A lovely property with everything you could wish for.
The village is charming, peaceful and there are walks nearby. It is only a short drive to Oxford, if you want to visit this fascinating city with all its history. There are several pubs in the village, serving meals. Also a general store for things you may need. The welcome hamper was particularly good and we really enjoyed every item.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage with everything you could ask for.
This extremely comfortable and well laid out cottage which is a must stay if you are in the area and look forward to your welcome hamper which was pure luxury.

One of the nicest, well equipped and comfortable cottage we've ever stayed in. Four forty-something girls together for a weekend and we had a great time. Brilliant welcome hamper, lovely toiletries and a kitchen with everything you could wish for. Fab meal at The Plough- lots of fun, laughs and wine (obviously). Thank you!

The house was fabulous! Clean, tidy and really well equipped. There was everything we needed and more. The welcome hamper was gorgeous and full of goodies for our weekend stay. The house was in a perfect location, a couple of minutes walk to two amazing pubs and a lovely walk across the fields to Daylesford Farm. Check in and out was easy and the communication between the owner and Rural Retreats was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hose to anyone looking to stay in the area. Thank you.

We had a lovely time and the cottage was perfect for our family! We appreciated the hamper left for us as it was delicious and very considerate. We went on many long walks as, fortunately, the weather was superb, meaning that we could enjoy the Cotswolds.

A girls weekend away and we've had a fab time here at The Old Bakery. Great property, so well equipped & comfortable. Lovely hamper too! Probably too comfy because we can't say that we've done a lot other than catch up. Excellent light lunch in Chipping Campden - Huxley's with a roaring log fire. Off now to Daylesford Organics - more food! Thank you - we've had a great time.

After a disastrous journey which took 5 hours instead of 1, we have had a lovely two nights in this wonderful property. Thank you for all the lovely goodies which were great when we arrived late Friday evening. We ate in The Howard Arms at Ilmington which, although is a bit of a drive, was fab.

Thank you for the use of The Old Bakery which provided a perfect base for a fabulous weekend retreat. We've loved the village and enjoyed two different but wonderful nights out.

A beautiful cottage, in a beautiful setting. Was a perfect quiet retreat for a lovely family Christmas. Totally impressed with the cleanliness and we couldn't find anything more we would have wanted. Our recommendations for food:- The Ebrington Arms, Ebrington just outside Chipping Campden, the food was just brilliant. The service from Rural Retreats has been outstanding. Thank you. LD, Plymouth
