LOVELY COTTAGE BUT NOT A 4 STAR”


I booked this cottage up as it had excellent reviews and the main thing it had was a heated pool. I was about to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family who I don't live near so it was going to be very special for me.
On arrival Beth the owner welcomed us and showed us around, my first impression was that it had loads of character but was not a 4 star and the furniture really wasn't of a high standard as it appeared to be in the photographs.
The kitchen was very well equipt with dishwasher etc and there was a lovely big dinning table for us all to sit around.
The lounge sofas were heavily stained not at all as nice as the photographs and very uncomfortable, however all of the bathrooms were excellent and the beds were extremely comfortable.
Now for the outside, the garden furniture really needed replacing as did the rusty Bar-b-q in fact you simply couldn't use the the barby at all it was so rusty, and the garden also needed some attention it was so over grown.
We had a problem of having no hot water on the Saturday evening which to be fair was promptly put right and we had no further problems with that, However on the sunday we had planned to spend the after noon by the pool.
We were told when we arrived that at the weekends the pool times were from 10am until 1pm but if we wanted to use the pool outside of this time then it wouldn't be a problem, this wasn't mentioned at all on the site I looked on!
Just after 1pm were were told to vacate the pool as they were having people coming to look around the gardens so we had to leave, this really upset me I had paid almost a thousand pounds for 3 nights and couldn't use the pool the grandchildren were upset as they had been so excited by having a pool to play in.
Beth repeated stated that it was on the website about the pool times but the site I was looking at it wasn't mentioned at all, it would appear this property is advertised on a few sites.
Beth did say that if her garden people went early we could go back in the pool but as they didn't go until gone 5 pm it was then too cold as even though it was supposed to be heated it only just took the chill off.
This could be a fabulous place to stay for a large party if they attended to the things I had mentioned and maybe realised that when you advertise that there is a pool, as paying guests they will want to use it during their stay and especially at weekends the three hours allocated is simply not long enough!
None of us felt very welcomed in fact we felt in the way!
we are not difficult people we just wanted family time together to celebrate my special birthday and use the facilities that I had paid for...

Management Response
20 Jun 2015
I am sorry that this guest felt that our cottage was not up to 4 star standard. We have only just been inspected by Visit Britain, who renewed our four star rating, but I will take on board the criticisms about the sofa covers and barbeque. We renew the sofas on a regular basis and will look into replacing them later this year. The barbeque will also be replaced. Overgrown is rather my style of gardening, but I will get my secateurs out. We send out details of the pool hours with all booking confirmations and we are happy for guests to use the pool outside those hours, but it is by arrangement only. On this particular day we had an Open Gardens Day in our village from 2pm to 6pm, and so there were a lot of visitors passing through the pool area all afternoon. We always do our very best to make guests feel welcome.

“More than we could have hoped for!”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Finding accomodation for 12 - from 2 to 64 years - is always difficult but Sherwood comfortably housed all of us. Each family had their own bedroom and bathroom (which we have never found before) and we had an amazing 40th birthday week away. The dining room was perfect for our surprise dinner and the hosts were fantastic at being so close for any queries or help but also for leaving us to our own company. We visited The Cat and Custard Pot regularly and felt so at home, children too. Having only visited the Cotswolds for day trips as its not too far away, we were surprised at how much there was to see on our doorstep. It was also a much needed relaxing break for us all and we are hoping to visit again for another family get together very soon. Thank you so much - missing you already.

Stayed for 3 nights with my extended family so we could visit Westonbirt Arboretum's Magical Night. The cottage was fantastic plenty of room and very well equipped. The pub down the road was a great find, very warm and friendly atmosphere. We hope to visit again in the future.

“Ideal hub for a country weekend with friends and family”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We were looking for a place in the country where we could get friends and family to drop in and visit over a long weekend. The location and amenities made this the ideal spot, with plenty of accommodation and, importantly, enough bathrooms to go around. The dining room can cope with 12 easily and there's a separate lounge for relaxing and long chats over a glass of wine or cups of coffee.
Having a dishwasher made entertaining easy - just as well as we had a full load after every meal. There's even a washer/dryer, which was handy to refresh our laundry for the rest of our trip. Dishwasher tabs and laundry detergent were to hand to make it even easier.
Our hosts were welcoming and friendly, and coped well with our various requests and queries, including provision of dog towels.
Shipton Moyne is a lovely, quiet spot that made a great starting point for early morning dog-walks over the local fields, as well as longer rambles and exploring the Cotswolds in general. The pub's a handy addition for pre-dinner drinks or for catering if you don't want to cook, although there's plenty of information on hand for advice on other local eateries.
Overall a wonderful spot that made the ideal venue for our weekend break.

“Superb facilities in a quiet peaceful haven”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

First class, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. Sherwood has 5 double bedrooms and 5 bathrooms which proved to be a real treat for our group of friends. The location is quiet and peaceful but you can easily access Tetbury and Malmsbury.
The kitchen is well equipped, beds comfortable , and everything clean and fresh.
We will be booking again!
