Wren House
Bed and Breakfast in The Cotswolds near Stow-on-the-Wold
Peacefully situated, classic Cotswold stone Wren House stands on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Donnington, barely two miles from Stow-on-the-Wold, and looks across unspoilt rolling countryside.

Dating from the 15th Century, Wren House has been fully renovated to combine original charm with modern comfort. Cotswold stone floors with glowing rugs stretch through the ground floor, the colours are fresh, and maximum use is made of the natural light.
The bedrooms are elegantly decorated in classic fabrics with large, comfortable beds and have a sunny, southern aspect overlooking an imaginatively planted garden to the fields beyond. The bathrooms are new, fresh and bright.

Breakfast is served in the large kitchen or al fresco in the garden in the summer if the weather permits. It is relaxed and informal. A cereal and fruit buffet is always provided and a full ‘English’ cooked breakfast is also available to those who would like it. All guests sit at the same table and this leads to some lively and fun conversations.

This part of the North Cotswolds is richly served by excellent gastro-pubs, has lovely walks and is peppered with the beautiful towns and villages of Chipping Campden, Broadway, Snowshill, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water. Cheltenham, Oxford, Cirencester and Stratford-upon-Avon are all within an easy driving distance of around 30 minutes. Bath is only an attractive one and a half hour drive via Cirencester and Tetbury.

Wren House is a two hour drive from London, a one and a half hour drive from Heathrow and Bristol airports, and a one hour drive from Birmingham airport. Slap bang in the middle of England! It is an ideal central location to be able to head in any direction in the country and is just over half an hour’s drive from the M5, M4 and M40 motorways, yet still deep in glorious Cotswold countryside. Bath is only an attractive one and a half hour’s drive south via Cirencester and Tetbury.

Kiloran McGrigor has a wide knowledge of the area and is happy to help plan your itinerary. Together with her yellow Labradors, Gigha, and Gigha’s daughter, Ailsa, she offers a warm welcome to their friendly and relaxed home.

The Granary Self-Catering Cottage
At the side of Wren House is an idyllic Seventeeth Century Grade II listed Cotswold stone cottage – an old Granary – very recently stunningly converted into a surprisingly spacious one bedroom cottage. Delightfully classic in style, the cottage sits on its own divided from the main house by a tall hedge and dry stone walls giving both properties their privacy, and the Granary its own garden. The south-facing sitting room has far-reaching views across open fields and a quiet lane from an enticing window seat, and is equipped with wifi, a TV with DVD slot and a video, and a Sony Radio/CD player with iPOD dock. The French windows open onto its enclosed very sunny patio garden made up of a series of terraces with attractive and scented planting. Relaxing long chairs are provided to sleep off that delicious lunchtime glass of wine, there is a BBQ and table and chairs for alfresco dining. For cold winter evenings, a brand new and highly efficient log burner has been installed – just perfect to settle down snugly in front of after an invigorating walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Kiloran has undertaken extensive “what-would-I-want-in-a rented-cottage” renovation of the interior to ensure everything is finished to the highest quality and for the greatest comfort. The kitchen is compact but very efficiently laid out with ceramic hob, double oven, fridge freezer, washer dryer, microwave and full-sized dishwasher. There is a fold down table large enough for four with chairs in the sitting room. Upstairs, the brand new bathroom has a bath and a separate powerful shower with individually operated handheld and overhead spray, all elegantly finished with Cotswold coloured travetine tiles and underfloor heating. The large double bedroom has a 6′ x 6’6″ very comfortable Sleepeezee pocket sprung bed which can also be divided into a twin arrangement. The bedroom has a dual aspect and extensive cupboard space.

The cottage has been described as a Cotswold “tardis” – small on the outside, but spacious and light on the inside: a relaxing “home from home” for a couple within easy access to all the lovely north Cotswold villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, just under two miles away, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, and plenty of other lovely towns and villages, and miles of glorious rolling countryside. There are some excellent gastro-pubs very close by, so no need to cater if you prefer not to and a very good drinking pub within a mile’s walk – The Fox in Broadwell.

Lovely Soaps Provided

The cottage can also accommodate a baby – a travel cot and high chair can be provided.

The Granary is not ideal for young children (or the unsteady elderly) because of high, unguarded drops in the terraced garden.

There is ample off-road parking for two cars
