Summary

The Crook is a beautiful, Grade II listed house, dating back to the 18th century and located in the heart of the quintessential English market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. The house contains a wealth of character features, including wooden beams, flagstone floors, exposed walls and fireplaces. Complementing these period features, The Crook has been decorated, furnished and equipped in a warm and contemporary style, making the house a perfect holiday choice for families or groups of friends.

The Crook sleeps up to eight people in four bedrooms – see bedroom configuration below. There is a family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom.

Description

The Crook's front door on Sheep Street opens into an entrance hall, with flagstone flooring, which leads to:

•Living room: The cosy living room contains a wood burning stove (logs provided) and a plasma TV with DVD player. There is also a DVD and book library, plus a selection of games;

•Kitchen/dining room: The dining room is the heart of the house, with exposed walls, wooden beams, flagstone flooring and a large brick fireplace (no longer used as a fire). There is a large dining table, with seating for 8, and a plasma TV. The new kitchen is bright and airy, with a door leading directly out to the courtyard garden. Equipped to a high standard, the kitchen contains a range cooker with gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a fabulous dual temperature controlled wine fridge and a Nespresso coffee machine (capsules are not provided);

•Downstairs cloakroom: Accessed via the original back door of The Crook, contains a WC and basin;

•Small storage cupboard.

A stairway from the hall leads upstairs to the first floor:

•Bedroom 1: Contains a king size bed and plenty of wardrobe space;

•Bedroom 2: Contains two single beds, which can be joined together to form a super king size bed;

•Bathroom: Refurbished to an exceptional standard, the bathroom contains a bath with overhead shower, a WC and basin. The tiled floor has under floor heating.

From the first floor landing, an old door opens onto the staircase to the second floor:

•Bedroom 3: The staircase opens out directly into a spacious eaves bedroom, with beautiful exposed beams and a super king size bed;

•Bedroom 4: At the top of the stairs, connected to bedroom 3, is a small eaves bedroom. This room contains two small single beds (75cm wide). A particular feature of this room, which makes it ideal for younger children, is that the door from bedroom 3 can be safely shut but left open at the top, so that adults in bedroom 3 can keep an eye on the children.

Back downstairs, a door from the kitchen leads directly outside to a fabulous courtyard garden, which includes a stunning open fireplace (logs provided). Sheltered from the wind and with ample seating and dining space for eight guests, the courtyard is perfect for entertaining, whatever the season. The courtyard is well lit for evening dining.

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.

Golf: There are many golf clubs in and around the North Cotswolds, including:

- Naunton Downs Golf Club, Naunton;

- The Wychwood Golf Club, Lyneham;

- Broadway Golf Club, Broadway;

- Chipping Norton Golf Club, Chipping Norton;
