Value for money studio
Good location and great value little studio. It is very small and is better suited for max 2 pple for 1-2 days. We were there in Nov snow and it was a bit cold. But wld be fine in spring summer.
Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2021

4/5 Good

Good location for a 1-2 nighter
The listing showed us all we needed to know about the property description and the owners communicated well during the booking process with very good directions, access instructions and an offer to show us around on arrival. The property had all you would need to cook with even a complimentary bottle of milk, cereal, tea and coffee provided. The property felt clean with lovely bedding for both the bed and the futon and towels provided. It was very compact, the travel cot for our 8 month old would not fit in the bedroom so we had to cook and eat early as she went down to sleep in the kitchenette. We took to the bedroom to stream some TV on our laptop with the free WiFi. We really struggled and could not get streaming to work. The owners were kind enough to respond to messages that evening as we were struggling. Sadly the laptop wouldn't work so we eventually (with the help of the owners resetting their box etc) were able to stream on one of our mobiles. We had all we needed, but a couple of extra touches we thought might be nice were: a little lamp on the desk in the kitchenette for ambience so no need for ceiling lights to be on, a couple of coat hooks in the kitchenette, maybe a bit more made of the outside seating area i.e. fairy lights to make it more appealing, and a TV with free view in the bedroom. If any family has their child sleeping on the futon it would be nice to have the option for a TV in the bedroom. However, all in all a good base for a couple of nights, well situated, and nice hosts. Thanks Phil and Debbie.

Lovely little apartment
I stayed here with my friend and my 11 month old son for one night so we could visit the Cotswold wildlife park. Perfect location for this as it's only 20 minutes away from the park. The apartment was very clean and tidy but was quite small but had everything we needed and was able to accommodate myself and my son's travel cot in one room and my friend used the sofa bed. Check in was very easy and the host was very accommodating and even moved his car so we could both park on the drive. The only thing I found difficult was finding the property, I had to do a couple of drive bys down the road to spot it so a more obvious sign from the road would be useful. Other than this it was a great stay and I would book again

3/5 Okay

OVERNIGHT STOPOVER
The studio is very small and compact. It was nice to have access to a small outside space but this was marred by being next to an oil tank which was very smelly so could not sit out because of the fumes. The bed was extremely comfortable. Sleep was disturbed because of being situated on a fairly busy main road. Blind in shower room pulled down ok but unable to retract. Needed to pull down at night as headlights from traffic lit up the bedroom. Milk and cereal provided was welcome. There were some biscuits in a jar. One was fully wrapped. The other was open and some had been used. In my view thise should have been removed and replaced with a fresh unopened pack, particularly in the light of COVID 19.

5/5 Excellent
