This was a perfect property for a friends 40th birthday. The kitchen/dining room was used the most for socialising, but all the rooms were lovely and spacious, and to have 3 bathrooms was excellent, all with great showers. We made good use of the table tennis room as well.
It only took 5 minutes to walk to the main square, and we did a walk to Lower and Upper Slaughter, which was beautiful. Also a great location to visit surrounding towns and villages, of which Bourton-on-the-Water was our favourite.

“Location very good and good facilities at property”

Birch House had all we needed for a birthday celebration weekend. Children loved the different toys and location was excellent for a short stroll into town.
Would recommend this property.

“Met all our needs”

Birch House was set up to meet all our needs. The house was clean and stocked with basic needs. Bedrooms were comfortable and having three bathrooms upstairs, was outstanding.

“Perfect in every way”

We have just returned from a fantastic stay here. Eight adults and one baby and it was ideal. The house had everything you could wish for, and lots of nice extra touches too. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and the dining room table was large enough for all the family to enjoy big meals around.

I was also very impressed with the baby items - the cot and highchairs were of a very good quality and there were even some lovely toys provided too.

I'm always fussy about showers and these were all great. Admittedly we had the master bedroom (with en suite) but everyone else agreed the other showers were great too. And we never ran out of hot water.

Location is perfect, a 3 minute walk from Stow centre with its numerous village pubs, quaint shops and pretty tea rooms.

Booking was all lovely and smooth and the owner was very helpful. Great value too, especially considering the size. Would definitely stay again.

“Amazing house & Amazing location!”

We stayed at Birch House as a group of friends to celebrate a 40th birthday & it was perfect. The spacious layout of the house meant everyone had their own space, even those sharing rooms! 3 bathrooms & 4 toilets was ideal & the bathrooms have been finished off beautifully. The kitchen / dining area was gorgeous & we spent most our time there & shared a great Sunday meal together at the dinner table - perfect for an occasion like this with a big group. The table tennis table was great fun!

Ahead of our trip I'd contacted Samantha for some advice on restaurants & was recommended many, a couple of which we tried & they were lovely. The location was perfect as the area itself was quiet, however a 5 min walk away was the town so we went to the pubs during the evening & enjoyed the shops & tea rooms during the day.

When we arrived at the house I was thrilled to see how well equipped the kitchen was - it literally had everything we needed & there was even a lovely "welcome" basket for us & fresh milk in the fridge!

I would absolutely return to this property & would highly recommend it for those wanting luxurious self-catering accommodation with plenty of space & a great location.
