We stayed at The Guggle for two nights to break up our journey to Polperro in Cornwall. The Guggle is the most amazing, characterful cottage we have ever stayed in. The bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, with lovely little touches. The kind owner had even left us milk and Prosecco in the fridge which was a lovely surprise after a fairly long drive. There is a small garden with a table and chairs, and it's fully enclosed so the dog could run around to stretch his legs. Watch your heads if anyone in your family is taller than average, though, as there are several low exposed beams... all part of the Guggle's charm. You will be amazed at the funny little Guggle room, too.
The Guggle is located on a very old street in the beautiful little Cotswolds village of Northleach.
Stayed here in March for a long weekend and had an absolutely fabulous time. Four good sized bedrooms with three bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen (tried my hardest to find something missing) cosy log burner in an enormous inglenook low beams in the lounge so watch your head if you're over 6ft 3"!
We loved it and have already booked for next year.
Beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Decorated to a good standard and comfortable. Also in a good location to visit the other areas in the Cotswolds. It didn't have off road parking, but we had 3 cars between us and never struggled to park right outside.
A few reasons for not giving 5 stars are, the kitchen table was far too big. We understood that they were trying to cater for the amount of people that can stay at the cottage, but it just took up too much room and made it difficult to get around the kitchen. Secondly, we had to boil water on the hob for tea/coffee. It might sound minor, but when there are so many people and kids involved, it's much quicker and easier to boil a kettle. Finally, as lovely as it was, the fireplace was very dangerous when you've little ones.
Despite these things we would recommend this place.
Just home from a fabulous long weekend in the Guggle. Fantastic cottage , everything we needed for our girlie retreat !! Lots of walking , eating , drinking and laughing ... Weather was also first class so all in all a great time had by all .
We were 2 couples, our respective son and daughter and their two children (3 and 4 months). This cottage was perfect for our needs with the younger family on the middle floor and the older couples on the ground and top floor. Lovely kitchen and lounge with the star attraction being the fire. The 3 year old loved it although understood that she was not allowed too near it! The narrow winding stairs could have been an issue but again the 3 year old loved them and was very careful.
Nice village with all you need including the "Wheatsheaf" 200 yards away. We went to Bourton on the Water and the Daylesford for lunch.
Since we wanted to spend time together we didn't want to cook so thought about a takeaway then Emma told us about Bex who will cater for you. Well the two meals we had from her were excellent and very reasonable so don't even think about a takeaway! Her winter salad was so exceptional that I asked her for the recipe.
All in all a lovely birthday weekend.
