Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We appreciated the wine and box of biscuits and also the hiking sticks and lots of information and books about the area. I would have given five stars but the oven trays had not been cleaned and this was not dealt with although it was reported. We also had problems with the alarm in the kitchen which kept buzzing as...

Management response:

Thank you for your complimentary comments on Lilac Cottage. Regarding the alarm battery, we do provide replacement batteries and I apologise for the oven not being dealt with. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you again in the future.

Lilac Cottage exceeded all our expectations. It was quiet, very nicely furnished, comfortable and had every amenity we as first time visitors to the Cotswolds (from the US) could have needed or wanted. Access to nearby villages via rental car or by foot in many cases was easy. Each evening we had a myriad of very good restaurants to chose...

Management response:

We are so pleased you enjoyed your first visit to the Cotswolds and that we were able to provide a comfortable base from which you could explore. Thank you for the recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

This was our first visit to Stow in the world and Lilac Cottage made it better, wonderful location for local town and the Cotswolds in general. Good to have parking and garden.

About the neighbourhood
Stow-on-the-Wold is different from most Cotswold towns in that it is built around a Market Square which is ideal for wandering around the antique, gift and clothes shops, restaurants, tea shops, pubs (some with local beers). The market cross commemorates the role Stow played in the English Civil War, in which the parish church of St Edward's also played its part. St Edward's Hall in the Square regularly hosts events such as craft & antique fairs. <BR><BR>There are traditional independent shops such as a bakery, butcher, delicatessens and my personal favourite - the Cotswold Chocolate Shop where you can watch chocolate being made. There is also a late shop in the square and a 24-hour supermarket just on the outskirts. <BR><BR>As previously mentioned,... more
