    “The house was generally excellent but our experience of dealing with Sykes was very poor.”

    ...

    We booked via Booking.com. On the day of travel I realised we had not received any arrival instructions so had no idea how we would gain entry. I tried repeatedly to ring Sykes Customer Service over the course of many hours but I was put on hold every time for in excess of 5 minutes each time. So I tried going through on the other phone line options ('Sales' etc) - these numbers were answered almost immediately but no one was prepared to help me other than to put me through to the unanswered Customer Service line. Sykes is clearly prepared to invest in their sales team but not their customer service team which is clearly understaffed. Eventually I was able to get an email address via Booking.com (Booking.com didn't otherwise help as it was too late). The email was answered an 1hr 40 mins later, in time for our departure. The property address on Booking.com is 'Stow on the Wold', but its actually in 'Lower Swell', just outside of Stow. To get the oven to work you have to fiddle randomly with the timing clock but this is a stab in the dark. Otherwise we found the house comfortable, welcoming, clean, warm and well equipped, and we enjoyed our stay after the stress of getting the arrival instructions. It would have scored 10 without the issues.

The property

Troutbeck is an absolutely perfect cottage for a family or group of friends looking to visit one of most attractive areas of the Cotswolds.

A place where you can kick back in plenty of space and relax, pop around the corner to the local pub and take in some of the region's best countryside.

From the front door you can walk into some stunning scenery, into an area that will remind you why this is such a beautiful location.

The house is a 'joining in' sort of home for families or groups where there is ample space to spread out.

Inside, the house is warm and welcoming, a large open plan living space stretching the entire depth of the house is especially lovely, but fear not a second Living Room allows for some peace if needed!

There are four large bedrooms, three upstairs and one downstairs plus three bathrooms too.

There's an enclosed garden too so you can bring your pooch.

With Stow on the Wold no more than a few minutes up the road, you'll be able to fill the cupboards with great local produce - stock up and stay put!

a great spot all round.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
