Spent 2 nights at Woodlands s a base for Longborough Festival Opera. Only a 5 minute journey to Stow and Longborough. Woodlands is extremely convenient and very welcoming. Amanda couldn't have been more accommodating. Free wifi. Comfortable room, great views over rolling countryside, good choice of breakfast. Plenty of car parking - ideal centre for Cotswolds. I'll be back...

Ideally situated close to Stow, and ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds. The room was on the small side but well appointed with a comfortable bed. The views from the window were out of this world.Free WiFi was fine and little 'extras' were plentiful. The hosts are friendly and most helpful, offering advice on local attractions and dining...

Amanda, was extremely helpful and helped plan our daily itinerary on our first visit to this part of the Cotswolds. Good breakfasts to set us up for the day and a great base for exploring this beautiful area. Only minor criticism shower pressure poor and Amanda you really need some curtain linings on those curtains in the room to stop... More

my wife and a group of friends stayed here as we were attending a wedding nearby. The house was beautiful but that is where the good stuff ends. We were greeted at the front door by the most obnoxious man who basically stated "I don't have anything to do with this, chucked 5 sets of keys on the side and... More

We stayed in Woodlands Guesthouse for three nights in September. The owners, Ron and Amanda, were most welcoming and professional despite the circumstances. The hike to the Stow (20-25mins) is beautiful: traditional Cotswolds fences, pastures and stunning views. We stayed in the twin room on the ground floor. The room was very spacious for the two of us. The house... More

We stayed at the Woodlands Guesthouse for one night. The guesthouse is about a 25-minute walk from the Stow. As there are no real footpaths leading from the Stow to Upper Swell, it's a bit of a hike, but on a nice and sunny day it was actually rather enjoyable and all other little villages nearby were easily accessible from...

We booked two nights at this guesthouse for the beginning of July. We were very impressed when we pulled up outside; stunning views, beautiful building, just lovely. We knocked on the door (we realised later that this was the side door) and got told rather bluntly to go around to the front door, no hello or welcome at all! The... More
