Stow on the Wold, Stow on the Wold & surrounding area
Talbot Cottage is a very high standard of self catering accommodation, situated in the heart of Stow on the Wold. The property, which has been within the same family for generations, has been carefully renovated with a real attention to detail and a delightful art deco 'twist' making it unique and very appealing. Many of the original features such as the wooden floors have been beautifully retained. The accommodation, which is detached and across two floors is both spacious and cosy at the same time and overlooks the garden in all directions. Outside is a large garden with ample off street parking. This is ideal for families and small groups alike and with its very easy access to the centre of Stow, we think you will return here time and again!

This cottage is situated very close to the heart of Stow on the Wold. Situated down a little lane that leads towards fields in one direction the centre of Stow is literally a 'stone's throw' away. Stow, 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 market day each month as well some excellent little festivals which pepper the year.
Surrounding the town are a host of stunning villages with their pubs, which are well worth taking in and viewing. There are few better places to be than this area if you want to see 'classic Cotswolds'. We'd personally recommend Lower and Upper Swell, Lower and Upper Slaughter for a start, we could go on...!
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 Trusts Gardens, incl Kiftsgate and especially Hidcote Manor Gardens, one of the best in the country. We think you've got plenty to do.....!!!
"The cottage was very pleasant and in a good location for Stow and other local towns. The cottage had been nicely renovated and much thought had gone into decorating it in a style suited to the cottage’s 1930’s construction"Mrs Henderson 2017-10-28
"The owners were very friendly! The manor was very lovely, kitchen was very well equipped. We were also welcomed with a bottle of wine and some biscuits. The best part was the fireplace which came prepared and all we had to do was to light a match to get it going. The owners also left ample firewood and coal throughout our stay. It was definitely the highlight of our trip! The manor was very beautiful and cosy to stay in. We were lucky to be visiting when Stow and the surrounding towns had fireworks. On 2 nights, we could see fireworks from the property. The location was within 10 mins slow walk to Tesco and right across from the Stow town centre. Excellent location. One thing to note was the acute left turn into the garage. We were driving an estate/station wagon so we needed a bigger turning angle so we had to be extra careful whilst getting in. Just a nice to know. I would recommend this place because of the wonderful experience we had. Fantastic! Janice, Nov 2016"Janice 2016-11-03
"We enjoyed our stay here. The house was comfortable, homely, quaint and well equipt. It's a great location, close to the gorgeous town of Stow-on-the-wold. We were initially worried it would be noisy, set near a busy road, but there was nothing to worry about. The house is set back from the road and is sound proof. The house has a lovely garden and a nice aspect at the back. Thank you for a lovely stay.” Tanya, September 2016"Tanya 2016-09-15
