  • "A lovely little cottage on the Main Street in Stow on the Wold, well equipped and in very good condition."

    JulieJul 2021

  • "The cottage was the perfect place for our first holiday with our three month old baby."

    It was much nicer than the photos suggest, very warm and lots of space. It was the prettiest house on the street and we often opened the door to people posing outside! Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Overall, a very enjoyable stay with all the facilities we needed."

    The decor of the cottage was attractive and the cottage itself very comfortable. The location in the heart of Stow on the Wold was perfect for going on country walks in the surrounding area and exploring the beautiful town.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a lovely village."

    There is everything you need for a perfect stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the communal space very cosy. Also there are few board games that can provide evening entertainment. Two bathrooms are also very handy. There are also many walks that starts from Stow and many amenities nearby.

    TimothyJul 2018

  • "Well appointed, comfortable and all mod cons."

    Responsive hosts, too, when we had a very minor issue with the broadband (no one's fault, just one of those things). Would definitely recommend.

    PabloOct 2017

  • "We had such a fabulous stay at Whitsun Cottage."

    The location was just perfect, and the house was the perfect set up for our family. We especially appreciated the two safety gates being installed for our children, it really helped keep them contained, thank you!

    RochelleSep 2017

  • "We were fortunate to grab this cottage at the last minute after being let down terribly by AIRBNB."

    It was a 60th birthday weekend and the cottage was just perfect for our needs. Well situated and everything provided for us - we hope to go back again soon.

    JulieJun 2017

The property

Set in the popular market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, Whitsun Cottage is a spacious two-bedroom Cotswold stone cottage laid out across two floors.

Dating back to the 19th century, period pieces have been complimented throughout with contemporary additions making it the perfect retreat for families or groups of friends who are seeking a relaxing home-from-home break.

The cottage is hard to miss as the striking Virgina Creeper plant spreads across the front of the building, becoming particularly compelling in the Autumn months, and making the cottage stand-out.

The front door opens straight into the dining room which has beautiful exposed wooden beams, stone fireplace and wood burning stove.

Take a seat on the window seat and enjoy watching the world go by.

The sitting room offers a calming space to relax and boasts a stone fireplace with woodburning stove to take advantage of on those chiller nights, so make yourself a warm drink and end the day right relaxing in this welcoming room.

Moving into the compact but well-equipped kitchen, you will find everything you need to cook up a succulent meal to enjoy with friends or family.

In the summer months, make use of the barbecue in the enclosed courtyard and tuck into your meal alfresco style.

Moving up the staircase to the first floor you will find two welcoming bedrooms, both overlooking Sheep Street below; the master bedroom is a double and the second bedroom is a twin, both the perfect retreat to lay your head after a long day of exploring the Cotswolds.

A large landing/study area sits at the top of the stairs, which is a peaceful nook to read your favourite book, or additional bed space on request.

No more fighting for the bathroom as this property has a shower room and a family bathroom where you can enjoy an idyllic rinse at the end of the day in the large walk-in shower or a bubbly bath in the tub.

In the morning, get ready to head out for a day of exploring Stow-on-the-Wold where just a stone's throw away from Whitsun Cottage are many local amenities including pubs, tearooms and individual shops.

Make a visit to The Old Bakery Tea Room which offers award winning light bites, baked goods and cream teas, or venture over to one of the many contemporary art galleries in Stow such as Clarendon Fine Art and Fosse Gallery.

Take a car ride further afield with a visit to Chadlington, where you will find Diddly Squat Farm shop where you can purchase freshly harvested potatoes and some ‘Cow Juice’!

Stow is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with many scenic walks and cycle routes right on its doorstep; you can take the walk from Stow-on the-Wold to Bourton-on-the-Water and enjoy the picturesque views and delightful honeyed stone-walled cottages on the way, finishing in the bustling town of Bourton-on-the-Water.

Spend the day in beloved towns in the North Cotswold such as Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Burford or further afield in Cirencester and Oxford where you will find Blenheim Palace.

Or perhaps you want to enjoy the serenity of local neighbouring villages such as Broadwell, Lower Swell and The Oddingtons, where you can reward yourself from a long day walking with a mouth-watering refreshment in one of the popular inns.

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.

Region Information

Note: The property is located on one of Stow's busier roads and some guests may be aware of traffic noise at night; the cottage is, however, relatively close to a junction, so traffic speed is limited past the house. Note: The Stow Horse Fair is held twice a year, on the Thursday closest to 12th May and the Thursday closest to 24th October, this is a traditional fair for people to meet up and trade which dates back to 1476 when its Charter was granted; Stow is very busy for a day or two before and after each fair, and a number of shops, pubs and restaurants are closed. Note: There is a single sofa bed and single truckle bed that can be made up on request.
