“Gorgeous modern cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds!”

We stayed at Michaelmas cottage recently for a mini reunion of four university friends, and we can't recommend the cottage highly enough. The owner Alison was so helpful throughout the process- emailing us with an information pack on how to access the cottage, how to operate heating etc and kindly providing us with tips on where to eat and things to do in the area. She even posted my phone charger back to me after I'd left it in the room.

The cottage itself is even nicer than it comes across in the photos- it has that old cottage charm with a modern edge, a lovely garden and a nice bright feel to it. The wood burner in the sitting room was a lovely feature, and great to gather round after a long day walking through the gorgeous autumnal countryside. There are also two bathrooms, which was ideal for the four of us, and it felt like there was plenty of space for us all. It really helped to make our weekend special. We'll definitely be back.

“Lovely cottage, feels like home”

As there are already many positive reviews, there is little to add. You can see that the owners take very well care of this cottage, so it feels like staying in somebody's home. Also the cottage is remarkably light on the inside and has an ideal arrangement of separate living, dining room and kitchen. Quiet location bit still in the middle of everything in the Cotswolds.
As an example, a nice surprise to us: one afternoon we walked from the cottage to Sezincote, with tea and cake and tour through the house, highly recommended.

“Wonderful!!!”

We spent a week in this cottage. It was perfect beyond our imagination. The kitchen was in great working condition. Everything clean and easy to use. Plenty of space for everyone. It was extremely welcoming and comfortable. The bathrooms were modern and up to date. The cottage is full of natural light yet easy to create privacy when needed. We enjoyed the outdoor area even having breakfast outside one day. Neighbors were friendly and even apologized for having to mow his yard while we were drinking wine outdoors. Verrry sweet! Directions for the cottage use were easy and covered everything we needed. Plenty of linens and dishes for our use. Thank you for the amazing week!

We just came home from a one week stay at Michelmas Cottage and would like to recommend this cottage highly. It is full of character, very nice, well equipped and we loved to stay there. There are some good restaurants within a few minutes and the falconary center is nearby. You can reach National Trust sides and other interesting towns and spots within a short ride.
If it is possible, we would like to return in the near future.
Many thanks to the owner.

We stayed for three (3) nights in August and absolutely loved Michaelmas Cottage. We traveled as a family (two kids) plus my Mom. The kids loved playing in the backyard and seeing the sheep just outside their bedroom window. Cottage was clean, welcoming, and had everything we needed. Great proximity to other villages in the Cotswolds area. The owner Alison is very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
