Location Information

Hill View House is located on the outskirts of the quaint village of Sibford Gower in the north of the Cotswolds, home to two village pubs and nestled amongst surrounding countryside where you can enjoy country walks and excellent cycling from your doorstep. Take a short drive to local attractions, such as Whichford Pottery or Feldon Valley for golf or dining or why not enjoy a tipple at nearby Hook Norton Brewery or a tasting at The Cotswold Distillery.

We spent a lovely bank holiday with our extended family at Hill View House. The set up worked well for our needs, and we enjoyed the large open plan kitchen with bi-fold doors over the extensive garden and view. Our one struggle was that the garden whilst enclosed, is not secure for dogs and so after ours got onto the road, we then had quite a time keeping an eye on them in the garden which is just so big!

We’re pleased that you enjoyed your family get together at Hill View House and found the set up worked well for your group, Kirsty. Although we’re sorry to hear about your dog! Whilst the garden is enclosed, the stream at the end of the garden is unfenced and it is suggested that children, infants, and pets are supervised at all times. We’re glad that your dog was okay and that overall you had a great time here.

3 generations together for a week. We had a fabulous time. Our party consisted of 8 adults, 2 twelve month old babies and 3 nutty spaniels all of which had a great time. The lovely house was bright and spacious. Wifi was excellent - my son and his wife were able to WFH. Large utility room that easily accommodated 3 dog crates where the dogs slept and ate. We brought 4 bikes with us. The surrounding area was great for cycling. Unfortunately there was nowhere to store them. We had lovely hot weather; full sun all day for 5 days. The back of the house is in full sun with absolutely no shade ; a parasol or sun canopy would have been ideal particularly with the little boys. Parasol is on our list to bring next time! A few more toilet rolls would be good, a couple of tea towels and maybe a dish cloth! Plan to return next yr as this lovely house ticked most of our boxes. Sharon, house keeper, was there if we need her. Thank you

Thank you Nicola for your lovely review on Hill View House, we are delighted the whole family including the dogs enjoyed the house and surrounding area. StayCotswold look forward to welcoming you back.
