Things to do

-Museums: The Cotswold Cricket Museum is privately run and located close to the main square in Stow-on-the-Wold. Here, guests can pick up insights on players and the history of the sport. The onsite café is a hidden gem serving tasty cakes and tea. It's open Tuesday through Sunday, and on Bank Holiday Mondays.

-Churches: St. Edwards Church is a parish that dates back to the 11th century. Renovations have taken place throughout the centuries, so today the building is a charming confluence of architectural styles. Visitors to holiday cottages in Stow-on-the-Wold that are so inclined are welcomed to church services, and current information on activities is available through the Stow-on-the-Wold, Condicote and The Swells (scats) UK website.

-Museums: The Park House Toy Collectors' Museum features a privately owned collection of toys predominantly from Victorian and Edwardian times. Bears, dolls, board games and more are displayed in this location at the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold. Open from March through October on Wednesdays through Saturdays, it's simply lovely for a day spent with the family.

-Family attractions: The Cotswolds Farm Park is a favourite with families who’ve taken a holiday home in Stow-on-the-Wold. The working farm offers a full-on interactive experience, with its rare breeds conservation program and seasonal demonstrations like sheep shearing. Kids can experience the touch barn and tractor trailer rides, and there are picnic sites as well. Visitors are encouraged to try the café for cakes, tea and hot food; including sausages made from pigs raised right on the farm.

-Entertainment: The Dragonfly Maze is a great excursion for all ages, located just four miles away in Bourton-on-the-Water – one of the most popular villages in the Cotswolds. Not too long nor too short, the maze provides excellent fun by posing questions which need to be answered before proceeding (but don't worry; they're not too hard!). With an entrance fee of just a few pounds, it's a fantastic day out on a budget.

The barn is beautifully decorated to a high standard, it's warm and very comfortable. It's fully equipped with everything you could need and more. It's clear a lot of thought has gone into this holiday home. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and the owners kindly rearranged the bedroom to fit two extra mattesses in for our children. Marion was friendly and welcoming and even left some Easter treats for our young daughters which was a lovely touch. We enjoyed looking out to the countryside views and had some lovely days out. We would certainly recommend Cider Barn to anyone!
