    “The cottage is beautiful.”

    It completely overwhelmed us when we went inside. It was exactly like the pictures. The owners Ken and Gill have equipped it to a very high standard. It was our home for a week. They have thought of everything. I would recommend this cottage and the village which is a great base to see various places in the area. A must when you arrive is the straw kitchen by whichford pottery plus the Norman Knight for food. We went to Broadway and walked to the tower, we visited Oxford, we walked to long Compton and had a meal st the red lion. We went to Bourton on the water and Stow on the Wold, we saw lovely local villages like Burford and a town Banbury. All in all it was an amazing relaxing holiday and would definitely come back to this cottage if we could.

    Ken and Gill would love to welcome you back in the future. We are pleased to hear you were able to visit so much of the Cotswolds during your amazing holiday, Many Thanks Manor Cottages Owner relations
