“Perfect English cottage in perfect English village”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The owners were extremely helpful, and we appreciated the extra touches of flowers and wine on arrival. We loved the cosy lounge and log fire, and the pretty village and welcoming pub with lovely food. Would certainly be very happy to go there again.

“Lovely cottage. Beautiful location”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in bluebell cottage for a long weekend. It has everything you need. Beautiful views, peaceful location and a really nice pub just down the road. The cottage is clean and tidy with a modern feel. The area is very pretty and took several walks round. Would recommend it for couples or families. There is a large green outside with plenty of space to play as well.

“Quintessentially english!”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was our favourite spot on our 9 week trip to the UK & Europe!
Great Tew is breathtakingly beautiful & the cottage fits into its landscape perfectly. It is comfortable, homely & well equipped but most importantly for us it was super quiet & we slept like logs during our stay!
We loved the Falkland Arms, it was a little too handy!!! :-) The food & ales there were superb & it was relaxing to sit with the locals & chill out after a hard days sightseeing!
As others have mentioned Great Tew is in a brilliant location for exploring the Cotswolds. We loved visiting Blenheim Palace, another highlight of our extensive trip.
Thank you Karen!

“The Perfect Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fresh flowers in the dining room and kitchen as well as a nice bottle of wine greeted us on arrival. As a multi-generational family group with a teenager, this was the perfect cottage. The three bedrooms gave each of us privacy, the wi-fi worked great (very important with a teenager!), the pub was only steps away, the kitchen was super well equipped and we were in the middle of the most beautiful countryside.

“Lovely relaxing chill out week”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a fabulous cottage, we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Fresh flowers and the provision of tea, coffee, milk etc all available on arrival is a very special touch, not normally expected. The cottage was beautifully clean, bright and modern inside. Ideally situated, it took us no more than 30-45 minutes each day to visit places of interest, ie Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Bourton on the Water etc. a wonderful place hidden from the hustle and bustle of city life. Will hope to visit again. Thank you so much.
