The place where the house is is a beautiful little village. May and Mark recommended other nearby places for us to tour and even gave us some things to eat the first night when we were late arriving. Very nice house cozy, warm and all very well furnished and highly recommended.

Mr & Mrs B Pennsylvania USA 14th - 21st October

May’s Cottage was the perfect place for our week in the Cotswolds. It was clean, warm, just the right size and May welcomed us graciously. We will definitely book it again as our base when traveling from the US to visit family and friends in the area.

Mr H  & Family UK 10th - 13th October

Wonderful stay at a well-placed, beautiful garden cottage! Relaxing, quiet break for a small family - would recommend!

Mr L  & Partner Reading UK 4th - 6th October

We stayed for two nights at May's cottage. Its well equipped, comfortable, warm and seriously clean! A great place to stay for a relaxing weekend or even longer. Will definitely be back!

Mr F  & Family Greece 28th - 30th September

We stayed for two nights at May's cottage and the whole hosting experience has been exceptional for our leisure trip to Cotswolds area. The cottage was sparkling clean, fully equipped and May provided more than the basics & extras somebody can think of. We had a quite warm welcome from the hosts and every detail within the house was obviously pre-planned and arranged, which made us feel like home. Still amazed by May's hosting and this visit set new high standards in our AirBnB requirements. We would definitely come back to stay, when we re-visit the area.

Mrs R & Family UK 24th - 28th September

May's directions to the cottage were easy to follow. The stone cottage is cosy, comfortable and quiet nestled in the garden and screened from the house, with easy access to the concrete parking area. It has comfy beds, a great shower, and a well equipped kitchen if you'd like to make a snack or three course meal. May provided a range of essential items that make it easy to settle in, ie coffee, tea, bread, milk, cheese, etc. We highly recommend May's place as a delightful retreat as it is tucked away, but yet nice and close to a range of attractions.

Mr & Mrs E France 17th - 24th September

Thankyou again for such a wonderful stay. Already looking forward to our next visit in December.

Mrs M & Family UK 9th - 12th September

May's Cottage is a little Haven of tranquility in the tiny village of Sopworth. Expect a lovely welcome. The Cottage is stylishly decorated and kitted out with all appliances. The garden is tranquil and pretty and I expect to return in the future.” We loved your cottage. Thanks for making our stay special. I loved your sense of style and design. The colours you chose and your paintings were perfect. Thanks also for the refreshments and toiletries you left for our use they were lovely touches. I will certainly recommend you and your cottage Raine.

Mr H & Friends UK 6th September - 8th September

May was a fantastic host! We were welcomed with fresh bread, cheese, biscuits and tea & coffee! When we discussed with May that we needed a taxi for a wedding she was very helpful in helping us find one. The cottage is set in a beautiful location and was spotlessly clean with all amenities you could ask for. Would definitely stay here again if visiting the wonderful Cotswolds!

Mr & Mrs H & Family UK 30th August - 1st September

Very clean and comfortable cottage. We were attending a wedding in Badminton and stayed for a couple of days. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful.” Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. The cottage was very comfortable and very well appointed for our wedding we attended. Very convenient for Tetbury and thanks so much for the welcome pack.

Mr & Mrs F & Family UK 23rd - 27th August

Stayed for 4 nights over the August bank holiday, cottage was meticulously clean and well equipped. It was also very well located for our needs and an incredibly peaceful area. We stayed with our 2 young daughters, May had a play house with toys in the garden which May welcomed our children to use which was very much appreciated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or stay hear again in the future.

Mr & Mrs W & Friend UK 21st - 23rd August

Quality property with quality fittings and some nice touches. Spotlessly clean. An Airbnb that truly earns it's cleaning fee! Be aware that the only way to the bathroom is to walk through both bedrooms. Fine for family or close friends. Top quality at reasonable price.

Mr & Mrs P & Family France 19th - 21st August

We really enjoyed the cottage, which is very pretty, clean and useful, located in a beautiful village where we can even meet horse-riders riding on the path just near the house. A very interesting place to discover and enjoy, between the city of Bath and the Cotswolds...

Mr & Mrs W & Friends Sheffield UK 16th - 18th August

Thank you for your hospitality. The cottage was perfect and the little extra touches were perfect, especially the drink in the fridge. Hopefully we will see you again.

A perfect little cottage. Four of us stayed for the weekend for an event at Badminton and we couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay. May had thought of everything from leaving tea and coffee to bread and cheese. Comfy beds, plenty of fluffy towels and a lovely shower were just what we needed after a long day running. Can’t recommend May’s Cottage enough.

Mr & Mrs S & Family West Sussex UK 14th - 16th August

Thank you for your hospitality and helpful tips during our stay. We had a great time in your beautiful cottage, and would certainly recommend it to others.

May’s Garden Cottage is a little haven of peace. Set in the beautiful little village of Sopworth, alongside the Wiltshire Way bridle path, it is perfect for exploring the surrounding countryside and villages. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed.

