We had a wonderful stay at the Old Candle Shop in Moreton. The property is in a perfect location two minutes walk from the High Street with parking which is a huge bonus . It has been built to a high standard and offers very comfortable accommodation with lots of nice touches and more importantly is very clean. The owners have thought of everything to ensure guests have a perfect stay. We loved coming back after a day out to unwind in the hot tub. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery and utensils . We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at the Old Candle Shop and will certainly return next time we visit the Cotswolds . The whole process from booking the accommodation to checking in and out was simple and we had regular updates from StayCotswold who were very efficient.

Thank you Lynda for your fabulous review of The Old Candle Shop. We are delighted you had a wonderful stay and found the property to be in the perfect location, well equipped and very clean. We hope you will be back to stay again soon!

A wonderful bit of luxury with plenty of space to relax and unwind, everything there to make it a hone from home with a thoughtfully chilled bottle of prosecco on arrival. Brilliantly situated if you wanted to ditch the car for a week as so many eateries and shops and walks on the doorstep. Finish the day in the hot tub to totally de stress

Thank you for the really lovely review. We are delighted that you were able to relax at The Old Candle Shop and enjoyed your stay in Moreton in Marsh.

The house is lovely but more of a winter retreat that one for the summer. The rooms get very hot (granted we were in the middle of a heatwave), and there is only one small fan provided in the flat. There are no windows on the back of the sitting room area, so there is no venilation at all flowing thorugh the house on a hot day.The entire house is smaller than it appears in the photos. The living room is a decent size, with a nice open plan kitchen. There are two small bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms upstairs, where you have to duck your head if you're tall. The outdoor space is also not very big, and shares the space with your car if you're using it to park as well. The jacuzzi is a lovely feature which we used on most evenings.We had to ask for extra towels and a fresh change of sheets in the middle of the one week stay, as they weren't provided on entry.Lastly, the kitchenware is mostly / all Ikea stuff that is on the lower end of their range -- not really on par with the premium price paid for the stay.

Motez, thank you for sharing your feedback. The owners have purchased another fan for the bedrooms, there were originally two, but one seems to have been misplaced, also a taller fan for the downstairs area in case this is needed Typically, the property remains at a comfortable temperature, however I am aware that your booking fell at the time of an extreme heatwave in the UK. Guests are able to get a good feel for the size of the accommodation from the photos, 3D tour and also the floorplan provided online. Typically, a mid-stay clean and linen refresh is only provided for stays of 9 nights or more. It is however possible to arrange additional linen and towels if requested prior to arrival. Please note that this may be at an extra cost. We’ve not received any other feedback about the kitchenware, other than a suggestion of larger mugs which the owners have ordered. Overall, we do hope that you had an enjoyable stay at The Old Candle Shop.
