Michele's place is really lovely - beautifully presented and very comfortable. Twin beds means it's perfect for a group of friends. Location was ideal, really close to lots of great restaurants and the main shopping area, only downside being that it's quite noisy on a Saturday night (not a problem for us as we were out anyway). Parking can be a bit tricky nearby but otherwise we had a really great stay.

We were in Cheltenham for a wedding and Michele's place was great for what we needed. There was plenty of parking around, and you could walk to tons of different restaurants and bars. The house itself was clean and well decorated while still having an old English charm (small walkway to the back entrance, garden, etc.). The bathroom was nice and spacious and the bedrooms were adequate as well. We enjoyed our stay, and it was a good base for exploring the city!

This is a very well equipped, cosy and secure cottage in a great location. Michele was very helpful indeed, extending both check in and check out. The garden is also very lovely and we were fortunate enough to have good weather to sit in it. Thanks.

I stayed in this property with two friends for a girly weekend away. The house is in a fantastic location, with so many shops and bars to choose from within walking distance. The Cotswolds are also a short drive (approx 20 mins) away for exploring the countryside. The house was clean, with comfy beds and always had plenty of hot water. The one (slight) negative was that if you're staying in the front bedroom, it's a little noisy on a Friday and Saturday night when people are leaving the nearby pub, but that soon died down. On the whole a great find!

It's a cozy house. But it's quite noisy from the restaurants and bar on the weekend until midnight.
