“Amazing Property, Aggressive Landlord!”
Reviewed May 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

Arlington House was one of the most beautiful houses we’ve ever stayed in. Location was tranquil, house was huge and the garden space was lovely to use. Our group arrived and were instantly amazed by the property. We stayed 3 nights in total and could have easily stayed another 3 more. However, with no unkind remark against the property – I have to say that the landlord and neighbours were not ideal. We had a noise complaint for playing Frisbee in the garden at 5:30pm – so I would not recommend to those who want to use the garden to play in, especially if you have children who make noise. Also, we were an hour late checking out and before I could apologise to the landlord who turned up as we were packing, he started shouted at us telling us to get out of his house. Upset by this we all quickly left and unfortunately a guest left her ring in the shower. When we returned to ask for the ring back, the landlord told us to “F**k off” and we even felt quite threatened when he said “Go on, are you trying to make me angry?” I have never seen such hostile or unacceptable behaviour from a man who was three times our age – really dampened the whole experience. Nonetheless, the house was amazing – just be prepared to deal with an unkind owner.

I arrived at the property at 11.30am to find the gates barred, with 5 cars in the drive plus a large van parked outside the front door. Check out was supposed to be 10am. I entered the house, all the lights were still on, someone was asleep on the sofa in the lounge and numerous people were asleep upstairs. The guests were definately not packing when I arrived, they were sound asleep, no doubt hungover. It was obvious that Chloe had hosted a large scale party, there were stains all over the wooden floors and the kitchen was filthy. I had been led to believe that 6 guests were staying at the house and in our on-line conversations no mention had been made of Chloe hosting a party. The house has considerable sentimental value to me so I did become upset and angry when I saw the mess and damage to the house and contents. Outside there were cigarette/reefer butts all over the patio and porch and I could not believe the amount of drinks cans and bottles. These had been left in 10+ bin bags with all the other waste, no effort to separate them for recycling. I had to spend 4 hours going through the bags to take out the drinks cans, bottles and plastic so that all the other waste would fit into the wheelie bin.
Thankfully this was my first really bad experience in over 3 years and to be fair, Chloe did agree for the £125 deposit to be retained.

“Charming Cotswold House in stunning location”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The house is light, very roomy and comfortable with a beautiful garden. Amazing walks straight from the door. Lots to do in the village and nearby. A week wasn't long enough to do everything we wanted to do. Convenient for shopping for groceries in Bourton on the water or Stow. We had a really good lunch at the Manor hotel in Lower Slaughter. Can't wait to come back to this very special house.

“Beautiful country home”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We had an amazing couple of days in this beautiful Cotswolds home. The house is immaculate, well furnished and very comfortable. The wood burner in the lounge generates all the heat needed when the weather turns icy. The 3 bedrooms upstairs are beautiful with exceptionally comfortable beds! There is a beautiful full bathroom upstairs with a lovely claw foot bath tub and a great shower! The large kitchen downstairs is well equipped to whip up whatever your heart desires! My two boys loved running around in the spacious garden.

We loved going into Bourton on the Water which was a 20 minute walk from the house to feed the ducks and stroll the beautiful old streets.

This home is magical and we will definitely return soon!

Had a super holiday/break in this lovely house in the beautiful Lower Slaughter....this house is great for a family with children/friends - it provided everything we needed, very cosy, literally 5 min walk to the Mill Tea Room/Shop which is well worth a visit and Slaughter Country Inn/Slaughter Hotel (two min walk)....Bourton on the Water you can walk to in 20 mins, Stow on the Wold 5 mins by car....Bibury is well worth a visit too! - had a super time here and will return...thank you!

Big old house. Very lovely, beautiful spaces and well appointed. Great kitchen! Quiet, character filled and well located. Spooky at night, which added immensely to the experience. Should have stayed longer. A really good experience.
