What a stunning spacious property. The pictures don't do it justice. Plenty of amenities, comfortable rooms and great beer! Fantastic family holiday. Thank you Andy and James.
Superb house in a wonderful setting
Old Brewery House is full of character, very spacious and well equipped. All the bedrooms are a good size with great views; the bathrooms were clean with powerful showers.
Andrew was very friendly and helpful and the beer was well received by our party.
We would definitely recommend the house for a holiday.
Charming house and location
Great space, fully equipped and welcoming
huge house in a spectacular location
This house couldn't have been more perfect for our family gathering. The rooms were all a great size, with plenty of space for everyone, including 4 young kids. (3yrs to 8 yrs). The property was quirky with lots of character and a gorgeous cozy log burner. The kitchen was really well stocked, with more pans, crockery and cutlery than you could possibly use. Everything in the house was well made and sturdy, perfect for the young children in our party. The lake, peacocks, black swans, ducks and views made it even more special and Stow was minutes away. Andrew, the property manager was very helpful with his local knowledge. Pubs and outings were all organised before we even arrived. Cake was also on the table for our arrival and was most welcome! (Thank you Andrew).
We booked the weekend here for my fathers 70th birthday. Every single one of us loved the place and would return again.
A rural hideaway yet close to some of the Cotswolds most delightful towns and attractions! The setting and architecture of Old Brewery House and the buildings that surround it are quintessentially Cotswolds and utterly idyllic. Its location is unique, being right in the heart of Donnington Brewery, whose buildings date back as far as the 12th Century. In 1827 it was bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery here in 1865. It remains a working brewery today and although running full time, has very little impact on the house or its occupants. Donnington Brewery is not open to the public and access to the brewery buildings is understandably prohibited. Beer, however, is available, should you desire it and you'll find links to chocolate box pretty Cotswolds inns that are supplied by Donnington Brewery.
Less than 2 miles from Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh and approximately 7 miles to Bourton on the Water. Chipping Norton, Chipping Campden and Broadway are all less than 20 minutes drive. Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham, Warwick and Tewkesbury are a little over half an hour away by car.
We can recommend including some great pubs, great local walks, local attractions the city of Oxford or Cheltenham are only half an hour away plus quintessential Cotswold towns like Burford and Moreton in Marsh are only a few miles away. Or we can help with beauty treatments and massage therapy at Daylesford (Organic Farm) or clay pigeon shooting locally or we can provide catering via an excellent local catering company that can come out and cook at the house.
Architecturally, Stow has many historic buildings around the market square, having risen to prosperity on the back of the wool trade in medieval times. The 15th century St Edwards parish church played a role in the civil war. The old town stocks still stand though not used much in recent years. These days, Stow has many boutique and antique shops to browse around and pubs and restaurants provide a large choice of places to eat.
Further afield villages built with the traditional honey coloured Cotswold limestone are within easy reach. Broadway Tower on the edge of the Cotswolds has views of 16 counties, so they say. Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Stratford on Avon or Snowshill Manor are all less than 45 minutes.
For those interested in walking, there are numerous walks in and around Stow, varying from gentle strolls to extended walks. A map of local walks can be had from the information centre or local shops. Cycles may be hired in Bourton on the Water and are an ideal way to explore the quieter back country lanes and the smaller villages of the Cotswolds, but the hills can be steep!
Cheltenham Festival Week, home of the famous Gold Cup, happens every March. Stow is only 35 minutes from the races.
Location Information: Sitting elegantly in the middle of the world famous Cotswold’s countryside, Stow-on-the-Wold is the quintessential English market town. Stow is a natural and historic meeting place, with a fine selection of 16th century Cotswold stone shops, luxury hotels, chic bistros, inns, elegant manor house hotels and cosy teashops. The combination of rural informality and fine food and drink makes this small market town the ideal destination for a holiday or weekend break. Along with Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-in-the-Water, Stow is one of the best known of the small Cotswold towns. It is the highest point in the Cotswolds, standing on top of an 800 feet hill, and is situated at the meeting place of seven roads, including the Roman Fosse Way, which runs from Exeter to Lincoln in an almost straight line.
Great centre for discovering this most attractive part of England, with its sleepy stone villages and interesting market towns. Also good for walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists, theatre/opera goers and those interested in historical buildings. Close to Bourton on the Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Chipping Norton and within 45 mins drive of Oxford, Stratford on Avon and Cheltenham.
