Property Information

No more than a hop from the heart of Stow on the Wold, The Hive is as sweet and gorgeous as it sounds! Ideal for couples (no children under 12). A period house with a boutique feel that has undergone the most comprehensive overhaul imagineable, you are surrounded by quality and luxury. Inside, there is a smart open plan living area, more than ample space for up to 4 people, including an uber-smart kitchen that will allow you to enjoy cooking up a storm! The views towards the little green and Sheep Street beyond are lovely and for such a central property you are surprised at how peaceful it is. There are two bedrooms; a sublime master suite and a secluded twin/double upstairs too. Light and bright it is hard to believe this venerable old building is as old as it is, the clean and simple lines are relaxing and the quality of the fixtures and furnishings is a joy to behold.
The entire experience here is outstanding, we love it. Whether entertaining at home or taking advantage of the superb choices in Stow, this is an exceptional base to explore the cotswolds.


Entrance is across the patio of The Hive restaurant via a flight of external steps (12 in total), which takes you to the terrace, then through the front door into a hallway, which leads to main rooms on this floor. There is ample space for coats, boots, shoes etc.
Open Plan Living Area with large sofa, two armchairs, wall mounted Curved Samsung smart TV with Freeview and connected to a Sonos sound system, a large wood burner-effect fireplace (electric and with flames!)
Dining Area with circular table and four chairs

To the rear is a patio/terrace with table and chairs for four people, this is to the rear and looks across the Stow rooftops . There is parking for one small car, off street, but we do like to warn guests that parking is tricky and hence why we say a small car. Access to the terrace is directly from the property. To reach the parking area, you will pass through the rear seating area of The Hive.

Sorry No Pets. Children Aged 12+ please. Property not safe for younger chidlren, more a boutique escape. Wifi incl. Heating & Elec incl. £150 security deposit required.

Map & Local Information

Set on Digbeth Street and right in the heart of Stow, this is a great spot to enjoy all the fun that Stow offers! Stow on the Wold, of course, is one of the Cotswolds' most famous market towns, renowned for its quality shops, cafes and restaurants. Very much a working town, there is a farmers market each month as well as some excellent festivals which pop up through the year.

The Hive restuarant is one of the best places to meet and eat, serving meals from breakfast 'til afternoon tea. Beyond The Hive guests will have a massive choice of places to eat and drink and also a wide range of places to shop and browse.

Surrounding the town is a host of stunning villages with their pubs, which are well worth taking in. There are few better places to be than this area if you want to see 'classic Cotswolds'. The area is 'criss crossed' with footpaths and bridalways offering miles of idyllic cycling and walking routes. We'd personally recommend Lower and Upper Swell and Lower and Upper Slaughter for a start, we could go on...!

Daylesford, famous for its organic shop selling fine food and produce, is about 8 mins drive away - for those looking for top notch shopping you will enjoy a visit - there's a cafe and spa also.

Ever popular and beautiful is Bourton on the Water which is about 8 mins drive away, while places such as Burford, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Campden are equally easy to get to. If you're coming with the children then we would definitely recommend the Cotswold Farm Park (Guiting Power) and the Cotswold Wildlife Park (nr Burford). Again, we could go on, but there is plenty to enjoy.

Finally but not least, you really must try some of the local National Trust sites, incl Kiftsgate and especially Hidcote Manor Gardens, one of the best in the country. There is also Snowshill Manor and Snowshill Lavender close by. We think you've got plenty to do.....!!!
