Lodge Cottage was perfect for us in all respects. The location is ideal for exploring the Cotswolds, with lots of pretty towns and villages within easy reach. Kingham itself is lovely and has a good village shop and two ‘gastropubs’, all within walking distance. The cottage is tucked away in a really quiet spot and is very comfortable and well equipped, with the added bonus of the use of the indoor pool and hammam, plus the all weather tennis court set in the extensive gardens. Marina was the perfect host – helpful but not intrusive – and we loved the freshly made ‘David Cameron’ loaf ! We would definitely go back.

We rented two cottages that adjoin each other for a family weekend to celebrate my Mother’s birthday. They proved to be ideal – the houses themselves were beautifully appointed and excellently equipped. We all loved the grounds, the pool and the hammam – what fun!

Kite’s Gate was beautifully furnished and spacious. The on site pool and large gardens made it an ideal place for a family holiday. The village of Kingham is stunning and there are great pubs serving excellent food that are walking distance from the cottage. We will definitely be back!

Berry Pen was wonderful as a surprise getaway for my wife’s 40th birthday treat with family. The accommodation was immaculate in a superb location, there was nothing I could fault about our stay so would thoroughly recommend for a short (or long) break. We look forward to returning at the earliest opportunity.

We had a wonderful weekend at Kingham Cottages. We enjoyed the pool and Haman which gave us an extra place to relax along with taking a stroll around the grounds. The cottages provided us a lovely, comfortable base from which we enjoyed the surroundings Cotswolds, including a fabulous Sunday lunch in the Kingham Plough. The cottages had plenty of space and ample bathrooms which is fantastic when there lots of guests. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Kingham Cottages.

The loft is spacious and yet homely, we settled in straight away and wished we were staying longer than the weekend. Pool and steam room a real treat. We hired three properties and all were of an excellent standard. We hope to come back next year!

We can’t fault Kingham Cottages – it was wonderful, and we are already planning on coming back! The icing on the cake was having the lovely “Truffle” bimbling around the grounds with us on most days too.

We loved our stay in Kites Gate, the whole family stayed and fitted in well. The kitchen and bathrooms were brilliantly equipped and there was nothing we found missing. The pool facilities were amazing, luxurious and well maintained and the garden was gorgeous.

This is our 2nd time of staying at Kingham (in 2 months!) but the 1st in The Loft. We loved our time here, as we did the first time. The accommodation is excellent with everything that we needed to escape for a few days. We swam lots during our stay; the swimming pool is fabulous and one of our main reasons for staying. We also played tennis. We will be back again, maybe not so soon but planning a birthday stay for Nanny!

The three cottages (Loft, Ryeworth & Kite’s Gate) in combination were a superb location for a multi-family celebratory gathering. The pool was of course the perfect setting fora lot of fun, and the common area of Ryeworth a great space for coming together. We had looked at getting a chef in, but in the end we used Waitrose Entertaining to deliver the party food, which was a good decision. These properties are superbly set up for a 21st century family version of a traditional house party. They were a great venue for a truly memorable weekend.

We had the privilege of being the first guests in the fully renovated and beautifully decorated Berry Pen Cottage. The combination of the secluded garden setting, quality workmanship and attention to detail sets this cottage apart from all other cottages we’ve used in our various stays in the Cotswolds. The openness and light is spectacular, the furnishings are top quality and the kitchen is well equipped with the latest in appliances and utensils. The amenities of the Kingham Lodge property — it’s beautiful gardens, indoor heated pool and tennis court – clearly make this a unique property in a beautiful village.
