  • Absolutely perfect stay. Beautiful quaint little rural village and perfect little flat. Just what we needed for a quiet little escape to the cotsworlds. Ideally located 10 seconds away from a perfect country pub. Lots of brilliant little touches within the flat which made our stay extra special. The host was also great at giving local advice. Would recommend to all.

  • The check in process was extremely easy. All of the tips about The Hollow Bottom pub and Post Office for breakfast were amazing. Clean and tidy place and extremely comfy during the stay with very kind drinks and chocolates left out for us. Could not recommend more!

    Jack2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Genuinely a beautiful place to stay, a perfect base to explore the cotswolds.

    Colette2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Studio was a lovely little getaway, very clean, cosy and pretty. The extra touches were very thoughtful and appreciated. Guiting Power is such a beautiful place, with lovely walks throughout the village and surrounding area, the church is quite delightful. I strongly recommend you visit both the pub Hollow Bottom, which is lively and friendly and The Old Post Office, where we had our breakfast, the food is locally sourced and absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, along with the gifts and antiques, it makes a very unique and quirky place to visit. Fiona's knowledge of the local area and the stories she shared about the village, made it a wonderful experience altogether. We will definitely book The Studio again.

    Melanie2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place to stay for a night or two, nice, warm and clean. Thoughtful touches like glasses and cutlery, drinks in fridge, chicks etc. Fab meal in Hollow Bottom pub next door and breakfast at the post office was lovely with an interesting shop.

    Ruth2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fionas place was lovely! In such a cute little village with a lovely pub next door. The pub is lively which is great, but you can’t hear a peep, which makes it even better! The studio is a perfect little get away and the garden is a lovely feature. Super clean and Fiona had thought of everything- hot water bottles/ shampoo/ a beer and a gin etc... everything!!! A lovely stay and we can’t wait to return- hopefully for a bit longer next time.

  • We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was warm, welcoming and sparkling clean! The welcome hamper was a really nice touch and we appreciated the neighbours coming over to make sure we had everything we needed. The space was a really good size for 4 adults and 2 babies and the village itself was very cute and in a great location.

    Jon-Paul2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had an unforgettable stay at Forge Cottage. It really is the most perfect and comfortable base to explore all the Cotswolds has to offer. Louise and Graham are the perfect hosts and their spotless and gorgeous cottage is heaven. All the little touches make the trip extra special.like chocolates and wine on arrival. Kids amenities are very much appreciated and very high quality. Even have a good collection of toys which my 4.5 year old loved. We would love to return to sample country life at Forge Cottage again!

    Sonal2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place, the living room is a bit smaller and darker than the photos suggest but we had a great time. Big tv, board games and local walks / activities leaflets. Very clean, and good location, host was very attentive and they left us some food to get started with which was really appreciated. We had a lovely week.

    Ellie2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Forge Cottage is a very clean, well-looked after cottage. It is very comfortable and has everything you need. The owners are nearby and were super-helpful. The village of Guiting Power is very pretty and friendly.

  • Lovely stay. Unbelievably comfortable bed ! Beautiful original wood beams and stone walls, tasteful decor and a lovely place to unwind in. Came for a long weekend of total peace and quiet to relax and recharge ..... and pretty much got exactly that. Hosts left me all the details I needed and didn’t disturb me once , which I really appreciated. Thank You !

    Mitch2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely what you see on the photos - it is spotlessly clean, modern and on trend. The amenities leave nothing to be desired, even down to the little touches like dressing gowns on the bed and fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. The ‘check in’ was very quick and easy, all that was required was a key safe code. The property itself is in a perfect location, an idyllic little village with a pub straight across the road (that does amazing food!) and not too far from Bourton-On-The-Water which is beautiful and well worth a visit. Could not fault our stay and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!

    Samantha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book The Hayloft if your travels take you to the Northern Cotswolds. Beautiful home, perfect location, serene surroundings.

