Excert from the Moreton-in-Marsh Show website
The Show is a traditional one day Agricultural and Horse Show and the leading agricultural event in the County. It is held in the extreme north of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds on the first Saturday in September each year.
The site is old permanent pasture in a parkland setting. There are no permanent show buildings which means the Show is built up in the traditional way with marquees and hurdle pens giving a true country show atmosphere.
Competitions are held for horses, ponies, cattle [including the National Show of Poll Hereford cattle], sheep [including the National Show of Cotswold Sheep], goats, poultry, dogs, homecrafts, flowers, vegetables and even scarecrows.
Around 250 tradestands provide everything from a tractor to a toy and a wide selection of food and drink - both to eat at once and to take home.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you once again for all your help in organising the cottage for the weekend. The surprise party went without a hitch (and no clue that it had been planned!) the cottage was stunning and perfect for our needs - and EVERYONE had a superb time. The guys couldn't stop raving about the place!!
We had a fantastic time at The Minstrels, as always! We were warm, comfortable and totally relaxed and we really enjoyed our stay-many thanks; looking forward to returning in 2013!
We all had a Great time in Moreton-in-Marsh. The cottage was fantastic; it was one of our favourite places to stay it's so close to everything. We would like to stay again sometime. I can't think of anything out of place. In fact it was the best and cheapest places we stayed.
Emma, as always we enjoyed our stay with you. Cottage no.1 remains our favourite though. We especially appreciate the welcome pack with bread milk etc. This means you can always get something to eat when you arrive - even if it's just a cuppa.
We never stay in any rental accommodation other than the Railway Cottages as we consider them to be the best! Will be back down again - sometime soon!!
I wanted to thank you very much for your great support and the really lovely flats, everyone was very complementary. It was so good to have everyone in the same courtyard; our two families could meet and chat before the wedding, really helpful!
I'll certainly be recommending you to anyone who's looking for accommodation in Moreton in the future - definitely one of the best places and best customer care I've come across!
All good wishes for continued success (but not too much work for you!), and maybe we'll pop in if we're in Moreton sometime.
Hi Emma, we had a great time our accommodation was luxurious, spotless and well prepared as usual...many thanks for the welcome hamper.
Hope to see you again next year; Moreton is such a great base to explore from with traditional shopping - well received by the ladies in our group.
We had a fantastic time. We would love to come again. We will certainly enquire about your availability the next time we want to go to the opera round there!
We really enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with all the facilities available.
really can't think of anything that you could have done more, everything was really great. I will hopefully visit again soon.
