  • We had a great time with Patrick and his wife Kitty, who both made us feel very welcome. A good place to stay to see the Cotswolds!

  • Patrick and Kitty were kind hosts, the room was nice and clean. We got rich breakfast and the maps, guides and hints of Patrick helped us.

    Highworth was chosen because it has good accessibility. Although the region is not marked as highlight of Cotswolds, it is really beautiful (Highworth itself has a nice center the neighbouring Lechlade-on-Thames is also charming + some 13th century churches etc.). Worth to see, it is a nice village for a peaceful walk around, you will not see any tourist.

    We do recommend them.

  • We enjoyed staying with the O'Sheas. The location is excellent for visiting Oxford, and Patrick gave us tips that we used with pleasure about eating places and sights near the house. The breakfast was a treat too.

  • We had a great stay with Patrick and Kitty. They were very friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make us comfortable. (even letting us do laundry, and hanging it out for us so we could get a good start to our day). The bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was good and filling. This was our first experience with airibnb and we were thankful to have such a great experience. Patrick gives excellent value for the money.

    Doing the Guests laundry is not general practice here and was done only as a favour.

  • Nice place and very friendly hosts. The house is in a nice part of town. Patrick and his wife were very friendly and guided us despite reaching late the first day. The breakfast was really nice and Patrick is very knowledgable about things to do in the area and helped plan our holiday.

    There is sufficient parking should you drive to the place and the ensuite ensures privacy to guests. The fast free wifi is a nice bonus.

  • Absolutely lovely stay. Patrick was extremely friendly, gracious, and hospitable - I suggest that anyone staying in or traveling to the Cotswolds area stay at this location.

  • We stayed two nights in this well located B and B. Patrick and Kitty were excellent hosts and the breakfast was terrific. Patrick assisted us greatly by spending time showing us around the nearby district - we would not have found some of the areas little secrets without his assistance. The home was very clean and tidy and these folk are great people. We highly recommend them to stay with.

    Response from Patrick:

    Thank you Vince for your kind words. Vince is a very colourful character who has some great yarns to tell. Ask him to tell about his experiences when he cycled from coast to coast across the U.S.A. It was Great to host you both. 'No worries mate'.

  • We (family of 4 with 2 children aged 16 and 11) stayed 3 nights in April 14 at Patrick's apartment in Highworth. We enjoyed our stay. Patrick and his wife were very hospitable. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. With our rented car we were able to travel around Cotswold within an hour from this apartment.

    We recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Cotswolds with family.
