Great House Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful 3 night stay, it was a perfect escape from the city! The house is simply beautiful and very nicely done inside. We had no issues during our stay but Joan was available to meet us which was nice. Looking forward to coming back next year!

A beautiful house and a perfect setting for a hen do!! Great friendly host and even had fresh bed for us on arrival. The swimming pool was available and was just like a hot bath!! Amazing! Everything was perfect and we all had a great evening in front of the roaring log burner...Cotswolds hospitality at its best. Would really recommend this as a country getaway.

Pleasant

  • 4 of 5

There were 9 of us that stayed here in May the location and views were lovely,, although a little awkward to find through Rencombe village itself you had to go down a very narrow dirt track but once familiar with it fine. The rooms were nice, plenty of space for large parties, we all felt though that little things could be improved on for the price category this was in, ie decent kettle (we had to stop using as badly furred and boil water) toaster too small for large parties, better quality toilet paper, the bbq wasn't fit to use needed a real good clean, dogs were welcome but not allowed off the lead (this wasn't mentioned till we were there) swimming pool you have to pay extra to have it heated. The owner was helpful. Overall a pleasant stay but little things let it down.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, I have noted your comments on the toaster, and the kettle has been replaced, there is also an Aga kettle and two Aga toasters The lane is entirely tarmaced and so is the drive, and not a dirt track. I am very sorry about the bbq we do ask guests to clean it if they use it. When the farmer has livestock in the adjoining fields we do advise that dogs are kept on a lead.
