I grew up in Witney and now live in Cheltenham. I feel very lucky to have this beautiful part of the world on my doorstep. My commute across the Cotswolds each day has to be one of the best around! Having joined StayCotswold from the world of European holiday lets, sourcing some of the best villas across Europe for the most discerning of travellers – now being able to bring travellers to the Cotswolds, placing them in one of our incredible properties and giving them tips on where to go and what to see is a real privilege.
Favourite Cotswold Area: It has to be Stow on the Wold which has an abundance of character and some of the best pubs, cafés and boutique shops around.
Ideal Property: On a golf course!

Kia Ora! I’m Jaime and I’ve recently joined the StayCotswold Dream team to tackle Marketing, and administration. I’ve flown half way around the world to be here and I am definitely feeling blessed to work in such a gorgeous area! It certainly didn’t take me long to fall in love with the Stunning Cotswold Cottages and Homes, that I have the privilege of working with! I have an OCD eye for detail and love the social design marketing aspect! I like to think I will bring a modern yet querky aspect to the team!
My Favourite Cotswold area: Bourton-On-The-Water for its gorgeous charm and unique aspect of the river running directly through the centre of the village!
My Ideal Property:
Something with a Vintage Roll Top Bath, modern but BIG kitchen and a seriously good view!

I’m the Operations Manager at StayCotswold – in other words I am StayCotswold's OCD and compliance matriarch! Property and the Law are my two passions so I get to feed both of them on a daily basis, whilst working with some truly stunning properties in my favorite part of the country.
My Perfect Sunday: A nice long walk in the Cotswolds, ending up at a traditional pub for a yummy roast dinner and glass of wine by the fire. 
Ideal Property: A cottage with a big kitchen and its own vineyard.

I manage the property maintenance and grounds of StayCotswold's outstanding properties with conservation very much in mind. I grew up around Witney and Chipping Norton, and what I love about the Cotswolds is its abundance of wildlife of which I regularly see on my field walks around the Cotswolds and whilst I am out and about at our properties.
