“Lovely character close to all services”
Reviewed 25 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Very lovely presented Cotswold stone cottage, Modern facilities but still with character. Is in the centre of the town so you must expect to hear people walking past at night and deliveries to shop a few doors away in the morning. But if you are really risers like us it is not an issue. Great breakfast just over the road at Huxley/s and the Sunday roast at the Eight Bells was a real treat. The property was very clean and had everything you need for a cosy stay away. Was able to park right outside and it was very easy to locate the keys from the safe box two doors down.

“Perfect winter retreat!”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We have stayed here for the last two Christmases and couldn't have wished for anything better. The cottage is ideally located in the high street (near the start of the Cotswold Way) and is just a few minutes' walk from shops, restaurants and pubs. It's warm, cosy and comfortable, and is very nicely furnished. The bed is particularly comfy and the bathroom is very well laid out, with a very large shower. The lounge is spacious yet snug, and it's lovely watching the world go by from the window seat. The cottage is perfect for the dog, too, with an enclosed yard. There is some noise from traffic, but as we live on a main road at home, this wasn't an issue for us at all. We cannot recommend Thornton highly enough!

“Awesome Location”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Coming from India, i had just heard of Cotswolds and based on trip advisors recommendation, i booked the Thornton being a bit skeptical and mostly living in hotels, was a bit wary.

However, when i reached Thornton, it was described, lovely place and so conveniently located to One Stop (convenience store) and the restaurants and shops. Thornton had every amenity that a house has and perfect for a couple, it was just superb, the place was as described, specially the living room loved to sit by the fire place and read, nice and cozy.

Will Adams the contact person , was very patient whenever i called him, he heard me very patiently and answered all my queries including when i reached there to get the keys, despite the description given on email (thats me :) ).

The only drawback was it was at ground level so passers by do peek in time and again, and the noise of the traffic at early am is a bit of a bother, but thats being on a busy street, we learnt to ignore it for having a convenient location, would definitely visit again.

“Left feeling fully recharged”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage is in an ideal location. It can be a little noisy at times,but you would expect this as it's on the High Street,and it's hardly city centre noise! I had a lovely short break and returned home feeling very refreshed. There's plenty to do and see in and around Chipping Campden, but equally there are some lovely places to simply eat, drink and relax as you watch the world go by. I'd definitely recommend it.

“Amazing weekend away in the beautiful cottage.”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Gorgeous cottage in a quiet village. Loved the challenge of trying to find the key safe initially. Parking is ideal, we parked right opposite Thornton on the street.

The pictures don't do this place justice. The property is spacious and clean. Initially the property was very cold but putting the heating on soon warmed the place up. The log fire was a nice treat however no logs were left. A quick phone call to the owner soon sorted this out. The cottage does have wifi however very hit and miss doesn't work in the lounge.
The bed is super comfy!! One point to note is that the windows are single glazed as to be expected so traffic can be heard. Various pubs and restaurants locally for food.

Two negative points.
1) the hard carpet throughout the property hurts bare feet.
2) the toilet, there was a memo stating the plumbing and toilet were very old as expected. Therefore sometimes the toilet doesn't flush that well.

We went on a lovely long walk from the cottage in chipping campden to Broadway tower then off to the centre of Broadway. Highly recommend just don't get lost like we did.

Would happily go back to this place! Value for money.
