We had a very pleasant stay over a long weekend. The property is comfortably furnished, and has a particularly well-equipped kitchen. The garden is pleasant despite being very steep. When we ran into a problem with the heating system, the housekeeper and the owner went to immense lengths to get the issue sorted as soon as possible. I would be happy to return. However, it is worth noting that you will need to watch your head if you are tall going up the second set of stairs.
We booked Flax Cottage for a weekend out of London, to celebrate a big Birthday of one of our group of four.
We chose Flax Cottage in the beautiful village of Painswick and had a fabulous stay. The cottage had everything we needed, was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The team at Character Cottages helped to make sure everything was plain sailing from start to finish and I would definitely recommend this cottage.
If you find yourself in Painswick, you have to pay a visit to Gill and Mike, owners of The Royal Oak, who made our Saturday night so memorable.
