The property

This well furnished cottage is located in the grounds of the owners' home in Upper Swell, a quiet community just a few miles from Stow-on-the-facilities.

Wold's Flagstone Cottage is a romantic bolthole for two in a secluded setting surrounded by fields, allowing easy access to the wonders of the Cotswolds.

The open-plan living area has a light and airy vibe, with a sofa and armchair in front of the woodburning stove and TV, allowing you to relax after a hard day and catch up on your favourite TV shows.

Using the electric oven and range, microwave, fridge/freezer, and even the dishwasher, rustle up a home-cooked supper in the kitchen, so you won't have to lift a finger when washing up!

Take a seat on the patio furniture while the sun is shining and enjoy the tranquil surroundings while planning your next Cotswold adventure.

As the evening draws in, retire to the bedroom, which features a plush king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a choice of bath or shower.

Start your day with a cup of tea and breakfast before heading to the Golden Ball pub in nearby Lower Swell for a refreshing pint and lunch.

The surrounding area is a true walker's paradise, with miles of magnificent walking and cycling trails, as well as scenic estates and gardens, including the award-winning Bourton House Garden, which dates from the 1700s.

Visit the Neolithic burial remains at Belas Knap Long Barrow, the 13th century Hailes Abbey, or Chastleton House, which has excellent grounds, if you're interested in learning about the history of the Cotswolds.

Alternatively, visit Stratford-upon-Avon, where you'll find Shakespeare's birthplace as well as a plethora of independent shops and cafés.

If you want to go farther afield, the lively city of Gloucester is worth a visit, and the spa resort of Cheltenham promises fun if you go during race week!

Flagstone Cottage is a wonderful place to visit in Gloucestershire at any time of year.

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.

Please be aware - this property requires a Good House-keeping Bond of £100.00.
