Excellent base for exploring the beautiful towns and villages nearby e.g. Burford, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Bibury, Snowshill. Then there is the extensive, beautiful countryside for walking - both serious and not-so-serious!

Local people retain their friendliness and helpfulness all through the year, however busy the season.

Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds welcomes travellers with its honey-coloured stone buildings, many with a story to tell - as do the local people!

There really is something for everyone in the Cotswolds: history, countryside, shopping, dining - or simply wonderful surroundings to do nothing. Cheltenham racecourse is a short drive away.

On a fine day, from the top of Broadway Tower, you can see between 5 and 17 counties ... depending on whose story you believe. But however many in truth, the view is outstanding. And the nearby cafe is not just a cafe - recently refurbished and providing excellent lunches (my personal recommendation) and a gift shop with so much more than postcards.

Feed the ducks in Bourton-on-the-Water. Admire the beautiful cottages in Lower Slaughter (the Mill is particularly interesting). Walk up one side of the main street in Burford (featured on Time Team), stop for refreshments, then walk back down the other side. Have afternoon tea at the Lygon Arms in Broadway, a wonderful historic hotel. I can personally recommend the hot chocolate at the Noel Arms in Chipping Campden and a visit to the Arts & Crafts studio/workshops off Sheep Street.

You can put on serious walking gear to explore the Cotswold area - there is a profusion of information showing walking / cycling routes. Or you can put on a pair of trainers, take a picnic in a backpack and wander.

Stow-on-the-Wold

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.

“Great short break”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2013

I stayed here with my husband & 11 month old baby for 3 nights & it was great. The owner was v helpful prior to our stay & let us check-in early & leave late which was much appreciated. The cottage is v well equipped with things like bin liners, kitchen roll, cling film, loo roll etc etc. All really useful stuff. Also, the kitchen equipment available was everything you'd need. The cottage is on a quiet cul-de-sac, just behind the Main Street in Stow. Short walk to the shops, pubs etc. I would definitely recommend this cottage for a couple or a small family.

We very much appreciate your positive feedback on Lilac Cottage - we do try to "go the extra mile" to make our guests welcome and give them a comfortable, enjoyable stay. We look forward to seeing you again.
