“The Perfrect Retreat”
Reviewed December 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is a wonderful little base for a mini break- ideal location for the lovely town of Nailsworth with some great pubs and eateries. The retreat is very well kept, suitably equipped and fantastic value.

“Tranquil, contemporary and comfortable”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I loved this wee hide-away. I wish it was a 'home form home' because it is how I would love to live! The decor was contemporary and 'ideal home' splendid. The design of the accommodation was perfection. It had everything anyone could need (including a dishwasher and washer-dryer tucked away). I contacted Jackie before my stay to say I needed seclusion to get on with an assignment and she left me alone until the penultimate day, just calling in to see everything was OK. By which time I had finished the writing and was desperate for a chat! Other visitors had written in the visitors books saying they had been out for meals with her and her partner - so it is entirely up to your preference.

“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
