“I loved staying at the studio flat, very stylish decoration, convenient design, very clean , the bathroom was modern and clean too. I have a bad back so was worried about being able to sleep on the bed, I was so pleasantly surprised the bed was super comfy, I stayed 4 nights and had a peaceful sleep every night. I am not the worlds best driver so had trouble getting my car in and out of the carpark , They was always someone to help me get my car out which was very comforting. I had booked a massage on arrival which was lovely after a long drive , it was so good I fell asleep. Vittoria was a very good host I felt looked after hoping to return again later in the year.”
Our beautiful apartment is surrounded by stunning countryside - just waiting to be walked or cycled. It comfortably fits two, has a large kitchen, cosy living area plus bathroom. Outside is a sunny garden area. Dogs are welcome.
“Lovely apartment, with all the bits you need to keep you cosy. Absolutely lovely quiet tranquil stay and in a great location close to Stroud and other places not far away. Deborah gave us great directions to get us to the apartment and tips on places nearby. Highly recommend.”
Hope Cottage is cosy, quirky and full of character (lots of exposed stone walls and original beams, plus a woodburner) but with all mod cons. It sits in its own terrace/garden in this pretty South Cotswolds village. There are wonderful views, and it's the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. A true home from home, with privacy and seclusion (no owners on site), a great local pub and walks in all directions.
“I wanted to experience the English countryside, and this was a lovely choice. I love that the cottage was built in the 1750's, and Sarah has done an amazing job maintaining the original elements of the home, while implementing modern touches. You basically have the charm and romance of the historic aspects of the house, while still having modern comforts. Sarah is soooo sweet and welcoming; tea, milk and cookies in the cupboard on arrival. I will forever think of her as the "Guest-whisperer" host because every question you could imagine, is in a notebook in the house. I felt like Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum with his instruction-letter; the minute I had a question, it was the next paragraph in the book. Brilliant! The only thing I was really vying for, was a dish rack, but everything else was quite comfortable. I know I saw that someone else had mentioned a shortage on mugs- there are plenty now! We really had everything we needed for the week. The bed is quite firm, but if you prefer a softer bed, the single in the upstairs loft is heavenly. We loooooved the views- loved working from the picture window, overlooking the same views they had 100's of years ago. Magic. The drive: Sarah provided excellent, very detailed directions via AirBnb message. Coming back from the grocery store, I couldn't get the AirBnb app to load and had to use GPS- omg the narrow paths GPS has you take is crazy! By all means, snap a pic of her directions and keep them on your phone in case you can't access the app- do NOT use GPS or you'll find yourself with 2 inches of space on either side of your car between those beautiful old stone walls. There is a lovely little fire stove- if you bring wood with you, make sure it's tiny. Sarah is kind enough to leave you a day or two worth to get you started and she will bring you more for $5 (I recommend this, so you know you have the right size.) We did see a few "rolley pollies" (as kids call them in the US) in the house- my son loved this and they didn't bother me, but do know you might have these little roommates :) All in all, this was a lovely experience. My son was in heaven with the loft area, and the garden. There are lovely walking paths throughout the village hillside, between the houses etc. The location was surprisingly great as well- easy drive or walk to anything we needed or wanted to see. Thank you Sarah!”
