My husband chose this guest house for a belated wedding anniversary present. It is a quaint little place, rooms are comfortable with a cottagey feel, not for you if you want modern and contemporary. Amanda was lovely, we only stayed for one night, the breakfast was fab, although had to sit at table with four other guests who we didn't... More

This lovely guest house is 1 mile from Stow. It is excellent as a quiet and beautiful place to stay in the Cotswolds. Hostess Amanda does a terrific job, now working solo. One needs a car to get around in this area, and driving on rural roads is not easy, but being out in the country is well worthwhile. I... More

The house itself was good. The service was poor. The host rude especially the man. The lady was o.k. Not very helpful they virtually threw people out of the door to go and walk the dogs before it gets too hot. Thank you, not planning to go there again. Change your attitude towards your customer. The breakfast was good.

We were a party of 4, with two rooms and stayed for 5 nights to explore the area, and the location of Woodlands was perfect, with all attractions within a beautiful short drive. A field of sheep across the road a Vixen and her cubs a short distance away English Countryside at it's best. Rob and Amanda are only too... More

Lovely clean and bright room with really large en suite. Very comfortable bed. Tea, coffee and biscuits left each day. Breakfast was really good and freshly cooked. Only downside is that it's served 8-9 which means no lie in on Sunday! Owners were very friendly and helpful. Good location for exploring the area.

We visited this property in mid March as a base fore the Cheltenham Festival .We found the location perfect , as it is only a 15 minute drive to the races ,and only a 5 minute drive to Stow with all the local shops and pubs. We echo all the past comments on room cleanliness ,friendly owner, nice breakfasts etc... More

We came here with another couple to celebrate his 60th birthday. This guest house is in the perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds. Only a short drive to Stow on the Wold where there is no shortage of excellent places to eat and drink. Amanda and Rob were great hosts and very helpful when it came to advising places to... More

Rob gave us a lovely welcome, we had a great room, meals lovely and the place is spotless and idyllic. On the downside, being treated a little like a schoolboy for not parking perfectly after a 4 hour drive, plus my wife spoken to as if we had not returned a borrowed torch and then me being abruptly told not...

In response to the above comments may I politely reply to the guests comments: The drive is a gravel drive and therefore it would prove impossible to mark out in stones.... When we offer to lend a torch to our guests...we do so in order that they have a some form of illumination to keep them safe...( it is the... More

Woodland Guesthouse is a most beautiful place to spend a relaxing time. Well located, close to many interesting tourist spots, a short drive to eateries but far enough away to be able to experience peace, quiet and tranquility. Amanda and Rob were great hosts, friendly, informative and eager to share a good yarn. Outstanding country location with our room overlooking... More
