“Wonderful Cotswolds Cottage !”
Reviewed July 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We've been to Crooked Beams two or three times now and would definitely return. A quintessential Cotswolds cottage with an open log fire and plenty of room; it also has a lovely garden with a southerly aspect, which is accessed from a conservatory off the kitchen. We visited over the Christmas break during a cold snap, but the cottage was lovely and warm and cosy. An added bonus was the wonderful garage with an electric door, which kept the car frost-free for our outings the following morning.

Set in the lovely quiet hamlet of Maugersbury, it's only a short stroll into Stow on the Wold where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants. Plenty of walks on the doorstep also, but central for exploring the rest of the Cotswolds. Check out the wonderful Daylesford farm shop at nearby Kingham.

All you need for a 'chilled' visit to the Cotswolds, and Mary is a wonderful host who will definitely want you to enjoy your stay. We are more than happy to recommend this lovely cottage.

Very nice clean cottage in a quiet village 1/2 mile from Stow. The garden and sun room were very relaxing after a day of touring.

“Perfect ...but”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage is lovely every convenience very peaceful and quiet and central to most attractions it would have been a 5star but for the seating in the lounge which is not really suitable for larger people

Thank you for the kind review. Perhaps for a very large person you found the full size two seater sofa a little small if you are used to a three seater, but a three seater might look too large in a cottage.

“Lovely week in a charming cottage”
Reviewed May 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have had a wonderful week in Cotswolds. The cottage was very charming and and well equipped. The conservatory was a very nice place to sit and relax and have a meal. Nice with a little library which also contained a lot of information about the area and walking paths. Location was fantastic, calm and peaceful with a short walk to Stow with nice restaurants and pubs.

“Cozy cottage in a wonderful location”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our Easter break. The cottage worked well for four adults (two couples). We particularly loved the fireplace and the garden, with views of the hillside from the rear bedroom and bathroom. An added bonus was how peaceful the village of Maugersbury was, with enjoyable walks directly from the property. Stow on the Wold is an easy 10 minute wander up the road, where you can find boutiques, delis and restaurants. We would certainly recommend the property and its owners, who were incredibly helpful. Thank you.

“Charming cottage with modern facilities”
Reviewed March 26, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is a beautiful period cottage which takes you back into history but has the advantage of modern facilities including internet. Our intention was to "recharge batteries" after a recent bereavement. A wonderful view of the Cotswolds from the windows certainly helped to do that. Stow is only a short distance away and has interesting shops to browse. We especially liked Huffkins for a coffee/snack and had a lovely evening meal at the Coach House. A little further on is one of my favourite places - Bourton on the Water with its Bird World, fascinating shops and tea houses.

“Fab cottage in the most beautiful little village”
Reviewed November 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had such a lovely time in the lovely cottage. Everything you could possible wish for was in the cottage.

The owner of the cottage was superb, always available to answer questions before, during and after.

It really was only 8 minutes walk from Stow-on-the-Wold, so a perfect quite location but close enough to go out and have some fun without having to take the car.

We will be back for sure.

Liked best: How the owner was so lovely and easy to deal with.
Liked least: Internet drops out all the time, so if working, not easy - but NOT their fault. Superfast Fibre broadband is coming to the Cotswolds soon!
