We stayed there for a girls get together, it was a lovely place and the hot tub was such a nice luxury, the place was very clean and was supplied with towels and most general basic cupboard stuff!
Would definitely stay there again
The cottage itself is lovely and full of character. Inside it was well kitted out with good basic kitchen supplies including a fresh bottle of milk in the fridge. The Aga is a bit tricky to work out but we mostly ate out so didnt really bother us. As a family of 3 it accomodated us fine, with a double bed in the master and bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom. Unfortunately we felt the property was let down by the hot-tub, as this was one of the features we booked it for.
Firstly, although the hot tub is in a private patio area, to access it you have to go out of the front door, along a short path at the front of the cottage and through a side gate. The property faces a working horse riding school, so it's hardly ideal to have to scuttle out in your towel whilst a group of riders ambles past.
Secondly, although the rear aspect looks out over fields, the cottage is actually located on a national speed limit road which seems to be the main thoroughfare between the local villages. As a result there is fairly frequent traffic passing at high speed. The patio area enclosing the hot tub is in the part of the property that ajoins the road (about 10 feet from it), so it's not that relaxing when a lorry goes thundering by.
Lastly, because the property ajoins the riding school, if the wind blows in the wrong direction there is a noticeable whiff of animals and manure. This attracts a lot of tiny flies and bugs, which we were forever having to fish out of the tub. Again, somewhat detracting from the relaxation...
If you're not bothered about the hot tub or traffic noise, then this is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting, but if you want a relaxing soak then I would suggest looking elsewhere.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. The property is full of character and felt very homely with its warmth and sympathetic decoration. We particularly enjoyed the luxury of the hot tub which was a real treat after long cold days exploring nearby attractions like Oxford, Warwick Castle and Stratford upon Avon. All in all we had a glorious time and would stay here again without hesitation.
