    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 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.

    A great location and we found the locals very friendly. There are dozens of beautiful walks straight from the door. I was disappointed to find the patio had 4 different refuse bins on it. These were removed before the photo on the website was taken. Fortunately we had taken our own OS maps as none were available in the cottage. The caretaker quickly resolved a problem for us. We'd happily stay there again.

    Quaint cottage bursting with charm and character! It's located in a picturesque traditional Cotswolds village and the perfect location for beautiful walks, including longer walks to Bourton-on-the-Water. The equipment is rather basic but didn't deter from the comfort and enjoyment of our stay. We loved the 'old' and traditional feel of the cottage

    Sadly the cottage although cosy and cute was a let down the mould in the bedroom was bad very bad, and the bed very uncomfortable the furniture was in a bad state with drawers not opening without a lot of force. No shower with tiling that leaked into kitchen was not great either. There was some nice aspects but a sadly my partner has had health issues with his lungs and been in hospital and the mouldy walls were not good. The village was very dead with only the pub being the only place to see other living soles. It was a pity it was a let down as it was a special break. The kitchen needs more equipment, knives and forks etc. Overall it was a let down

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We’re sorry this guest did not enjoy her stay. Pixie Cottage is what it says in the description, an old workman’s cottage and it is furnished, we think, comfortably but appropriately. We are aware of the problem of mould in some areas which is caused by condensation. The cleaners treat it every change over with mould remover. The cottage is due to be redecorated later this year. We are surprised at the comment about the bed. The mattress is in good condition and has a feather down topper. Other guests have commented that they find the bed very comfortable. The description clearly states there is ‘a bath with shower attachment’. The bathroom was retiled last year and there have been a couple of snags but the leak has now been repaired. Again we are surprised at the comment about the kitchen equipment. The cottage is equipped according to the guidelines for holiday accommodation, sufficient equipment for double the maximum number of guests which for Pixie is two. Unfortunately we have no control over village life or the activity of the souls who live there. Many of our guests find the peace and quiet offered by the location to be a major reason for renting the cottage. Perhaps some investigation of the area prior to booking would have been appropriate?

    A cosy little cottage with a lovely wood burner, in a nice location which was fine for a few days' stay, but I'm not sure we would stay for any longer - the tiny kitchen made preparing food difficult, and we prefer somewhere with a more modern kitchen and bathroom (but this is just personal taste). We also found cleaning products lying around the cottage, the housekeeper had obviously not put them away after cleaning, which was a little odd!
