Location

Posting House Barn is located in the centre of the popular market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, just steps away from the Market Square and all that Stow has to offer. This vibrant town is renowned for its range of boutique shops, pubs, restaurants and tearooms, as well as the Farmers' Market which takes place every second Thursday of each month, showcasing fantastic local produce. Steeped in history with its medieval cross and old town stocks, the bustling market square is the heart of the community and it is said that during the height of the wool industry, 20,000 sheep were sold here in one day.

As the highest of the Cotswold towns, Stow features on many country walks and cycle routes and rewards visitors with far-reaching rural views. Local footpaths take in the neighbouring villages of Broadwell, Lower Swell and The Oddingtons, all home to popular inns which offer tempting refreshments. Stow is also well-placed for exploring the many towns of the North Cotswolds including Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Burford, and further afield destinations such as Cirencester, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are within easy reach for day trips.
