Park-up in one of two off-road parking spaces, before climbing the stairs up to your new home from home.

Step into the spacious living/dining room, where you can relax in the warmth and glow of a coal-effect gas fire and select your television viewing.

Whip up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, ready to enjoy at the dining table for four as you recount the day's adventures.

After dinner, indulge in a soak in the bath or a refreshing shower.

When sleep calls, retire to one of two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a bunk, both with plenty of storage.

Explore the idyllic town, where you will find a delightful selection of eateries right on your doorstep, including The Porch House, Alexiou’s, and The Old Butchers, perfect for those evenings when you don’t feel like cooking!

There is also a well-stocked supermarket, charming tearoom and historic medieval church, sure to entice any budding historians.

Head over, perhaps, to Bourton-on-the-Water, where you can tour the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection, wander around the Birdland Park & Gardens, spot the local wildlife at the Salmonsbury Meadows SSSI, or visit the town's famous Model Village.

After a day of exploring, why not stop for dinner at The Mousetrap Inn or sample local ales at the Cotswolds Brewery?

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.
