“Ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds”

Oak House is a wonderful, modern cottage with all the amenities you could ask for. Everything is provided, from the practical (shampoos, soaps, coffee/tea, etc) to the personal (a welcome card from the owners, flowers, and cake).

We traveled with a six year-old, and the house offered plenty to keep him busy: a large garden in the back to play football, badminton, or croquet (sets provided) and inside a whole collection of books, toys, DVDs, and Playstation games. The garden is wonderful - a perfect, quiet spot to enjoy views over the countryside. The horses in the field behind the house made for wonderful neighbours.

Speaking of neighbours, the owners live right next door and are very welcoming and friendly, and pleased to help with any information about the area or attractions to visit.

Wonderful hosts, wonderful house, wonderful location! Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for your complimentary review. It is good to see children making the most of the outdoor space. Our central position makes it easy to explore a wide area and we are glad that you seemed to find plenty to do in the two weeks you were with us. We would love to see you again on your next visit to the UK. Robert & Cheryl

“Lovely cottage”

This cottage really stood up to the description. Good location, very convenient for Stow on the Wold and very peaceful.
It was very clean with all the extras . Also what was really good was that you didn't have to worry about washing up liquid/kitchen towel clingilm/shanpoo/showergel etc as it was all provided.
I think this illustrates the generosity of the owners - who were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive, would definitely book this one again.

“Perfect break”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Very well appointed, lovely touches, spotlessly clean, central location PLUS a beautiful view from all rooms and back garden - all we could ask for from a holiday home. We spent a very peaceful week here, touring, walking and eating! With very professional information packs, we can highly recommend this property.

“A wonderful stay in a perfect location”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage was tastefully decorated and everything there was made to make us feel comfortable. From the cleanliness to the coziness and the amazing view from the french windows, we were delighted. Cheryl and Robert were the most perfect hosts, helpful and welcoming.
The cottage is also ideally located to visit the Cotswolds as most of the places to visit are less than 30 mins drive away. The surrounding countryside is stunning and the little villages are lovely and picturesque.

We had a wonderful family time and would be very happy to stay again at Oak House. Thank you!

“Home from home with a Cotswolds twist”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Oak House and one supposes that speaks for itself. Ideally located in the heart of the Cotswolds close to the beautiful villages of Stow-on-the- Wold, Lower and Upper Slaughter and Bourton –on-the-Water, the cottage provides an idyllic base for the discerning Cotswold tourist. The cottage is modern but sensitively furnished, presenting guests with a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. In addition, it contains all mod cons such as; large LCD TV, Playstation, CD system (with iPod dock and range of CDs) and an array of board games and books for the more sedentary guest shall we say. It also has a very spacious garden at rear which our three year old put to much use (his Frisbee developed a habit of flying into the neighbours garden). The owners Robert & Cheryl have everything covered really and are very helpful with any queries or requests. They even loaned us some butter on arrival after a long trip from the west of Ireland. Some places of interest which we visited are; Sudely Castle, Hidcote, Cotswold Farm Park, Birdland and Heritage Motor Museum (Gaydon). If you’re thinking of visiting the Cotswolds a perfect place to start.
