Really enjoyed our stay here. Directions need updating when you get to the farm, but found it eventually. Hut is cosy and bed really comfy. Spacious. Good shower. Good views and location for exploring. Smart TV didn't connect due to internet I think.

This was a perfect place to stay! Aurora was perfectly spacious and extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The outside space was a real bonus with the BBQ, fire pit and loungers etc. with easy access to the Thames path and a local pub! We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend Aurora as a great place to stay as you will not be disappointed,

I booked Aurora because we had one couple too many for my birthday celebrations at Folly View. The shepherds hut is absolutely gorgeous. So cosy and beautifully fitted out. It has a little log burner, shower and verandah with wonderful views. The couple who staying in it LOVED it. My friend said it was the best nights sleep ever, the shower and all facilities worked really well and they were very happy. It would be a fab place to stay as a couple as it feels very private to the other properties on the farm but is also a great option if you are large group with a couple who might like their own space or an early night! StayCotswold were fantastic to deal with and so helpful and professional
