“Elegant retreat to relax and slow down on honeymoon”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband selected this place for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. Ros is s superb hostess wiling to share her local knowledge of the area and ensure your stay is all that you want it to be. The cottage has been carefully renovated and is perfect. The village is quiet and friendly and with so many places to visit you will want to return. We certainly shall. The Wi-Fi is stable so for the workaholics among you can keep in touch with the office while away. We celebrated a beautiful honeymoon here ready to face what the world has for us back in Sittingbourne.

“Lovely cosy cottage”
Reviewed 4 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Ros was extremely helpful in sorting out our booking for a rather last minute getaway for my husband's 30th birthday. The cottage was really clean and beautifully decorated with all that you could need for a comfortable stay.

Our 8 month old was happy crawling around and the log fire was perfect for a cosy evening in. Lots of great places to visit nearby and Woodstock had some lovely cafes and pubs. We would definitely come again and were only sorry we didnt get to meet Ros this time.

Thank you for a perfect first break away as a little family Ros!

“Beautiful cottage - perfect honeymoon haven”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in this tasteful, comfortable and stylishly appointed cottage for a brief three night honeymoon and it was everything we could have wanted. After the whirlwind of a wedding, we so appreciated the peace and quiet of the setting as well as the beautiful view from the front of the cottage over the owner's garden and out to the fields beyond. The cottage itself has been beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and equipped, and the owner has clearly put a lot of thought into getting every detail exactly right, and providing everything her guests might possibly want. She herself is warm and welcoming, without being at all intrusive.

All I'd say, as other reviewers have, is do get proper directions. If we hadn't come by in the morning to drop off our cases, armed with directions from a friend living nearby, we would never have found the property late at night, in the dark

Otherwise, I'd wholeheartedly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful Cotswold escape.

“A simply perfect haven in an ideal location for The Cotswold”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ros was just wonderful! Access was a breeze! The cottage was everything we had been promised and more. It's set in the very quiet village of Stonesfield, classically Cotswold. The view from our patio was beautiful, watching the sun set in the evening was lovely. Inside the cottage was stylishly furnished giving a warm welcoming feel. The Old Bakehouse is extremely well appointed, we wanted for nothing. My friend and I only wished we had booked for longer. We simply loved it!!!! Thanks so much Ros.

“Comfortable Accommodation and Great Location”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Thank you Ros. We enjoyed our stay and the really nice thing about the accommodation is that it worked, you could live there. It's been well thought through with many nice touches. Well situated and off road parking.
