We loved the cottage and felt at home right away. It had everything we needed and the location was quiet, peaceful and stunningly beautiful. The owners are lovely and it was great to have dog walks so near by and lots of wildlife to spot. We're hoping to return soon as there's so much to see and do in the area.

The cottage is smaller than we anticipated from the online pictures. Its quirky, snug with very small outdoor space. But you have access to huge fields behind and can walk across to nice pub.

It was an old cottage with character. So warm, even when we had a frost outside. I could not work out how to use the convector/ microwave and was happy to just cook on Rayburn even for our toast in the morning, as we didnt find Toaster till last morning, Would have liked to have stayed longer.

Unfortunately not our ideal cottage, although tastes differ. Aircraft noise - intermittent but all hours even in the night; extremely uncomfortable settee's; small, yet comfortable double bed, especially if you are used to a king size; the kitchenware required washing before using. The cottage is warm but tired and worn. A lot of knick knacks and sRead moretuffed toys which makes it dusty. If you like minimal, crisp and clean, near a shop/pub then this is definitely not the cottage for you. Hide

Sadly not our ideal cottage, although we appreciate that tastes and expectations differ. Negatives for us: lack of privacy; aircraft noise - intermittent but up until 12.00 midnight; extremely uncomfortable sofa, too many knick knacks. If you like minimal, then this is definitely not the cottage for you.

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
