We had an Amazing week staying in salamander studio. The studio its self is very modern, comfy and has lovely touches such as under floor heating, nice towels and bed linen. On arrival we were greeted with a loaf of bread, eggs, butter, the normal tea and coffee, biscuits and a bottle of prosecco! The location in the village is great with a local bRead moreakery and pub in walking distance. Aswell as being in a great location to explore the best of the Cotswolds. Thankyou for our stay. Hide

The property is fantastic and in a great location to visit the Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon and Bicester village. The studio is warm and cosy and has a wonderfully equipped kitchen for those dining in. We recommend Bitter and Twisted for any veggies or vegans. Thanks Caroline for an amazing weekend

A beautiful, nicely located studio. Nicely appointed with high quality fixtures & fittings, married to a hint of luxury. Whether Jasper Conran towels, or Jamie Oliver crockery, everything about Salamander Studio was right. A credit to the owner, in a relatively unspoilt area of the Cotswolds. Quiet and sedate; very rare in 2018! Oh, and The George Read morepub in Lower Brailles is to be recommended for food and welcome. And cider! Hide
