Excellent location for walks with the dog and for visiting Lechlade, Burford, Bourton on the Water etc. I agree with previous reviews that he kitchen could do with more crockery etc . There weren't the finishing touches we that we have had in other cottages e.g. a welcome pack with information about the cottage - which would have been very useful when we had no hot water. However, Rachel was very friendly and we would recommend staying here.

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.
