“This cozy cottage and gorgeous garden was a dream come true.”

We traveled to the Cotswolds with our daughter and son-in-law in early December and were delighted with the hospitality and accommodations at the Park House Cottage. It was so conveniently located to wonderful restaurants (the Indian restaurant a few doors up the street was fabulous, as well as the many pubs nearby); the street parking was quite convenient; and cottage itself was just what we had hoped for. The kitchen was well equipped, the wood-burning stove was delightful on the cool winter evenings, and the beds and baths were modern, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Stow-on-the-Wold proved to be a great launching site for day trips to Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Stonehenge, and a few of the nearby villages. On days or evenings we stayed closer to home, it's a lovely, friendly town with great pubs, shops, and one of the nicest antiquarian bookdealers I've met anywhere.

All four of us would recommend a stay with Nick and Jenny. They were helpful and took pains to see that the cottage had everything we needed from start to finish.

Liked best: The slanted ceilings, arched doorways, wood-burning stove, and the view of the garden.
Liked least: We were grateful that there was an outside stairway to the second floor for carrying luggage because the interior spiral staircase was a bit intimidating at first.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

people found this review helpful

I am a fussy person and I tend not to just stay anywhere. I researched the Cotswolds and a holiday rental for about 6months! I stumbled across Park House Cottage and was not disappointed. I have decided to write this review as I know how helpful they can be.
The cottage is a brilliant setup for a self catering holiday rental. Its also a great location. Private and quiet, but right on the high street and by the town square.
Nick & Jenny were very welcoming and helpful. They were there if we needed them but never interfered during our stay. They think of all the little things to settle a guest & make it feel like 'home' - we had a welcome food pack, even had a Christmas tree. Great furnishings throughout and a fantastic fire which I had alight constantly - even a huge basket of logs were provided for us.
I have read the other reviews that moan about the spiral staircase - this is a great quirky feature. If you want practical then go stay in a hotel. The staircase adds a bit of character to the cottage. I managed to carry my 18month old son up the stairs easy enough. I personally loved it, especially after a bottle (or two) of wine!
Stow is a short drive to other market towns and villages. I honestly don't see any reason why you would want to stay anywhere else. Well done Nick & Jenny keep up the good work!

“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

stayed for a week in mid June. Stow on the Wold is lovely and the cottage and gardens are a little bit of heaven that is hidden from the street, beautiful and quiet but in the centre of Stow for restaurants and shops. Our friends where a little older than us but had no trouble getting up and down the spiral staircase.

“Beautiful Cottage in the middle of Stow”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent a week at the cottage and LOVED it! The cottage is exactly as portrayed and Nick and Jenny have added so many nice touches. It feels very homely and has everything you could need. The kitchen / dining area open out to a lovely private patio and garden, it was so nice to sit out in the evening sipping wine and listening to the birds singing. The cottage is set back from the street and is accessed via a pretty courtyard. You can't hear the traffic, it is a very relaxing little haven. The location could not be better, walking distance to all that Stow has to offer, quaint little coffee shops, restaurants, well-established pubs, a wonderful old church, and so on. Nick and Jenny live next door and were about if we needed anything; they recommended some great places to eat.
Stow-on-the-Wold is a fabulous little town in the heart of the Cotswolds, so many gorgeous places nearby to visit. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage and we look forward to visiting again next year!

“Cozy Hideaway in a Perfect Location”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Our family of four stayed in Nick and Jenny's comfortable cottage for 3 nights and it was the highlight of our 10 day vacation. I loved that we were right in the heart of Stow on the Wold (which we fell in love with) but it was off the main street and had beautiful gardens around it. We loved having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, too. Jenny and Nick equip the house with everything you need (including eggs/bread for the first morning!) and we found it to be the perfect home-base for exploring the Cotswolds. We even walked about 1.5 miles to the Fox Inn which was a beautiful walk and great food! Stow has a little bit of everything and close to so much... Bourton on the Water, Lower Slaughter and much more. Our family and friends are all dying to come visit Stow and stay in this wonderful cottage!
