We had a very nice and relaxing stay in Shaven Cottage which was beautiful and also wonderfully clean and warm and cosy. Driveway is a little bit tight but fine once you're in! Good location and close to a super pub. Thanks for all help and assistance.

Thank you for the superb review Philip. We hope to see you again at Shaven Cottage sometime soon!

We have just had the most wonderful stay at Shaven Cottage for my 60th! This cottage is awesome. Every room is decorated to the highest standard. It felt like we were in a brand new place. It has everything you need and the garden with the hot tub and fire pit were just the icing on the cake. There are some lovely pubs within walking distance and some beautiful villages a short drive away such as Bourton on the Water. I have stayed in numerous houses/cottages over the years and this one is by far the best! We will definitely return. Thank you!

Thank you for your wonderful review Alison. We're delighted to hear that you had the BEST stay at Shaven Cottage and enjoyed your 60th birthday celebrations. We hope to see you again sometime soon!
