Why Michael Curtis chose Swell
Leys View Cottage is located in the gorgeous, quaint village of Lower Swell with its highy regarded pub, the Golden Ball. Offering a village location but only a mile away from the thriving town of Stow on the Wold. The property underwent a major renovation in 2016 that included a new bathroom, new shower room, the installation of a traditional stone patio and was fully decorated throughout so whilst the property has all the character one would expect of a house dating back hundreds of years it also offers guests all of the modern day comforts that they have come to expect.

great house for a group of people,
Located nicely near Stow -- 20 minute walk -- with lots of walking opportunities in glorious countryside. Also near train at Moreton-in-Marsh get folks or depart.
Property was fine, well appointed kitchen. Good weather allowed use of nice garden yard. Bathrooms fine and clean. Single beds a bit hard (extra extra firm :) but got used to them. Would recommend.
Only issue was with the key box, which would not open because of key lodging in it in such as way as to stifle the latch after entering the correct keycode. Property needs a higher grade keybox. We were able to call the housekeeper, who came quickly with a second set of keys.
Very nice cottage for a break,lovely location near to larger places to visit ,beware local pub no food Monday or Tuesday, nice range of local beers.
Would visit Leys View again and recommend it for a relaxing visit.
Great for a short break away
Everything we needed for a lovely relaxed few days away. Beautful and quiet location. High quality spec and furnishings in the house. The owner was helpful throughout and even left a few items of food and drink for us on arrival. Thank you.
An enjoyable 5 days in the Cotswolds. A good base to explore more.
The property was comfortable and reasonably well equipped for our needs, a hair dryer would have been welcomed
The welcome pack was generous and appreciated.
The road could have been an issue with young children as the traffic was fast mo ving
Overall a pleasant experience and would recommend the property.
Fantastic family friendly cottage...
We had a fantastic stay at the beautiful cottage in a perfect location. As a group of 4 adults and 3 children there was plenty of room and clearly the owner had put themselves in a position of being a visitor, everything needed was there. Great location to explore the area and an exceptionally peaceful position. The pub 100m up the road had just changed hands but was very welcoming and we ate there on two nights - even Adam Henson dropped in for a drink! We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is certainly an excellent one. Highly recommended. 5*
Wonderful Countryside Retreat
The cottage had everything you could ask for with old world charm and modern amenities following a remodel of kitchen and bath that made you feel like you were in a brand new house yet also retaining the centuries old feel that you want when staying in the Cotswolds. Location was amazing just about one hour drive from Stonehenge, Oxford, And Bath. Our family is asking when we are going back. Owner is very attentive and house was equipped with all you needed and welcome goodies with local flavor waiting for your visit.
