“An excellent choice for a family Christmas”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Rose Cottage in the village of Oddington is a beautifully preserved and well-appointed house, with all the comforts our family of four could have wanted for our Christmas holiday, including a handy and well-equipped kitchen, a cozy sitting/dining room, good-sized bedrooms, modern bathroom -- and a superb fireplace! Advance communication from the owners was helpful and thorough and the welcome we received at the Horse and Groom pub around the corner and from our temporary neighbours made the whole experience very relaxing and positive. Thank you Rose Cottage!

“Charming cottage..”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a nice 4 days we had at the Rose Cottage in Oddington. The cottage and garden were lovely. We enjoyed our time there. The owners had a great list of things to do and we enjoyed dinner at the Horse and Groom..delicious and friendly owners and staff.
We would love to visit again.

“Couldn't be better.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I stayed a week in Rose Cottage, Upper Oddington, both of which are as charming as their names. The cottage was cozy and comfortable and had everything we might have wanted: all cooking and eating utensils, combined washer/dryer for clothes, a dishwasher, a good shower, comfortable bed plus a guest bedroom for our guests, television and sitting room. The bedroom windows look out on the other cottages of Rose Tree Walk, the gabled roofs of other village houses, trees and gardens. Unlike our nights in Los Angeles, those at Rose Cottage are so quiet and dark that we slept very soundly. The cottage couldn’t be more pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would happily have stayed longer and hope to return.

“Really cosy cottage, highly recommended.”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in this lovely cottage for a week at the end of April. We found it very quiet, comfortable and well equipped. The wood burning stove was the biggest and best we'd ever seen and it was a joy to watch so many birds feeding in the garden. Hope to return again one day.

“cosy, home from home!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just had a fantastic long weekend at Rose cottage, and what a lovely feel the place has. Huge fire with plenty of logs - which was greatly appreciated! only had a couple of niggles with the wifi not working and the garden not being entirely dog proof, with the gaps in the hedge. Had to keep my terrier on her lead, a larger dog would probably be ok though. Having said that, I still have to rate highly as I'd definitely recommend to others and I would love to return myself at some point... The photos really don't do the place justice, so much nicer in the flesh!!! loved it!!

Thank you for making time to post a review.
Jenny and I are delighted that you had such a good time at the cottage.

We also very much appreciate your feedback, and we’ve now fixed the ‘dog proofing’ in the garden.

I am sorry you didn’t call us for the Internet… Whatever the problem was, we would have solved it very easily. The wifi has worked without fail for years – we use it each time we’re at the cottage ourselves and we’ve never had any queries from any other guests. If you were to come back another time, please do not hesitate to ask for help.

Kindly,

Emmanuel
