We had a wonderful few days staying at the summerhouse and exploring the local area. The weather wasn’t great so it was lovely to stay somewhere that was so cosy and comfortable, somewhere we wanted to spend time. The kitchen was really well equipped and we really enjoyed buying local produce from the farm shop and cooking there in the evenings. We really appreciated all the little magic touches, delicious lemon drizzle cake and the wood burner all set up and ready to go. Jen was so prompt in all her communication and all the top tips for things to do and places to eat were invaluable. We were so sad to leave!

Superb apartment. Great views. Very comfortable and attractively decorated inside and lovely spacious garden. Host was lovely, Jen gave us the info we needed, communicated fully, and allowed us as much privacy as we wanted. Great location, small car better than large vehicle for country lanes in the Cotswolds, lots of excellent pubs nearby, and the ridges and valleys are very picturesque. Good farmers markeyt in Stroud.

The summer house is the perfect place to get away from it all. It is so pretty and peaceful and well equipped with everything you should need, from cds DVDs to cooking utensils. The views and nearby walks were lovely, definitely recommended.

Perfect in every way! Spacious and light living space, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and spotlessly clean everywhere. The garden is a delight, and I would imagine a wonderful place to sit in the summer, but then you'd miss out on the log burning stove! A real year round retreat. Jen is the perfect host- responding to queries very quickly, but at the same time respecting guests privacy. Loved it and will be returning soon.

The Homelands Summer Cottage is a beautiful hillside renovated stone barn, surrounded by flower gardens and fruit trees offering a spectacular view of the valley below. It's only a short walk to the local pub, The King's Head, where we ate delicious and sumptuous suppers two of the three nights we stayed. Many points of interest are also within easy reach by car, either uphill or downhill, as is the web of foot paths that wind throughout the Cotswolds. It was a wonderful village retreat, away from the city and the Motorways!

Jen User ProfileJen is a superhost.

Although originally from Wales I moved to this area over 20 years ago after marrying my husband who grew up here. I now think of it as home, it is such a beautiful area , with hills and valleys which make the views so panoramic. I love the outdoors , especially gardening which I find so therapeutic.
It's been a great place to raise our two daughters, rural quiet but still just a short drive to Cheltenham and Cirencester so you have the best of both worlds.
