“Idylic Cotswold Cottage”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

If you're looking for a picture perfect Cotswold cottage in the prettiest town then look no more. Myself and our friends booked Bag End as a last weekend away before school started. We couldn't have chose a more beautiful cottage. Bag End is crammed with period features, cost fires and the comfiest beds I have ever slept in in a rented property! The house itself is very stylish with two bedrooms (one en-suite) and a bathroom upstairs and a lounge (with comfy sofas and sleep inducing armchairs!), fully equipped kitchen and conservatory downstairs. I was quite surprised to find it allows dogs to stay. Most properties I have taken mine to are never this luxurious! If there had been dogs here before I certainly couldn't tell, apart from the cute water bowls left for them to use. Outside is like a postcard. Outdoor seating and a large table for dining are surrounded by flowers, fruit trees and and beautiful gazebo (where the children in our party spent hours playing with the amazing dolls house!) The secondary accommodation is fabulous too. A double height ceiling with a spiral staircase leading up to another comfy double bed and en-suite bathroom and a lounge with sofa bed and another fully equipped kitchen downstairs.
The cottage is situated in Stow-on-the-Wold. A beautiful village packed with high end shops and the more traditional Cotswold offerings. There is also numerous pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, highly recommend The Old Butchers opposite the cottage.
I would definitely recommend Bag End to friends and family and we will be returning!

“Great location for a family Xmas get together”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We spent a pleasant week in Stow over Xmas 2016 with parents from Iceland and Yorkshire respectively. The property was cosy with warming fires and deceptively spacious, particularly with the additional annexe meaning people could maintain their own space without constantly being on top of each other. One set of inlaws had some concerns over cleanliness in the upstairs bathroom but only flagged this to us after we'd left.

Management Response

Character Cottages, as a marketing agency, does not look after or maintain any cottages. The following is written by the owner of Bag End: "Thank you for your feedback regarding our lovely cottage, we can only apologise if one of your relations found something not up to scratch at the property. We only took over in December and suffice to say we closed the cottage for a weeks in January to give us time to do a complete redecoration and deep clean. We do hope you will come back to see what we have done, everyone has loved Bag End this year with lots of repeat bookings! Hope to see you soon."

“Fabulous Bag End”
Reviewed 6 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have just returned from a weekend stay at Bag End Cottage at Stow on the Wold,what a fantastic place to stay,the decor and furnishings where something you would only see in a magazine,by far the best place we have ever stayed in, the small cottage at the end of the garden equally as nice with a stunning spiral staircase and furniture and decor you would normally only see in a show home,
The cottage in a fantastic location with numerous pubs and restaurants only a short walk away, a credit to the owners and certainly well worth the money we paid.
I would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay in the Cotswolds.

“Fairytale Home In Fairytale Village”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This cottage was fantastic! There were two couples with tons of space and well worth the rate. You step into this beautiful old cottage from the main street in Stow on the Wold into a fantasy. The main house is cozy with a living room that has comfortable chairs and flows toward the back into a dining area. The kitchen area is on the small side, but is truly beautiful decorated almost in a Spanish style and has everything you could possibly need for an extended stay.

Going upstairs from the living room is the 2nd floor with a very large bedroom and enormous bathroom with a gorgeous sauna tub. There is also a very sweet bedroom/bath on the 3rd floor that we did not use.

Going back out through the dining area is a sun room - too many children's things - would have liked a more adult area - but still nice. Through the door of the sun room out to the garden, you are greeted by a lush, colorful (yes, even in October!) garden with earth-tone flagstones and an elevated seating area. At the back of the garden is the cottage, which was a great size for a couple and really fun.

The entire property, in and out, is so clean, inviting, lovely and peaceful. Plenty of great restaurants and shops nearby. The town is quintessential Cotswolds.
