Tranquil Beautifully furnished Relaxing Retreat

5 of 5
My friend and I met up for our biannual girly catch-up. It was perfect set up for us, we had a bedroom and bathroom each. The cottage was stylishly decorated and well equipped. Hidden away behind a Blue doorway, secluded from the Main Street it offered an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds. We both would recommend it and both of us are aiming to return at a later date.

A very pleasant, quiet place to stay

5 of 5
Top Lodge Cottage is a lovely, well-maintained property. Biny and Tony are very helpful and friendly - the delicious fruit cake waiting for us was a lovely surprise. The cottage is really comfortable and we would recommend anyone to stay there. Being at the end of a road (as far as vehicles are concerned) it was very peaceful.If we're down that way again we will look to see whether the cottage is available before looking anywhere else. Top Lodge Cottage is a short, pleasant walk from Stow, a pleasant village. It is close to several National Trust properties, two interesting arboretums and some other beautiful villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway. Thank you both for a lovely week's holiday.
