Beautiful cottage on the village green.
Extremely comfortable and well equipped.
Lovely outside area at the back of the cottage.
Very generous welcome hamper. Great to have 2 bathrooms with walk in showers and a cloakroom.
Good food at the pub, 2 minute down across the village green.
So much to do and see in this area, needed more days!!

Good morning Mr Dosman

Thank you for your email, I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing some maintenance issues whilst you are staying at Duckling Cottage. Unfortunately, I do not have a mobile number for you so am unable to call you to discuss in more detail.

I am surprised to hear that both extractor fans are not working, I am aware that there are extractor fan switches on the wall for each property but if these are not working it may be that a fuse has tripped.

The heating is on a night storage system where the heat stores overnight and therefore should be warm during the day.

We will arrange for a maintenance person to schedule the works as soon as possible and thank you for bringing these to our attention.

I hope you have an enjoyable stay at Duckling Cottage.

Kind regards

Dear sir or madam.
Firstly, thank you very much for the lovely flowers and delightful selection of high quality foods.
There are some maintenance issues that need to be brought to your attention.
1. See the photo of the fridge. The two shelves are broken. When we were loading the fridge last evening the two shelves collapsed. These were certainly broken prior and pieced together and put in place waiting for a new load to be placed there.
2. See the toilet seat from the the twin bed bathroom. The pins are easily enough put back but last only a few "sits" and out they come. This is irritating when occurring in the middle of the night and the seat floats all over. This would appear to be an old problem.
3. The heater in the main bedroom. It blows but does not heat.
4. The "extractor" fans in each bathroom do not work. This is really a "FYI" item.
Best wishes.

This house has all the amenities that you will need during the stay. The town is not far to drive, 10-15 minutes to Stow, Bourton-On-Water, will definitely return to this cottage.

A lovely holiday in a fantastic cottage. Children loved the swings, see-saw and ice cream hut opposite. Adam Henson's Farm Park and Cotswold Wildlife Park are great days out with the family.

Our 2nd stay here and just as lovely! A great week even the rain didn't spoil it. Full of family fun. A complete home from home.

Just a couple of nights away with the children for my husbands 40th. Such a lovely place, we really didn't want to leave. Great hamper thanks. This place is a real gem. Pub opposite too.

Delightful cottage, fantastic hamper. Super area. Slight downside - bed very hard and perhaps needs replacing. All in all superb accommodation.

Well equipped, lovely cottage. TV in bedrooms would be appreciated, most have such. Cosy, warm clean and modern. Needs shelves in bathrooms for towels. Thanks very much.

A beautiful cottage which we fell in love with. Really well equipped. Perfect for getting around the Cotswolds. We will be back.
