The property

Set in the heart of Stow-on-the-Wold, within walking distance of the town centre, is 6 Yew Tree Cottages, an idyllic, double-fronted, Cotswold Stone cottage, ideal for a couple or small group wanting to escape to the tranquil countryside of the Cotswolds.

Park in your designated space opposite the property and take the short walk down the alleyway towards to cottage.

Enter the gate and walk up the garden path, which separates lawn areas on either side, with a bench you can perch on as you enjoy the foliage of the space, most notably the large hanging tree that drapes vibrant red flowers over the garden, while to the side and three steps up is a patio area with additional seating, where you can enjoy an alfresco breakfast in this quaint setting.

Step inside the property to be greeted by a charming sitting room, with furniture arranged around the feature stone fireplace, housing a woodburning stove, which can create a cosy ambiance when you feel like enjoying an evening in with a good film or book selected from the bookcase.

Three steps up is the dining area, a mezzanine-style space that's perfect for enjoying any meals you have rustled up in neutrally-styled, contemporary kitchen, which is compact but well equipped with all of the necessary appliances, while the handy utility room offers a washing machine, should you wish to do any washing during your stay.

Upstairs you will discover two bright and airy double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room with spacious walk-in shower and skylight, the other is served by the family bathroom, which offers a bath and handheld shower.

Venture into the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds and originally an Iron Age fort, with history dating back to the 10th century, where you can meander the narrow streets, explore charming independent boutiques and idyllic Cotswold stone cottages, and dine at one of the gastro pubs, restaurants or tea rooms.

The thriving market square regularly hosts events, including a monthly farmers' market, where you can pick up delicious local produce, as well as craft fairs and a bi-annual Gypsy Horse Fair.

Walkers and cyclists are well-placed for a number of fantastic trails that encompass picturesque rolling Cotswolds countryside, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by.

Head to nearby and picturesque Bourton-on-the-Water, resting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds', it is one of the most popular Cotswolds destinations, boasting picturesque bridges above the River Windrush, which runs through the centre.

Visit a host of attractions, including the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, the Birdland & Jurassic Journey, which has a large park and gardens housing over five hundred birds, and Greystones Farm Nature Reserve.

Explore the historic wonders of Blenheim Palace, a world heritage site and imposing country house of the Dukes of Marlborough, the National Trust's Snowshill Manor and Broadway Tower, reached via a hike up Broadway Hill.

The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town.
