We enjoyed a fantastic week at washbrook Cottage and was made to feel very welcome by Nikki and Nick, and their pets which the kids adored!
The cottage was perfect and had everything you could ask for, and more. Even on a wet day everything was in the cupboards for the kids to bake cakes on the Aga.
Local pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance in Painswick and they were all friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much.
I can imagine it being a wonderful retreat at Christmas too! Will definitely be returning!
We had a fabulous stay at Washbrook Cottage. The cottage is immaculately clean, tastefully furnished and has the most comfortable beds! The cottage garden and main house garden are delightful. It was most relaxing to lie in the garden and listen to the sound of the running water in the brook. The cottage is in an ideal setting only a short country stroll to picturesque Painswick. The children loved the resident cat and horses. Nik was very welcoming and is available onsite if there are any queries. I would highly recommend this accommodation. If we lived in the UK, Washbrook would be a regularly holiday destination.

The owners provided such a warm welcome and clearly understand how important guest services are. The attention to detail is second to none and you really feel relaxed in the beautifully decorated cottage and idyllic surroundings.
We have stayed in a number of UK holiday homes/ cottages in the last 3 years since our daughter was born, and hand on heart , Washbrook Cottage is the best by far. Paul, Rachael and Livi.
We were a family of 2 adults and 3 children (ages 10-15). Very impressed with the interior. It was obvious that no expense was spared. A lot of attention to detail like a welcome food pack and folder with misc details that guest would want to know. The only missing info was food delivery like Pizza, Chinese or Indian, but I think that's only because there was non in the area. Staying here will be great in the colder months as the AGA stove was always on, and the duvet were lovely and thick. Towards the end of the stay, it was about 25oC outside, and really did not need the cottage heating. We could not open the windows and doors to cool the place as their cat kept coming in (we are allergic to animals). In the end we turned the stove down as we were not doing any cooking. Otherwise I think a fan in the cottage in the summer would be helpful. Access to internet, toys and movies has been great for staying in. Great walks on our doorstep. Everyone enjoyed their stay.

We had a family holiday here with 5 adults. The cottage way exceeded our expectations and was easily spacious enough for us all. Every detail of the cottage has been done with love and attention and is of high quality, true luxury! It is in an amazing location within the grounds of Washbrook Farm which you are allowed to explore freely. We particularly enjoyed this. The cottage garden and farm garden are beautiful and full of wildlife. We saw green and normal woodpeckers, a nuthatch, deers, pheasants, not to mention the family pets. Lily the dog and Missy the cat were particularly friendly and even spent time with us, which we loved. The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in and we' ve been in a lot!
