  • "The cottage is in a fantastic central location in Stow."

    It is very well kept, with a modern kitchen & bathroom. Our dog was a big fan of the under floor heating! The cottage is probably smaller than we anticipated. We stayed for 5 nights & the weather was particularly wet & windy. So we probably spent more time inside the cottage than we usually would. The 2 seater sofa and bed are both small & not overly comfortable. The shower is very good but again small if your are more than average height. There is good storage & wardrobe space in the bedroom, with plenty of hangers. We had no problems finding a park space across the road from the cottage (near the postbox). Stow is lovely, so this is a lovely little cottage for a central location

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at 1 Manor Cottage. We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us over New Year and i hope you made the most of the lovely Shops and Restaurants in Stow. We would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is beautifully cared for, perfectly located and does exactly what it says on the tin."

    The reasons behind our 3 star review are purely personal I.e., we have a reactive puppy and although we are training to ensure he gets used to all sorts of unexpected noises, the walls are particularly thin and everytime someone opened the gate or went up the stairs, it set him off. We assumed that the lack of space would suit us, as we don't require all that much however we found that the bed and sofa were just too small to relax fully (we are 6ft and 5ft8), the shower was rather difficult and I opted not to wash my hair for ease.. overall though, it really is a wonderful little place and if it were a little bigger, we would 10000% be back.

    Thank you for your honest feedback, we are sorry that the property did not fully meet your needs. We do our best to provide detailed information through descriptions and photographs to assist customers in their decision. We are pleased that you were happy with the excellent condition of the property and its location. We hope that your puppy continues to get on well with his training. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Lovely surprises when we arrived Milk and wine in the fridge, snacks and fresh coffee to welcome us. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. Lovely large fluffy towels. Every thing was comfortable and cosy. We both slept really well in the bed. Thank you

  • "Lovely house on a super location."

    Fully equiped, and the welcome gifts were higly appreciated. One thing; if you both are tall (which we were not) you might have a problem with the size of the furniture (bed, sofa, chairs). The sofabed doesn’t sit very comfortable.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a good location to Stow and the Cotswolds."

    The property had everything we needed and we managed to park outside the property without any issues. The only slight negative for us was the sofa was a bit small (we’re both quite tall), hence not full stars for comfort. It was very clean and modern with good facilities.

    I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving the cottage so tidy on departure. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was cosy and welcoming, in a great location, very clean and we appreciated the wine and food freebies."

    The only things we didn't like were the bed as we found it uncomfortable (but that's just personal preference) and found the white gate/main entrance unsuitable for our dog who is sensitive to noise (we expected some noise, but it was louder and more frequent than we thought it would be). Overall however it was a lovely stay :-)

    Thank you for your feedback and I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Very well situated and equipped cottage."

    Small, but suited us perfectly for a week. The owner had thought of everything to make life easy, even batteries for the remotes! The only small criticism is the sofa was not particularly comfy, but this didn't affect our enjoyment. We would love to come back!

    I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy on departure. New sofa cushions are on their way so hopefully you will find the sofa more comfortable next time! With best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The cottage itself was beautifully presented and immaculate, although it took bijou to a different level."

    Proximity to Stow centre excellent. There were however a few elements that could be improved upon :- Bathroom mirror - At 5'3" I had to stand on tiptoe to apply makeup and then to dry hair had to use the plug on landing and again stand on tip toe to be able to see what I was doing. A long mirror on the wall space on the landing would solve this and the bathroom mirror/cupboard should be lowered. Plugs - in the bedroom, we had to slightly move a chest of drawers to get to the double plug. There was trailing lead under the bed but was very awkward to access as bed so close to the window wall. Most people need to charge phones/watches nowadays so a double plug either side of the bed is definitely warranted. Sofa - extremely uncomfortable to sit on, leaves no chance of being able to relax in the property. The TV also far too small. Would recommend looking at the comfort aspect of this room. Although we are fairly active and enjoy being out and about, sometimes if weather doesn't permit this it would be nice to relax in comfort. Parking - I initially booked this property as the photo clearly showed a pull in/car port area by the side of the cottage for a car parking space. It says on-road parking so did presume that this was it ie. parking on the road by the cottage. It is only when you read the print after that it states there is no parking with the cottage. This is not clearly obvious by the very deceiving photograph.

    Thank you for your feedback. I’m so pleased you thought the cottage was beautifully presented - thank you for leaving it clean and tidy on departure. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was a haven to us after our Air B&B was an utter disaster."

    Sykes managed to get in touch with the owner on a Sunday and she kindly accepted us at short notice for the next day. It was highly appreciated (and a relief) that we had someplace to stay and meant we could continue with our holiday. The cottage was clean and had everything you could need. The little treats left to welcome us were very thoughtful. I placed 4* for comfort, as the bed and sofa were harder than we are used to, but that is a personal issue and nothing against the property. I would highly recommend this cottage for a stay in the Cotswolds.

    I’m so pleased I could help. Thank you for your kind words and for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy on departure. Property Owner

About the location


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.
