“Great place for a quiet getaway”

My wife and I spent a long weekend at Ratty's: it was fabulous! We enjoyed the quiet country village atmosphere and the very attractive grounds of Ratty's itself, with its bubbling stream. We also found a very nice, inexpensuive restaurant just down the road and had a splendid meal.

Beautiful cottage, in amazing surroundings, with every luxury thought of and included in the price. Attention to detail makes the stay an absolute pleasure. We would recommend this to anyone who wants to find a little bit of heaven! We will definitely return. Thank you linda for a Christmas we will remember always.

“Ideal retreat for a romantic break in the Cotswolds”

Smart, comfortable cottage with plenty of natural light...with an unexpected touch of luxury. The owner of Ratty's Retreat went to great lengths to make our stay extra special - we had everything we needed. I particularly loved the special touches in the bathroom - candles, luxury bath foams, etc.

We had a relaxing stay in a superb setting. The historic village itself is worth visiting - it's very quaint. And if you don't fancy cooking, there's a nice pub down the road (the great western arms) worth visiting - the staff was friendly and the food was nice.

This cottage is certainly a must for those who want a romantic retreat in the Cotswolds.

“Ratty's Retreat”

This was the last place that we stayed at during our trip to the UK. If this had been the first place we stayed at, we would not have wanted to go anywhere else. This was probably the nicest place we have stayed in since we stayed at a 5 star hotel in Hawaii. The cottage was set in a perfectly beautiful setting in Southwest England. It is an hour train ride into London from here. We also visited Portsmouth and Stonehenge and many other rustic little towns in the Cotswolds. If we ever go back to that part of England again, you can be sure that we will try and book this cottage again.
