What you’ve said about Lilac Cottage…

Thank you so much for the privilege of spending a few days in your home.  It is truly beautiful!  We had a special visit with Father Christmas at Upton on the Hill – our 2 year old was excited.  We hope to visit the Cotswolds again soon.

A very enjoyable week spent in a very cost cottage in a beautiful area.  Would recommend Huffkins or Lucy’s Tearoom for afternoon tea!  Had as wonderful time here at Lilac Cottage, thank you for everything.


Once again, a lovely, relaxing stay at Lilac Cottage.  We do love your Christmas tree and decorations, it made it special.  Hope to come again next year.  Have a wonderful Christmas.


Translated from the French:

We have spent 4 nights in this marvellous cottage where quality and cost are unbeatable.  The cottage is charming and very tasteful, very well equipped, it lacks for nothing, it is extremely well decorated, warm and cosy.  The bedrooms are large enough.  Firewood is available for the guests so we had a nice fire, it was pleasant.  It’s a 10-minute walk to the village which is beautiful, it is one of the villages that we most appreciated in the Cotswolds.  … An address to use without hesitation.

We’ve been to Stow many times and stayed in several cottages but Lilac Cottage is definitely the best. Beautifully designed and decorated with several thoughtful details – the welcome tray was much appreciated as were all the other little touches. Stow and the Cotswolds as lovely as ever. We’re very much looking forward to our next stay.

We have so enjoyed our stay at Lilac Cottage, a perfect location for us to travel from village to village. The cottage is very well equipped and, thanks to Jenny, everything was in such great order, clean linens laid out for us and the cottage itself in great shape. We enjoyed building a fire on cold nights. Loved the shopping in and around Stow. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your cottage and hoping to be able to return.

What a great time in this wonderful cottage. We have seen a lot of beautiful places and enjoyed our stay. The cottage is so lovely and well equipped. We rested so well in those comfortable beds and enjoyed playing dominoes while listening to blues music on the Gigajuke.   We would love to come back soon.

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.

We’ve stayed at Lilac Cottage several times over the years and it gets better every time, thank you.  Particularly enjoyed the falconry display at Batsford Arboretum, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Gaydon Motor Museum and Toddington steam railway. The Indian restaurant on Digbeth Street was very good.  Have loved our week here and will certainly come again.  Even got to see shooting stars from the garden one night!
