Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about Old Fox Cottage below:

The Old Fox Cottage was charming with no detail forgotten. We absolutely loved it. Everything was in perfect order. It looked picture perfect online and was even more impressive when we opened the front door. We loved every minute!

Adam was an outstanding host. We really couldn´t have asked for a more perfect experience and such lovely hospitality. We can´t wait to return!

Unique accommodation and fabulous service. We were so happy with the hamper and the goods provided which meant we didn´t have to rush out to buy goods for breakfast before the shops closed.

We feel very privileged to have stayed in such a beautiful place and have recommended both the cottage and Unique Home Stays to all of our friends and family! The cottage accommodated perfectly for our baby and the love and care that had been put into it was obvious. Many thanks!

There are beautifully thoughtful and personal touches throughout this lovely cottage.

Old Fox Cottage was such a treat for my 40th birthday, and was just out of this world. I love the look of all the cottages and keep looking at where to visit next, but Old Fox Cottage will always be special. A perfect retreat that I hope to visit again soon. The whole service from start to finish has been outstanding.

Old Fox Cottage is the best self-catering property that we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in lots)! The price was also very good.

The property was just perfect and Adam/Lois could not have tried harder to make our stay so special. It was the most relaxed and comfortable break we´ve had for a very long time. It honestly felt like home.

Fantastic, all of the lovely touches were fabulous, including the welcome hamper and the cottage was stocked with all the mod cons. Really excellent

Warm welcome from your lovely neighbours. Cottage so warm & welcoming. Thank you very much for all the special little touches. Great food in The Fleece and very kind hosts. Everything perfect. Hope to return.

Thank you once again for a lovely relaxing stay at Old Fox Cottage, this was our fourth and we still find the cottage and village as charming as the first. A big thank you to Lois & Adam.

We booked Old Fox Cottage for a honeymoon getaway. We were blown away by the beauty of the cottage and surrounding areas. Neither of us had visited this area before, so it has been an absolute pleasure spending such a special time here together. The cottage has been the perfect base and the hospitality shown by Lois & Adam has been wonderful. Rose petals on the bed and the hamper were greatly appreciated. We shall be sure to visit again.

This beautiful homely cottage far surpasses any I have stayed in. Cosy, charming and so in keeping with a little British cottage. Adam, thank you for all of your great recommendations. Fabulous host. We would love to come back, Summertime, Winter, Spring and Autumn.

Danke! In German we would say ‘Klein, aberfein’. It means ‘a little house, but the best´. So lovely decorated. Adam & Lois, you do a good job. Thank you very much.

We’ve stayed in a lot of fabulous cottages, but none with such wonderful attention to detail – simply incredible! Our daughter Penelope has been learning to ride her bike in the Fleece’s orchard. We’ve had a blissful stay; our daughter and her best friend have adored it.

I live on a big long stretch of ocean surf beach in Australia – Sunshine Coast – Queensland and this is my idea of the perfect alternative to my perfect living space at home. So much attention to detail! Warm and lovingly decorated. Top quality everywhere I looked. Thank you so much for a little piece of heaven.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage; it was the most relaxing weekend away from the crazy pace of London! Despite the weather we managed lots of lovely trips out and about and even a pint at the Fleece (quite an achievement with a 3 year old and an 18 month old!!). Everything was perfect and we will definitely return.

Thank you for a relaxing and comfortable week. We had everything we needed and more in the cottage and appreciated all the special little touches. The property is well equipped and beautifully furnished. Despite the mixed weather we were able to enjoy much of the local area – Broadway, Chipping Campden, Evesham – and one longer trip to Kelmscott Manor. Eating out was easy and meals of a high standard. Loved the Fleece, The Round of Grass does a good midweek carvery. Very glad we came.

We had a great holiday in your lovely cottage. Had a great Halloween here with the children. The villagers are really lovely and The Fleece Inn is really good. Hopefully we will return soon!

