The view from the cottage was spectacular, which was why I chose it. The deck outside was lovely and we ate all our meals outside. I would love to return to this cottage.
Mrs Doyle

Liked the warmth and comfort of the property, it was great for accommodating our family of five.
Mrs Benton

Glen View Cottage is without doubt excellent, warm and very comfortable accommodation with plenty of room and bathrooms for all. We stayed with friends plus two dogs to have few days r and r together with attending a family funeral. It's a cottage that gives you a hug - whatever. And, a great place to explore local towns and villages. Although I/we could not give this cottage anymore than a ten out of ten - we would draw your attention to where it is situated. You have to cross a track to get to the property, which we now understand belongs to The National Trust. It is a short approach - however we are talking November- found wet and very slippery. Very tricky if u don't own a 4 by 4 vehicle. We would have brought readers attention to this anyway - but to say - yesterday this track caused us to have a accident yesterday.. We okay, but car will cost us more than a few pounds to look pretty again. So perhaps what I am saying is, lovely cottage shame about the approach. Would we visit again, sorry to say , no.

The cottage was beautifully presented and in a stunning location. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly, and there is so much to see in this lovely part of the Cotswolds. The views from the garden were brilliant and in two minutes and a few steps you could be on The Common.
Mrs Gaskell

The cottage was larger and better laid out than the photos indicated. The location on the common and the views were fantastic.
