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.

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.
