  • Sweet little cottage in the countryside. Rowena is a great hostess -- quick to reply to any messages and full of advice and suggestions for things to do. There are good pubs within walking distance. Having a car is definitely a plus if you want to do much exploring in the area beyond the immediate fields, though, we managed without one. While most of our walks were cut short by flooded fields, it was nice to explore the area and great to come back to the cottage to warm up with tea, brownies, and a good foot soak.

  • Great place to stay ☺️

    Anthony2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful visit! The cottage was well appointed and spotlessly clean and comfortable. Rowena was a very pleasant and helpful host. The local area is quiet and beautiful but not too far away from amenities. This was a perfect, quiet, relaxing and comfortable stay and is highly recommended for those wanting a ‘getaway’ from the big cities.

    Ian2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was a lovely couple of nights stay that we had at Rowena’s place. The cottage was lovely and very cosy. Everyone on the estate was very friendly and we couldn’t ask for a better time!

    Anton2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to retreat to. Friendly welcome and beautiful space.

    Sarah2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We can highly recommend this place. Everything was perfect. We stayed there in December : The property was lovely and warm and I loved the fact that there was a bath with plenty of hot water: Great for after going on a hike across the fields. The homemade brownies were scrummy. The lodge is sparkling clean. As I have said, just perfect.

    Margaret2019-12-31T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to Castle Mews, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Castle Mews is a hidden gem of a cottage, at the end of a short row of cottages tucked away down a gated passageway, right in the heart of the lovely market town of Cirencester. In Roman times Cirencester was known as “Corinium”, when it was the second largest town in Britain, a history that is celebrated in its local museum. Nowadays, Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswolds, enabling it to support a wide range of pubs, restaurants and shops, all housed in beautiful honey-coloured Cotswold stone buildings. The town is surrounded by stunning countryside and beautiful Cotswold villages, as well as being an ideal base for visiting further afield places, such as Bath, Oxford or even a day trip into London. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Castle Mews is very peacefully located, down a gated passageway off Castle street, a beautiful street in the heart of Cirencester. There is a lovely enclosed courtyard garden at the front of the cottage, which leads to the front door. The door opens into the open plan ground floor: Living/dining area: The relaxing living and dining space contains a comfy sofa, an armchair and a wooden dining table, with seating for two. Discretely hidden away in a wooden cabinet is a small SMART TV and DVD player; Kitchen area: The lovely kitchen area is very well laid out and contains a two ring induction hob, electric oven, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and a washing machine/tumble dryer. Stairs lead up from the living area to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom: A lovely eaves room, with oak beams and a ledge and brace door, which contains a king size bed; Dressing room: A nice additional space, which contains a sofa, a dressing table and a free standing towel rail; Bathroom: Contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. Returning downstairs, a stable door leads out from the kitchen area to a small, enclosed courtyard garden at the back of the cottage, which contains a table and two seats. The garden area at the front of the cottage is larger and is a beautiful place to sit outside and relax, containing two comfy chairs and a small table.
    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade".
  • Fantastic place!

    Kyle2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • We loved to stay at this cosy cottage! All you need is available. (Kitchen, pots, cuttlery, etc.) It was very clean and central located. Pubs, shops, restaurants are within minutes to be reached. We booked the cottage last minute for a New Years break and the booking went smootlhy and very quick! so all in all a perfect holiday getaway for exploring Oxford, Bath and the Cotswolds! :-)

    Jasmin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended since I really love the house and it has everything I need. The location is also perfect, Tesco is just opposite the street and besides there is so many restaurants and coffee shop. Super!

  • Fantastic and central spot in Cirencester! Lovely little touches and will definitely return!

    Philip2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a little gem. Right in the middle of Cirencester but tucked away. Very stylish and spotlessly clean with everything you could want.

  • Beautiful cottage in a beautiful town. Perfect for walking in to Bourton or for using as a base to travel from. Thank you very much!

    Oliver2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage just off the high street in the middle of Bourton-on-the-Water. The cottage is very charming but should warn about the steep stairs! The bedrooms were cosy and the location can’t be matched. We had no problems checking in our out and communications with the host were very clear. Would definitely recommend if you don’t have mobility issues or giant suitcases.

    Maiko2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • It is lovely and warm. we have a wonderful time.

    Jiang2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just returned home after a fabulous long weekend at Chapel Cottage. The house is beautiful, cosy and a perfect base for exploring The Cotswolds. Little touches like the chocolates were a welcome surprise with out first cuppa! Thank you to Carol & Nick for all the information provided and for letting us stay in this beautiful home. Precious memories made and we are already planning a return trip.

    Michelle2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chapel cottage is in a wonderful location. Stylish, decor throughout, all the amenities you could need and the beds have the most comfortable mattresses and soft linen.Cosy, comfortable. In the heart of the village if you want to explore, but once inside it feels so secluded. A really wonderful cottage.

    Mateja2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nick and Carol were so helpful and quick to respond if we had any questions during our stay. The cottage was so great, just as pretty as the pictures, and the cake on arrival was such a sweet touch. The notes that were sent beforehand were so helpful as well. Would definitely highly recommend. Bourton-on-the-Water was just slightly more touristy than we were hoping for.

    Georgina2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic cottage in an idyllic setting, literally 2 minutes from the high street- This is a warm and cosy place and thoughtful touches make a stay here extra special.

    Timothy2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very tidy and lovely little cottage equipped with everything you need. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. Great location. We had a wonderful stay!

If you want to get away from the stresses of every day life then this is the place to stay.

Andrew and Vicky were attentive to our needs and went above and beyond providing games for us to play. 9 lives the chicken was a fantastic wake up call. We will definitely be staying again!! There are lots of natural beauty spots locally to see but the view from the cabin takes some beating.

Located in the heart of the stunning "Five Valleys" region of the Cotswolds, Stroud is well known for its bohemian vibe and eclectic mix of shops, with Jasper Conran describing the weekly Farmers' Market held in the town as "the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds".

Butterrow Gate is also well placed for exploring further afield, with the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham both within easy reach.

The fully stocked bar serves choice wines, beers and aperitifs to complement the extensive menu; Sorrento Italian Restaurant (www.sorrentostroud.co.uk): The menu offers superb presentations of traditional favourites, such as pizzas, pasta, succulent steaks, chicken and fish dishes, all served in a relaxing, friendly environment. Stroud also has a wide range of food retailers, including an award winning Farmers' Market, held every Saturday.
  • Great, special and quirky space. Amenities were great and the place was sparkling clean, would definitely recommend and stay again. I imagine it would be spectacular in the summer. Jut watch out for stepping right onto quite a busy road where traffic comes roaring past. Parking was also tricky.

    Lou2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Property was lovely and perfect for a few days away. Tip: don't park opposite the property as you will get a note from one of the neighbours, also take your own milk as this isn't provided. Great stay and great location.

    Joanne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated, great homely feel and everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

    Anna2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay at the cottage and it’s more beautiful in real life with an amazing view. Would definitely recommend and return. Not much off street parking but we didn’t mind parking down the hill and walking up. Worth a visit for sure!

    Eleanor2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful winter break at Butterrow gate. The property is gorgeous, very quirky and has everything you need. It is also clean and well presented. The location is great for exploring Stroud and other local villages. The tips provided by the host were perfect. We loved the farmer’s market, the antiques mill and local walks. It is worth noting that the property is on a busy road and you may be kept awake by traffic if you are a light sleeper. We slept like logs from all of the walking! Xx

    Lucy2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed at the cottage for a week while exploring the Cotswolds. It was such a lovely place to stay. It is exactly as it looks in the pictures small and super cozy and wonderful. We had a really good time. The place was in a good location if you had a car to explore all the surrounding towns. Without a car the cottage it a little but above the town and therefore is a bit less accessible. Contact with character cottages was easy, check in and out was no issue. The only negative feedback is that the place was a little low on essentials. When we arrived there wasn’t any coffee for the coffee machine and there were no other supplies for cooking other than olive oil. However the kitchen is very sweet and easy to use for home cooked meals. We also weren’t informed beforehand that the washer and dryer machine didn’t work and didn’t find this out till arriving, I thought this would have been great to be told earlier in order to organise our washing. Otherwise the place was the picture perfect cottage and we would definitely stay there again. I would definitely recommend a visit for anyone considering it.