    Philip2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay and perfect location for visiting the stunning Cotswolds x

    Georgia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely gorgeous. Looks exactly as it does in the pictures. We really enjoyed the extra touches like biscuits in the kitchen and lovely smelling body washes in the bathroom. The apartment was also really warm and cosy. Location is great for general cotswolds exploring and the pub opposite (The Plough) is cosy and friendly. We were enjoying our stay so much that we requested an extra day, which the owner allowed us at no extra charge! We really couldn’t have been happier with our stay. I should also add that the bed is really comfy and everything felt sparkling clean.

    Emma2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a unique and beautiful location in the Cotswolds! Much bigger than I expected and we had a lovely time. Highly recommend.

    Amy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay and is in a really great location only a few minutes away from Bourton-on-the-Water, with lots of other walking stops nearby. Amenities are brilliant and the area the cottage is in is lovely and quiet. Would stay again

    Victoria2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a wonderful place to stay in the Cotswold, as being located within 45 min to 1 hour of main places to visit. Cold Aston is very quiet town with a family Pub across the street. We were able to rest a lot. No street’s sound, just the sound of birds to wake up to... The particular care and attention with a bottle of milk in the refrigerator and of bathrobes were much appreciated. Thanks a lot.. we have not left UK yet to get back to Canada, but we are already planning coming back to The Hayloft over next few years.

    Notgrove Estate is one of the few remaining privately owned Cotswold estates offering 1500 acres of private rolling farmland. We have mapped out walks, around the estate and local area and can recommend longer walks if required. Our working farm has sheep and cattle as well as our pet goats, donkeys and alpaca who live just across the track from the pods . You can hire bikes from the local company via our website. We are ideally located to visit the local attractions of Bourton on the Water (3 miles) Stow on the Wold (5 miles) or Burford, Stratford Upon Avon, Cheltenham. Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park is a 15 minute drive away and The Cotswold Wildlife Park is a 25 drive away. Bourton on the Water is 3 miles down the road and has many Cotswold wonders such as Birdland, The Model Railway and the Miniature Village - as well as lovely cafes and shops. The local pub is The Plough at Cold Aston, this is a 1.5 miles walk from us across the fields or down a quiet lane - with lovely food and beers. Or The Black Horse at Naunton is also a lovely village pub with great pub food and a cosy atmosphere.
    The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business. In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • This place is everything you need and more. The pods are adorable and have a lot more room inside than you would think. We stayed for one night but wish we had stayed longer. Definitely order the fire pack if you can, it was pretty windy but we still managed to get the fire pit going and it was such a lovely way to end the evening. We met the owners when having brunch at the onsite café called the Nuttery. The food hit the spot and the staff and the owners were so welcoming and extremely hospitable. Definitely somewhere you will want to go back to in the future, we are already looking to book this place again! Thank you so much again! See you soon!

    Jennifer2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Pods were a really neat idea. If you like getting away from hotels and fussy check in and check outs this is a good one for you.

    Joe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy pod in the countryside. Great fire pit and fire pack provided at additional cost. Extra special in the bright fresh sunshine as well as waking up to snow in the morning!

  • Lovely little pod on an equally lovely farm. The weather was cold but the pod was really cosy. We enjoyed walking around the estate and seeing all of the animals.

    Michael2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience staying at willowherb. There was a lovely pub near by called The Plough Inn at Cold Aston and a few mins drive from Bourton on the water. Fresh linen and enough cutlery etc. for our stay. Will be recommending to family and friends

  • This is a beautiful, characterful filled cotswolds Cottage set in a classic cotswolds hamlet. Jayne the host welcomes you with amazing scones... Jam and cream...... The best marmalade and a loaf of bread and milk in the fridge. It works for a couple and or with a family as the room in the loft is perfect for kids. There is also a local pub which is friendly and does good food and beer.

