“Great weekend at Lavender Cottage”
Reviewed 17 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We booked this Cottage having searched for a self-catering cottage for a romantic break near the Cotswolds. Barry the owner was very easy to deal with and we arrived at this high spec cottage. It is finished to a very high standard and is warm and cosy.

Barry helpfully recommended some great places to eat nearby and we had so much to do visiting the nearby attractions that we ran out of time to visit the pub in the village near the Cottage. So, we are coming back in the summer!

The Cottage is finished to a high standard, the bed very comfortable, the cooking facilities great, it even has a dishwasher. There is TV and wireless access for your Iphone or laptop. The bathroom is great too. The whole cottage has been well planned to make effective use of the space and it is set in a quiet location in a very pretty village.

It was a great weekend and we visited various Cotswolds villages, some stately homes, the cinema in Banbury, and had some great meals out. All in all a good stay.

Thanks Barry, see you in the summer.

“Clean, Quiet and Comfortable”
Reviewed 8 March 2012 for a stay in August 2011

This is a "cut & paste" from my review of the Honeysuckle Cottage as we rented both for our stay.

It's been a few months since our visit, but my review is better late than never, and besides, it is well deserved by the proprietor.

We booked both of these cozy little cottages for a five night stay while we were travelling between Banbury and Stratford upon Avon for a wedding and to visit with family,

From the moment we booked with Barry he was very helpful in making sure we would be comfortable and know our way to the cottages. He even offered to meet us in town which was quite nice as coming in from Canada with two teens on a plane then driving for a few hours north from the airport on the wrong side of the road was quite draining!

We were anxious to catch up with family though, so we still went out to the local pub that night., but not for too long :)

Needless to say we were wiped in the morning, so waking up to a basket of fresh croissants, cheese, butter, jam and orange juice was amazing.

During our stay Barry made us feel very welcome and was always helpful. Just a few highlights of what our wonderful host did for us (and this was just in five days);
Barry offered to pick us up groceries as he knew we were tired; he also drove into Banbury just so we could follow him to the shopping district; my wife didn't have time to have her dress for the wedding altered before we left, and he knew just the place to send us; at the last minute before we left Canada we found out that my wife's sister was stuck for a place to stay so Barry offered her a room in his home (it's not typical for him to let it, but it seems to be in his nature to go out of his way to be helpful); he offered to take my wife’s sister to the train station when she wanted to tour Oxford...I think you get the picture, Barry is a proprietor, a host, a concierge, and a friend all rolled into one.

I would absolutely go back. The location in great for venturing many places, the cottages are fabulous and Barry is wonderful. He is a fond memory of our vacation
