Property Description

This stylish, detached holiday cottage is in a very quiet location but just a few minutes from the heart of one of the most notable of the Cotswold villages and is an ideal base for exploring the area. It lies close to the owner’s home in an elevated position with nearby lovely views across the surrounding countryside, and endless walking opportunities. The famous Roman Fosse Way makes the northern and southern Cotswold boundaries accessible, as are famous gardens such as Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate, and the arboretum of Batsford. Stratford-upon-Avon, Cirencester, Oxford and Bath are all an easy drive. Good pubs, restaurants, individual shops and the old market square are within very close walking distance. Shops 100 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely cottage and ideal location. Would normally be abit wary of booking a cottage that is right next to the owners home, but no need as the owners are lovely people and don’t bother you at all, we did stop to say hello a few time’s and have a brief chat but never felt like we were being watched in any way. Would love to return. March 2012.
  2. We absolutely loved the cottage, it was so comfortable and surprisingly warm considering there were only a few radiators dotted around the place. We loved the location, privately set back from the road but only a few minutes walk to lots of lovely little shops. Feb 2012.
  3. Lovely cottage to sleep 2 (first floor bed/bathroom on a kind of mezzanine open-plan arrangement). Comfy, up to date furnishings with everything provided. Set next to the owners house a few mins walk from Stow - great location. Owners very friendly when we bumped into them. Jan 2012.
  4. A fantastic cottage to hide away from the cut and thrust of everyday living. The owners could not have made us more welcome and you need not bring anything with you except yourselves. We keep returning so need I say more? Sept 2011.
  5. Ideal for a couple wanting a quiet and peaceful holiday with all amenities within walking distance. Sept 2011.
  6. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks spent at this beautiful cottage. A short stroll took you into Stow on the Wold so no trouble finding a parking space. Janet & Colin the owners made us very welcome and had everything that you required at the cottage.We visited many beautiful churches in the different villages and would recommend a visit to see the stained glass windows in St. Mary,s Church at Fairford. Bourton-on-the-Water is worth visiting just to go to The Old Manse Hotel for their Fish & Chips. Aug 2011.
  7. Ideal location for touring the area or just staying at Stow. A well equipped property that has everything you need. Ticks all the boxes. Aug 2011.
  8. The Retreat was just our taste clean, modern, comfortable and an ideal location for visiting the local area. This was a lovely place to stay and would recommend it to friends and family, the only down side for us was there was no gate on the garden so our dog had to stay on the lead. June 2011.
  9. High standard throughout and well situated for village ameties. Feb 2011.
  10. Excellent. Nov 2010.
  11. Ample off-road parking. Easy & clean electric heating. Upstairs and down toilets. Pleasant, unobtrusive owners. Apart from an initial hiccup with the TV, everything worked fine. Will use it again. Oct 2010.
  12. The standard and cleanliness of the property were in my opinion as good as I have experienced. The owner who lived on site was there if you needed her but did she not bother you. Sept 2010.
  13. This was a lovely cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Sept 2010.
  14. Clean and modern with all the facilities that you would need for a pleasant stay. All in all an excellent place to stay. Highly recommended. Aug 2010.
  15. Extremely well equipped and quiet and private location, few minutes walk to main shops, bars and restaurants. Aug 2010.
  16. Well presented, clean and comfortable. July 2010.
  17. Immaculately clean, well-appointed, modern, with everything you could need...and more. Only two minutes’ walk to the town centre square with all its charm and facilities. The owners were so kind and helpful, with two friendly dogs of their own which made friends with mine! Very close to nearby good walks for the dog too. July 2010.
  18. Compact bedroom but everything there that we could need for our break. June 2010.
  19. The property was excellent, in a good position in Stow and a good location for visiting local areas. May 2010.
  20. It is obvious (even to the uninitiated) that much thought has been put into the way this cottage has been designed, decorated and furnished. This is not surprising when you meet Janet and Colin (the owners) who live next door in a beautiful Cotswold House. They are the "perfect" hosts and such lovely people. The Retreat Cottage is without doubt the best for my wife and I in 5 stays in the area. We wanted to book again for early September but it is full... no wonder! May 2010.
