Stow-on-the-Wold: 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, 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.
Further area information is available on the Character Cottages website.
Food and drink: Stow has numerous places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit all tastes and budgets. For eating in, Stow 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.
