Emma was easy to communicate with and provided good directions to get to the Pyramid. The Pyramid itself was cosy, quirky and exactly as it looks in the pictures. Thanks for a lovely stay!

A wonderful stay in Emma’s calming, restorative and paradisiacal home. The bed was extremely comfortable, with the light in the morning coming through the yellow blinds to create a cheerful, summery start to the morning (even in October!). She was warmly welcoming, always with a cup of tea on hand, and we enjoyed an incredibly special breakfast of home-cured salmon, stewed quince and berries and scrambled eggs, cooked by her son (an impressive chef!). Emma is flexible, gentle-natured and very, very kind – we’re looking forward to coming back soon for some blissful peace and quiet in the fresh air!

A handwritten note welcomed us to the house which set off a wonderful weekend in the Cotswolds. Emma has a beautiful home, peaceful relaxing and inspiring space with idyllic rural views. We felt really at home. Amazing location for country walks and pub lunch (recommend the Bull in Charlbury). Great rest, would love to come back!
