The cottage was a very nice dog friendly property within an ideal location for visiting the Cotswold and surrounding areas. The owners were very friendly and accommodating providing us with lovely fresh farm produce. The garden was enclosed providing a perfect location for the dogs. The BBQ came in very useful for the first day which proved to be the hottest on record. Parking was available right by the front door for ease of access with luggage. Excellent wifi available if required. All in all a most relaxing holiday and well recommended to anyone. We will certainly be returning at the next most suitable opportunity.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that Guinea Cottage could offer everything you needed for a relaxing holiday and we hope one day to welcome you back.
