We stayed for a long weekend at the end of November.
Joanne confirmed the stay and how to access before we arrived. We were arriving a bit later than usual, but Joanne was very accommodating and friendly.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
