Wonderful house with tons of character. Perfect for our adult group of ten plus 3 dogs.

  • 5 of 5

So nice to find a house with 5 bedrooms of similar standard and all en suite. Really good to have large reception rooms especially the hub of the house - the kitchen. A very grown up place to stay. Beautiful views and wonderful walks with good local pubs. Would like to come back and experience in the summer months.

Cotswold country house

  • 5 of 5

Had a short stay with three generations which proved perfect in this impressive country house. The setting and views across the valley were tremendous. The layout of the house with the triple aspect lounge and large bedrooms were magnificent. Spent a day in Bath at the Christmas market then a visit to Gloucester rugby grounds and afternoon tea at a local country house - great variety of activities. Just a few minor things to check, otherwise would highly recommend.
