“Idyllic cottage full of character!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed here for a weekend with another couple and had the most amazing time. It was just a short walk from Burford town which has some wonderful little shops to browse, and close to a couple of pubs too. Back at the cottage, we were impressed with the kitchen, which looked newly fitted, the lounge with a big corner sofa, Sky TV and Internet, although personally I come to a cottage like this to get away from all the modern commodities. It was cold enough to warrant putting on the log burner, which worked a treat and smelt wonderful. The handle on which was missing, however when we mentioned it to the owners they had been made aware by the previous tenant that it was broken and it had been taken away to be fixed.
Upstairs the rooms were cosy and well decorated.
We would definitely recommend a visit here to all our friends, and have! My brother and sister in law plan to go in the new year.

“pretty cottage in idylic place but v tired inside”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This cottage is in a lovely little lane, very quiet and within easy walk of Burford where there are lots of shops and pubs. it has a very pretty garden out the back but the garden furniture was quite uncomfortable and a bit rusty.
it had a lovely kitchen but was a bit short on utensils etc and they were a bit grubby.
the beds were comfortable.
Due to the layout of the cottage the bathroom was downstairs. it was a bit tatty with black mould on the bath seal and it also smelt a lot of damp as apart from the window there was no ventilation.
the log fire too was in a strange place not in the lounge but the dining area. we didnt use it. there was a sofa on that area to but to one side of the fire so not really somewhere to snuggle up in the winter.
the lounge was the most disappointing area. the carpet was dirty and stained as was the sofa and there were cobwebs on the light fittings. it was quite dark which is probably good thing.
it is a shame as there are good things about this property but it just needs to be cleaned and kept better
