Would definitely recommend staying here, we stopped for 3 nights at the end of February. Both Amanda and Ron made us feel welcome and at home and gave good tips and directions on places to go. Guest house is in a beautiful location, we had a lovely view from our bedroom and guest house was lovely and clean. I would... 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 stayed here with a group of friends before a wedding in the local area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The views are great and staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

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

We arrived at 19.00 on the Thursday and unfortunately this was an inconvenient time for the owner who "greeted" us by rushing us to write our name in a book, he then gave both couples our keys and pointed in the general direction of our rooms. This was the warm welcome I'd read about!!! When we went to our room... More

The guesthouse itself was really lovely - the room was cosy and well furnished, warm and quiet. the breakfast was also delicious. The location was about a 20mins uphill walk into Stow. The management were very disorganised though, and even said our room had been cancelled when we phoned in advance to confirm on the day we arrived. I needed... More

We stayed at Woodlands for one night, the room was clean and spacious. The owner made a perfect recommendation for dinner, The Halfway House at Kineton and it didn't disappoint. The breakfast was great, as a lover of the good old English breakfast I can recommend this one. If we are ever in the area again we would happily stay... More

Our hostess, Amanda was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for her. The rooms were delightful offering beautiful views. Amanda gave us great information on the best places to visit and eat in the area. We took her advice and were not disappointed. A truly memorable visit. We would definitely return here and will recommend this accomodation to... More
