  • "Really good location in Stow-on-the-wold, perfect for self catering with great facilities in the apartment or plenty of pubs to choose from in the area."

    Was really good to have a designated parking space (only really suitable for a small car though). The Apartment is really clean and comfortable - would definitely book again!

The welcoming Grade II listed abode is the ideal retreat for two couples or a small family of four spending a well-earned break in the breath-taking Cotswolds.

Neatly nestled between two shop fronts you will find the front door to The Apartment, as you enter the property you can kick off your walking boots, hang up your coats and make your way up the winding staircase and into the stylish home that provides everything you need during your stay.

The sitting room is light and airy due to its dual aspect quality, while boasting high-vaulted ceilings and exposed painted beams, it really does provide a welcoming solace after a day of exploring; why not take a seat at the window and watch the world go by, or settle down with your loved ones in front of the TV for a movie night?

The sofa in the sitting rooms pulls out to a double sofa bed for additional guests, available to you on request.

Head up the four steps to the well-equipped kitchen/diner where you can get creative with your culinary skills and enjoy a well-earned and warming dinner.

Overlooking the street below the bedroom is a warming sanctuary and boasts a super-king-size bed (this can be changed to twin beds on request), a wonderful place to rest your head after a long day.

In the morning, head up an additional four steps from the sitting room and enter the tasteful shower room, where you can start the day with an invigorating rinse in the walk-in rain shower.

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.
