Masters House is one of a row of traditional Cotswold stone buildings, located in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and surrounded by glorious countryside. Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the most famous of the Cotswold market towns, due to its beautiful buildings and large number of antique shops, pubs and restaurants. It is also well placed in the heart of the North Cotswolds and is an ideal location for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many other beautiful towns and villages that are just a short drive away.
Formerly an antiques shop, Masters House has been lovingly converted into a beautiful cottage. It has been furnished and decorated to enhance the period character of the cottage, with modern facilities such as wireless internet access and a well presented kitchen complementing the traditional character.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a cosy courtyard garden and free on street parking is readily available. Masters House is an ideal location for friends, couples or a family, looking for a beautiful cottage in one of the Cotswold's most charming market towns.

Accessibility, health and safety
The property has two floors and some low beams, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
The front door of the property opens onto the street and guests with young children should take particular care to ensure that the children are supervised when the door is opened.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property
Stow Horse Fair
The Stow Horse Fair is held twice a year, on the Thursday closest to 12th May and the Thursday closest to 24th October. This is a traditional fair for gypsies and travelling people to meet up and trade, which dates back to 1476, when its Charter was granted. Stow is very busy for a day or two before and after each fair, and a number of shops, pubs and restaurants are closed. Whilst many visitors enjoy the colour and vibrancy associated with the fairs, other visitors prefer to avoid Stow on these dates.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
