  • "A very private cottage just right for the two of us for our three night stay."

    There is a Wooden shed which was great to store our bikes in. Angus the beautiful black horse in the paddock was a delight to see and could have starred in a tv add!

  • "Great place to stay, has everything you need, easy 10 min walk in to the centre of Stow."

    Not the fastest internet in the world, but other than that can't say much against it. We liked that it was detached from other surrounding houses and was nicely decorated.

    MartinJul 2020

    SueMar 2020

  • "My partner and I had a lovely stay at the Oxbow Cottage, which has beautiful views and fields either side."

    Stow On The Wold is a short walk away and there are many activities to do in the local area. The Cottage was immaculate and charming.

    AlexMar 2020

  • "The cottage is stocked with everything that you could need on a week away and logs can be purchased at £6 a basket the money goes to charity."

    The location is brilliant only a short walk in to Stow, take a torch if walking back from the town late, however their was one in the cottage. The location is very peaceful,relaxing and the owners are friendly and helpful.

    Amazing location. Beautiful scenery. Great access to Stow. As for Oxbow, warm and cosy, a lot of privacy, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom!

    SammyNov 2019

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, everything we needed."

    Beautifully located, just a short walk to local amenities. Very dog friendly, lovely field for the dog to run around in safely. Very friendly owners. Look forward to returning to this beautiful area.

    ClaireNov 2019

  • "Loved this little cottage!"

    Thoughtfully put together, amazing how a small two-roomed rectangle can have so much charm and character. Everything you need for comfort and convenience has been thought of; the location was peaceful, pretty, and couldn't have been better for dog owners. Plenty to do without getting the car out so long as you like a bit of country walking. Decent pubs, shops and supermarket all within easy reach - by foot for the keen, short drive if you prefer.

    VikkiOct 2019

  • "We were able visit lots of tourist attractions from Park Farm."

    Did not have to travel far. Comfortable cottage with good kitchen and bathroom facilities.

    ValerieOct 2019

  • "Fantastic cottage in a great location with lots of facilities to ensure we had a lovely holiday."

    We were made to feel very welcome by owners who also provided knowledge of local area. Would definitely recommend.

    SueSep 2019

  • "A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings."

    The paddock is great for dogs to play. A relaxing place.

    PaulineAug 2019

  • "Very quiet position."

    Private away from other cottages which was perfect for us. We took two small dogs which was ideal for them . Enclosed paddock attached with lots of doggy toys and activities for them to enjoy. Stow is only ten minutes walk away plenty of places to eat , or like us great setting around cottage to eat in. Easy reach to explore surrounding villages . Ideal for two people who might find it a bit cramped if three shared, even though there's a fold up bed provided. Overall I would definitely recommend for quiet relaxing holiday. Not for party lovers.

    AnthonyAug 2019

  • "Oxbow provided everything my husband, dogs and l needed."

    It was handy for the main routes around the Cotswolds, very handy for amenities in Stow. The paddocks on both sides were brilliant for our dogs and very secure. I will be looking to book again next year, as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    BarbaraAug 2019

  • "Lovely walks the dog loved walk so peaceful and the walk along the unadapted road to Stow was so peaceful."

    AnnJul 2019

    GaryMar 2019

  • "Well situated, very friendly, paddock for dogs was a real bonus, bed was a little small (only a double), but overall an excellent stay we will be back."

    PaulFeb 2019

  • "Booked a 3 night stay in the Oxbow for myself, partner and dog."

    It was delightful! The property was clean and well furnished with a lovely, comfortable bed. Nice and warm. Logs were supplied which we used in the evenings to make it super cosy. Our dog loved the paddock to run around in which was next to the Oxbow. Very quiet which we liked. Nice area and we did 3 walks from the Oxbow with the maps provided. Found this useful as we left the car while we tired out our border collie, Jessie. Some lovely little hamlets. We met the owners who were very nice and helpful. We hope to return in the future. I would definitely recommend Park Farm Holidays. 2 satisfied pensioners and a 2 year old (boisterous) dog!

    Stow - on - Wold is only a short walk away from the farm and provides an interesting range of shops, pubs, tea shops and restaurants.
