  • "Very nice apartment at a very good location."

    There are stairs but we were able to manage that with 3 kids under 6 so not an issue. Recommended!

  • "This place was amazing!"

    As long as you can do stairs, this is the place for you. It is up one flight of stairs for the main sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms are up one more floor. We were there in November and it was warm and simply lovely. There is a sandwich shop straight across the street. And the only noise is the church bells which we loved. You enter the property from the back of the building in a little ally. Very private and charming. If you are wondering if this is the place for you, it is! The location could not be better. All of Stow just steps away.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased that you loved The Loft and its location in Stow. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Great property, clean and comfortable, superb location for exploring the town on foot and the wider area by car."

    Only very minor points were no overn gloves, but we managed fone with tea towels. Oh and the toilet flush is pretty useless

  • "The property was excellent."

    Well maintained, cosy, and delightfully decorated. Great location, and very central to the community. Only problem we encountered was ongoing issues with the door key, as it would take repeated tries to open the outside door. Locking and opening from the inside was no problem.

    Thank you for taking time to leave this feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and will investigate the door. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The Loft was so comfortable for our family of four while we stayed at the Cotswolds."

    The place was amazingly clean, had everything we needed for a week, was close and convenient to the village and so comfortable. The beds were amazing and it felt like home the entire time we were there.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Loft. Best wishes, Character Property Owner

  • "Great little cottage with great location."

    Only downside is the steep and narrow stairs, but can’t be helped due to location and architecture of cottage. Once inside cottage everything you need is within.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you found the stairs slightly steep. We hope you enjoyed your stay and exploring around Stow. Best wishes Character Cottages 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.
