Fantastic stay for my uncle’s 70th birthday - idyllic cottage in perfect location. We loved the outdoor space for al fresco dining and garden games, and felt very relaxed in the space. All of the rooms and living room were very comfortable, and the cottage was well equipped with books and games and extra little touches but it would have been good to have a few glasses etc. in the event of having all six guests. We also struggled to get any hot water despite the instructions provided so had a couple of cold showers and cold water for washing up. Given the cottage was very expensive, it would also have been nice to have a welcome pack with some food bits and recommendations for the area. There was a distinct lack of instructions and recommendations in the cottage. Overall we had a great time, just a couple of constructive comments.

We’re pleased you had a fantastic stay at 2 Orchard Cottages and appreciated the special touches throughout – Happy 70th birthday to your uncle! I’m sorry that you experienced an issue with the hot water and will make the property manager aware so that they can review this and the instructions right away. For anything like this, it’s always best to contact the property manager at the time of a stay as they are on hand to help so that guests will have the most comfortable and enjoyable stay. We’ll also share your constructive comments, which are greatly appreciated. Overall we’re pleased you had a lovely stay and hope to see you again.

Lovely cottage with everything needed for a comfortable stay all prepared in the cottage (eg cooking utensils, sheets, towels etc). Great decors throughout and particularly enjoyed the cozy living room with open fire. Christmas tree was a really nice touch during the festive season. View from the master bedroom was fantastic waking up to. Secluded location off the main street so very quiet. Very close to Daylesford farm or the nearest high street supermarket is less than 10min drive away. Great base to explore the rest of the Cotswold. Only recommendation would be to update the bathroom or else would definitely stay again!

Thank you for your lovely review Ray. We will certainly pass along your kind words and feedback to the owners and hope to welcome you and your guests to the Cotswolds again very soon!

You can arrive and depart on any day you like, for 2 nights or more, however if you select Monday and/or Friday as your changeover days, you will achieve the optimum price.
The Chequers comes highly recommended by top food critics and locals alike, and being only 500 yards away, it's the perfect choice for a special occasion. Make sure you try a pint of the locally brewed Hooky, or perhaps one of their refreshing cocktails!
