We stayed for four nights to celebrate my son's wedding. The cottage is perfectly located in Fulbrook, within walking distance of the church and the Carpenter's Arms. The cottage was immaculately clean with attention to every detail so truly a home from home. There is a garden with loungers, seating and a bbq. Our stay was during the heatwave of July and there was a water challenge impacting all of Burford so there was no running water. On our return from the wedding reception we were delighted to see that our lovely hosts had left us 6x 2L bottles of water. It is with great pleasure and without hesitation that i would recommend The Reading Room to others and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Sheri, thank you for such a great review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay and had such fabulous weather for your sons wedding. We would be delighted to welcome you back to The Reading Room.

Good location for exploring and discovering the Cotswolds. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had a lovely secluded garden. The only downside comment we would like to make is that older people or people with disabilities might find it a bit of a struggle to climb into the high sided bath!

Thankyou Alan. We hope we can welcome you back to the Cotswolds soon.

The cottage was perfect, but we found the hot water was extremely hot verging on boiling. The bath taps were very stiff.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you found The Reading Room perfect for your stay and hope you will come back to visit soon.