    Laura & Nigel2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is warm and cosy and in a lovely location just down from the blackhorse Inn and with great access to local villages and walks.

    Robert2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cottage in the heat of the Cotswolds, works as an excellent base if you want to go out exploring by foot or by car. Some brilliant walks around and the sunshine in the afternoons on the garden tipped it all off. Jayne was lovely and an excellent host too! What a great introduction to the Cotswolds. Thanks very much

    Kat2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We thourougly enjoyed our stay in gleed cottage. Jayne is a perfect host. She spoilt us with fresh bread, eggs and even scones. The cottage is lovely and the interior is very stylish. We couldn‘t have wished for any better! Naunton as a location is also very recommended, since it‘s a lot less touristy than other villages in the cotswolds...

    Flu2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in a friendly village. Dogs welcomed. Would recommend.

    Anna2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty period cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds in a very quiet and quaint village. End of terrace, away from the main road so even quieter, spacious with all comforts (from dish washer to hair dryer), outdoor area, two good size bedroom and log fire. Clean, loads of fluffy towels, wonky, age old floors and stair case, it's full of charm. It's a great location to explore such a beautiful part of England, very close to Stow, Bourton on the Water etc. The village has nothing, not even a shop so might not suit everyone; the local pub is lovely and about 30 seconds walk away, but the property has no private parking and when the pub is busy, it's a problem!

  • We had a great weekend at Tally Ho. The hut is perfect for a countryside visit. The kitchen is so well equipped and the stove is amazing.

    Tom2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Richard & Sarah's place. Beautiful country side with cosy pubs in walking distance. The only minor point was that the shower was quite temperamental with some cold showers as a result.

    Arne2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the Tally Ho Shepard’s hut! It was cosy, beautifully furnished and the views are just stunning. On the advice of Richard and the previous reviews we ate one evening at the pub in Guiting Power - the Hollow Bottom - and the food was really good and its a lovely premium pub, and had breakfast and a slice of Victoria sponge at The Old Post Office - Fiona was lovely and gave us an extra large slice - and OMG it’s the best Victoria sponge we’ve ever eaten! One thing to be aware of is that the village is about a 20 minute walk away and while perfectly fine during the day it’s not a walk you can really do after dark - we were planning on walking to the pub for dinner but ended up driving and we’re glad we did. Richard and Sarah have left helpful info on the area and some walks as well - we did the Dovecote one and had a great time! The scenery is beautiful and we had a lovely lunch at The Black Horse in Naunton about 2/3rds of the way through the walk. Would 100% recommend Tally Ho - it was a lovely, peaceful getaway, and we would definitely return!

    Josie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Tally Ho is a charming, cosy retreat perfect to get away from the city hustle and bustle! We loved waking to the surrounding villages and certainly earned our dinners in the local pubs and restaurants! The hut is lovely and clean and we especially liked the log fire! There are no nosy neighbours to worry about (even hector the bull behaved himself).

    Olivia2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Sarah are great and welcoming hosts and their cabin is a very cute and beautiful place to stay. The cabin is fully equipped with everything for 2 people and the log burner is a lovely addition. They answered all of our questions beforehand and during our stay very quickly, offering lots of local tips for walks and restaurants etc. Plenty of walks to do and lovely towns around to visit- a car is required to get to and from the property though. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quaint weekend away!

    Nicole2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Sarahs Shepherds hut is the perfect country escape, set on a beautiful farm with stunning views. The hut had everything we needed for a relaxing and cosy weekend including tips and recommendations for the area and walks nearby, enough cooking equipment to make breakfast and a log burner that made was perfect on our slightly wet weekend. Richard was super friendly and told us about the local area, giving us directions of nearby pubs and restaurants that we could walk to and ensuring we had everything we needed. We walked into Guiting Power one morning and had breakfast (and the best victoria sponge cake) at the Old Post Office which was lovely. We also went back into the village for dinner that night and ate at The Hollow Bottom - a lovely cost pub that served great food and had a great atmosphere. All in all a perfect weekend escape to the country and much needed relax! We can't wait to visit again soon!

