We stayed at Holly Cottage during Xmas week as a family of 2 adults and 3 children. The cottage was full of character with big rooms and plenty of space. There is a large garden at the rear and some nice walks close-by. The village is very typical of the Cotswolds area and there is a pub within walking distance. Witney is only a 10 min drive which has a Waitrose and other large shops.
Overall we would recommend this cottage however there were a few things that prevented us giving 5 stars.
1. We requested an early check-in as we were arriving from Australia in the morning and would have tired kids (24 hrs of flying). We did not receive a response to our request and when we arrived at the cottage at 4pm check-in time there were still people cleaning the property, a little flexibility on this would have been much appreciated.
2. The cottage is reasonably well equipped but does not have a microwave, full shower or clothes dryer and some basic supplies (such as bin bags, toilet paper, fire wood) were in short supply. For the price we were paying for the the cottage, these facilities and a decent amount of supplies are not unreasonable.
Me and a group of friends had such a great time at this cottage. There was literally nothing wrong with it as it came with everything you would need and it was nice and peaceful. We got to enjoy such a wonderful big garden as well as the log fire. The only problem I had personally was that I was too tall but being 6ft6 I have that problem most places ha. I thought it was going to be a problem for phone signal but it wasn't at all plus there was WIFI anyways. I would definitely recommend this!