    Marcella2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is gorgeous and has everything you could possibly want for a long weekend

    Jenny2019-11-11T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely stay. Unbelievably comfortable bed ! Beautiful original wood beams and stone walls, tasteful decor and a lovely place to unwind in. Came for a long weekend of total peace and quiet to relax and recharge ..... and pretty much got exactly that. Hosts left me all the details I needed and didn’t disturb me once , which I really appreciated. Thank You !

  • The Hayloft is absolutely what you see on the photos - it is spotlessly clean, modern and on trend. The amenities leave nothing to be desired, even down to the little touches like dressing gowns on the bed and fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. The ‘check in’ was very quick and easy, all that was required was a key safe code. The property itself is in a perfect location, an idyllic little village with a pub straight across the road (that does amazing food!) and not too far from Bourton-On-The-Water which is beautiful and well worth a visit. Could not fault our stay and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!

    Samantha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book The Hayloft if your travels take you to the Northern Cotswolds. Beautiful home, perfect location, serene surroundings.

    Philip2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay and perfect location for visiting the stunning Cotswolds x

    Georgia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely gorgeous. Looks exactly as it does in the pictures. We really enjoyed the extra touches like biscuits in the kitchen and lovely smelling body washes in the bathroom. The apartment was also really warm and cosy. Location is great for general cotswolds exploring and the pub opposite (The Plough) is cosy and friendly. We were enjoying our stay so much that we requested an extra day, which the owner allowed us at no extra charge! We really couldn’t have been happier with our stay. I should also add that the bed is really comfy and everything felt sparkling clean.

    Emma2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a unique and beautiful location in the Cotswolds! Much bigger than I expected and we had a lovely time. Highly recommend.

    Amy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay and is in a really great location only a few minutes away from Bourton-on-the-Water, with lots of other walking stops nearby. Amenities are brilliant and the area the cottage is in is lovely and quiet. Would stay again

    Victoria2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a wonderful place to stay in the Cotswold, as being located within 45 min to 1 hour of main places to visit. Cold Aston is very quiet town with a family Pub across the street. We were able to rest a lot. No street’s sound, just the sound of birds to wake up to... The particular care and attention with a bottle of milk in the refrigerator and of bathrobes were much appreciated. Thanks a lot.. we have not left UK yet to get back to Canada, but we are already planning coming back to The Hayloft over next few years.

  • Our stay at Percy's Gypsy Wagon was, somehow, even better than we had expected. Despite the small size of the caravan, it was extremely well stocked, with lots of kitchenware and plenty of blankets (and a wood stove!). Andy and Vicky were kind, helpful, and attentive hosts, and Percy, Max, and the chicken were all delightful! I would highly recommend a stay here.

    Abigail2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The wagon is truly fantastic! Perfect location and the hosts are great. They went the extra mile to make my stay special - nothing was too much.

    Leanne2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous cosy little spot! Exactly as described in the listing. Would recommend walking to the forest bakehouse for lunch!

    Xannie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning, peacefully, tranquil, surreal, chilled, nostalgic I mean their would be so many ways to describe this place all of them good, thank you for allowing us to stay, it was brilliant.

    Stuart2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely unique place to stay to unwind and spend some time away . Communication with the hosts was great and thanks for recommending the farmers boy for dinner! X

    Stephanie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect cosy and unusual escape from modern life!

    Sue2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I enjoyed the most splendid three nights at the wagon (we gathered form the reviews that one night only would not suffice). It was great to settle in and get comfortable in the space. We loved how it felt only a few degrees off from camping; it was rustic but cozy and we made do in the small but cleverly-set up space. The adjacent outhouse was adorable and we loved the quirky decor. Andy and Vicky were the best hosts with whom I've ever had the pleasure of staying in my years of using Airbnb; they were present and helpful, offering great tips, taking our dishes to wash, and keeping our water jugs filled. Defiantly plan to book with them again and would highly recommend to others. One thing I will say is that the wagon may be a bit tight for taller guests; the bed, which spans the width of the wagon, fit my friend and me but we're on the shorter side; not sure my husband would have been quite as comfortable, so something to consider when deciding to book.

    Heather2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely night away in Percys wagon. The wagon itself is beautifully decorated, and outside all lit up at night it looks magical! Loved the animals, my partner was very sad to have to say goodbye to Percy the donkey!

    Helen2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our weekend in Pear Tree Cottage; a delightful retreat. It was warm and very comfortable, and suited the four of us beautifully. We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen, and eating in the pretty dining room. Two miles or so from Minchinhampton with pubs (we ate a very good meal at The Crown) and shops, Cherington itself is a lovely Cotswolds village with walks from the door - the countryside around magical with hoar frosts on the 2 days we were there.

    Paul2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Pear Tree Cottage gives you everything you need for a perfect Cotswolds stay. For our winter stay it was cosy & utterly charming. A really delightful place.

    Lindsay2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic cottage in a lovely little village. We were welcomed at the cottage by Kevin who showed us around and let us know he was available should we need any help at all. There is a lovely log burning fire with enough wood supplied to use for one night, we bought more wood from a supermarket ten minutes drive away.

    Georgina2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful little cottage in the cotswolds. Perfect location for exploring the rest of the area. Lovely clean and cosy cottage with a wonderful fire for the evenings. Would highly recommend

    Emily2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic home away from home in a quiet village just outside Tetbury. Comfortable, spacious and well equipped - we couldn’t have asked for any more. We will definitely return for more cosy nights in front of the fire!

    Victoria2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent house and location. It's well equipped and comfortable, couldn't fault it. I'd be happy to go back. Definitely one of the most superior stays I've ever had with Airbnb

    Abbie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot and host! Weather was absolutely appalling (storm Ciara) but we didn’t feel it with the log burner and hot tub! Ideally situated to get to lots of places in the Cotswolds and beyond. The cabin itself is a little on the small side but as advertised. It has everything you need though and with better weather you wouldn’t notice as much. Would highly recommend overall.

    Gordon2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from the most beautiful experience at Jed’s Shed. Absolutely beautiful setting, clean and stylish accommodation and very friendly, helpful hosts! The views are AMAZING! Lovely and clean shower block with a nice warm shower! Very refreshing stepping out afterwards! The log burner keeps you nice and toasty even on the coldest of days, we even managed to make a pizza and cook it for our dinner! Very comfortable bed and lovely stylish finishes. The hot tub is an extra bonus! Absolute heaven sitting in there watching the stars in January! I didn’t want to leave!

    Grace2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • The perfect place for a romantic cosy getaway. I stayed in Jeds Shed over the weekend and would highly recommend it. Tanya was very helpful on my arrival and showed me how to used the fires/hot tub. It’s nice and private with lovely views of the country side. There are some good pubs nearby for food and drinks too, within walking distance. The accommodation was clean, stylish and had everything you need! I would definitely return here. Thank you Tanya

    Lucinda2019-11-25T00:00:00Z

  • Great cottage well located to all the other towns nearby!

    New2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the character cottage. The cottage had a really interesting design and the two rooms are quite far apart which was nice to have some extra privacy! The fireplace is absolutely beautiful and so is the location. There's lots of beautiful cottages on the same street with a beautiful church across the road. Only tip I would have is make sure you bring a blanket and some thick socks since it can get a little cold in the winter even with the fireplace. We would definitely stay again!

    Elizabeth2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous cottage! Truly delightful place with traditional charm, but all the modern comforts.

    Stephanie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute cottage! We had a wonderful time. A few things to note (per my husband), the doorways on the first floor are quite low - he's 5'11" and hit his head numerous times, and the access to the bathroom on the top floor is awkward - at 5'6" I had to bend in half to get up the stairs. The stone walls hindered our baby monitor from reaching the whole house, but we expected that. It was lovely to get away from real life, and in such a cozy little cottage! Don't go expecting consistent wifi, but who needs it! Would definitely come back (if I could convince my husband's poor head!).

