    Due to the Government warnings for the over 70's regarding travel and social contact we had to cancel the whole Cottage holiday at very short notice We do not expect a full refund but would appreciate a combined offer from Manor Cottages and the Cottage owner We look forward to a time when normality returns and we can once again enjoy a cottage holiday with manor Cottages

    Thank you very much for your comments we are so pleased to see that you have managed to rebook your stay at Stowe cottage for dates in 2021 Property Owner

  • "Shower was totally inadequate for main shower-4 people having to share the smallest shower I have ever seen."

    It also leaked onto floor-something other guests commented on last summer but nothing been done. Bedding was appalling-flattest pillows which were not fit for purpose.The duvets were poor quality and very tired and well worn with the stuffing broken down. You talk about ‘COVID safe & clean’ but this bedding hasn’t been replaced for years & years and definitely not since reopened after COVID and is quite simply not acceptable for a rental cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage in brilliant location."

    We contacted Cat over a problem with the oven. With it being 2 days before Christmas, we didn't expect a brand new oven within the next 2 hours. Cat went above and beyond to sort it out. Welcome tray with cake and a real effort with Christmas decorations. Parking is real bonus. Can't fault it, would highly recommend.

    We are very happy to hear that you had an enjoyable holiday at Stow Cottage over Christmas. Thank you for this lovely feedback, we hope you decide to holiday in the Cotswolds with us in the future. Property Owner

  • "Stow Cottage was absolutely lovely, the perfect base to visit all areas of the Cotswolds."

    The cottage was exactly as described and all amenities provided for. The bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch. The only issues we had during our stay was the fact that there was no welcome pack in the property so we had no idea of where to put all the various bins on collection day plus we had to sort out the previous occupants rubbish as they had put many items in the wrong bags. I contacted the owner who provided the necessary information. In every cottage we have stayed in previously there has always been a welcome folder for things like Wi-fi passwords etc. Luckily as computer engineers we knew where to look for this sort of thing. I also had to advise the owner that the dishwasher didn’t open without the kick board coming off, I found this out when it landed on my big toe! Again we have had advised the owner who was unaware of this problem. We would definitely use this cottage again and hope to be back in a couple of years.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback on Stow Cottage. Due to Covid 19 owners were advised to remove certain items such as welcome folders from the properties, we apologise for the inconvenience this caused you. Thank you for contacting the owner during your stay so they were able to provide you with the information you required. We hope you return to the cottage in the future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Great location with the benefit of off-road parking, very well equipped accommodation."

    Only slightly frustrating elements were having to put the rubbish out for recycling for the previous occupants as well as our own at the end of our stay. Also a number of switches had black tape over them which obviously shouldn’t be used, but more of why. This is especially on a 3 way switch, were there electrical issues in the property ? There were no notifications to determine this.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry you had to deal with the rubbish. The black tape is on the switches as they need to remain on at all times as they are outside lights or the extractor fan. There is no problem with the electrics at all. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Stow Cottage Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage idealy located only a 2 min walk to the shops."

    The property on the whole was in good order through out, just a couple of small items need some attention, the taps in the on suite shower room need new washers and the hand shower in main bathroom was leaking also the taps were so hot after running a bath we had to put a towel around it to turn it off. There are signs up stating that the water is very hot but i would have thought the boiler temp could be turned down. Just one last thing all the window hinges need a good spray of WD40 as they are hard to open and close. These negative things are only a a couple of hours job but if nobody tells the owner nothing gets done, but saying all of that it was a very quiet area and a lovely cottage and would go there again.

  • "The house is very well-appointed and in a quiet location; access information for spot on."

    The quietness may soon be compromised as the allotments which were behind the house, are no fenced off for building. Parking is tight unless you have a small car. The dishwasher hadn't been emptied, nor had the recycling bins in the kitchen. This was at odds with everything else. Dishwasher tablets were listed but nor there. It is in a very good location for visits to most places in the Cotswolds and regardless of weather, there is plenty to do.

    Having stayed in the cottage previously, the new furniture etc. downstairs is an improvement as is the new smart TV. It was well decorated for the festive season with a beautiful Christmas tree. We had a relaxing time at the cottage. Some small improvements could be made such as replacing the shower head in the en suite, providing larger bath towels and having better quality bed linen but overall it’s a lovely place to 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.
