions including theatre, music, comedy and the annual pantomime. As well as live performances, the theatre also screens a range of classic, art house and foreign language films. Food & Drink As one of the main market towns in the Cotswolds, Chipping Norton has a wide variety of places to eat and drink, catering for most tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample, to give a flavour for the various options available: Wild Thyme Restaurant (www.wildthymerestaurant.co.uk): Offering exciting modern British food and relaxed friendly service, complemented by three stylish rooms, this is a special place to enjoy great food and wine with family and friends. The Chequers (www.chequers-pub.com): The Chequers was built in medieval times at the entrance to the market place and is thought to date back to the late 1500s as a pub, when it was identified by a sign of a blue anchor outside. The main bar is situated amongst four seating areas. In the absence of any electronic games machines, pool tables or juke boxes, the traditional pub styling of yesteryear is recalled. A blazing log fire in the winter creates a cosy atmosphere. There is also a separate restaurant area. Whistlers Café Bar & Restaurant (www.whistlersrestaurant.co.uk): The owners of Whistlers are passionate about food and passionate about entertaining. Open during the day as well as for evening meals, Whistlers has a range of breakfasts, through to lighter snacks and lunchtime treats, as well as a great range of hot drinks and cakes to help you while away the hours. Café Le Raj (www.cafeleraj.net): A contemporary Indian restaurant, where top quality ingredients and fragrant herbs and spices are used to create sumptuous dishes. Chipping Norton also has many food shops, ranging from small, family run places, to a Co-op and a Sainsbury's.
  • Beautiful cottage with very thoughtful touches, including breakfast supplies and a lovely homemade cake for us on arrival. Would highly recommend!

    Daniel2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Garden Cottage is charming, pristine clean and has everything necessary for a comfortable home from home stay. The cottage was cosy, warm and welcoming and I loved the wood burner. Communication with Alison was immediate and she contacted me shortly after my arrival to make sure that all was well. Using the lockbox was straightforward. I didn’t have any difficulty finding a space in the residents car park. I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

    Rose2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Vanessa2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is very comfortable and clean, with everything you could possibly need, and in a great location in Chipping Norton. There was even a lovely lemon cake left for us! Check in and all communications were smooth and easy. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again- thank you for such a wonderful time!

    Denise2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house felt more like a home, warm, full of all the essentials you would need. The decor was cosy and country, perfect for a break in the Cotswolds. The location was perfect with a short walk to most sights and pubs. The hosts were fab and only to happy to help. Parking was only a 2min walk from the property and everyone was so friendly. We enjoyed spending time in the house as so warm and homely. 2 sofas to make watching films and drinking wine very easy. Thoroughly recommend!

The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Quaint, quiet and comfortable, just what I was looking for!

    M J2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage in a very quiet village. Beautifully decorated with super comfy beds. Although there are no amenities directly in the village there are plenty of lovely walks (which can be found in the books in the lounge) nearby. The welcome goodies mean you don’t have to rush to the shop and can build a trip into your day, as anything is a short drive or walk away. We really enjoyed our stay here, such a perfect break away from the hustle and bustle! Would definitely book again.

    Emma2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Character Cottage is a quiet and peaceful place in Sutton, not far from Stratford's small town near Shakespeare's home. Self-driving is recommended, parking is possible. As it is winter, there are few tourists. The rest was good, the cottage kitchen was well-equipped, and the host warmly prepared eggs, milk, bread and butter for us. The bedroom is on the second floor. Although small, it is very welcoming. The bathrooms are great, with romantic bathtubs and comfortable shower rooms.

    红丽(Jennifer)2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Honeysuckle cottage is an amazing stay! It is cute and cozy. We got everything we needed to stay comfortably. Everything was very clean and they provided us with milk, bread, butter and eggs. And special thanks to Chris for helping us out when our car got stuck at the parking spot. He was quick to respond and easy to communicate. We arrived at night (it was very dark) and didn’t realize we accidentally ran over a small rock n got stuck. 😂 Luckily it was okay. Overall, it was a perfect stay!

    Farah Liyana2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic property in a stunning location, and it was super easy to find! Really enjoyed the surrounding countryside and had useful tips from the host on the local area. Definitely recommend this Airbnb.

    Thomas2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great company. Very responsive, very helpful. Can not fault them and will definitely use them again ❤️

    Joni2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for an idyllic little cottage to get away from it all, this is the place for you. The ling room is perfectly cosy and both bedrooms offer good sized beds which the host asked before arrival if we'd like making up as twin or double rooms. The bath is great for relaxing in after a long walk and the kitchen is sufficient enough to fully self cater. The cottage is managed by a larger company and, as I found out subsequently, it's cheaper to book direct than via this website. Also, they charge £20 to bring a dog (hidden away in the Ts & Cs on this site) but I can't see what that extra charge provided. The nearest pub (The George) is 1.6 miles away and serves some excellent food and drink in a classic, dog friendly, pub environment. All in all, a great little find and we'd definitely return.

