“Quant village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Such a lovely little area to visit. Good walk around the village. Lovely old roads, can see why they use this village for some many period dramas. A bit of a wait but good food served in the local

“Quintessentially English Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This must be the most beautiful village in the southern Cotswolds.
We visited here after finding out that it had been named the most picturesque village in Britain a number of years ago.
We weren't disappointed. In a place like this, it's hard to take a bad photo and the ambiance is lovely. We only wish we could have spent the night.
However, we had one of the better cream teas of our trip from the Castle Inn (scones still warm from the oven!) while sitting in the September sun and soaking in the atmosphere of a bygone time.
Note that parking is extremely limited and tour buses do make their way here so it can get a little crowded, but if you time it right you won't be disappointed.

“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

It is a beautiful quaint little village and totally unspoiled. There are so many photo opportunities in this village and you certainly need to take the time to make the most of this opportunity.

“Its like being in the village of Downton Abbey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

A little village that packs a massive punch of old England. A very historical village and a great place to walk about and explore