    Leigh2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was terrific. Check was a breeze, everything was ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is very close to neighboring villages for shopping and many fine restaurants.

    Bruce2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was a nice place that comfortably housed four adults and a baby.

    Harriet2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is very special! We have stayed at multiple places and this one is definitely at the top as one of our favorites! Every room has such charm - the stone walls, the black beams, the lamps with dimming switches, the artwork... everything! Our daughters loved their room with the vaulted ceiling and my husband and I enjoyed the master suite. We loved our dinners in the dining area and our breakfasts in the private garden! The location is so wonderful for a visit to the Cotswold. We had no idea how much we'd enjoy this area and how close we would be to so many of the towns! And then to return to the very quiet and quaint village of Wyck Rissington, away from all tourists, and go for evening walks was so peaceful. We hope to return to this wonderful place!

  • This was the perfect location for our Cotswolds holiday. The house was perfect and the back garden is lovely to sit and relax. I would come here again.

Little Culver is a stunning and unique Cotswold stone property, built in 1821. The cottage forms the right hand half of a beautiful castellated Grade II listed building, Culver Cottage. Originally an almshouse, it was built by David Ricardo of Gatcombe Park, and its distinctive architectural style is reflected by its reference in Pevsner's Architectural Guide for the Cotswolds. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Little Culver is located in the heart of the village of Minchinhampton. An ornate arched doorway on the street opens into a lobby, which is shared with the neighbouring property. Little Culver’s front door opens from the lobby into the living room. The following rooms are on the ground floor: Living room: A beautiful, spacious room, adorned with antique maps and artwork, which has a stunning Gothic window with a window seat, and a Cotswold stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. There are two leather sofas, plus a bench seat, and a SMART TV with a freesat box and a DVD player; Kitchen/dining room: A stylish, contemporary room that overlooks the back garden. The well presented kitchen has a range cooker with a five ring gas hob and two electric ovens, two under counter fridges (one with a freezer compartment), a dishwasher, toaster, kettle and cafetiere. The large dining table has seating for six, and there is also a pew bench underneath a lovely Gothic window. Floor-to-ceiling cupboards provide larder space, as well as storage for coats and shoes; Utility room: Accessed from the garden, this useful space contains a washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave, as well as a toilet and wash basin. Stairs lead up from the ground floor to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: A characterful room, with a wooden floor and a Gothic window overlooking the garden, which contains a double bed, chest of drawers and a freestanding wardrobe; Bedroom 2: Another lovely room, again with a wooden floor and a Gothic window, as well as a decorative exposed stone alcove.

    Minchinhampton is a very attractive, thriving hilltop town, situated on a tongue of high land between the Golden Valley and the Nailsworth Valley, 1.5 miles north east of Nailsworth. The town also sits on the eastern fringes of Minchinhampton Common, high above the valleys that were once prosperous with the production of cloth. The centre of Minchinhampton is a picture-postcard image of what people expect of a small Cotswold town, with a selection of nice shops and places to eat. The town is centred on its High Street and old Market Square, the main feature of which is the late 17th century Market House, supported on stone columns. The interesting Holy Trinity Church dates from the 12th century and has a truncated spire looking over the Market Square. The church was given to Caen's Abbaye aux Dames by William the Conqueror and then in 1415 passed to Syon Abbey, in whose hands it remained until the Dissolution. Minchinhampton Common is a large area of open grassland with spectacular views over the Stroud and Nailsworth valleys. The area is owned by National Trust and is an important archaeological landscape, with prehistoric field systems, burial mounds and the remains of a defensive earthwork, known as The Bulwarks. In the summer the Commons are grazed by local commoners' cattle. The area covers 635 acres and is renowned for its colourful array of wild flowers and butterflies. Food & Drink For a small market town, Minchinhampton is fortunate to be blessed with a number of good places to eat and drink: The Crown Inn (https://www.thecrown-minchinhampton.com/): Roaring fires, a restaurant serving up locally inspired flavours, and a cellar stocked full of craft ales, fine wines, and fizz - when it comes to Cotswold country pubs, The Crown Inn is the perfect place to meet, eat, and make great memories. The Ragged Cot (www.theraggedcot.co.uk): Perched high on the Cotswolds outside the ancient market town of Minchinhampton sits the Ragged Cot, a country inn getaway created for serious pleasure seekers. Born of a 17th century coaching house inn set beside six hundred acres of National Trust common land the Ragged Cot is a pretty special place with an intriguing history of highwaymen and pilferage. The proprietors of the Ragged Cot take pride in their professional approach to food and service, with the seasonal menu offering great British food sourced from local farmers and even their own vegetable garden. With dishes such as seared ox tongue with pickled red cabbage, pheasant with braised leeks and artichoke puree or just simply ham, eggs with triple cooked chips you will always find a dish to fit; The Kitchen (www.thekitchenminchinhampton.co.uk): Choose a seat by the beautiful bay window and watch for riders trotting by on horseback or perhaps the occasional herd of cows strolling down from the Common. Serving delicious breakfasts, morning and afternoon teas, and lunches, all the locally sourced food is prepared fresh daily; The Old Lodge, Minchinhampton Common (www.food-club.com/old-lodge.htm): The Old Lodge is beautifully located in the centre of Minchinhampton Common. With unrivalled views of the Cotswolds, this 400 year old hunting lodge is the perfect place to escape the rush. Enjoy quality, locally sourced food served in the restaurant, the bar area, one of the smaller dining rooms or al fresco in the spacious garden. The stunning restaurant accommodates parties of up to 85 people seated and has floor to ceiling windows that look directly onto Minchinhampton Common. Minchinhampton also has an excellent butcher's shop and an organic cheese shop: L Taylor & Sons (www.taylorsminchinhampton.com): For nearly a century L Taylor and Sons has been supplying the highest quality meat to discerning customers. The quality of the shop has been recognised with a Cotswold Life Butcher of the year award; Woefuldane Organic Dairy (www.woefuldanedairy.co.uk): All the products are made by hand in the farm dairy in time honoured ways. The unpasteurised cheeses change throughout the seasons as the milk varies depending on what the cows are eating.
  • Great period property in a superb location. Well equipped and attractively decorated. Parking easy and close by.

    Ben2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, right in the centre of the village. Had a great stay and would love to go back one day. Sad to have to leave at the end of the holiday.

    Colin2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay in Little Culver. All was as advertised - plenty of space for 5 people, very comfortable and stylish. Loved the original features of the house. Thoughtful touches like chocolates and biscuits on arrival were appreciated and the key safe made our arrival stress-free as travelling from London. Would definitely stay again if travelling to the Cotswolds.

    Emma2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely property, cute area and thoughtful touches. A great break from the city with family!

    Skye2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous cottage! Lovely combination of classic country style and modern decor. Perfect amount of space for 5 adults and the surrounding villages are delightful. Would definitely return. Thanks!

    Sarah2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place in the Cotswolds. Very charming, and spacious enough for our family of 5. We would definitely go back.

    Jim2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect pad to explore the Cotswolds, set in a cute little village. Loved the treats and the garden was so beautiful to sit in and enjoy the rest of the British summer.

    Leo2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house In the quiet quintessential English village of Minchinhampton. We rocked up with 5 people and found there to be plenty of room for everyone. The Garden was well kept and a really chilled out place to hangout in the sunshine. No negative comments here! The one thing I would say is to bring cash with you because many of the local establishments don’t take cards.

