Lovely cottage.very restful. Everything provided. Needed nothing. Would recommend to anyone. It would be very cosy at Christmas with a lovely log fire. Could not ask for more.

Thank you for your wonderful review of Star Cottage. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

The cottage was nicely presented and comfortable with everything provided for our stay. However, the front garden now looks nothing like the picture, with large conifers and overgrown bushes close to the house. This makes the dining room extremely dark with the lounge not much better, which was a real shame; we quite often take my elderly mum with us but she has very little vision and would have really struggled, even with the lights on. The bedrooms had a lovely light and were extremely well presented, with very comfortable beds, if maybe a few too many cushions! The rear garden is also overgrown and so we didn’t use the outside space as it felt so claustrophobic. However, it was extremely quiet in the village with some lovely areas to walk the dog. It is also in a good location to explore the Cotswolds and a bit too convenient to visit Daylesford Organic food shop!

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Dawn. It’s great to hear that you found Star Cottage to be nicely presented with everything you needed for a comfortable stay. A gardener is appointed to attend every 4-6 weeks. As the gardener needs access via the cottage, this can be difficult to schedule with back to back bookings, however I can confirm that the gardener is due this weekend to ensure the garden is looking it’s best. We’re pleased you found the location to be excellent and enjoyed the nearby farm shop, Daylesford.

The cottage had everything we could wish for in helping to make our stay comfortable. From the squishy cushions on the sofa, the fabulously beautiful decor, the scented diffusers, the super-comfy beds, the well-equipped kitchen (including a coffee-machine), a lovely little garden - and of course there’s so much to do in the area (including the pub just a 2 minute walk down the road)! Just a perfect base!

Thank you Denise. We are glad you found Star Cottage comfortable, beautiful and well equipped. We hope we can welcome you back to the Cotswolds soon.

Why not blow away the cobwebs with an 8 mile walk from the village to the Rollright Stones, an impressive prehistoric stone circle on the Cotswold escarpment. After a day walking in the countryside, you can enjoy a well deserved dinner at The Red Lion!
