This detached holiday cottage is aptly named, with several large ponds, a great variety of ducks and birdlife in the area and the owner’s living on-site. Visitors have sole use of a fully enclsoed pond area to the side of the cottage, ideal for dogs and children. Just 1 mile from Cricklade, a small, historic, 9th-century Saxon town, lying at the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is the only Wiltshire town situated on the banks of the River Thames. It’s midway between Swindon and Cirencester, and is surrounded by lovely countryside ideal for walking, riding and cycling. At the north of the town is North Meadow, now a National Nature Reserve, and home to the rare ’Snakeshead Fritillary’ which flower in April. Nearby is the Cotswold Water Park which offers activities including sailing, water/jet skiing, fishing and bird watching. Travelling around the Cotswolds there are many places to visit, step back in time by wandering the streets of the Regency spa town of Cheltenham, as well as ancient market towns such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Anglo-Saxon Winchcombe, where you’ll discover Sudeley Castle. Beautiful ancient villages of note in this area include Broadway (’Jewel of the Cotswolds’), Bourton-on-the-Water (Little Venice), Stanton, and Snowshill. Some of the best Cotswold gardens include Batsford Arboretum, Hidcote, Kiftsgate, Sezincote and Bourton House. Leading visitor attractions include Snowshill Manor, the mysterious Rollright Stones and Chastleton House. Some particularly special historic towns include Cirencester (the Roman capital of the Cotswolds), Tetbury, Painswick (often called Queen of the Cotswolds), Burford, Malmesbury and Woodstock (home of Blenheim Palace). Some tourist attractions of special note are Westonbirt Arboretum, Woodchester Mansion, Kelmscot Manor, Malmesbury Abbey and Gardens, and the village of Bibury, which was once described by William Morris as ’the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds’. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    We had a really fantastic stay at Pond Cottage. The hosts were so lovely and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the entire place felt like home. We regret not booking to stay longer as we loved it. We will definitely be staying again.

    The hostess was very welcoming and helpful. She had taken the trouble to add many tasteful Christmas decorations. We enjoyed our day in Cirencester particularly the fine museum.

    We spend a very nice week in the cottage with 4 persons and a dog. The cottage is extremely comfortable and lovely. All you need you will find. The landlords have an open ear for all your questions and always a helping hand.

    Very near large industrial estate. Horse stables on site with accompanying smells. Property has had some DIY done, which is badly finished in many areas. Bad mould n downstairs shower room. Filthy grouting in tiled floo throughout lounge. Dirty Windows, sone with mould on frames. Walkin wardrobe in main bedroom not hoovered, duvet not pressed and therefore creased. Dishwasher needing dishwash salt, therefore leaving dishes not properly cleaned. Overall we considered property grubby and very disappointing. Garden in bad need of upkeep and lawn needs mowing, removal of weeds including stinging nettles. Dangerous stair gate at bottom of stairs. We only stayed one night, we just were not comfortable staying.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry you did not feel comfortable at our cottage, as you can see from the overall score and majority of reviews, we make it a top priority to ensure all of our guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay at our property. It is such a shame you left in the early hours without giving us chance to quickly and easily rectify the issues you have raised above. There is an Industrial estate in the area, but it is not next door to the property. The property is in the country and animal smells are not uncommon. The DIY is not done badly, the cottage is as reflected in the images –a neat, spacious cottage. The Grout in the tiles in the lounge is brown in colour and not dirty. There is not mould in the downstairs shower room, it is in fact the paint on ceiling which is salmon pink in colour. The nettles mentioned are in pond, which has dried up due to the hot summer weather. The stair gate is removable and could have been removed easily for you if it was causing concern.

    Wonderful small cottage in the grounds of the owners’ house. Comfortable, like a home-from-home. Louise was lovely.
