    It is ideally located, both for walking into Stow and exploring the many attractions in the area.

  • "A great location with all the things we needed for our stay."

    We enjoyed it very much. Easy to find our way to and from the flat when we ventured out, and having room to be together in the lounge or around the table was wonderful. Thank you.

  • "We had a very nice stay in Second Cottage, it is clean, comfortable, has good off road parking and a very well equipped kitchen."

    There are excellent walks which can be done from the door or there are many NT properties and lovely villages just a short drive away. The town square is very attractive with nice shops, tea rooms and pubs to explore. I would recommend to anyone, we had no issues at all and would definitely come back.

  • "Ideal situation for exploring the northern Cotswolds and walking into Stow."

    Clean, comfortable accommodation and excellent parking.

    Reviewed by Graham5.0Jun 2023

  • "Property was lovely, clean and comfortable however the holiday was ruined due to all of the local ameneties being closed for the entire duration of our stay."

    This meant no pubs or restaurants open within walking distance which to us was one of the key features of the property location. This was due to the Stow horse fair which happens twice a year and should have been known to the landlord and made clear on the property listing. Sykes has refused any partial refund which we requested which has put us off from booking with them again.

  • "We were very pleased with the property."

    It was warm and comfortable and the facilities were good. The location was excellent, just a short walk into the town centre! Would definitely stay there again!

  • "The photos do not do this property justice."

    It is more spacious and better looking in reality. All furniture and furnishings are of the highest standard and there is no detail that hasn't been thought of to ensure guest's comfort and convenience. The kitchen is so well supplied with every piece of equipment needed for even an extended stay. The central heating warmed the property within minutes of being switched on and there is even a beautiful coal effect gas fire in the lounge in case you just need a little heat rather than heating the whole property. It is only a few minutes walk to beautiful Stow-on- the -Wold Square which is full of independent shops, pubs and cafes, and a short drive to stunning Bourton-on-the Water which is well worth a visit. There was parking for 1 large or 2 small cars which was ideal. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would love to return if we are in the area in future.

After a day of exploring, why not stop for dinner at The Mousetrap Inn or sample local ales at the Cotswolds Brewery?

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.
