Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswolds, England
Tucked away at the end of a no through road on the edge of the village of Lower Swell, Oak House is in a peaceful setting overlooking open countryside. The large garden is a tranquil place to contemplate the surrounding landscape, whilst maybe catching a glimpse of a woodpecker or nuthatch on the birdfeeders. The only disturbance to a good night's sleep are likely to be owls hooting or a barking fox. Oak House is a detached cottage with 1 double and 1 twin room. All living rooms are private and overlook the garden and open fields beyond. The sitting room has oak flooring and furniture throughout and there are two comfortable leather sofas to curl up on in front of the wood burner. French window open onto a large private patio area. The room is equipped with plasma TV with freesat (some HD channels), playstation/dvd player, Wi-... Read more

Lower Swell is an excellent base for touring the Cotswolds. The house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with beautiful views over rolling countryside. The garden is large with the patio positioned to catch the afternoon and evening sun. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed. The owners, living next door, were handily placed if we needed...

We recently stayed in Kilderkin Cottage in Langton Matravers for a five-day holiday - a pretty Purbeck stone house tucked in a quiet lane in an equally attractive, quiet village located close to the many local Dorset amenities. The accommodation was faultless and furnished impeccably by the owners. In each of the rooms attention had been paid to comfort as...
