“A real chocolate box cottage”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a lovely 5 days we have had in a beautifully appointed cottage. It is in a very peaceful village surrounded by fields of yellow rape seed flower and perfect for those who like peace and quiet away from the crowds. The thatch makes it so inviting and once inside you will not be disappointed with its layout and the owners thought of making it cosy. There is a pub within walking distance that does evening meals should you choose and the reviews in the guest book read very well. Although there is lovely garden space to use we only managed a quick half-hour before sunset, lovely space though to unwind with a drink or two.
Overall it was a great stay and would recommend to friends.

“Excellent cottage and location.”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Hi we stayed here for a week last September, we found the cottage to be extremely comfortable and cosy.It is a beautiful example of a chocolate box thatched cottage. It is fitted out to a very high standard and has everything you need to make it a home from home. The cottage is in a great position to use as a base for exploring the local area and is only one mile away from two great pubs, I would recommend eating at the tunnel inn. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends.

“Delightful traditional historic cottage”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in June 2012

A beautiful little cottage in a gorgeous quiet location surrounded by open farmland. The thatched roof, beams, flagged floor and fireplace are stunning. A pleasant garden with fruit trees and lavender. The owners also put some nice little touches in- tea and biscuits and boardgames.

Liked best: No light pollution so you can really see the stars. Sitting in the garden on the comfy furniture at twilight looking over the fields whilst the bats fluttered about.
Liked least: slow draining (although lovely roll top) bath, no lock on loo door and inoperable oven (So complex I couldnt work it even with the manual)

“Everything you need for a romantic break”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We loved the cottage. It was beautifully and sympathetically restored to a very high standard retaking a cosy and romantic feel. It was well equipped and it a perfect peaceful location, with great views. We wanted to return for our anniversary the following year but it booked. We will definitely be going back sometime soon.

“Cosy Thatched Cottage”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We had a lovely stay in Asphodel Cottage. It is charming and well kept. The stair to the bedroom needs some agility to navigate. The owner was helpful and friendly. Beautiful area. It is definitely a 'couple' destination - not suitable for children or someone with a disability.

“Absolutely amazing cottage - would certainly recommend!!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in June 2012

My partner and I were looking for a very last minute getaway in the Cotswolds and came across Asphodel Cottage afterwhich we enquired online and got a response the same day from Martin. He was extremely helpful and made the experience and weekend so enjoyable and stress-free! The cottage and gardens are stunning - even more beautiful than the pictures online. Ideal for couples - would certainly reccommend as could not have asked for more perfect property or location.
