Stow-on-the-Wold

Stow-on-the-Wold is small market town in the north Cotswolds. It is, together with nearby Moreton- in- Marsh, one of the better known Cotswolds towns in this enchanting area of England and was in fact the scene of the last battle in the English Civil War in 1646.

Stow-on-the-Wold sits at the junction of several roads, atop a hill; thereby providing easy access to all corners of this lovely region. The town centre is focused on the large market square, testament to its former importance, surrounded by historic Cotswolds houses and a number of enchanting little streets leading off.

An ancient cross stands at one end, and the town stocks sit beneath an elm tree at the other end. Stow was famous for its large annual sheep fairs and, when the Cotswold wool industry was at its height, upwards of 20,000 sheep could be sold in a single day.

There are many art galleries, antique shops and craft shops in the town. Famous gardens located within 20 minutes’ drive of Stow include Snowshill Manor, Hidcote Manor, Bourton House, Hidcote Manor, Sezincote, Batdford Arboretum and Kaftsgate Court.

In addition ancient historical sites located close by include Chedworth Roman Villa and Rollright Stone Circle. Broadway Tower, just 15 minutes away, offers spectacular views of the Cotswolds.

Stow is also an ideal base for some excellent walks in the Cotswolds countryside, with Chipping Campden, the start point of the famous Cotswold Way, which goes all the way to the city of Bath, just 20 minutes’ drive away.

There no shortage of other outdoor activities here including fishing, golf, horse riding, gliding, ballooning, cycling, and motor sports. Study breaks are also popular, and it is possible to learn a range of ancient and handicraft skills while holidaying in the area, including dry stone walling, pottery and woodcarving.
