  • "Jess, the owner is very kind and most helpful."

    Her attention to detail in the house is finely done and upscale. The house is nicely situated for lovely walks with only 1/2 mile distance to Stow-on-the-Wold.

  • "Great location of the cottage."

    About 15 minutes walk into stow centre. The cottage had all the amenities required for our stay. We had good information provided by the owners who were very helpful. We stayed over Christmas so had snow and owners were good to offer help if needed to clear the drive ready for our departure. Nick

    JulianDec 2020

  • "Great cottage, nice walks, lovely town centre in Stowe."

    JasonAug 2020

  • "We stayed in Stonewell for the full week and the weather wasn’t great, particularly at the beginning."

    The meant that we spent a lot of time in the cottage. Four adults and a toddler. We found it to be very spacious, comfortable and really well equipped. Nearly forgot to add we had 2 dogs also and not once did we feel cramped. The nearby traffic free tarmac lane is a real plus for dog owners. We wouldn’t hesitate to return in the future.

  • "We stayed here for the Christmas week and couldn't have been happier."

    Stonewell has a peaceful outlook over the hills, yet is an easy 10 min walk to Stow on the Wold - excellent for those trips to the pub or a nose around the shops. The farm cat kept us entertained when we sat around the log fire in the evenings. The cottage is a good size with a spacious lounge and a very well-equipped kitchen/dining. The washer/dryer is a bonus for those travelling. We'd happily stay here again.

    RachelJan 2020

  • "Stonewell is a fabulous property with a 'well' in the lounge which is a fantastic feature."

    There is everything you need to enable a perfect stay in the country. Fantastic location - Stow is just a short walk away to some lovely pubs and restaurants, most are dog friendly and welcoming.

  • "We have a family weekend every year, I would highly recommend it."

    LindaDec 2019

  • "Peaceful short break."

    Comfortable, spacious cottage in lovely location. Cat was very friendly too! This was my second visit. Highly recommended.

    CarolOct 2019

  • "This is our third holiday staying in Stonewell and, as on the other occasions, the cottage provided us with a haven of peace and tranquillity from which to explore the Cotswolds."

    TrevorSep 2019

  • "A lovely well laid out bungalow set in such peaceful countryside yet just a short stroll to the town of Stow on the Wold."

    A real escape from the hustle and bustle of town life. It is well placed for visits to many other Cotswold destinations and places of interest. The choice is yours - relax and sit and admire the view or take a short drive to enjoy what the area has to offer.

    NevilleSep 2019

  • "The cottage was perfect!"

    Very comfortable! The view was amazing and so near Stow. Will definitely return!

    ChrisSep 2019

  • "Great bungalow that is well located and well equipped."

    It has everything you need for a great holiday in Stow. 2 minutes drive from the High Street and near many local attractions. Very clean and relaxing

    JohnAug 2019

  • "A well-equipped cottage in a peaceful setting, centrally located for exploring the Cotswolds."

    The patio area with table and chairs has a lovely view. Maps are provided for walks and there is an excellent folder with information on places to visit. We would love to stay again next year.

    ElaineAug 2019

  • "What a wonderful place."

    Fantastic view, everything thought of. Very central for days out. Would love to go back.

    AnneMay 2019

  • "Delightful, extremely well-equipped cottage in a lovely quiet rural setting with wonderful views."

    Short, attractive tree lined walk into Stow to buy groceries or to eat. Plenty of choice for other walks, maps of which are hanging on the coat pegs in the cottage. We enjoyed the one to the pretty village of Broadwell where we had Sunday lunch in The Fox Inn, which overlooks the large green. popular place to eat so advise booking a table, dogs welcome. Sad to leave, but we have already booked another stay for July.

    CarolineMay 2019

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Stonewell."

    The cottage is in a stunning location yet within a short off-road walk from Stow, ideal for us having two disabled daughters and a dog. There are plentiful dog-walking options from the cottage as well. The cottage is spacious, very comfortable and well-equipped and proved a very good base from which to visit a host of places from Oxford and Blenheim to Broadway and Chipping Camden. We would love to come again.

