“Cosy country cottage for two”
Reviewed October 25, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This lovely cottage should have appeared in ‘Amazing Spaces’ because it manages to get a living area, dining area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom in less than 250 square feet. Located in a quiet Warwickshire village set in lovely surroundings you are assured of a restful stay.

The owner, Barry, lives on site and goes that extra mile to ensure that everything you may need is available. He keeps the cottage and the surrounding grounds in lovely condition.

The cottage has been fitted out to a high standard from the quality of the kitchen and bathroom fittings to the linen and bed coverings. The heating is underfloor and makes the cottage the cosiest place we’ve ever stayed in.

The kitchen has a two ring halogen cooker, electric fan oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The dining area has a bar with two stools.

The bathroom has a bath with shower over, WC and wash basin.

The large television can be viewed from the settee in the living area or from the large double bed in the sleeping area. Wi-fi is available and free.

Outside there is a private patio area with a table and chairs plus a sun-lounger.

There is a local pub in the village about 10 minutes walk. A farm shop is less than a mile away. Banbury has a good range of shops and supermarkets and is about five miles away.

If you want a quiet country retreat with good customer service from the owner then look no further.

“Peaceful, picturesque, perfect.”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lavender cottage is perfect for two, if you don't need large areas of living space. It is compact,
whilst having everything needed for a short or long term stay, kitchen area with dishwasher,cooker, hob and extractor fan, fridge, dining and seating for two,sofa,wi-fi &tv,
The bed and bedding were superb, obviously of the best quality with crisp white sheets, and the bathroom was spacious with ,again,top of the range fittings.A private terrace area with seating and a table was an added bonus. Very clean and well cared for by Barry, who was very helpful and on hand if needed. Peaceful village setting, within easy reach of Banbury and Leamington, with lovely villages dotted around.

We stayed in the delightful Lavender Cottage for one week. The owner, Barry, has thought of everything. He lives in the grounds and nothing is too much trouble. A warm welcome awaits one and all. Highly recommended.

“Great location for exploring the North Cotswolds.”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Although Lavender Cottage is compact, it is beautifully designed to a very high specification.
The cottage lies within a delightful, secure, very well-maintained courtyard adjoining the picturesque Cotswold village of Warmington. Our host, Barry, ensured our requirements were fully met without being intrusive. We would and have recommended these cottages as a holiday destination.

“Beautiful area and very comfortable cottage”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent 4 days in Lavender Cottage and found it to be very well equipped, modern and extremely comfortable. Everything was very clean and of a superb quality. The location was lovely and really quiet, great for relaxing but also a good location for exploring the surrounding areas. Would recommend to anyone.
