Located in the tiny hamlet of Turkdean, this wonderful B & B with beautifully maintained gardens is idyllically located without being isolated. Vivien welcomes you to her entire house and accommodates all reasonable requests. Read the website to understand the location and facilities. One night we were treated to an unusual "Floral Choral Evensong at the beautifully decorated tiny church... More

If you want charming, this is it! I had an absolutely fantastic time at the Yew Tree Cottage. It exceeded my expectations. The B&B and Gardens- Everything was just spectacular and beautiful. The house was so cozy and the bed and the guestroom were VERY comfortable. I slept so well in the Beamed Bedroom-a fantastic option! I loved Vivien's décor... More

We booked this in June. You would think that a booking ahead of a September event that far in advance would be respected. Sadly not. We were given to understand that a HUGE favour was being done for us taking a one night reservation (ahem? This is a B&B) we had to book one night because we are travelling abroad... More

This is your second vitriolic Review regarding a September reservation.. Your heading is totally untrue and you have NOT stayed at the cottage in August as you state. When I took your reservation for September I informed you that I do not normally take one night bookings at weekends but as you were coming for a local event I would... More

Have stayed in the Cotswolds several times; Yew Tree was one of the more lovely cottages that'd work well as a movie location (I'd appreciate a finder's fee, Vivien). Short drive to classic sites like Hidcote Garden, the Slaughters, Broadway, Chipping Camden. Coolest kitchen with plank table and views out over her beautiful gardens, which we enjoyed with a bottle... More

Ended up at Yew Tree after we've been let down by a doubble booking at a nerby B&B. That was a good thing in retrospective. We had a wonderful stay. Lovely room, good breakfast in the cosy country kitschen. If you are a garden lover like me, this is the place to be. Thank you Vivien for two lovely days!

We spent two nights with Vivien in her beautiful cottage. If you want a great Cotswold experience this is the place to stay. We found Vivien to be a friendly lovely lady who has three gorgeous dogs. The gardens are delightful and Vivien provided everything for a lovely relaxing stay. The whole cottage is so quaint and just what I... More

I stayed here in December 2014 for a wedding in nearby Northleach. Coincidentally, another couple from the same wedding party were also staying, so we made travel plans to arrive together in their car (I had travelled down from the North of England by train). The cottage is lovely and the rooms are quaint, HOWEVER, similarly to other reviewers here,... More

We stayed for two nights in March this year and fell in love with the Cotswolds and the cottage. The cottage is positioned in a beautiful hamlet surrounded by incredible countryside. It overlooks a stunning church and Vivien's beautiful garden. The cottage is also very ŵell positioned for breathtaking walks which Vivien's provides a map for. The cottage is warm,... More
