Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than five guests at the property.

A travel cot (without linen) and high chair are provided.
A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety
Robin Cottage is an old property and has some features, including low beams and two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
The low lying nature of the bedroom windows could pose a hazard to children. Window locks are provided and guests should be aware of the need to supervise children in these areas.
There is a brook, served by a culvert, on the opposite side of the road to the property, which could pose a hazard to children. Guests should be aware of the need to supervise children and it would be prudent to keep the front gate to the property shut.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The perfect place to stay!
My family and I stayed at Robin cottage for 3 nights over half term. The cottage was perfect and we all loved it! It has everything you need and the welcome biscuits and wine were so lovely!! The location was perfect to explore the Cotswolds and we would definitely love to go back!! We would highly recommend!!!
Beautiful cottage, perfect for a weekend away
We were a group of five women away for a weekend, the cottage was the perfect size, had good facilities and was very clean. The only small difficulty we had was that there was not much toilet paper provided so future guests should make sure they stock up!
beautiful and authentic
My family and I had the most fantastic stay at Robin Cottage. Incredibly relaxing with wonderful surroundings a stunningly pristine cottage and all the directions we could have needed in the guide. If staying here I highly recommend Sunday roast at the Red lion inn and venturing out a simple 16 minute drive to the Churchill Arms in nearby Paxford, where the food is absolutely divine. We shall certainly be back
Excellent accommodation in a lovely village