    A stylish open plan barn conversion, with gorgeous uninterrupted Cotswold countryside views. It's in a private setting, perfect for couples or solo visitors. Situated on the edge of a beautiful village, it's an ideal base for enjoying all the Cotswolds has to offer, including great walking and cycling, lovely country pubs and famous cultural/sporting events in nearby Cheltenham (@10 miles). Alternatively you can just relax, enjoy the scenery and do nothing at all.
    We are perched on top of a hill on the edge of a beautiful and typical Cotswold village in an area of outstanding natural beauty. At the top of our driveway, tucked away from the main house, is our barn. If you are looking for something a little bit different but with a modern feel, gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and privacy, then this will be for you. Our pool house was converted from a small stone barn and, as the name suggests, there is an outdoor pool and one side of the building looks out on to this (though it's only open June-August). The other side looks out on to uninterrupted views of magnificent rolling hills, complete with sheep, pheasants and birds of prey. Outdoor furniture is available. Inside it's a little non-conventional, and is open plan, with a mezzanine bedroom area that has a huge gable-end window and an 11-rung wall-fixed ladder to get you up to it. Up there is a low-level double bed and a cargo net that pulls across the mezzanine opening for extra safety, if needed. NB We are very sorry but this won't be suitable for anyone who cannot ably and confidently use a ladder to go both up and down. There is a separate toilet with a small hand basin and a walk-in overhead shower (please note no bath) with a connecting changing area where you can also store/hang things out of the way. The main room is open plan and has a kitchen area with an island and seating for 6. It's well equipped and includes gas hob, electric oven, fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle (no washing machine/dryer). There is a huge, very comfy corner sofa for relaxing and there's a TV with an Amazon Firestick with a small selection of channel apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime. It has under floor heating throughout. Please note we do not have curtains on the massive sliding doors on each side, however it is private where the barn is situated with no buildings overlooking it. There are removable blackouts that can be used on the gable-end window on the mezzanine/bedroom level, for those who prefer less light when sleeping. Outside there's a lovely deck and beyond the pool is a private garden area leading on to a paddock. Wifi works very well, mobile not very well at all, though you can hook-up to the wifi and use wifi calling, if you have it and that works perfectly.
    Our area is very beautiful, very green, very quiet and very rural. This makes for a relaxing and peaceful stay. It's also super-dark at night as we have no street lights. If you are looking for night-life you'd have to go to Cheltenham (15 mins drive, cab possible with a bit of pre-planning). Please note you will have to drive to get to a pub or shop.
  • Our stay was perfect! The converted barn was just what we needed and had everything for a lovely weekend. Views were amazing and the host left us to it but was only a message away. Highly recommend this place.

    Jordan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great views and well insulated in winter.

    Christina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Rhys2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and accommodation and a very helpful host. We had everything we needed for a lovely stay. We hope to be back some time.

    Dan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a very private, enjoyable stay in your pool house. The decor is modern and minimal as shown in the pictures- the bathroom and shower were functional and spacious. Even during stormy weather the views are beautiful and it’s very peaceful. We went to Cheltenham which is only a 15 minute drive. We didn’t go walking because of the weather but the pack in the barn is full of ideas. A pint of milk in the fridge would be my only suggestion. Otherwise everything was perfect.

    Alex2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, lovely veiws and good walks. Looking forward to staying again!

    Alexander2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend anyone to stay here if they are looking to come to the cotswolds! The most amazing place to stay, with lovely and peaceful views! Tina is a wonderful host, always waving us hello and goodbye when she saw us, and offering great tips and hints for our stay! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's made up of pretty stone cottages, many dating back to the 17th century and medieval wool trade. There is a weekly country market and a good choice of cafes. Minchinhampton was chosen as a scenic location for the recent BBC TV adaptation of J K Rowling’s Casual Vacancy. There are breathtaking panoramic views of the Stroud Valleys from Minchinhampton Common, which sits on the Cotswold escarpment. It is an important archaeological landscape and managed by the National Trust. Rare orchids and butterflies can be spotted along with freely roaming horses and cattle.

Arlington Row, owned by the National Trust, is one of England’s most iconic and photographed sites – it even appears on the inside cover of UK passports! Originally built in the 14th century as a monastic wool store, it was converted in the 17th century into a row of weavers’ cottages. The cottages are now lived in by National Trust tenants, with no public access to the cottages or gardens, although one of them can be rented out as a holiday cottage. The River Coln flows through Bibury sandwiched between the main village street and an expanse of boggy water meadow known as Rack Isle, so called because wool was once hung out to dry there on racks after it had been washed in Arlington Row. With Arlington Row as a backdrop, it makes one of the most picturesque scenes you will find in the Cotswolds. 30 min drive:CHELTENHAM SPA 45 min drive: BATH SPA
  • Victoria and her place are so great. She went above and beyond to accommodate me and ensure I got the most out of my stay. The nearby nature reserve was so tranquil and alive. Truly a beautiful place!

  • Lovely little apartment done up to a very good standard. Very homely and cosy. Fully equipped kitchen which was great as we didn't want to head out for dinner. Was in a good location to a few shops and pubs. Bit of miscommunication with check in, however was sorted quite easily.

    Gemma2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • My husband and I were looking for a quiet night away. We came across this place and thought it looked interesting. We were blown by the beautiful location. We also booked a couple's yoga session which was incredible. It gave us 1.5 hours to really connect with each other. Victoria & Dave were amazing hosts. We will be back again without a doubt.

    Lucy2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem of an apartment. We also had a few of the amazing ‘treatments/sessions’ on offer by Victoria which we found great. Her hospitality adds to the totally relaxing atmosphere. Lots of walks straight from the apartment. Shops, restaurants and bars a few miles away and yet you feel in the middle of nowhere.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

    sarah2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property in an excellent location. The Chapel was easy to find thanks to clear instructions sent before our stay, and it was very clean and cosy, with plenty of space for eight people. The only slightly annoying thing was the shower in the annexe, which was breaking, but it was still useable so not too bad. Check in was very simple - we were even left a cake as a welcome gift. There are plenty of lovely walks nearby plus an amazing pub. We had a really wonderful weekend here. Thank you!

  • Beautiful cottage, perfect for any time of year. Great stay!

  • Nice spacious house, perfect for a family get together. Well equipped. It's warm and quiet.

    Lindsey And Tim2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space. We were a group of eight so the size was perfect. The main bedroom and annexe are great sizes both with en suites and the other two bathrooms are still a comfortable size with a good sized family bathroom. Garden is gorgeous and would be perfect for summer, sadly the weather didn’t allow us to enjoy it. Kitchen is a great size and very practical. Local pub the Falcon is very welcoming and great food- highly recommend. Overall a fab stay.

  • We had a great stay at The Chapel, the property is stunning and the process from booking through to arriving was very easy. The space works really well for a group of 8, with both the kitchen/diner and lounge being good communal spaces. The enclosed garden was also great, especially for the dog.

The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Really great, clean and homely cottage with very friendly hosts. So much information was provided about local things to do and see. On arrival there was bread, wine, tea and coffee all stocked up, with information about local shops etc. Stunning location to add to it all.

    Bethany2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful stay at Bramley Cottage. Pete and Liz and so friendly and welcoming. The house is warm, spotless and wonderfully comfortable. The thoughtful touches, flowers, fruit, milk and bread were so kind. Pete and Liz even got a bag of animals ready for our toddler-she had a fantastic time playing with them. Liz very kindly came out to feed Lucy the sheep so our daughter could see her. We highly recommend staying at Bramley cottage. We intend to visit again!

    Welcome to Brook Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Brook Cottage is one of the most idyllically situated properties in the Cotswolds, sitting on a quiet lane overlooking fields, with only the soothing sound of the babbling brook outside to break the silence. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is in the historic heart of Blockley, which is a peaceful, yet thriving village, with two pubs, a community owned village shop & café, a historic Norman church and a childrens' playground. Blockley has numerous beautiful walks on its doorstep and is well located for exploring the many beautiful market towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Walking along Blockley Brook leads you to Brook Cottage’s front door, which opens into: Living room: A cosy, beautifully furnished room, with a stone mullion window with window seat, wooden beams, a large inglenook fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove and a flat-panel TV. The living room is also used for dining and it contains an extendable dining table, with seating for up to four people. The living room then leads into: Kitchen: For a small cottage, the beautifully decorated kitchen is very well equipped, including a cooker with hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer dryer. Returning to the living room, a narrow, steep staircase leads up to a small first floor hallway, off which is: Bedroom 2: A cosy bedroom, with exposed beams and brickwork, containing a double bed next to the stone mullion window, which looks out to fields and the brook below. The main bathroom is accessed via bedroom 1 and this contains a bath with handheld shower attachment, basin and toilet. The staircase continues up into the gable of the house, opening out to: Master bedroom: Another cosy double bedroom, with exposed beams and a stone mullion window, bedroom 2 also has an en-suite toilet and basin.

