Great location for walks and pubs. Comfortable accommodation with everything you needed for a lovely break. Some noise disturbance from building works nearby and driveway next to the bedroom window.

I would recommend this property however the only let down was it could have been cleaned to a better standard upon arrival. Hide

As above, the property was excellent, very spacious, clean and comfortable and the owners were friendly. The enclosed courtyard was appreciated by our dog, who I think could smell the previous canine holidaymakers. Only drawback was the view of the barns, as above.

The cottage has been beautifully converted with top quality furnishings. It is really warm and cosy if the weather is not so good. The enclosed garden is great of you have a dog. The owners live in the farmhouse but leave you alone to enjoy your time at the cottage. The surrounding area is lovely especially if you like walking.

What a lovely cottage, spent our 40th wedding anniversary there, had a great week. Lovely and peaceful. Just a 20 minute walk into Lechlade. Totally dog friendly even though we didnt take a dog, as we sadly lost our beloved Sasha a few months ago. Owners were there if needed, but left us alone otherwise.

Our "cottage" which was a converted barn is based in lechlade, about thirty minutes walk away. Very quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Dogs are allowed, and although we didn't take ours with us, you wouldn't know dogs have been in the property as it is very clean. It is well based as there are lots of places to go around lechlade. Plenty of supermarketsRead more in nearby carterton to choose from. This was our second visit and will go again soon. Lovely hosts. Hide
