I planned a last minute trip to the Cotswolds and came across this wonderful place in the heart of the Cotswolds. We arrived late afternoon and were greeted by the lovely owners who offered tea and biscuits by the lake at the back of their house. How could we say no. The house is in a good location, it is peaceful and very clean. We stayed in the twin room with an ensuite shower which was perfect for us. There was a cupboard, tv, tea facilities etc. Breakfast was delicious and was served between 7 and 9 am. We were advised to visit the Slaughters and Bourton on the water which we did the next day. Would love to come back

When we drove up to this lovely place we were happy from the get go. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The lady who ran the place (sorry her name has left me) was very welcoming and helped us with restaurants as one of our party is a vegetarian. She even rang and booked for us. One of our party was unwell and stayed behind. When we returned she had been give home made chicked soup. Could not of asked for a better place to stay. Would return there in a blink.

We stayed here for 2 nights in 2 rooms with my parents, my husband and I and 13 year old son. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. Amanda gave great recommendations for dinner and things to see. The location was convenient, just outside of town. We also did a day trip to Oxford, an easy drive. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

Woodlands Guest House is in a very beautiful location and ideal for the Longborough Opera Festival.
We booked and paid a deposit some months in advance but when we arrived were told we would have to move rooms after one night.
The first room (ground floor, front of house) was dark and very small. Our second room was very pleasant with a nice view and good size bathroom. We assumed there would be a reduction for the first night but when we paid the balance at the end of our 7 nights stay were told the first room was the same price, which makes it very overpriced.
We were going to pay the balance of £535.00 by the same credit card we had paid the deposit of £76.43 but were told there would be an extra charge although there is no mention of this in advance.

me and my other half stayed here as we were attending a wedding in stow, and only booked for one night, upon arrival we were greeted by Rob who as soon as we had settled brought us tea and biscuits, bliss. we were in room 5 on the ground floor and was very clean and provided everything we needed, and overlooked the front garden, lovely setting. breakfast was freshly cooked to order and it was delicious. Rob and amanda are very friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble, my only regret is that we didnt stay longer, highly recommend

Lovely B&B with very friendly hosts. Really good breakfasts, and extremely well located for exploring the Cotswolds. About 5 minutes from the center of Stow, with available parking in the drive. Nice setting with sheep farms around, but right on one of the main roads after a good curve, so pulling in/out of the drive sometimes required a deep breath. I stayed for 3 nights and they provided tons of information and help, from dinner recommendations, to many walking maps available to borrow. The cute room & small bathroom provided everything I needed, except the heater sometimes inexplicably didn't seem to work. Overall highly recommended!

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Woodlands guest house. Our room was a double at the back of the house, with gorgeous views over the lake. The room was beautifully decorated and furnished and had everything you could need. The en-suite was finished to a very high standard with a separate bath and shower.

Amanda and Rob were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fab...we had a full English on our first morning which was really tasty. We couldn't manage another full English the second day - but there was a wide range of alternatives on offer, from fruit and yoghurts to a great selection of cereals.

Amanda and Rob had great local knowledge and helped us to plan our day exploring! They also had really helpful knowledge about local pubs/restaurants to try for our evening meals.

Amanda offers a wide range of beauty treatments and I had a fantastic massage, which really topped off our wonderfully relaxing weekend!

Thank you again Amanda and Rob.

Room Tip: I'm sure any rooms would have good views, but if you have a choice, do go for the back of the ho...
