A great little 'nest' to retreat to at the end of the day. Very clean and tidy. Ideal location for touring the Cotswolds. Very cosy. The bed is memory foam and although it's very comfy it's not ideal for those who get very hot at night. Extremely well equipped overall, everything we needed was there. Only drawback is that the sofa is not very comfy. Property has low ceilings as you are in the roof space which can provide a height issue, but we found it very quirky. Directions and instructions given were excellent and accurate. Overall we had a fantastic stay, and will be returning.

Thank you Nathan for your lovely review of The Nest at Robins Roost. We are delighted you found the cottage to be very clean, well equipped and in an ideal location. We look forward to you staying again soon!

We had a lovely couple of nights at The Nest, a perfect name for this cosy little conversion for two. Nicely presented and welcoming hosts, the freshly laid eggs from the bantam hens were delicious. I would have happily extended the stay. It got a bit toasty (but we were in a heatwave) and the atelier attic-style sloping roof might not be great for the giants amongst us. As another reviewer mentioned, the sofa is extraordinarily uncomfortable (but didn't notice it so much after a bottle of wine ) and a mirror in the bedroom would be helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Thank you for the lovely review and recommendation, Sarah. We’re delighted to hear that you enjoyed staying at The Nest and found the property and hosts to be welcoming. Thanks also for your suggestion which we have shared with the owners. They have ordered a mirror for the bathroom and are planning on doing something about the sofa soon. We hope to see you again sometime!

The location is fantastic and bed is super comfy. The parking is incredibly difficult to get out of and we damaged our car in the dark as they're are no lights and not enough room to turn with the owners cars parked too. The kitchen had a dishwasher which was a nice touch. The sofa was quite uncomfortable so we just sat at the table or in the bedroom. The bath was lovely but you bump your head against the wall if you use the shower. I would stay in another property by StayCotswold but not the nest as I don't want to damage my car or bump my head again!

We’re pleased that overall, you had a great stay at The Nest and found the location to be excellent and the bed super comfy. We are however sorry to hear about your car Rachel! Previous guests haven't raised any concern about the parking, however we have shared your suggestion of some lighting for the parking area with the owners. As per the pre-arrival document, there is an allocated parking space for one car on the shared driveway and if required, further free parking is available in the village. Thank you for your review and we hope that you will be back to visit the Cotswolds again soon!
