“Good location, bad sleep”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This cute cottage is located in an ideal spot to see the Cotswolds. One mile from Stow on Wold, this is remote but close to that lovely historic town. If you like to go on long walks, this is perfect. We set off from lower Swell to the Slaughters and then to Burton on Water before returning. A nine mile walk through picturesque country side replete with sheep, vast fields and fresh air.

The cottage is lovely and a perfect size for out family of four. The children shared a nice size room and there was even an extra bed and more floor space if you need it.

The master room was spacious, but the bed wasn't comfortable and gave us aching back due to the springs. We used extra bedding and comforters to help on night two but it still wasn't perfect. If you have a sensitive back bring sleeping bags, blow up mattress or extra comforter. If you are less fussy than we are () then this place is going to be fine.

The ground floor has a little family room with basic Sky channels and a wood burning stove. Great place to relax after a long walk! There is a kitchen and dining room if you need them.

Thank you for your review and I am glad that you liked the cottage. I am sorry that the bed did not suit you. The beds are medium firm as we felt that would suit most people.

This property is warm, spacious and well equipped. In the cottage there are local maps and guides to local attractions. A selection of books and games for children. Dvds and tv if you have the time watch. A small but what appears to be a sun trap of a garden, as well as a lovely conservatory to relax in.
Appletree Cottage is situated in a quiet cul de sac, In the heart of the Cotswold's. It is very well situated for touring the area, only 1 mile from the delightful Stow on the Wold. Lower Swell Village is nice for a stroll around and there are numerous paths and ways that pass through it.

“Spacious and charming cottage”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Located just outside Stow On The Wold this cottage has plenty of room and is very well equipped and ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. In the summer the outside furniture would be a bonus for sitting and relaxing. Not much in the village but a Tesco within 2 Miles and a local pub within walking distance which serves food ( not tried).

“Lovely place to stay in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved our stay at Appletree Cottage. The house is on a quiet street in pretty village, about a mile from Stow-on-the-Wold. House is spacious with good sized rooms, lots of space to relax, pretty terrace. If you like to hike, it is in walkable distance to other villages such as Stow, Bourton on the Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter. There are many guidebooks and (real) maps in the house to aid you. And it is a short drive to other towns such as Chipping Campden and Broadway. There is a large grocery store (Tesco) in Stow for all your food needs. Not many places in the Cotswolds are flexible in the rental period - this was great for us as we only had a few days not a whole week. We would definitely recommend Appletree Cottage to anyone visiting the Cotswolds.

“Fantastic House”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I booked a "mini break" at Appletree Cottage - as a surprise present for my wifes 60th Birthday - & what a great decision it was
The house [ to describe the property as a cottage doesn`t seem to do it justice to be honest!] is light, airy & spacious, very well equipped & in a great location.
Also some great little touches by the owners - including a welcome tray, fresh flowers in the living room, & the best of all - a cake & card for my wife [ I only mentioned her birthday briefly, when booking - several months earlier!]
And on top of all that...we had the best weather of the year so far!
Highly recommended
