We stayed at Daisy Chain in Sept 2016, with 6 adults, 3 young children and 1 baby. The house was great for us all - the grandparents had their own peaceful room and bathroom to escape to upstairs! The kids had loads of toys to play with, which kept them v busy! And the fact that we didn't need to bring baby equipment was fab, with the provision of a cot, high chair, blackout blind, bath mats, changing mat. The kitchen is so well equipped with more you could ever need and even plastic for the little ones.
What struck me most about the house was the view! It's breathtaking. And every time of day and weather provides a different version of the view!
We enjoyed using the spa swimming pools, inside and out, and us women had a few minutes in the sauna! We had a good meal in the restaurant onsite - Ballyhoo. Service on our particular night was slow but I think this was out of the ordinary. The food was great and the kids could play in the adjacent playground while we waited with a glass of wine!
Taking out the canoe on the lake was a highlight; so peaceful and beautiful. And we did the miss mouse adventure trail with the kids - great way to tire them out, exploring and learning, although it's a bit further than we expected with 3 year old complainers!
We also biked a bit in the area, but ran out of time to try out the tennis unfortunately!
A really lovely weekend in a great (and spacious) house, on a well kept and friendly estate, and I suspect we'll be back!

Thank you for your kind words. Daisy Chain is a perfect home for grandparents, parents and grandchildren to share. Enough space for everyone to relax and so much for everyone to enjoy! We're so pleased you found all the 'family kit' useful. It's so much easier to have it at Daisy Chain rather than having to arrive with an overflowing car. We make sure our guests know what they will find at Daisy Chain so they really can save on packing. So glad you managed some time out in the canoe too - it's always so peaceful on the water. We look forward to welcoming you back again one day.

Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Beautiful house, unbelievably well equipped. Felt a million miles away from the day to day drudge. Before we'd even finished the holiday I was figuring out in my mind how we could get back there again soon. A unique holiday experience. My daughter (14) remarked it was better than all the foreign holidays we have been on.

“Superb house for a family getaway”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Daisy Chain provided an excellent base for our extended family gathering. The house is modern and well equipped plus it had lots of childrens toys that kept my nephew and nieces entertained for hours! The estate felt very safe and we enjoyed making use of the pool and spa facilities. Bike hire was straightforward and it was easy to explore the local area. We are already discussing retuning in the summer.

We're so pleased you had such a lovely stay at Daisy Chain and that the children enjoyed all the toys. By providing lots of toys and equipment for under 5's we aim to make the holiday that much more relaxing for the grown ups! Lovely to hear that you explored on bikes as well...and of course enjoyed the Spa. We hope to welcome you back again next year.

“Gem in Beautiful Cotswold”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

When we checked into this gem each one of our family of 9 had a smile on our faces. I’m a perfectionist, so I really appreciate when I encounter someone who also takes equal pride and pains in achieving high standards. Daisy Chain is truly a superbly equipped, well maintained property and we would highly recommend it to anybody wanting to take a holiday in this beautiful part of England. The owners obviously seem to be themselves using the property occasionally, and that probably explains why it seems immaculately served to visiting guests. The shared heated pool, steam, sauna & gym were icing on the cake and we enjoyed using the facilities, which I must say were maintained to very high standards with a very friendly staff making us feel comfortable. The location of the property overlooking the lake is just breathtaking. We did not have small children with us, but we did see that the property had enough to engage the young ones too. Initially we did find the heating a little cold for our liking and made a quick phone call to the owner Naomi (who lives in another town). She immediately responded by turning up the heating from her location. One car could be parked at the property and another in the spill over parking 2 minutes away. Wished we had stayed longer. Would not even blink once before staying there again in the near future. These are 5 deserving stars I would gladly give away anytime.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Daisy Chain so much. We love watching guests faces when they see the views from the living room across the lake! You're right, we do use the property ourselves which enables us to ensure that everything is kept to a high standard. We love spending time at Daisy Chain with our young family and sharing it with others too. We hope to be able to welcome you back for another Cotswold Family Holiday soon.
