    Really lovely stay. Perfectly cosy cottage with a great pub with restaurant just a few minutes walk from cottage. If you want a retreat in a beautiful place with lovely walks and villages nearby this is a great choice. Very well equipped cottage and spotlessly clean. Perfectly situated to main Cotswolds towns. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Another relaxing Christmas break in a fabulous cottage. Perfect in so many ways! Only one minor point would be lack of welcome gift when we arrived.

    My partner and I stayed at Pixie for one week and sadly we will not be returning. The cottage itself is lovely and the area is beautiful, but there were plenty of things we didn't appreciate about how the house was kept or presented. On our arrival the bins outside were already full, we referred to the bin collection information in the kitchen and the wrong day is listed on them, so we had another weeks worth of food waste to add on top of already full & rotting waste. Secondly, the house was covered in cob webs and we had several unwelcome spiders to remove on our first day. We also found woodlice all over the bedroom & kitchen. The kitchen kettle was caked in limescale and my partner spent half an hour scrubbing it off before we could have a decent cup of tea. There is no instant hot water. The cold bath tap is broken and only dribbles out cold water. There is damp/mould in the bedroom which triggered my partner's chronic asthma. We were told that we would be supplied with firewood, but we were only given less than half a bag of kindling and 2 logs (not even enough to keep a fire going for one evening). Overall, as lovely as the house itself is, there were so many disappointing issues, that we dreaded going back to it after a day out.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It is of course a disappointment when a guest does not like the cottage but we were surprised to read this as the guests who left on the day this guest arrived commented that it had been their fourth stay in Pixie and they would definitely be returning again, as do a number of our guests. We are assured by the caretaker that the cottage was thoroughly cleaned before this guest arrived and the removal of cobwebs is standard cleaning practice. We cannot of course deny there may have been a spider or two lurking in the cottage; it is after all an old cottage in the country! We have never seen wood lice in the cottage although some may have accompanied the logs that were provided. The information given on the website clearly states 'initial fuel included'. The caretaker laid the fire and spare logs were provided. The information pack directs guests to locations where further logs can be purchased. The kettle is only some 3 months old and is regularly descaled. The hot water is provided by an electric immersion heater which once switched on is left on. Hot water arrives in the tap within seconds of the tap being turned on. The cold water tap was repaired within hours of the caretaker being made aware of it. There is a 7 day emergency call out service operated by the caretaker for such repairs. Heating in the cottage is also provided by electric storage heaters which are on, when the cottage is occupied, from October to April and the cottage is warm. Condensation can build up if the windows are not opened occasionally and could give the impression of damp. The cottage was re-decorated in August. There does seem to have been an issue over the rubbish collection as the Council changed the dates of collection but the rubbish collection information which is clearly displayed on the kitchen wall is correct. As said, disappointing this guest did not enjoy her stay but what puzzles us is why no effort was made to contact the caretaker to resolve the issues. The caretaker is available 7 days a week and the contact number is clearly shown in the information folder. If contact had been made all these issues could have been speedily resolved and she could have looked forward to returning to a warm fire and hot bath.

    We really liked Pixie Cottage and the village of Naunton, it was a great location for country walks with the dog. Yes, the cottage is small but it was perfectly adequate for 2 adults and our dog. It was cosy and comfortable and the woodburner was an added bonus. The place was very clean and it was good to have an enclosed garden for the dog. The lack of a shower was a little awkward but it is well documented and there is always the option to have a quick soak in the bath instead. The cottage was fairly well equipped for it's size but would have liked some walking maps in the cottage as the village is situated in great walking country. We had a lovely stay there and would recommend especially for a long weekend.

    A great place to get away from it all, good location for exploring the Cotswolds with some great walks in the doorstep.

    Lovely little cottage in a perfect location for walking and relaxing . The only negative comment I would like to make is the mattress. Needs a new one ! Very uncomfortable , apart from that everything is perfect . Whilst I stayed there , we had major roadworks directly outside the cottage . Which I feel should of been warned about before our arrival !

    The moment we opened the door we were hit by a musty smell. There is mould in the cottage, it appears that attempts are made to clean it up but if you have an allergy stay away. The cottage was cold upon arrival, there was no firewood supplied and nowhere in the village to buy any. The heaters operate on overnight low Tarif electricity so the first night is cold. The cottage is much smaller than it looks in the photos, we were not able to open both suitcases on the living room floor at the same time. The stairs are so shallow and steep that we did not risk trying to get our heavy cases up the stairs to the bedroom. The carpet upstairs was dirty. We had booked and paid in advance for a three night stay but left a day early.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. The cottage is fully and accurately described on the website thus: 'A delightful, typical little Grade II listed cottage...with steep stairs', and further 'Steep stairs to first floor, narrow at bottom' The fire was laid in the stove and required just the striking of a match (supplied) and application of it to the paper to get the fire going. Logs were supplied and stacked next to the stove. The information folder gives clear information how to use the stove and where further logs can be obtained if needed. The storage heaters are not switched on during the summer as guests have previously said the cottage can become too warm; however a standalone electric heater is supplied to help cope with the vagaries of the British summer. I have not seen this guest's suitcases so cannot comment about their size, I can say that two standard sized suitcases can be easily opened in the sitting room with ample room to spare. Other guests have left very favourable comments in the visitor’s book and it is regretted that this guest’s expectations were not met.
