Cosy and comfortable stay in lovely country cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay in this oldy worldly quirky comfy cottage. The property has everything one could wish for - charm, character, history, country feel, topped with little luxuries to make you feel very pampered and well looked after (scents and soaps from some of my favorite makes like The White Company and Neal's Yard, gorgeous bedding and towels, extremely comfy beds, games for every age (massive hit with my 4 year old daughter), books, music, wifi, enough kitchen utensils to cook up a storm and to top it all up beautiful views and a real log fire stove.....). We loved the quintessentially Englishness of the area - in particular Woodstock. Many many places to visit and things to do. We came looking for quiet time, us time, and re-kindle our love for this beautiful country time after a busy fast paced year - and we found it! Thanks Ros for the hospitality and for making this place happen. Highly recommended.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Old Bakehouse. Well equipped, very clean and all in a beautiful setting. We were even greeted with fresh baked scones and cream. Maybe it shouldn't in this peaceful location but I know for some it is important: the Internet connection is excellent. We highly recommend this cottage for your next stay in the Cotswolds.

Cozy, well-equipped cottage in idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at this wonderful cottage. As soon as we arrived we immediately wished we could stay longer. Ros and her daughter were very gracious hosts, the cottage was comfortable, clean, and nicely furnished. The village of Stonesfield is quaint and well located to explore the Cotswolds and surrounding area. My children, ages 9 and 10 loved it, especially the well-tended garden area. We can't wait to return for a longer visit.

the perfect country cottage - better than I could possibly have imagined

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, beautifully decorated and cosy cottage in a charming village. A perfect weekend retreat, well heated with a wood stove for chilly evenings and a well equipped kitchen, lovely large bathroom with deep bath and wonderful comfy mattresses and bedding. Lots of glorious walks nearby including to Blenheim Palace. But most important the landlady Rosamund was incredibly kind and welcoming and even left us home-made scones and jam when we arrived! A perfect country cottage.

Charming cottage. Thoughtful proprietor

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully appointed. We were left to our own devices and it felt very private despite having Ros nearby if we needed anything. Very tasteful and a log burner made our stay. We will be back.
