“Excellent Holiday in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My Wife, 92 Year old Father in Law & I stayed at Oak House from the 6th-11th June. Cheryl & Robert were excellent hosts & provided very helpful information on the surrounding area. The House itself is ideal for up to 4 adults with excellent cooking & dining facilities.The is a large garden overlooking fields containing friendly Horses. The Cotswold Villages surround the area including Stow On The Wold & Bourton on the Water are in the immediate vicinity of Oak House & are well worth a visit. Dining opportunities abound in the area while Oak House itself is also set up for those who prefer Self catering. We visited Oxford, Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham Racecourse as well as a host of picturesque Old Worldly Villages. We had a great Holiday/Vacation in the Area & I would highly recommend Oak House to anyone visiting the Cotswold Area.

“Tastefully furnished house with lovely views”

Lower Swell is an excellent base for touring the Cotswolds. The house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with beautiful views over rolling countryside. The garden is large with the patio positioned to catch the afternoon and evening sun.

The house was well equipped and had everything we needed. The owners, living next door, were handily placed if we needed anything, but as it happened there were no problems. The provision of tea/coffee and a welcome cake was a thoughtful touch.

We intend to return and would be more than happy to rent Oak House again

“Faultless accommodation with personal touches”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We recently stayed in Kilderkin Cottage in Langton Matravers for a five-day holiday - a pretty Purbeck stone house tucked in a quiet lane in an equally attractive, quiet village located close to the many local Dorset amenities. The accommodation was faultless and furnished impeccably by the owners. In each of the rooms attention had been paid to comfort as well as detail and personal touches were evident in all the rooms. We would certainly recommend Kilderkin Cottage to others and we would certainly like to return.

“Ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Oak House is a wonderful, modern cottage with all the amenities you could ask for. Everything is provided, from the practical (shampoos, soaps, coffee/tea, etc) to the personal (a welcome card from the owners, flowers, and cake).

We traveled with a six year-old, and the house offered plenty to keep him busy: a large garden in the back to play football, badminton, or croquet (sets provided) and inside a whole collection of books, toys, DVDs, and Playstation games. The garden is wonderful - a perfect, quiet spot to enjoy views over the countryside. The horses in the field behind the house made for wonderful neighbours.

Speaking of neighbours, the owners live right next door and are very welcoming and friendly, and pleased to help with any information about the area or attractions to visit.

Wonderful hosts, wonderful house, wonderful location! Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for your complimentary review. It is good to see children making the most of the outdoor space. Our central position makes it easy to explore a wide area and we are glad that you seemed to find plenty to do in the two weeks you were with us. We would love to see you again on your next visit to the UK. Robert & Cheryl

“Lovely cottage”

This cottage really stood up to the description. Good location, very convenient for Stow on the Wold and very peaceful.
It was very clean with all the extras . Also what was really good was that you didn't have to worry about washing up liquid/kitchen towel clingilm/shanpoo/showergel etc as it was all provided.
I think this illustrates the generosity of the owners - who were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive, would definitely book this one again.
