Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2010. Definitely the best place we have stayed in in England. Sharon Young-Lai (Canada).

July 2010. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Julie Ahay Cornwall.

Nov 2009. It has been such a pleasure staying in such an old cottage: an old path off an old street with lovely walks along the river Leach (and a kingfisher!) Thank you for the personal and friendly feeling and provision of extras. Tony Coombs London and Yorkshire.

Lovely cottage with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well equipped with lots of character. The wood burner was welcome on a rainy week in Lechlade. The cottage has everything you need and we really appreciated the little extras such as plenty of towels, the wine and chocolate on arrival. The location is perfectly located to explore the Cotswolds and within walking distance of all the amenities that Lechlade has to offer. Fantastic walks in the area as well.

Small comfortable cottage, very well equipped.Great location,and convenient for shops and pubs.

  • 5 of 5

We chose the cottage to be able to visit family in the area. As we have been infrequent visitors to the locality before and loved it, We felt at home immediately on stepping through the door, finding it to be small but very cosy. We found no issues with parking during our stay and feel that we would happily stay there again.

LOVELY OLD COTTAGE, SMALL BUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED.

  • 4 of 5

THE COTTAGE IS WELL EQUIPPED AND COMFORTABLE WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED. THE BEDROOMS ARE A GOOD SIZE AND THE BEDS VERY COMFORTABLE. LECHLADE IS A NICE TOWN WITH SEVERAL PLACES TO EAT. PARKING IN THE STREET WAS NO PROBLEM FOR US. VERY PRETTY GARDEN. THE OWNER LEFT US SOME LOVELY PROVISIONS (ABOVE AND BEYOND THE NORM). TV WAS AN ISSUE BUT WE SORTED IT EVENTUALLY, PLUG AERIAL INTO TV AND BYPASS NON-FUNCTIONING UVIEW BOX! ALL IN ALL A VERY GOOD COTTAGE AS A BASE TO EXPLORE THE AREA

Fabulous cottage in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this lovely cottage. It is on a footpath off a no through road so very quiet but only a few seconds walk to the high street. A great base to explore the Cotswolds and one of the best curries we have had from the local around the corner! Julia kindly left us some essentials and a note with ideas of things to do. Our 5 year old loved sitting outside the pub on the river feeding the swans! All in all a great week.
