Short break in the Cotswolds
Outstanding location, and a delightful property. Kind and attentive hosts. Short drive to Tetbury and the arboretum. Couldn't be better, we will be back as soon as we can.

4/5 Good

Great place to stay to explore the local attractions.
Fabulous spot and excellent hosts in a lovely picturesque location within the walled garden. Very comfortable bedrooms and living space although slightly let down by a few oversights on other furniture and kitchenware that didn’t match the spec of the property. Would also have been good if the TV was a smart TV- particularly with our teenagers. However a lovely stay and would recommend.

Simply wonderful stay - we hope to be back soon!
We had such an enjoyable stay at Park End Cottage over May half term break. The accommodation is beautifully renovated, organised and decorated with plenty of space for a family of four. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and had freshly cut flowers from the owners' amazing gardens on display in many of the rooms. The kitchen is very well stocked with any cooking gadget or accessory you might need. The grounds are stunning and honestly quite magical with gorgeous views out onto the countryside. The owners, Fionna and David, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, greeting us with the freshest eggs from their own happy chickens and homemade muffins when we arrived. They had great recommendations for villages, attractions and super pubs and restaurants (Cat & The Custard Pot in Shipton Moyne and William's in Nailsworth are not to be missed!). They also treated our children to a sheep shearing demo, a trip next door to feed the chickens and even set up their garden sprinkler for the children to run through on the hotter days. The cottage is such a great base for exploring the idyllic nearby villages of Tetbury, Malmesbury, Nailsworth and Stroud (be sure not to miss the farmers' market there on Saturdays - another Fionna recommendation and it was superb). I could go on and on about how fab this place is and it's definitely at the top of our list for UK holiday rentals. We hope to be back soon! Many many thanks, F + D.
