The cottage is fully equipped and very cozy. Although the property lies just off the road, it is very quiet at night and all you can hear in the morning is birdsong. There are fields just behind the building where you can take your dog for a stroll in the morning (we were even provided with wellies for the purpose!). Landlady lives next door and was very helpful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

The owner was very helpful, left us a welcome pack (tea/coffee and biscuits). All comforts catered for. We loved the cottage, as did our cat! We spent two weeks and didn't want to leave. The location, next to a main road, but traffic noise not intrusive. Beautiful area, near Malmesbury. Visited the abbey and the abbey gardens, all worth a visit. Cotswold Water Park also outstanding although directions to the Nature Reserves could have been more prominent. Would recommend to those who like great countryside, peace and quiet, and are happy to be a few miles from the shops!

The accommodation was excellent and the directions were first class, the area was just what was required, quiet!
The only fault was that the accommodation was kitted out with Ikea and was not the most comfortable furniture we have sat or slept in.
Central Location for the Cotswolds

A satisfactory cottage, with one or two points that need attention. Seating not very comfortable; small fridge - should be bigger; television very poor - should be freesat for better picture and more choice. Parking and location very good; Clean and functional
