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.

Beautifully decorated cottage; the hosts could not have squeezed in another picture or knick knack. Very handy to all sorts of places- Oxford, Cotswolds, Cheltenham, but you will need a car. Very quaint and friendly hamlet where the cottage is.

Beautiful rural location. 100s of acres to walk the dog. Lovely olde worldly Farm house. All of the local pubs serve great food.

Too isolated for us, no pub in the village or shop, we didnt realise it was so far out from Lechlade. But the cottage is comfortable and homely with stuffed cuddly toys everywhere .

We were very lucky to find a property to sleep 4 of us and 3 dogs, in the right location.

Cosy, warm, quaint cottage. Nice village. SUper walks for the dogs. Pleasant host.

A beautiful cottage stocked with everything youd need. Very child friendly (we had our 18mo with us) and looks like it would be very dog friendly as well.

Reviewed by Joanne 26th October 2018

Bedwell Cottage is very homely, with lots of home comforts, a well-equipped kitchen and wood-burner and range. It was peaceful, apart from the odd airplane from RAF Brize Norton, with country walks on the doorstep and quaint towns and villages nearby. Theres lots to do in the area.

Lovely village location. Welcoming, well equipped and cosy cottage. Very comfortable stay.

Reviewed by Antony 21st September 2018

We found the property spacious, clean, warm etc. But on the downside the settee was uncomfortable and needed replacing. Good for dog owners with plenty of walks If you fancy a quirky country cottage full of nick nacks and pictures then this is the one for you.

Reviewed by Dawn 14th September 2018

The cottage was small and cluttered with too much furniture. It was advertised as appropriate for 3 dogs which we had with us and though we managed it wasnt really big enough. However it is well situated to be able to see the area.

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?
