The Perfect Country Retreat
My Partner and I have actually stayed here on two occasions, having enjoyed our first visit so much it seemed impossible not to return! The location is fantastic, with picturesque running/walking routes and numerous pubs, gastropubs and restaurants all within a short distance. Whilst the time we visited with a car felt more convenient, we were equally able to enjoy the weekend when we relied upon the train from London and local taxis. The first time we visited was at the beginning of December, and the plethora of independent shops in Broadway (a nearby village) coupled with Daylesford, made for the perfect Christmas shopping offering. The cosiness of the living room with the large sofas and wood burning stove meant the evenings were spent out of the cold, playing board games with a glass of wine in front of the fire. The second time was in the Spring and we enjoyed the long walks, beautiful surroundings and drinks on the patio. Within the property itself, you can tell every detail has been thought of and designed specifically to create the perfect holiday home, from the expansive, open plan kitchen with the large farmhouse kitchen all the way down to the little details of high quality linens and toiletries. It is my favourite holiday home in the UK and one we would certainly love to return to.

A truly wonderful home, location and stay.
We have stayed twice at Orchard House, we love it and are keen to continue returning. For us it's been a slice of peacefulness away from London life. It combines home comforts, the charm and cosiness of a Cotswold village with plenty of options for country pursuits. The house is wonderful - done up to a very high standard with a cosy living room, very comfortable bedrooms and a spacious and really well designed kitchen/ dinning area. Lots of lovely little touches - White Company soaps, lovely linen and a fab coffee machine. Great pubs within walking distance inc fantastic gastropub (the Fox). Plenty of walks and beautiful villages all very close and loads more options within a short drive. Perfect for a quiet relaxing weekend or an active outdoors week.

Sizeable peaceful holiday home
My wife and I spent a weekend here with friends and enjoyed every moment. The house itself is spacious, comfortable, and extremely well outfitted. The village has such tranquil walks and a great selection of high-end gastropubs and restaurants (the Kingham Plough is exceptional!) that you're spoilt for things to do. Can't recommend it enough.

Beautiful Countryside Retreat
My husband and I have stayed at Orchard House twice in the last year. It is such a beautifully designed and furnished home, with every attention to detail a holiday home should have! The rooms are spacious and the beds exceptionally comfy!! We had the best nights sleep in years in the master bedroom. The kitchen and living areas are very large but still retain a homely feel throughout. Though we have visited in November and in March, the house is so perfectly located that we didn?t need sunny weather every day to enjoy ourselves. We can walk to local pubs and it?s only a short drive to many picturesque villages and stores. Now we have found Orchard House, we won?t be renting anywhere else in the Cotswolds!! In fact, we think it?s the best holiday home we have ever stayed in.

Beautifully kept cottage in a picturesque setting
We stayed for a weekend with friends and had such a lovely time in this well kept and spotlessly clean three bed cottage. The kitchen was roomy and perfect for cooking a meal for our group at the big farmhouse style wooden table; we had some lovely lunches in the sun on the patio too. We also walked to nearby pubs for dinner and did some fantastic (if a little hilly!) cycles around the local area. We even found a wild swimming spot. Couldn?t recommend it more for a countryside getaway, and can?t wait to go back later this year.
