“Excellent”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a fantastic place to stay. The cottage itself is lovely and welcoming and really is a home from home. Very well equipped with everything you need. The children loved the gardens and the visits from the ducks and ducklings were a joy. The location is great - not to far from anywhere. Clive and Kaeren were on hand to offer advice and directions if needed and really we felt like we were leaving friends when it was time to come home. We have found a true gem of a place and will not hesitate to book again in future.

“without a doubt the best value for money”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I would strongly recommend this cottage to stay in. Clive and his lovely wife have the place packed with everything you could possibly need. The place is spotlessly clean. In a fantastic setting with beautiful gardens and a duck pond, outdoor seating and even games in the summerhouse for the children to use. In the tv unit are books and literally 100s of leaflets from visitor attractions, restaurants, takeaways ect ect so everything you can possibly do is catered for.
Without a doubt we have found a place we will return to for many years yo come.

“Wonderful stay.”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely, relaxing place. We loved watching the ducks, rabbits and squirrel in the pretty and thoughtfully planned garden. The cottage was really well equipped and comfortable.
Clive and Kaeren were friendly and helpful. The welcome cake, tea/coffee and milk were much appreciated.

Just off the A417 the cottage is really well situated for exploring the area.
There is a garage and Londis supermarket at the end of Lawn Road (walking distance)
and numerous pub/restaurants nearby.

“Perfect Touring Base....”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Had a great stay here, perfect location for getting to the cities and hills of Gloucester and Worcestershire. The owners were very helpful, they even put away our shopping as we were late getting there!!! Got our holiday off to a great start, thank you so much.
The cottage itself was clean and well appointed, we lacked for nothing and the kids loved the ducks and rabbits visiting the window every day, the garden is fabulous.
Only improvement I'd have liked was more reliable wifi, but for the price we paid and the quality of the cottage its a minor gripe. Book it now, you won't regret it!

Many thanks for your review.
We will continue to try & improve the wi-fi in Orchard Cottage.
Our signal strength is often fine but can dip on occasions, BT !!!
Dovecote Cottage gets a stronger signal.

“'A little bit of heaven'”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful accommodation, spotlessly clean, lovely beds! An abundance of wildlife right outside our window which kept us amused for hours. Plenty to do within easy distance ~ would recommend highly. Clive and Kaeren were lovely, always on hand but not intrusive. Back to reality now but will definitely be back! Thank you so much both!

“Excellent accommodation, fantastic garden, warm and friendly hosts”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Clive and Kaeren were warm and friendly hosts, always happy to have a chat and to help recommend places to visit. Orchard Cottage was a clean and comfortable place to stay, a real home away from home and the large garden was an excellent place for the kids to play, they really loved it here and wished that we could take the garden home with us.