    Faye2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The shepherds hut has a superb spot with a beautiful view over the fields. It’s in a great location, quiet and rural but within walking distance to a couple of pubs.

    Paul2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, in a quaint cabin. Lovely walks around the area and fantastic hosts! Would highly recommend it for a getaway

  • Our stay was brilliant, so close to the farm park and local villages. Lots of information and walking maps (although we didn’t get a chance to use these because of the flooding!).

    Chloe2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lesley’s guest suite was charming and cosy. It had everything we needed, along with lovely little touches such as duck eggs from the farm & bread, butter, jam, milk, tea & coffee etc. There’s lots of leaflets of things to do in the Cotswolds, along with a helpful document with local supermarkets etc. The guest suite was easy to get to and had lovely views. Thank you for having us!

    Welcome to Miller's Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Miller’s Cottage is one of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages in the heart of Winchcombe, an ancient Saxon town situated on the famous Cotswold Way. Boasting a thriving local community, the town offers excellent amenities, with independent shops, several pubs and even a Michelin starred restaurant. With an abundance of local walking and cycling trails, plus places of historical interest, including Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe has plenty to keep visitors occupied. The town is also within easy reach of the many charming market towns and villages of the Cotswolds, guests can ride the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway directly to Cheltenham, and the beautiful cities of Bath and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    From the pavement, three stone steps lead up to the front door of Miller’s Cottage, which opens into the entrance hall. This in turn leads into the following ground floor rooms: Living room: This is a stunning room, with exposed Cotswold stone walls, a flagstone floor, oak beams, and a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a three-seater sofa and arm chair, plus a Freeview TV and DVD player, with well stocked book shelves offering a selection of games and DVDs; Dining area: Two steps lead up from the living room to the dining area, which is partially separated from the living room by the TV, which can be rotated to allow it to be viewed from either room. This lovely space has the same character features as the living room, including a second fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is an oak dining table that comfortably seats four people, and a stylish sideboard provides storage space and houses a DAB radio with Bluetooth speaker and iPod docking station; Kitchen: Behind the dining room, the well presented kitchen contains an electric oven, four-ring gas hob, slimline dishwasher, combined washing machine and tumble dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is also a Nespresso coffee machine (pods are not included); Boot room: Accessed via the kitchen, this useful space leads directly into the garden and is ideal for storing coats and boots. It contains an American-style fridge freezer and a wooden bench. Stairs lead up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 1: A beautiful room, tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, which contains a king size bed, dressing table and vanity mirror, plus a fitted wardrobe; Bedroom 2: Overlooking the garden, this lovely bedroom contains either two single beds or a super king size bed.

