“Fantastic Home”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed for the Easter weekend and had the most wonderful time. The cottage was spacious enough for 8 adults and had everything we needed to make it a home from home. Chris was in contact from the moment we made the booking and on hand throughout our stay in case we needed anything else. Highly recommend this home. Thank you Chris for letting us have a great weekend in your beautiful cottage.

“Best House in Cotswolds”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Troutbeck must be the best house to visit in cotswolds area.

We arrived late, but everything arrange smoothly, we are two family travelled with kids, the kids loved the house as soon as they entred the house. the house is equipped with mordern facilities and a garden with sun-rooms. The weather was a bit cold, but with great central heating, the house is warm and cosy.

For people who intend to cook, the kichen got everything you could possibly need, from cutlery to bottle openers, frying pan and pot, plates and cups, all shining and clean, even the washing up liquid provided. There is a Tesco about 2-3 miles away, opens till 10 pm.

The neibours are very quiet and polite, you will really enjoy the great sorroundings provided by this house. it rained for 2 days, and even the umbrellas were provided too.

We will definetely visit again.

Thanks for the great work provided by the management team!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed for the weekend, arriving on the Friday evening. Arriving after 9pm was not an issue, which was great for a large group. The cottage was more than adequate for a group of 8 with 2 children, simple but beautifully decorated rooms with amble seating. Also a real working fireplace which made us feel right at home. The location was great as we were less than 10 minutes drive from Stow on the Wold. The closest pub in a 5min walk, take a torch as the path can be a little dark. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Troutbeck, great location, cosy cottage with all the amenities you could require to explore the Cotswolds. We would definitely stay here again

“Nice country retreat”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Communication with home owner prior to stay was excellent. All inquiries answered quickly. Had a difficult time initially locating house but a call to property manager got us there. She was also very helpful when we had questions and brought a fan to compensate for the ceiling fan that wasn't working. The house itself, though old style, was very clean and stocked with basics. Pictures of the rooms were deceiving in size but it was cozy enough for 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Beds and pillows felt great after a day's outing. The location was wonderful for driving around the other villages. This was a start to our England vacation...next was London.

“Great facilities with some lovely touches in a generous accommodation.”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Before our stay the owner kept in touch with useful local knowledge, requirements in the property and general helpful information.
The property was lovely; well proportioned for our group which included young children and a dog. Good bedroom to bathroom ratio and large living area with plenty of seating. The garden was very secure and we were lucky enough with the weather to sit outside for a BBQ in the evening.
The village is very peaceful and there is a public footpath about 5mins walk from the house that is safe for dogs to be off the lead.
