Cottage had everything we needed and even more

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely, cosy and very clean cottage, which had everything we needed.

Rosamund is a fantastic host, who made us feel very welcome. There were Scones, cream, jam and milk when we arrived at the cottage. Arriving late in the evening on a Friday night, she was so kind to phone the nearby pub to make sure we would get something to eat before going to sleep.

The Cottage is a great location for exploring the Cotswolds and Oxford. But it is also a great place to just relax.

Very cozy house!

  • 4 of 5

The old bakehouse is a very cozy place with lots of character. The kitchen is small but well enough equiped to cook a simple meal and close enough to the pub to go for a nice pub meal. Recommended for people who prefer character over modern comfort. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!

A little slice of paradise in the Cotwolds

  • 5 of 5

On arriving at the Old Bakery in Boot Street, Stonesfield, we were greeted warmly on the terrace by its owner, Ros, who then served us her delicious home-made scones. The Old Bakery has been renovated recently and its historical integrity and picture- postcard appearance have been persevered very well. The cottage is furnished very tastefully and in keeping with its heritage; the kitchen in particular is very well equipped. Ros is a keen gardener and we loved her cottage and herb garden and the lush lawn at the back of the cottage - perfect for sitting with a book or appreciating the beautiful views over the village. We took advantage of Ros's extensive local knowledge and spent days rambling in the many quaint villages thereabouts. Our two weeks stay at the Old Bakery passed far too quickly but we hope to return for another holiday in the near future.

Amazing cottage and fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

The Old Bakery was beyond charming. It was the town bakery until the owner purchased it and converted it into the perfect Cotswolds cottage. Exposed beams, original floors, claw foot tub in the bathroom, and amazing views. We were welcomed by a plate of fresh scones and a lovely note from the owner Ros. She lives next door which is perfect if you have any questions. Very convienent location

We LOVED the Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a cozy cottage for my husband and I and our two teenage kids. We arrived late at the cottage and Ros had it all warm and the lights on and everything we needed was there. It is very authentic, yet warm and cozy. The story of the Old Bakehousue is sweet and the amenities are lovely. We enjoyed having breakfast in the sweet kitchen before going out for the day. We ate in Woodstock, only 10 minutes away, and one night we picked up pizza and brought it home so we could enjoy the awesome fireplace. There were lots of games to play and movies to watch. It was the perfect jumping off stop to explore Oxford and the Costwolds. We had a drive from North Cotswold Tours pick us up at the cottage and drive us around for the day. Robin was awesome and we recommend that as an outing if you are interested in that area. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and would love to stay there again. We were so thankful for the great hospitality.
