“Very welcoming”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

A group of 6, we received a warm welcome and had a very comfortable stay at the Cowley House. Breakfast was superb and the location was very convenient for our walking trips and for eating and drinking in Broadway. Parking for our 4 cars was sorted out without a fuss which was a welcome bonus. Highly recommended and we would go back.

Stayed July 2012, traveled with friends

We arrived to a friendly welcome from Peter the owner, with coffee in the lounge after showing us to our room. We stayed in the lovely Daresbury room with a marvellous 4 poster bed though the bathroom was bit small but cant be helped. Its in an ideal location and their guest info book was very informative and a nice personal touch was that Peter & Joan had given their own critique of the restaurants in the village. The breakfast was the best tasting fried breakfast I have ever had, all with local ingredients. This is a lovely, homely B&B and an ideal place for exploring the cotswolds. We definitely recommend staying here and would book here again.

The Cowly House is a really lovely place to stay. We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are clean, fresh and spacious. The breakfast is delicious and with many options. There is adequate parking for all cars.
Most of all the owners and staff are truly a delight. Very friendly, very helpful and really good fun.
Lady Di, especially. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

Excellent position in Broadway with that rare facility - a car park in a tourist mecca. Our room had its own private garden. Breakfast fare good - look out for the off-hand humour of Di, the doyen of the breakfast room

Cowley house is idealy situated in the village a pub opposite (the crown and trumpet) and a lovely restaurant ( a quick walk from the b&b) the swan excellent food and lovely friendly staff.

We really loved our stay.

Thank you to all for a lovely few days away.

Marvellous B & B with excellent accommodation and a super choice for breakfast. Joan and Peter most welcoming and very helpful. Ideally placed right in the centre of Broadway and with a wonderful ambience. The service provided by young Di (known to all and sundry as Lady Di) added to the atmosphere and pleasure, especially at breakfast. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Chawton is a good choice if available as it has its own small garden available as well.

Very beautiful, clean, renovated, comfortable rooms, lovely house, very good breakfast. And as equally important for a BB, very warm hospitality by owners. Great location as it is walking distance to restaurants, pubs etc in Broadway. Definately we would go back.
