“Beautiful cottage set in stunning location”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Brambles is a beautiful, comfortable, well furnished, one-level cottage (it has a fantastic shower) with panoramic views over fields and woods. During our visit we were lucky enough to witness deer, foxes and pheasants in the garden. The property feels so rural yet it is within easy reach of day trips out to places like Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace, Oxford and Stratford-on-Avon. Carol was extremely friendly and helpful and the welcome pack was excellent. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this rental.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Words and photos can not convey how absolutely stunning this rental is. The owners have got the art of helpfulness v privacy down to a fine art.
The village location is wonderful. Close enough to surrounding days out, yet you feel in the middle of tranquility.
The barn itself is finished off to a high standard and all the little extra touches made it a pampered home from home.
The shower was the best shower I have ever used!
I can honestly say we didn't want to leave.

It really would be difficult to find self-catering accommodation that can out-class Brambles. The place is superb in every way.
We have stayed in around 100 cottages, apartments, converstions, over the years and can honestly say this ranks up there with the best of them.
Comfortable, warm, homely and with an owner who knows what holidaymakers want - and provies it!

“Superb bespoke accommodation”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What can I say if you are looking for a peaceful break in a luxury barn then Brambles is the place for you. Tranquil surroundings and delightful family to rent from. All the little touches -like the welcome pack and the homemade bread all waiting for our arrival made it all the more special. Immaculate premises, clean and thoroughly modern. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Well worth five stars!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

What a lovely stay we had at Brambles. Acommodation is perfect, Carol met us and we found a lovely welcome pack and when we left we had forgotten a DVD which was sent to our house. Thank you and we'll be back!
