A lovely cottage with plenty of character
This a fabulous property in a great location. Walking into Stow is easy and all accessible via public footpaths. Some great quirky shops and wonderful pubs, you are literally spoilt for choice. We also loved the local pub which is about 3 minutes walk from the cottage and does the most amazing Sunday lunch.
The cottage is very well equipped and has everything you need. An separate toilet would be advantageous with a large group as there are 2 but both in the 2 bathrooms which if being used creates an issue.
All the bedrooms were lovely. The double bed in the room above the kitchen is very, very small though. A full sized double bed would be better even if it takes up more of the floor space available.
All in all we had a great weekend and made some wonderful memories. The owner was really helpful and I would definitely go back.
Thank you for your lovely review Sharron, we're pleased to hear that you had a great weekend and made some wonderful memories. We hope that you visit again soon!