    Suneil2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful weekend away in this beautiful cottage. Perfect for 4 of us and so many lovely little towns to explore. Thank you!

  • We spent 10 days in Churchill. The accommodation was perfect on every level. It was such a pleasure to be there... spacious, well equipped, beautifully furnished and decorated, beautiful location. It could not have been better and we were sorry to leave.

    Tina2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • All your home comforts, set in a very chic barn conversion, makes for a delightful countryside getaway. Tom (the owner who lives in the main house across the way) was very welcoming, and very knowledgable about the local area. The downstairs is a particularly lovely space, with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, and a very comfortable living room with doors that open onto a great outdoor patio and garden. If we had had a little more sun across the weekend we definitely would have given the BBQ a go! The large bedrooms are complimented by en suite bathrooms, both of which have been done to a very high standard. We will definitely be back!

    Vivienne2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Brian2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely little cottage, ideal for 2 people! the location is amazing being just a stones throw away from some great pubs, and Daylesford Farm.

  • I visited for a couple of days with my family and we had a wonderful stay. The place is as shown in the images - even better when you're in it. The living space is bright, spacious and well furnished - with plenty of books and games to entertain the family. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you'd need to cater for your family. The bedrooms are cosy with storage and the beds are comfortable. Communication with the host was easy and quick. Checking in was easy as per instructions provided. We checked in during daylight and I would recommend you do too as you may miss the property at night. Highly recommended and my family are already talking about another stay here.

    Nima2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful house located in the countryside with amazing views. the upside down house is a perfect place to stay and I would definitely return to this beautiful house. Thank you so much for making it a very pleasant stay!

    Lauren2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • 3 friends & I has a lovely long weekend at The Granary. The cottage was very spacious, with very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, lovely open dining/lounge space & very nice grounds outside. The shower pressure was also amazing. The house is easy to find by following Google maps & is within close driving distance to all the cute Cotswolds towns. Daylesford Farm is a must do if you're a foodie, with great restaurants, jams & preserves & a zero waste shop! Coming to the area in November was a great idea as it's not too cold yet, but the colours of the trees were amazing & the pubs are so cosy. We had a lovely time.

    Felicity2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

    Chipping Norton, better known as "Chippy" by locals, is a well-known market town in the Cotswolds which has been runner up in the Great British High Street awards for small market town for the last two years. Once the site of a Norman castle, the town is the highest in Oxfordshire and has a number of notable buildings to visit. The Town Hall proudly marks the days when the town was a Borough. It was built in 1842 and used to host the poultry and butter markets on Wednesdays, as well as the Corn Exchange. It was also used for entertainment and auctions and lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of a bride and groom as the hall is licensed for weddings. A picturesque row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages can be found in the town which were once almshouses given to Chippy by puritan Henry Cornish. The almshouses are set back from the road and are entered through a grand archway which has elaborate finials and cresting. Another standout building is Bliss Mill. It dates back to the 1870s and was once used in the manufacturing of wool and tweed for cloth manufacturer William Bliss. The mill was designed to look like a country house, but has the large chimney at one end for which it is recognised. It is now a Grade II listed building and was converted into luxury apartments in the 1980s.
  • We had an amazing stay at the Smithy! The location was excellent, a stone's throw away from some lovely pubs and a little high street. The house was beautiful and had everything you could think of including some handy bits of food for cooking ! Also we had lots of info provided regarding parking, check in check out etc. So everything was super clear and they replied to any questions really quickly. Would definitely recommend to anyone!!

    Caroline2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Smithy was the perfect cottage for us - a lovely, welcoming place to stay, spotless and with everything you needed to hand. It was in a great location for easily walking to the shops and pubs of Chipping Norton, but also well located for beautiful walks into the Cotswolds countryside.

    Nick2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, perfect location. Charming walks from our doorstep. Sweet thoughtful touches like fresh flowers. Couldn't speak higher of it.

    Katherine2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this lovely house in the centre of Chipping Norton. It had great extra touches such as fresh milk being provided for us so we could have a cup of tea on arrival. There was a coffee machine and plenty of tea facilities provided. Local facilities were good with a nice pub just a short walk up the road and there is also a Sainsbury’s within a short walking distance. The house has WiFi available and a smart TV. There was a main bathroom upstairs with a bath and good overhead shower, plus the downstairs toilet. Dependent on arrival times (we arrived on the Friday evening when the locals pubs and restaurants were busy), you may need to drive around for a while looking for a suitable parking spot as there are no dedicated parking options for the house. However if you avoid arriving at peak times there should be plenty of nearby parking available. A great stay in a lovely village and would definitely return!

