“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a very good time in this B&B, good rooms and good beds etc. When we had a dental emergency they were able to book an appointment with a good dentist the following morning!

Thanks Hetty for your review. I would like to make it clear that I run a Bed & Breakfast business here in Highworth and not a self catering cottage as described in the listings. (Not posted by me). Past guests have been very disappointed when the arrived here and we're told that this is a Bed & Breakfast house even though I let them have full use of the kitchen and laundry facilities during their stay.
I would say to any future guests that this is a great place to stay and some great places to visit in the surrounding area and you will be made very welcome.

“A borrowed piece of Paradice and folks with hearts of Gold!”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My husband and I with our sister stayed with Patrick and Kitty O'Shea for two weeks. We wished it could have been longer. Patrick met us at the Swindon train station and took us to the Avis dealer so we could pick up our car. We followed him to Highworth to his home. They are wonderful people, who welcomed us into their home and treated us as honored guests. Their home is lovely and our rooms were fine. The garden was in it"s peak and showed the care that Patrick gave it. The village of Highworth is lovely and had everything we needed for our stay. We walked to High Street for lunch and shopping. The people were friendly and helpful. There were flowers everywhere and the weather was beautiful. Going beyond the call of duty, Patrick graciously drove us to the train station when we left. We would highly recommend their Bed and Breakfast to everyone! We miss them already and pray they come to see us.

This is the second time I have stayed with Patrick and Kitty and I cannot recommend them enough. The bedrooms are comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. Both Patrick and Kitty are so friendly and welcoming

Me and my doughter stayed for a week in the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds' at Highworth near Swindon. Patrick and Kitty O"Shea welcomed us with warm interest and a very nice cup of tea. The whole week we were very well looked after and we had a wonderful time. Breakfast was just as we liked it and we got a lot of information and support from our nice hosts. The house is beautifull and the beds sleep very well. Both Wiltshire and the Cottswolts were easy to reach by car.
