Star Cottage is the most delightful property in a wonderful location. Warm and welcoming from the start, the owner has gone out of her way to ensure guests receive 5 star treatment. From the decor to the finer details, everything has been carefully considered in order to make our stay a happy one. We had a thoroughly wonderful, relaxing stay here exploring the Cotswolds which is right on the doorstep. The cosy log burner warmed our toes but Star Cottage truly warmed our hearts.
We booked the Easter Weekend. As soon as you see the picture on the web I melted. As soon as I arrived I melted again. The house is a beautiful welcoming place - I would call it a "Boutique Holiday Home". As soon as you walk through the garden gate your manic life will fade away. Then as you enter the house you are welcomed with wine and biscuits and of course not forgetting my four legged friend - She got treats.
You enter a warm cosy house. You feel like you have just arrived home. The kitchen was fully equipped and beyond. The gorgeous inviting sitting room was glorious. So comfortable and tasteful. The roaring fire is of course an asset, should the weather be cold.
The bedrooms upstairs are gorgeous and the quality linen and mattresses were first class. Everything in the house was first class. Fantastic place just to getaway.
The garden at the front and the back courtyard are ideal for catching the sun.
All you have to do is pack your bag and turn up. Eating wise - enough gastro pubs around. We tried the Greedy Goose up the road which was wonderful. The Coach and Horses not far up the road, was lovely too. We didn't even end up venturing the few yards up the road to the Red Lion, which was a shame, but will do next time. You have enough entertainment at the house with DVD's and the TV, so when the weather is bad you can chill with movies or a good book, just like home. It is also so quiet away from it all. Please visit and take care of this beautiful place. Its a real gem!! I would rather have kept it to myself.
