Pros The location is perfect. The cottage is on a very quiet, tranquil and pretty country lane with very little passing traffic. The garden is very private and a good size with a view of the local church to the rear of the property. Moreton on the Marsh village is only 5 minutes drive away which has lovely shops and restaurants - recommend the White Hart. There are nearby villages with some very good cafes / restaurants. Can highly recommend Blockley Cafe. Cons Whilst the property has a driveway it is only for unloading/loading?? Not sure why the driveway cannot be used to park on. This means that guests park their vehicles on the country lane adjacent to the property which is very quiet. Lounge and main bedroom furniture could do with updating, very shabby chic. Some sockets behind the tv in the lounge did not work and the problem had been solved by the owners with the use of 2 extension leads trailing across the floor in to the study area. TV too small Patio area is very nice but there was a paving stone missing along the edge. We would recommend this property to others as a quirky, quaint and quintessential Cotswolds cottage which would benefit from updating some of the furniture to make it less shabby and more chic.

Thank you, Mandy, for recommending Norman Chapel and its tranquil location to others. We appreciate you taking the time to give feedback; the owner is addressing the issues with the sockets and paving stone for the benefit of future guests. The furniture (which is mix of antique and new) and the television are shown in the photographs. The parking is ‘on street’ however it is as close to the property as the driveway and as observed, there is very little passing traffic. We are so pleased you found the location perfect for your stay and enjoyed the nearby shops, cafes and restaurants.

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.
Why not head to the Cotswold Falconry Centre for a fun-filled family day out! There are three different flying demonstrations daily, and with falcons, eagles, hawks and owls to name but a few of the species on site, there are plenty of birds to admire between the flying displays.
