“Perfect ...but”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage is lovely every convenience very peaceful and quiet and central to most attractions it would have been a 5star but for the seating in the lounge which is not really suitable for larger people

Thank you for the kind review. Perhaps for a very large person you found the full size two seater sofa a little small if you are used to a three seater, but a three seater might look too large in a cottage.

“Lovely week in a charming cottage”
Reviewed May 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have had a wonderful week in Cotswolds. The cottage was very charming and and well equipped. The conservatory was a very nice place to sit and relax and have a meal. Nice with a little library which also contained a lot of information about the area and walking paths. Location was fantastic, calm and peaceful with a short walk to Stow with nice restaurants and pubs.

“Cozy cottage in a wonderful location”

person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our Easter break. The cottage worked well for four adults (two couples). We particularly loved the fireplace and the garden, with views of the hillside from the rear bedroom and bathroom. An added bonus was how peaceful the village of Maugersbury was, with enjoyable walks directly from the property. Stow on the Wold is an easy 10 minute wander up the road, where you can find boutiques, delis and restaurants. We would certainly recommend the property and its owners, who were incredibly helpful. Thank you.

“Charming cottage with modern facilities”
Reviewed March 26, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is a beautiful period cottage which takes you back into history but has the advantage of modern facilities including internet. Our intention was to "recharge batteries" after a recent bereavement. A wonderful view of the Cotswolds from the windows certainly helped to do that. Stow is only a short distance away and has interesting shops to browse. We especially liked Huffkins for a coffee/snack and had a lovely evening meal at the Coach House. A little further on is one of my favourite places - Bourton on the Water with its Bird World, fascinating shops and tea houses.

“Fab cottage in the most beautiful little village”
Reviewed November 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had such a lovely time in the lovely cottage. Everything you could possible wish for was in the cottage.

The owner of the cottage was superb, always available to answer questions before, during and after.

It really was only 8 minutes walk from Stow-on-the-Wold, so a perfect quite location but close enough to go out and have some fun without having to take the car.

We will be back for sure.

Liked best: How the owner was so lovely and easy to deal with.
Liked least: Internet drops out all the time, so if working, not easy - but NOT their fault. Superfast Fibre broadband is coming to the Cotswolds soon!

“Chilled week”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Excellent cottage.
Fitted our needs perfectly for a chilled week in the Cotswolds.
Cottage has everything you need and more.
The info / library was a welcome bonus.
All in all a very pleasant stay in a quirky cottage.
A few minutes walk up hill to nearby Stow where the town has everything you need.
Excellent base for venturing further afield.
Weather was excellent throughout our stay. Which helped.
Next door neighbours do have access through the garden and passed the conservatory which wasn't a problem but could be for some people?
Facilities are good. Wifi is good.
Garage is excellent!!
No need for the log fire this week but if needed everything is there for you.
Would definitely return in the future.
Thank you

Thank you so much for your review.Just to clarify that a couple who live in London own the cottage. They do not rent it out but do use it themselves some weekends. Of course in these 18th Century cottages in The Cotswolds this was a regular arrangement! I am so pleased that you had a good stay, chill out again sometime!

This was the ideal spot to stay in Stow, very clean and everything that you need was provided it was only a short distance to the center of stow and all the places to eat we had our morning meals at the property and one evening meal. there. Mary Malick called on the 1st night to see if everything was ok We will definitely come back again to the Cotswolds and hope that we can stay there
