    Wonderful cottage, we have stayed in the cottage a couple of times before and really enjoy the location and cosy atmosphere. We could definitely stay again and thank you for the truffles, milk and shortbread that were there on our arrival.

    Nice quaint cottage but needs a lot of updating , there was too much furniture in the cottage , kitchen was very small , no where to put shower head but couldn't have a shower due to leaking into the kitchen which was reported , bedroom furniture smelt musty and mattress was uncomfortable . Was told bin collection day was a Wednesday but was a Tuesday so bins didn't get emptied . Cottage had so much potential but obviously the owners don't want to spend any money on it which is a shame . The Cotswolds is a lovely place and would go back but would not stay at pixie cottage again there are better cottages for the same price

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I appreciate this guest's comments and thank her for them. As she will have seen the guests prior to her expressed very different opinions in the guest book. Yes the kitchen is small, it is a small cottage, but the kitchen is fully equipped with stove, double oven, microwave, fridge/freezer. A plumber attended as soon as the leak was reported and the option was given to have the leak fully repaired during the guests stay which would have required them to be in attendance for the half day the work would take, or a temporary fix put in place until they left, which was the option chosen. The leak was fully repaired on the changeover day. On a close examination of the mattress it was found that for some reason it had been turned upside down, it has however been replaced. I can assure the guest that we do spend money on the cottage, it is due to be re-decorated later this year, but we like it to retain its character, a grade II listed workman's cottage, which is popular with so many of our guests.

    Pixie cottage was adequate for our needs.The only local amenity was the local pub,the nearest shop was some miles away.The kitchen was very well equipped but we would have preferred a fridge with a larger capacity and less freezer.

    worthless kitchen and a bad bathroom. very simple gardenfourniture.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It is unfortunate that these guests found the cottage was not suitable for their requirements. What has to be remembered about Pixie is that it is a small cottage for 2 people with low beams and doorways and steep stairs. The kitchen is a galley kitchen but is equipped with a 2 year old 4 plate hob and double oven with grill, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, usual utensils and 4 sets of glasses, cutlery and crockery. The bathroom was re-tiled last year and is thoroughly cleaned after each guest. The garden furniture is a table and 2 chairs. The location is a quiet out of the way typical Cotswold village. We do have guests contacting us to enquire further about the cottage before booking; perhaps a few pre-booking enquiries might have shown it was not what these guests were looking for?

    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.
