“Amazing, peaceful and cosy”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spent last Christmas at Hobby's. It was warm and neat, very clean but cosy for two. The bed and other furniture was very comfortable (I have a bad back). Everything you need was provided in this well planned, awesome little spot in the Cotswolds. Although it is set in a large secured area in Somerford Keynes you can choose to enjoy the peaceful tranquillity and sit out or go for beautiful walks but, there is also an on site restaurant (didn't get great service there) and well stocked shop. There are also a few pubs within a short drive that do good meals.

Dear Jaxf37
Thank you so much for sharing your enjoyable experience at Hobby's Rest. We're so pleased that you found the cottage to be "amazing, peaceful and cosy" for your winter break.
We look forward to welcoming you both again soon. (We are sure you will love the extended living space - planned for 2017 - with full height/length windows to maximise the beautiful orchard views!)
