The Central England/Cotswolds region

Stow-on-the-Wold

Sitting elegantly in the middle of the world famous Cotswold's countryside, Stow-on-the-Wold is the quintessential English market town. Stow is a natural and historic meeting place, with a fine selection of 16th century Cotswold stone shops, luxury hotels, chic bistros, inns, elegant manor house hotels and cosy teashops.

Along with Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-in-the-Water, Stow is one of the best known of the small Cotswold towns. It is the highest point in the Cotswolds, standing on top of an 800 feet hill, and is situated at the meeting place of seven roads, including the Roman Fosse Way, which runs from Exeter to Lincoln in an almost straight line.

Iron Age people were the first to settle in Stow, but there is also evidence of earlier settlements in this part of the Cotswolds, as Stone Age and Bronze Age burial mounds are common throughout the area. The first name of the town was Stow St. Edward or Edwardstow after the town's patron saint Edward, probably Edward the Martyr.

Stow-on-the-Wold in the 21st century looks quite a lot like Stow-on-the-Wold in the 17th century. It is the hub and service town for a rural community, but has maintained its traditional character. Stow is largely a town of small independent businesses, rather than the large chains that make many towns in England look the same.

It is this traditional character, and therefore individuality, combined with the beautiful honey-coloured Cotswold stone buildings, that make Stow so popular with tourists looking for 'picture-postcard' England. The town's tourist trade makes it possible for Stow to support many more good hotels, B&B's, pubs and restaurants than most other towns with a population of around 2,000.

Stow has been famous for many years as a centre for the antiques trade and in the last few years clusters of art galleries and fashionable clothing shops have added further character to the town centre.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe.

Stow on the Wold

Food & drink

Stow has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. It also has a Tesco and a Co-op for regular food purchases and, for a special treat, there are a number of delicatessens specialising in local produce.

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Burford and Chipping Norton containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also many traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the North Cotswolds.
