About Pat Fevre

Hi we're Michele & Pat, owners of Orion Cottage.

Although we both live and work in London, we originally bought Orion Cottage to be closer to our autistic daughter who lives in a Camphill community near by. We decided to make our cottage available to guests as well.

Pat Fevre purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Pat Fevre chose Nailsworth

We first discovered the South Cotswolds to visit our daughter near Stroud, and instantly fell in love with its quirky charms, its arts & craft culture and its relaxed friendly atmosphere.

Driving through Nailsworth we discovered Ruskin Mill set in a most beautiful, magical valley.

What makes this cottage unique

Cosy yet spacious, stunning countryside views, walking distance to Nailsworth and to all its independent shops and restaurants.

Pretty secluded cottage garden with water feature. Easy access with own parking bay off village Green.

property was clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

My Granddaughter and myself enjoyed our stay, the only trouble with location was that we had to do a lot of driving to visit any attractions, but we didn't let it spoil our time there

Snow and ice in Nailsworth does not stop us from having a great time

  • 4 of 5

The property was ideal for our purposes. Very well located for family visits over the festive period.

Despite the snow and ice which made getting around interesting we found lots to do and places to go within the locallity.

Overall property very nice; although back bedroom not really suitable for adults. Besides that though every thing else was fantastic. We will certainly consider the property again if we come to holiday in Nailsworth again - but perhaps when the weather has warmed up and the side roads are easier to manage. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family Christmas was made perfect when we stayed in Orion Cottage. We feel the photographs didn't do it justice, it was much bigger than we expected and the facilities were amazing providing everything from towels, kitchen cupboard condiments to even shampoo! Tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained we will definitely be going back again. Thanks so much for making our Christmas very memorable.

Perfect and Charming

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better! The property was delightful, more spacious than expected and was in the perfect location for visits to the beautiful villages of the Cotswolds. Pat was extremely responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend the owners and this property.

beautiful location and cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a superb cottage in may ways.Everything you could possibly need is provided and the cottage is very homely. We had rain one morning and it was great to have music and board games available. The guidebook and phone numbers of local restaurants and takeaways was also very helpful for us.

As 5 adults we found the sleeping accommodation unsuitable - I was unaware that one bed was a child size, but it maybe I didn't read the description properly when we booking. Overall this was a wonderful cottage, that is well maintaind and exceptional in it's facilities and location.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very nice review that you provided for Orion Cottage! We have tried very hard to make our cottage as comfortable and practical as possible. We have taken on board your comments about the sleeping arrangements, we have made changes to the cottage description, it is definitely very comfortable up to four adults but not five. Again many thanks for the review and comments, they all help so much! Kind regards Pat

Visited with my 3 daughters, the cottage was really good with excellent views. The owners provided practically everything you could need on a break and more which was very nice and home feeling.
