Lovely, well equipped cottage in a fab location. Was perfect for our trip to the Cotswolds for a triathlon. Great to have access to the spa afterwards. Sarah was a fab host- excellent communication.

Great accomodation & facilities in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Jess Cottage for 1 week with our 2 children. Although the house is a little on the small side for the 4 of us, we were out most of the time so it didn't really matter. There is a pool - indoor if the weather is bad, and outdoor if the weather is good. Our kids loved it. There are also lovely walks and the cotswolds ' beach' nearby. We weren't short of things to do and will definitely return.

Lovely cottage in an amazing devolopment

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this cottage justice, We loved our stay her over the Easter weekend. the owner even left us Easter eggs and an Easter egg hunt that the kids loved. The cottage is set on a fantastic development with everything for a great weekend inc, spa, 2 outdoor heated pools, 2 tennis courts, kids playgrounds and 5 side aside football pitch. The spa is lovely and can not recommend enough. We will definitely be going back.

Cette maison confortable est située dans un cadre très vert et calme, idéal pour passer un bon momen

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette résidence au calme, entourée d'une belle végétation et de lacs sur lesquels il est possible de faire de nombreuses activités (paddle, kayak, pêche) et de longues promenades. Le Spa (piscine couverte) et les piscines découvertes chauffées permettent de nager par tout temps.

Cette maison très confortable est située dans un cadre idéal pour passer un bon moment en famille au calme.
