Thank you so much for for making us feel so welcome in your lovely
We would like to thank you very much for your fantastic hospitality,
delicious breakfast & lovely comfortable room which was perfect in every way.  It
made me want to move back to the country waking up to that beautiful view & sheep &
cows in the fields.

Thank you both for a truly delightful stay in your beautiful home.  We really
appreciated your warm hospitality & for accommodating us at such short notice.

It was a total haven for us, so peaceful & restful, enabling us to totally 'recharge
our batteries' ready for the next installment of family life !

Now we were safely back to Switzerland. We would like to thank you for your great hospitality (including rooms, garden and breakfast) during our stay at Little Gidding. We really enjoyed the beautiful scene in Cotswolds which had us refreshed to forget our hectic daily life. If any opportunity, we would surely come back to you for our upcoming holidays and would recommend your B&B to my friends.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Little Gidding,
and have already recommended you to several other people!

I have been tossing up whether to write something on Tripadvisor knowing that you really don't need the marketing.  I should have thought
to write to you direct.  We so enjoyed our stay with you and it wouldn't have
mattered where in the UK you were situated. Your home is truly lovely and decorated
with great taste.  However it is the two of you who made it so special.  You have
the gift of making people feel welcome and like old friends - great warmth - and we
can't thank you enough for a wonderful stay.  As I predicted yours has been by far
the best B&B so far.

Thank you both so much for making our stay with you so enjoyable.

From the warmth of your welcome (including the woodburner!) to the scones on our
last morning, you were charming, friendly hosts.  The breakfasts were delicious and
we appreciated all the little extra touches that made our time in your beautiful
home such a relaxing place to celebrate our Sapphire Wedding anniversary.

Just a short email to sincerely thank you both for everything you did for us last

We felt welcomed… Nothing was too much trouble for you… The room was spotless and really lovely…
Breakfast was spot on… The location was beautiful. Tony’s directions were faultless..
Your advice was appreciated (Stratford instead of Cheltenham)
As for the Ebrington Arms, both the food and service were great..
In fact we received great service all weekend everywhere we went…
So thank you again for helping to make the weekend a very memorable one.

July 2012

Thank you both so much for making our stay such a special one.  It is funny how so
many days run together into a blur and are forgotten in the course of life... and
then there can be a few days that shine and stay golden in memory.  I treasure our
stay in Little Gidding for your kindness, for the peace and beauty of your home and
garden, as well as that of the surrounding pastures and villages.  I don't know if
it will be possible for us, but, I would love for us to be able to return some day.
I would certainly recommend Little Gidding to anyone thinking of a stay in the
English countryside.

Well...M and myself are STILL raving about our weekend and feeling the benefits of
a restful weekend. Last night M told me that she almost has her friends bored
silly with talk of how lovely it was!
Thank you both so much for your hospitality and kind help with directing our walks
and drive home. You can guarantee that I will be back at some stage.

We had such a wonderful weekend, it was so relaxing so thank you! Our bedroom was
gorgeous with it's amazing views and such a comfortable bed!
Thank you both SO much for all your advice on where to go and what to see; your
instructions for the walk we did on Saturday were so clear we didn't even begin to
get lost (a miracle!) and similarly on our way home we had no troubles finding the
Slaughters and the scenic route you sent us on was so beautiful.
Thanks again for such a great weekend and looking forward to coming back next year!

As we assess our visit to the Cotswolds, we continue to remark on how
important it was to us to have been fortunate enough to stay with you and
use your detailed directions for our daily hikes.  D described it as a
'treasure hunt", looking for the correct stile or tree, to stay on course.
Those directions made it really fun!
We also enjoyed getting to know you both.  Thanks again for everything!

I was saying to E I was going to drop you a message to say how much we enjoyed your company and the JM meeting. From E’s point of view she is not an avid JM fan but does like the weekend away and meeting the Society’s members. So staying with you was a real bonus. Next year we will be staying with you again, if you will have us. Maybe a mid-week break would be good as well as the JM meeting.
The room was superb by the way and I shall be spreading the word amongst our friends.

It must be telepathy at work. I was thinking of writing to thank you for a most wonderful time at your home.  I took some photos to remind me of the fantastic house, garden and views. You are very lucky to have all of that and more.

I wanted to thank you both  for a lovely B&B venue. My mum and I used to go abroad for a few days each year but the flying has become to tiring for her now, so that’s why we decided to stay nearer home!
She really liked the view and your garden, but also the perfect way you looked after us both.

It was my pleasure that I had found your wonderful place on tripadvisor and then we had a chance to stay for two nights.  We very much appreciated your hospitality and kindness.
Tony, thanks for your map reading.  We stopped by in Shipston-on-Stour and I bought some local food there.
Jenny, thanks for your delicious food.  I loved your home made jams. Your plum compote was very special to me.
Again, many thanks for your kindness.

I LOVED staying at your place.  It has a lovely atmosphere which is due to you both obviously enjoying having people stay. I will definitely be back and hope to see you soon.
September 2010

Let me say a warm thank you for all. Both of you were the most perfect hosts. We felt at home and enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere you created in you beautiful house and gardens. We were deeply impressed by so many details of decoration, of colours, the bedclothes, rose-blossoms in each room and many more that add up to the most beautiful and warmest places we’ve stayed in. And the food was wonderful! We still get into rhapsodies about the orange juice, fried egg, mushrooms, home grown tomatoes and berry puree, organic milk – and a little flower of the day. This is arts and crafts in its fullest sense. Thank you!
