We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found a welcome basket with fruit, cookies, cereal, and bread, and eggs, cheese, and milk in the refrigerator. This was a very thoughtful gesture that we greatly appreciated. We enjoyed coming home to our cottage after a day of sightseeing and being able to cook dinner and watch a movie, read a book, or play a game together. The cottage had a wonderful selection of entertainment! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped.
We didn't realize that the "bathroom" did not have a stand up shower - just a bathtub with a handheld shower. Also, the telephone was coin-operated and only worked for calls within England; no international calls.
We absolutely loved driving to our property and seeing the fields of yellow flowers and the adorable sheep and baby lambs grazing in the green grass. The area was very peaceful and quiet and we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birds singing. Our favorite nearby town was Bourton-on-the-Water, absolutely delightful!
Nearby Events or Locales:
The cottage is located in the town of Windrush, which consists of only a church and houses. Burford was the nearest larger town with shops, but it was not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
A mobile phone would be helpful.
We did not have any trouble finding the property.
Check In Out:
We were supposed to call our keyholder prior to our arrival but we did not have a mobile phone. However the next door neighbor was home and generously called the keyholder when we arrived. She told us where to find the key and everything was fine. The keyholder did not meet us at the time of check-out either, so we left the key where we found it. Everything was fine though.