    PatrickMay 2019

  • "This a delightful property in a stunning part of the world."

    It has everything that you need in the cottage, even a well sunk into the lounge floor. We will be back again.

    MarkApr 2019

  • "Enjoyed an absolute delightful vacation in this lovely and spacious cottage in a superb setting."

    Even the weather was kind to us in April. The accommodation was first class and the facilities excellent. Everything needed for an enjoyable stay was provided.

    RobertApr 2019

  • "We have been staying in Stonewell for several years now, it’s like a second home to us."

    It's a pre-Christmas break for all the family. Everything you need, perfect!

    LindaDec 2018

  • "We had a lovely break in the Cotswolds staying at Stonewell earlier this month."

    The cottage had all we needed and was so easy to find. It's the first time I've not got lost on the way to a holiday cottage! If you're visiting out of season, I recommend Sudeley Castle as they are open until the end of the year unlike National Trust places. It was an excellent day out.

    MelissaNov 2018

  • "Maugersbury is a lovely place to be and Stonewell is an excellent cottage to enjoy the location."

    I never tire of the view across the valley or the walks from the door. The restaurants, cafes and shops of Stow are just a 15 minute walk away along a lovely traffic free lane.

    GaryNov 2018

  • "Stonewell is a beautiful, spacious and extremely well-equipped holiday cottage."

    It is really well located, with beautiful views across open countryside, but only a short walk from Stow on the Wold. Everything you could need for a holiday stay had been considered. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend Stonewell to others looking for a place to explore the Cotswolds from. We hope to return ourselves.

    ClaireNov 2018

  • "Always just perfect."

    Don't need more characters - can't improve on excellence.

    PaulineOct 2018

  • "My stay at Stonewall was exactly what I was looking for, a comfortable warm cottage in the Cotswolds to rest and relax."

    The cottage and setting were perfect and my dog and I especially loved the quiet walks. Would definitely go back again.

    AngelaOct 2018

  • "Spotless accommodation right through and all the essentials (tea, coffee, biscuits and milk in the fridge too)."

    This is one of the best self-catering places we have ever been to. Location is a 10 minute walk from Stow or a few minutes in the car.

    LyndaOct 2018

  • "Loved everything about it."

    Quaint, but modern amenities. Wonderful view. Fire in fireplace in evening. Very comfortable. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

    SuiAug 2018

  • "We had a great time staying in Stonewell."

    The location was ideal for us with many great walks in the area including the short walk into Stow with its many excellent pubs and restaurants. The property was well equipped, great local information available and as a family of 4 having 2 bathrooms was ideal. The Bell in Stow served excellent food and the staff there were very friendly - highly recommended. We all had a great week and hope to return again in the future.

    LeeAug 2018

  • "The perfect location for our family holiday - close to the town and a great base for exploring the greater Cotswolds region."

    Stonewell cottage is a lovely two bedroom cottage which is finished to a high standard and is very well equipped. It is set in its own grounds which gives privacy and has its own outside patio area for BBQ's etc. It was cleaned to a very high standard for our arrival. A great holiday location.

    GrahamJul 2018

  • "Relaxing holiday in a very comfortable dog friendly cottage, set in a picturesque location within walking distance of Stow on the Wold."

    The cottage was very clean and furnished as a home from home. There were beautiful views from the cottage and several walks from the front door. I would highly recommend this cottage.

    SueJul 2018

  • "We stayed in Stonewell for a week."

    It's a great location. Stonewell is great for a family as its all one level with lots of room outside for children to play. Stonewell is very nicely decorated and wonderfully clean. We will be going back.

    NeilJul 2018

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Stonewell."

    We enjoyed the tranquil setting with the added bonus of horses close by. The barn was of a high standard and had some interesting features particularly the illuminated well in the lounge. We liked the decor and pictures and the en suite wet room was a bonus. Our dog enjoyed the local walks. I would highly recommend a stay here.
