You’ll see that we haven’t mentioned Wi-Fi or Satellite TV. That’s because we want you to RELAX. We have a multi-channel television in the main room by the log fire and if you really need Wi-Fi all the local pubs and cafes offer it. But spend most of your time away from everyday cares because that’s what the Cotswolds are all about.