    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling.

There are also beautiful walks through the countryside on your doorstep and the town has a wonderful small community feel. The house itself is so quaint.

    Sam2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Emma2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely cottage in beautiful Naunton is a great value and a perfect place to begin exploring the Cotswolds. This cool tiny village has broadband provided by fiber-optic cable. I live in Nashville, TN and I don't have fiber-optic. So needless to say Internet connectivity is fabulous. Loved it.

    Beth2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

    Located in the north Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the principal market towns in the region. The main feature of the town is the historic market square which used to play host to the annual sheep fairs where, at the height of the Cotswold wool industry, up to 20,000 sheep were sold at one time. The market square is steeped in history and has two features which date back to the medieval period. At one end of the square there is the medieval cross which was erected to urge traders to carry out fair business under the eyes of God, and at the far end stand the town stocks which are found in the shadows of the old elm tree. Originally known as Edwardstow or Stow St Edward after the town's patron saint Edward, the town's church is also named after him. The church is just 100 yards from the town square and is a lovely place for locals and tourists alike to get some peace from the bustling market square. The north door is guarded by two yew trees and is a focal point of the town. Stow has traditional narrow alleyways, or "tures" as they were once known, which wind their way through the centre of the town. It is these same alleyways that were once used to channel the sheep to the fair. Another point of interest in the town is the well in Well Lane which is now a Grade II Listed Building. As a result of the rather unique geology of the area, water held in the higher layers of the limestone bursts out of various fissures on the slopes and two do still work as wells now. Food & Drink Stow has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Queens Head Inn (www.donnington-brewery.com/the_queens_head_stow_on_the_wold): The Queens Head is a traditional town pub, owned by the local Donnington brewery. Here locals mix with tourists who are unsurprisingly attracted into this lovely old pub. Good traditional pub food and ale, in a great atmosphere; The Sheep (www.thesheepstow.co.uk): A seasonal menu with pizzas being a major focus. There is a wood-fired oven in the restaurant, where you can watch your freshly made pizza cook; The Talbot: Laid back drinking, eating and coffees in a traditional meeting place for the town slap bang in the Square. Sofas, original paintings, rickety old tables and chairs, with staff who are under the threat of death if they are not friendly! White Hart (www.thewhitehartstow.com): A 'boutique' style Inn, which has recently been beautifully refurbished throughout. The Inn boasts two cosy bars, lots of open fires and an atmospheric dining room. Hearty food is served during the day, with finer dining in the evening. All food is sourced locally and prepared on the premises; The Bell (www.thebellatstow.com): The Bell at Stow is the perfect country pub. Behind the ivy-clad façade lies a charming, stylish interior with the warmest of welcomes. A favourite with the locals, The Bell is open all day every day offering everything from a pint of well-kept cask ale through to a delicious three-course supper. Friday evenings are legendary for the Champagne Happy Hour at 5pm - grab a seat if you can as the weekend gets off to the perfect start! Stow has a Tesco and a Co-op for regular food purchases and, for special treats, there is a traditional butcher's shop and a number of delicatessens specialising in local produce, including: Lambournes Butchers (www.lambournesbutchers.co.uk): A family owned, multi-award winning traditional butchers, renowned for locally-produced meat, poultry and game, sourced from hand-picked suppliers. Referring to the owner, the BBC's Adam Henson has observed that "what Bob doesn't know about sausages isn't worth knowing"; Cotswold Food Store and Café (www.cotswoldfoodstore.co.uk): The Cotswold Food Store and Café offers a huge variety of delicious local foods, ranging from locally sourced vegetables, meat, eggs and bread to charcuterie, hams and pates in its deli counter. The adjoining café offers freshly prepared meals by resident chef Sonya Kidney, along with home-made cakes, biscuits and light bites; Hamptons Fine Foods (www.hamptons-hampers.co.uk): Hamptons offer a wide range of quality foods to discerning customers. The shelves are packed with exclusive and delicious fine foods that one would not normally find in the mass outlets. A veritable Aladdin's cave. Hamptons specialise in gourmet hampers which can be collected from their shop or delivered direct.

    Leo2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • The property we stayed in was a delightful Cotswold cottage in a great location within easy walking distance to the town.

    Elaine2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect character cottage to enjoy a break with the family in the Cotwolds. Very spacious for 5 people, log fire was great, character features are really pretty and add to the place. Well stocked kitchen. Very good sized bathroom. Characterful bedrooms. Perfectly located for walks and for the town of Stow. Good parking, near to all local pubs. Nearby main road is not really audible and very handy to have BP MandS and Majestic Wine opposite. Good communication with hosts. Would recommend highly.

    Welcome to Old Manor Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Old Manor Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed cottage that dates all the way back to the 17th century and sits peacefully in the large grounds of the owner's manor house, which is also run as a small B&B facility. The cottage is located on a quiet lane in the small village of Halford, on the north-eastern edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by stunning countryside. There is a shop and a pub in the village, and the famous Cotswold market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh are both within 10 miles, with their wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants. William Shakespeare’s birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon is also less than 10 miles away, and many other attractions are within easy reach, including Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace and Oxford, as well as the many stately homes and gardens located in the north Cotswolds. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Old Manor Cottage is a beautiful thatched property that sits in the grounds of the owner’s manor house. The front door opens into the hallway, with the following rooms on the ground floor: Living room: This lovely room has exposed beams, an oak door and a roaring open fire. There is a two seater sofa, two comfy arm chairs, and a Freeview TV with integrated DVD player, plus an iPod dock with radio and CD player; Kitchen/dining room: A well equipped kitchen, which includes an electric cooker with four ring electric hob, fridge, freezer, slimline dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and a combined washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a glass dining table, which comfortably seats three; Cloakroom: Contains a toilet. Stairs lead up from the hallway to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 1: This room contains a single bed. Bedroom 2 is accessed via this room, making bedroom 1 better suited for a child; Bedroom 2: Accessed via bedroom 1, this is a lovely dual aspect room, which has beautiful views across the gardens and contains a king size bed; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with an overhead shower attachment, heated towel rail, toilet and wash basin. The cottage sits in three acres of beautiful grounds, and guests have their own private lawned area within the grounds, including a summer house and a table with four chairs and two sun loungers. There is a well maintained tennis court in the grounds, which guests can use by prior arrangement with the owner, and the grounds run down to the River Stour, where fishing is available. Off street parking is available outside the cottage for two cars.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • My wife, our 8 month old and I really enjoyed our few days at this cottage nestled in the cotswold countryside. The value for money is exceptional! The kitchen and bathroom have underfloor heating which is so nice when making the first cup of tea of the day; and the log burner in the lounge really adds to the cosy atmosphere. Yes, the beams are low and the stairs are steep, but this just adds to the quirkiness of the cottage - plus I’m 6’ 3” and didn’t have much trouble. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer.

Bourton has a wide range of traditional pubs, shops and restaurants and is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, and the many picturesque market towns and villages of the Cotswolds are all within easy reach, as are further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!

    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene. Another family favourite is the Dragonfly Maze. This yew maze leads visitors through the labyrinth, gathering clues in order to find the pavilion in the centre which enables them to unlock the final secret! The maze was constructed by Kit Williams, author of the golden hare treasure hunt book, "Masquerade". Food & Drink Bourton has a variety of places to eat and drink, including cafes, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, with a range of prices to suit all budgets. The list below is a small sample of the options available: The Chester House Hotel and The Croft Restaurant (www.chesterhousehotel.com): Breakfast, morning coffee, lunches and evening meals in a riverside restaurant. You can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce throughout the day and night, with seasonal specials added to the menu daily. The Duke of Wellington (www.dukeofwellingtonbourton.co.uk): A local village inn aiming to provide fresh home cooked food with a friendly service. There is a light snacking menu, a full menu and a wonderful range of desserts and hot beverages. As well as daily home cooked specials, on Sundays you can enjoy a traditional carvery with all the trimmings from 12-6pm. The Mousetrap Inn (www.mousetrap-inn.com): A traditionally run Cotswold stone Inn, with a history dating back to the building of the railways in the 18th Century. Serving home-made food, along with fantastic, locally brewed real ales. The Village Restaurant & Tearooms (www.thevillagerestaurant.co.uk): Traditional, home cooked food in a friendly atmosphere, overlooking the river Windrush, in the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water.

