We stayed in the Granary Cottage for a week in end July 2013. As a famlily with a 12 months old boy, we found the self-catering cottage perfect for our requirements, fully equipped, nice books, no china on display that can be broken by a toddler, doors (e.g. to stairs) can be properly closed. Apart from the terrace, which has a steep drop (explicitely pointed out by Kiloran on her homepage) we think the cottage itself is fairly children-safe. Kiloran was very helpful with any kind of issue or question we had. Quite a number of superb gastro pubs and restaurants can be found in the villages and towns nearby. The Feathered Nest (Nether Westcote) just under 8 miles, the Kingham Plough, Kingham, less than 6 miles, the Seagrave Arms in Weston Subedge (16 miles), very nice pubs in Stow-on-the-Wold (2 miles) like the Bell etc.
The area is beautiful and offers a lot of places to visit and opportunities for nice walks. We only regret that we didn't try Kiloran's breakfast, but prepared our own.
- 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
