Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our previous guests have to say…

We would like to come again!

We have had a really nice stay in this cosy and comfortable cottage.  It is well thought out and well furnished.  We very much appreciated the little touches.

The village is great, if rather dark at night.  Unfortunately, we were not able to use the pub due to the holidays.  However, had a great date with family who live locally and used our National Trust membership to the full!

We would like to come again!

Lovely cottage with all you need for a marvelous, peaceful break.

Lovely cottage with all you need for a marvelous, peaceful break.  Very friendly area and Teddy the dog enjoyed his walks in the area.

A must is the Stag Head!  Treat yourself to a wonderful evening of extremely good food and hospitality.

Would definitely stay again.  The only downside is the time goes too quickly 🙁

Absolutely Fantastic

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. The location of the cottage provided the perfect backdrop for a “quiet escape” from the pressures of everyday life which, is exactly what we were looking for and yet only being within a short distance of all the “must see” spots that the Cotswolds has to offer. Broadway was a great spot for a wander around the shops and for some delicious breakfast in the local deli. Likewise, Sudeley Castle was also nearby for those that want to grab a history fix during their visit!  All of these places of interest were only a short drive from Lorien. The cottage itself was beautifully finished to the highest standard and yet still retained its character and feel of “homeliness”. The bed linen, bathroom towels and robes were all an extra special touch of luxury and fun touches like the pig kitchen roll holder were an added bonus!! The mod cons in the kitchen were fantastic and it was a treat to have speciality coffees or hot chocolate to hand for the chilly evenings. We were also impressed with the gluten free bread which was provided on our arrival in the welcome pack – we’ve never had this before and its normally something I miss out on. Small touches like this make all the difference! Talking of chilly evenings, the log burner in the lounge was fabulous! Although we only lit it briefly, it really added to the ambience of the property and has made me want to go back for Christmas to see it in all its glory – Lorien would be a fantastic place to stay over the festive period!!! Finally, it’s worth mentioning the garden which reminded me of a “secret garden”. Wandering up to the end to say good morning or good evening to the cows was great and, again, the garden absolutely lends itself to long summer evening. Really – a cottage for all seasons! We can’t wait to go back.

It’s so lovely and homely

My mum and I had a lovely time here at the cottage. It’s so lovely and homely. The beds are extremely warm and cosy. Also, the cottage is very stylish and has a great design. The shower is the perfect temperature, meaning that I could stay in there all day. I would love to come back to this house one day!

An all-round enjoyable break

We had a lovely relaxing week here. We thought the cottage was really attractive and comfortable and loved sitting in the garden in the late afternoon sun/ It’s a great location for visiting local national trust properties – Itidcote was delightful and Stratford. Sunday lunch in the local pub was good too – an all-round enjoyable break.

Beautiful Hideaway

What a beautiful hideaway here in the Cotswolds. We really enjoyed our 3 day escape from the busyness of the city. The cottage felt so homely and warm, especially after a glass of prosecco and a game of scrabble.

We’ll be back again.

A wonderful weekend

This is a beautiful, cosy and welcoming cottage in the most peaceful of settings.

A torch is most certainly needed if you are venturing out on foot at night, but a visit to ‘The Stag’ in the village is well worth it – yet another warm welcome and very good food!

A wonderful weekend.

Perfect Location

What a lovely place to stay and a perfect location for discovering the Cotswolds. Lorien Cottage offers every facility you could possibly need and was beautifully decorated and well equipped.

I don’t think I’ve ever slept so well….. We loved the tranquil location and yet it’s still convenient to local facilities. We will definitely return.

Thank you.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the owners & housekeepers for this wonderful little magical cottage! The decor and cosiness is extremely high quality & the extra touches (Tea/Coffee/Body Wash etc) really show you go the extra mile to make people feel welcome.

Long Weekend Away

Had a long weekend away for my husband’s birthday and we definitely were not disappointed! We loved the tranquil setting and felt relaxed in this idyllic cottage. We would recommend visiting Tithe Barn in Swalcliffe if you like a bit of history.

We can’t wait to return for another stay!

Comfortable base for our family stay in the cotswolds

The cottage was exactly as described, It was very useful having two bathrooms so we could all get ready in the mornings. It was perfect for a multi generational trip, We had comfortable rooms for us our two sons, daughter in law and grand-daughter. It was handy to be able to park 2 of our three cars on the drive as we had travelled from three separate directions for our week-end get together. I would definitely do it again.