A lovely cottage for our first family holiday. Thank you Adam & Lois for making our stay here so relaxing and enjoyable. We couldn’t have asked for more. We loved the chocolate cake. Thomas loved the Fleece Inn more! We look forward to coming back.

Fantastic! Thank you so much. Cottage is perfect and welcoming... The Fleece Inn is awesome. Love it around here, hopefully we will be back... Can’t tell too many friends though as it will never be available again!

Very pretty Cotswold cottage. Extremely high standard!

We cannot fault the booking procedure. All aspects of our stay were covered and all our questions answered promptly. Old Fox Cottage was idyllic with every home comfort all as described. We had a great break.

The property was in an excellent location and was furnished to a very high standard.

Beautiful cottage in a lovely location

Just lovely. Many thanks for everything. Now feeling much more relaxed than when we arrived ...

Thank you Lois for the use of your beautiful cottage. A perfect getaway break with the added bonus of the beauty of the Cotswolds in the snow. We hope to come again sometime!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay to celebrate our son´s 1st Birthday! It´s been amazing & we are sad to leave. Good Luck with everything & we will be back!

A great week away, no pressures. Lovely cottage, ideal position for exploring the area. Did 3 of the walks on the AA cards - all very good even though somewhat muddy!

Before I came here, I was worried that a week´s stay might be too long...... sadly, it was too short. A great Christmas.

Lovely, lovely relaxing stay! Thank you very much

Gorgeous place to start our honeymoon! A beautiful cottage! Thank you so much!

We booked this weekend to celebrate being together for 10 years – but ended up celebrating our engagement!! What a beautiful cottage – it was home from home and a lovely cosy tranquil setting to be able to ring all our loved ones with our news and for it to set in!! We will always remember Old Fox Cottage. Thank you for making it such a memorable weekend. The cake was an added bonus!

It has been our first trip to the Cotswolds and we really enjoyed it. Great landscape, great accommodation and great food. The kids very much enjoyed watching plenty of pheasants. Loved the attention to detail in the cottage. We will come back!

We have been able to truly relax and enjoy everything in this beautiful area. There is nothing in the cottage that hasn’t been thought of and we loved all the quirky little extras. We definitely hope to visit this beautiful cottage again in the future.

We have had such a wonderful weekend in Old Fox Cottage. We all loved the little touches that made us feel so at home. Lois thank you for being so helpful with our little queries. We will all be back.

What a beautiful bolthole. Old Fox was just perfect for a mini-break. We kept the children amused during the day with trips to Warwick Castle, Drayton Manor and Cadbury World and all four of us enjoyed a trip each evening to the Fleece. Lois thanks for making Halloween so special for them.

This is a little haven, perfect location and environment to get away from it all and recharge the batteries. Beautiful cottage. Would recommend Market Pantry in Broadway. Thank you for a wonderful week away.

Our second time at ‘Old Fox Cottage’ and it will not be our last. Thank you Lois for everything. We have had a perfect weekend relaxing in the cottage, and strolling over to the Fleece for a bit of food and wine is highly recommended. Thank you once again, we look forward to coming back soon.

Many thanks for a lovely relaxing stay in your cottage. We had a wonderful time and everything was just perfect. Our little boy felt very at home with all the little characters around the house …. And met many new friends with them! Thanks again for a great stay.

Great cottage and the good weather continued. Lots of good walks to Willersey and the Littletons and very quiet and peaceful. Lots of ‘Olde Worlde’ atmosphere in the Fleece. The cottage garden and conservatory were all very beautifully done and were appreciated. Good Luck Lois for the future.

This lovely cottage fits the bill perfectly, and what a glorious week of sunshine (maybe the only one this year!) we have had. It is very peaceful and restful here and we have enjoyed waking to no noise other than the birds. The cottage is very well equipped even for Thomas who has enjoyed learning to do steps on the little one in between the kitchen and the hall. Thanks for a great stay.

We wanted a quiet and serene place to get away and relax and this cottage couldn’t be more perfect. It is so lovely and cosy – the perfect place to just relax and unwind. We’ve so enjoyed staying here and touring around the Cotswolds. Absolutely beautiful and we hope to be back one day in the future. Thank you Lois for this lovely slice of heaven!

