Temple Guiting Cottage is an elegant, double-fronted house built in the mellow Cotswold stone that is so synonymous with the area. Dating back to the 1800s, this charming property has been thoughtfully and sensitively transformed by the owners to retain its sense of place and offers an abundance of character features. Sleeping up to ten guests in five bedrooms over three floors, this is a wonderful place for family gatherings. The lovely, spacious garden is enclosed by mature trees, drystone stonewalling and is filled with a variety of plants and the sound of birdsong.

Beautiful home with everything you could need. Clean, comfortable beds and peaceful location. We arrived quite late on our first day, so the key box was really handy. Looks as good as the photos! We did struggle to find it initially - could do with a bigger sign.



Well presented cottage - but some misleading things in the description and photos

The cottage has been well modernised - and is overall high quality. Beds very comfortable. Kitchen design modern and spacious. Heating works well (we went in February)

Here are some things you should know:

1) the photo of the house is misleading. Only one side of the building (the 3 story house spanning between the two chimneys) is the cottage. It is semi attached to the single story accommodation next door which is lived in by the housekeeper. Whilst the housekeeper is discrete (and lovely), this is not as private as we thought it was when we booked. The description does not explicitly say the cottage is detached, but we were certainly led to believe this, and it cleary does not make clear it is a semi-detached dwelling.

2) there are no photos showing what is in front of the house: this is a largegravel parking area shared by this cottage, the housekeeper's cottage next door, and a new house being renovated across the parking area. Again, this location is not as private as we believed it to be, and the lack of photos of this is clearly hiding the reality

3) Whilst the cottage can without doubt sleep 10 in comfortable bedrooms, there is only room for maximum 5 people to sit in the lounge where the fire and TV are. This is not made clear in the description and would be a big problem if your group is bigger than 5 and you wanted to sit together in the evening by the fire watching TV. When we went, the description said a sofa and three armchairs. On our visit there was a sofa (sits three max) and only two armchairs. The room is so snug that it would be difficult to fit a third armchair in, but even if they did, it would only seat 6 in total.

If these things are made clear in the description then guests can rent with eyes open in knowledge of the facts. We enjoyed our stay are were not negatively impacted by these facts - but others may be more than we were. And we prefer renters to just be honest about their properties and allow guests to come and enjoy for what it is, rather than feel a little hoodwinked when we arrive.

Hope that helps




Lovely accommodation in good location. Would recommend for a family holiday.

Lovely cottage, more spacious than images show. 8 abc a baby had a family 3night February break. Bad storms each day, so we were thankful for a cottage that was warm & cosy. Comfy beds and lovely bed linen & towels. Cot & high chair in very good condition.
Could do with more mugs & small plates as not enough for 8 people, if 1 lot in dishwasher.

The house suited our party very well. Everything was to a very high standard. There were a couple of things we thought would enhance the kitchen which we have told the housekeeper. We would very much like to stay again .

Temple Guiting Cottage provided the absolute perfect setting for our Cotswold Christmas holiday. Very spacious and comfortable, it had everything we needed for our family of seven. Everything was very tastefully decorated and it had a lovely cosy feel. The location itself is in the quiet village of Temple Guiting but all the top attractions are relatively close by (Bourton, Stow, Broadway, Sudeley Castle, the Slaughters etc.) We spent most of our time exploring the many beautiful walks in the vicinity. Thoroughly recommend this property and would love to stay here again.

Peaceful, but conveniently located. Our only very minor issues were that the en suite shower and the TV required a certain knack to operate, but we figured these out early enough. Otherwise the house had everything we needed. Excellent breakfast at Guiting Pantry!
