Stownes is located in the heart of the much-loved market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the larger towns of the Cotswolds. This bustling town is well known for its wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as the Farmers' Market which takes place every second Thursday of each month, showcasing fantastic local produce. The market square is steeped in history, with its medieval cross and old town stocks, and when the Cotswold wool industry was at its height, the town used to host the annual sheep fairs.

Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns and is ideally placed for exploring the fabulous Cotswold countryside with many cycle routes and walks on its doorstep, including the Gloucestershire Way walking trail which passes through the Cotswolds on its way from Chepstow Castle to Tewkesbury. Also within easy reach are many other lovely villages and market towns of the North Cotswolds, including Bourton-on-the-Water, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh, with a variety of eateries and activities on offer. Just four miles away, Moreton is home to the Batsford Arboretum, boasting 56 acres of stunning parkland and some of the most incredible tree varieties in England. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Blenheim Palace are also easily accessible for day trips.
