"What a fantastic week, beautiful scenery, absolute tranquillity, we will all be taking home lovely memories. We all loved the cottage, the wildlife and the horses."  (Geraghty-Morris family, Devon - 12-19 July 2014)

"A wonderful holiday cottage, so well equipped in such a lovely, quiet location." (J Lyons, Oxon - 8 - 11 Nov 2013).

"We have been staying here in Akeman for more than 12 years - it's a lovely, quiet rural place with everything you need and walks right on the doorstep ... it's one of our favourite places in the UK!" (H & G Flack, Somerset - June 2013).

We had a terrific week here in the Cotswolds...Everything was perfect, from the quietness of the place to the very nice welcome we got when we arrived.  We loved the eggs, the animals, your friends, the sheep, the chickens coming in the morning and the walks through the very close woods.  It is really the perfect place to forget Paris ... We hope to come back as soon as possible (Paillard family, Paris - May 2013).
