“Lovely Yew Tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Yew Tree Cottage is one of the loveliest places you could wish to stay- in my case, the perfect peaceful break from London and hectic family life. All the good stuff that others before me have said is entirely true so I won’t regurgitate, other than to say that Vivien’s warm and relaxed approach to hosting is no doubt what gives this place its special charm- not to mention her wonderful cooking and delightful homey, kitchen complete with Aga and those divine dogs. Worth saying the location is ideal for anyone wishing to avoid the more hectic tourist spots but within easy reach of all you would wish to see- and has some absolutely wonderful circular walks right from the front door, with breathtaking Cotswolds views.

Thanks so much Vivien, hopefully see you again before too long!

On a 2 week UK trip from US, we had been in London for a week & looking forward to getting into the country. Not knowing much about the Cotswolds, we arrived in Northleach somewhat late & called to get directions. A few miles from the village is a much smaller village of Turkdean which seemed very isolated. We were welcomed by Vivien with a beautiful cottage & warm fire. What a nice oasis after London & driving for hours. Our room & bath were impeccable & nicely furnished & stocked. The bed was a dream after a lumpy, hard bed in London flat. And it was so quiet we could finally sleep well. The breakfast was perfect mix of fruit, cereal, toast, juice & homemade jams. Vivien offered to make eggs & bacon as well. Northleach is central to a range of sights in the area so we were busy visiting villages, Blenheim Palace, and stately manors. We stayed for 3 nights & were sad to leave. We can't wait to get back to England & hope to stay here again. Thank you Vivien!

We read the great reviews of Yew Tree Cottage on TripAdvisor and decided to book for two nights. We were not disappointed!

Yew Tree Cottage is very well appointed and cosy. It has two bedrooms. We chose the one with exposed beams as it was the largest and we had a lot of luggage. It does not have ensuite facilities but this was fine as the modern bathroom is just across the corridoor. The other bedroom is slightly smaller but does have ensuite.

Vivien is a delightful host and made us feel very welcome. She provided a great breakfast, including fresh plums from the garden. We have no hesitation in recommending Yew Tree Cottage in the peaceful village of Turkdean. We are sure you will love it.

Room Tip: The room with the exposed beams is really lovely and looks out to the old village church.

Yew Tree Cottage B&B was one of the nicest places we stayed at, in our 3 week tour of England and Wales. It is a charming, renovated cottage full of character - the quintessential “English cottage” as imagined by most Australians. Set in a lovely, quiet location with birds singing at your windows in the morning, and surrounded by immaculate gardens. It has an ideal central location for touring the Cotswolds. Our helpful host Vivien knows the area so well. She gave us great advice on the best places to visit, based on our interests, and she leant us a handy detailed map. Vivien cooked a traditional English Breakfast that used fresh, local produce including tasty mushrooms and tomatoes that were to die for. Note that the village of Turkdean is just a Church and handful of cottages - we deliberately chose it for its ‘remoteness’ and enjoyed the solitude, and yet the nearest main-road towns are only 10 minutes drive away, so we had a choice of places for evening meals etc.

We stayed for 2 nights at Yew Tree Cottage with Vivien in early October. It is an idyllic place to stay - in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, Our Gables bedroom was cosy and the bathroom beautiful. Vivien and her lovely dogs made the perfect hosts and served the best breakfast of our whole trip - perfect poached plums from the garden with lovely thick yoghurt before her full English feast - delicious! Beautiful Yew Tree Cottage really is the perfect place to stay in the Cotswolds.

We stayed with Vivien in her most beutiful cottage for 4 nights. Everything was just perfect. The village and setting of the cottage was outstanding and the interior and comfort something to dream about.
Vivienne was so helpful with her advice on places to visit.
We would certainly stay again if ever in the area.

We stayed in this beautiful cottage in the end of August for just one night. The cottage is lovely, as is Vivien. She provided us with very helpful information about the local area, places to visit, as well as an excellent recommendation for dinner. Breakfast was also delicious with fresh fruit and muesli and a full english breakfast. If we are in the Cotswolds again, we won't hesitate to book again at the Yew Tree Cottage.
