This holiday cottage has an open fire in the living room and patio doors lead out to a sitting area overlooking the garden - where kingfishers can sometimes be spotted. From the patio garden leading down towards the River Arrow is the owners’ large walled garden, which is a nature lover’s delight. Cheltenham is only a one hour drive away. Shops 100 yards, pub 50 yards.

    "The cottage was clean and basically ok but we found the living room cramped with too much furniture & oversized lamps. This created safety hazards and made it difficult to move around, especially in and out of the kitchen. The second bedroom is actually the sunroom/conservatory with just a curtain separating it from the living area so there was very little privacy for those sleeping there. The access to the cottage is narrow, is shared with people staying at the B&B, and also serves as parking so leaving and accessing the property could be a bit of an obstacle course around people and cars, especially with a pushchair. It was okay as a convenient place to sleep for a couple of nights."
    "Great location, characterful cottage and friendly landlords. However, although we had everything we needed, it all felt very dated."

    "Very friendly and helpful owners, ideal position for Shakesphere country, would use it again. July 2012. "

    "The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. The cottage is really charming inside and well appointed and you could spend all day enjoying the ambience. We would highly recommend this cottage and the surrounding grounds as a relaxing and enjoyable holiday destination for other couples. Oct 2011."
    Previous guest
    "Ideal cottage very private and peaceful. The owners were most friendly and helpful but never intrusive. Ideally situated for visits to many interesting places all within an hours drive. July 2011. "
    Previous guest
    "What I liked about this particular cottage was that, although it was part of the main house situated on the high street, the cottage was at the back of the main Dorset House, therefore, extremely quiet and tranquil. Also, having the landlords live just next door was no problem as they never intruded on my privacy and were very respectful. Oct 2009. "
