Moreton in Marsh, Stow on the Wold & surrounding area
This is a very special and Award Winning holiday home. Set in the heart of Moreton in Marsh, Cotswold House is very much the grand (and perfect) Cotswold Retreat, presented beautifully and stylishly with huge, spacious rooms, fabulous 'floor to ceiling' windows and all within a hop, skip and jump of Moreton's many restaurants, pubs and shops. In fact we'd go as far to say this is one of the most unique and attractive holiday houses anywhere in the Cotswolds. We absolutely adore it and it appears so too do previous guests who voted it the Cotswolds' Best Holiday Cottage at the Cotswolds' Concierge Awards! The building dates back to the early 19th Century and while many features remain, today it is fitted with some stunning touches - oak flooring, top of the range kitchen (including Aga) and some lovely bathrooms. Each of the rooms are unique, with a flair that demonstrates the owner's creativity and film-making background! Downstairs the ground-floor rooms have a lovely flow, perfect for entertaining or simply 'hanging out' before you pootle off to Moreton. (You can stay in and play snooker or darts if you prefer). Upstairs the bedrooms, which are spread across two floors, are a joy. There is ample off street parking, plus you'rejust 2mins from the train station which whisks up from London in about 1 hr 25 mins. This is an excellent holiday cottage in every respect, perfect for a large family or for a large group who fancy a home for a 'proper' holiday or equally perfect for a short weekend trip to the Cotswolds. Tip-Top!

Moreton-in-Marsh is an attractive market town situated in the northern Cotswolds at the head of the Evenlode valley, on the Fosse Way, and mid way between Chipping Norton and Stow on the Wold. Hundreds of years ago, it was once a major stopping point on a Roman road which travelled from the south coast all the way to Lincoln. Much of the towns architecture is still evident and displays history and classic signs of the region's 'style'.
As you would expect the town has a long history including being a stopping location for the old coaching route from London to Worcester, hence several coaching inns that still exist today. Additionally, there is The Four Shires Stone is about two miles out of the town - the meeting place of four counties: Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.
Today the town has a great selection of shops including teashops, restaurants, antiques and art galleries. There are many delightful Cotswolds villages within a short drive with more of the well known hotspots such as Bourton on the Water, Burford and Stow on the Wold very close by. Warwick and Warwick Castle plus Stratford upon Avon are nearby also.
Daylesford, the popular farm shop and Day Spa (plus so much more) is no more than 10 mins drive away, as are some of the Cotswolds most popular and attractive villages.
Add to this the fact that there is a train station in Moreton (just 2 mins walk away also) with direct access to Oxford and London, a great location for sure!!