Thanks for a lovely stay in this beautiful little cottage. We found a lovely walk round Stanton and Broadway, passing Snowshill lavender fields and Broadway Tower and some beautiful poppy fields – We would highly recommend this! Has been great to watch the Olympics without the bustle of London!

We had a great time at the cottage and felt a lot of care had been taken to make our stay as comfortable as possible - we really appreciated all the little touches that made the accommodation special

How amazing to be so near the fabulous National Trust Fleece pub. This was the best of a number of UHS properties we have stayed in. Bijou but absolutely perfect. Fabulous service from UHS as per usual. A beautiful cottage ideally located for the National Trust pub. Gorgeous hamper - thank you.

Thank you for an amazing pre-honeymoon stay at this amazing, romantic cottage.  A visit we will truly remember for the rest of our lives, from the gliding lesson at the local airport hangers, to motor trike ride around the Cotswolds with Rusty.  Not forgetting the luxury and home from home comfort of this wonderful cottage.  Thank you

Lois is an outstanding host, thinks of every detail, is kind, warm and super professional

Beautiful cottage & village.  Everything has exceeded our high expectations.  Wish we could stay longer

We have had an amazing stay in your beautiful cottage, everything is so lovely.  We would recommend the ´Ebrington Arms´ at Ebrington to eat, and the ´Churchill Arms´ near Paxford.  Do book, both fantastic

Thank you very much; the property was lovely and we had a great holiday!

We had an absolutely wonderful few days here at Old Fox Cottage.  We adored the cottage and felt like it was a real home from home.  So many cute and thoughtful touches.  We will be recommending  Old Fox to friends and family as a perfect bolt hole.  Thank you for making our weekend so perfect in every way.

Beautiful cottage and surroundings.  Everything you could ever need.  Lovely relaxing break.  Will be sure to recommend

Had a wonderful weekend at Old Fox Cottage.  The house exceeded expectations in every way.  Places of note that you must visit when staying here are: Chipping Campden – a stunning Cotswold Village for afternoon tea. The Slaughters (Upper & Lower)-  for a lovely walk along the river.  We would love to come back and wish we could take the Cottage home

What a beautiful place, the cottage is fantastic.  A wonderful stay in a fabulous cottage. Enjoyed every minute and wish we didn’t have to leave!

Old Fox Cottage is a real Cotswold jewel.  Great location, such a comfortable stay.  Such a cute cottage with a big ‘wow’ factor.  Loved the holiday from start to finish.  Thank you!!

When I came to Old Fox Cottage my head was a mess,
Shoulders felt heavy from too much stress.
From the moment I stepped inside the door,
I felt my heart lift; my spirit began to soar.
For this place is so calming, it’s quaint and bright,
With so many personal touches it’s a pure delight.
Your act of kindness at letting us stay,
Is one I won’t forget, it’s hard to repay.
Everything is perfect, you’ve a natural touch,
So from Melanie and I thank you so much

Oh my God!  I want to move here.  Old Fox Cottage is my perfect ideal home.  Every detail has been thought about to hooks, kitchen utensils, even the garden is gorgeous.  There is everything you need and it is presented beautifully.  I came to chill with friend for a birthday and you can’t help but feel totally relaxed here.

Celebrated my birthday with some close friends at the Old Fox Cottage. Wanted a location to relax, rest, laugh and have some lovely food.  The Cottage is gorgeous, absolutely full of beautiful ornaments, pictures and all of a high quality; a lot of thought has gone into making your stay 10/10. Recommend the White Swan in Broadway for scrummy food.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. It was the perfect cosy, romantic getaway.  The cottage is truly perfect with all the homely comforts you could want

This place is a thin slice of heaven. Everything you need is just at hand. We loved the cottage and the village. In the words of Arnie Schwarzenegger ‘I’ll be back!!

