    “Excellent website and app - allows you to countdown to your holiday which we liked!”

    Very easy to navigate and pay. Queries were dealt with swiftly. ...

    Very easy to navigate and pay. Queries were dealt with swiftly. The house itself is nestled down a lane, altho Longborough itself is a 10 minute walk away - the pub does an excellent Sunday lunch and is very welcoming! There is also a small community shop open every morning which supplies basics. The house is large & comfortable. It’s a little bit dated but it is scrupulously clean - which is so important while COVID is still with us. We used the heating and it warmed the house well - the hot water seemed to run out very quickly though which we reported. I suspect it warms up overnight and is available very early (7-8am) but on hols we were not showering until 10/11 so you may want to reset the timings!! The showers worked well tho - as did all the appliances we used. Disappointed we didn’t have wood for an open fire - but the lounge is cosy and the sofas are very comfortable. Overall, an excellent holiday - we visited 4 National Trust properties during our week as well as Blenheim Palace - which is definitely worth the 40 minute 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.
