Before we even arrived Mark had sent over lots of information about the property and what we needed to know before we came. This was very useful. We were warmly welcomed by Sue at the Cotswolds Retreat with a bottle of wine! We enjoyed the sky package that was on offer and the indoor hot tub! Very relaxing. Bath was only about 25 mins away from the bungalow which was ideal. Castle Combe was very close by (a picturesque village) and Stow-on-the-Wold was an hour away. The village the bungalow is situated in is very quiet and quaint. We will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the Cotswolds.
Excellent clean bungalow,great friendly service,would highly recommend and we will returning, Mark was very helpful
Stayed for a couple of days rest and relaxation. The cottage is finished to a really high standard and has everything you could possibly need. Mark was very helpful and very friendly and gave advice on places to visit and eat out etc. Can't wait to come back again!
This property is in a small quiet village just off the main Fosse Way. The property is well looked after and well equipped. Mark is a great host who will always help with anything you may need to know. There is a small rear garden which is a great sun trap and good for sitting out with a drink and chilling out.
This property is great value for money and I will use again if in the area.
You are well located to get to most places of interest within 30 mins. drive. There is a pub in the village which you can walk to in 5 mins. which serves some good beers.
Perfect quiet getaway close to Chippenham and well located for visiting all the Cotswolds and Bath. Fabulous size accommodation and spotlessly clean. Thoroughly recommended.
I booked this little break away very last minute and wasn't disappointed. This is a little gem of a place tucked away in peaceful and pretty surroundings. We highly recommend the beautiful village of Castle Combe with its history and picturesque scenery, Tetbury, Badminton and Bath are all within an easy drive. Our host Mark was wonderful giving us many tips on local amenities and made us feel so welcome, the accommodation was fantastic for us, a large comfortable bed so a good nights sleep was guaranteed, the bathroom was sumptuous with an amazing spa bath, a perfect getaway and we felt very relaxed from the get go, I would recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a much needed change of pace and scenery, well done Mark for getting it right, everything has been thought of we wanted for nothing.
Gamster and I stayed at the Cotswold retreat for 2 nights early November.
Lovely apartment in the village. Comfy bed, kitchen with all we needed and a great bathroom that even features a Jacuzzi double bath. Gamster isn't a fan of baths - she gets hot and bothered, however I am 6 foot 4 and actually enjoyed just being able to fit in a bath and relax by myself :)
We were greeted by the hosts (Mark and Sue) who gave tour of the apartment and also tips and advice on the local area. Really nice people who made us feel very welcome without being imposing. A perfect balance.
Location is great for exploring the surrounding areas, a car helps but we didn't always use it. Taxis are available too if you fancy going out for a few drinks.
The village itself is so peaceful, its got a nice village pub.
To come from a city one day then wake up the next, open the door and hear nothing except the birds is very tranquil.
I have already recommended it to friends who want to visit the Cotswolds and would certainly go again.
Overall a great escape from the hustle and bustle of life, great apartment with the facilities you'd expect from a suite in a hotel
