"Cosy house, beautifully decorated for Christmas that provided a wonderful space for friends to catch up. The village was very picturesque and close to a very pleasant dog-friendly pub. The house is well-provisioned for self catering. There is a little community shop just around the corner. Any questions we had during our stay were quickly answered."

“Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location, great pub down the road. We were seven adults and five children (aged 5 and under) and it was entirely suitable for all of our needs. The cottage is completely accurate against the description, and Jaime was a brilliant help before our stay. Would highly recommend! Thank you so much for your hospitality, myself and our friends (and our 5 children under 5!) all had a really wonderful time. It was perfect. Thank you also for all of your help leading up to this weekend"

“Had a lovely time, although we didnt explore the area too much as we were only there for the weekend, we did manage to trip to the Five Alls Inn. Would highly recommend. Great little place, the fire was amazing. Thank you.”

The cottage was booked for a week to act as a base for my son's wedding at Filkins but also for my wife to enjoy a few days on our own; we know the Cotswolds reasonably well but not this particular area around Lechlade. The number of bedrooms allowed family members to stay with us. However due to unforeseen circumstances we had to curtail our stay to just 3 days. However, the cottage was superb and was just what we wanted for our family base. Spotlessly clean with excellent facilities, the kitchen had everything that you could have wanted. It opened out into a conservatory/dining area ideal for family breakfasts whilst the dining room was ideal for a meal, cooked in the impressive surroundings of the kitchen. The bedrooms were of ample size although we only used one, and an upstairs bathroom was supplemented by a lovely downstairs shower room. The heating was excellent and there was ample hot water. The most impressive thing though (apart from its proximity to the excellent Five Alls pub) was its 'homeliness'. It was a pleasure to come back after a day out and be able to relax in a warm, welcoming living room with an abundance of comfy sofas and armchairs (before heading to The Five Alls!!).

"We enjoyed our week at Gasson’s View. The accommodation was roomy and the beds very comfortable. The house is well equipped and clean. The courtyard seating area is very pleasant and the garden is beautifully shaded, so ideal for the children. The village is well situated for visits to various Cotswold attractions. When the toaster broke, it was replaced very speedily and the staff at Staycotswold were very helpful."

“My friends and I loved staying here - the cottage is super cute, well equipped and very spacious. There were 8 adults in our group but it never felt cramped. The kitchen and outside area are great for sunny days/nights and the living room is nice and cosy for the evenings. The cottage is in a very nice location, with a small shop and outdoor swimming pool just 2 minutes walk away. There's a nice pub 5 minutes away and several others within a 10-15 minute drive. The team were great at answering all my questions and requests and even recommended some nearby pubs and taxis for us during our stay, and left us a cake and goodies for when we arrived. Definitely recommend! We had a delightful stay and the StayCotswold team were ace at replying to my numerous requests to quickly! ”

We had the most wonderful stay at Millie and Fergus’s place. The cottage itself is beautiful and the thoughtful touches were so kind; everything needed for a cosy fire as well as some delicious local treats. The local pub also serves great food - we had a great time!

''This is a gorgeous 18th century cottage located in a stunning village. Went there for a weekend in January with some friends and it couldn’t have been better! The space is beautiful and cosy with original stone, operating fireplaces, which all connects to a bright modern kitchen/solarium. It’s beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and close to lots of gorgeous hiking around the Cotswolds. Our hosts were 5 stars, helped us out with some ideas for hikes, and provided us with some nice touches like local coffee and muesli. I would definitely come back or recommend it to a friend! Thanks for a great weekend!''

We stayed at Gassons View, which is a beautiful 8 person cottage. It's cosy, clean, and exceptionally well equipped. The hosts were quick to reply and very helpful. It was a great stay in a beautiful little village.

This cottage was fantastic. Communication was prompt and friendly. The location is picturesque and the interior beautifully warm and cosy. There's plenty of space, with the living room (and fire), dining room and open kitchen with seating leading out into a nice garden. Then bedrooms are upstairs and in the attic. One thing I was especially appreciative of was how well equipped the kitchen was (we cooked quite a bit). There's a great pub just down the road (The Five Alls) which is friendly, and has a nice food area and more pub style bit. The food there was great.

Lovely cottage ideally situated and perfect for our family get together. The local pub was superb and only a few minutes walk. Only managed a few days but would have loved to stay longer, hope to return one day.

“The place is located in a quiet village, which can be easily found via Sat Nav. Checking in and out was fast and easy. Upon arrival we were met with a welcome basket that contained a few local produce which was a great touch. The place was extremely clean and welcoming with all the amenities listed. The main sitting room is very cosy with a wood fire. The place has a modern kitchen with a table chairs which is great to have breakfast round. There is a separate dining room with table and chair which is great for evening meals. The bedrooms upstairs do vary in size however we found them plenty big enough. The bed sheets were clean and I found the bed to be on the firmer side which I prefer (although this is personal preference). Overall a great place to stay.”

A charming cottage full of character, but mind your head! Great facilities and the atmospheric 'Five Alls' pub does some super food as well as traditional beer. Terrific walks in a beautiful part of England. The kids appreciated the toys there and the parents the Lynwood coffee.

My family of 8 recently stayed at this airbnb and had a fantastic stay. The home is quaint and inviting with all the amenities you need and in a quiet but really nice town within the Cotswolds. The hosts were super responsive and easy to communicate with. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!”

This cottage had plenty of history and charm. The bedrooms were clean and spacious with comfortable beds and ample storage space. There was a bathroom on the first floor and a shower room downstairs. My husband and I found this perfectly adequate, but our American visitors felt the need for another bathroom! The kitchen was huge, comparatively new and extremely well equipped. There was also a dining room were we could all eat in comfort. The surrounding area, with washing line and a play area for children was enclosed and safe. Filkins village was charming and the local pub had an excellent chef. We had a great time and used the cottage as a hub for excursions. We highly recommend this property.
