Neat, compact bungalow close to the centre of Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold in a quiet suburban cul-de-sac location making the perfect holiday getaway for a family looking to discover the area.

Friends, families and the family dog will find a home from home at this Cotswold delight. Explore the ancient market town of Stow-on-the-Wold’s selection of tea rooms, restaurants, art galleries and antiques shops, or pop into the Cotswold Cricket Museum. Enjoy an enchanting round at Naunton Downs Golf Course (6 miles) and discover the delights of Moreton-in-Marsh (4.5 miles), with its huge open-air Tuesday street market and elegant 17th and 18th-century architecture. The doors to Stow’s St Edward’s Church were said to have influenced Tolkien’s ‘Doors of Durin’ in The Lord of the Rings.

Inside the cottage you’ll find a charming blend of country comfort, retro and vintage furniture and easy Cotswold elegance. After wild days of adventure through town and country, stash muddy boots in the hall and unwind together in the cosy lounge/diner around the glowing gas fire to chat over the day’s adventures. Conjure up feast of tasty local produce in the streamlined kitchen and enjoy them al fresco in the courtyard garden, which catches the sun in the morning. Take a relaxing soak in the tub before unwinding in the double and twin bedrooms, both with views of the garden.

Catch the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway from Toddington (10.5 miles), Broadway (12.5 miles) or Winchcombe (13.5 miles); it also stops at Cheltenham Racecourse (21 miles). Visit the cathedral in Cheltenham (20 miles), or head to Banbury (21 miles) and Oxford (30 miles) for a day out. Adventurers with both two and four legs will love Birdland and The Dragonfly Maze at Bourton-on-the-Water (5 miles), Batsford Arboretum (6 miles), the Cotswold Wildlife Park at Burford (13 miles) and Painswick Rococo Garden (27 miles).

A comfortable home within in a short distance to the town, plus the shortcuts. Plenty of variety when eating out.

Reviewed by Helene 24th August 2019

Ideal location for the town, a short walk away, the Cotswolds villages and tourist destinations. The house provided everything we needed, though I must confess I didn't do any real cooking! Some great eating places out and about both in Stow and in the surrounding area. Would recommend this house for a great base in the Cotswolds.

This has been the THIRD consecutive year we have stayed in the bungalow. It is beautifully clean on arrival. It is in an excellent location for walking into Stow and using the nearby Supermarket. It is superbly located for exploring the Cotswolds and this year we enjoyed visits to The Gloucester and Warwickshire Steam Railway, Broadway, Bourton on Read morethe Water and also Cirencester. We already plan to go again next year. Hide

This is our second visit within twelve months! The bungalow was immaculate on arrival. It is so convenient for both the local supermarket and also the delightful shops in the centre of Stow. It is in a great position for exploring the Cotswolds so we really enjoyed the beauty of the Lavender Farm near Snowshill and a trip on the Gloucestershire andRead more Warwickshire Steam Railway - this time starting from Broadway. So much to explore - we will be back next year! Hide
