Thank you Flo and Dave for a great week. The house was very comfortable, very clean and very lovingly furnished. Our boys had a great time in the pool and loved the fast internet that was available throughout the house. Flo and Dave were very friendly and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. They even learned some German words ;-)

We are delighted that you had a great week at The Pool House and that your boys enjoyed the lovely pool! Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we hope to welcome you back to the Cotswold's again in the future.

We had an outstanding stay here . The pool was lovely and seen with kid friendly toys, The place immaculate, they was such a lovely warm welcome reception with milk and bread and fizz. Functionally the equipment was all brand new and working perfectly. There was a lovely sunny spot outside to sit in peace. The beds are lovely and comfortable with high quality sheets and pillows the rooms are sparkling clean spacious and well designed. Flo and Dave were our tentative hosts who were warm friendly kind and cared about our well-being. We can’t thank you all enough and look forward to returning. Great activities to do nearby, parks , villages and food with excellent recommendations from our hosts. Perfect!
