Lovely cottage in beautiful village. We were 3 couples who shared cottage for long weekend to explore the area. Cottage was lovely and clean and well equipped. Short walk to centre of village. Owner was easy to correspond with. Would highly recommend it

Highly recommend the delightful Pussycat Cottage. Pretty and inviting on the outside, cosy and welcoming on the inside. Tastefully decorated, spotless and very comfortable. Easy to find, and a perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds. We'll be back!

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Met our friends from London at the beautiful Pussycat Cottage. Every night we went out to eat then got back as quickly as possible to spend the rest of our evening just sitting, talking, laughing. We had the best time and shed a tear when leaving. What a wonderful week, thank you to Emily for answering questions and for letting us use your lovely cottage. We loved sitting outside in the morning, the weather was perfect as well. Thank you and we will return.

“A Picture Perfect Cotswold Cottage”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful time on Mousetrap Lane! My mom, teenage daughter and I loved our stay. The cottage is darling and we were torn each day between staying at the cottage and leaving to do some sightseeing. It is perfect for relaxing, charming decor, and very comfy mattresses, always a plus! Waking to the soft church bells was a delight. Quiet lane, lovely walk to pretty village center and an easy drive (well, not so easy for this California driver with so many tiny roads!) to many other picturesque Cotswolds towns. The nearby Mousetrap Inn had delicious dining, the local bakery was irresistible. The kitchen is well equipped for having a meal in.

I would suggest to include a description of the stairway, even for nimble walkers you had to be careful, and it was tricky for my elderly mother. Maybe the option of a convertible sofabed in the extra room downstairs?

Emily and Tim were very responsive and helpful, thank you so much! We have been to London and outlying cities a number of times in the past, but never to the Costwolds, and it is now one of my favorite places, ever! The Pussycat was a very enjoyable part of our trip.

“Purrrrfect for our Cotswold stay”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

There are A LOT of holiday rentals in the Cotswolds. After days of searching for the perfect cottage for our three day stay in the Cotswolds I finally found Pussycat Cottage through the HomeAway website:
- not too big (but still with 3 bedrooms for 4 people)
- not too small
- located in a beautiful village with shops and facilities
- welcoming to children
- happy to accept less than a weeks booking.
The pussycat and rabbit decor was a bonus, and it was then (as a family of cat and rabbit lovers) that I knew it was meant to be.

Emily was very prompt in her emails with the booking and payment. Arranging international payments and refunds has been a bit painful, and perhaps a method of online payment might be something to think about in the future.

The cottage was well stocked, the bedrooms all beautifully decorated, and lovely village views from the bedrooms at the front. The only negative is the rather awkward set of stairs that lead up to the bedrooms, not great for elderly people (or even tall middle-aged people) but that is the way with many old English houses.

The key system worked well saving us from standing out in the cold trying to hunt down the owner/landlord, as occurred at a couple of other places we stayed.

Our family of four loved our stay at the cottage (mum, dad, 5yo son and grandma).

“Pretty, very comfortable Cotwswold cottage in perfect location”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Three of us have just enjoyed a very relaxing 3 night break at this very cute cottage. It's very well equipped, clean and surprisingly roomy with a sunny courtyard garden. The location is perfect, just a short stroll from the centre with lots of restaurants and tea shops. The surrounding countryside is stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed a ten mile circular walk through Upper and Lower Slaughter. Emily and Tim were extremely efficient and very friendly and helpful. Would definitely love to return and explore more of the surrounding villages.

“Country charm with modern comforts at Pussycat Cottage”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed for 3 nights with our 3 children recently. Ideal location, very quiet and short stroll to local restaurants and shops. Had everything we needed and host was super friendly and made sure we were comfortable which was great. Highly recommend as a great base to explore the friendly Cotswold villages.