In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • This place is everything you need and more. The pods are adorable and have a lot more room inside than you would think. We stayed for one night but wish we had stayed longer. Definitely order the fire pack if you can, it was pretty windy but we still managed to get the fire pit going and it was such a lovely way to end the evening. We met the owners when having brunch at the onsite café called the Nuttery. The food hit the spot and the staff and the owners were so welcoming and extremely hospitable. Definitely somewhere you will want to go back to in the future, we are already looking to book this place again! Thank you so much again! See you soon!

    Jennifer2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Pods were a really neat idea. If you like getting away from hotels and fussy check in and check outs this is a good one for you.

    Joe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy pod in the countryside. Great fire pit and fire pack provided at additional cost. Extra special in the bright fresh sunshine as well as waking up to snow in the morning!

    Welcome to Alice Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Alice Cottage is set on a hillside, with views out over the rooftops of Blockley, to the woods and fields beyond. The village is a hidden gem, being set well away from major roads and is very peaceful and picturesque, yet it is large enough to have two pubs, a restaurant and a community owned village shop and café, as well as a historic Norman church. It is also the location where the Father Brown mystery series is filmed. Blockley is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Camden and Stow-on-the-Wold, and many beautiful countryside walks are right on the doorstep. It is also well located for further afield destinations, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford or Blenheim Palace. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Alice Cottage is one of a handful of cottages set on a small quiet lane, yet only moments from Blockley's historic high street. There is one shared parking space in front of the cottage and additional, free street parking is readily available. A path through the garden leads to the front door, which opens into the sunroom and the rest of the ground floor: Sunroom: South facing and looking out to the garden, with exposed stone walls and a clear roof, this is a lovely room to relax in, whatever the season. Contains a wooden table and two chairs; Living room/dining room/kitchen: The heart of this cosy cottage, the living room area contains comfy seating for three people, a wood burning stove and an LED HD Freesat TV, with DVD player. There is a fold away table, for formal dining. The kitchen area is very efficiently and practically arranged, and includes a 2-ring electric hob, electric oven, Smeg fridge/freezer, microwave, Miele washing machine/tumble dryer, toaster and kettle. There is also a radio with an iPod dock. Stairs lead up from the kitchen area to a small first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: Contains a double bed and plenty of storage space. There is also a radio with an iPod dock; Bedroom 2: A small room, which contains a 75cm wide single bed and a bedside cabinet with drawers; Shower room: Although small, the bathroom has been well designed, to include a shower, small basin and toilet. Alice Cottage's small, enclosed garden is well proportioned with a raised terrace to take advantage of the lovely far reaching rural views and to provide a beautiful south facing outdoor seating area, with a table, wooden bench, two chairs and a charcoal BBQ.
    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea.
  • This. Cottage. Is. So. Cozy. I had the best time, and found it perfectly suited for for resting, reading, and re-charging. The fireplace is a nice added touch, as was the lemon cake waiting for me with my tea. I would 100% go back. I miss it already.

    Amanda2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We found this place to be what it says on the tin. Not too overdone and quaint and cosy. Great to relax and let yourself away. Sitting by the fire crackling away as rain pattered on the porch roof with a glass of wine in hand and great friends in toe was a wonderful experience. The local area is good for a few days explore with Bourton Wood as a particularly beautiful highlight. The space is a little small so I’d keep it to three people max but it worked well for 2-3 nights. The parking space was also tight but was fine in the end. The shower was also great - an important part of a winter stay in the Cotswolds!

    David2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Super cosy cottage with a great fireplace making it ideal for a winter break.

    Dan2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time. The cottage was small but very clean and cosy. It’s well equipped and brilliantly located for exploring the Cotswolds

    Sally2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage - perfect for our family of 3!!

    John2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really sweet, cosy cottage. It is small but this is accurately represented in the description. It is ideal for a couple with a young child. We had a third adult occupying the small single room which was fine for the couple of nights we were there. I did think that at over £400 for a couple of nights was expensive and if I was to stay there again would probably go direct to Character Cottages rather than through AirBnB. However it is very conveniently situated for this lovely village of Brockley and the parking wasn’t as complicated as it first sounded it might be. We did a lovely walk over to Batsford Arboretum and also managed to be in Brockley for film night which was an additional unexpected treat.

    Ann2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Alice Cottage is really very nice, tastefully decorated and clean. Comfortable veranda at the entrance, ideal for taking off wet jackets and shoes before entering the house. Large and well equipped kitchen. The only thing missing is the dishwasher, for the rest there's really everything, even a very useful washer / dryer. The bathroom, located on the upper floor, is small but functional. The large and tastefully furnished double bedroom. That single little one but pretty. The strength of the cottage is undoubtedly the small living room with fireplace. Especially when it is raining and cold outside, being able to relax in front of the fireplace, is really a unique and priceless experience (wood is necessary to light the fire provided by the property). Convenient private parking in front of the entrance. Excellent location. The picturesque village of Blockley is the ideal starting point to visit the Cotswolds. Simply perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday in the heart of the English countryside. Finally I point out the seriousness of the agency that manages the property. Really very kind and helpful. If we were to return to the Cotswolds in the future, we would have no doubts, we would certainly return to the Alice Cottage. Highly recommended!

    Monica2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

The market square is steeped in history and has two features which date back to the medieval period. At one end of the square there is the medieval cross which was erected to urge traders to carry out fair business under the eyes of God, and at the far end stand the town stocks which are found in the shadows of the old elm tree. Originally known as Edwardstow or Stow St Edward after the town's patron saint Edward, the town's church is also named after him. The church is just 100 yards from the town square and is a lovely place for locals and tourists alike to get some peace from the bustling market square. The north door is guarded by two yew trees and is a focal point of the town. Stow has traditional narrow alleyways, or "tures" as they were once known, which wind their way through the centre of the town. It is these same alleyways that were once used to channel the sheep to the fair. Another point of interest in the town is the well in Well Lane which is now a Grade II Listed Building. As a result of the rather unique geology of the area, water held in the higher layers of the limestone bursts out of various fissures on the slopes and two do still work as wells now. Food & Drink Stow has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Queens Head Inn (www.donnington-brewery.com/the_queens_head_stow_on_the_wold): The Queens Head is a traditional town pub, owned by the local Donnington brewery. Here locals mix with tourists who are unsurprisingly attracted into this lovely old pub. Good traditional pub food and ale, in a great atmosphere; The Sheep (www.thesheepstow.co.uk): A seasonal menu with pizzas being a major focus. There is a wood-fired oven in the restaurant, where you can watch your freshly made pizza cook; The Talbot: Laid back drinking, eating and coffees in a traditional meeting place for the town slap bang in the Square. Sofas, original paintings, rickety old tables and chairs, with staff who are under the threat of death if they are not friendly! White Hart (www.thewhitehartstow.com): A 'boutique' style Inn, which has recently been beautifully refurbished throughout. The Inn boasts two cosy bars, lots of open fires and an atmospheric dining room. Hearty food is served during the day, with finer dining in the evening. All food is sourced locally and prepared on the premises; The Bell (www.thebellatstow.com): The Bell at Stow is the perfect country pub. Behind the ivy-clad façade lies a charming, stylish interior with the warmest of welcomes. A favourite with the locals, The Bell is open all day every day offering everything from a pint of well-kept cask ale through to a delicious three-course supper. Stow has a Tesco and a Co-op for regular food purchases and, for special treats, there is a traditional butcher's shop and a number of delicatessens specialising in local produce, including: Lambournes Butchers (www.lambournesbutchers.co.uk): A family owned, multi-award winning traditional butchers, renowned for locally-produced meat, poultry and game, sourced from hand-picked suppliers. Referring to the owner, the BBC's Adam Henson has observed that "what Bob doesn't know about sausages isn't worth knowing"; Cotswold Food Store and Café (www.cotswoldfoodstore.co.uk): The Cotswold Food Store and Café offers a huge variety of delicious local foods, ranging from locally sourced vegetables, meat, eggs and bread to charcuterie, hams and pates in its deli counter. The adjoining café offers freshly prepared meals by resident chef Sonya Kidney, along with home-made cakes, biscuits and light bites; Hamptons Fine Foods (www.hamptons-hampers.co.uk): Hamptons offer a wide range of quality foods to discerning customers. The shelves are packed with exclusive and delicious fine foods that one would not normally find in the mass outlets. A veritable Aladdin's cave. Hamptons specialise in gourmet hampers which can be collected from their shop or delivered direct.
  • Beautifully decorated open plan apartment in the very centre of Stow. Can’t find a fault. We had a fantastic weekend break pottering around Stow and the nearby villages too. Recommend the Hive coffee shop just opposite.

