“Lovely stay in a great location”

We had a lovely stay at the Cotswolds Retreat over New Years Eve. Sue met us upon arrival and gave us lots of useful information and made us feel very welcome. The whole place is very clean and there are lots of helpful little notes dotted around. As others have also commented, we found the bed to be exceptionally comfortable. The location is great, we visited Malmesbury and Castle Combe where there are some nice little walks. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely be returning. Thank you to Mark and Sue for such a lovely stay and for making the whole booking process so straightforward.

“Brilliant little bungalow with fantastic facilities”

Sorry this review has come a little late! The weekend we had down in the cotswolds was lovely and it was all down to this fantastic bungalow and the brilliant service provided by Mark and Sue. Sue met us at the start of our stay and was incredibly friendly in welcoming and showing us everything inside. Mark as well came over halfway through our stay to introduce himself and make sure that everything was to our liking. The price for the 4 nights was very good value for money and although we booked at the last minute we had no issues in arranging everything. Thank you once again Mark and Sue and we hope to come back soon.

“Great Holiday Home in Beautiful Cotswolds!”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We decided to stay here for 2 reasons. The commute time from Bristol (Only 30 minutes on a Friday night!), and the jacuzzi!!!
We were not disappointed.
The whole place was immaculate and well kept and the jacuzzi bath was amazing. More than enough room for two! We were met on arrival by Sue who was lovely and very welcoming and told us to get in touch if we needed anything, though we didn't really need to, everything was great and there was useful information dotted around the place. We were also pleasantly surprised that they had added a little welcome gift of the Sky package, this came in handy as it rained non stop whilst we were there! Oh, and such a comfy bed. I wish we could have taken it with us!
The location was great, just a few miles away from Castle Combe and in the vicinity of some lovely pubs. We had a really lovely and peaceful time here and will definitely be returning!

“Relax in comfort and explore at leisure”

couldn't ask for a warmer welcome. The cottage was very clean and tidy. Enjoyed lazing away the hours sitting in the garden reading, and watching the large variety of bird life.
We visited lots of the tourist hot spots, spoilt for choice as so many to choose from.
One of our favourites was Bath, such a mix of beautiful buildings and shops. Was fun just sitting outside a restaurant, eating lunch, and watching the tourists. If you go there use the park and ride.
Mark and Sue are very nice people, always available if needed, but not hovering around when you are chilling out., We were always glad to "get home and relax" after a busy day taking in the sights. Was a very enjoable week and we were sorry to leave.

We stayed here for our third wedding anniversary. The place was really easy to find and very true to what you see from the photo's.
It is in a perfect location for all the local attractions and also the village pub that is just around the corner is a little gem with great food and reasonable priced drinks.
The retreat is very spacious and more then enough room for two, the bed is also amazing and so comfortable.
It has a great bath room and even better shower, as this was our first time renting a holiday let we were very pleased with the place.
