No.1 The Square is a spacious, three bedroomed, Grade II listed, Cotswolds holiday cottage, just three miles from the beautiful market town of Stow on the Wold, in the peaceful village of Upper Slaughter. The cottage provides self catering holiday accommodation for up to six persons and is a wonderful base from which to explore the Cotswolds, being close to the historic market towns of Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Moreton in Marsh, Broadway and Burford.

Originally a paupers cottage dating back to at least the early 19th century, it (and the rest of The Square at Upper Slaughter) were remodelled in 1906 by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. More recently, the cottage has been updated to provide self catering holiday accommodation, but much emphasis has been placed on maintaining the integrity of the building. The result...

We loved our stay here - the house was outstanding in all regards. Fascinating to stay in one of the premier Cotswold (and blessed) villages. The Lutyens connection is particularly interesting. Lovely to walk to the church, along the river/through the ford etc. Totally outstanding - the only problem being the house is so popular, I have not been able... more

This cottage is much larger on the inside than it looks from the outside, it had a wood burning fire with fuel sticks and matches all provided. There is lots of helpful information provided about the surrounding area, which was beautiful. Kathy was always very quick an friendly in responding to our booking and other queries prior to arrival. more

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review. Its quite tricky highlighting how spacious the cottage is (not exactly what you expect from an early 19th century paupers cottage!), but hopefully all our guests are as pleasantly surprised when they first walk in. Thank you again. All the very best, Katy more
