  • “We had a wonderful stay here, the house is in a very quiet location, and is perfectly placed for exploring the cotswolds.”

    There is good parking facilities, it's nice and warm with a great shower. Everything was very clean and easy to use. The only drawbacks were the following, I hope you will find this feedback helpful....the very big lounge has a tiny TV, needs a bigger one! The cooker is looking worn out and the seal is breaking around the oven, so needs updating.

    There is good parking facilities, it's nice and warm with a great shower. Everything was very clean and easy to use. The only drawbacks were the following, I hope you will find this feedback helpful....the very big lounge has a tiny TV, needs a bigger one! The cooker is looking worn out and the seal is breaking around the oven, so needs updating. My partner and I personally found the beds to be too firm for a comfortable night's sleep and the housekeeper should run a hoover under the beds as it's getting a bit dusty down there. The pub and shop is about 20 mins walk away, the pub can be accessed down a long lane and then it's a couple of fields walk (food was good) , the shop is great and I can reccomend the cafe quich, however you do need to navigate getting over a busy A road to get there walking and you need to walk on the green verge as there is no pathway, would be challenging for someone with limited mobility, however I guess they could drive.

The property

Windy Ridge Cottage is a beautifully quaint cottage located in a secluded country estate about 3 miles Outside Stow on the Wold.

How often can you say that you've stayed on a Cotswolds Estate.

The location is tucked down a little lane, within the hills, just Outside the village of Longborough, famous for its Operatic connections including its annual Opera Festival.

And on top of this is the beauty of the area which is as good as it gets.

The cottage is a quintessential Cotswolds building built with the mellow stone, nicely secluded and surrounded by an enclosed garden there is also access to the estate's arboretum of 3000 trees.

Inside, the cottage is spacious and roomy the Living Room with its triple aspect is especially attractive.

The kitchen, while basic, is well equipped and with a delightful Dining Room .

Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a third more than comfortable for two.

Every window frames beautiful views over the lush gardens and what is even better is that even though you are down a little quiet lane you are still only 300 yards from a top Cotswolds pub.

This place is a great choice and very good value. Please note this property has a Good House Keeping Bond of £100, this will be shadowed at the time of booking.
