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 beds were very comfortable, the cottage was warm and there was everything that we needed. The owners made sure that we had everything we required and that we had settled in well; very kind and friendly. The village is peaceful and beautiful, it has a very relaxing atmosphere. The only regret we had is that we could only stay 3 nights.

The cottage was very cosy and warmed up very quickly. Wifi was good. Loved the wine & biscuits left for us, really nice touch, thank you! Be warned if you are over 5"11 as you will have to do a lot of bending down. Overall we loved the cottage and would definitely return!
