Rose Cottage (C538)
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Rose Cottage is lovely!
A classic, traditional cottage with stone walls, exposed beams throughout and 3 fireplaces (two with wood-burning stoves). Built around 1750 this cottage maintains its original character and heaps of charm but still offers all the modern facilities we've all come to expect. The cottage benefits from having a good sized kitchen/breakfast room, a traditional dining room and separate sitting room with 2 squishy settees (comfy for 4, snug for 5!). Apart from the well equipped and useful utility room, each room in the cottage bears some sign of its early life.
To the front of the cottage is a large secluded walled garden with mature shrubs and trees; there is a pond next to a decking area that has a bistro set - lovely for a chilled glass or two... Just outside the back door is another bistro set, ideal for a morning cuppa! To the side you have parking for 2-3 cars in the cottage driveway.
Rose Cottage is close to all of the local facilities. It is just a few minutes to the market square in Stow-on-the-Wold where there is an abundance of pubs, restaurants, antique shops and interesting boutiques. The town is surrounded by some of the prettiest countryside that The Cotswolds has to offer with stunning views, walks and quaint Cotswold villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Upper and Lower Swell, The Slaughters and many, many more.
Next door to Stonecot (C524) and The Old Forge Cottage (C537) so ideal for friends or families travelling together.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
From Windsor to the Welsh Borders our area offers a taste of what was and what is...fabulous properties of historic and architectural interest that sit alongside pretty tea rooms, gastro pubs, shops, restaurants etc etc!
In a simply stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are the Cotswolds with the unique honey-coloured stone, ancient woodlands and miles of rolling hills and over 3,000 miles of public footpaths. The rivers Windrush and Coln trickle their way through some of the prettiest Cotswold towns and villages you will ever come across, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury. Royal Berkshire and the Thames Valley are on the doorstep of the Capital. Stay in Windsor (with a royal neighbour!), be close to Henley-on-Thames famous for Henley Regatta or walk The Thames Path as the river meanders through rural villages, historic towns and peaceful water meadows before it reaches the Thames Barrier in the heart of London. From your 'own' front door you can explore the contrasts of Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Shropshire. Visit the theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon, walk the Ridgeway Path from the Thames in the west through to the atmospheric Chiltern Hills.
Our towns and villages optimise the English rural scene...cricket on the green, a glass of locally brewed beer, peace and quiet - lovely!
Stow on the Wold
Although said to have originated as an Iron Age fort (it is on a hill top), it later became a market town. This was because it was located at a point where several roads converged and therefore, advantage was taken of passing trade. Markets and fairs have been held there in the square since the 12th Century and handmade goods as well as livestock were traded. You can see several alleyways between the buildings, or tures as they were known, leading into the square and originally used to control the sheep being ushered into the square for sale.
Over the years the wool trade, and those linked to it, slowly died out and horses were sold at the fairs instead. The horse fair continues to this day and is held twice a year (May and October). A farmers' market is held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at which you can buy local produce.
Today Stow-on-the-Wold is a bustling town which attracts visitors from all over the world who come to see its famed honey-coloured Cotswold stone cottages and buildings. There are lots of little shops to visit and a good choice of restaurants, pubs and tearooms/coffee shops. It is well known for its numerous antique shops too. On view in the market square are some original medieval stocks, used at the time as a form of punishment.
Local attractions are Batsford Arboretum, Hidcote Manor, Birdland, Cotswold Motoring Museum, Cotswold Farm Park, Bourton Model Railway Exhibition, The Cotswold Falconry Centre and the Cotswold Wildlife Park, just outside Burford. Stow-on-the-Wold is just a 5-minute drive from Bourton-on-the-Water and Lower Slaughter. There are regular buses into Cheltenham and Moreton-in-Marsh, both on mainline train routes that go into London. Kingham Station, where you can park your car for the day, is less than 5 miles away, as is Moreton in Marsh station.
