Angel Cottage is a beautiful, Grade II listed Cotswold stone cottage, believed to originally date back to the 17th century. The cottage is located in the heart of the famous market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, close to all the restaurants, pubs and antique shops, yet set in a very peaceful and private courtyard. Stow itself is in the heart of the North Cotswolds, with many beautiful countryside walks straight from the town, and ideally located for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.
This traditional cottage has many character features, including large oak beams and exposed Cotswold stone walls. The owner has recently refurbished the cottage, with the traditional character of the cottage complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen.

Located in the north Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is one of the principal market towns in the region. The main feature of the town is the historic market square which used to play host to the annual sheep fairs where, at the height of the Cotswold wool industry, up to 20,000 sheep were sold at one time.
The market square is steeped in history and has two features which date back to the medieval period. At one end of the square there is the medieval cross which was erected to urge traders to carry out fair business under the eyes of God, and at the far end stand the town stocks which are found in the shadows of the old elm tree.
Originally known as Edwardstow or Stow St Edward after the town's patron saint Edward, the town's church is also named after him. The church is just 100 yards from the town square and is a lovely place for locals and tourists alike to get some peace from the bustling market square. The north door is guarded by two yew trees and is a focal point of the town.
Stow has traditional narrow alleyways, or "tures" as they were once known, which wind their way through the centre of the town. It is these same alleyways that were once used to channel the sheep to the fair.
Another point of interest in the town is the well in Well Lane which is now a Grade II Listed Building. As a result of the rather unique geology of the area, water held in the higher layers of the limestone bursts out of various fissures on the slopes and two do still work as wells now.
Car: Stow is conveniently located at the junction of seven roads, including the A429 (Fosse Way), and is easily accessed by car.
Train: The nearest railway station to Stow is Kingham (approximately 5 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 45 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 73 miles, approximately 90 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 69 miles, approximately 90 minutes drive.
