Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Dog friendly property
Alex was fantastic at communication, and very flexible with changing Coronavirus guidance. The property was really well equipped, you really don’t need to take anything with you except food! On arrival gin and tonic was very welcome! The outdoor space was invaluable, and we enjoyed our breakfast and teas out there. Tewkesbury is a lovely town, plenty to see and do nearby. There is a car park nearby where you can park your car, free after 5:30pm and on sundays, we didn’t struggle to get a space. The only downside for me is that the condition of the property was reflective of the fact you could take dogs to stay.

Great location, cosy cottage!
Stayed here for the weekend as a party of 4 and it was brilliant, Greeted on arrival with a few bits like breakfast items, bottle of gin and tonics which I thought were great touches the cottage itself has everything that you amenities you could need for a weekend stay, and their handbook is full of handy tips and info on what’s available to you locally. The bed was comfy, stocked up with plenty of towels as we’d forgotten ours, there’s showers upstairs and downstairs to make it easier when everyone’s getting ready at the same time. Fantastic location right on the high street, wasn’t too noisy either given it was on a busy high street. Couldn’t recommend this cottage highly enough and would 100% stay here again in the future!

Lovely pet friendly cottage
The Cresent is a lovely cottage, and a fantastic location in Tewkesbury for the Abbey and restaurants. Alex had the log burner roaring for when we arrived which was very welcoming. We had a fabulous weekend and only regret was that we did not stay longer.

The perfect retreat for exploring Twekesbury
We really enjoyed our few days at Crescent Cottage, perfect location for exploring Tewkesbury. A very welcome gift of the household basics meant that I could brew up as soon as I arrived, a nice touch! Clean accommodation throughout, traditionally decorated and the addition of the snug was a most welcome find, somewhere the kids could relax whilst I chilled myself in the living room with some peace and quiet.

Lovely house which is cosy and comfortable in a lovely location which provides a great place to discover the Cotswolds.
Tewkesbury is a lovely town with a beautiful Abbey and lots of walks, open spaces, shops and interesting things to see and visit. We enjoyed some of great restaurants and coffee shops. It is also ideally located for discovering the Cotswolds and other locations. There was far too much to see and do in the week we had. Crescent Cottage is centrally located, just a short walk from all the main attractions in Tewkesbury. The house itself is clean, tidy and very cosy. In addition to the lounge there is a lovely dining room, well equipped kitchen and snug downstairs. We enjoyed coming back to enjoy the house each evening at the end of lovely days exploring. The three bedrooms are comfortable and cosy. There is a balcony off one of the bedrooms which has a great view of the Abbey. We enjoyed using the balcony to grab some fresh air and to relax, even in February. The owners provided great information about the house and everything was as described. They live locally so are on hand, if needed. My partner and I took both sets of parents for a weeks holiday. We all thoroughly enjoyed staying at Crescent Cottage and we are already talking about returning soon.

Great cottage
We had a great stay in this cosy and lovely cottage. Its perfectly located in this lovely little town and in walking distance for shops, pubs and so on. Furthermore Its just next to the lovely abbey of Tewkesbury. The beds were all very comfy:-) The location is great to discover the region. The communication with the owner was perfect and the welcome in the cottage with milk, butter, eggs, toast and a bottle of wine was just great. Not to mention the chocolate easter eggs, much appriciated by our 2 children:-) we would surely book this cottage again If ever we come back to the region.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location
A roomy and well maintained cottage with ample space for 8 guests. Cosy lounge, family dining room, well equipped kitchen and a useful snug with it's own en-suite - ideal for kids to chill out in. One bedroom has a garden terrace which would be lovely in warmer weather. The property is right in the heart of town so very little walking even for elderly guests and other towns and villages are all close by in a car. Highly recommended.

Great cottage
I stayed here with my wife and two children, and Crescent Cottage was a great base for us - plenty of room and everything we needed to self-cater in comfort!
