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 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.

Fitted to very high standards, lovely personal touches throughout house with everything you needed there. We were made very welcome by owners Tony and Biny. Enjoyed the use of their swimming pool and tennis court through out the week. Great views of the countryside from the patio with a short walk into Stow on the Wold. Weather during stay was very warm and sunny which helped make the holiday complete. Lots to do and see in the area so this is a perfect Base to stay. Intend to return in the future Dave, Wendy and family
