What you’ve said about Lilac Cottage…

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.

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!

The cottage is so lovely, so cosy and warm.  We loved the blue and white in the master bedroom, so soothing.  The view out of the window into the garden and the vista beyond is wonderful.   The sitting room is so comfortable and we enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres there each evening before venturing out for dinner.  We hope to return one day.

Many thanks for the welcome gifts which were very much appreciated!  The cottage is delightful in every way and is ideally placed, not only for exploring Stow itself, but lots of other similarly lovely and interesting towns and villages, plus of course the beautiful Cotswold countryside.  We hope to return soon!

Digbeth’s on Digbeth Street, Stow is well worth a visit; the food is lovely and beautifully presented.  A very relaxed atmosphere.

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.

Just to let you know what a great time we had.  Lilac is a lovely warm, welcoming cottage and we all felt very comfortable there.  Stow is a wonderful place and well situated.  We will definitely be using Lilac again and recommending it to anyone wanting to stay in the Cotswolds.  Thank you for your time and help.

I would like to convey the good wishes from the four of us who stayed at Lilac Cottage, we had a lovely time; we appreciated the welcoming gifts that were left for us.  The cottage itself was very clean … and we would recommend it to anyone … Once again, thank you for everything.

This was our 2nd visit to Lilac and a great visit as always.  Loved being in the Cotswolds over Christmas.  We went back to the Fox Inn and Horse & Groom in Oddington which did fantastic lunches so are well worth a visit.  Also, the walk by the stream and feeding the horses at Lower Slaughter, followed by a drink by the fire at the pub/hotel there.  We will be back!

Our 4th time in Stow and at Lilac Cottage – just as lovely.  The Queen’s Head was just as welcoming as ever and the food was fantastic.  Also loved Digbeth’s; the food was gorgeous and they made such an effort with the service and to make it Christmassy.

Thank you for a lovely, relaxing stay; we came to escape it all and that’s what we got!  Lilac Cottage is a comfortable and cosy place to stay.  We’ll be back!  Many thanks for cake and wine.
