I was in the UK for business for two weeks, and had a long weekend to spend anywhere; as I was visiting customers near Swindon/Bath/Northampton/Birmingham, I chose the Cotswolds and stumbled across this gem on hotels.com. Wow, did I hit the jackpot! Willowside is a farm with a beautifully renovated farmhouse, and is the home of the lovely Jane and David who went out of their way to make me feel at home from the first moment.
The room itself was gorgeous, airy, and the bed supremely comfy (I kept sleeping late because I was sleeping so well!) but the best was the enormous sunny bathroom with a tub for soaking (which I did twice after long countryside walks). David made a huge, delicious breakfast every morning, and Jane had lovely cakes and tea every afternoon. Their knowledge of the local area is unparalleled and the activities they recommended were spot on, from local walks to food to shopping, even a massage!
Jane and David looked after me in every way possible, and when the weekend was over I definitely did NOT want to leave. Fortunately the location is very convenient to lots of big cities so I didn't have to drive far to see my customers (only about 1 hr, and the house is 15-20 mins to the motorway). I couldn't have asked for a better weekend break to forget about business for awhile. Oh, and the wifi is super fast for those who can't detach themselves from work :-)
I can't wait to come back again soon and feed the hens, walk through the village and meet the newborn lambs!
