I found this pub in a Telegraph Survey about the best pubs in the Cotswolds and thankfully it lived up to it's reputation. We went to celebrate my birthday and so were a relatively large party. I was recommended to book The Parlour as it also came with it's very own snug so was brilliant for the children and babies.... More

We decided to choose this inn as per the title, thinking of the history. It is full of quirky little areas to sit and relax and enjoy either meals from the restaraunts or bar meals. Their ham sandwiches coming with chips were so lovely my wife had them two nights on the trot! Talking of food all their breakfast ingredients... More

My wife and I recommend the Porch House set in Beautiful Stow on the Wold Cotswold. You won't be disappointed if you like old world stone floors old beams and character throughout. We would imagine in the winter months with all the wood burners and open fires it to be nice and cosy. The food service and staff were all... More

we just finished 5 delightful days with James and his team at The Porch House. Nothing but great things to stay. We were in room 1 and the couple with us stayed in room 9. Both "feature" rooms and worth the small extra cost. Our room was at the back of this small, recently refurbished inn. Very quiet. Bathroom was... More

Stayed her in August for a weekend getaway with my niece. We intended to use it as a base then head out elsewhere for the evening but it was so perfect, we stayed all night. On arrival, The Porch House is really cute with wooden floors and exposed beams. The bedrooms was well laid out and what has to be... More

Myself and my partner got engaged here on 9th November 2013 and it was the perfect location for this magical moment to happen. We love Stow anyway but this hotel cemented our love for it. The hotel was beautiful, we had a gorgeous room which was so quaint and the bed was incredibly comfy! Downstairs, the bar was fantastic full... More

Me and my new wife (!!) spent 3 really relaxing nights at The Porch House after our wedding. It was just what we needed. Massive comfy bed, huge bathroom with a really nice bath and shower, Nespresso machine in the room, great staff, room service breakfast at no extra cost, great food, superb selection of beers and whiskies, and a...

I adore this place. It has some merit to its claim of being the oldest inn in England, but even if it's not quite THE oldest, it's wonderfully quaint. The town is utterly charming with antique shops galore, but the inn itself is just as delightful. Exposed rustic beams and stone lend a great vibe to the place, and the... More

Just returned from this place and cannot recommend enough. The inn oozes character and quality. We stayed in room 6 and it was beautiful. The attention to detail, cleanliness and luxury was apparent in every area....a real treat!

We stayed at the Porch House as part of a wedding party last weekend and had a fantastic time. Accommodation was quirky as befits the style of the building. Meal for family and friends and attention to detail by staff was first class so thanks for a great stay and we hope to be back.
