“A delightful cottage in a beautiful Cotswold town …complete with the nicest owner, made for a perfect few days. Thea was so kind, in arranging the trip for us at such short notice, but it couldn’t have been nicer. The cottage was so cosy & warm, with everything we needed. Painswick is perfectly located to explore so many of the glorious Cotswolds towns & villages …thank you too Thea, for arranging cloudless blue skys for us - in December! :) A really lovely trip…we look forward to welcoming you back ….thank you so much x ”
Daniel & Thea's reviewsAs a host (10)
“ The cottage was amazing! And located in the most beautiful village. The hosts were extremely responsive and very professional. The property was immaculate upon our arrival and they even provided charcoal for us to have a barbecue on the day of our arrival. The fire inside was also laid ready to light. small touches, which helped to make the stay even more perfect. ”
“Absolutely spotless cottage, the rooms are stunning and could all be out of a magazine. Excellent communication and very generous host. Would highly recommend. ”
“We had a wonderful stay at Thea and Dan's lovely cottage. We were left a very thoughtful array of goodies, thank you! The new work on the garden is really good, we did actually stay a few years ago so could see the difference. The views from the cottage and garden are fabulous. The location is perfect and although the parking can be tricky, we managed to park nearby every day. Painswick is such a lovely village and we were right in the heart of it. We were blessed with glorious weather which just added to a memorable weekend.”
“Painswick is like a storybook village.. Daniel’s little home was so charming and quaint, yet had every amenity we needed! The kitchen, decor and furnishings were lovely and the home was spit spot. We appreciated all the information about the area and the hikes. We absolutely loved our time there and would gladly go back again!”
“I did the exchange with Thea’s beautiful home for my brother and his family. The communication with Thea was so easy and quick right from the beginning. She was very accommodating and caring, she stayed in touch throughout their stay to make sure everything went well. My brother and his family were very thrilled to get a chance to stay in such a lovely place, beautifully and tastefully decorated, very well equipped and conveniently located - a good supermarket is very nearby. It is also a great location to base yourself for exploring the Cotswolds. My brother’s young children didn’t want to leave they thought Thea’s home was exactly what they pictured from a fairly tale book they have read :) They are from Thailand so a home in the Cotswolds to them is only in a dream- not a real world. We can’t thank Thea enough to allow our family to experience something so unique. And now we look forward to hosting Thea in our home. ”
“This was our second home swap and the house and location were perfect. Beautiful Painswick was just what we hoped for and ideally situated to explore the Cotswolds. There was so much to see and The Royal Oak pub around the corner was great for food and drinks. We had a day trip to Highclere Castle ( a long standing ambition ). The house was well equipped and beautifully furnished, we loved it. Thank you Thea. ”
“I fell in love with this delightful cottage and the gorgeous village of Painswick. If I could buy it I would. The home is beautifully appointed and has everything you could want. The kitchen is fabulous. I loved the layout of the house and how compact it was -so easy to keep tidy. Thea is a lovely host and gave me all the tips needed for a really lovely stay. And then there's the view -up a stairway through the back garden is a terrace with a knockout view of the farmlands surrounding -such a haven for breakfast or tea.”
“Everything about this visit went really well! Thea provided excellent instructions and the house was just perfect for our needs. The location worked really well for exploring the Cotswolds. Very handy to walk a block to the pub but nice and quiet location as well. Perfect fit for us three ladies.”
“Beautiful character cottage, in a beautiful lane, set in a perfect quintessential, English Cotswold village all within the stunning county of Gloucester. The Cottage has everything you need as does the village and great pubs, restaurants, markets and shopping found within the area. If you want to sample rural life in a rural English village, I think this would be hard to beat! Communication with Daniel was easy and a pleasure at all times. Cardynham house was one of our favourite places to eat in Painswick, fabulous food, great staff and prices. Falcon Inn too, as was the local pub The Royal Oak. All in all, a great break and we would recommend the cottage and village for a superb break. ”
