Come to the Cotswolds and you’ll likely find yourself booking a holiday cottage in Stow on the Wold. A pivotal Cotswold market town, it lies where all major Cotswold routes cross, including the Roman Fosse Way. Way back in Norman times the trading opportunities of this convergence resulted in the first foundations of the town. In the 17th century it was host to the last battle of the English Civil War. And today its perch at the top of the Cotswold hills is a thriving Cotswold holiday destination.
Stow on the Wold ticks all of the quintessential Cotswold boxes. Rich honey coloured Cotswold stone cottages and merchant houses form the structure of the town. Pubs, restaurants, antique shops, boutiques and cottages intermingle around a marketplace where thousands of sheep and farmers once gathered for enormous annual fairs at the height of the wool industry in the area.
Many visitors come here to set about exploring the region on foot and the popularity of Cotswold walking holidays continues apace. Whatever the purpose of your visit, our collection of cosy Stow on the Wold cottages is the perfect starting point.
