    This could be a lovely property but really lets itself down on cleanliness. We have never seen so many cobwebs in one property! We moved the sofa to get a better angle to look at the TV and it was evident that the sofa had not been moved in a long time - sweet wrappers, thick dust etc. The shower curtain had black mould on it and there were several hairs in the bath. The main positives for us were the size and location of the property.

    We very much enjoyed this cottage. The weather was glorious, the surrounding countryside was pleasant and it was an environment where we could chill together as a family. The tennis court and swimming pool were welcomed additions to our stay.

    This could be such a great cottage but it needs a really good clean and updating. Disappointing!

    We had a very pleasant time at Martingale Cottage. The house is well equipped and cosy. Moreover, it is ideally situated to visit Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds, Bath, Winchester, Stonehenge and London. The water-mill theatre (Oliver!) nearby was an extremely nice surprise. We recommend : Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances.
