    This cottage is in a lovely village location directly opposite the village shop/P.O., and a great base for seeing many of the attractions of the Cotswolds. The cottage itself is small but quaint and had just about everything that we needed for our week long stay. There is also a lovely little paved front garden. It would have been nice had there been internet connection. We stayed there as a couple and it was just about right for our needs. The stairs are a little precarious, so if you have mobility issues you would need to be very careful, and the bathroom is downstairs. The details state that the cottage sleeps 5, but in all honesty I think that is optimistic. There is one double bedroom, fine for a couple, but the second bedroom is a very small box room, with a bunkbed and one single bed squeezed in next to it, but with absolutely no room for anything else, including storage. A couple with two small children would probably be the limit; two couples sharing would struggle to say the least. The cleanliness was adequate and Jenny the housekeeper was very friendly and helpful.

    Orchard Cottage is a wonderful old style cottage. It is small but perfect. It had everything we needed for a home away from home holiday. Great location. Lovely village.

    While the cottage is in a lovely village we found the bathroom not very well placed having to go through the kitchen and the stairs are dangerous. The second bedroom is very small and only suitable for small children. Lounge and dining area very nice and the cottage is well appointed.

    The good points 1) location is great, shop & good pubs nearby to eat and drink 2) downstairs living room with comfortable seating 3) good bed The bad points 1) shower screen incorrectly fitted to bath so that there is a gap at the bottom resulting in water all over floor after use 2) black mould present in grout around toilet 3) food left in freezer & 4) lack of wardrobe shelf space & others clothes left there. The bad points are a pity as they are (and should be) easily fixed.

    A wonderful cottage, in a great location. Contact with the key holder was easy and helpful. The only reason we haven't been able to award 10's across the board, was one small issue (which ended up being a week long niggle) We searched for a cottage suitable for 3 adults. My mother is only little, but found the second bedroom unsuitable for an adult. This room is only really suitable for children. It made dressing and moving around a chore. Let's be clear, it was a niggle at most. One I'm. sure can be easily rectified for the future

    I really enjoyed my stay in this cottage. It's cosy, bijou, authentic and very well placed in the village center. The kitchen and bathroom are well fitted out. The main living room is pleasingly restored and furnished. The upstairs sleeping quarters are close but perfectly adequate. I would come again. It would suit walkers-sightseers / a couple of adults with young children or alternatively a couple friends. Three points i felt i should raise, none of which should hinder any potential bookings for now at least : 1. The fridge/freezer looks like it's done a long service and seemed to me to now be struggling. Maybe the owner could check when they next visit. 2. The grilling function in the oven didn't work (it's symbol has also been removed from the oven control knob, suggesting the owners already know this.) Not crucial but it meant on rainy afternoons, no cheese-on-toast or Croque-Monsieur currently on the menu at Orchard Cottage. (Though there is a pop-up toaster on the counter.) 3. Both the previous visitor and myself on two occasions experienced a failure of the rubbish to be collected when the bins/boxes were put out. This may be a mixture of an irregular pattern caused by periods the cottage is empty as well as cars constantly parking for very short duration directly outside the cottage pathway/gate as people pop into the village shop opposite there-by obscuring and blocking access to any bins/boxes placed on the pavement. Both these possibly leading to the rubbish-cart missing the pick-up. Whatever, it seems like something the owner needs to look into and perhaps alter instructions about street placement.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comment. Nice to read you enjoyed the character of the cottage. Regarding the 3 points you mentioned: The fridge/freezer has always worked perfectly. We shall have a closer look. We will replace the oven. The micro-wave also can be used as an oven and grill. So cheese on toast etc. is always possible. We will look at the schedule/instruction of the bin collection. In all the years we have used the bin we have never had a problem with the collections by the District Council. We place the bin outside the garden on the end of the tarmac path near the road.

    Lovely cottage in an ideal location. The cottage was an ideal size for the two of us with our small dog. Would have been a bit of a squeeze for 5 adults as 2nd bedroom was tight, but not a problem for us. Extremely well-equipped cottage, especially kitchen equipment. Stairs had to be negotiated with care, but you quickly develop the knack! The outside area is very pleasant and the location in the heart of the pretty village of Hook Norton is ideal. Didn't get starter pack of logs, but eventually picked some up from the village shop opposite - storage heaters worked fine in any case. All in all we had a lovely restful week at Orchard Cottage. Highly recommended.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We appreciate your comment and apologise for the fact that there was no starter-pack. There is always wood in the shed.
