Another wonderful stay at Lilac Cottage … the garden looks lovely and the Cotswolds an idyllic place to be. We will be back to share again the delights of Lilac Cottage. THANK YOU!
Last two weeks have passed much too quickly but very pleasantly – in a wonderful cottage. We’ve been to England many times – but this time we found “the real England”. The key to that is of course this cosy house. Hopefully we will soon be back. Many thanks and best wishes for the future.
Hi Dianne, We had a fantastic week at your cottage. Stayed at many over the years but this really was top of the list as everything we needed was there. Cracking open fire, lovely dining/sitting room for us all to sit around and chat. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need and lots of pots and pans which is not the norm. The whole place had a lovely homely feel and all the boys were most impressed. Please may we book it again and can guarantee as long as it’s available we will book you every year. Steve.
We were reflecting on the year 2015 last evening and thought about our wonderful stay at Lilac Cottage We forgot to enter our comments into your guest book, but wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the week we spent there in early September. It was our third stay at Lilac Cottage in the last five years, and we hope to be able to return again in the future. We also appreciated your generous offer of allowing RK Services to drop off our car rental a day in advance because of a Bank Holiday conflict. That was truly going above and beyond what would be expected. Lilac Cottage is the ideal setting. Just the right mix of historic charm, modern convenience, lovely garden, and easy access to Stow-on-the-Wold restaurants. It’s a perfect base of operations for day trips to all the Cotswold villages and Oxford. Best wishes for good health and happiness in 2016, Robert and Suzanne Hardin Troy, Ohio USA
Stow on the Wold is only an hour from home but we definitely felt on holiday here. The cottage is superbly equipped and very conveniently located for exploring. We only had 4 days here but packed a lot in whilst still having time to relax. The Cotswolds is a beautiful part of the UK. – The Slaughters are very picturesque (take away ice cream from “The Old Mill” in Lower Slaughter, very nice). – The Miniature Village at Bourton is cheap and fun for children. – We had a very nice lunch at “The Plough” in Ford. Pretty good fish & chips from Stow too (Greedy’s, Park Street). – Cotswold Baguettes in Stow is good for an easy lunch and both “New England Coffee House” and “The Coffee House” served great barista-quality coffee.
We loved the opportunity to revisit Lilac Cottage, this time with our two daughters and son-in-law. The 5 of us managed very well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the cosy cottage and garden. Ideally located for cycling, walking, trips around the countryside to other Cotswold villages and returning always to Stow as home base. Thank you Dianne for all your efforts to ensure that our stay was a success.
Once again, a very enjoyable, relaxing time, staying at Lilac Cottage. The men enjoyed pints of Donnington Ale at the Queen’s Head, also two lovely meals – one at the Vine Leaf (Stow) the other at the Fox (Lower Oddington). Looking forward to coming back again. (P.S. We have been coming here for 10 years).
Thank you for a lovely stay at your amazing cottage in the idyllic Cotswolds. We did not realise that we could order sunshine as well!! We will be back soon, to sample the delights of Lilac Cottage. Look forward to wine and cheese in front of a burning fire. Our very best wishes for the future. Francesca & Rob.
Lovely cottage in great location. Enjoyed exploring Cotswolds again. Weather bit wet and cool but gave us an excuse to light the fire in the evening. Cottage very well stocked with all the essentials and wine provided went down well on first evening! Thank you – made a relaxing break.
We’ve had a lovely time at Lilac Cottage: lovely weather so we enjoyed the garden. Lovely days out in pretty Cotswold villages and enjoyed Hidcote Manor. The cottage is very well equipped and in a great location.
