  • "We had the most wonderful stay at Orchard House!"

    The location was perfect, especially for our dog as in a lovely quiet location with lots of fields to stretch his legs in plus so close to lots of places to visit. The house was gorgeous, especially the garden with the stream - we will be back :)

    Thank you for leaving us some great feedback. We're so pleased yourselves and your dog had such a lovely stay at Orchard House. We really hope to welcome you back again. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and in an ideal location to explore the Cotswolds."

    House was exactly as described online if not better and is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The owner provided many helpful details and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. All in all, we enjoyed a great week and will certainly recommend this cottage to friends and family and will not hesitate to re-book when we visit the area again.

    Thank you for such amazing feedback. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "A very nice cottage in a lovely location."

    Very well equipped and loved the attention to detail. Very comfy and homely. Only a couple of non serious issues we encountered that did not spoil our break. We could not find a non slip bathmat as advertised, for an elderly person and the outside chairs are rickety.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and will definitely work on the points mentioned. In fact the owner has subsequently purchased new patio furniture. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Manor cottages Property Owner

  • "Wonderful cottage."

    Fantastic location. The village is close to all the Cotswold “hot spots” without being in the heat of the tourism battle. Fabulous walking and a great pub on the doorstep. Fabulous to be able to walk from the cottage to Daylesford for the delightful walks, breakfast or lunch. The cottage itself was perfect. Wonderful kitchen (we cooked at home a lot and they had everything we needed). Stylish, comfy interior. Great bathrooms and bedroom. And we were lucky with the weather in April so the stone patio off the kitchen was our favorite spot in the morning and afternoons. I’d give the cottage more than 5 stars. Exceptional in every way. We will be booking two weeks again next year.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and made use of all the facilities both inside and out. We very much look forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fabulous property!"

    More spacious than expected and the location is absolutely perfect for what we wanted. Didn’t realise there was a pub 2 doors down so that was a bonus. The cottage had everything we needed and we felt so at home. We stayed in March so it was cold out, and we’d love to come back in the summer so we could enjoy the sunshine and outdoor seating. Truly excellent property.

    .. We have just come home after spending 4 memorable weeks at Orchard House and couldn’t be happier with our stay. The house is well taken care of by the owners and their management team; all of our communications were responded to immediately. The house is easy to live in and well equipped, the beds are quite comfortable too. And, when weather permitted we spent time in the garden as well as eating our meals. We love the location of Upper Oddington being close to Stow, Daylesford, and many other interesting villages and walking paths. The Horse and Groom next door is the perfect pub. We look forward to staying again next summer. Thank you for everything Ron and Beverly Scottsdale, AZ, USA

    Spacious, especially the large kitchen, lovely decor throughout and very clean. Beds were very comfortable and both bathrooms had powerful showers. Lovely big garden which was great for the kids. Location is great, only 5 minute drive to Stow and the large tesco and handy for lots of local attractions / villages. Upper Oddington is a very picturesque and peaceful location and lovely for walks. Hope we can go back to this cottage in the future as it is the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds!

  • "This is a beautiful cottage in a particularly lovely location and near to a great pub/restaurant."

    It is well equipped. The kitchen/dining room is very spacious and airy and the lounge is comfortable. Two of the three bedrooms - the double bedded rooms -are also spacious. My only criticisms are small ones which are summed up by the comment that there was a need for a bit of maintenance here and there. The grass in the back garden was overly long, which meant it was very wet to walk on. The lightbulbs in the lamps in the lounge had gone but (despite a previous visitor also mentioning this) were not replaced, and the door handle between the kitchen and the hall was extremely loose. Whilst we were there, water started to come through the ceiling too! To be fair, this was quickly and effectively dealt with by a plumber and electrician organised by Sykes, but the plumber commented that the leak (due to a break in the sealant around the bath) had clearly been happening 'for quite a long time'. All that said, this IS a very nice cottage, with many, many positives, and we had a very good break!

    Thank you for your helpful feedback. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully everything mentioned has now been taken care of. The gardener and maintenance team now visit weekly again - as they did pre-lockdowns. There has also been a complete review and refresh across the board. Property Owner

  • "Although the cottage was really nice and comfortable and exceptional layout - very spacious, a few simple checks were needed as SIX light bulbs had gone - 4 of which were in the lounge which meant it was a bit dark in the evening as the lighting was ceiling spot lights and table lamps."

    There was a box of light bulbs in the utility cupboard but they either didn't fit or didn't work. The cottage would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems as there are steps between each room downstairs and into two of the bedrooms upstairs - not mentioned in the detail of the cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Orchard House. We take all feedback very seriously and i will forward your comments onto the Housekeeping Team to review. If anything like the bulbs have gone, please contact us next time, as we could have sent some more bulbs over to you. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

The property was very cosy, comfortable and suited the 5 of us nicely. There is something for everyone whether that be places of historical interest, walking, shopping or eating out. I had requested one of the bedrooms be set up as a twin room instead of a three quarter, although on arrival an oversight meant it had been set up as a three quarter. Following a call to the office, the housekeeper had arrived at the property within the hour [we would have done it ourselves although bedding was stored in another part of the property that was secured]. Excellent customer service that could not be faulted. Would happily recommend to others as a relaxing and comfortable place to stay.

  • "We generally loved our stay at the property, but there are a couple of maintenance issues that we would like to raise."

    There were a number of light bulbs not working throughout the property, the most inconvenient being the lights to the property entrance. This made key collection from the safe at night extremely difficult due to it being pitch black! Perhaps a quick bulb check could be made before guests arrive? Also, on our arrival the refuse and recycling bins were almost full. We were lead to believe that the bin collection woupd be during our stay and the bins were placed onto the road, presumably by the housekeeper. However this wasn’t the case as the bin collection is fortnightly. As a consequence, when we left the bins were over flowing. Perhaps provision should be made for refuse to be removed after guests have left the property? Finally, the Roman blind in the kitchen was found to be broken. This and the non working light bulbs I reported directly to the office, during our stay.

    The issue with the outside lights and blinds have both been addressed. Apologies for having to arrive in the pitch black Property Owner

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
