“Fantastic stay in the Cotswolds”.

I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic stay in the Cotswolds at Notgrove, on behalf of our group. Thank you for your help in organising the trip as it really contributed to the weekend being such a success! Kate who did our catering on Saturday evening was excellent and we were delighted with the meal and her customer service. We all had such a wonderful time and loved the property. It’s beautifully done, well equipped and you really have thought of everything thoughtfully. We were fortunate with the weather and enjoyed the outdoor space and exploring the local area. We had children within the party crying as they didn’t want to leave yesterday morning!

Thank you once again and we look forward to returning to Notgrove very soon.”

Notgrove Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds

Here in an area bounded by Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon you’ll find some of the finest landscape in England. Cotswold towns and villages such as Burford, Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water are world famous and remain largely unchanged since their creation in medieval England centuries ago. This was when the wealth of the wool trade left its mark in the high quality stone buildings for which the area is renowned.

Notgrove itself lies in the heart of the Cotswolds, only 4 miles from Northleach, famed for its magnificent church of St Peter and St Paul which is claimed to be the “Cathedral of the Cotswolds”. Nearby, the River Windrush flows through the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water, creating a very picturesque village scene.

At nearly 800ft, Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold towns and is famous as a centre for antiques. The Roman Fosse Way from Cirencester to Leicester passes through it and it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill.

Should you decide to stay for a few days in one of our holiday cottages you will find plenty of places to visit and sites to enjoy, in these market towns or quiet villages and hamlets. If you would like to book a cottage please click here

It’s all about great service…

“Just to say thanks for a fabulous week at Avery Cottage! A beautiful base for exploring a wonderful area, no-one wanted it to end today.
And thank you again for your time in taking us to feed the alpacas on Monday, the kids were thrilled and I think our youngest won’t realise our holiday is over until he can’t see the alpacas out of the window when he has breakfast tomorrow!

Hope the cottages continue to do as well for Notgrove as they deserve to.”

Ann Barnes – Avery Cottage

“We had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage was fantastic – wonderfully clean and the children loved the private and safe garden. We will certainly look to book with you again next time we are in the Cotswolds.”

Mrs Jethwa – 2 Church Cottage

“We had a really great time and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. The area was really lovely and the cottage extremely good, comfortable and well equipped. Very clean. A lot of thought had gone in to what might be needed.”

Mr Ellerton – Avery Cottage

We had a great time at the pods , 2 families celebrating a special birthday. The pods were spotless and really cosy and cute. We loved meeting all the animals and walking to the pub in Cold Aston. It was really peaceful and the sunflowers were beautiful! The firepit was great for bbqing on and sitting round in the evening. The games room is a fantastic idea for worse weather days and the table tennis and table football went down a storm with both the kids and adults! The hot drinks machine was a welcome touch as was the availability to purchase emergency supplies! Many thanks for a lovely stay.read more

Loved our stay in Poppy pod at this beautiful location, so clean, very comfy beds great to have a tv and wifi. Loved the games room, so great to have access 24/7. We walked lots around the area and the scenery so close to the accommodation is breathtaking. I wanted to take blossom home with me, loved all the animals. My favourite thing would be the trail we discovered. Thank you for a wonderful vacation Notgrove we will be back.read more

It was incrediable! I took my partner away for a surprise birthday present and we both loved every second! It was clean and tidy, there's so much to do around you! The walks around the Pods are so relaxing! I loved that Kate's dog comes round each morning to greet you! One of the best parts! The farm animals are great! I felt like I was in a different world completely every time I woke up! Everybody was so polite and helpful if we needed any help! We met very nice families around us, we will defiantly be going Glamping again here! Thank you so much for wonderful week and a first time experience glamping!read more

We had a wonderful 5 days in one of the pods. The kids loved the play area and made friends straight away. Feeding the animals was brilliant as the kids never stopped talking about it. A beautiful setting and a great location to explore. We will definitely be backread more

Such a great place to stay:-) The pod was well-equipped and comfortable - even a flat screen tv and the kids had the cheek to say said the wi-fi was better quality than ours at home! We hired bikes that were delivered to us at our pods, cooked on the fire pit and enjoyed the freshly laid eggs, loved all the animals especially the friendly goats and the 'wiggy' alpacas, the countryside was so beautiful and relaxing, and we really felt a million miles away from city life. Really good value for money break and I am recommending Notgrove to anyone wanting to escape to the Cotswolds for some quality time with friends or family.read more

