  • "My husband and I enjoyed our week at the cottage over Christmas."

    The location is fantastic as it’s right in Stow but not on a busy street. The cottage is small but perfectly formed. The kitchen is large for the size of the cottage. It was well equipped - my only complaint is the lack of cooking vessels as there was only one roasting tray and one small baking dish. The pots were a bit on the small size. It would have been nice if we were supplied with some dishwasher tablets. I ended up purchasing a box and leaving the rest in the cottage for future guests. We also found some unwashed glasses and bowls in the dishwasher when we arrived (cleaning standard could be better as there were also toothpaste stains on the mirror frame in the bathroom). The lounge was on the smaller side but the sofa (and plenty of blankets) was perfect for the space, and it was so lovely to have a log burner for the winter season. The main bedroom has ample space, although the bed was a bit small. Although we didn’t use it, the second bedroom is quite small, so would be better suited to small children or just one adult. The bathroom was sufficient but the sink was quite small and it would benefit from some storage space. Parking on the street wasn’t an issue. Overall, the cottage was well suited for our quiet week in the area. And it is reasonably priced for the fantastic location!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you have had a wonderful stay and we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean and the kitchen is well equipped."

    The furnishings make the cottage feel very cosy. The location is perfect for Stow on the Wold and the Cotswolds. It was very helpful that there was some coffee, tea and dishwashing liquid.

The property

Situated in a quiet road within the heart of the historic market town, Stow-on-the-Wold, in a short row of cottages, you will find the lovely Primrose Cottage.

Built in the 18th century, the cottage has been freshly renovated, yet still holding its character such as exposed wooden beams and charming woodburning stove.

Ideal for families or groups of friends, sleeping up to four guests, Primrose Cottage is a splendid choice for your getaway to the Cotswolds.

Upon arrival in the quiet road, park your car in the nearby road and approach the property through the lovely courtyard garden, where the front door opens into the well-appointed and contemporary kitchen where you will find everything you require to make a delicious home-cooked meal to enjoy at the dining table with your guests and plan your itinerary for your wonderful trip to the Cotswolds, or if the weather permits, eat your dinner alfresco style in the little courtyard with outdoor table and chairs to the front of the property.

The sitting room is little, yet homely and warming, and has plenty of character including exposed oak beams and woodburning stove which is perfect for chilly winter nights.

When sleep calls, make your way up the stairs to the first floor where you will have a choice of two relaxing bedrooms; the master containing a double bed and second bedroom containing twin beds.

The bathroom finishing the first floor off nicely, contains a bath for you to relax in after a long day of traveling or exploring.

If you want to discover the history of Stow, take a walk around the market square, where you will find the town stock at one end which dates back to the 15th Century and is shaded by an old Elm Tree and at the opposite end, you will find the ancient Market Cross, originally erected as a symbolic reminder to traders of the times to deal honestly and fairly.

The market square is the heart of the community and offers boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Farmers’ Market which every second Thursday of each month, featuring inviting local produce.

Stay local and visit the Fosse Gallery to admire an array of contemporary British art, indulge in a bite to eat and drinks at The Stag at Stow, or revel in the scrumptious tea and cakes and cream tea at The Old Bakery Tea Room.

Keep yourself entertained by visiting local Bourton-on-the-Water where you can discover a miniature replica of the Cotswold-stone village at The Model Village, or enjoy a scrumptious picnic surrounded by wildlife at Birdland Park & Gardens.

Stow is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with many scenic walks and cycle routes right on its doorstep, including the Gloucestershire Way walking trail, a 94-mile trail from Chepstow Castle to Tewkesbury, passing through many Cotswold villages and towns on its route.

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.
