This Grade II listed cottage is at the centre of village life with quaint pubs, shop and even its own steam driven brewery!

    Lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need. Take newspaper if you want to light the fire as it's quite tricky.

    Squirrel Cottage is very small but perfectly adequate for a couple for a short stay. It is warm, and made all the more comfortable by having the oil fired Rayburn - though the burners were unexpectedly noisy. The village is convenient with a good local shop, two friendly pubs and an absolutely fascinating family owned Victorian brewery, producing wonderful beer. It is a good base for visiting the Cotswolds, Oxford and, I guess, other interesting towns within easy driving distance.

    Difficult to contact absentee landlady particularly as there is no mobile reception at the cottage - WiFi is fine though Central heating failed for 2 days and then had to be operated manually by using the box we were instructed not to touch Hot water in bathroom failed for 36 hours until helpful handyman came. Could not operate DVD player - no instructions found and handyman could not advise. Instructions for recycling and location of bins not clear Too complicated to learn how to use the Rayburn in a short time and the portable electric rings were not clean when we arrived No welcome pack found-only tea and Nescafé

    Good cottage, great location. Rayburn took a little getting used to but we managed ok in the end (even cooked a mixed grill in little over an hour!). Local amenities: fish and chip van on Friday was very good, but the local pub (the Sun Inn) didn't live up to its billing and only seemed to serve glorified burgers. Brewery Tour was very good, and the village shop is impressive. Only problems with the cottage were hot water (noisy) and radiators (permanently cold). However wood burner was excellent and easy to light. Would recommend Squirrel Cottage, especially if the heating is sorted.
