- StayCotswold, 10 August 2022

The cottage was delightful and fully equipped to cover all our needs. The AGA stove was a great addition to the kitchen.The comfort of the beds was the only thing that we found an issue with. The master bed was extremely noisy (creaking every time we moved) and the small double bed downstairs only had a 2 inch memory foam mattress which was not deep enough to protect from the wooden spars on the bed base.Overall the property was delightful.

Thank you Shirley for your review, we are happy you enjoyed your stay at Summer Hayes. We appreciate your comments regarding the beds and will pass this on to the owners. StayCotswold hope to welcome you back again soon.
