This was our 6th trip to Cowley house and we enjoy it thoroughly every time! The house is simply gorgeous and the renovations that Joan and Peter have done have really paid off. We stayed in Appleton room which, as all the rooms we've stayed in, was immaculate and stunning. The breakfast is to die for and the hosts simply... More

My family stayed for 3 nights in two connecting rooms. It was perfect for us! The bed was comfortable, room plenty big enough, quiet, modern bathroom, and fresh tasty breakfast! We enjoyed visiting with the owners and their employees. After we left and came home, we voted this place our favorite B&B on our whole trip!

Our group of 6 women stayed here on a walking trip in the Cotswolds, and Joan and her husband were just terrific. She had homemade biscuits and sherry for us when we arrived after a 12 mile walk and gave us a wonderful recommendation for dinner. She quickly rearranged some of the rooms about which there had been a miscommunication,... More

Such a beautiful old house and comfortable, clean room. We stayed in Grappenhall with a lovely view towards the front of the house. Although the bathroom was a bit small, everything was clean and we needed nothing more. Diane treated us to a delicious breakfast and some entertaining conversation.

In the past winter months we undertook improvements with a new central heating boiler, tanks and pumps in our 400 year old granary section of Cowley House. All has been well until recently when the pump noise began to resonate though a beam impacting on this bedroom. We were able to offer an alternative bedroom and gave a 33% discount... More
