Loved Our Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was PERFECTT!!!! If we could rate it a !0, it would be a 10+. When we arrived, we were welcomed with a bottle of Bubbly in the refrigerator and chocolate! Upon booking our stay, Neil was excellent. He made everything precise which made the transaction without hassle. We loved the town of Cirencester; the people were lovely! We fell in love with the place! We walked everywhere unless we ventured out onto the countryside. If we got lost, we would look for the church steeple! The location of the apartment was perfect for sightseeing trips throughout the Cotswolds. There are so many excellent places to dine, and a couple of great grocery stores nearby. During our stay, there were two open markets in the town center. Cirencester has a great Roman history with several sites and a museum in town . We highly recommend this property in every way! Thank you Neil providing such a wonderful place during our stay in the Cotswolds. We do hope to have the opportunity to return!

Cirencester a beautiful town in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely the rooms were a delight and it was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop yet we where only a few minutes walk into the middle of Cirencester.

Lots of nice shops and bars

We all four of us agreed that we would put this on our list to return again,

Thanks Neil

Wonderful New Year's Eve Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Neil's apartment in Cirencester for a week across New Year's Eve 2016/2017 and had a thoroughly wonderful time. The visit was made so positive by a number of factors:

1. The responsiveness of Neil to our initial booking request and then communication, throughout, was excellent. We knew precisely what was happening, what was available to us, what was expected of us, where to go and how to get there at all times. All correspondence was very clear and we appreciated that greatly. Of particular value were the decorations to the parking spot - our GPS was somewhat confused and without Neil's written instruction we'd have been circling Cirencester for hours! It was also good to know, in advance, that the street on which the property sits is very narrow.

2. The apartment itself was impeccable, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything that we needed - and probably more. We spent a lot more time in the accommodation than we had initially expected to, simply because it was so comfortable and so pleasant.

3. Cirencester is a charming market town and the very centre of the town is a mere 5min (slow) walk from the apartment. There is a range of nice cafes, bars, restaurants and shops within short walking distance and we sampled many of them. The nearby Corinium Museum was a nice way to spend an hour or two and it was very easy to strike out into the fantastic countryside. Great apartment, great location.

One thing to be aware of - Cirencester is not an "open all hours" place so, if you're coming from a big city, be aware that things might close a little more early than you're used to. If you arrive with that in mind, you'll have a terrific time.

Superb property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The period entrance hall sets the scene for this delightful

Period property.Coxwell Court is situated in the centre of town on a remarkably quiet street.The property has been

Refurbished to a high standard and is tastefully furnished.The open plan sitting room has lovely views over the courtyard gardens.It is difficult to believe the property is in the centre of town! The kitchen,although compact, is well equipped and had a tea tray laid ready for our arrival(and milk in the fridge)- a thoughtful gesture.The bed was very comfortable and dressed with crisp white bed linen.

The property is in a perfect location with many great places to eat and drink , just minutes away. There are also many wonderful independent shops to browse around.Ideally situated, this property is the perfect base to explore the Cotswolds .......stay and enjoy!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely remodeled flat. We found everything we needed and could walk to everything. We appreciated the kitchen being well stocked with kitchen items for us to cook with. We would have liked a couch that we didn't slide off of. Maybe one a little taller. The lady at the gate made sure we were able to park in the back and questioned us about who we were renting from. We did get locked out one night and had to come through the unit to the back to open it up. This place is good for adults but not sure about children. Seemed as though there were many retired folks living at the property. The property is well kept and the gardens are beautiful.
