“Without a doubt one of the nicest Airbnb’s we have stayed in. it was perfect for us, the location, space, facilities all great, we are already planning a return visit.” May 2024

“Lovely cottage close to all the amenites of the village square and park. perfect for a family break with plenty to see and do within a short journey. Definitely recommend.” April 2024

“We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at Cranebrook Cottage. The cottage was very well equipped and presented, and was very clean. We certainly felt at home and it served as a great base from which to explore the local area, as well as being ideally located to visit Oxford which is only a 40 minute drive down the A40. The house had everything that we needed and truly felt like a home from home. Our boys appreciated the proximity of the play park, only two minutes walk away. We could easily have stayed for longer, and I wish I’d booked an extra night to give us some more time. Thank you for an excellent stay.” April 2024

“Lovely break. Great location for lots of sightseeing and exploring. Good sized house for the 4 of us. Well equipped kitchen. Clean throughout.” February 2024.

“Absolutely love the house, and Northleach. We’ll be back :)” Christmas 2023

“We have just returned from Dawn’s cottage having had a lovely few days. The cottage has plenty of room and is equipped for children, extremely comfortable and spotless. It is located in the village and was a great base to visit the area.” October 2023

“We chose Cranebrook Cottage for our stay in Northleach to attend a family wedding. The cottage is lovely, spacious and suited three women preparing for a wedding very well. Lots of mirrors! Northleach is a sweet Cotswold town and well situated for touring the area. Tip on transportation- if you are using the bus from Cheltenham be sure you get on the one that actually stops in Northleach- the signage doesn’t tell the difference. Everything about the cottage (full sized house by Canadian standards) was exactly as depicted. We recommend it to other larger groups as it becomes quite affordable when the cost is shared. We didn’t meet Dawn or the cleaners but she was responsive, friendly and clear in her instructions. Sometimes AirBnBs meet all the criteria but are featureless – the IKEA approach. Cranebrook Cottage was formerly owned by a Lady and the Cotswold stone building and interior still retain some character. So a great stay in a quiet house with lots of privacy!” September 2023

“Fantastic cosy, but spacious spotless cottage, literally a couple of minutes’ walk from the heart of Northleach. 3 generous sized bedrooms, Main bedroom with a super king bed, second room with a king bed and then the single room. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. All bedrooms, beautifully furnished with huge wardrobes, the kitchen and lounge are also large, well equipped and nicely furnished. The only slight drawback was the single parking space, right next to the door, but there is a reasonable sized free car park in the Market place and a few other places to park very nearby- even on a Bank Holiday weekend. The village has a well-stocked grocery store and, several cafes, bars, and restaurants. Dawn is a very helpful and friendly host, very responsive to queries. Thank you, will definitely book again if we are in the area again.” August 2023

“The house was the best! great location, super clean, very beautiful and had everything we needed in any way possible.” August 2023

“Cranebrook Cottage is delightful. Beautifully appointed with every amenity that you could need for a short or a long stay. The beds and pillows were so comfortable. Situated in Northleach, even though very close to the centre of the village it was quiet and peaceful. A number of good places to eat were within walking distance, and many Cotswold attractions just a short drive away. I can highly recommend.” August 2023

“The house was immaculate and the kitchen was well equipped. Would recommend the property as a holiday let. Thank you” August 2023

“Dawn’s cottage is lovely, very comfortable and super clean. It had everything we needed. Dawn was very helpful and responded quickly. Parking is right beside the entrance to the house.” July 2023

“This house was perfect, we stayed here with my mum, dad and daughter and within 15 minutes of being there we all said how much we already felt like we were home. I actually found that the house was bigger in real life than in the photos which is usually the other way around. Main bedroom with a super king bed, second room with a king bed and then the single room. All beds felt like hotel beds, big comfy pillows and fresh as can be linen and towels. Big kitchen, lovely lounge and fantastic facilities. Couldn’t recommend enough.” July 2023

“Dawn was a lovely host and very helpful. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay, well equipped for babies, and is a stunning location also. Thanks Dawn, we had a lovely time” June 2023

“This place was so cozy and comfortable with an adorable patio. More spacious than I expected actually. Quiet & peaceful. Quick easy walk around the corner to the main shopping center. Village is very central to other towns- and after visiting a few of them I am so glad we found this cottage in in a less crowded, low-key area. We came to the Cotswolds to relax and this was a great spot for that.” May 2023

“Comfortable, clean house. Northleach itself is lovely, so picturesque but peaceful. It has everything you need, coffee shop, store and fantastic pub – The Wheatsheaf.” May 2023

“2 old friends and I were looking for a house with 3 bedrooms to meet up for a few days. This cottage was perfect. It was beautiful and spotless. It had a lovely courtyard garden with seating area that would be lovely on a hot day, but sadly it wasn’t warm enough for us to sit out. The only slight drawback for us was only having 2 parking spaces, but there was a free car park nearby. The host was very responsive to all my questions and seemed very friendly. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to this area in the future.” May 2023

“Lovely cosy cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds – in a great village, walkable to all basic amenities. Dawn was a very responsive host, so the trip was easy to plan. Heavenly beds!” April 2023

“Many thanks for the lovely stay and the quick responses to questions. Hugely appreciated how accommodating you were to the last minute reservation !”

“Our cottage in the Cotswolds was everything we hoped.

The cottage itself had everything we needed and communication with our host was excellent. The village was picturesque and the country around was beautiful. With a car it is within easy reach of some great places to visit such as Bath and Blenheim Palace.” July 2022

“Great location – ‘middle of Cotswolds’

Northleach is a great little village with essential amenities and all the big tourist hotspots are only 20-35 minutes away by car. Great property with sun-trap garden to relax in.” August 2022

Very comfortable cottage in beautiful environment.

Super comfortable, large and clean cottage. We immediately felt welcome and at home. Very clean and spacious. Good base to explore Cotswold through hiking or biking or to visit Oxford.” August 2022

“Heart of the Cotswolds.

A lovely property in the heart of this classic Cotswold village with a beautiful view over the cottage gardens to the church. A quiet spot but with all facilities very close, including all-purpose shop, bakery, bar with live music and pub with fantastic food. Perfect location for exploring the area too.” August 2022

“Perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds with kids

We had a great stay at this fantastically-located and well-appointed cottage. It was great for us (small kids and a dog in tow) to be so close to the park and shops. Thanks – we may well be back!” August 2022

Excellent property in good location

Nice walks with plenty in the area to keep you occupied. Good sized property with just about everything you could need. Failing that, there were shops about 1 minute walk away.” September 2022

A wonderful Christmas Break

A lovely property which was very clean and very roomy for three of us! Would still be a good size for six. A great little town as well and if the weather had been better we would have also loved to have had several long walks in the area.” December 2022

Cotswolds mini break

Excellent property in a very picturesque town in the Cotswolds central to many lovely places. Lovely comfortable beds, very quiet neighbourhood, a truly fabulous place to explore the Cotswolds. I thoroughly recommend.” New Year 2022/23
