About the property

Situated in the heart of the ancient market town of Stow-on-the-Wold rests this charming stone-built holiday home, Coln Cottage.

Idyllically positioned within the rural countryside of the Cotswolds, Coln Cottage offers an intimate setting for a romantic getaway for two.

Enter through the shared courtyard and park up in your private space allocated at the foot of this lovely dwelling before unloading your belongings and stepping over the threshold and into your home-from-home for the duration of your trip.

Marvel at the traditional character of the open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with rustic exposed stonework, antique wooden beams and a warming flame-effect fire, offering a lovely spot to kick off your shoes and unwind with a cup of tea in front of the television following a day full of adventure.

Be charmed by the fully-equipped kitchen tucked away against the back wall at the rear of the sociable space, home to an array of modern amenities to assist with your self-catering needs, including a handy washer/dryer to freshen up your holiday attire; make use of the facilities provided to rustle up a romantic meal for two and gather together at the dining table to indulge in the fruits of your labour.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find a sumptuous double bedroom, idyllically nestled under the intimate setting of the sloped ceiling, providing a peaceful spot to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

In the morning, pour in the bubbles and indulge in a leisurely soak in the bath, or make use of the overhead shower to kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to a fantastic array of local amenities; indulge in a bite to eat in a rustic setting with a visit to The Stag at Stow, add a touch of luxury to your stay with a spot of cream tea at The Old Bakery Tea Room, or pick up some award-winning locally sourced produce from the butchers to prepare from the comfort of your holiday home.

Keep entertained with a visit to the nearby village of Burton-on-the-Water where you can discover a miniature replica of the Cotswold-stone village at The Model Village, lose yourself amongst the hedges at The Dragonfly Maze or meet over 500 species of birds with a visit to Birdland Park & Gardens; a lovely spot to enjoy a picnic surrounded by wildlife and woodland.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and embark on an adventure through the scenic landscape of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasting over 5000km of walking and cycling trails, passing through honey-stone villages and rolling countryside; take a leisurely stroll through the mature gardens at Batsford Arboretum or marvel at the captivating architecture of England's only surviving 17th-century grandstand with a visit to the National Trust's Lodge Park and Sherborne Park Estate.

Television buffs will be delighted with a visit to Chadlington, the backdrop of popular agricultural documentary, Clarkson's Farm, where you can pick up some 'Cow Juice' or freshly harvested potatoes from Diddly Squat Farm Shop, and if you time it right, you might even catch sight of the cast working in the surrounding fields!

For a rural escape, choose Coln Cottage.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

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.
