Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our fifth stay in the Cotswolds and the best by a long way.



A great location, a gorgeous home-away-from-home, and a lovely time had by every one of us.



We truly enjoyed our stay in Ivy Cottage. The cottage has been done up beautifully with all the amenities. The garden is lovely and so enjoyed sitting in the sun. This area is really pretty and a tranquil place to visit. Thank you for all your suggestions of places to visit.

Lovely house and garden in charming village

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Ivy Cottage for a family get together. The house had everything we needed. The garden was particularly pleasant for a BBQ or "just chilling". The local village was very friendly with some amazing old houses, and a real farm shop which made and sold the best bacon we have ever had. The walks up the nearby hill gave beautiful views. One night we took advantage of the delivered 3 course meal by Jennie, which was superb. Richard and Jan were very helpful with information before the visit and popped in to say hello, then left us to it. Further afield the countryside and villages were also very beautiful

Family get together

Ivy Cottage suited a family get-together perfectly, enclosed garden to corral small children and dog. House had everything we needed and layout suited all of us, lovely walks in a peaceful setting. Suberb!

Perfect cottage for a great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ivy Cottage for a weekend get together with a group of friends and it was the perfect place. The cottage is beautifully presented, very comfy beds and a great shower. Lovely communal spaces including a dining table that easily seated 10 adults. We enjoyed the outside space and some really nice walks around the local area to local pubs and the cricket club. Plenty of parking for us all as well. Overall a great place and would definitely recommend.
