    Beautiful relaxing country retreat

    This was the perfect getaway for the Easter holidays with the kids. The kids (3 and 5) enjoyed the well kept lawn for garden games and the patio dining area was fantastic when we had friends to visit for dinner. The home has a beautiful country charm. The kitchen although small was so well stocked with cupboard space and cooking utensils, just what we needed when cooking for friends. The house is well positioned for bike rides along the canal tow path. We had a wonderful time.

    Lovely period home convenient to Salisbury, Bath, and Stonehenge

    This is a lovely, excellently maintained and cared-for old coaching house. It is comfortable, spacious, and charmingly decorated. Very convenient for visiting local historical sites or for tramping through the scenic countryside.

    I was extremely satisfied with my stay!

    I was completely blown away when I walked through the doors and saw a beautifully updated cottage from 1700. It was charming yet very spacious. We made many day trips and the cottage was a perfect central location to them all. It was so nice to end the great day at our cozy home with multiple wood burning stoves, and wake up in this great homey space. Edward is a wonderful host!

    Beautiful, cosy and very welcoming...

    We spent Christmas 2017 at this very tastefully furnished cottage. Thanks to the owners for putting up a. Christmas Tree and other decorations - it was so thoughtful! Perfect for the dogs and plenty of walks from the cottage too. I can thoroughly recommend it as a getaway place.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A beautiful house, very tastefully decorated. The gardens are just as beautiful!

    We had a great stay at Greenheys. Four friends and I wanted a weekend retreat away to someone quaint and with good local walks - this suited us perfectly! We found a lovely pub down the road and had a refreshing walk along the canal. The house is wonderful, old and beautifully decorated. The gardens are very pretty too!

    Very nice break

    We had a very nice break at Edward’s cottage. He has been very helpful and kind and the house was just a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Cotswolds. Can only recommend!
