We loved our stay in little Tupenny Cottage, and our dog enjoyed herself too. Arriving in the lambing season, we had the privilege of helping to feed the orphaned lambs which were being kept in a small pen opposite the front door; and just a few yards away were the chickens which provided us with lovely eggs during our week. Alison and Anthony were very welcoming and were more than happy to tell us all about the workings of the farm. We even had a couple of Land Rover "safaris" around the fields to check their many sheep and lambs. Luckily for us, the River Thames was shallow enough to drive through! Apparently, during the summer you can walk across it and a field to the pub in the nearby village. We found the accommodation perfect for two (and a dog!), although there is also a single bed. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we entered, and the bed linen was luxurious. The lane to Old Mill Cottages is on a crossroads, but the three intersecting lanes are designated "quiet" lanes where people can walk rather than drive. Apart from the occasional gateway or small passing place, they are single track, and I for one was very pleased to find there wasn't much traffic. We found Tupenny Cottage was a great base from which to explore the area and would visit again. One quirky event was a tapping noise on one of the windows which turned out to be a pied wagtail trying to eat the flowers in the vase on the sill inside!!
Very peaceful and relaxing with friendly and helpful owner. We know the area so easy to get around the Cotswolds and enjoy walks down the Thames path, local pubs and Cirencester.
We found Tupenny Cottage to be very comfortable and contained everything we needed for our week's stay. Alison and Anthony were friendly and chatty and their farm is in the most peaceful of locations. The river Thames runs through the farm and access to the Thames path is very easy. The three other holiday properties on the farm all looked very welcoming and comfy.
