"Thank you so much for our New Years stay, we absolutely loved Crucis Park. It certainly exceeded our expectations and had everything you could possibly need. The place was absolutely spotless, the pictures do not do it justice. Brilliant hospitality and communication. Thanks again!"
"We stayed in the Cotswold Barn, which definitely had the 'wow' factor, with high, vaulted ceilings and a roaring fire, The beds were really comfy and there was shower gel and shampoo in each of the four bathrooms. We had a really enjoyable time."
"The Cotswold Barn was a fabulous location for a family Christmas. The space has to be seen to be believed and is just stunning! It really is huge, and beautiful with many additional features we were not expecting! All of the bedrooms were clean and comfortable with well appointed bathrooms and the beds extremely comfortable. The catering style kitchen is quite well equipped with plenty of plates, and glasses for everyone, it also includes an industrial ice machine which was used a great deal for Christmas cocktails and keeping the (very useful) ice bucket replenished. The hosts were great, and ready to help with any issue despite being very busy themselves. The welcome and overview on arrival was really thorough. We would definitely stay again!"
"Lovely barn, amazing stay! Perfect for a girly weekend away. Beautiful location, underfloor heating was a definite perk! Well-equipped. Would definitely recommend."