  • The Sanctuary is a superb place to stay. It is furnished to an exceptionally high standard. Located right in the heart of Stow-on-the-Wold with great cafes and pubs all within a 5 minute walk. Plenty of beautiful country walks that start virtually from your front door!! Communication and check in were smooth and easy. We’ll definitely visit again. Thank you.

    Sue2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful apartment in a great location. It was sparkling clean with some really thoughtful touches left for our stay. Would absolutely recommend!

    Eleanor2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning beautifully kept property with quirky features that we absolutely loved. The property is spotlessly clean and well presented. The location is perfect for exploring and there are lots of lovely places to eat nearby. Questions were responded to quickly and the welcome gift upon arrival was a kind and thoughtful touch.

    Anna2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place in a perfect place I don't want to say to many good things about this place as we might find there aren't any vacancies in the future! (-;

    Alan2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment in an old church. Stylishly decorated and in a great location in Stow.

    Tanya2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Character Cottage’s cottage is beautiful and very well appointed with everything you’d need for a great stay. The location is ideal for exploring all the different lovely villages in the Cotswolds, but we especially liked coming back to the amazing Church Windows upstairs. Character Cottages go above and beyond with recommendations for getting the most out of the area. Would highly recommend!

    Ashley2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at The Sanctuary, it was stylish and we immediately felt at home. Stow on the Wold was a perfect location too. Will definitely recommend and hope to go back.

    Welcome to Bracken Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Bracken Cottage is a traditional Cotswold stone cottage built to house the weavers who worked in the many silk mills of the beautiful village of Blockley. The cottage is one of a row on a quiet road and the rooms at the back benefit from fabulous views of the surrounding Blockley Valley. The historic village is very peaceful and picturesque yet benefits from having two pubs and a community owned village shop & café, as well as a historic Norman church in the centre of the village. Numerous scenic country walks are accessible directly from the cottage and Blockley is well located for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Bracken Cottage is one of a row of former silk weaver’s cottages set on a quiet road in the village of Blockley. The front door opens directly into the ground floor living area: Living room/dining room/kitchen: This homely open plan living space has a cosy wood burning stove, wooden beams and a stable door with views across to the fields beyond. This room contains a sofa, a window seat, a Smart TV, a fold away dining table with seating for two, an electric oven, four-ring gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, cafetière, kettle and toaster. Steep stairs lead up from the living area to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 2: A smart room with exposed painted beams, a king size bed, bedside tables, full length mirror and chest of drawers (please note the chest of drawers is not for guest use); Family bathroom: Decorated in a contemporary style, this spacious bathroom has a bath with handheld shower attachment, toilet, wash basin and a cupboard containing a washing machine. Further steep stairs lead directly into the master bedroom: Master bedroom: A characterful and cosy room in the eaves which contains a king size bed, Smart TV, chest of drawers and vanity mirror. The bedroom leads into the ensuite bathroom which contains a walk-in rain shower with handheld shower attachment, toilet and wash basin. The stable door leads from the kitchen into a wonderful landscaped garden with uninterrupted views of the countryside. The patio area directly outside the kitchen has a garden table with two benches, two chairs, a charcoal barbecue and a parasol. Three steps lead down from the patio to the lawn, bordered with timber beds along one side, and there is a further sunny patio and herb garden beyond. Free parking is available in the village car park opposite the cottage.
    Blockley is a popular village in the Cotswolds which is found within a triangle formed by three renowned market towns: Chipping Campden to the North, Moreton-in-Marsh to the South East and Stow-on-the-Wold to the South. Being close to these three towns has led to increased footfall in the village, bringing with it good quality pubs and a lovely village shop/café. As the village is away from main roads, it avoids the heavy tourist traffic and so visitors can get a real sense of rural life, enjoying the rolling countryside which falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The peaceful Blockley Brook attracts tourists and locals as a quiet place to relax in the warmer months. This brook, together with the other brook in the village, played a part in Blockley's history as there were once 12 water mills which provided work in various industries over the centuries, including silk production and flour milling. Architecturally the village has quite a different character in comparison to the rest of the North Cotswolds as it has a more similar style to that of the villages in the Stroud valley, but here they have used a more golden stone. This design is reminiscent of wealthier times as the majority of the cottages were built during the 17th and 18th century, at the height of the industrial era. A popular attraction in Blockley is Mill Dene Garden which is a partner garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. With a misty grotto, stream and seats around the mill pond, this is a lovely place to while away the time looking out for the kingfishers whilst enjoying a cream tea. Food & Drink For a relatively small village, Blockley is blessed with a number of places to eat and drink, all just a short walk from anywhere in the village. The Crown Inn (www.crownhotelblockley.co.uk): This 16th century country inn is situated in the heart of Blockley and features a restaurant serving dishes prepared with local produce, along with a bar with an open fire and a wide selection of real ales. This honey coloured historic inn is covered in Virginia creeper which turns a stunning red in Autumn. Walk inside to the scents of wood smoke from the open log fires and snuggle into a comfy chair by the fire, to view the daily papers with a coffee or something stronger. Dinner is served in the warm and friendly restaurant with lighter meals and snacks available in the bar. The Great Western Arms (https://www.hooky.co.uk/content/our-pubs/great-western-arms-blockley.ashx): The award winning Great Western Arms is the “Local” of Blockley. The “Western” as it is locally known, is a Hook Norton Brewery pub and is tenanted to Sharon Brace. It is right at the heart of the village both geographically and socially, and is where Sharon and her team serve up some of the finest food, drink and entertainment available. The pub has two rooms: one is used as the restaurant and the other houses a pool table, juke box and darts board (dogs are welcome in the pool room). The Pub has recently been extensively refurbished and now boasts 1st class facilities and comforts. The spacious lounge bar/restaurant retains its period "feel" but has been re-furnished and decorated with great taste and care. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly. Blockley Village Shop & Café (blockleyshop.com): The community owned shop and café is the hub of the village. The shop offers a wide range of basic groceries and necessities, and a tempting array of local products, including farm meat and free-range eggs, daily deliveries of local fruit and veg, freshly baked bread and locally made ready meals. Logs are generally stocked in winter. The licensed café is open all day, serving breakfasts, lunches, coffees and teas, and home-baked cakes. Take-away hot and cold food, including croissants, pastries and baguettes, is also very popular. The café, where free broadband is available, is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors of all ages.
  • A lovely character cottage, in a beautiful unspoilt village, perfectly situated for exploring The Cotswolds. Local pub and wonderful village shop and cafe were definitely a bonus.

    Keith2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Bracken Cottage for a weekend away and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Beautiful house, lovely village with a great cafe. Good location to nearby villages to explore. Would absolutely return to Bracken Cottage another time.

    Katie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was beautiful, would highly recommend to those wanting to Visit the Cotswolds. Very close to many of the towns, but also located in a nice quiet area. We went to the local pub and cafe for meals, they were absolutely delicious. The cottage itself was very well decorated with lots of amenities. It was so lovely to snuggle up with the fire in the middle of winter. We would really recommend this home to others.

    Gaetano2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and clean would definitely go back if I was in the area

    Stephen2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely relaxing stay at Bracken cottage with our 3 month old baby. The amenities were excellent and there were plenty of good options for food and excursions close by.

