“Delightful but quirky cottage.”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014
person found this review helpful

We received a warm welcome from the housekeeper, who greeted us at the cottage with a tea tray and cakes. Finding a parking space on the Saturday afternoon was a bit of a struggle but it was much easier during the week. The weather was lovely so we were able to take advantage of the beautiful garden. The cottage is very spacious and is full of character but I feel it needs some TLC. The open fire was lovely and the logs supplied were very much appreciated. The cottage was nice and clean and there was plenty of cutlery, crockery etc. We did, however, have problems with the cooker and found that the only part of it which worked efficiently was the oven. The cottage benefited from central heating, so it was lovely and warm - except for the small bedroom, which didn't have any heating at all !! We were provided with plenty of towels and although nothing actually matched (colour wise) they were big and fluffy and smelt lovely. The main irritation was the creaking floors upstairs - it would make a huge difference if the floorboards were nailed down and would not detract from the character of the cottage. We had a brilliant time playing the games which were provided - especially scrabble. We also appreciated the little extras i.e. Carex hand soap in both the kitchen and bathroom, and washing up liquid and clothes etc.
The village of Northleach is absolutely beautiful - we fell in love with it. A visit to the church is a must - so much history. Lots of lovely walks in the area. We went to Woodstock for the day (approximately 50 minute drive) to Blenheim Palace, which was wonderful. The Sherbourne Arms is where we had our Sunday carvery and it was very nice and reasonably priced.
We will definitely be going back to Bank Cottage, hopefully later in the year.
