"My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Hydehill Cottage. It is a traditional stone cottage, adjoining the owners' house and with pretty views forward. Access is by an uneven track (my low-slung sports car had no problems) and parking is above the cottage to the rear. Access to the cottage itself (60 metres) is by steepish steps or potentially slippery grassy slope so possibly not suitable for an elderly person, particularly since the internal stairs are also steep.The garden is pleasantly sunny in the right weather but shared with the owners, who have internal access via a couple of thin wooden doors ("locked"). Noise insulation is therefore poor and the owners' kitchen overlooks the cottage access, again limiting privacy. The cottage is also overlooked from the rear, where the site rises, and the bathroom has no frosted glass, another potential privacy issue. The central heating system is also shared with the owners, tenants having only limited control. The only additional heating is from the solid fuel stove in the sitting room. Wifi is available but insecure and proved intermittent.Decor, furnishings and tableware are pleasantly traditional and in good condition. The oven and microwave work well and appear recent. The bed/s (arranged as a double or singles on request) is/are comfortable and the duvet warm. Some floors are uneven, which might again be a problem for older folk. The rooms are all good sizes, which is not always the case with holiday cottages, and the owners are sensitive regarding their dogs. These are not unduly intrusive and well controlled. The owners welcome tenants with dogs but the cottage does not smell of dogs, another occasional holiday cottage problem.We were welcomed by the owner, shown around the cottage, and invited to ask if there was anything we needed - a pleasant touch these days. There was no 'welcome snack' - scones or whatever - and tenants will need to bring all basic foodstuffs, such as sugar, milk, etc.This part of the Cotswolds is really very interesting and attractive. It is an area which we have regularly driven through but never stayed to appreciate. There is however a great deal to see and enjoy and I would recommend others to do the same. Accepting the limitations of the cottage I would have no hesitation about booking it again."

"Excellent location; nice and peaceful; accommodation fairly clean; several cobwebs that should have been dealt with in the cleaning before occupancy; ensuite to double bedroom smelt of stale water because sealant around shower was missing in places; shower tray partially filled when showering due to hair down plug hole; bath in twin ensuite was extremely slow to fill and hair down that plug hole too; electrical socket behind bedside table was gaffer taped to the wall; had to move wheelie bins from under double bedroom window as the smell was horrendous, smelt like dead flesh therefore flies were in abundance; kitchen cupboards nearly all full of utensils so not a lot of space for food; some utensils not as clean as they could be; frying pan was a little rusty so unable to use; double room bed very comfortable; sofa and armchairs a bit low for us and not very comfortable; oven a bit grubby; plenty of storage space in bedroom; garden very pretty and well kept; the pigs were gorgeous; owners father apologised for bins under window, he washed the wheelie bin out after they were emptied by refuse collection, gaffer tape on socket, he explained it was difficult finding time to repair it due to lettings, also apologised for hair down plug holes very pleasant gentleman."

"Two main aspects : 1) The owners are very friendly and helpful. 2) The cottage is not suitable for elderly people, and this should be clearly stated in your description , e.g. the stairs are not just steep, but extremely steep. The access from the recommended parking is over grotesquely uneven cobbled area, slippery if wet. At the moment the area around the cottage is a building site, as a barn con version is going on immediately adjacent to the cottage. That mean that instead of rural tranquillity the visitors have the noise of heavy machinery all working day long. Why did you not tell us about this ?"

"This gorgeous farmhouse was the perfect hideaway for a weekend spent celebrating a birthday with family. We especially loved the welcoming kitchen with everything thought of right down to the plastic bowls for the little ones and the baby cham glasses for adults – perfect for our celebratory champagne! Sarah, the caretaker had left a lovely selection of jams along with local welsh cakes and fruit cakes – simply scrummy with a cuppa tea! If you can drag yourself away from the cosiness of the open log fire and comfy couches, or if you’re just a little desperate for some phone signal, then head to nearby Lake Vyrnwy which was very pretty. I would also recommend The Eagles Inn pub, a little further away but right next to Lake Bala, for a dog-friendly pub with the most welcoming and hospitable staff. Try the delicious locally bred homemade steak and ale pie but be aware – huge portions!"

"What a great cottage!! Although we had rubbish weather while there, you could not fault the cottage which was very well kept, comfortable and fully equipped. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything (including a quarter pint of milk and some shortbread waiting for us!), and the shower had great pressure! We only had one dry day, but did a lovely 12km walk straight out the door. The cottage is on a working farm so my only warning is that the animals are very boisterous in the morning, serving as an alarm clock, particularly if you keep the windows open at night! There is a pub in West Meon, and two in East Meon, either direction not more than a couple kms. We went to Ye Olde George which was nice. A day trip including Winchester and Portsmouth is also doable. Would be lovely to return in better weather!!"
