Letter Box Cottage is a retreat for all seasons. Curl up in front of the fire in the living room and gaze at all the nooks and crannies, fire window and beams. In summer leave the front door open and look out on to the cottage garden with its collection of rambling roses and shrubs. Wander to the private seating area to whileaway an hour or two.

The cottage has a spacious dining room with a large inglenook fireplace. The two bedrooms, one with a bathroom and one with an en-suite shower room makes it ideal for couples, families or friends. Perfect for touring the Cotswolds and surrounding areas of Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford due to the location of Letter Box Cottage.

Ideally situated, Letterbox Cottage served us well for our stay in the Cotswolds. Holidaying with my mum who has restricted mobility and husband who enjoys walking, the location offered everything we could wish for, with Kiftsgate and Hidcote Gardens only a stone's throw away, and endless rambling opportunities for hubby to enjoy. The quaint cottage was warm and comfortable, but... more

I wanted to whisk my girlfriend away to a country retreat, and Letter Box Cottage seemed to have it all... that chocolate box character and charming country appeal. The owner seemed to be more than helpful in assisting me at first, allowing me to make a long weekend booking when they don't normally accept them, for which I was grateful.... more

Management response:

I am very sorry that you did not have hot water from Saturday evening onwards, this has never happened before as the boiler is only 2 years old and had been serviced in May. I was made aware of this problem when you phoned at 7.45 pm on Saturday saying that the boiler was making a dreadful noise and there... more

We loved staying here. The cottage was really comfortable and quaint. We enjoyed walking in the countryside and soaking up the atmosphere. Being a farmer himself , my husband enjoyed a few rounds of the paddock on the header with the owner at midnight on our way home from dinner. more
