We spent a hugely enjoyable weekend at this picture-postcard cottage and our very positive first impressions were boosted by a lovely welcome pack of essentials and treats. The house is pretty from the outside as well as cosy and snug inside, with a delightful garden that we breakfasted in and a large comfy double bed upstairs. The village pub does excellent food and there is a good choice of smart restaurants in Stow. Locally there are lovely walks and there is loads to see and do within ten minutes drive. Our only wish is that we had booked a longer stay!
