This was excellent in every respect except it was difficult to find. We recommend that the owners put a bigger sign at the roadside which I think would solve the problem. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others

Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay and we really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback about signage. We look forward to welcoming you to the Cotswolds again soon!

We have just returned from a stay at The Reading Room and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We received a warm welcome on arrival and the cottage was beautifully presented with everything you could need for a short break away. It was spotlessly clean and had some very thoughtful touches too. Ideally located to explore Burford and surrounding villages, it was within easy reach of the best visitor attractions in the Cotswolds too. The cottage was calm, quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to unwind. Thank you, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

Thank you Victoria for such a lovely review. We are thrilled you had such a great stay at The Reading Room and look forward to welcoming you back.

Once again we found the Reading room an excellent place to stay. Its location allowed us to get to several places of interest in the area - the villages, Blenheim Palace and Diddly Squat (which lives up to its name by the way!)The Property itself is furnished beautifully and very clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed comfortable. Off road private parking is right by the property and the friendly owners live opposite.Booking through Stay Cotswold was straightforward. We would stay here again.

Thank you for your glowing review of The Reading Room Mark, we can agree that it is a beautiful property, and we are glad you got to explore all of the lovely surroundings. We hope to welcome you back soon!
