Groups from four to 22 can fit into the wide variety of spacious properties, so all manner of holidays are catered for.

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.

Beautiful cottage with great character in fantastic location

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived we absolutely loved this cottage. It has so much charm and character, plus it is very well equipped - all the appliances are new and good quality. The bathroom is great with a really spacious shower and nice bath. It's ideal for a couple or family with young children and although the second bedroom is quite small all the beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room overall. The little courtyard garden is great for having breakfast on a sunny morning. Winchcombe itself is also lovely and the cottage couldn't be better located. There are 3 good pubs and 2 restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk, plus several cafes/delis. The street this cottage is on is so picturesque that I found a postcard with the cottage itself on it. If you enjoy hiking then, again, this cottage is a great choice. There are three or four good walks out of Winchcombe into the surrounding hills (probably more to be honest!) and two of them go right past the front door - One to Belas Knapp long barrow and one past Sudely Castle. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in the Cotswolds - hopefully in winter so we can give the log burner a try!
