Getting around

Birch House is a great base for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds by car or on foot! There are lots of nice walks that you can do straight from the house. It is also close to both Moreton-in-Marsh and Kingham train stations.

Interaction with guest

We offer self check-in with a code lock on the front door. This means you don't have to worry about arriving at a set time and each member of your party can come and go as they please, without having to worry about sharing a door key! Dawn, the housekeeper, lives just behind Birch House and is happy to help with any queries, or address any issues you may have during you stay. Dawn recently replaced a defective kettle within an hour and we were able to replace a faulty dishwasher on Christmas Eve, with just a few hours notice! We do pride ourselves on our ability to respond and if there is an issue that needs addressing, we do kindly ask guests to raise it with Dawn during their stay, so we can rectify things quickly and effectively.

Very Good

“Brilliant Cotswold holiday!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2017

We stayed as 5 adults and 2 small children this trip. It was a return visit for us and again the accommodation was clean and well presented. There were a couple of minor jobs around the place that need doing and a few missing kitchen essentials (we like to cook) which is why we have not given the excellent rating. Having said that we had a fantastic holiday and the location is superb!

“Birch House”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2017

Really fabulous house, spotlessly clean and tidy. Myself and six other mature ladies stayed for three nights. Well equipped kitchen - just needs a couple more mixing bowls and maybe liquid soap in the bathrooms. Beds are very comfortable. Easy walk into the town centre.

“large attractive house in perfect situation”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2013

our family of 5[5 adults+2 small children] found birch house a fabulous place to stay. the house was spotless,large and thoughtfully set up. a welcome package was on the table,shelves stacked with child and adult games,and the cupboards contained tea coffee etc,even a coffee machine was available for use. the owner was extremely helpful whenever we needed anything before and during our stay. the beautiful village of stow was a 7 minute walk away[by a lane way at the top of the street] and the many villages of the cotswolds were well within reach. i would happily go back here.

“Fantastic location and lovely homely touches”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2012

This house was perfect for our girls weekend away. We parked the car on Friday and did not use it again till we left on Sunday. The house is ideally located for exploring Stow and with lots of great shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs we had everything we needed for a great weekend. The house is lovely with a great kitchen with large table, the rooms are all good sized and well equiped.

“Home-away-from-home in Stow”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

We absolutely loved The Birch House! It felt just like a home-away-from-home. The cottage has a large living room and kitchen on the ground floor with everything you could ever need to cook. There are also a full-size washer & dryer for laundry, which worked great. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms (2 en-suite). We stayed in the "master" bedroom with en-suite bathroom. (The cottage can sleep 8-10, but it was also perfect for the two of us!) The bed was very comfortable, and there were plenty of pillows to choose from to find the right one. The only complaint is that the television was set a little low to watch from bed; but that's only an issue if wanting to lounge in bed and watch TV (there's a great TV in the living room with really comfy couches to lounge on as well.) The bathroom was nice and roomy with separate shower & tub - it was always the warmest room in the house as well, with its nice heated towel rack! The parking was a breeze - our rental car ended up being a bit big for the driveway, but we never had trouble getting a spot around the side of the house. The combination code door-lock is ingenious! We never had to worry about remembering to take the key (just the code, which wasn't a problem!) The other great thing about The Birch House is its location. It seems to sit in the middle of a neighborhood with everyday folks, which is neat. Plus it's just a 4-5 minute walk into town down a couple of small old sheep-rows that are pretty well-lit at night. We enjoyed the walk to/from the town for dinner each night. A great thanks to Julian for providing so much great information about Stow and the house! The little town map definitely came in handy, especially when we first arrived and had to actually find the cottage. All the info about restaurants and grocery stores was spot on and very helpful. If we are ever back in Stow, we would not hesitate to book the Birch House again!

“Lovely comfortable house in an ideal location”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2012

We stayed at Birch House with a group of friends and their small children. The house was clean, spacious, well equipped and comfortable, its an ideal house for families or a group of friends staying together, lots of room for everyone and ample parking for our three cars. The main bonus for us was its location, the shops, restaurants and pubs are a short stroll away - easy to pop out for forgotten shopping and more importantly there is no need to worry about taxis or having a designated driver when you fancy a tipple with lunch or dinner. It's also perfect for exploring the rest of the beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. Will definitely be back.

“Lovely cottage, in great location for walks, shops and restaurants”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

Lovely cottage in great location for walks, shops and restaurants. Very well equipped in the kitchen, board games and dvds available for rainy days. Small selection of kids toys to keep them entertained. Me and 7 of my girl friends stayed here for 2nights, with 8 girls having 4 bathrooms was ideal! Very spacious and comfortable..would highly recommend! Nice little touches such as cake and milk for cups of tea on arrival!!

“Great location, great for group get togethers”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

Birch House is brilliantly located, just steps from the main square and more real ale pubs with great food than you can raise a glass to. We loved the size of the house - perfect for group get togethers. The kitchen table was large enough for 8 people (or more) to spend many happy hours all together around it, and having 4 bathrooms made a group stay practical and comfortable. Having the washer dryer was another great practical touch. The beds and sofas were all super comfortable. The bedroom carpets could do with a clean though and it was a problem for us that the bins only get emptied once every 2 weeks and the previous people clearly hadn't put the bins out as requested as the bins were all completely full when we arrived, so disposing of garbage was tricky. Maybe the local housekeeper / supervisor could make sure the bins are put out on time? Other than that, great rental.

“Fabulous House”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2012

Our stay at Birch House coincided with my 60th birthday (end of January) and we couldn't have chosen a better location. We arrived on an icy cold evening and the house felt warm and welcoming. Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Conveniently situated just a few minutes walk from the market square with a good selection of pubs and restaurants. We would definitely return to Birch House in the future.

“An excellent property in a central location”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2012

Fantastic property that met every need for our party of 5 adults and a 20 month old. All facilities and utilities were first class, heaps of space and the property was well maintained. A lovely location for both the village shops and pubs and Stow in the Wold is central to all of the surrounding villages. Great for day tripping. We will visit again in the summer.
