    “Just a few comments to make.”


    The tin openers in each barn are impossible to use! Maybe better to have the cheapest chrome single winder standard opener which invariably opens the tin! Lack of medium-sized bowls to make & mix porridge for breakfast from the microwave. In Hazelnut barn there was a problem with flies in the bedroom without en-suite facilities. There seemed to be some attraction to the top corner of the window. On arrival, we parted the beds in this room for comfort of sleeping & there were sweetie wrappers & flies under the bed. In the en-suite showers the grouting needs attention. When the jacuzzi bath in Hazelnut was filled with water & the jets activated, the bath filled with black slimy particles released from the jets which stopped us using the bath. For the duration of our stay we all bought bottled water to drink as the tap water was unpalatable. Having said all this, the overall standard was acceptable & we had a lovely time. So much so that we have re-booked for next September! Thank you. Nicola.

The property

The Grove at Notgrove is a wonderfully secluded holiday location, offering individually styled self catering accommodation in three inter-connecting properties - a unique set up in one of (if not THE) most beautiful locations within the Cotswolds.

Situated within a 1500 acres country estate, these contemporary 'holiday cottages' are the very essense of what we think a large group should want.

Ample space for getting together, oodles of things to do such as hire mountain bikes, walk for miles and miles or get a beautician in, alternatively do absolutely nothing except watch the TV, get a local chef and completely relax.

Contructed within an ecologically sound framework using local craftsmen with local materials along with modern technologies such as thermal panels this is not only very attractive it is environmentally - very 'friendly'.

The Notgrove Estate really have got it right and we're confident you'll agree.

Big sofas, big beds, big TVs, big tables - you've got to hand it to Notgrove, this is absolutely top drawer.

22 people are sure to leave happy and recharged!There is a comprehensive range of additional services, from food prepared ready for your arrival, to cycle and tennis court hire.

About the location


Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