An absolute charming beautiful cottage in a village to die for! Love it so much and don’t want to leave.  Thanks for a stay in this lovely place.  Wonderful weather to boot!  All in all a perfect place for a 30th Wedding Anniversary break.  Definitely want to come again too.  FAB!

There didn´t seem to be anything that hadnt been thought of by the property owners when furnishing the property, and when the lights tripped one night, I called Lois and she was very helpful and friendly and we had a lovely chat. We had a very enjoyable stay which we would love to repeat one day.´ 

The property was absolutely lovely. Beautifully presented and facilities in terms of entertainment (top films, ipod etc) are the best I have ever stayed in so please pass my comments on to the owner.

We spent Christmas at Old Fox Cottage and could not have chosen a more perfect place.  Lois made us feel so welcome and had decorated the house beautifully.  We were able to totally relax in this cosy and comfortable house with everything we needed catered for.  We were warmly welcomed by the community on Christmas morning, sharing soup from the Fleece as we listened to the brass band in the square.  We love the house, thanks Lois.

Parting is such sweet sorrow... so much so that we booked our next stay already! Lois, your warm welcome was the perfect start to our wonderful weekend.  We felt so much at home in your cottage, as well as in the village.  Thanks for everything and see you soon!

Lovely cottage and we have had a wonderful rest.  Lois has thought of everything.  The village is very friendly and the RSC, Stratford upon Avon is well worth the journey.  Restaurant was very good too.  Wish we could stay longer.

Great Cottage, great welcome, great stay, great holiday! Will strongly recommend to friends and family looking for a quiet break.

Fab cottage! Lovely and warm, and so very well equipped.  We´ve had a great mid-week winter break.  Lovely villages and scenery.  Sad to leave!

Absolutely beautiful cottage, very comfortable and everything we could possibly need was provided.  Perfect romantic break.

Despite being snowed in...we were happily trapped in this little gem of a cottage!  Bretforton is the only way to slow down! Thank you Lois.

We have had a relaxing break in a beautiful Cottage and lovely village.

Absolutely beautiful Cottage, and a perfect Valentine´s week hideaway; it was so perfect that we got engaged here! Many happy memories, we´d love to come back.

It was again a most wonderful stay. Lois´s hospitality and attention to detail is great, thanks to the Unique Home Stays team too.

What a heavenly weekend in Old Fox Cottage, from the moment Lois welcomed us we knew relaxation was the way!  We recommend the Crown & Trumpet in Broadway for a good pint or 2 in a traditional pub.  Then over the road to the Swan for the best meal by far.  All ye who enter here will not be disappointed by the extreme efforts of Lois to cater for every need.

Lovely, fabulous, beautiful! We Loved it! The Fleece Inn is a must! As was visiting Broadway and other Cotswold Villages. We shall be back! Just a totally divine weekend!

Old Fox Cottage was wonderful and the owner had thought of everything; we didnt need anything. She had made us so welcome, and the cottage felt very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. All in all we had a lovely time.

The property was simply perfect. We were not expecting a welcome hamper and enjoyed its contents.

We’ve had a great few days in Old Fox Cottage. The weather was perfect, the cottage was perfect. Loved every minute of our stay. It makes such a difference when you have a comfortable, attractive, well thought out place to stay. Thank you Lois.

Such a glorious weekend! A lovely, cosy, homely cottage and much exploring of the local countryside thanks to the use of the two excellent bikes. Everything is catered for here in your wonderful cottage. Thank you so much.

Fabulous cottage, fabulous time and fabulous weather. Wonderful experience.  Let us know if you ever want to sell. Many thanks.

This is a short honeymoon break for us following a fantastic wedding. The cottage, the village, the weather and the surrounding area exceeded our expectations and we had a fabulous time

A marvellous visit and more enjoyable than the 4 of us could say. A beautiful Cottage with all to hand & everyone gave us a lovely welcome - cottage & village! We leave all behind us with sadness! Thank you so much & hopefully we will be back another time!

