A wonderful visit to Blockley, we enjoyed walking along the many footpaths.
Cozy cottage and lovely stream- wish we could bring the smells and sounds back to the states.
Blockley is a gem.

It was a beautiful cottage and we had a lovely time. Although watch out for the low beams and narrow staircase. The garden was lovely and everything about it. The house was very quaint.

Very thoughtful and well equipped cottage. Hamper delicious. Gardeners Arms in Alderton - very good for vegan food and generally. Power cut Saturday night following tree falling down. Very dark and no candles or torch.

So much to do so little time! Hidcote and Batsford Arboretum are a joy! The latter in walking distance assuming you haven't fallen down the stairs. A truly lovely place.

We came for a wedding in Moreton. One of the party was the cake decorator so the kitchen was fully utilised and operational at 6am. Well stocked and even greaseproof paper. Had a fantastic stay.

We have been coming to Beckwood for so long that we fondly recall the days when it was lit only by gas lamps, we washed both crockery and ourselves in the brook, "borrowed" a lamb from the adjacent field and had one's butler light a fire in the grate to prepare supper. Parking the carriage and stabling the horses was just as much a challenge then as car parking now can be.
(how we wish we'd been able to visit in it's infancy when simply "Becksapling)
How much has changed and largely for the better. True, a decent mobile phone signal is a challenge, yet some consider that a blessing. This new fangled wi-fi stuff is quite sufficient for keeping in touch with family, one's stockbroker, the staff and the wider world.
Enjoy Beckwood's many virtues, it's quaintness, quirkiness and leave the 21st century behind just a little.
L S, Somerset.

We have had an absolutely wonderful time here in the Cotswolds - it has been everything that we hoped for! We have drunk a lot of wine, eaten a lot of food & enjoyed great walks and roaring fires. It has been an excellent pick me up for 4 tired new doctors & we are looking forward to the next time that we can do something similar. Thank you for all your wonderful hospitality & thoughtful touches. We shall certainly be using Rural Retreats again!

What a wonderful, quirky cottage. The large bedroom is delicious and the sound of the brook with the windows open is SO soothing. Colours are beginning to change and the views from the window are so lovely. There's nothing like Blockley in the US - I just want to wrap it up and take it home with me! Welcome hamper was chockfull of goodies -thank you! Thanks for a lovely visit.

We had a wonderful weekend in Blockley. Loved the village and the Old Silk Mill is especially welcoming. We would return and the Great Western Arms was fabulous probably the friendliest pub in the Cotswolds we have ever stumbled across. AG, Hertfordshire

Our first return to Beckwood since our honeymoon in 1998, and we loved every minute. Charming and quirky a great place for a romantic break. Blockley is lovely, there are lovely walks from the front door. Further afield we walked around Moreton, Stow and Chipping Campden - all nice but Stow the best for shops and pubs. Must recommend the 'Horse and Groom' at Bourton on the Hill (5 minutes by car), absolutely fabulous food, but book as it can get busy. Lovely place, outstanding food, great service as well. Thanks for a great break, look forward to coming back in the summer or autumn so we can make use of the lovely garden. RS, Leicestershire

An amazing place to celebrate my 50th birthday. Really loved the cottage - especially the snowdrops and the bullfinch in the tree just outside the window. A great place to chill with tea and cake in front of a roaring fire. Enjoyed a really relaxing weekend - beautiful cottage in a beautiful village. Love the rope stair handrail!

We've had a lovely relaxing weekend. Had a good lunch at the Great Western Arms, then enjoyed the cottage and the contents of the wonderful welcome hamper, in front of the fire. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we had everything we needed here and more. Highly recommend Warwick Castle if you have children.

Great hamper. Fab cottage. Boys loved paddling in the stream, feeding the sheep and being 'country' boys. Barely moved out of the cottage, it was so lovely. Friendly people in the shop. Wifi helped pre-teens gadgets and homework. Brilliantly equipped kitchen helped with catering. The D's, Surrey

We felt welcome at once. After a longer journey than expected from London we arrived to a warm house, a fire ready to be lit and a wonderful welcome basket. The owners clearly put a lot of love and care into this cottage. We return rested and content. YH, London
