A Quality place. The small things and big things were all really good quality. Making for a very comfortable peaceful relaxing stay.
Our holiday.was made special by the this beautiful cottage we stayed in. Set in lovely country side,we found this to be relaxing. The cottage is finished of to a high specification and is comfortable and quiet. We took advantage of the tennis court and would have used the heated out door pool if weather had been kinder.
Our hosts were very hospitable and friendly and would recommend this cottage.
We hope to in the future return again soon !
The location is perfect for exploring The Cotswolds and Oxford with good Walking,Cycling,Riding Schools and excellent local Pub food.
Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle, Cotswold Farm Park and the Model Village in Bourton on the Water are just a few of the many nearby attractions.
Chipping Norton approximately two miles away has very good shopping with, butchers, supermarkets, antique centre and coffee shops. Local fresh produce sold on market days.
The cottage is wonderfully warm, clean and very well equipped to a high standard and the log burner is an additional comfort for those dull wet evenings. The delightful owner Nicky, is nearby and always happy to help.
A really lovely find. Glymstone is a prettily converted barn attached to the owner's property, tucked away in the tiny hamlet of Lidstone. Attractively furnished, comfortable and spacious with the added bonus of a lovely shared swimming pool and brand new tennis court with sweeping views over surrounding countryside. The perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine & watch the sun set while the children enjoyed a knock about!
Although you do need a car due to it's tucked away location, it's perfectly placed to enjoy all the Cotswolds has to offer with plenty of pretty towns & villages with nice places to eat and drink close by. We really enjoyed our stay, the children loved the pool & tennis court and I loved the comfy bed, the excellent wet room & shower, the fluffy towels and bottle of wine on arrival! Thouroughly recommend.

WONDERFUL PROPERTY! High standard of finishing and fittings, everything a traveller could ask for. A getaway from it all location (literally!) Only qualms was slow internet... But then it a break away from it all and in the middle of the countryside so was to be expected.
We were really impressed with the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is very well presented, a great size and is in a perfect location...picturesque surroundings but only a few mins drive to Chipping Norton. We thought it was great value for money and could have happily stayed all week.
We've just returned to Thailand after having a wonderful 8 day stay over Xmas at Glymestone Cottage (not sure why the spelling is different on Trip Advisor?)
The cottage is in a lovely peaceful country setting yet only 10 mins from Chipping Norton and 20 mins from Banbury.
Good quality refurb and decoration with generally good range of pots, pans, crockery, cutlery etc. a knife sharpener and more full length mirrors would be helpful as would a few more basic supplies on arrival compared with many other cottages we have stayed in - Thou the decorated Xmas tree, bubbly and chocolates was a lovely touch - thank you Nicky.
The log burner and endless supply of chopped wood was very much appreciated in the cold weather and added extra character at night.
Longer sofas are large and comfy, internet speed is great and TV / DVD all worked well.
Beds were all comfy and nice quality bath sheets and hand towels supplied.
Central heating and hot water supply all worked well 24hrs a day.
Highly recommended and we would return if revisiting the area.
Thank you to Nick and Nicky!
