Guest comments

'Truly marvellous. The cottage was out of this world. Everything functioned to perfection and the "instruction folder" made life very easy. The "welcome gift" upon arrival is a lovely gesture, especially after a long, tiring car journey to reach Bretforton. The recipe for the fruit cake was a thoughtful touch and the actual cake was delicious. The cottage had a fantastic atmosphere and we could feel that Susan and Phil have put their hearts and souls into the renovation process. The villagers were extremely friendly and the community shop was a lifesaver. A large range of items including gifts and at a competitive price. We've rented a number of holiday cottages over the years and Bear's Cottage is now at the top of our list as far as value for money, location and holiday satisfaction are concerned'