What a wonderful stay we had. We stayed in Willowherb for just 1 night, but wished it had been longer. The pods really are perfect, wirh everything you need and the children felt it was such an adventure. The facilities inside and outside of the pod were great. There are some lovely walks around the area too. Looking out of the window and seeing the animals was a lovely way to wake up. We will be back!read more

We had a wonderful holiday at Notgrove. We stayed in Poppy Pod which was just perfect. It was SO clean and tidy. The games room was excellent, although my son wanted to play on the pool table but that was situated in the other games room which we weren't able to use. The location and surrounding area was beautiful and tranquil. Having our evening meal cooked on the fire pit each evening was superb and of course the marshmallows too! I've rated four stars and not five for one reason only, which was the lack of seeing any staff. We didn't see anyone until I went to ask about the pool table. That was it! I think it would have been nice on the day of arrival for some to pop their head round and say "hi I'm ... and if you need anything just give us a shout/call but other than that we will leave you to your own devices, enjoy your stay" we honestly didn't see anyone?? Just a few words would have been nice. Anyway, we did have a fabulous stay and we would love to stay there again. Kind regards, A Camplingread more

We recently had a wonderful three night stay in Chestnut. There were seven of us and the ground floor bedroom was perfect for my 90 year old parents. The cottages are very well appointed and brilliantly converted from farm buildings. We loved the spacious ,open plan living area . We also enjoyed a lovely meal in the cottage which was cooked by Kate Pennell a talent local chef. We have every intention of paying a return visit to this beautiful estate which is in an outstandingly pretty area.read more

I would have liked to have given five stars but due to the following issues I'm afraid it has to be only four. I booked Bluebell pod as a birthday treat for my husband. We arrived on Saturday 8th July only to discover that the bespoke extras I had paid for were not there. Faced with the prospect of no crockery or linen (the fire pack didn't matter so much) I called the telephone number provided and left a message informing you of our plight and awaited a response. When we didn't get a call we decided to walk down to the games room area to see if there was anyone around. After a few minutes a lady arrived in a car. We enquired whether she was a member of staff and was told she was. I was about to explain our problem but she cut me short and rather curtly stated that I hadn't ordered these items which is why they were not in the pod. I had been trying to find the confirmation email on my phone but the data signal was not good so it took me a while. In the meantime she had driven off with the missing items so we followed her back to Bluebell. I attempted to explain that, although I had not ordered the bespoke extras at the time of booking I had emailed and added them on later and had confirmation that they were added from someone called Katie. It turned out that this lady was Katie herself. I wanted to show her the confirmation email but she simply snapped that she'd left her children to sort our issue out and drove away again! This left my husband and I feeling guilty for something that was your fault and not ours! Not a good start. However, we were desperate for a cup of tea so set about unpacking the 'crockery'. Not crockery, but plastic cups, plates etc. Not a problem apart from the fact that the cups were very dirty so we had to scrub them before we could even make a cuppa! We discovered that this seems to be a problem with the material they are made from and they are very hard to clean, but these little details should be checked before giving them out to people. The pod itself was wonderfully clean and tidy and the only other issue is that the tiny freezer compartment in the fridge was very iced up and did not keep the ice cream we bought frozen. We had to throw it away! Something else you need to check before guests arrive. Having said all of that, the setting is stunning! It was lovely to have the fire pit and we found the animals and countryside totally charming. We even had a flock of house martins flying around us this morning as we were preparing to depart. The issues that we had at the start of our stay would not deter us from visiting again, but I strongly suggest that you take a little more care over looking after your paying customers as we are the ones who can make or break this type of business!read more

We stayed in the Lodge for 4 nights. The cottage is very quaint and generally very comfortable with a lovely private garden and the surrounding area is beautiful. The kitchen is pretty well equipped with all the basics required for cooking (and cleaning) and the staff we met were lovely. I was surprised and disappointed when a heating engineer turned up unexpectedly to service the boiler on the second morning of our stay, I would have expected to be informed about this by the staff in advance and would obviously have preferred if it had been arranged for one of the change over days so it didn't inconvenience us as guests. I also felt that the laminated notices inside both front and back doors telling us not to walk on the private drive or gardens were far from welcoming! Both these things left a slightly sour taste in the mouth for what would otherwise be a very idyllic holiday.read more

We have just had a fantastic two night stay in Lupin Pod and couldn't be happier with our lovely relaxing time at Notgrove. The Estate is beautiful and we really appreciated the efforts that have gone in to maintaining the footpaths, bridleways and wild flower field perimeters - we did a fantastic 8 mile circular walk followed by a delicious meal at The Plough Inn, Cold Aston. A weekend to remember and recommend to others �read more