  • Great little cottage, gorgeously decorated and with everything we needed (except a freezer which we didn't check before buying ice cream!). Really cosy and comfortable, especially with the wood burner. Tha ks for a lovely stay.

    Sarah2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    Emma2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to explore the Cotswolds from and return to each evening.

    Sam2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful! We loved it so much. The village is adorable and quite near everything we wanted to visit. There was a lovely market in the town square the day we arrived. Check-in was easy, the cottage is absolutely lovely and felt like home. The floors were a bit squeaky but we loved it! Unfortunately, we got a flat tire when we pulled in and they weren’t able to bring us a spare (no spares in European rentals for some unknown reason). We weren’t able to get a new car until late the next day. And even though that bummed us out, we couldn’t have had a better place to be lazy in while we waited! There’s plenty of places to eat and a small grocery right around the corner. We drove into Stow on the Wold for dinner at The Porch House (it was terrific!).

    Heather2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cottage in a beautiful spot. Really convenient for an amble to the pub and quaint shops of Morton. Would definitely stay again.

It was also used for entertainment and auctions and lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of a bride and groom as the hall is licensed for weddings. A picturesque row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages can be found in the town which were once almshouses given to Chippy by puritan Henry Cornish. The almshouses are set back from the road and are entered through a grand archway which has elaborate finials and cresting. Another standout building is Bliss Mill. It dates back to the 1870s and was once used in the manufacturing of wool and tweed for cloth manufacturer William Bliss. The mill was designed to look like a country house, but has the large chimney at one end for which it is recognised. It is now a Grade II listed building and was converted into luxury apartments in the 1980s.
  • Small cottage in a quiet location, the cottage was precisely as described. We knew to expect only one bathroom. A short walk to central Chipping Norton communication was great.

  • A great cottage in a perfect location near the centre of Chipping Norton. The cottage has been renovated to a high spec, with really good facilities, great little kitchen, good bathroom and even a useful utility room. The rooms are all a good size, and the beds comfy! If over 6 foot, You will need to watch your head when going into the bathroom and bedrooms, and the stairs are a little awkward to come down as the beams are quite low at the bottom. There are great finishing touches throughout which are really lovely to see and made our stay really enjoyable. It's just a short walk to the Theatre and lots of pubs/restaurants and take-aways. We had no trouble parking outside each night, but you do get a permit to park in the premier inn car park which we didn't ever need to use.

The property will be deep-cleaned with bleach-based products before you arrive. Change-over staff are monitored for coronavirus symptoms. Long Compton has an elderly population, so self-isolation essential.

The popular Red Lion pub has an excellent menu & superb ales.
  • Byeways was a warm and cozy retreat for our winter getaway weekend. There were three of us traveling together and we all enjoyed our rooms (the duvet in the downstairs bedroom is heaven!). The character of the cottage made our weekend away from London even more special. We especially enjoyed our evenings around the gas hearth in the comfy wingbacks and sofa after our ramblings through the Cotswolds. Donovan is a very responsive and helpful host and we all highly recommend it.

    Laurie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • The Thatch was a lovely place to stay. Ideally located for visiting the surrounding area. Great that it has off street parking.

    Ali2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Thatch proved to be the perfect home base for my family's trip to the Cotswolds! It's a picturesque cottage, with a big, open hearth – perfect for fires at night. Even though it's small, there was plenty of room for the five of us. Plus, the whole place was spotless. We even cooked dinner one night and found every tool we needed in the kitchen. The only tricky part was getting there; use the step-by-step directions they send beforehand, because the exact location doesn't show up on the Google Maps. I'm not even sure if there's an address, to be honest. It's also about an hour drive to the bigger towns in the area, but we didn't mind – it's perfect if you're looking for a peaceful country getaway outside the hustle and bustle of London. Would definitely stay again!

    Meg2018-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is just a fabulous rental. Don't think rental country cottage - think luxury cottage set in the grounds of the local Ritz Carlton if you want to have a sense of the quality of the interior and linens provided. It really was like staying in one of the better international five star hotels.

Between them they offer a wide range of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms to enjoy, along with a number of attractions to discover, such as the Model Village and Cotswold Motoring and Toy Museum in Bourton and the historic sights of Stow with its market square, old town stocks and medieval cross.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • A fantastic stay at Bunt Barn for my husband’s 30th birthday with family. The barn is beautiful and stylish and in a great location. We walked down the track into Stow. Would definitely stay again. Thank you!

