“Location fantastic & I've never stayed in such a well equipped house!”

Please pass on our sincere thanks to the owner; we all loved the cottage and found the location to be perfect. I've never stayed in such a well equipped house! It literally has everything :) The wine and cake was also a very sweet welcome...

The owner kindly allowed us a late check out on Monday too, which was very nice of her. Other than the leaking boiler, we really couldn't fault the cottage... I'll definitely be recommending it to friends and family! :)

“Wonderful cosy cottage for a relaxing country break”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We had a great time in Steps Cottage as a group of girls looking for a relaxing weekend in the countryside. The house was lovely - very homely and well equipped, with fanstastic little features like the wood burner and smart Tv, and a delicious cake on arrival. It is perfectly located near to the town centre and Tesco, whilst being easy to find with off road parking too. I also received a very comprehensive information package prior to arrival so knew exactly what to expect. The service we received when we had a technical issue with the doorknob in the living room was also prompt and helpful. I know that several friends have already booked cottages with your company after their experiences in the cottage and from our recommendations. Thank you so much for providing such a fantastic service.

“Cosy Christmas in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 28 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Steps cottage. It was well equipped and in a great location, just a short walk into the village and also to the large Tesco on the outskirts of town. Our stay was for Christmas week and the owner had put up a Christmas tree and other decorations to make it very festive for our stay. The welcome cake and champagne were also lovely touches. It was heated well enough that we did not need to use the wood burning heater at all and was large enough for a family of 5 ( including 3 teenagers) to watch tv and sleep comfortably. I would highly recommend Steps cottage as a great place to stay to discover Stow on the Wold and the rest of the Cotswolds, especially in winter.

“Wondeful place to explore the Cotswolds from”
Reviewed 28 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Steps Cottage. The Cottage itself was beautiful and a great base from which to explore the surrounding villages. I look forward to hopefully coming back soon.
