  • “Windy ridge cottage was in an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds.”

    However the cottage needs some tlc!! Our first impressions on the approach to the cottage was the unkempt appearance of the garden. We understand that gardens can look untidy at this time of year but this looked like it had been pretty much untouched ! The kitchen was well equipped but there was Black mould on the pipe work and the tumble drier didn’t work.

    However the cottage needs some tlc!! Our first impressions on the approach to the cottage was the unkempt appearance of the garden. We understand that gardens can look untidy at this time of year but this looked like it had been pretty much untouched ! The kitchen was well equipped but there was Black mould on the pipe work and the tumble drier didn’t work. The boot room (where our dogs slept) was also rather unclean with a disused fridge freezer with a very mouldy interior . Views from the windows were of an overgrown ‘paddock’ with rubbish lying around. The rest of the cottage was comfortable and we had ‘just’ enough logs for the first evening. There was no information as to where we could purchase logs for the next 2 nights. The shower was very slow to empty causing water to overflow the tray. The switch on the hairdryer was also broken. This cottage could be stunning . It’s a lovely accommodation which is in need of a revamp. It is also classed as dog friendly but with no outside tap/hose we were constantly struggling to cope with the mud they acquired on our daily walks . We wouldn’t consider bringing muddy dogs into our own house let alone someone else’s . Walking boots created a similar issue.

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.