The barn is very comfortable and well equipped, with great amenities and in a good location for walks to Stow and beyond. Communication with the team was swift and efficient, with helpful information and tips. Would definitely recommend and would love to return in the future!

    The Barn is a pretty Cotswold-stone building in a quiet village. A great base for relaxing & visiting the Cotswolds, Oxford, Blenheim Palace or Bicester Village. Just 5 minutes drive from the historic market town of Chipping Norton, with plenty of shops & relaxing coffee stops. The village pub is 5 minutes walk. In winter a log burner makes it cosy. There are footpaths 'from the door' and great mountain & road biking too. We love welcoming UK and international guests & business people.
    There is a small kitchenette area with kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave but no oven or hob. We provide several types of tea and ground coffee as well as cereals, fresh milk and bread or Hot Cross Buns to help you start the day. The Barn is a detached building with its own entrance. Whilst The Barn dates back to the late 1700's, it's been fully renovated and is light and airy. In the summertime, you can pin back the french doors to enjoy sitting in the sunshine. You'll be staying in a wonderful rural location but with great access to many interesting, historic and iconic locations such as Blenheim Palace. Other local attractions include Daylesford Organic, Soho Farmhouse and, if you like shopping, the famous Bicester Village is only about 30 mins away. Our village pub - The Salford Inn - is just 5 minutes walk down the hill. It's recently been beautifully renovated with Cotswold stone with original beams on show. The chef serves light meals and daily specials. For those who love walking and biking, you'll have great access directly from The Barn to fantastic Cotswolds countryside. This is what a previous guest, Patrick said: "Can't say enough good things about staying at "The Barn". If you get the chance, stay here! We had such an amazing time, definitely the highlight of our trip to the UK! You went way above and beyond and we hope to be able to come stay again one day" The kingsize bed has a John Lewis Natural Collection pocket sprung mattress and the bed base has drawers for extra storage. There are both firm and medium pillows for you to choose from. A previous guest, Adam, said this: "Thank you for a great couple of days away from the city. We loved everything about our stay in The Barn. The location, the fire, the breakfast and probably the comfiest bed we’ve ever slept in." One of our previous guests, Charlotte, said "Nell & Tim are so friendly and helpful - would 100% recommend their gorgeous little place to anyone looking for a base in The Cotswolds area!" Our central location in the country means that we regularly welcome business people to The Barn. We have good WiFi and there's a round table to work at if needed. Our Keysafe gives flexibility in accessing The Barn if you're running late.
    You will never be short of stunning sights and unforgettable days out when you visit this part of the world! The pre-historic settlement called The Rollright Stones, dates back to 4,000BC and is just a few minutes away by car (slightly longer by footpath!). The local market town just 5 minutes away - Chipping Norton - was an important wool centre from the Middle Ages, with Bliss Mill a wonderful local landmark. There's a busy market in the town every Wednesday and once a month on Saturday's there's also a Farmer's Market where all sorts of local produce and crafts are available for sale. For something a little bit more 'upmarket' Daylesford Organic Farm Shop is just a few miles away, as well as the Michelin Star 'Wild Rabbit' which serves high quality seasonal and local food.
  • The Barn is really comfortable, Nell and Tim are friendly hosts who provide lovely extra touches such as fresh breakfast items. We only stayed for a night but it would make a great base for exploring the area

    Carolyn2020-03-17T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful, large cottage in wonderful Cotswolds village. Spotlessly clean and lots of amenities. Good for children with built in stair gates and high chairs, etc. Check in of 4pm is quite late though and there was no flexibility when we stayed. Otherwise would highly recommend.

    Ian2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage in a super location. Super cosy when the weather was awful! Close to a lovely village pub and lots of Cotswold villages to explore nearby

    Katie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely beautiful cottage for a perfect getaway in the countryside. The house is stunning, with everything you need and a cosy fireplace. It’s situated in a great location with a wonderful pub just down the road. Couldn’t recommend this cottage more!

    Jenny2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic space in a lovely Cotswolds town. Very cosy for the colder months!

    Julian2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage with a lot of quirks. The original spiral suitcase is a little scary so definitely not suitable to those with mobility issues or children. Lovely garden and kitchen and the rooms were very comfy. NB you need a car as it is very remote and not near any shops or ATMs

    Johara2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, gorgeous outdoor space for meals in the terrace behind the garden. Very low ceilings though!

    Steph2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous little country cottage in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds. Churchill is a beautiful village with an amazing pub that you must visit. There are some great walks and I would recommend taking a stroll over to the village of Kingham too. The owners really have thought of everything and the only downside will be when you have to leave !

    Sharon2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very charming and perfectly located to visit Daylesford and other local amenities that we wanted to see
