The booking was smooth and trouble free; each and every member of staff I have ever spoken to couldn't be more helpful. The housekeeping staff also absolutely helpful, cheerful and friendly. It really adds to the whole enjoyable experience of using Rural Retreats.
The cottage was absolutely tip top quality and absolute luxury. It's an enormous cottage, absolutely spotlessly clean. Really absolutely everything was perfect down to the sweet smelling sheets and fluffy plump pillows - I have never slept better!
The housekeeping staff are absolutely first class. We had the opportunity to meet some of the team when we left the cottage on the last day. They were absolutely lovely. Bright, friendly and happy people. They seemed to be genuinely interested in our stay, hoping we had enjoyed ourselves. Thankyou ladies!
Thankyou for an all round marvellous experience Rural Retreats!

A beautiful cottage, very well equipped, perfect for a large group celebration. The bedrooms are very big with lovely bathrooms. The property was very clean.
The weather had changed and I did wonder if being an old house it would be cold, but the central heating (and water) was very efficient. Also 2 fires made up ready to use. The welcome hamper was exceptional especially as it contained local produce. A fabulous house in a lovely village, able to walk out into countryside. We all loved it. Thank you.

The 14 of us (aged 11-79) have enjoyed a spectacular few days in this vast, luxurious farmhouse - the huge kitchen & dining room & 2 lounges, not to mention the spacious, beautifully equipped bedrooms. And we all played 4 hours in the games room.

We have had a great time here at Oat Hill farmhouse. Lots of great hiding spaces for hide and seek. The games room full of fun hours of pool, table tennis and table football. Had a great time that I will never forget.

A family gathering to celebrate Grandads 80th birthday. A wonderful time was had by all. The large table enabled us all to be seen & heard. Pool and table tennis were real favourites with competition rife. Cotswold country is brilliant with much to do Sudeley Hall was great and Snowshill Manor brilliant. So many walks meant the energetic could savour the beautiful countryside. Local pub proves a magnet for some. Everybody enjoyed the house, the space was ideal for people to hide if they wished or gather together, often noisily.

I just wanted to say on behalf of my family and I, that we had a wonderful week at Oathill Farmhouse over the Christmas period. The house has been beautifully restored/decorated and the sleeping accommodation is perfect for a large family. There was always plenty of hot water even though all 14 of us generally showered every morning. Having two dishwashers over Christmas was also an absolute godsend and made the catering for large numbers much easier to cope with. In addition the added touch of the beautiful hamper and all the essentials in the fridge, including the not so essential sparkling wine, was much appreciated The games room was much appreciated by the young and the old alike and the table tennis was used frequently.

Oat Hill Farmhouse is an ideal venue for a family celebration - a 40th, 50th and 9th Birthday. A perfect house for chilling, catching up, entertaining as a big group- especially for playing hide and seek! We all loved our luxurious bathrooms, the kitchen area as a central area to congregate and the lounge to quietly chill. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this wonderful place. The F Family - UK
