  • "Very cosy and well located."

    Clean and well equipped. We had a lovely stay and would definitely come again and recommend to others. Only a few improvements: could do with matches/ newspaper/kindling to light the fire.

Positioned in the heart of the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, in a quiet bolthole lane, lies this character filled, charming family home which boasts period features such as a warming wood burning stove, exposed beams and Cotswold stone walls.

Sleeping four guests in two well-presented bedrooms, this cottage is the perfect getaway for a couple or a family wanting to explore the Cotswolds.

On approach to the cottage, marvel at the sweet sight of the harmonious courtyard garden that wraps around the front and the side and enter through the gated fence and into the secluded patio area.

The front door opens into the kitchen/diner which overlooks the garden, which has everything you will need for your stay; why not test your culinary skills and cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen and move to the dining table to tuck in whilst discussing your trip itinerary with your party.

The homely ambience of the sitting room provides a relaxing space to unwind after a day spent exploring the Cotswolds.

Get the fire burning in the woodburning stove and sit back with your favourite book and enjoy the serenity.

Completing the ground floor is a utility and cloakroom, available to store your muddy boots and coats and wash up in the basin.

When sleep calls, make your way up the stairs from the sitting room and discover two well-presented bedrooms and the bathroom.

About the location


Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. 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. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