The garden can be accessed either from the entrance hall, and along the side of the cottage, or from the boot room, which opens directly onto a pretty gravel area. Steps lead up through the garden, with mature shrubs on either side, to a seating area with a table and four chairs, which enjoy lovely views of the surrounding Cotswold hills. There is a summer house at the end of the garden, which is available to store bicycles. The cottage has an allocated parking space a short walk away and further on street parking is available in the town.
    Set above the River Isbourne, Winchcombe is arguably the hidden jewel in the Cotswolds crown. The town became prosperous from its Abbey (one of the largest Benedictine monasteries in England), its wool trade and as a producer of tobacco. Although the Abbey has gone there is still much to see of historic Winchcombe and the wealth of the town is reflected in many of the buildings, as well as in the surrounding countryside. No visit to Winchcombe would be complete without seeing four of the most prestigious historical sites in the area. Sudeley Castle (home of Queen Katherine Parr up to her death in 1548), Hailes Abbey (a Cistercian House founded in 1246 and owned by English Heritage), Stanway House (a Jacobean manor house with a world-famous fountain) and Belas Knap (a Neolithic long barrow dating from approximately 3800 BC) all offer a fascinating insight into the life of our ancestors. Known as the walking capital of the Cotswolds, Winchcombe sits at the intersection of the Cotswold Way, the Gloucestershire Way, the Wardens Way, the Windrush Way and the new Winchcombe Way. Alternatively, the GWR Steam Railway provides a fantastic fun day out for the family, running from Toddington through Winchcombe to Cheltenham Racecourse. Winchcombe has a mouthwatering selection of top quality restaurants, a wine bar, pubs, tea shops and a contemporary delicatessen/coffee shop. So whether you want a quick snack or a leisurely meal you'll be spoilt for choice. With a vibrant Music & Arts Festival in May/June, a Country Show in August and a Christmas Festival in December, Winchcombe also has a busy cultural calendar. Food & Drink Winchcombe is fortunate to be blessed with a variety of places to eat and drink, with the following being just a selection of the options available: Restaurant 5 North Street (www.5northstreetrestaurant.co.uk): A small family run Michelin starred restaurant. The cooking at North Street brings together the elements of traditional British cooking with the more sophisticated ingredients and techniques of classic French cuisine; Wesley House (www.wesleyhouse.co.uk): Set in a 15th century Merchant's House, Wesley House's restaurant has been awarded an AA two star rosette and has developed a reputation for excellent food, elegant surroundings and exemplary service. The vibrant Wine Bar & Grill offers a lively atmosphere, with an extensive cellar and delicious dishes in a relaxed setting; Wine and Sausage at The White Hart Inn (http://wineandsausage.whitehartwinchcombe.co.uk): The White Hart Inn is a charming 16th Century inn, with the Wine & Sausage Restaurant at its heart. Open daily for breakfast, morning coffee & cakes, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and bar snacks.
  • This is a lovely cottage,the living space downstairs is particularly lovely,the wood burning stove was really wonderful.

    Ilona2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, super clean with a lovely garden. Gorgeous spacious bedrooms, comfy beds! Bathroom is gorgeous & so clean as was kitchen. Perfect location for exploring Winchcombe. Sofa is quite small in the living area for 4 people but perfect for 2. Private parking space near the property is great as parking can be tricky in the village. Can’t wait to come back!

    Amy2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place in Winchcombe which acts as a great base for exploring the Cotswolds. Owner was very responsive to questions we had. We had our 10 month old baby with us which was great although the hard stone floors downstairs did mean we had to keep a more careful eye on him rather than let him crawl on his own. Thoroughly recommend overall.

    Simon2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • A truly wonder character cottage in the heart of town. Ok, so parking for 1 car is 3 mins walk away - but you can quickly unload outside the house. So not a big deal. Any additional cars will need to go in the long stay (£1 per day. About 5 min walk). Lots of internal steps - so not somewhere for someone with mobility issues - but we absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop us from recommending. Low doors - banged our heads - but again, isn’t that part of the charm!? For those with dogs - the back garden is enclosed - so no need to worry about escapees! Albeit when returning from a walk you do need to carry your muddy pooch through the front door and out of the side door and up the steps to access the garden (where there is a hose to shower them down). Other thing of note/warning to dog owners - the only “enclosed” area on the ground floor is the boot room to the rear - but this is cold with no heating - so not suitable for a dog in winter if there are any issues with house training....not applicable to us - but thought it worthy of note. Log burners were delightful. Only had 6-8 logs provided for our 3 day stay - but had seen other reviews so took plenty with us. All facilities were great (note there is not an electric shaving/toothbrush point - so go with them fully charged). Lovely decor, nice and clean! Literally have nothing negative to say. We really hope to return as we barely scratched the surface of local walks (but well done us - we did manage to try all the pubs - very nice!)

    Laura2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Millers Cottage is a beautiful property in an amazing location. Our whole trip was beyond our expectations and we will definitely be returning. Throughout the trip the communication was exceptional, there’s not a single thing we would have changed.

