Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Gable Cottage is a pretty 250 year old two bedroom cottage in historic Wraggs Row situated on the ancient Roman Road, the Fosse Way. Its Architectural and historic significance have been recognised by English Heritage by giving it a grade 11 listing With exposed beams, low ceilings, flagstone floors, and gabled bedroom window, it is full of original character and charm but now has all the comforts and conveniences of modern day living, such as central heating, a modern kitchen with AGA and a new contemporary bathroom.

With 2 double bedrooms, Gable Cottage has luxurious accommodation for 4 people. An extra folding bed can be put up in the main bedroom for a 5th person if required. In the modern kitchen, the new AGA makes cooking a real pleasure, as well as radiating a cosy glow 24 hours a day, even in the depths of winter. Of course it is not really necessary for warmth, as the whole cottage is centrally heated yet its comforting warmth will make you feel at home Neither is the AGA strictly necessary for cooking, as the kitchen is fully equipped with a mini electric oven, microwave, and the benifits of a washing machine and a dishwasher. From the lounge a narrow staircase leads up to the two bedrooms on the first floor Don't be concerned if the walls seem to lean at strange angles and the floors seem to slope in every direction, its just the 18th century timbers gently settling in The main bedroom has a comfortable double bed and there is room for an extra single bed if needed. The other bedroom has luxurious twin beds that can be put together as a super-king double if requested in advance

The contemporary bathroom opens off the landing on the first floor with toilet, basin and shower over the bath

A private and sunny sheltered courtyard with garden opens off the kitchen and dining room perfect for summer barbecue.

There is generally parking outside the property for one car on the slip road directly off the main A361 but this at busy times can sometimes be taken There are other public car parks within walking distance The A361 offers easy routes to many Cotswold villages such as Bourton on the Water, Burford, the Slaughters, Northleach and Chipping Campden

Great cottage, just needs better cooking facilities for summer guests

  • 4 of 5

Sweet cottage with tasteful decorating, sunny enclosed garden, comfy beds and great location close to Stow on the Wold's many interesting shops. As some reviewers mentioned, the cottage is close to a busy road but we didn't find this to be a problem in terms of noise. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of plates, glasses, cutlery etc. but with the aga stove off for the summer, it was challenging to cook meals. Effectively we had just a toaster oven with two burners on top (and they're slow burners) to work with, which is not enough if you like to cook as we do. Hopefully the owners can resolve this for summer guests. Otherwise the place was lovely and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful stay and cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and her two teenage daughters stayed a couple of weeks ago at Gable Cottage. We had a great stay. The arrangement of the cottage's facilities were excellant in all aspects. The AGA was still on, but we found this no impediment and actually very handy for early morning comfort. We merely opened the windows in the evenings, when we returned, to equalize the temperature, and this worked quite well. The kitchen was immaculate. We found the garden quite pretty and the outdoor furniture very good and handy, we used it every evening. We ate all of our meals out except breakfast, so we didn't use the kitchen except for the coffee maker and some of the knives and forks, but everything in the kitchen was very well arranged and useful had we needed it. We cook very little when vacationing. The bathing facilities were clean and perfectly functional. We really liked the cottage and enjoyed our stay. We would not say we would change nothing, but we certainly could find nothing that needed any immediate changes. This is a wonderful cottage! The Ashwoods and Greens

Had a wonderful experience staying at Gable Cottage. We were provided with everything we needed. Comfort and relaxation. It was a great base for exploring the Cotswolds with our beloved dog. Restaurants and watering holes all within a minutes walk.
