This cottage was a perfect find. Cozy, quaint and in a perfect location close to town. Beds were comfy and appreciated by a weary family that had taken an overnight flight from the US. The Wisteria in bloom everywhere was breathtaking.

Well situated, with an added bonus of a secluded garden. Well equipped kitchen. It is a perfect place to base yourselves and explore the Cotswolds. Overall, a great cottage and with a little more attention to the cleanliness, this would be the perfect retreat.

About the neighborhood
Stow-on-the-Wold is different from most Cotswold towns in that it is built around a Market Square which is ideal for wandering around the antique, gift and clothes shops, restaurants, tea shops, pubs (some with local beers). The market cross commemorates the role Stow played in the English Civil War, in which the parish church of St Edward's also played its part. St Edward's Hall in the Square regularly hosts events such as craft & antique fairs. There are traditional independent shops such as a bakery, butcher, delicatessens and my personal favourite - the Cotswold Chocolate Shop where you can watch chocolate being made. There is also a late shop in the square and a 24-hour supermarket just on the outskirts. As previously mentioned, there is a wealth of different eateries - pub food (very good!), cafes, bistros, top class restaurants; somewhere for every occasion. Stow also boasts the oldest inn in England on Digbeth Street. It is also worth mentioning that, off the market square are lovely alleyways to explore, sometimes with a surprise courtyard of shops.
