We booked Aurora for a short honeymoon after our wedding, and it did not disappoint. We wanted something more intimate and unusual than a hotel, and this property ticked all the boxes. It is beautifully presented, surrounded by gorgeous views, is private and the finishing touches were really sweet. We were welcomed by some essential food for breakfast which were really appreciated as it was late when we arrived, along with cookies and a bottle of wine, which was welcome after a long drive. It is also well located for exploring many of the local towns and villages. We will definitely be looking...more
Really enjoyed our stay, eggs from the farm were a lovely touch. Great base to visit the Cotswolds and surrounding areas.
We were greeted at the Old Laundry by the Host who was very helpful in giving us ideas of places to visit, local walks and places to eat. All of which were spot on! As a very last minute break (we turned up within a few hours of booking), it was great to not need to scroll the internet for local attractions, restaurants etc. The Old Laundry is decorated beautifully and the hosts have put in so much detail into every piece. The beds are extremely comfy and the cottage was super clean. There was amble facilities to cook and the hosts let us use their bbq one evening too. We’d highly recommend bo...more
The property is very nicely done and very well equipped with everything you need for our stay. The owners have taken the time to take care of every detail and the deco is lovely. We loved the location as is in a very quite area but very close to all the amities we needed ( groceries, walks, rides, train station, etc... ) We would definitely recommend it and we'd love to go back in the future.
Fergus made every effort to make our stay the best it could be. We had a very relaxing get away and will definitely visit again as the barn was so lovely and comfortable. Thanks again for an amazing stay!
The reading room was exactly what is say on the box. House was beautiful, had everything you need, beds really comfy and the garden is a sun trap. Short walk into Burford.
We had a fabulous time. A beautiful cottage in a lovely location, we didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend.
We stayed at the Old Stables for 4 nights and were very sad to leave! It is small but perfectly formed and worked very well for our family of 4. Nicely decorated with thoughtful touches, great wood burner, powerful shower, comfortable beds. Excellent location to explore the Cotswolds. Owners very friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is small but well equipped. We would definitely come back.
Our second visit to Twigs was again everything we could have hoped for; relaxing, comfortable and peaceful. Twigs has been equipped to a very high standard and every home comfort has been provided. The welcome pack is both thoughtful and much appreciated. Don’t worry about forgetting your toothbrush or an item of toiletries - Coral has thought of everything! It’s such a joy to arrive at Twigs and feel you are ‘home’. Our delightful hosts, Coral and John, are so welcoming, knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. We could have gone out for dinner each evening at The Bell, which has ra...more
We had a lovely week staying at No.4. Great food and drinks at The Bull (just opposite the flat!), great local markets in Cirencester (Saturdays) and in the village (Wednesdays), really nice dinner at Thyme (a short drive) and stunningly beautiful walks. The flat is very very comfortable (though you should be aware that it’s quite far (down a passageway, up lots of steps etc) to bring your luggage in so not ideal if you’re infirm. It was fine for us and wasn’t a problem. We enjoyed the wine that was left for us thank you! Also liked the efforts to be environmentally aware. Perhaps this could b...more
The barns have spacious living areas and are well furnished. The outdoor seating provided and BBQ are very good. Plenty of parking and the barns are situated in lovely quiet village.
Travelled here for work for a two week job with 4 others The Prince barn is extremely spacious and clean, the under floor heating was a nice touch aswell Would definitely recommend this place Lovely Stay
We stayed in The Barn. The accommodation is very spacious and is extremely well appointed and equipped. We arrived after a long flight from South Africa and were very pleased to see all the necessary little things like coffee, tea salt and pepper, dishwasher tablets, surface cleaner etc. The place is spotless, the beds large and comfortable and the towels are white and fluffy. The setting is beautiful and peaceful with a large lawned area outside where our grand-children enjoyed kicking a ball etc. Close by there is a co-op in Stanford-in-the-Vale and approximately 10mins away in Faringdon ...more
Pear Tree suited the 8 of us beautifully. A great location for walks and cycling not to mention the pub! The house is very comfortable with plenty of space to gather, or relax We had a couple of questions whilst there and they were addressed promptly and were very helpful.
We spent 2 1/2 weeks in this stunning home in October. We loved every minute. The house is a beautiful mix of history and modern convenience. Perfect for a family reunion or a couples vacation. The location is amazing, one block from the high street of charming Burford. The owner was very accommodating and helpful All in all, an excellent and memorable experience. We will definitely be back!
Good location for visiting any part of The Cotswolds. Large house with good sized rooms and excellent outdoor space for games particularly croquet (equipment provided, also badminton). Kitchen dinning area well laid out and lovely and sunny in the mornings. Slight noise from the work that had to be done outside towards the end of our stay but didn't really impact on us. Had more of an issue with visitors to the brewery and walkers wandering down our side of the driveway. More than happy to be next to a working brewery but maybe better direction for visitors? We did have a lovely week and ...more
Great for family getaway No neighbours for four grandchildren, parents and grandparents Brewery could not be better placed
We had a fantastic stay at Yew Tree Farmhouse - it was immaculate - comfortable - cozy - and charming Highly recommend this home if you are in the Cotswalds Thank you to Stay Cotswalds for your assistance with this booking We will be back!!!!
We loved this house, & it was perfect for a large family gathering - two cosy living areas which suited teens and oldies, tastefully-designed rooms and comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and a stone's throw from the pub and the village shop, There was even a decorated Christmas tree, to make it even more welcoming. On the negative side - it would have helped to have an extending dining table or a side table - it was just a tad too short for a festive meal, with not a lot of table space for vegetables. And the oven - it's just too small, so cooking for a group needs careful planning, and ...more
Despite being part of a complex the Cottages all have their own space so it was very peaceful with a very pleasant 10 minute walk to the Thames. The cottage is a very high standard with comfortable beds and is very spacious. However the supply of some basics was limited and could have been improved at minimal cost. We had to buy more soap, toilet rolls, washing tablets, and washing up tablets. We also had to ask for additional cutlery and crockery to avoid washing up continuously. Apart from these minor issues which could easily be resolved everything else was excellent.
Good place to stay but very poor forniture in the kitchen. A lot of space in blossom bungalow ok for a whole family
Ivy Cottage is a very comfortable, dog-friendly cottage with a pretty walk to the river on its doorstep.
Ready token was the perfect cottage it was very cosy and very relaxing, the cottage was very well equipped with everything you could possible need and more. Cottage was always kept warm which was a bonus as I feel the cold, excellent facilities even had a dishwasher so u could still enjoy your holiday. Definitely would recommend this cottage as was also very well situated, can’t wait for our next stay.
Perfect location, facilities clean and well prepared, easy and clear communication with the customer service
We were in the middle of a difficult house sale and completion dates kept changing. We booked Fairfield cottage not only because it was very convenient but because Stay Cotswold have by far the most customer friendly booking system. We had to change dates twice but thanks to the help and cooperation of Stay Cotswold and Jaime Gould in particular , we were able to do this secure in the knowledge that we will get a full refund (minus booking fee) for the cancelled dates. This is in sharp contrast to other booking agents. I would be happy to recommend this company and would certainly use them a...more
Everything worked very well in this spacious, clean and well arranged barn conversion. Safe outdoor space for a young child and dog. Bedrooms are well separated. We hadn't requested the singles option for beds in some rooms. However, they were made up like that so it's as well to make your preference clear. Also we did request place mats on arrival, having noticed these weren't provided and we didn't want to risk spoiling the large, wood dining table - and we were able to contact someone about this.
We had a great time at The Owl Barn. Perfect location for walking and cycling straight from the barn. The grounds are beautiful and plenty of space for my grandsons to play football.....almost a full size football pitch! We will definitely be returning. Loved it!!
This is a lovely property. We had a couple of issues, most notable was the dog hair. It was on the bedding, carpets etc. The property had obviously been cleaned, but if you are going to allow dogs then you have to clean better than that. I like dogs, I don't want to sleep in other peoples dog's hair. Also, I had requested twin beds for the children and their bed was made up as a double. I managed to split them myself and just about find anough bedding to do the first night. Oh, and there was no washing up liquid or dish cloths, the kind of things that you would expect to just be there. Havi...more
We had a wonderful stay at penscombe house, the house is beautiful and the location is idle. We would definitely recommend it.
Only drawback was a fan noise that was very loud at night, particularly in twin bedded room. Sounded like a mighty storm enough to keep occupants awake. We couldn’t find out what or where it came from. Otherwise all good.
Our stay was between Sept 2020 until Feb 2021.During this time we found the apartment comfortable and very well equipped. The location within the High Street of Burford was excellent and with sufficient shops to support our needs without having to drive. The only issue if you have a car is parking especially during the summer season when the town is crowed with tourists. The staff at Staycotswold were very friendly and helpful.
We had a wonderful family stay at Upton Downs. The house is spacious and very comfortable and having the farm shop and smokery next door was great. The garden is huge and the toddlers loved running around and picking apples. There were a few essential things missing: no towel rails or toilet roll holders in any of the bathrooms. No large bowls for salad or pasta and no salad spinner. Having these would have made our stay even better.
We had a wonderful stay at the Goodlake Barn. It is perfect for family and friends holidays and ideally situated to visit the Costwolds and go for wonderful walks
A perfect little flat in a truly splendid location. Ideal for a short getaway or a longer stay, with really faultless customer service from Stay Cotswold.
We loved our stay at Honey Cottage, so cosy and well placed. The grounds were gorgeous, and so peaceful, with plenty of room for the dogs. The fact that we could wander down to the Thames within the private grounds was a real bonus. The Thames path was easily accessible, with glorious walks each way, with plenty of pubs to try out! Just a fabulous location and we will return, perhaps with more of the family!
We spent a wonderful pre-Christmas weekend with our children and grandchildren in this very comfortable and atmospheric cottage. It was very well-equipped with a wonderfully practical kitchen which enabled us to cook a celebratory meal for us all and very comfortable lounge where we were able to enjoy an evening of charades in front of a roaring fire! We explored the quintessentially Cotswold village of Filkins and ended our weekend with a wonderful lunch at the Five Alls pub which has a well-deserved great reputation and was only 5 minutes walk from the cottage. The booking procedure was very...more
