About the property

Cathie's House is a Cotswolds stone house located in a quiet cul-de-sac within an area of oustanding natural beauty. It is a short walk from the centre of the ancient town of Stow-on-the-Wold, the historic market square with the old stocks on the green and an excellent selection of pubs, restaurants and shops.

We have tried to make Cathie's more of a home than just a holiday cottage, somewhere that we ourselves would like to stay if we were visiting the area. Recently re-furbished throughout, Cathie's is a modern Cotswold cottage on the outside, a cosy home from home on the inside, complete with everything that you will need to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.

Cathie's sleeps up to six people in three double bedrooms, has a modern family bathroom, an en-suite to the master bedroom,a fully equipped modern kitchen, a cosy lounge/dining room as well as a large heated conservatory and separate utility room. It is located in a charming private cul-de-sac just a short stroll from the town centre.

The rear garden is well maintained, laid mainly to lawn but with a large decking/seating area perfect for outdoor dining or family barbeques. It is overlooked by a small area of natural woodland.

To the front, Cathie's has a small garden and a driveway for one car but with sufficient guest parking for several vehicles.

Stow-on-the-Wold is a small, picturesque town sitting high up in the Cotswold hills within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is steeped in history and has many popular visitor attractions nearby. The area is very popular with hikers, cyclists and horse-riders alike. There are, within easy reach of Cathie's, countless footpaths and bridleways criss-crossing the beautiful Cotswold countryside and hills.

Cute, Cosy, Clean, with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Katrina's cottage was beautiful, she really has gone above & beyond.! Everything you need to make our long weekend perfect & one to remember. Only a 3 minute at most walk to the centre of Stow on the wold, lots of pubs, little shops & restaurants to choose from. The cottage itself was so clean, spacious & Katrina had left us everything we needed, even down to some milk & cereal for our first morning there. Would highly recommend this property,& will definitely stay again.!

Perfect location to explore the Cotswold

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home just a few minutes easy walk from the charming and historic downtown village of Stow on Wold. I stayed there several days with friends and the five of us found it to be comfortable and convenient. We would walk to the downtown market area once or twice a day and felt that we got to see many of the most heralded Cotswold villages simply because we were so centrally located.

We went out to dinner in Stow a few times, using the recommendations from the owners folder, and were happy with our choices. We also ate in for breakfast and one dinner and found the kitchen to be well equipped. We stayed too busy running around to use the attractive sun room or backyard barbaque area, but if we had had more time, we surely would have as it looked very inviting.

These are owners who will work with you to make your experience at their home a good one. I highly recommend the property.

My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) enjoyed our stay at Cathies house. The location is perfect. Katrina had bread, milk, Coffee and tea ready for our arrival. It was a great touch and we really appreciated it. The house has everything needed for a relaxing stay. The beds where all very comfortable. Thanks again Katrina!

Beautiful house, very clean, had everything we needed for our weekend break.

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely, I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Cotswolds, we had everything we needed for our weekend stay celebrating my partners 40th birthday. The house was so clean, & we felt very comfortable. Katrina has really gone above & beyond with everything you need, down to books, dvds, cd's, blankets, fresh flowers on the table. Great location too, only a 3 minute walk into the centre of Stow On The Wold, where there was quirky shops,& lots of drinking & eating establishments to choose from. Would highly recommend this property.! We definitely will be back if we visit this area again.!
