Jo and Johnny, thank you both for welcoming us into your home and providing such a comfortable stay, we enjoyed every minute! for potential bookers and viewers of this feedback… Aylworth Manor is your quintessential high society Cotswolds country estate. You’re welcomed and greeted at the door every time you come and go like you’re family, the rooms are large and super comfortable, the views are textbook Cotswolds, breakfast is exactly what one needs for a beautiful day ahead, the walks in the surrounding countryside are a perfect way to soak up everything nature has to offer, and the estate itself is simply lovely. It was a bonus that the Manor is tucked away from everything and yet only 10-30 mins drive to most of the must-see places and public transport.
Jo and Johnny’s home is warm, calm and quite simply beautiful. The minute you walk through the door, I was greeted with a cup of tea and a sophisticated chat. My visit was short notice and involved heavy snow conditions – which both Jo and Johnny helped by navigating my trips out and offered great recommendations for pub dinners. Their home is kept to high standards, and my room felt elegant and had some great personal touches – such as robes, high-quality bedding, and much more- but I won’t ruin all the surprises! It was a challenge leaving the cosy sheets in the mornings. However, the delightful breakfast served on beautiful fine bone china made it all the easier. Five stars from me! I want to thank you for my special few days in the Cotswolds. I can not wait to come back and catch up!
This cottage/granary was amazing, even better than the photos. It was spacious and clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The location is great for exploring the Cotswolds and the hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
The Granary is the most amazing place to stay. Beautiful location in stunning grounds – an ideal place to explore the Cotswolds. Jo & her husband were lovely hosts. The Granary is fully equipped with everything you need & super dog friendly. The log fire was an absolute bonus & the Wi-Fi is super fast. Highly recommend & will definitely return
This is an amazing country manor and we were well looked after by the owners and the staff -who were all very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was high quality served on bone china and silverware. Good pubs a walkable distance away. Our room was spacious. Bed comfortable. We were given plenty of help planning our day trips.
Our hosts, Johnny and Jo, were casual, warm and welcoming. They made us feel comfortable and at home and were generous with advise on places to visit and things to do. I wish we could have stayed longer!.
Stayed at The Granary for a weekend in a self catering barn conversion adjacent to the Manor House. On arrival met by Jo. This is a lovely property in a lovely location only about 15mins from Cheltenham and 10 mins from Bourton. Ate at the Black Horse at Naunton which was excellent. Our only issue was we had a fly problem which we were told only occurred for a few weeks at this time of year. As a result we left a day earlier. Take care as there is a live wire by fence on the drive but no sign and we were not informed and one of our little dogs hurt himself on it. Otherwise lovely property.

Wonderful countryside manor in the Cotswolds with beautiful gardens. Enormous room. Huge comfortable bed. Large bathroom. Such a change from the pokey rooms in the cities.
A very lovely place with great accommodation and wonderful staff.
“Great base for exploring the surrounding areas.”
Always nice to come home to each evening.

“Apart for the rain non stop we had a really nice break, the Granary was set in lovely surroundings, there was everything you could need, plus there is so much to do in the Cotswolds too much for one week.”
So we will be definitely be going back there.

“We stayed in the self catering converted stables.”
The cottage was very comfortable and suitable for a family or two couples. The location is ideal for day trips to Cheltenham, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon and of course all the beautiful Cotswolds villages. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back in the future. Thank you Johnny and Jo!

Everything you could ask for in a classic country manor house with the warmest hosts imaginable – amazing walking and wildlife, and a breakfast that you can’t wait to get up for! I’ve stayed twice and will be back again.

I had the most delightful two night stay at Aylworth Manor. The house is stunning – charming interior, large and spacious bedrooms and beautiful position set amongst their garden and the Cotswolds hills. The breakfast was very delicious with the option of locally sourced and organic cooked breakfast and continental style freshly made croissants, cereal and yogurt. There was even the option of chicken or goose eggs! Both the hosts are extremely charming and helpful. All in all, I could not recommend this place more.

“This holiday let is absolutely beautiful, and in the most stunning grounds.”
The rooms were all furnished tastefully and there was a lot of space. The directions listed by the property were very accurate and there was ample space to park. The owners were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this property.