    Ben2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Miller's Cottage is a fine choice in Winchcombe -- well-located and equipped, quiet, and with responsive and considerate owners.

    Thomas2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • It is a really lovely cottage, and the owner respond our questions quickly, it is really nice to stay here.

    Shepherds View is a brand new Shepherds Hut with one double bedroom, shower room, toilet, microwave, sink and hob. Outside there is a decking area with table,chairs and bbq. It is set in glorious countryside with it's own parking
  • We came for a weekend stay, prior to this we said we probably would need a late check in so Linda left the key on the table for us. Upon arriving there were some little jams, milk in the fridge and some chocolate bars which was a lovely touch. Communication was great, Linda told us some lovely places to see and eat. The cabin itself is so cute and cosy and was just what we wanted, the horse fields surrounding it was amazing, waking up and looking out the window to horses was so lovely. It’s about an 8 minute drive to a lovely village with plenty of places to eat however you have a hob and microwave you can cook in. Highly recommend this place. I saw Linda before leaving and she showed me the horses in the stable after learning I was horse mad.

    Tasha2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at the hut and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time round. Great location and beautiful grounds. Thanks very much to Linda for a very enjoyable stay!

    Nicole2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in Naunton, the cabin is super cute and the local pub (the black horse) had amazing staff and food. All the local horse trainers drink in their too so if that's your thing, and maybe want to pick up tip or too this is the spot for you!

    Matthew2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Incredibly clean and cosy. Linda was very helpful. Great for a quiet getaway

    Daniel2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay. Had to be cut short due to weather and Linda was understanding and has messaged me privately on the matter. Amazing little glamping style hut that I would highly recommend

    Edward2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described 🙂

    Felicity2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a lovely couples holiday in this shepherd's hut. It is cosy and clean, and the pictures do it justice. The location was excellent for being able to visit all of the prettiest towns and villages within half an hour's drive. The hut was nice and private, with a lovely view of the fields. We had everything we could have needed in the hut, including a hot water bottle, extra blanket, and even a bottle of milk in the fridge for tea and coffee. It may be small, but we still had enough space for the two of us to move around in without getting in each others way. I highly recommend this for couples looking for a quiet getaway.

    Rosie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The shepherd's hut was a fantastic place to stay for our weekend in the Cotswolds! It has loads of character and is very cosy, with a comfortable bed and everything we needed for a comfortable weekend stay - even though we picked the weekend of Storm Dennis to visit! Lovely views and a peaceful location. It's a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside and the local pub (10 minutes walk) was cosy and served tasty food and drinks. We would definitely come back!

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • What an idyllic place to ring in the new year! Mucky Cottage is within easy reach of London and the Midlands, and yet feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. It's a perfect slice of country life, and with ample bedrooms and bathrooms, it makes a perfect venue for a relaxed escape with friends or family. Highly recommended!

For a full history of this glorious building, see ‘History of Sudeley Castle’ in this guide.

The town itself benefits from several small supermarkets, including The Co-Operative Food and Warner’s Budgens, both well-stocked with fresh produce and store cupboard essentials. Vale & Hills Family Butchers offers fantastic, local meat on the town’s high street, with a host of delicious goodies available at North’s Bakery for those in search of a fresh morning loaf.

Walks Winchcombe’s rolling countryside is a true walkers’ paradise, with options for casual, seasoned and hardy walkers running right from the cottage’s front door. Winchcombe itself is a “walkers are welcome” town, a special status awarded to towns and villages which go above and beyond with their walking amenities, making it a fantastic destination for groups in search of a walking break. The Winchcombe Way, a 42-mile figure-of-eight trail centred around the town, offers walkers a great way of discovering the surrounding Cotswold towns and villages section-by-section over the course of a stay, whilst there are plenty of options for those looking for a more casual, leisurely pace within a close radius of the cottage. We recommend the Sudeley Castle Circular walk for a relaxing stroll; a 2-mile loop setting off straight from the cottage’s front door, taking you into the grounds of historic Sudeley Castle - a must-visit for any guest. The 2 ½ mile walk to Belas Knap, a Neolithic chambered long barrow sat atop Cleeve Hill, is also a great walk to try from the doorstep, providing you don’t mind the incline.

