    Stayed there with my friend as a base to go to Badminton Horse Trials. Charmian was a very helpful hostess and put breakfast in our room so we could eat early before we left. Lovely clean room and en suite fantastic views and comfy beds. Hope to visit again. Thank you so much much Charmian.

    We stayed at this wonderful b&b for 2 nights, 22&23rd Nov 2014. Charmian is the most perfect host, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was scrummy! The rooms are very comfortable. We look forward to returning to this little gem in the heart of the Cotswolds very soon!

    This was our second visit to Garden Cottage. We had an enjoyable stay for 3 nights 2 years ago, hence our return this year. Once again, very comfortable, clean rooms with tea making facilities, TV etc. Excellent breakfast with good choices, particularly wonderful to have fresh raspberries from the garden! Charmian is the perfect host, very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you – we will certainly stay again if we are coming to the Cotswolds.

    We both really enjoyed our stay at Garden Cottage. We stayed in the double room which had a good sized en-suite. Lovely and clean and comfortable and excellent value. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Extras like bottled water and biscuits were much appreciated. Good information in the room. A short walk to The Lamb for a nice evening meal.

  10. Sue and Ken says:

    We have just enjoyed two nights at Garden Cottage. The room was clean and comfortable and Charmian the perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was delicious and just what we asked for[no nasty black pudding that some insist on]. Charmian served us tea and biscuits in the pretty sunny garden. We hope to return one day!

    We had a delightful stay at Garden Cottage. Our en-suite room was very comfortable and well equipped with lovely views. Breakfast was hearty and delicious and we were able to walk off the extra calories in the beautiful surrounding countryside. We would highly recommend Garden Cottage to anyone visiting The Cotswolds

  13. Richard, Carol, and Lois says:

    We took shelter at the Garden Cottage for 3 days recently, taking both rooms. The rooms were extremely comfortable, and you couldn’t ask for a more gracious and generous host than Charmian. She went above and beyond to ensure our stay was an excellent one. The breakfast was delicious, so much so that we threatened her with becoming permanent residents. We were, by the way, the lucky recipients of those freshly-laid eggs mentioned by other guests. Wow. What a difference in taste (or it could simply be Charmian’s excellent cooking). Shipton Under Wychwood is delightful and a terrific location for wider tours of the Cotswolds. Thank you, Charmian, for everything. Be assured that we will seek you out on our next visit to England.

  14. Glenn and Maude says:

    Very good accommodation. Excellent breakfast. Well situated for touring the Cotswolds.

  15. Elaine Hall says:

    I would highly recommend this B & B

  16. Elaine Hall says:

    Just back from a 3 night stay at Garden Cottage. We haed a really good stay. Garden Cottage was spotlessly clean and well cared for. Our room was the twin room, which overlooked the vast countryside. Charmain’s breakfast were excellent. It was nice not to automatically be given beans, but you can request them if you wished.

    • Charmian says:

      Thank you for your kind comments – it was good to meet you both and I’m pleased you liked the breakfast !!

  17. Lynda Harris says:

    We recently spent an enjoyable long weekend at Garden Cottage. It is in a lovely spot on the edge of the village of Shipton under Wychwood. Our room was spotless and comfortable with a view of the surrounding countryside. Chamian is a real foodie and her breakfasts were really excellent. The weekend we stayed she had just taken delivery of some chickens so freshly laid eggs may well soon be on the menu. There is an excellent pub (the Lamb) just 2 minutes down the road with open fires and good food. Charmian is a charming host and I highly recommend this B&B.

  18. Scott Robinson says:

    We have stayed at Garden Cottage a couple of times when visiting local family in the Cotswolds.

    It’s a lovely part of the world, the Garden Cottage rooms are very comfortable, Charmian is a charming host and her breakfasts are to die for.

    Highly recommended great value.
