May's place is a beautiful cottage and lovely garden. If your looking to stay in the Cotswolds it's a great place with beautiful surroundings. I hope you enjoy it at much as we did.

Lovely, stylish home in a good location for exploring the Cotswolds.

Mr & Mrs W - Australia UK 7th - 25th May & 27th May - 2nd June

A perfect place for us to stay for a month in the cotswold area. It has been a great base for visits to Bath, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Wells, Tetbury and Malmesbury. We have explored all the neighbouring pubs. It has been great staying in the village seeing our family and friends that we have made. Mays Garden Cottage is our home away from home - its just perfect! We will be back.

Miss J-T & Family - London UK 25th - 27th May

We really enjoyed our stay at May’s cottage. It was very homely and we all had a good nights sleep after a long day at a wedding. Bread, milk and bottled water were provided, which was very thoughtful. Thank you May, for a pleasant trip to the Cotswolds! 

Mrs H & Friends - Hertfordshire UK 3rd - 7th May

We had a truly fantastic time. Couldn’t think of anything we would change. Idyllic little cottage in the country. Immaculately clean and well appointed. Stunning countryside and an excellent pub within walking distance. We will definitely be back.

Miss J  - London UK 1st - 3rd May

The garden cottage is charming in a beautiful countryside setting with every amenity you could wish for. I loved the kitchen with espresso machine. It was the perfect place for a quiet get away. It has everything you need and more. Thank you so much for having me to stay. I loved your cottage. What a great set up. 

Mr S & Family - Malaysia 25th - 28th April

Mark & May own a beautiful cottage near Sopworth. It was thoughtful that the host had prepared us some bread, butter, cheese and milk for our breakfast as we arrived late on check in day. The amenities were superb. Nice bedding, fresh towels that smells so clean that made our day after long tiring journey. I can see that the host had put a detailed thought to setup the place. I love the place so much and they have an espresso machine as well. They even throw few stuff for our kids to play and draw. The place is dark at night so better arrive early so that you do not get lost and disturb the host at night time. We managed to chat with Mark and May before we left and they are lovely people. I wish I could have more time to spend and do nothing at the cottage. Just sat and enjoy family time in middle of nowhere.

Ms S & Friends Birmingham UK 20th - 22nd April

Thank you for a very welcoming stay. A beautiful cottage in a lovely location, we had the most wonderful weekend.

A lovely cottage, modern, clean and with all the amenities you could require. A warm welcoming host, who offered tips on the local area on arrival and was easily available for contact should we need anything. A scenic location with a choice of small picturesque towns to visit a short drive away. Perfect accommodation for peace and quiet, to relax and enjoy the Cotswolds region.

Mr & Mrs O'G and Family Harpenden UK 13th - 15th April

Lovely cottage, great location. So peaceful our toddler even slept through one night! The bread, milk and cheese were a great touch. We thoroughly recommend May's cottage.

May's garden cottage is an amazing and wonderfully peaceful place to stay. Great hospitality and very nice treats for us for a great welcome.

Thanks May for everything!

May’s cottage was all we could have asked for! All communication was quick and clear. When we had an issue with the hot water, it was fixed straight away. We loved the thoughtfulness of being left with bread, milk and other goodies. It was a comfortable and wonderful stay - thank you!

Mr & Mrs W & Family Leeds UK 5th - 7th January (copy Airbnb Feedback)

“Great little cottage that is very homely. The place is spotless and very well kept with all things that you would need in a holiday cottage. The owners are very friendly and want to ensure you have everything you need. The location is great if you want to get out walking/cycling. Or use as a base to go to many of the near villages/towns.”
