    “The cottage itself was beautifully presented and immaculate, although it took bijou to a different level.”

    Proximity to Stow centre excellent. There were however a few elements that could be improved upon :- Bathroom mirror - At 5'3" I had to stand on tiptoe to apply makeup and then to dry hair had to use the plug on landing and again stand on tip toe to be able to see what I was doing. A long mirror on the wall space on the landing would solve this and the bathroom mirror/cupboard should be lowered.

    Proximity to Stow centre excellent. There were however a few elements that could be improved upon :- Bathroom mirror - At 5'3" I had to stand on tiptoe to apply makeup and then to dry hair had to use the plug on landing and again stand on tip toe to be able to see what I was doing. A long mirror on the wall space on the landing would solve this and the bathroom mirror/cupboard should be lowered. Plugs - in the bedroom, we had to slightly move a chest of drawers to get to the double plug. There was trailing lead under the bed but was very awkward to access as bed so close to the window wall. Most people need to charge phones/watches nowadays so a double plug either side of the bed is definitely warranted. Sofa - extremely uncomfortable to sit on, leaves no chance of being able to relax in the property. The TV also far too small. Would recommend looking at the comfort aspect of this room. Although we are fairly active and enjoy being out and about, sometimes if weather doesn't permit this it would be nice to relax in comfort. Parking - I initially booked this property as the photo clearly showed a pull in/car port area by the side of the cottage for a car parking space. It says on-road parking so did presume that this was it ie. parking on the road by the cottage. It is only when you read the print after that it states there is no parking with the cottage. This is not clearly obvious by the very deceiving photograph.

The property

Stow-on-the-Wold's historic town centre is home to 1 Manor Cottages, a beautiful stone-fronted property.

This charming holiday home in the Cotswolds can accommodate two people in its one bedroom, making it an ideal spot for a romantic getaway.

After a fun-filled day of exploring Stow-on-the-Wold, turn off the main road into the cottage's private setting and enter your home-away-from-home.

Enjoy a romantic dinner prepared by your partner in the fully-equipped kitchen while you cuddle up on the couch.

Spend some quality time together at the private dining table and discuss your travel plans or reminisce about the wonderful times you've had here.

Wash off the day in the shower room, then retire for some rest and rejuvenation in the double bedroom upstairs.

Located in the heart of Stow, 1 Manor Cottages is a short walk from the Queens Head Inn (a local favourite), D'Ambrosi Fine Foods, and The Kings Arms.

As a bonus, it's located in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is full of walking paths and stunning scenery.

In Stow, you can explore the Cotswolds' rich history at the Neolithic burial grounds of Belas Knap Long Barrow, the 13th-century Hailes Abbey, or Chastleton House, which is surrounded by beautiful grounds.

Fans of literature should visit Stratford upon Avon to see the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Shakespeare's New Room, and Shakespeare's Schoolroom and Guildhall where costumed interpreters of the playwright lead tours and displays about the playwright's life.

To see more of the country, head to the spa town of Cheltenham, which hosts the annual Cheltenham Races every March which you could experience if you time your trip right.

1 Manor Cottages is one of the best places to spend a romantic weekend in the Cotswold town of Stow.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
