About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) + large sofa for 5th person

Our 200 year old cottage retains all the quaint charms of days-gone-by, but has all the amenities and comforts of a modern home. It’s a lovely and tranquil retreat in highly sought after Stow-on-the-Wold, one of England’s most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, reachable by car or train. Train station is ten minutes from nearby Moreton in Marsh with bus service to Stow. Train ride is just 1 hour and 20 minutes from London.

Within the village are The Royalist, the oldest inn in England, and St. Edward’s, one of the great wool churches, as well as the Toy and Collectors Museum. Stow has wonderful boutiques and galleries, excellent restaurants and tea rooms, and walking trails through the lovely countryside. Every weekend during any time of the year has something going on in town: antique markets, farmers markets with local produce, etc.

This warmly intimate two bedroom cottage has designer furniture, beautiful original art, antiques and a wood-burning fireplace to keep it cozy. The newly carpeted and painted living room features a 42 inch plasma television, SKY satellite programming and a DVD player. Enjoy music on our CD/Stereo/Digital Radio System while seated on our custom made corner sofa or a wing back armchair and foot stool.

The charming kitchen and dining area has been fully updated with new appliances including a fridge, electric stove, dishwasher and microwave as well as a gourmet’s cookware and utensils. Set the dining table for four with colorful glasses from our crystal cabinet. Washer and dryer on premises.

The master bedroom features a king size bed and a 21 inch LCD flat screen television. Guest bedroom has a double bed. Luxurious linens are provided. The fully modernized bathroom features a separate shower and a large tub for a satisfying and soapy plunge.

Outside the house is a lovely, gated garden with a deck and outdoor furniture for four and ample street parking. A telephone is provided as well as wireless Broadband Internet. Clean, well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement - sorry, no cats. Smoking is not allowed inside this home.

This central location in the Cotswolds is close to the area's other famous villages of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Burford, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water. 25 minutes away are Cirencester, Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have stayed in many rentals and Carters Cottage was one of the nicest places I've stayed. The owners have decorated beautifully and put thoughtfulness and care into what they provide their renters. The best thing is the overall aesthetic. The cottage is adorable... oh, and the beds and linens are fantastic (they were better than at home which is saying a lot). Thank you!

The Quintessential Cotswold Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Carter’s Cottage in August/September. Since this was our third stay in Stow we knew the area well so it was easy for us to choose a cottage location. On our 2 previous trips we had a car but were no longer willing to drive in England so needed a village with some bus service and accessibility to the train (Moreton-in-Marsh). We love Stow as you can walk in any direction (with the help of a good map) and find yourself in a village with a pub for lunch. One day we took a bus trip to Chipping Campden to see more of the countryside.

The cottage is located on a quiet lane about a 5-minute walk to the center of the square. There are 3 take-out restaurants (fish and chips, Indian and Chinese) located on Park Street a short walk from the cottage. We prefer a traditional British pub instead of those made into gourmet restaurants so went to the Queen’s Head quite often. Lucy’s Tearoom was on the cottage’s recommendation list and it was very good. We also had a nice, reasonably priced full English breakfast at Treebus one morning.

The garden of the cottage is lovely and private. The eat-in kitchen is well-equipped and comfortable. We never did figure out how to operate the oven so used the microwave a lot. It was a nice bonus to have Sky TV so we could watch various British shows that we don’t get in the states. The washer/dryer combination worked well. The bedrooms were separated from each other on the upper level so nice for privacy. My husband would have preferred a harder mattress but I found it perfect. The family bath was great with a nice shower and good water pressure. It was great to have a half bath on the main level. We will definitely choose Carter’s Cottage for our next visit to Stow-on-the-Wold

Wonderful Cottage in Stow

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cottage with my husband and 2 daughters (6 & 4).

The cottage was absolutely perfect for what we needed. We stayed for 4 nights and ate in for 3 of them and had everything we needed to do this.

The cottage is in a perfect location that you can walk to anything in the village and a Tesco is just up the road if you need anything.

Everything worked in the cottage and the fireplace was put to good use.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect location for the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carter's Cottage for a week using it as our base for touring the Cotswolds. What a perfect place. The location is fantastic - one street off the main square - within walking distance to restaurants, tea rooms and shops but not on a busy or loud street. The cottage was ideal. Sharif provided us with all the necessary information and treats were left for us. We felt very welcomed and would recommend Carter's Cottage without hesitation! It exceeded our expectations!

Oh my!! What's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Our first impressions: it's a darling little Hobbit house! Upon opening the door, you enter into a very well equipped kitchen, with the surprise of breakfast foods...bread, butter, jam and eggs, along with a chocolate cake! The beds are like sleeping on a cloud, the bathrooms are comfortable with lots of hot water and great water pressure. The washer dryer combo work well. We enjoyed the outside grill also! We'd love to stay in this charming house again!!