We managed to get the tub nice and hot on both nights even though the temperature outside dropped to 1°C. The farm is quite easy to find and the perfect base from which to explore the Cotswolds.

  • We had such a perfect couple of nights staying in the Shepherd’s hut! The location is perfect for exploring the Cotswolds, and the wood fired hot tub was a real bonus at night for star gazing in. The hut itself was so cosy and spotless and is the perfect size for 2; we had everything we needed for a short stay, and despite being bitterly cold and stormy outside it stayed warm and you didn’t feel the wind at all. We would love to come back again in the summer :)

    Welcome to Honeystones, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Honeystones is a stylish, interior designed, detached house, located on the edge of the famous village of Bourton-on-the-Water and within walking distance of The Slaughters. Bourton is affectionately known as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, due to the beautiful river that meanders through the heart of the village. Bourton itself has plenty to appeal to visitors, including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as being ideally located for exploring the many other beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Honeystones is very peacefully located on a no through road, in the village of Bourton-on-the-Water. There is a small lawned area at the front of the property, with a path leading to the front door, which opens into a spacious hallway. This leads to the following ground floor rooms: Living room: A stylish room in muted tones, with bi-fold doors leading directly onto the garden, there is ample seating with a two and a three-seater sofa, plus an arm chair and SMART TV; Dining & family room: this convivial space has a dining table with seating for eight plus a chaise sofa and arm chair, plus another SMART TV; Kitchen area: This spacious area is open to the dining room and is very well equipped with two electric ovens, a six-ring gas hob, full height double fridge and freezer units, a full-size dishwasher plus washing machine and a tumble dryer.

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade".
  • We loved our stay, the house is beautiful and there has clearly been a lot of thought that has gone into the house, along with all the additional touches.

  • Lovely little cottage with great personal touches throughout , making it the perfect stay . A welcome pack helped start us off , thoughtfully provided by the host along with top tips and local walking and F&B advice. Cosy bedrooms and top quality linen . Would definitely visit again

    Ann2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was a dream staying at the cottage! It was perfectly located and surpassed our expectations in coziness and thoughtful touches.

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • ...such a lovely cottage and perfectly located in the charming village of Winchcombe. Loved the welcome hamper and the Inglenook fireplace provided a homely comfort; the warm glow and crackle of log fire together with tea and chatter, books and cake made for another world whenever the weather closed in. Jan's 65th birthday found us in easy reach of high tea at the Manor in Lower Slaughter (a village of unsurpassed beauty) and within a two minute walk of the White Hart for evening dinner (one of those rare eateries where everything is quietly but exactly 'right'). This cottage has gone in Jan's 'little book of places to remember' and we shall be booking again when Sudeley Castle, Gardens and Grounds (a 5 minute walk from the cottage) strut their spring-come-summer glory.

    Nick2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt I would recommend this property and host. My family of 4 stayed here for two nights. A quaint little cottage in a perfect location to explore the castle, pubs and footpaths around the area. Easy parking outside. Extremely clean throughout with a very cosy fire! There were beautiful extra touches which i wouldn’t want to spoil for anyone arriving here but loved the gin!

    Emma2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely cottage in a perfect location. Lots of lovely touches and very comfy. The only thing I would make people aware of is the ongoing building work at the property next door. Tradesman starting work one day before 8am which wasn’t ideal. Also taking up at least 3 of the parking spaces outside the property so not always easy to park.

    Debbie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, spatious, beautiful location, with lots of thoughtful touches in the house itself!

