Superb house in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Old Brewery House is full of character, very spacious and well equipped. All the bedrooms are a good size with great views; the bathrooms were clean with powerful showers.

Andrew was very friendly and helpful and the beer was well received by our party.

We would definitely recommend the house for a holiday.

huge house in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't have been more perfect for our family gathering. The rooms were all a great size, with plenty of space for everyone, including 4 young kids. (3yrs to 8 yrs). The property was quirky with lots of character and a gorgeous cozy log burner. The kitchen was really well stocked, with more pans, crockery and cutlery than you could possibly use. Everything in the house was well made and sturdy, perfect for the young children in our party. The lake, peacocks, black swans, ducks and views made it even more special and Stow was minutes away. Andrew, the property manager was very helpful with his local knowledge. Pubs and outings were all organised before we even arrived. Cake was also on the table for our arrival and was most welcome! (Thank you Andrew).

We booked the weekend here for my fathers 70th birthday. Every single one of us loved the place and would return again.

Car: recommended

A rural hideaway close to some of the Cotswolds most delightful towns & attractions! The setting & architecture of Old Brewery House along with the buildings surrounding it are quintessentially Cotswolds.

The location is unique, right in the heart of Donnington Brewery, whose buildings date back as far as the 12th Century. In 1827 it was bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery in 1865. It remains a working brewery today & although running full time, has very little impact on the house or its occupants. Donnington Brewery is not open to the public. However, beer is available for purchase!

Less than 2 miles from Stow on the Wold & Moreton in Marsh.

Approximately 7 miles to Bourton on the Water.

Chipping Norton, Chipping Campden and Broadway are all less than 20 minutes drive. Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham, Warwick and Tewkesbury are a little over half an hour away by car.

We can recommend including some great pubs, great local walks, local attractions the city of Oxford or Cheltenham are only half an hour away plus quintessential Cotswold towns like Burford and Moreton in Marsh are only a few miles away. Or we can help with beauty treatments and massage therapy at Daylesford (Organic Farm) or clay pigeon shooting locally or we can provide catering via an excellent local catering company that can come out and cook at the house.

Further afield villages built with the traditional honey coloured Cotswold limestone are within easy reach. Broadway Tower on the edge of the Cotswolds has views of 16 counties, so they say. Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Stratford on Avon or Snowshill Manor are all less than 45 minutes.

Great centre for discovering this most attractive part of England, with its sleepy stone villages and interesting market towns. Also good for walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists, theatre/opera goers and those interested in historical buildings. Close to Bourton on the Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Chipping Norton and within 45 mins drive of Oxford, Stratford on Avon and Cheltenham.

A particularly good location for walkers, cyclists and National Trust lovers. Also great for horse racing, with courses at Cheltenham, Stratford and Warwick all less than 45 mins away. Theatre goers are spoilt for choice with the Stratford memorial theatre, Cheltenham Playhouse and Oxford Playhouse easily available, while the Longborough Festival Summer Opera is a short walk away. Sports centres and swimming pools are available at Chipping Campden and Chipping Norton and there are riding stables and fishing lakes locally. For water sports, the Cotswold Water Park is less than an hour away.
