“Beautiful Cottage in heart of Cotswolds”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Rose Cottage is a delightful and beautifully maintained cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds. Preparations for our arrival were meticulous with Emmanuel ensuring we had all the necessary details and paperwork. We visited with our two small children and dog and used it as a base to explore the surrounding area. The village itself is very quiet - we saw only one other person walking around the village during our 3 day stay. There are two very nice pubs nearby but do check opening times as we were turned away by one after a 20 minute walk to get to it. Nearby towns are a short drive and offer shops and restaurants. We particularly liked Lower and Upper Slaughter, and did a nice walk between the two. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing break away from city life this is ideal.

“Beautiful Idyllic english cottage where we had our 1st family holiday with our 4 week old baby!”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The cottage is warm, characterful and cosy. It has a small but well equipped kitchen that we made many meals in for the 5 of us staying. Everything has been thought through and the instructions and visitors manual is completely fool proof making our stay easy and smooth running. We arrived to some organic local breads, mild, butter and some fresh eggs from the cleaners hens. Super sweet! The beds are really comfortable. Lovely walks are on the door step with public footpaths beginning within eye shot of the front door. Local pubs serve great food, cask ales and good cider. its not a cheap area so having a kitchen of your own means you don't spend a fortune whilst being here :)

“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked Rose Cottage for a relaxing break and it didn't disappoint. A delightful cottage in an idyllic village. Oddington is an ideal location to explode the Cotsworlds and has two superb friendly pubs within walking distance of the cottage. The cottage is set in a quiet lane and has everything you need for a relaxing break. Ideal for walking and spendimg tme eating outside in the lovely peaceful garden. The only negative is that we didn't book for a longer period!

“Fantastic Character Cottage”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was our second stay at Rose Cottage this year. My wife and I both have cancer and found Rose Cottage so relaxing and suited our requirements. The character and location of the cottage is perfect. Emmanuel and Jenny are such a lovely couple their communication is excellent. Finding this cottage was like striking gold it is perfect in everyway for us both.

“Another perfect stay in beautiful Rose Cottage”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

For anyone that would like to experience the character and ambience of a typical olde worlde English cottage look no further then Rose Cottage! We stayed here earlier in the year and loved it so much we couldn't wait to book again for later in the year. Once again the owners Emmanuel and Jenny made our stay so perfect. The village of upper Oddington is a typical sleepy village with an excellent pub within walking distance that serves delicious food. Within a few miles you are at the lovely villages of stow on the wold, Bourton on the water and Moreton on marsh and we also visited Stratford upon Avon and Cheltenham which were about 20 miles away. In fact we love this cottage so much we are booking again for December to experience Christmas shopping in the Cotswolds. There are so many lovely little extra touches like English garden smelling toiletries and the eggs, bread, milk and butter ready for your arrival. The cottage has an enchanting log fire so cosy in the evenings when it got chilly. The only negative is leaving the cottage at the end of a fabulous stay!
