Thank you for your lovely comments and really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Honey Cottage. There are always a few little quirks that come with a very old cottage that has lots of original character, which I think overall adds to the charm - really pleased you enjoyed your stay and had a nice time in Stow. Hope to hear from you again in the future.

"Absolutely Lovely Cottage in Amazing Location!"
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.
Thank you for leaving the feedback, pleased you enjoyed your stay and thanks for recommending Honey Cottage to your friends! Re your comments on the shower, we have taken a while to respond as a pump has now been fitted to increase water pressure and we wanted to monitor its success with guests before responding back. Honey cottage has an electric shower over the bath so this will never be as powerful as a power shower, however, the pump has significantly increased water pressure/regulated water flow and after trying it ourselves on a number of occasions, we can confirm the pump has been a big success!
We look forward to you returning again.

"Well appointed cottage with a nice Cotswalds feel"
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.

"Honey Cottage was excellent accomodation for our stay in Stow-On-The-Wold"
Honey Cottage is very central to Stow-On-The-Wold a great cottage with shops/coffe shops/pubs and restaurants all within easy reach. The cottage is very well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Would definately want to make a return visit.

"a wonderful weekend at a beautiful cottage"
We arrived at Honey Cottage on a damp and wet Friday night in November but upon walking through the front door our spirits immediately lifted. The cottage is simply stunning, fabulous original stone floors and a huge inglenook fireplace with a log burner. The kitchen is well equipped ( the cottage owners have obviously taken great care over the equipment - there are for example champagne flutes and an ice bucket!) and both bedrooms are beautiful. We slept in the double room a the top of the cottage - a fantastic hand carved pine bed, very comfortable mattress and a lovely view to the church.
Stow itself is a wonderful place for a break - we ate at The Talbot on Friday night and then at the old butcher's on Saturday - both places are to be recommended. In summation, it was a wonderful weekend, the cottage was clean, well furnished, truly a home from home and Stow is in a great spot for all the touristy bits of the Cotswolds.
