“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had the pleasure of staying at The Wool Cottage for one week in May 2016. The cottage was very cosy and very nicely furnished - everything we needed, and in a very nice location, close to the village center of Fairford and surrounding attractions in the beautiful Cotswolds. Catherine welcomed us on arrival and the hamper in the cottage was a very nice touch. We would highly recommend the cottage and hope we may be able to visit again.

“Beautiful town, beautiful cottage, welcoming host”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Catherine Elliott was a warm and helpful host when we rented Wool Cottage for a short while we attended a friend's wedding. The cottage is really comfortable and beautifully appointed with plenty of space and a calm relaxing atmosphere. We felt comfortable immediately and we found Catherine to be the perfect host, even helping with directions to our destination. The town is charming and well worth a visit. The surrounding countryside is archetypal English scenery - well worth a visit. We will book again! Thank you, Catherine.

“Just as charming as it looks”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This very sweet cottage is just as charming as it looks online. Catherine and Clive were friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them. We thoroughly enjoyed being part of village life including market day where we got some of the best salmon we've ever eaten. The village is slightly off the Cotswold's tourist circuit which suited us perfectly and made a great base for a week of hiking and meandering through country lanes soaking up the fabulous scenery. We've been travelling throughout the UK for almost a month and have had several disappointing cottages where available amenities didn't match what had been promised. This wasn't the case at Wool Cottage. From the welcome basket complete with fresh bread, milk, a bottle of wine and ginger cake to the tastefully designed bedrooms, well stocked book cases and comfy sofas - everything was just right.

Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a beautiful cottage! Perfect size. It has been renovated to a high spec. Kitchen and living area spacious. The bedrooms are just what you need...ensuite in each. Comfortable beds. The cottage is perfectly situated ten minutes or so from cirencester. Ideal for going to see all the attractions the cotswolds have to offer. Nothing was more than an hour away. Would definitely recommend this getaway.

“Perfect long weekend spending time with my family in a beautiful cottage.”

person found this review helpful

It was our first visit to the Cotswolds from Yorkshire and it turned out to be a great destination to meet up with our son, who travelled from London for a long weekend. I had studied the reviews on trip advisor for a few weeks and it was the cottage we stayed in that I based my decision on rather than location. Wool cottage was perfect for us. It was spotless clean, spacious, modern with a twist of a a traditional cottage feel. The cottage kitchen had everything u would need and one night we had a barbecue on the patio. Both double bedrooms had there own ensuite and again everything spotless clean. A lovely touch from Catherine the owner was a hamper left with local sourced essentials , milk, bread ect. Fairford is a beautiful village so along with the cottage the location was perfect. We had dinner at The ploughman inn and it was really lovely food , everyone so friendly.. Fairford is a perfect place to visit or use as a base to travel around the Cotswolds . I cannot recommend wool cottage highly enough it felt like home from home with owners that made us feel at home too.
