Description

The Old School House is a traditional, detached, stone house (whole of house in photograph) in the conservation area of the quiet, unspoilt village of Lower Swell

The Old School House is a traditional, detached, stone house (whole of house in photograph) in the conservation area of the quiet, unspoilt village of Lower Swell. Originally built in 1869 for the village school mistress, the house has been renovated, having interiors which are both pretty and contemporary.
The holiday property boasts a selection of delightful interior and exterior features which make it an individual and unique choice. These include a beautiful old stone fireplace, original walk-in pantry, romantic bathroom with clawfoot bath and stone fireplace, not to mention its pretty bedrooms with French cotton bed linen. The curtains and fabrics are by Designers Guild, Colefax & Fowler and Liberty.
The tranquil garden with Cotswold stone walling and terrace overlooking the lawn with herbaceous borders, has distant views towards Stow church. The Donnington Way and Heart of England Way run along the nearby lane providing marvellous walking in peaceful countryside, yet the house is only 1 mile from the inns and restaurants of Stow-on-the-Wold, a pleasant stroll using the recently constructed Millennium footpath.

    This was a lovely cottage with plenty of space for us all. The beds were very comfortable and warm. All of the rooms were warm apart from the sitting room which was a little chilly. There were plenty of beautiful walks nearby and interesting places to see The local pub was a short walk away and very welcoming. Quite a good choice on the menu. Definitely a place that's worth another visit.

    We didn't realise that there wasn't going to be a proper shower, or that one of the double beds was actually just a queen (1.5 people sized). The kitchen was really quite small to try and cater for a big house full and we didn't even fill every room, so I don't know what you'd do at full capacity. There was damp visible in the sitting room, where the sofas were very worn, and paint was flaking in places throughout the property. Also cobwebs in lots of rooms. Nice bed linen and they'd been very welcoming and left wine, but some basics need attending to. Also rather tricky to find

    The propert was lovely but the expectations from the owner on leaving were excessive. There were notes all over the house telling you what not to do. There were no trays to fit in the oven which you were expected to clean on leaving. There was an expectation to wash the floor on leaving. However the garden was beautiful, the bedrooms lovely- although not all the double beds are actually double beds, some are 3/4 beds which is not stated. However we had a lovely stay in a beautiful area and the cottage is picturesque.
