Upper Slaughter, Cotswolds, England
No.1 The Square is a deceptively 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.

Live in the Cotswolds like a local. Upper Slaughter is a beautiful location with stone cottages. It is very peaceful and great for walks and enjoying the scenery. You need a car as the nearest town with shops is 5-10 minutes drive.

Management response:

Thank you for your review - so pleased you enjoyed your stay.

The cottage is gorgeous in every way. The best word to describe it, is idyllic. The owner had thought of everything to make our stay amazing, even down to some groceries in the fridge and games in the cupboard for our boys. Upper Slaughter is a quiet village, just perfect for exploring the nearby towns. We loved walking Wardens way...

Management response:
