The moment we arrived at The Porch House the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. We were showed to our Feature room (Room 9) which was spotless and amazingly light, complete with its own roll top bath in the bedroom! (don't worry there was a shower in the large ensuite bathroom). The manager Alex and all... More

This was a last minute decision to to have a night away and managed a late rooms booking the The Porch House. After reading the other reviews we decided to spend a few pounds more for a bigger room, and we weren't disappointed. Our room was lovely very clean and comfortable bed. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed here for a night in Room 5, and it was so nice! The room was on the smaller night, but for one night (with less luggage) it was perfect. There were no wardrobes but a chest of drawers was instead provided and that served the purpose. The entrie place has a cosy English cottage feel to it, with a... More

We stayed here for two nights 4/5 May 2015 and although the food was of excellent quality the room left a bit to be desired, we stayed in a double room (room 11) for the duration of our stay and the room was just about big enough for the two of us. The bed was again good quality even if... More

Lovely sunny Bank Holiday Monday, and you don't get many of those. We decided to get the motorbike out and head off to the Cotswolds. We reached Stow around lunch time, and after a saunter round the place - its lovely - we decided to find somewhere for lunch. As the sun was out we wanted to sit outside. The... More

The place is beautiful, setting quintessentially British, the food is lovely but the restaurant supervisor gave us such grief...for no reason at all. He was clearly rude to his staff and guests of the B&B. Such a shame, as we are newly local and wanted to spend a lot more time here than we now will. We tried to order... More

Having stayed in some excellent hotels & some not so, I rate this as just the ultimate in everything one could wish for. From entering the foyer & receiving a warm welcome, things just improved with each step. Our room was exquisite, & every attention given to detail. Sumptuosly comfortable bed. We had no intention of staying to dinner, intending... More

We have just had a very comfortable one night stay at The Porch House. All the staff and James are very welcoming and make sure we have everything we need. My husband had booked a superior room. Room no1 was very comfortable indeed and the mezzanine floor bathroom unusual. We had tea, warm toast and a paper delivered to our... More

Just back from a lovely stay at the Porch House. Beautiful building in wonderful surroundings. Room stunning (superior) as was the food. Breakfasts great with plenty of selection. James and Staff make it their business to make sure you are well looked after and all very friendly. Missed having a dressing gown in the room - wrongly assumed these would... More
