    It was a very comfortable stay. Everything worked (which isn't always a given) and everything was of high quality. The location was great, quiet enough away from the main roads, but only a couple of minutes from the middle of Stow.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Spinners Cottage. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and we hope you made the most of the lovely Restaurants in Stow.

    It was the perfect location, spotlessly clean and all the furnishings etc were of a really high quality. It was my dads 83rd birthday whilst we were there and it was perfect. It was really warm and cosy after coming in from a really cold day of walking. Would definitely come back for our next trip to the Cotswolds.

  • "A lovely cottage, much improved by the owners."

    The improvements they have made look very smart against this traditional cottage. Great to have a good size welcome lobby to kick off your shoes and hang up your coats. Very cosy living room and practical kitchen with high tech appliances that are easy to use. Steep stairs but comfortable bedroom with an en-suite and the main bathroom. We had a lovely time relaxing here after days spent exploring the Cotswolds. Parking nearby very useful as well. Do take care when stepping out onto the road from the gated front garden as some drivers do tend to ignore this is a small residential street and drive too fast.

    We had a comfortable, enjoyable week in spite of the very cold weather. Would recommend it Only points - I assumed from the listing with off road parking that the parking was on the property and was surprised to see it was at the church hall and not available at certain times. The TV and cooker were top of the range but we had great difficulty using them just couldn't get some channels on the TV. Maybe need an idiot guide for the technically challenged

  • "The cottage was really lovely and the location is fantastic."

    One of the reasons I booked was because I had seen a lot of comments about how clean the cottage was. The towels and bedding were lovely and clean however some of the surface areas I didn’t think were very clean. The kettle was absolutely full of limescale, really badly in fact so we had to boil pans of water if we wanted a hot drink. The television only worked if you were using Netflix or one of the apps, normal television did not work. The double was was extremely uncomfortable, there seemed to be an issue with the mattress in that there was a bump in the middle of it, so good nights sleep didn’t happen. We were left a bottle of wine and biscuits which was a really lovely touch, so thank you so much for that.

    Thank you Emily for the feedback and I enjoyed chatting it through with you as its really important to us that everyone who visits the cottage has a lovely time. We hadn't realised there was a problem with the kettle and this has now been replaced so thank you for bringing it to our attention. As mentioned, both mattresses are actually brand new Vi Spring mattresses and cost £2,500. I will check them over for any bumps / faults and if so they will certainly be replaced. The TV is a new Samsung Smart TV and you're correct that the signals in Stow can be patchy, so I just wanted to make sure there was an internet option as well for everyone. Apologies though as I hadn't left out the instruction manual, but it's there now. I have also shared your comments with our housekeepers re some of the surface areas for as you say they have very high standards and pride in their work . Thank you again Emily for taking the time to provide your feedback and to chat, and so pleased you are looking to come back to the cottage again. Property Owner

  • "Your General Feedback Would you like to provide feedback about the holiday property?"

    This will be shared with the property owner. Beautifully appointed and recent updates have obviously been done with a lot of thought to presentation and style (updated photos on the site would be helpful!) by the owners. Great location in heart of Stow with easy walk to shops, pubs and restaurants and all key sites in the Cotswolds within 30 mins drive. Use of church car park good addition as road outside the cottage busy during working hours. Cottage was immaculately clean, piping hot water at all times (we were there in a heatwave so can’t vouch for the heating!) good provision of basics and the wine and shortbread a nice welcoming touch. So, what’s the catch?? This is a typical Cotswolds cottage and the major drawback is that the cottage is absolutely tiny with room sizes and ceiling heights to match. My husband and I stayed for a week so the lack of decent wardrobe space or drawers was a problem. As a result would recommend 3 adults max. and only a couple if you want to spend your break in some comfort. The staircase was borderline dangerous (steep and slippy) and this should have been highlighted on the listing to help those with mobility issues. Couple of maintenance requirements - missing bottle shelf in fridge, shower head in en suite needs descaling/replacing and outdoor furniture needs to be cleaned to same standard as inside. I feel sad writing all that but the lack of comfort did take the edge off a lovely week’s stay.

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.
