    “Ication was very central for everything we wanted to see in The Cotswolds and right in the centre of Stow.”

    The cottage was beautifully furnished and cosy too. We had all the mod cons and the added benefit of secure parking,

    The cottage was beautifully furnished and cosy too. We had all the mod cons and the added benefit of secure parking, would love to return in the future! The owners are really nice and we spoke to them both and had e mails from them. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect place!

The property

Resting in the centre of the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold sits this remarkable stone-built holiday home, Coln Cottage.

Boasting an interior full of traditional character and encompassed by the scenic countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Coln Cottage makes for the perfect base for a romantic escape.

Access the property through the shared courtyard and park up in the space provided at the foot of this lovely abode, making loading and unloading an easy task, before entering into the open-plan living space of your home-from-home.

Traditionally decorated with exposed stonework, rustic wooden beams and a warming flame-effect fire, the sociable space invites you to kick off your shoes and unwind with a moment of peace in front of the television; soak in the peaceful ambiance as you share a bottle of wine with your significant other, toasting to a wonderful retreat.

Cook up a storm in the nearby kitchen, fully-equipped with a range of modern amenities, including a handy dishwasher and washer/dryer to ensure an enjoyable stay-cation experience, and gather together at the intimate dining table to indulge in a candlelit dinner for two.

Escape the excitement and head upstairs to the first floor where you'll find the family bathroom, well-presented with a nautical blue interior and boasting a bath with an overhead shower; pour in the bubbles and delve into the pages of a captivating book with a soak in the tub, or wash away the day with a quick rinse.

When sleep calls, snuggle up under the covers in the sumptuous double bedroom, idyllically positioned under the intimate setting of the sloped ceiling, providing a calming setting to rest your head.

Take the short stroll from your doorstep into the heart of Stow-on-the-Wold where you'll find a fabulous array of local amenities to assist with your self-catering needs; add a touch of luxury to your stay and treat your significant other to a spot of cream tea at The Old Bakery Tea Room, enjoy your favourite tipple in the beer garden at The Porch House following an action-packed day, or pick up some locally-sourced cuts of meat from the award-winning butchers to prepare in your holiday home.

The village of Burton-on-the-Water is within easy reach, home to a miniature replica of the Cotswold-stone village at The Model Village; keep entertained and follow the yew hedge trails through The Dragonfly Maze or come face-to-face with over 500 fascinating species of birds at the Birdland Park & Gardens.

Lace up your walking boots and head off on foot to explore the breathtaking landscape that makes up the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, decorated with honey-stone villages and rolling countryside and home to over 5000km of walking and cycling trails, you'll be sure to find something to suit all abilities!

Renowned as the backdrop for the popular agricultural documentary Clarkson's Farm, the village of Chadlington is within touring distance, home to the infamous Diddly Squat Farm Shop, referred to as "a small barn full of good, no-nonsense things you'll like;" pick up some freshly harvested potatoes or some 'Cow Juice' from the on-site vending machine and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the cast members working on the fields nearby.

With all of this and more, choose Coln Cottage as your countryside retreat.

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.
