    “The cottage was really lovely and the location is fantastic.”

    One of the reasons I booked was because I had seen a lot of comments about how clean the cottage was. The towels and bedding were lovely and clean however some of the surface areas I didn’t think were very clean. The kettle was absolutely full of limescale, really badly in fact so we had to boil pans of water if we wanted a hot drink. The television only worked if you were using Netflix or one of the apps, normal television did not work. The double was was extremely uncomfortable, there ...

The television only worked if you were using Netflix or one of the apps, normal television did not work. The double was was extremely uncomfortable, there seemed to be an issue with the mattress in that there was a bump in the middle of it, so good nights sleep didn’t happen. We were left a bottle of wine and biscuits which was a really lovely touch, so thank you so much for that.

    - Emily, July 2022

    Thank you Emily for the feedback and I enjoyed chatting it through with you as its really important to us that everyone who visits the cottage has a lovely time. We hadn't realised there was a problem with the kettle and this has now been replaced so thank you for bringing it to our attention. As mentioned, both mattresses are actually brand new Vi Spring mattresses and cost £2,500. I will check them over for any bumps / faults and if so they will certainly be replaced. The TV is a new Samsung Smart TV and you're correct that the signals in Stow can be patchy, so I just wanted to make sure there was an internet option as well for everyone. Apologies though as I hadn't left out the instruction manual, but it's there now. I have also shared your comments with our housekeepers re some of the surface areas for as you say they have very high standards and pride in their work . Thank you again Emily for taking the time to provide your feedback and to chat, and so pleased you are looking to come back to the cottage again. Property Owner

The medieval history of the town is beautifully preserved, including many lovely old buildings around the market square, which also contains a medieval stone cross, the old town stocks and a number of alleyways for the passage of sheep being herded to market, known as 'turns'. Sitting on top of a hill, Stow is well known for its many antique shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as for the many lovely walks through the surrounding Cotswold countryside that are accessible directly from the town. The location is also ideal for exploring the wider region, including the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Built in the 18th century to the highest quality, with a character in keeping with the rest of the town, Spinners Cottage has been immaculately furnished in a warm, elegant style. The traditional character of the cottage includes wooden beams, exposed Cotswold stone and a beautiful wood burner, all of which has been complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV and a well presented kitchen. Spinners Cottage sleeps four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a pretty, walled courtyard garden at the front of the property, complete with a table and seating for four.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.

Note: The two other cottages in the row have a right of access through the garden, to reach their properties.

Note: We ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. One well behaved dog welcome.

Note: This is an old property with character features, including steep stairs and low beams, which is laid out over two floors, and could therefore pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility.

Note: The property’s courtyard garden is enclosed; however, the neighbouring properties have a right of access through this garden, which could result in the gate to the road or the gate to the neighbouring property not being closed properly, consequently, young children and pets should be supervised outside at all times.

Note: An initial basket of logs is provided for the woodburning stove between October and April; further log supplies can be purchased locally.
