Have just spent a pre- Christmas weekend break with family staying at The Crook cottage. This cottage does not live up to its web site photos or description of its amenities, it was a let down. The walls and paintwork need decorating as they are marked and scuffed, The living room is very small for six adults with inadequate uncomfortable... more

We have visited the Cotswolds many times and love it! This visit, we elected to stay at the Crook. There were a number of deficiencies which the "guest services manager" was not willing to resolve in a reasonable period of time including phone service which was not in working order. The unit itself would have been adequate with appropriate attention... more

Management response:

The following response is from the owner’s appointed Property Management company who run the maintenance and call out support for The Crook. The guest suggested that this is the job of Character Cottages, which is not correct. Character Cottages is the letting agent and is not responsible for the operations of The Crook. Response from the management company: “We received... more
