    Just come back from a week at Moorhens with our 3 year old and chocolate lab. The cottage is lovely. Really clean and has everything you need. There were great safety options for the 3 year old. Also lots of lovely extra touches like the Processco in the fridge and great DVD selection. Lots of things to do at Cotswolds Water Park and also lots to do within a short car journey. We would definitely come back!

    Lovely setting but amenities were ok if you wanted to bike or boat. As a fly fisherman I was very disappointed that there was no bank to fish from , the back cast was not accounted for even if it were possible to get to the water. A working shop would have been good because of convenience, we had to drive offsite when we would have preferred no to. That said we were late season and enjoyed the walking immensely. KT

    Lovely time staying at Moorhens. It was perfect for a base as exploring the walks the Cotswolds have to offer. Really clean and comfortable, with spacious living and dining room. Even with six adults it didn't feel cramped!

    Lovely cottage. We very much enjoyed our stay here! In a very convenient location to explore from. Loved the children's play area (well, my son did!!), and the fact that there are lovely walks that you can do straight from your door. Cottage was cosy and clean, the kitchen was well stocked (if a tiny bit lacking in storage space for food items), and the bottle of bubbly on arrival was a nice touch - thank you! The only small negative point is that the bed was super squeaky! This certainly isn't a deal breaker, but I thought it was worth mentioning in case no one else had - it did wake us up a few times but we could live with it! All in all a cracking place to stay.

    Lovely cottage on a beautiful estate. I would personally have liked a property with a little more outside privacy; however this didnt spoil a fabulous week away.

    This was an excellent rental home, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was prepared for us with lights on, temp control and a complimentary bottle of prosecco in the fridge. Could not ask for me. Such a comfortable and relaxing stay. We would definitely return to Moorhens cottage and the Cotswold Water Park.

    We loved the location and on site facilities. The owner organised a very prompt repair when needed. We had never stayed in a cottage before and whilst there was absolutely nothing wrong, for us as a family of 5 we felt a little cramped.

    Had a fantastic time, the cottage was perfect for us and the little extras like tea/coffee and the bottle of wine in the fridge made us feel welcomed. The wrap around deck was nice but the weather in March didn't allow us to use it, and I suspect the mosquitos that abound on the complex might be a bigger issue in the summer!!
