Interaction with guests
We offer self check-in with a code lock on the front door. This means you don't have to worry about arriving at a set time and each member of your party can come and go as they please, without having to worry about sharing a door key!

Dawn, the housekeeper, lives just behind Birch House and is happy to help with any queries, or address any issues you may have during you stay. Dawn recently replaced a defective kettle within an hour and we were able to replace a faulty dishwasher on Christmas Eve, with just a few hours notice!

We do pride ourselves on our ability to respond and if there is an issue that needs addressing, we do kindly ask guests to raise it with Dawn during their stay, so we can rectify things quickly and effectively.

Excellent location just minutes walk to centre of Stow. The house adequately accommodated seven adults with all facilities in place. Stow is a lovely village and a great base for seeing the Cotswolds. Highly recommend this house.

We enjoyed a perfect holiday with our children and grandchildren. The house is in a great location and a spacious, comfortable home from home, well equipped with books and games. There is so much to do in this beautiful area we could happily have stayed another week!

About the neighborhood
Stow-on-the-Wold is a Cotswold Wool Town, situated in the heart of the Cotswold Hills on the Roman Fosse Way. It is the highest point in the Cotswolds at a height of 800 feet above sea level.King Henry I granted Stow its first charter for a weekly market in the year 1107. It soon became an important and famous market town, mostly due to the wool trade. Some of the houses nearby still feature alleyways (sheep runs) connected to the square, which were used for herding sheep to be sold at the market.Today, Stow-on-the-Wold is a bustling market town that thrives on tourism and the antiques trade. Many of the buildings date back to the 16th Century and are built from local honey-coloured Cotswold stone. There are numerous restaurants, tea-rooms and old English Inns in which to relax.Stratfo... more
