Without a doubt this is the best UK holiday cottage we have stayed at. The attention to detail from the fresh flowers, hamper and card has made this a perfect break.
Everything has been well thought out and all holidaying needs catered for.
The Bibury walk (described in the book at the cottage) was lovely. Our favourite walk was the circular river walk at Malmestbury. Haycock village is definitely worth a visit.
The food at the Fleece was delicious and the Crown was good at lunchtime.
