We had a great week at Shaven cottage. It's very comfortable, with high quality furnishings. Very conveniently situated to explore the Cotswolds. Had everything we needed for an enjoyable family get-together. (Parking restricted though, we parked across the road most of the time)

Thank you Alison. We are really pleased you had a great week at Shaven Cottage and managed to take advantage of its great location. We hope we can welcome you and your family back to the Cotswolds soon.

We visited shaven cottage with a group of friends for my birthday. The cottage was spotless, modern and had a great outside area. This is the perfect place for large families or groups of friends to rent. Very easy to get to surrounding areas by car. Would definitely recommend!

We are really pleased to hear you had a great weekend away celebrating your birthday and found the cottage to be the perfect place to host your friends.

A fabulous family Christmas, spent in a cosy home , in a beautiful part of the world. Three wood burning stoves, excellent, a must for any Christmas house. It did take a little convincing though, as to how Father Christmas got down the chimney. We were 7 adults and three children under 5 , Shaven cottage worked very well for us . Good size rooms , nicely decorated, plenty of space for all to eat , play or disappear for a quiet moment. The Swan only a short walk away where we had an excellent Christmas Eve lunch.The little local park with the zip wire also proved very popular with the little ones and big ones ! As was the hot tub every morning and evening for 7 days. We had a few minor issues during our stay that were taken on board and very quickly sorted out by Chris and Daniel. Especially after we had left , Chris went beyond the call of duty searching out and retrieving several items, we inevitably left behind. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We definitely would like to go back to Shaven cottage, if they will have us that is. Thank you for helping us to make more,Happy family memories .

Thank you for your superb review Loraine. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome you to the Cotswolds at such a magical time of year and we are so thrilled Shaven Cottage was the perfect fit. We hope to welcome you again soon!