Thank you so much Lois for creating the perfect little hideaway – we wanted somewhere to hibernate for the weekend & Old Fox Cottage enabled us to do that. The place is decorated so beautifully & has everything you need & more! An extra little touch from Lois – a card & wine for our anniversary, Thank you. We’ll be back!!

We have had a lovely break. For us, the novelty of being able to walk to the pub and shop was brilliant – a very well placed cottage. Our meal at the Seagrave was good with excellent service. Thank you for all your help, much appreciated.

What a beautiful cottage & a lovely, lovely place to spend our honeymoon… We’d love to come back, thank you

Had a lovely Easter break in your fab cottage. Thank you so much for our easter eggs, a really lovely touch. Really enjoyed Broadway, Chipping Camden, Hidcote gardens and the Cotswolds Farm. Felt very much at home in your cottage would love to stay again, thank you.

The stay exceeded all our expectations. Very warm welcome by the owner, had a lovely time. Really enjoyed it

A delightful week spent in this wonderful cottage. We didn’t know what to expect from this area but have found it very interesting indeed. Broadway, Chipping Camden and Hidcote should be considered a ‘Must’ for any future Holiday Makers. Thank you for making the cottage so comfortable, can’t think of anything we needed that wasn’t here

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely, little cottage. We really needed a relaxing holiday with all the home comforts and ‘Old Fox Cottage’ really fulfilled that! We enjoyed a great Sunday lunch at the ‘Swan’ Broadway and a great Set lunch at Tattersalls Bistro, Broadway Hotel. We have really enjoyed the garden a Hidcote Manor!

A beautiful cottage which exceeded our expectations, wish we could have stayed longer! Chipping Camden, Broadway are well worth visiting as well as Snowshill. Thank you so much for the card, wine and cake for my birthday such a lovely surprise and Much appreciated, we look forward to staying again

This trip to England has been a dream of a lifetime! It is our first time here. Staying at Old Fox Cottage this weekend has been unbelievable, the quaint cottage and town is like something from a movie. We couldn’t have asked for more. Our journey now continues to London before we leave for Home (Cincinnati Ohio), thank you for making this such a memorable experience. The Cotswolds and Old Fox Cottage hold many special memories

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful village in a wonderful part of England! We had everything we needed for both relaxing and active weekend, with Old Fox at Bretforton the perfect base to explore the area. Rest assured it will be Very highly recommended

We have really enjoyed our stay here and made the most of it! All home comforts and wonderful villages to visit. We Love the Cotswolds!! Thanks Lois – sorry we didn’t get to meet you. Hope you like Mr Fox

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, amazed by the attention to detail paid throughout, three night s was definitely not enough. Perfect little hideaway. Thank you for the gorgeous hamper

We have had a perfect honeymoon in a beautiful cottage. Our only regret was that we did not stay for longer! Thanks Lois for the hamper and all the additional touches that made the stay so special. We will definitely be returning ourselves as well as recommending to family and friends. Thanks!

We were rather daunted at the prospect of coming away with our three week old son, but as soon as we arrived at Old Fox Cottage our fears dissipated. It is beautifully presented, lovingly furnished and spotless. We were made to feel so welcome with a hamper of luxurious goodies, card and delicious chocolate cake. The Village is picture postcard perfect and the surrounding area sublime. Sunset from Broadway Tower was a spectacular and serene end to our short break. We also recommend lunch by the river at the Anchor Inn in Wyre Piddle – off the beaten track. Thanks for everything – We hope to return soon!

Lovely property well presented and great location. The welcome by the owner Lois was really appreciated by us.

A beautiful property, so well thought out and every little touch seemed to be thought of. We would definitely return to this cottage in the future

The property was lovely and had a real homely feel to it. The owner Lois was really helpful and gave us lots of useful information and suggestions on the area.

The cottage is simply beautiful, and we all felt relaxed and at home as soon as we stepped through the door. Every aspect of the house has been done to such high standard and is a delight to spend time in. we are almost envious of anyone else staying there as we wanted to keep it for ourselves!
