“Lovely Cotswold cottage, stunning scenery”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Hope Cottage for a few nights in the summer with my parents and it was just beautiful. High up with stunning views, the cottage is the perfect Cotswold location. Newly renovated, the cottage is modern, clean and has everything you need for a break. The pub 3 minutes down the road is very convenient too! We would definitely recommend and return to Hope Cottage!

“The perfect country cottage”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Very clean, fresh and comfortable cottage, both myself, husband and my three kids loved our time there. It was so relaxing, we had lovely walks each evening wandering around and then ending up in the local pub, which was very friendly and were able to have a lovely drink out side with the children. My children loved exploring the area and we felt it was very safe for them. We really enjoyed having a relaxing peaceful breakfast each morning in the little garden which had great views. Sarah was very friendly and helping giving us great ideas/advice of where to go and what to see and do in the area. Thanks for a really lovely holiday!

“Fantastic peaceful cottage to escape and relax”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Hope Cottage is situated in a quiet and peaceful village, off the beaten track. The cottage is clean and has all the comforts of home. The fireplace is a great feature as is the picture window on the first floor which provides views that you can loose yourself in. There is a friendly local pub within walking distance. I enjoyed visiting nearby Stroud with its second hand shops and exellent farmers market. A very relaxing weekend away.

“Amazing View”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just returned from a four night stay at Hope Cottage and to cut a long story short its amazing. Inside it is immaculately clean, definitely has that homely feeling, on an evening you can have your man or woman for that matter stoking up a roaring fire in the log burner. We were very fortunate to have fabulous weather and had a bbq on an evening which was the best, as the view is fabulous from the gem of a garden. Even Alfie our dog seemed to be taken by it!

The cottage is in a fabulous area and places like Cirencester and Bourton-on-the-Water are only short drives away, also plenty of walks around the village with a welcoming beverage after a long days walk at the local pubs which have very friendly natives! ;D

All in all a brilliant holiday you will not be disappointed if you stay here. Ooh just one thing make sure you don't lock yourself out, not the best idea. Fortunately Sarah the owner saved us from an evening under
the stars. Thanks again for that Sarah!

“Idyllic stay at Hope Cottage”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a lovely weekend staying in Hope Cottage, the place is clean, bight and well appointed. Basic like tea, coffee and milk were supplied. The patio is a fantastic little sun trap and we enjoyed a very sunny afternoon soaking up the beautiful views.

There are a couple of good food pubs within walking distance and a Tesco in the next village that is open late 7 days a week.
Would be very happily to go back again.

“Fabulous dog friendly cottage with high standards and Lovely furnishings”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our first visit to the cotswolds, but we regularly stay in cottages, with our dogs around the UK. we found this Beautiful cottage in France lynch. Me and my husband stayed there with our two dogs for a 5 day break in july. Very pretty and quiet village location. Parking facilities and a small garden with lovely views. Spotlessly clean and furnished beautifully,( you would not guess that they accepted dogs as it really was spotlessly clean.) Fresh bedding and a very comfortable bed.
We spent our days exploring the local villages and towns and enjoying beautiful walks. we happily relaxed in the cottage in the evening, watching the tv and reading in front of the log burner. The locals were very friendly, as is the owner. An absolute gem in the Cotswolds.
If I had to make any suggestion, it would be to have milk, and sugar available on arrival because we forgot to bring milk and had to go out straight away, forgot to buy sugar, so had to go out again!
also to have a bowl of dog water available outside, saves the owners having to dig out their bowl straight away and just makes the place feel a bit more dog friendly.
