“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 18 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Apart from the bright, modern and clean accommodation, this is a wonderful area for nature lovers with the added bonus of the beautiful Cotswolds villages on the doorstep. It is spacious and at this time of year it was peaceful, a 'real away from it all' for couples, and a 'Rest' it is with caring owners who help make the most of your break.

Wow, this accommodation is beautiful. The property is really clean and very modern. The owners have thought of everything to make ones stay really comfortable. The king size bed is also really comfortable too. We had a great night sleep. The area is very quiet. One of the best properties we have stayed in. Thank you Janet and Pete.

“Absolutely charming cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cottage is immaculate and very well appointed, good attention to detail and very welcoming. This met all our expectations and more for a lovely Cotswolds weekend. Wonderful area with so much to see and explore.

“Amazing, peaceful and cosy”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spent last Christmas at Hobby's. It was warm and neat, very clean but cosy for two. The bed and other furniture was very comfortable (I have a bad back). Everything you need was provided in this well planned, awesome little spot in the Cotswolds. Although it is set in a large secured area in Somerford Keynes you can choose to enjoy the peaceful tranquillity and sit out or go for beautiful walks but, there is also an on site restaurant (didn't get great service there) and well stocked shop. There are also a few pubs within a short drive that do good meals.

Thank you so much for sharing your enjoyable experience at Hobby's Rest. We're so pleased that you found the cottage to be "amazing, peaceful and cosy" for your winter break.
We look forward to welcoming you both again soon. (We are sure you will love the extended living space - planned for 2017 - with full height/length windows to maximise the beautiful orchard views!)
