I've stayed at Upper Larkstoke several times with my 7 year old son and it could not be a more perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life. As many others have noted, the views are simply spectacular, 360 degrees in every direction. Our rooms were beautifully decorated as is the entire house, which we got to enjoy...

If you want a luxury B&B in beautiful surroundings with wonderful hosts then this is the place for you. The rooms are all very spacious and comfortable with gorgeous bathrooms. I can't remember the last time I soaked myself for an hour in the bath. The cottage is surrounded by stunning countryside which is great for walking. The lovely Cotswold...

We had a wonderful stay at Larkstoke - we'd hoped for a quiet get-away and that's just what we got. The house is set is stunning grounds, far from main roads. Inside, the decor is very tasteful with a lovely lingering smell of wood smoke from the log fire. Laurie was a generous host giving us the run of the...

My wife and I really enjoyed our bank holiday weekend stay at Upper Larkstoke. We stayed in the Blue Room on the top floor and were delighted with the finish of our accommodation.

My wife and I needed a place to stay while we attended an event nearby. We were greeted warmly and shown a well appointed and immaculate room. The location is beautiful and peaceful and the breakfast does not disappoint, being plentiful, locally sourced and (most importantly) delicious. We'll definitely come back when we have more time to enjoy the area...

I booked Upper Larkstoke for a weekend getaway for my girlfriends birthday and as neither of us had been to the Cotswolds for quite some time, I wanted a picture perfect location, sheer relaxation, somewhere slightly away from the main tourist trail and a place to stay that was just that little bit extra special. Upper Larkstoke is all of...

We had a lovely weekend at Upper Larkstoke. The house is set in beautiful surroundings in the middle of nowhere! The owner kindly agreed to come and meet us at the village pub so that we didn't spend too long getting lost! The room that we stayed in (Broadway) was immaculate and beautifully furnished, with views out both sides. The...
