Whitminster House Self Catering Cottages

Below are extracts from the many appreciative letters and emails we receive for our friendly, characterful cottages throughout the year.

We are delighted to welcome back a high proportion of our visitors and/or their friends & relations on their personal recommendation.

"I would like to thank you on behalf of my family. It was the first time we had all been together for two years, what a weekend we all had - it couldn't have been more perfect. The children just wanted to explore they had so much fun playing hide and seek (don't think they missed not having gaming consoles), nice to see them being children. The cottages are brilliant, you have thought of everything …a very big thank you." Family reunion

"We all enjoyed ourselves very much indeed, it was a perfect house for our needs." Anniversary Celebration

"Many thanks for the warm welcome on Friday and excellent weekend. The house was well prepared for us and clean and tidy, which made for a comfortable visit for everyone......We had a log fire going, the beer was good, the BBQ a success, the fireworks enjoyed by all (except for the very little ones) and plenty of good wine. The weekend exceeded my expectations and I rather think that [some of] the opinions on Trip Advisor are not a fair and balanced view." Family and friends group

"We had a lovely weekend and everyone was very complimentary about the accommodation - it was large with plenty of space, very well equipped ... The location is ideal, with gardens around, on a quiet country lane and close to lovely walks along the canals. It was a lovely break for us all and I have received messages from all of our group enthusing about the cottages. My brother had a fabulous (birthday) weekend - although he does not like surprises in general, I think this weekend was an exception!" Family Birthday Celebration group

"I wish to thank you for the use of Walk House & Walk Farmhouse for the recent long weekend spent in celebration of my Birthday. Some 20 relations gathered. They were from every decade and all expressed that they enjoyed their stay. The properties were both roomy and well equipped. The area was fine for touring, the young ones went go-karting in Gloucester and the older ones found less strenuous places to visit. We had room to sit indoors or outdoors with the children able to play. Pity it snowed in April but I`m not going to blame you because the views were fantastic. In the vernacular of our school children present you are awarded a large Tick and an `Excellent` for effort in caring for visitors." Family Birthday party group
