    “A beautiful Cotswold cottage, stylishly presented and well equipped with everything you might need for a comfortable stay.”

    The kitchen and dining area, leading out through patio doors to a beautiful sunny garden, was particularly appreciated. The only niggle was the lack of Wi-Fi (despite seeming to be connected) which even by Cotswold standards was poor, and made last minute wedding preparations difficult!