    Ursula2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • My hubby and I had a lovely short break here. Great little cottage with all you need in a nice village that’s not really touristy yet really close to many of the Cotswolds attractions. If you don’t fancy cooking there’s a super village cafe within walking distance for coffee & cake or breakfast or lunch and also a nice village pub for a pint or evening meal.

    Sam2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Bracken Cottage. It was perfect for my wife and me and our infant son. It is charming and well-appointed with a lovely back-yard. Parking was easy across the street. It's less than a 300 meter walk downhill to the village cafe. We would stay there again without hesitation.

    Paul2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for some “R&R”, as well as exploring the delightful towns nearby. Blockley is quiet and not touristy, but full of charm, and the locals are very friendly. Also the Great Western has excellent food, as does the local cafe, and the village shop has an amazing array of stock. Bracken Cottage is so quaint, warm and sunny. It has a really comfortable bed and lovely linens.

    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877. Food & Drink Broadway has a number of places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a sample of the options available: Russell's (www.russellsofbroadway.co.uk): Head Chef, Neil Clarke, serves modern British food in the award-winning restaurant, with local Vale of Evesham and Cotswold produce featuring throughout the daily-changing menus. The modern, airy dining room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with friendly staff and laid-back service combining to create a relaxed and warm setting, day and night; The Lygon Arms (http://www.thehotelcollection.co.uk/hotels/the-lygon-arms-hotel-cotswolds/): A 17th century minstrel's gallery, a grand open fire and an imposing barrel-vaulted ceiling greet you as you enter The Great Hall, the main dining room of the famous Lygon Arms Hotel. A destination in its own right, people travel miles to enjoy the restaurant's 2 AA Rosettes for excellence sumptuous cuisine and warm friendly service of the highest quality. A few steps across the courtyard, Lukes Bistro offers a relaxing atmosphere serving traditional English cuisine with a contemporary twist, equally as imaginative and as fresh, using ingredients that are grown and reared locally, including a wide range of herbs and plums from the hotel's own orchards; The Potting Shed (www.dormyhouse.co.uk/potting-shed-restaurant): The Potting Shed is everything a Cotswold country dining pub should be. It's relaxed and inviting, with a large leather-and-oak bar and a rustic agenda. This is English pub grub as it ought to be: sticky ribs, great bangers, slow-cooked pork belly and fish that's been caught on our shores. Dress up and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, or dress down and bring the kids.

It is situated in the Evenlode valley, a short drive from the well known Cotswold market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Norton.

The font is 13th century, the Perpendicular Gothic tower 15th century, the nave roof is dated 1774 and the rest of the church was remodelled in 1851-3.

  • Very centrally located in Kingham and very charming. The house is small and the ceilings in the bedrooms are quite low, but overall it was everything we needed. Nice heated floors in the bathroom.

  • Really lovely little cottage, ideal for 2 people! the location is amazing being just a stones throw away from some great pubs, and Daylesford Farm. It was really clean with lots of amenities, and very handily for us lots of toys and games for our little one. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully be staying again soon!

    This is a beautiful space with stunning views over the fields towards stroud. It is very simply decorated inside with lovely oak beams and staircase. There is also a wood burning stove for extra warmth in the winter months. From the outside it almost looks like a swiss chalet, and upstairs on the mezzanine floor you will find traditional Japanese Tatami mats and futon beds. There are currently no kitchen facilities apart from a kettle, fridge and microwave.
    The Annexe is clad in beautiful Larch wood which gives it a lovely warm glowing look, the floor, doors and stairs are all warm wood too. The Tatami mats and Futon beds are genuine traditional Japanese pieces.
    The surrounding area is great for walking and cycling, not far from the town of stroud too which has an award winning farmers market every Saturday which has amazing local produce. Stroud is nestled in the 5 valleys in the heart of the Cotswolds with beautiful countryside all round.
  • Such a lovely space! Beautifully decorated and very cozy. If you don't like a thinner, more firm mattress you may want to steer clear; personally I liked the traditional tatami mats.

  • A beautiful, peaceful space. It was a shame to only spend one night here but we had a great time. Love the Japanese theme!

  • Great location , clean and tidy. Everything you need for a short weekend away, the local town is lovely. The bed was interesting but managed to get a good night sleep.

  • Great place to chill and enjoy a warm fire while enjoying the evening in a relaxing area.

    Located in the north Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the principal market towns in the region. The main feature of the town is the historic market square which used to play host to the annual sheep fairs where, at the height of the Cotswold wool industry, up to 20,000 sheep were sold at one time. The market square is steeped in history and has two features which date back to the medieval period. At one end of the square there is the medieval cross which was erected to urge traders to carry out fair business under the eyes of God, and at the far end stand the town stocks which are found in the shadows of the old elm tree. Originally known as Edwardstow or Stow St Edward after the town's patron saint Edward, the town's church is also named after him. The church is just 100 yards from the town square and is a lovely place for locals and tourists alike to get some peace from the bustling market square. The north door is guarded by two yew trees and is a focal point of the town. Stow has traditional narrow alleyways, or "tures" as they were once known, which wind their way through the centre of the town. It is these same alleyways that were once used to channel the sheep to the fair. Another point of interest in the town is the well in Well Lane which is now a Grade II Listed Building. As a result of the rather unique geology of the area, water held in the higher layers of the limestone bursts out of various fissures on the slopes and two do still work as wells now. Food & Drink Stow has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. The list below is a small sample of the range of options available: The Queens Head Inn (www.donnington-brewery.com/the_queens_head_stow_on_the_wold): The Queens Head is a traditional town pub, owned by the local Donnington brewery. Here locals mix with tourists who are unsurprisingly attracted into this lovely old pub. Good traditional pub food and ale, in a great atmosphere; The Sheep (www.thesheepstow.co.uk): A seasonal menu with pizzas being a major focus. There is a wood-fired oven in the restaurant, where you can watch your freshly made pizza cook; The Talbot: Laid back drinking, eating and coffees in a traditional meeting place for the town slap bang in the Square. Sofas, original paintings, rickety old tables and chairs, with staff who are under the threat of death if they are not friendly! White Hart (www.thewhitehartstow.com): A 'boutique' style Inn, which has recently been beautifully refurbished throughout. The Inn boasts two cosy bars, lots of open fires and an atmospheric dining room. Hearty food is served during the day, with finer dining in the evening. All food is sourced locally and prepared on the premises; The Bell (www.thebellatstow.com): The Bell at Stow is the perfect country pub. Behind the ivy-clad façade lies a charming, stylish interior with the warmest of welcomes. A favourite with the locals, The Bell is open all day every day offering everything from a pint of well-kept cask ale through to a delicious three-course supper. Friday evenings are legendary for the Champagne Happy Hour at 5pm - grab a seat if you can as the weekend gets off to the perfect start! Stow has a Tesco and a Co-op for regular food purchases and, for special treats, there is a traditional butcher's shop and a number of delicatessens specialising in local produce, including: Lambournes Butchers (www.lambournesbutchers.co.uk): A family owned, multi-award winning traditional butchers, renowned for locally-produced meat, poultry and game, sourced from hand-picked suppliers. Referring to the owner, the BBC's Adam Henson has observed that "what Bob doesn't know about sausages isn't worth knowing"; Cotswold Food Store and Café (www.cotswoldfoodstore.co.uk): The Cotswold Food Store and Café offers a huge variety of delicious local foods, ranging from locally sourced vegetables, meat, eggs and bread to charcuterie, hams and pates in its deli counter. The adjoining café offers freshly prepared meals by resident chef Sonya Kidney, along with home-made cakes, biscuits and light bites; Hamptons Fine Foods (www.hamptons-hampers.co.uk): Hamptons offer a wide range of quality foods to discerning customers. The shelves are packed with exclusive and delicious fine foods that one would not normally find in the mass outlets. A veritable Aladdin's cave. Hamptons specialise in gourmet hampers which can be collected from their shop or delivered direct.
  • This is a great Air BnB - location is right in the middle of town, with all amenities just a few mins walk away. The property is stylishly furnished and every little detail of what a guest may require seems to have been thoroughly thought through. Would recommend highly if you are visiting the Cotswolds.
