Benson Cottage proved an ideal place for a reunion with friends. The house was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The only thing missing was instruction on what could be recycled . As it varies so much across the country we took ours home rather than use the recycling containers.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are happy to hear that Benson Cottage was an ideal place for your reunion and thank you for your feedback regarding the recycling. We hope to welcome you back with StayCotswold in the future.

We have had a wonderful 2 week break at Benson Cottage. Lovely modern house with spacious double bedrooms all with en-suites which is a bonus. Kitchen well equipped, although not much cooking was done. Unfortunately the local pub suffered a fire earlier in the year so we had to venture further out for meals. Would recommend The Howard Arms at Ilmington. Our first week was during a heatwave and a patio umbrella would have been most welcome. Lovely base for touring the Cotswold.

Thank you for the lovely review, Frances. We're delighted to hear that you had a great stay at Benson Cottage and found the location to be an excellent base for exploring the Cotswolds. We hope to see you again soon!

Priding itself on being the heart and soul of the neighbouring village Ebrington, The Ebrington Arms is only a 25 walk away and comes highly recommended! They have an extensive wine list and serve some of the finest, fresh, and seasonal produce.
