Poppy's Cottage is delightful, comfortable and well equipped. The location is lovely and there is nothing you could want for.
The welcome hamper was the best we have ever had.
All the rooms are comfortable and well appointed.
We took our German friends there for a week and they fell in love with Poppey's Cottage and the and the surrounding area as did we.

We have stayed in many rental cottages during the last 30+ years. This one is one of the best ones we have ever stayed in. The high quality furnishings and wonderfully stocked kitchen made it home from home. The welcome hamper was delicious and the beautiful bunch of roses was the finishing touch. It is no wonder that everyone loves it so much.

Without a doubt this is the best UK holiday cottage we have stayed at. The attention to detail from the fresh flowers, hamper and card has made this a perfect break.
Everything has been well thought out and all holidaying needs catered for.
The Bibury walk (described in the book at the cottage) was lovely. Our favourite walk was the circular river walk at Malmestbury. Haycock village is definitely worth a visit.
The food at the Fleece was delicious and the Crown was good at lunchtime.
