Great location, super cottage, homely feel, A+

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a superb location for touring The Cotswolds. We visited Oxford, Bicester, Gloucester as well as many towns nearby. Situated in a quiet village, it was perfect for our family. Clean, homely and well kept, it has a super garden which the boys loved playing in. Two toilets which is good when 5 people staying. TV & DVD which is handy for evenings! We spent a super week here, good weather and would definitely return and recommend to others. Owners were very helpful before our stay and when we met them. A++++
