Planters Studio is a self catering holiday rental with a 1st floor gallery & cast iron 4-poster double bed, a sofa bed is on the GF and a cot on request. In rolling Cotswold farmland the Studio is self contained with off road parking. The location is rural, quiet & peaceful; footpaths surround the Studio. Eastleach village is 3km away where the Queen Victoria is a friendly pub serving good food. Shopping, recreation and other facilities are 6 to 10km away in & near bye Fairford & Lechlade.

The space

The Studio is fully equipped for self catering holidays, it has its own complete kitchen, there is a private entrance, it has a small patio garden and barbecue area. A welcome pack of essentials is always provided.

Guest access

Guests should look out for a sign on a small cross-road and follow the direction to Eastleach Downs Farm Only. The Planters Studio sign is approximately 250m on the lefthand side. Across the gravel drive is a large old wooden door through which a pathway leads to the Studio immediately on the lefthand side. On arrival guests are given the Studio door key which has its own separate and private access for the rental period. Jackie & I live next door only sharing the pathway and gravel driveway with the Studio.

Interaction with guests

It is very likely that Jackie and/or I will be available if guests need help, advice, directions or suggestions. We have information in the Studio, guide books, maps and pamphlets etc and so equally, we are very happy to leave guests entirely alone. There is a Planters Studio (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page which we update from time to time and would like guests to visit, "friend" and share with their own friends and contacts - and to leave a review.

Other things to note

Planters Studio is in Eastleach Downs - a hamlet of four or five properties, it is very quiet and peaceful with neighbours on either side. The land all around Planters Studio is organic farmland and guests with pets are asked to ensure they keep their pets under control so they neither interfere with the wide variety of farm livestock in particular, nor with the abundant wildlife.

Planters Studio is aptly named - there are lots of plants and flowers (I particularly liked the bunch of small white lillies in the kitchen). The place was as described, clean, stylishly furnished and cosy . It's clear that a a lot of thought and care went into the decor. The internet was good and it was nice and warm despite it being October. There are bird feeders just outside the front door and you can watch their antics in the morning. It was great to see a woodpecker! Dougy and Jackie are just the kind of hosts you'd hope for. They are responsive and welcomed us warmly, and oh, trust me, you WILL fall in love with their dog.

Wenye thank you for a great review and Jackie & I hope you might come to stay again sometime soon. It is essential to have a car in this very rural location where the Studio nestles but as everyone comes by car its never been a problem. I will do a review of the local walks from the Studio and prepare a list of the best known ones that are further away. The Studio does have a book of walks in the Cotswolds to which guests may refer.

We contacted Dale in the usual way via Airbnb and provided our telephone number and we were not made aware by Dale at the time that he was having any communication problems. Most guests do find the Studio using GPS - our experience indicates some systems are better than others and we advise guests before they travel that should they get "lost" then they should go to the Victoria pub in Eastleach village and from there we will guide them to the Studio - for Dale local friends did that on our behalf.
