Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had an absolutely great time staying with Sean and Kena. The cottage was lovely and fitted our needs perfectly.

If you like to stay in a beautiful cottage in a lovely, quiet setting, I highly recommend this cottage.

Willesley itself is a very small town, but Tetbury is only a 6 min drive away in case you need to get some groceries.

Cities like Bath, Oxford and idyllic cotswolds villages like Bibury are all an hour long drive away at most (Also don't forget to visit the National Arboretum!).

Again we had a great stay and highly recommend this cottage!

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely relax week at this cottage. It is set in a beautiful area.

We found the location great, it is close to Bath and lots of other places to explore.

We visited longleat which was a great day out and well worth a visit.

The cottage is well equipped and the tea tray on arrival was a lovely touch.

The hosts Sean & Kena are a lovely couple.

Lovely Cotswold cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a lovely week in this cottage. It's a nice quiet location and very peaceful.

The cottage very comfortable and well equipped. It's also bigger than it looks in the pictures.

There is a large garden which our children (8 & 5) enjoyed playing in.

The owners, Sean and Kena, are very friendly and welcoming.

Highly recommended!

Wonderful holiday cottage in central Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

As a Dutch family of 4 (two kids) we enjoyed our week stay in this wonderful cottage very much. We felt very welcome in the comfortable cottage due to our great hosts Sean and Kena. They really took good care of us for a convenient and pleasant stay. The cottage was fully equipped and decorated with tasteful furniture. The kitchen was very big and we've prepared some exquisite meals.

Also great atmosphere in a beautiful landscape full of touristic opportunities: walking along the public footpaths, nice villages and great nature. Thank you so much!

Cotswold Cottage in Idyllic Hamlet

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and Garden Cottage was the ideal base to explore the South Cotswolds, Bath, etc. Very comfortable and relaxing in the most beautiful setting, we saw Rural England at its best. Kena and Sean made us very welcome and the facilities, seclusion and location were excellent value. We look forward to visiting again as there are still many places that we wish to see.
