The Slaughters make a lovely base to explore the Cotswolds with nice walks around the surrounding area. The cottage was charming and welcoming, extremely well appointed,warm and spotlessly clean. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort getting tha cottage to this standard.
A relaxing break, that we will definitely repeat.

“Fabulous cottage in beautiful location”

We recently stayed at No 8 for a long weekend with our two young children aged 8 and 5. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, the attention to detail by the owners was outstanding, well decorated whilst still feeling like a home from home, a wonderful log burner, crisp fresh towels and even a chocolate cake, which I must say went down extremely well. No 8 is well positioned in the beautiful village of Upper Slaughter, a village surrounded by outstanding scenery for memorable walks in the countryside. The cottage gives you all the amenities for a home cooked meal whilst being in walking distance from some very nice eateries including; The Slaughters Inn and The Lords of The Manor Hotel. We would highly recommend this amazing cottage for couples, friends or families, it really does cater for all.

We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The cottage was well decorated with all mod cons but still felt very homely. The cottage was well located in Upper Slaughter which is a beautiful little village. The owners were very accommodating and made the booking process very simple and our stay very comfortable. Would love to go back sometime soon and I would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family.

We were very pleased to find this beautiful home exactly as described in Trip Advisor rentals. It was exactly what we were hoping for as far as a short quiet holiday was concerned.

Upper Slaughter is a small, quiet village and this house is in the perfect location. Besides being very comfortable with lovely bedrooms, baths, kitchen and sitting rooms it also had great internet access. This was important so we could look up surrounding houses, gardens and other places to visit. The neighbors were also very friendly and helpful.

Access (key to house) was easy...something I had worried about since this was my first time to rent a house. Parking was very close to the front door.

We stayed at the cottage and had a lovely, long relaxing weekend. The cottage had everything we needed and more. All bedrooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage. It is well maintained and very comfortable.
It was lovely to explore the area and we found information leaflets in the cottage very handy and informative.
We hope to be visiting again soon.

The Cottage was spacious, very well appointed and very clean. It felt like a home from home and not a holiday rental and it is in a perfect location to explore the Cotswolds.
