Overview

Stow-on-the-Wold Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) + large sofa for 5th person

Our 200 year old cottage retains all the quaint charms of days-gone-by, but has all the amenities and comforts of a modern home. It’s a lovely and tranquil retreat in highly sought after Stow-on-the-Wold, one of England’s most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, reachable by car or train. Train station is ten minutes from nearby Moreton in Marsh with bus service to Stow. Train ride is just 1 hour and 20 minutes from London.

Within the village are The Royalist, the oldest inn in England, and St. Edward’s, one of the great wool churches, as well as the Toy and Collectors Museum. Stow has wonderful boutiques and galleries, excellent restaurants and tea rooms, and walking trails through the lovely countryside. Every weekend during any time of the year has something going on in town: antique markets, farmers markets with local produce, etc.

This warmly intimate two bedroom cottage has designer furniture, beautiful original art, antiques and a wood-burning fireplace to keep it cozy. The newly carpeted and painted living room features a 42 inch plasma television, SKY satellite programming and a DVD player. Enjoy music on our CD/Stereo/Digital Radio System while seated on our custom made corner sofa or a wing back armchair and foot stool.

The charming kitchen and dining area has been fully updated with new appliances including a fridge, electric stove, dishwasher and microwave as well as a gourmet’s cookware and utensils. Set the dining table for four with colorful glasses from our crystal cabinet. Washer and dryer on premises.

The master bedroom features a king size bed and a 21 inch LCD flat screen television. Guest bedroom has a double bed. Luxurious linens are provided. The fully modernized bathroom features a separate shower and a large tub for a satisfying and soapy plunge.

Outside the house is a lovely, gated garden with a deck and outdoor furniture for four and ample street parking. A telephone is provided as well as wireless Broadband Internet. Clean, well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement - sorry, no cats. Smoking is not allowed inside this home.

This central location in the Cotswolds is close to the area's other famous villages of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Burford, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water. 25 minutes away are Cirencester, Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have stayed in many rentals and Carters Cottage was one of the nicest places I've stayed. The owners have decorated beautifully and put thoughtfulness and care into what they provide their renters. The best thing is the overall aesthetic. The cottage is adorable... oh, and the beds and linens are fantastic (they were better than at home which is saying a lot). Thank you!

Lovely cottage in a charming Cotswold town

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well equipped, quaint cottage with a cosy little garden palatial.

Owners left lots of information for us

Walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants and walks.

Driving distance to too many places to list.

Had a wonderful, if wet, week exploring the area.

Cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

As two single ladies we enjoyed our stay in Carter's Cottage very much. As with many older properties the stairs are quite steep and would not be suitable for people with limited mobility. There were several good places to eat in Stowe.

Position Position Position!

  • 4 of 5

Virtually a block away from the Village centre, with plenty of choice for dinners and or self catering. There are more restaurants in a main road to the east of the town square, but they are much busier and a little pricier.

Had a little difficulty finding the cottage , some road works barriers obliterated the street sign, but it is the first gate on the left when heading down Shepherd's Row from Wells Lane.

It worked perfectly for us, a nice place to call home for a few days while on an International Sports Seminar. Comfy beds, enough room to leave stuff lying around and 2 loos! We were warm and cosy despite the British winter which included a little bit of snowing on Sunday night.

Don't miss the western door of the Church from the churchyard!

Cute cottage in fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage in an excellent location. Stow on the wold was a fantastic village for a stay in the Cotswolds. Village has everything you need and is in a central location for exploring the area.

The cottage itself was cute and only a minute or two walk from town. The kitchen was well equipped as was the rest of the place. Central heating kept us warm, comfortable bed and shower good. i of a hiccup on arrival but Brad was helpful. Name is on cottage not fence so keep a lookout when arriving. Parking just a minutes walk away.

Perfect cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with our choice of Carter's Cottage in Stow On The Wold. This comfy and cozy cottage had everything we needed for our week there. It is just a couple of minutes walk from village centre where there are many fine restaurants and pubs. We made two walks to neighbouring villages using the brochure with instructions that the owners supplied. Upper and Lower Slaughter were particularly lovely. We can also report that Brad's recommendations for dining were spot on. We had never been to the Cotswolds and Stow On the Wold proved to be an ideal base. Highly recommended. We hope to return.

Stunning home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights with our dog Myla. The cottage is beautiful and perfectly located. Very easy to get to from London, the cottage is full of everything you'd need for a stay. The information pack left for you if full to the brim on everything you need to know about the property and surrounding areas. We can't wait to stay again!
