“Lovely and relaxing”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent beautiful days at Glen Cottage! The landscape of Bussage was fantastic. The cottage was well organised and charming. The owners (kind and very nice) prepared good bread for our breakfast. Our proposal was spending few days in the famous English countryside and we did! Bussage is near to Stroud and by bus you can visit all the southern and western Cotswolds (Tetbury, Circenster, Bibury, for example). The nature was great and the public footpaths fantastic for running or walking. Not far from the cottage you can find also a typical pub with good food and beers! So Glen Cottage was an excellent solution for our holidays.

“Idyllic location, perfect little cottage”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our stay at Glen cottage was wonderful, the friendly welcome & clean, beautifully appointed accommodation couldn't have been better. Really helpful instructions & guides to the locality, easy access to owners if needed & all the comforts of home.
Fresh flowers & home-made bread were a lovely touch.
Bussage is so pretty & well worth exploring, with amazing views across the valley & a really friendly local pub only 5 mins walk from the cottage.
Thank you

“Lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings / mooi huisje in rustige omgeving”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a week in Glen Cottage with a two and six year old. Lots to see and do for all near by. Particularly liked the local walks, playground and a walk around Minchinhampton. Owners very helpful to suggest outings, walks, pubs, etc. Cottage is lovely with all amenities with toys and DVDs thrown in for rainy days (luckily didn't need them!). Will definitely be back!

We logeerden een week in Glen Cottage. Mooi huisje met alle voorzieningen, zoals wasmachine en afwasmachine en zelfs DVDs voor een regenachtige dag. De eigenaar is erg behulpzaam en weet allerlei leuke wandelingen, pubs en uitjes in de buurt, ook met kinderen. Er is een speeltuin om de hoek en veel te doen in de nabije omgeving. We komen zeker terug.

“The perfect holiday escape”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Booked for 4nights at Glen Cottage as a last minute break with 3 friends. Wanting a break from city life, Glen Cottage was the ideal escape. The tranquil, peaceful surroundings immediately make you relax and feel a million miles from any hustle and bustle. The cottage itself is beautiful. Immaculate in its appearance, extremely clean and very comfortable for 4 people to share. The views from the garden are amazing and what you would expect from a country retreat. We walked as much as we could and stumbled across the quaint country pub (Ram Inn). The locals were very friendly and we immediately felt welcome and comfortable. Providing some local beers and ales we very quickly felt at home. The following day we wandered down into the valley and went to the Stroud Brewery which has a great pop-up pizzeria, local beer and pizza doesn't get much better than that!
Last point to note are the owners of the cottage, Rob and Andrea. They were extremely helpful and made us all feel very welcome in their village. They were also great with ideas of things to do while at Glen Cottage.

A highly recommended country escape

“Beautifully appointed, great location in a peaceful cotswold village.”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just spent a lovely weekend at Glen Cottage. The cottage is newly refurbished and has been beautifully decorated with all the amenities you need. There are beautiful views from the terraced garden across the valley.
It is a short walk to the village pub which is very friendly. Slightly further is another good pub in the next village.
There are lots of stunning walks in the area, and great cycling too.
We had a small issue during our stay, but the owner immediately rectified it. Excellent service.
We would thoroughly recommend staying at Glen Cottage and we will return.

“A charming cottage set in an idyllic, peaceful location”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here with our two young boys and had a wonderful experience. The cottage was clean and comfortable: well furnished and equipped. It is set in a very peaceful location with no traffic noise. The beds were very comfortable and I slept very well. Also, there is a park close by with an excellent play area for children and a skate park, with concrete half-pipe. So lots to keep the kids busy. I would certainly recommend to others and also hope to be able to stay there again next time I'm in the area.
