“Excellent base for a Cotswold holiday”
Reviewed September 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Tastefully decorated, very tidy and a quiet location, ideal for walking into Nailsworth for shopping and eating. Comfortable firm mattress, plenty of space, view over the valley, easy parking, excellent wifi reception, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, cooktop, washing machine and Jackie lent us her clothes airer as well. Ten minutes to the bigger supermarkets in Stroud, ten minutes to the Kitchen in Minchinhampton. Thank you Jackie.

“Five star *****”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned home today from mon-fri stay at this accommodation. Home from home luxury apartment, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen right down to tea towels and cleaning products. Plenty of storage space (wardrobes, chest if drawers) lovely comfy bed and pillows, beautifully and stylishly furnished and decorated, parking space, beautiful views over the village and countryside. Situated in a picturesque village with quaint shops and restaurants (mostly only open thurs/fri/sat) but plenty within short drive. Could go on but we really loved it and will be returning as our son lives a couple of miles away. We took our little dog Dexter too so very dog friendly. Free and fast wifi . Thanks jackie and andrew xxx

“Beautifully finished, well appointed and very comfortable.”

The Old Manse Retreat was a perfect base from which to explore the Cotswolds. Hosts were obliging and welcoming. Had a wonderful few days here.

“Simply Perfect !!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We wanted somewhere that we could just escape the hustle and bustle of work and came across this little gem. It is a beautifully equipped and located apartment that has everything you need when you are home from home. The attention to detail is second to none and the pictures do not do it justice! We were stunned how much larger it was in real life (compared to the photos). Jackie and her partner were lovely and welcoming; there is you needed them but never intrusive. Thank you both for the opportunity to recharge our batteries!! We would have given you 6/5 if that was possible!

“perfect cosy bolt hole”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a week in May, although it was a very wet/windy week in May it was so nice every evening returning to a warm/dry/cosy apartment.
Absolutely everything you could need for a weeks stay was there, all the furniture and home accessories are to a very high spec. its all very modern and well thought out.
Parking is no problem at all, and the town of Nailsworth a 10 mins walk away with loads of lovely places to eat and nice shops... it's definitely the place to go if like us you are foodies!
We enjoyed meals at -oldstone/ mark@street /the olive tree. and many more..... We have already booked another week for next year!

“A modern apartment/flat with fantastic views.”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very clean, bright and modern accommodation. Every you need is provided in the accommodation and very convenient to the town centre and shops although it is a very steep hill for carrying shop back on foot!!! Very friendly owners who make you feel welcome parking in front of the accommodation is very convenient.
