Wren House Bed & Breakfast

Traveller (16)

Room & Suite (10)


Wren House Bed and Breakfast is a charming 15th-century house in the small and peaceful hamlet of Donnington barely two miles from Stow-on-the-Wold. There are three double bedrooms and three dedicated bathrooms, one en suite, each with large and very comfortable (everyone says so!) kingsize beds and feather duvets. This is the private home of Mrs. Kiloran McGrigor and her two yellow Labradors opened up to staying guests. It has a beautiful south-facing garden, and all rooms overlook it, in which guests are invited to sit and, if fine, breakfast is served al fresco. Breakfasts are sumptuous affairs - lots of fruit, cereals, juice and yoghurt and full cooked breakfast if guests wish. Conversation round one table can be entertaining and stimulating. Next to Wren House is a self-catering cottage for two under the same ownership. Guests at the cottage can enjoy all day access and their own secluded garden so this works best for longer stays.

My daughter, two grandchildren (ages 17 and 12) would be honored to stay in your lovely B&B, June 22, 23 and 24, 2018. We will need two bedrooms, one with twin beds for my niece and I and one for my daughter and her children. Could you provide a roll away bed for the extra

We have just spent a week in "The Granary", a self-catering cottage attached to Wren House. For the entire period we were trusted by the owner to use it while she was away on her own holidays. Bearing this in mind we have to say that we wanted for nothing as the property is

Thank you for this lovely review. So glad you liked it all and found the beds so comfy too. Yes, it has been re-decorated and a brand new front door too! Allow me to return the compliment - you left the place immaculately. Thank you. I am sorry we didn't meet, but perhaps on another occasion ... I shall look forward to welcoming you back.

We had a great four days staying with the owner and exploring the area. Her home and gardens are a delight for all the senses. She was very helpful with recommendations for pubs and went beyond the call of duty with helping us with reservations. The only problem is there is so

We had reserved a room in the main dwelling but due to unforseen circumstances we were upgraded to the Granary for a two night stay. It is a gorgeous barn, with beautifull gardens and tastefully decorated with everything you could possibility need. Kiloran is a interesting and

I am begrudgingly writing this review, as I would love to keep this gem a secret, in order to keep this to myself. We were welcomed by Kiloran, then left to our own devices for our 5 night stay in Granary Cottage over Christmas 2016. The house is well presented with - private

Thank you Tim and Ruth. Sadly, one dog, Gigha, did die. Agony as you kindly acknowledged. I am so glad your stay was as good as you describe. Please do come back.
