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.
- 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
