“A charming oasis in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

Veronica and I live in Australia and were planning a business/ holiday trip to UK and Europe. We had a vision of finding a character cottage in the centre of an historic village that had enough amenities to make it interesting and was within easy reach of tourist attractions and larger towns. Being close to an airport was also high on the list as we might have to hop over to Europe for business. Park House Cottage ticked all our boxes and some we hadn't even thought about. England has become a lot busier than I remember but the peace and tranquility of the cottage and of Stow on the Wold was a blessing. The cottage is separate and self contained, tucked behind the main house with its own secluded garden where we often worked from and had most of our meals. This also provided great security. It was also good to have a second bedroom to have friends and relatives come and visit. As an aside, we can recommend this as a strategy if you are visiting from overseas. The cottage had everything we could have wished for in comfort and amenities and our hosts Nick and Jenny were always on hand if we needed anything to make our stay perfect. They were probably the major unexpected bonus as we hadn't thought of a box called ' becoming friends with the landlord'. Stepping out into the street you are right in the heart of the village with only a short stroll to the market square. On our first walk around we counted thirty eating establishments, enough for us to try a different one each day. On our first night we arrived quite late and hungry and had a fabulous meal at The Bell. Veronica, who is vegetarian, was especially pleased to find such delicious and interesting vegetarian options in contrast to one or two token veggie dishes usually on offer. We probably eat there the most but we also loved the experience of Stow Lodge and having per-dinner drinks in the garden. The Talbot also has good food at reasonable prices. All of the places had something to offer so no matter what your taste you will find a place that suits you and plenty of choice. We stayed at Park House Cottage for a month and we were sad to say goodby to the place and to our hosts Nick and Jenny. Would we return? Absolutely, and probably for longer if we can. Jim and Veronica McGuire

“Perfect retreat”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2013

Thank you Nick & Jenny for a wonderful stay! 4 of us spent 3 nights in the cottage over New Year and had a brilliant time. It was completely stressless from start to finish with booking, payment, arrival & departure. The property itself is beautifully renovated with everything you need - pots, pans, linen - including an extensive range of VHS/books as well as a very tasteful iTunes library on the Mac! Reason enough to stay indoors (which we quite happily did). Since being back we have all said how much we would love to go back. It really is the perfect Cotwolds retreat. Highly recommended!