It's an easy walk into the town, Naunton, which is very cute and not touristy at all. Lovely walks nearby, and an easy drive to many more. Breakfast was delicious, and John & Maria gave us many useful tips for things to do and see in the Cotswalds

In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • a lovely, spacious yet cosy and well appointed cottage perfect for a group of 8 of us. The owners provided a welcome basket of wine, bread, biscuits as well as teas, coffee, sugar and milk. The location was fantastic and close to walks as well as the picturesque town of Burton on the water. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this property

  • It was a perfect stay. The cottage is beautiful both from inside and outside. Apart from a relatively slow wifi, everything was amazing. It was clean, warm and cozy. Jayne was quick to respond for the entire time and flexible when we had to leave early.

    Alper Cem2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very stylish accommodation in a lovely setting - easy to find despite being fairly remote, and extremely comfortable and attractive. The local pub has good food, good beer and a great atmosphere. Jayne was extremely easy to communicate with, and clearly has great style as an interior designer - we appreciated the high quality of all the finishes, and particularly liked the luxurious bedding. And arriving to find tea coffee and milk was a great relief.

    John2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay! Jaynes place is very stylish, very clean, very warm, very comfy and in the perfect location to explore the Cotswolds. The photos match to exactly how I imagined it to be. The bed is also insanely comfy! I would definitely recommend staying there and will most likely stay again!

    Sam2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hospitality from Jayne during our stay. Lovely little place and some good places to explore nearby in the heart of the Cotswolds.

    Steven2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jayne’s place was perfect. The location is ideal and a great base to explore the area from. We expected that the cottage would be nice and homely but it a was even better than expected, would happily stay here again in future. Thanks a lot Jayne!

    Ed2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot recommend this stay enough. Jayne’s attention to detail, hospitality and cleanliness beats that of 5 star hotels and I would love to offer this stay 6 stars!

    Charlotte2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jayne's place is absolutely delightful! It's a stylish little cottage a few minutes drive from Stow. Perfect getaway for a couple. We were so pleasantly surprised by how stylish her place is, and how much thought Jayne has put into making our stay as memorable as possible (e.g., she had a few board games and Bose speakers). Highly recommend her place!

  • We had an amazing time and Douglas and Penny are wonderful hosts. The home is beautiful and we were able to do some amazing walks right from the front door. We had everything we needed to cook and visited the local pub where we felt welcome and had a nice meal. Seeing the pheasants in the garden was a nice surprise! Highly recommend!

    Beth2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, really cosy and full of character. We loved the log fire and thoughtful welcome pack of goodies. Couldn’t fault the location either — great local pub and within easy distance of many quintessential Cotswolds towns. We had an amazing weekend and will definitely be back!

    Alex2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cotagge, very comfortable, impeccable and perfectly equipped. We appreciate all the items for breakfast and cleaning. Property highly recommended.

    Maggie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A great little cottage, perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. Naunton is a cute little village with just a local pub which served great pub food. Loved the little welcome touches such as croissants, bread and jam ;)

    Leo2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, perfect with the log fire in an evening. A great location for neighbouring towns like stow on the wold and boughton on the water and daylesford farm. Wouldn’t hesitate to come back next year, thank you.

    Rebecca2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Penny and Doug are the most delightful hosts; ready to offer advice and help when needed, but not intrusive. Oyster Barn is a spotless, well-equipped, beautifully furnished home-away-from-home perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. We loved the welcome gift of eggs, milk, bread and Penny's home made jam. The Black Horse pub, a 5 minute walk away, offers delicious food and hospitality. We would definitely recommend choosing Oyster Barn and the village of Naunton for your visit to this area!

    The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business. In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • Our stay at the Poppy Pod was lovely. It was the perfect little space for just my husband and I whilst we were visiting the Cotswolds. We really enjoyed making use of the fire pit, and watching the alpacas across the way. What a lovely little spot.
