    “A luxurious retreat with wonderful, thoughtful hosts”

    My family and I had a wonderful time at The Old Milking Barn, on a three-night stay in February. Sophie and Gavin are the most welcoming and lovely couple, and are on hand, should you need anything, in the house next door. On arrival, we were bowled over by the homemade cake, breakfast and wine hamper, which made you feel totally spoilt right from the start! Sophie came to welcome us personally and showed us around.

    My family and I had a wonderful time at The Old Milking Barn, on a three-night stay in February. Sophie and Gavin are the most welcoming and lovely couple, and are on hand, should you need anything, in the house next door. On arrival, we were bowled over by the homemade cake, breakfast and wine hamper, which made you feel totally spoilt right from the start! Sophie came to welcome us personally and showed us around. The barn itself is beautifully kitted out in extremely tasteful, high quality decor, and was spotlessly clean. The bed was quite literally the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in (and I’ve stayed in a lot of holiday cottages - nowhere else comes close)! The Daylesford hand soaps and fluffy towels are a lovely touch. We very much enjoyed lighting the wood burner in the evening too, which was fully supplied with wood. In terms of location, it is a really stunning spot, and opening the blinds in the morning was a pleasure. It is secluded, but also close to local towns of interest: Stow, Moreton and Chipping Norton are all only 10 minutes away. I would highly recommend this holiday cottage - you will not find better for a luxurious weekend getaway!

The vast open plan living space on the ground floor is furnished to a high specification, with the uber cool kitchen a real thing of beauty!

Stunning!

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

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.

Note: The twin bedroom is accessed via a small step ladder and therefore may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
