Lilac cottage is lovely and in a wonderful location convenient to all the Cotswold villages. The owner's attention to detail is so helpful from the directions to the cottage to instructions on how to operate all the appliances, etc. and attractions, restaurants and other helpful hints. We would definitely recommend lilac cottage!

“Beautiful cottage fantastic location”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

Great little cottage in a fabulous location. Only 5 minute walk (if that) to bus stop and start of shops / pubs / food places, with the chip shop, Chinese and I think and Indian coming first. under 10 minutes to the Coop. Great garden, sadly we didn't have the weather for spending the evening outdoors but would be great in the summer. House was great for three of us, bedrooms were lovely and cosy, plenty of space in the living room. Even a box full of games (board games and little games for smaller children) and some reading material. Kitchen small but contained everything you would need (including a washing machine) and a great big fridge / freezer if you coming well stocked up. Was really handing being so close to town and only 10 minutes from Bourton and not much further to the cotswold farm centre, great location to base yourself. We went in April when although sunny was rather cold - heating was already set-up and the house was lovely and cosy.

“Everything immaculate”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We spent a week at this lovely cottage. The owners have taken care to provide everything you could need and it is all in immaculate order. I would guess that they have been doing this for a while, it was all so professional. Welcome bottle of wine was much appreciated. Good strong Wi-fi. Allocated parking out front and a short walk to all sorts of restaurants in Stow, from fish and chips to high class foodie establishments. Especially recommend the Italian restaurant called Ostrea. Thanks for a lovely stay, I hope we will be back soon.
