Highly recommended if you like a petite and pretty place to stay! Some lovely touches that make you feel really welcome and the build is well thought out and very comfortable. For visiting the family in the area, we'd rather stay at the Matchbox, so we'll be back! Thank you Kate for your great communication and instructions, and to Greg for the welcome.

I returned to the Match Box for the second time and the experience was just as I remembered it (if not better). The Match Box is by far the best Air BnB I have stayed in, every detail has been considered to ensure comfort, luxury and tranquility. The surrounding area is so beautiful, so the Match Box is in a perfect location to explore. I would highly recommend the Match Box and it’s hosts, Kate and Greg. Thank you! We will be back!

The Match Box went above and beyond what my girlfriend and I expected. Every detail of the property had been thought out. The interior design made us feel instantly at home and in a space where we could relax. The bedding, towels and toiletries were of the highest quality. We were impressed by the small kitchen hidden away within a cabinet. A great utilisation of the space which enabled us to cook supper, make breakfast and prepare lunches for the days adventures. When the cabinet was closed the space felt like a living room. Kate and Greg were very welcoming hosts who respected our privacy. I would highly recommend this place for couples, solo travellers or people on a business trip in the area.

I cannot recommend Kate's place enough! She and her husband played concierge, chauffeur, and host to us which is far beyond any experience I've ever had. Plus, this is a good central location to explore the northern part of The Cotswolds! Clean, adorable, beautiful, quiet. Loved!!

We had a wonderful time at the Matchbox. A beautiful well thought out space which was full of high quality amenities. Super clean but homely, it had literally everything we needed. Kate and Greg were extremely personable hosts and made us feel really welcome in their home. Its a great location for exploring the Cotswolds and close to lots of great places but quiet enough to escape it all. We could have quite easily stayed the rest of the week. Thank you for a lovely relaxing break!

This was our first time using Airbnb, and what a great experience it turned out to be. Kate and Greg where great hosts, very warm, welcoming and could not do enough for us. The Match Box is such a perfect place for couples to retreat to whilst spending time in the area and we found it to be the perfect self catering haven. Well equipped throughout, extremely clean and well kept, and a comfortable nights sleep. Would happily recommend The Match Box, Kate and Greg to anyone.

Greg and I are Gloucestershire born and bred, but moved to our home in Worcestershire 23 years ago and love it! We feel fortunate to be able to look out of our windows and see fields from the front and back so our home has a rural feel, but still close to all the beautiful Cotswo…