Mr & Mrs M-E & Family Spain 8th - 14th August

Thank you so much for this lovely stay one more time! This is like our second home here in The Cotswolds! We love your place, (beautiful &  clean and so convenient) and the region. A gorgeous English holiday in spite of  the rain. Thanks also for the guilty pleasures you always leave for us in the fridge!

The house was so beautiful and the garden in front was good. Especially the dryer was a great help. It is the perfect place to travel to Bath and the Cotswolds, and the host was really friendly. It is strongly recommended.

This is a beautiful cottage and the garden is breathtaking. Very cozy and had the best shower pressure I’ve ever had. The house is also exceptionally clean with great amenities.

Ms D & Friend UK  15th - 19th July

May’s Garden Cottage is a beautiful little cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds. My friend and I had a wonderful week, visiting the local attractions and just relaxing at the cottage. It is close by to both Bristol and Bath. All amenities you could need are provided, even shampoo and shower gel, and extra touches such as tea coffee and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch. May was a great host, treating us on arrival and was close by if we needed anything. I would not hesitate to re-book and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, lovely, comfortable cottage in the area. 

Louise and I would like to thank you for a wonderful week in your lovely cottage. Everything was so comfortable and relaxed and a real home away from home. We had a great time. Thank you.

Ms Y & Family UK  12th - 15th July

A lovely cottage within the garden of a private house in a sleepy Cotswold village. Bijou with all mod cons and your own area to relax within the beautiful garden.

Mr & Mrs H Singapore 25th June - 10th July

Thanks for a lovely stay. A great location, ideal for walkers and cotswolds explorers. Well equipped cottage with garden and parking.

Mr & Mrs L Weston-Super-Mare UK 15th - 17th June

You won’t find a better and kinder host like May. The cottage is spotless, everything you need is in the cottage. May and her hubby are very kind and friendly. But the garden is breath taking. If you are romantic like us, sit in the garden with vino it’s a wow. I truly loved everything about May's cottage, would love to stay there again. Just beautiful.

Mr & Mrs T Reading UK 13th - 15th June

We spent 2 nights in this lovely cottage. Very peaceful, set in the wonderful Cotswold countryside. Excellent facilities and we would love to stay again sometime soon.

Thank you very much May, we really enjoyed staying at your lovely cottage.

Miss D UK 11th - 13th June

Me and my brother really enjoyed our stay (despite the rain!) at your clean and beautifully presented cottage. The bread, cheese, tea, etc. you kindly provided was also very much appreciated.

May's cottage is very welcoming, clean and tidy and in a quiet area with plenty of parking space. A great place to stay!

Mr & Mrs J & Family India 7th - 10th June

Beautiful cottage in the middle of Sopworth on the southern part of Cotswold. Lovely host with a lot of local tips. May's cottage is wonderful and has all the amenities you'd expect in a modern home. Additionally she left us a welcome care package which helped us through our stay.

Mr B UK 4th -6th June

Exactly as it said on the tin

Mr & Mrs S & Family London UK 27th - 1st June 

We’ve had a wonderful time at May’s Cottage! Lovely home away from home, super convenient and clean, amazingly beautiful garden and so close of the many things to do. My kids especially enjoyed the Arboretum and for a rainy day Bristol’s science museum is great. Visit Bath, Cirencester and do enjoy the walks around the fields with sheep just from your doorstep.

Mr & Mrs B & Family London UK 24th - 27th May

May’s cottage is just perfect for a little getaway. May and Mark are friendly and were especially patient with our daughter who loved their fish pond! Cottage is right on a bridle path with beautiful fields as far as the eye can see. Welcome pack was a lovely touch too. Cottage was immaculately clean too. We will recommend to anyone we know visiting the area. Thank you.

Mr L & Friends Basingstoke UK 19th - 22nd May

We had a lovely stay, very beautiful cottage and lovely people. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Mrs E & Family Saskatchewan Canada 16th - 19th May

On check-in we loved it and immediately fell in love and asked for an additional night. Everything is so homely, comfy & cozy and May you are so awesome! Thanks for being part of our memorable trip. Thankyou so much for sharing your cottage with us. We truly enjoyed our stay here and seeing the beautiful Cotswolds area - one of our favourite places in England.

The yard (garden) has inspired us to try some English landscaping at home!

Well recommend your place and will always remember our time here. Thankyou again.*****

Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay! We had some beautiful walks to Badminton horse trials & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely return next year.

Ms P & Family Bury St Edmonds UK 23rd - 25th April

This cottage could not have been better for a couple and a young child. We were pleased with the small touches May and her husband provided (small books for our son, a small supply of food and snacks, a highchair and bib, etc.) The cottage was immaculate, in a quiet village, and close to some nice walks around the countryside. You are lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world; thanks for letting us enjoy it as well! We had a great stay!

Mr & Mrs N & Family Reading UK 20th - 22nd April
