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 M Canterbury New Zealand 1st - 4th June

Absolutely spot on - one of the best we have stayed in - loved it... We have re-read the reviews and totally agree with all the positive comments of which there are many. You won’t be disappointed. Go for it...

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

Can highly recommend Mays cottage, beautifull area, we have enjoyed the nature and all the public footpaths so nearby.

Thanks again, it was great to be in your wonderful cottage.

Mr & Mrs P & Family UK 20th- 23rd February

May's Garden cottage was lovely and comfortable. We could adjust the room temperatures as we wished, and the shower was great. The kitchen and cooking facilities were perfect and we were able to make a nice meal after long days out. There was plenty of room for the kids too. The nights were very peaceful and mornings were lovely, looking out into their beautiful garden. We would definitely recommend this lovely cottage. We hope to be able to make another trip sometime in the future too.

Mr & Mrs W & Family Handforth UK 17th- 19th February

Mrs F & Family Frankfurt Germany UK 13th- 17th February

May’s cottage house is really nice for us to explore the Cotswolds and we will definitely be back! This place has everything you need and more! you can enjoy this place for a long weekend, it’s real English countryside and the surrounding is beautiful - or you can drive around and check out the entire area - we covered Bath, Bristol and all the way to Cardiff 👍 And we appreciated everything May prepared for us, like the welcoming note, leaving the heating for us on our first night of arrival, all the details in the house and the fresh flowers you picked from the garden.

Mrs T & Family Derby UK 7th- 9th February

This is a lovely cottage which easily accommodates four adults, and it has all the necessary amenities for a great holiday - rain or sunshine (books, films and board games). Mrs. May and Mr. Mark were very kind, helpful and welcoming, and made the place feel like a home away from home. We look forward to staying there again.

Miss P & Partner UK 25th - 27th January

My partner and I have just returned from a two night stay at Garden Cottage with our ten week old daughter. Everything was absolutely perfect - the cottage is a home away from home, packed with personal touches which make it a cut above your standard holiday cottage. We really appreciated the baby bouncing chair, an unexpected bonus. The location is great, plenty of nice pubs and walks nearby. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

Miss D & Partner Southampton UK 13th December - 4th January

A really great find! Beautiful cottage with lovely furnishings and everything you will ever need and more. The cottage is set in a small village and has some beautiful surroundings and garden.

Thank you for letting us stay at Garden Cottage. It was so homely and comfortable. Very warm and welcoming home. Everything you could possibly want (and more) is provided for.
