Perfect cottage for 2 two couples
A lovely cottage located in a quiet area of the Cotswolds. We found the house perfectly suited for 4 of us and a dog. The location was great, nice walks in the area and plenty to see a short drive away. The local pub is a stones trow away and serves lovely food, including a delicious full English breakfast. The house itself is warm, cozy and a nice size for 4 people. We even lit the wood burner in the living room using the provided wood and lighters. We will certainly stay here again on our next adventure to this part of the world.

Just Perfect
Having lived & worked in the Cotswolds, I am always happy to return. Such a tranquil place & Rose Cottage did not disappoint. A quaint cottage with all the things you need; with adequate access to the Cotswold towns. It was a complete bonus to have a wood burner; which I’m a sucker for!, with village shop & a choice of pubs to choose from. The fact that the cottage is pet friendly is great & we will definitely be returning; hopefully with the cottage being available for our chosen date. Can’t wait to go back!

Perfect base that immediately felt like home.
Situated in very pretty (and famous, in its own way) village that welcomes you and adds to the charm. Great for exploring surrounding area, which is also super walking country if you are looking for it. House has everything you will need; it's comfortable, quiet and is pet-friendly too. We loved it and also appreciated the no-fuss approach of the owners. Great place to stay and definitely recommended.

Rose Cottage, Hook Norton
Booked a 4nt trip to this very quaint little cottage on the edge of the Cotswolds, the cottage was a perfect size for 4 people and a small dog, great location, beautiful village, fantastic dog-friendly pubs and the bonus of Hook Norton Brewery within walking distance from the cottage. We had a fabulous time, hope to return in the near future, thank you XX
