Guest reviews

Wonderful cottage in a great location. Everything was perfectly organised and clean. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Keytes cottage to our friends and family!

Keytes Cottage couldn't have been a better jumping off point for exploring the Cotswolds. The beautiful garden in the back was absolute paradise and rivaled many of the gardens we paid to see elsewhere in our travels! The hamper of food left for us was filled with high quality, locally sourced Items and was truly impressive. We even had wine, cake and fresh cut flowers! Beds were comfortable, towels were fluffy and we loved the whimsical and cottagey decor. Some people may not like the slanted wall above the tub and the lack of a proper stand up shower, but we didn't mind it. Parking is for one car and is very tight, but we got used to that as well because the cottage was just so perfect in every other way! Tranquil, clean, comfortable, up to date and well equipped in every way. We are so glad we chose this perfect cottage for our week in the Cotswolds!

Nice and comfy, also a very clean cottage. Quality of the hamper is excellent (and we have seen a few!). Yes book at The Horse & Groom - not just good quality food but also good value. For a good walk/muddy run - pick up the signs for Heart of England way and head South or North!

We have had a very relaxing and enjoyable week in this cosy cottage. Very comfortable and very well equipped. Also the location was excellent for exploring the green. Can recommend to those in The Horse & Groom (but book early!).

We've so enjoyed a mini-break. The cottage is lovely - we did a super walk round the fields - and to the pub! Thanks, we feel re-charged.

Thank you so much. We enjoyed every moment at Keytes Cottage and in the village - The Church, the walks and The Horse & Groom. We are leaving with hearts full of wonderful memories and hope to return some day. God bless you and all who enter here.

A lovely little cottage with everything we needed. Having never stayed with Rural Retreats before we will be using them again in future; the welcome hamper and all inclusive linens and toiletries was a bonus. Perfectly placed cottage.

We've stayed in many Rural Retreats cottages & this is one of the best. It's been a pleasure to stay in such well appointed & comfortable accommodation, and what a beautiful garden & picture perfect surroundings! Autumn in the Cotswolds - I only wish we could have stayed longer.

What can one say? Keytes cottage, a Rural Retreats gem, is simply perfect in every way. Open the door and you feel at home straight away, from the welcome hamper full of delicious local goodies, comfort in every room and a "chocolate box" cottage garden to create a haven of tranquility. So many places to visit - beautiful Bourton House gardens, Sudeley Castle, Chalecote Park House & Hidcote Gardens... it's no good, we will just have to come back next year!

A lovely cottage and superb, peaceful garden! Loved the goodies that were supplied in the hamper. Everything we needed for our stay was here. Thoroughly enjoyed the Cotswolds - quaint villages and rolling green fields. A welcome break after the crowds in London! Thank you.

A perfect 'chocolate box' cottage in a beautiful part of The Cotswolds. We found some great walks so the car hardly got used! Can recommend the walk to Blockley. We had a tasty meal at The Horse & Groom but we're glad we'd booked. It was packed out on a Monday lunch time! A final comment - the welcome hamper was the best we've ever had! Thank you Rural Retreats.
