My husband and 2 of our friends stayed at Honey Cottage for the weekend and can honestly say we loved every minute. The cottage is exactly how you would imagine one to be in a little village in the cotswolds with its cosy firplace and rustic interior. The whole cottage interior is designed perfectly inkeeping with the cotswold theme and the owner is so helpful you do not need to worry about anything. The little extras such as the convenience cupboard and information folders are great. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and the actual cottage itself in a perfect location in Stow on the Wold with local amenities all within walking distance. There is plenty to do in the area with beautiful walks in every direction. The only downside is the shower, it really is just a dribble but apparantley water pressure is bad throughout the whole of the village so you just have to grin and bear it, for a weekend its fine.....a week may be a different story especially if you have long hair like me as it will take you forever to wash it. Despite this I would still recommend Honey Cottage and will definitely stay there again.

Honey Cottage is a beautiful character cottage centrally located in Stow and is a great base for exploring the Cotswald area. It has three levels and a very narrow steep stone spiral staircase which was fine for us but may be difficult for some. (We didn't attempt to get luggage upstairs). The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed. Stow can get very busy and we couldn't get a car park close to the cottage when we arrived. After business hours, we parked in the bank's carpark which is a couple of doors down from the cottage. Only other minor complaint was the lack of water pressure in the shower. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic cottage in the heart of a beautiful little town. This property really is home from home with all the comforts you could ask for. The cottage is full of character - on walking in, my three year old decided it was going to be known as the 'cave' cottage due to the lovely stone spiral staircase leading to the first floor.
Only criticism, if I had to give one, would be that the staircases are a little precarious for small children - we taught ours to go down backwards though, and he was fine!
A must whilst in Stow is The Old Butchers as recommended by the owner, as well as the the Talbot.
Thank you for leaving your review and we are pleased you had a nice stay in Honey Cottage and enjoyed Stow and The Old Butchers. We hope you return again in the future and thanks again.
