“Fabulous accomodation and extremely helpful hosts”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had a wonderful long weekend at The Padd which is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. It was walking distance to a great pub on the edge of the village and well situated too for seeing all the lovely villages of the Cotswolds.

“Great Property in a fantastic location!”

We really enjoyed our stay at The Padd. The property is modern with everything you would need for a short self catering holiday and in a great location. The pub at the edge of the village was a delight. The owners were very courteous upon arrival and were available if and when we needed help with anything. We also appreciated the added extras such as fresh bread, milk and proscecco.

Hope we can return one day.

“Sensational Stay”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Nick and Tracey, the Padd's hosts, were simply amazing which was also reflected in the quality of their accomodation during our week long stay in October 2014.
Nick and Tracey were extra helpful in providing for our requests and also assisting with information about local sights and highlights. Their warm, friendly manner made us feel extremely welcome.
The Padd was really comfortable, well equipped and so well presented. A great credit to the hosts. As a base, this was such a wonderful location to travel out to all the local points of interest, the villages and historical parts of the Cotswalds. It was a pleasure to return to the Padd each day to its comfortable amenities.
Located in the picturesque village of Ampney Crucis, the Padd is an idealic, spacious and beautifully renovated cottage which is very inviting.
Thank you Nick and Tracey for a most memorable and enjoyable stay.

“Get away from it all paradise with every need met”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This idyllic modern cottage was equipped with everything you could need for a short or long stay. Nick, the Owner was willing and more than helpful to show how everything worked and nothing was too much trouble. We need a complete break apart from having to manage a Wedding in Cirencester on the Saturday and this was in an idyllic, peaceful setting which was still within ample driving distance of Cirencester and its exciting finds. The perfect setting for anyone with a couple of 10-18 year old 'children' who wanted to learn more about Roman life (in the nearby Cirencester) and for any parent who wanted to give their child some lovely country walks whilst visiting interesting towns and villages. Likewise a perfect stay for a couple who want to get away from the maddening crowds and have a bit of peace and quiet whilst having all mod 'cons' around them. We have recharged our batteries and would recommend this property which is in first class condition to anyone who wants a break. Thank you, we will be back.

“Peaceful Perfection in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

The Padd is absolutely beautiful, furnished with everything one could possibly need. Comfy beds with fluffy duvets & crisp white bedding. Plenty of closet space and simply gorgeous bathrooms. A truly wonderful place from which to explore all the beauty of the Cotswolds. Close to the historical town of Cirencester for markets and pubs, not to mention the lovely villages all within a short drive from the peaceful village of Ampney Crucis. Nick and Tracey thoughtfully provide a brochure in the Padd with advice on what to see and do in the area and are more than happy to assist with anything you may need. We would love to come back for another stay in the Padd.