Stayed in a pod for 2 nights. Although the pod is small it has everything you need in there. The double bed is quite small if you are tall but for 2 nights it was fine. The shower was excellent - powerful and hot. The only issue with the shower room was there was a foul smell in there all the time. (The wc is also in there). Not sure if this was because we were in the first pod and the drainage all runs down to our end. The games room is big but not very good when the 2 main items to play did not have a ball!! Therefore we could not play ping pong or the football table. We searched high and low but could not locate a ball. The actual area is beautiful and clean and all the little surrounding villages are the same. Some lovely pubs and Bourton on Water is a must. Overall a lovely place to stay.read more

We had an absolutely fantastic time at notgrove staying in the pods! They were so cute and rather roomy than expected! I slept on the sofa bed which was surprisingly comfortable! We did hire the cooking pack and fire pack which I would recommend as it saves you taking it all with you. The grounds were kept absolutely beautiful. The animals were lovely to see and of course wallis and gromit roaming around saying hello : D I would recommend taking a fan in this weather as the pods do get quite hot. Other than that we would definitely recommend Notgrove and will be back soon!read more

We stayed in the Notgrove pods for 5 days and loved every minute.. the pods are compact but well equipped. We had lovely weather so the double doors were permanently open, sat there in the peace was wonderful and so relaxing, the way the outdoor space is set up each pod has its own privacy which is great, due to the size of the pod cooking inside is slightly limited as you only get one hob & microwave but outside cooking is a must in nice weather anyway � would definitely go back and recommend them to anyone �read more

We have just come back from a weekend away at Notgrove with 7 other families. We stayed in the pods which were fully equipped with toaster, kettle, fridge & microwave. As we were in a large group it would have been a lot better having a cooker/microwave & fridge in the games room. Each family were having to go back to their pod to cook or collect things in the microwaves & fridges which were going to be eaten in our communal evening BBQ. Shame, I would have given 5 stars. Everything else was perfect. Lovely location & enough to keep kids entertained.read more

Stayed in the glamping pods for 3 days as a different idea to hotel stays. The pods themselves appear very new and adequate for their purpose although if any taller than 5'7 your feet may hang out of the bed! Each pod has a bathroom, double bed, dining area and sofa with tv. We took our own linen and cooking pack rather than paying extra for the option. The weather was beautiful whilst we stayed so had two bbq whilst here and put provided was ideal. On site is a games room which if staying with kids would be ideal along with large garden area, climbing frame and football goals. The only problem we had during our stay was the goats which wander around and although very entertaining to watch, they eat all the newly planted trees and bushes which I'm not sure is quiet appropriate. Pods are located far enough away from each other and separated by a small fence, but during our stay we were the only people there. On the down side you would need a car to visit any local towns and shops. overall a great stay and would entertain going back but with friends so a little bit more to do.read more

Lovely place to stay. The pod was very clean and spacious. The only thing I found a bit annoying was there was nobody to contact. We couldn't find the pods as the only postcode I had, sent us to the manor and we couldn't get hold of anybody for help. On the second night we wanted a fire pack for the evening and couldn't get hold of anyone to buy one, when I finally got hold of someone they said they might be able to get us one turns out they never did..... So the customer care I found was quite poor but the pods and the surroundings were lovely 🙂read more

We had a wonderful time. The pods were perfectly appointed and it was wonderful to have lots of open space for the kids to play in. We all made very good use of the games room and have come home with Table Football superstars. Definitely the most civilised way to spend time in the great outdoors. I have to give a special mention to Harry, who dealt with my failure to order enough bedding with calm and charm. Thank you Notgrove it was fantastic.read more

We had a lovely time staying at the glamping pods with our 2 boys (6 and 2 year old). Pod was surprisingly spacious inside with a small kitchen, toilet with wet room. Great outdoor space and a games room too. Feeding the animals in the morning whilst involving the kids was amazing; our boys loved it. Very convenient location with loads of things to go and do and see nearby! Would definitely recommend it to anyone and we'll certainly be returning soon! Thank you!!!read more

Lovely stay in the glamping pods last weekend. We had booked 4 pods and they were all clean, comfortable and cozy. The location is a great base to explore neighbouring towns. The BBQ grills could be cleaner and slightly bigger. Other than that, we couldn't find any other faults. The games room was fun and the playing area for kids is great too. Would definitely come back and recommend to others!read more
