About Kathy Foran-Jones

We have only moved to Tewkesbury 2013 and love it so much we thought we would run a holiday cottage so others could experience its delights too!

We have only been married for five years but as a young at heart middle aged couple who like staying in nice places ourselves thought this would help in making the experience enjoyable for you too.

Kathy Foran-Jones purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kathy Foran-Jones chose Tewkesbury

Great location in the centre of Tewkesbury up a quiet victorian alley, Tewkesbury is on the edge of the Cotswolds, and is great for Walking, Cycling, Fishing, Golfing and Sightseeing. Tewkesbury itself has a historic Abbey and lovely antique shops and lots to do in town and nearby. Free wifi. Luxury bedding and towels included, with lots of other luxury touches. Gold Award winning from Visit England Tourist Board.

Everything is on your doorstep. No car needed!

Lovely clean property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much with our two dogs who settled down quickly there.

The property was spacious and clean and everything we needed for a weekend away. There were complimentary biscuits left for us which was a very nice touch after the journey down there.

Everything on the doorstep, although we did use the car to take the dogs to the flood plains of the rivers for a very enjoyable walk.

Would have no hesitation in booking this property again.

Cosy with great touches, a home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Short Stay which was just perfect for us. A stones throw from the town centre, in very well presented cottage which had everything you needed. Very quiet area. The 2 bed cottage is very comfortable with some really nice touches that make it a home from home.

This is a lovely cottage. It's right in the middle of Tewkesbury, located close to everything. It's comfy, well appointed. Although there are 2 bedrooms, it might be a bit crowded for 4 grownups in the depends on your need for space...and how much you like your traveling companions. There's a lovely outdoor patio, when the weather is nice. Although the towels are wonderful (really, I need to buy some!), bring your own wash cloth...none are provided. What's up with that? We had the same experience when we got to Paris. Do Europeans not use wash cloths?

Even so, we'd stay there again.
