Excellent spot to stay in the Cotswolds, with the Slad valley being easy to reach but still away from it all. The accommodation is basically the top two floors of Jonathan's old mill, but with ground floor access as it is set into the hill. Everything you need is available (washe…

We absolutely loved our short stay at Jonathan's beautiful place. It was just as, if not even more, beautiful than in the pictures! Jonathan was extremely easy to communicate with, providing us with detailed directions on how to get there, lots of recommendations of things to do,…

We loved the atmosphere and quiet of the accommodation. Well equipped and accurately described. Was worth the venturing down narrow lanes to get there. If given the chance we would return and recommend.

Thanks Anne. Just to make it clear, the wifi glitches didn't relate to our own wifi; simply that you were in Slad and couldn't find a wifi signal in the countryside until you got to The Woolpack and couldn't access our detailed directions online on your iPad. Thank you for highlighting the fact we live in a rural area where, if you don't have cell data roaming package bolt-on to your phone/wifi carrier in the UK, you can't rely solely on technology. Whenever we travel, as we did recently in Spain and France, we ensured we had iPhone/iPad access as well as a physical map in the car for such eventualities as you experienced. We'll make sure this is made crystal clear that this is our recommendation for any future guests. Hope you have a super time in Spain and Italy.

Beautiful part of Slad. Very good pre visit communication. If you are 6ft plus , the staircase to the upper bedroom ( largest with lovely view) is very difficult . The smaller bedroom is tight with no luggage storage , thus use main area . As the main sitting room is in fact the…

Response from Jonathan:
Jacqueline is correct in saying that the space is too limited in the downstairs bedroom to have a luggage stand. There is however plenty of wardrobe space. There would be room for a luggage stand in the top bedroom (plus plenty of wardrobe space) which we may consider as a useful addition. Ultimately, Jacqueline chose not to sleep in the top bedroom. Jacqueline is however incorrect in describing our living room as 'the third bedroom'. Our listing shows it to be a common space with a double sofa bed and this is exactly what it is with two armchairs, several tables, cabinets, a TV and a sofa (which turns into a bed for those wishing to sleep there). Jacqueline is unfortunately also incorrect in stating that our kitchen is subject to 'some refurb work'. What she is referring to is a former cooker flue void measuring 6 inches by 4 inches behind the cooker hood to the left-hand side high up in the corner which is blocked temporarily with rock wool and a polythene membrane to allow the area to breath (it being very important to do so with older buildings). Quite what Jacqueline was doing getting up there to inspect the void is unclear. The kitchen is otherwise fully equipped and we use it on a regular basis when we do not have guests. Jacqueline has unfortunately also misrepresented the space in our home overall as 'tight', which is at odds with our description, the photographs taken by Airbnb themselves and all other reviews from guests. You need to be over 6 foot 3 inches before you need to duck slightly going up the spiral staircase to the top bedroom. There is a beam in that bedroom, as is shown in the photos. As a 17th century former woollen mill, this is not out of character. We are disappointed that our home did not meet with Jacqueline's expectations on this occasion and wish her and her relatives the very best with their travels elsewhere for the future.

Dad to a little Stroudie, vintage Stroudie himself, married to a feisty Geordie and wouldn't have it any other way. Love living in a 17th century former woollen mill, which we are slowly renovating. Love laughter and good story telling!
