  • "The cottage was just like a home from home."

    The location was just right, in a quiet courtyard but central to the town. It was so calm and peaceful. We also found the people of Stow to be very friendly and helpful.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely and ideally located in Stow, a perfect base to explore many of the Cotswolds beautiful villages and sites."

    The garden is ideal with a pet and parking directly outside the cottage. Lots of amenities on the doorstep. To make the cottage perfect a washer/dryer would be a sensible addition - there is no washing line and only a clothes airer to dry any walking clothes which is not ideal given the British weather. There is a lack of storage in the kitchen which makes it difficult if you are self-catering - there is an abundance of kitchen equipment which could be reduced to give some limited storage space. Would highly recommend this as a great cottage to stay in and will look to come back next year.

    Thanks for the constructive feedback, I agree the storage is limited and I had too much additional equipment in there for guests. Now reduced. We have added a coat rack hanger and state that the cottage isnt really suitable given its limited space for hanging wet coats and muddy boots. We are struggling to justify the washer drier with the vast increase in electric costs at the moment but certainly have it on the radar for the future. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is in an excellent situation for all the amenities of Stow on the Wold."

    It was spotless from top to bottom One thing I would like to point out was that the refuse bin was completely full. I certainly would have put it out but the week we were there it was recycling collection. We were lucky the weather was excellent but if it had been raining there was no place to hang wet clothing.

    Thank you for feedback. We're so sorry that the waste bins had not been emptied, that is one service we really struggle with and as the owners live a 2 hour drive away we rely on the guests using the calander to put the rubbish out on rubbish day if they are in the cottage at the time. The owners do try and pop over and take the rubbish to the tip but its tricky not to interfere when someone is there on holiday. Property Owner

  • "Lovely second stay at the Old forge cottage- it’s the perfect location for going around Stow and ideal with parking and a little garden for our dog."

    The cottage kitchen is well equipped with what you need. The only thing which would be handy is clearer instructions how to turn the heating off as at times it was too hot but we couldn’t spot how to do this.

    Totally agree. We have , as a result of exactly that problem iinstalled a new central heating system in Jan 2021 with adjustable heat settings to replace the old storage heaters ! Property Owner

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.
