“Wren House - a highlight of our trip to England”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

We stayed two nights at Wren House and never wanted to leave. We were met on a chilly day with a roaring fire, hot tea, and warm lemon cake. We felt at home as soon as we walked in to the beautiful stone house. The decorating is the perfect mix of formal and casual, with unique collections and fascinating art work. Our rooms were filled with a multitude of interesting books, magazines about the area, and every comfort we could ask for. Delicious breakfasts were served in the sunny open kitchen with views of the gardens all around. Kiloren was so helpful in planning our time in the Cotswolds. The view from our upstairs window included a thoughtfully laid out garden and sheep grazing in pastures across the road. So peaceful! Just what we were hoping to find in the English countryside.

Myself and my husband spent a week at the Granary and had a fabulous time. We had never been to the Cotswolds before and the information Kiloran supplied on the local area was invaluable. We were able to visit the loveliest villages and the most interesting local places of interest, a favourite was the Batsford Arboretum. We also had some lovely meals including a great lunch at the Horse and Groom in Bourton-on-the-Hill - again on the reccomendation of Kiloran.

The cottage itself had everything you need for two people and was very cosy. The living room had a lovely window seat where you could sit and admire the countryside. Overall I would reccomend visiting the Cotswolds and staying in this lovely cottage.

Thank you Kiloran for a delightful weekend - such attention to detail, and for making our stay in the Cotswolds so relaxing and enjoyable. It was lovely to stay for a few nights, the breakfast was delicious, and your knowledge of local attractions and the recommended tourist drive were great.

Wonderful place, just perfect. It is close to all the beautiful towns in Cotswolds and Kiloran McGrigor helped us to make an excellente itinerary visiting the prettiest villages and eating in very nice places (be sure to have a GPS in the car, it helps a lot!)
We've rented the Granary Cottage for 3 nights during the winter. The cottage is soooo cosy! It has just everything you need and privacy as well.
We don't have anything bad to say, we plan to go back to the Cotswolds someday and stay in the same cottage again!

We stayed a week at The Granary and had a wonderful time. The self-contained cottage is well-equipped with lots of reading material, a luxurious bathroom & comfy bed & lounge. It was peaceful and cosy. Can't recommend highly enough!

My wife and I visited Wren House in October and had a wonderful weekend...in fact it is hard to believe that the couple who wrote one of the reviews stayed in the same place!
The house is a beautiful Cotswold's house, well located, with lovely bedrooms and very comfortable beds.
We too have travelled round the country and the world and fully understand that bed and breakfast in the United Kingdom is usually what it says i.e. not 24 hour hotel accomodation. As requested, we arrived in the late afternoon and had a fulsome welcome from Kiloran with tea following shortly afterwards. We went out for dinner, slept well and were treated to a great English breakfast in the morning. We left a bit later than the time requested but felt no pressure at all to hold to a deadline.
Overall, we had a lovely weekend greatly helped by Kiloran's excellent hospitality.
We'll certainly be back next time we are in that part of the country.

Our party of four stayed at Wren House for the first two nights of our trip to England and Scotland. It was just perfect for us. Lovely surroundings, everything you could wish for in amenities, as well as a friendly and helpful host. The breakfast was fresh and delicious: it set the bar for the rest of the trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Wren House Bed and Breakfast is a charming 15th-century house in the small and peaceful hamlet of Donnington barely two miles from Stow-on-the-Wold. There are three double bedrooms and three dedicated bathrooms, one en suite, each with large and very comfortable (everyone says so!) kingsize beds and feather duvets. This is the private home of Mrs. Kiloran McGrigor and her two yellow Labradors opened up to staying guests. It has a beautiful south-facing garden, and all rooms overlook it, in which guests are invited to sit and, if fine, breakfast is served al fresco. Breakfasts are sumptuous affairs - lots of fruit, cereals, juice and yoghurt and full cooked breakfast if guests wish. Conversation round one table can be entertaining and stimulating. Next to Wren House is a self-catering cottage for two under the same ownership. Guests at the cottage can enjoy all day access and their own secluded garden so this works best for longer stays. ... more   less
