Description from owner

Description

A short walk to the centre of the popular Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold is this recently refurbished Cotswold stone cottage that has been finished to an excellent standard throughout with quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings. Neutral colours to enhance the feeling of space and light which contrast well with the original dark oak beams, feature fireplace and stone hearth.

The cottage is the end terrace of three positioned away from the road and has a suntrap garden which catches the afternoon sun - perfect for relaxing on the patio (furniture, parasol & bbq provided). Adjoining the cottage is the utility room which houses the washing machine, tumble drier, etc. Off-road parking available by arrangement for one car.

Just a few hundred yards to the nearest shop, pub and town square in this Cotswold town. A history of many, many years can be seen in the period cottages, traditional buildings and the once used 'stocks' on the green that can no doubt tell a story

Location description from owner

The 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.
