We had a weekend away to the Porch house for our anniversary having never been there before and not knowing what to expect... I literally cannot fault it at all!! We stayed in room 9 which is one of their feature rooms. We had a spacious room with beautiful wooden beams and stand alone bath which was perfect for our... More

We booked The Porch House for a weekend with friends on a ‘deal’ with reduced room rates. We checked in at 12:00 & were prepared to go for a wander but the really helpful guy in the bar where you check in advised our rooms were ready – we were in the ‘add on’ bit, so very small room but... More

Loved The Porch House! A cosy one night weekend stay. Worth a visit even just for a drink - great selection. High quality food - enjoyed a celebratory birthday meal and delicious breakfast the next day. Really comfortable night's sleep. Fab atmosphere and great surroundings for example feature furniture - in our room a singer sewing machine table, exposed beams... More

Stopped over for 2 nights for our Honeymoon trip and really enjoyed it. Stow on the Wold was also the perfect village as a base. We loved the dogs and their owners stopping in for a drink in the evenings and the fireplaces kept everything cozy. Highly recommended, breakfast top notch as well .....order the tea and toast in bed,... More

This pub is full of charm and provides a good base for exploring and walking in the Cotswolds. The breakfast was good, hot items cooked to order and plenty of choice. Dinner also was excellent and the staff looked after us well. The 'standard' room was very small, as was the shower room - larger people would definitely have a... More

They claim to be the oldest pub in the region (and it wasn't named "The King's Arms"?) but it does serve up great, wholesome meals. A lot of "comfort food" on the menu which also featured a large selection of sea foods which we enjoyed (not fried). Cozy, old-world feel. I would recommend this to anyone in this area looking...

We stayed recently for two nights with our three month year old baby. From time of booking until checkout the staff were very friendly, in particular Laura. We went for a standard room. #7 was very spacious with lovely decor. Nice touch having an espresso machine. There was still enough room with the travel cot and a lovely view out... More

I stayed here for one night just after new year and very much enjoyed it. There is limited parking but I managed to get a space. The interior is very nicely decorated with antiques and lovely old books to create a really unique atmosphere. The snug was great to relax by the real log fire and enjoy a book or... More

My husband, myself, & our 2 adult children stayed here for, sadly, only 1 brief night on Boxing Day (see separate restaurant review). We found this inn to be superb, in every way except parking. This is the Cotswalds, so we understand we can't have everything! They did let us park in one of their few spaces reserved for checking... More
