The Fleece House is an impressive detached Cotswold stone property which sleeps six guests, in three attractive bedrooms, with three stylish bathrooms. Located alongside one of the alleys which would have once channelled the many sheep to market, this beautiful property has been finished in a country-contemporary style and features a cosy wood burning stove, Smart TV, wireless internet access and a well-equipped kitchen complete with bow window. To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard garden, and allocated off-street parking is available for two cars.


The Fleece House is situated on a quiet side street in the much loved market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. Enjoying the best of both worlds, the location affords the property the peace and tranquillity regularly associated with the rural Cotswolds, yet with the highly prized trait of being just a short walk from the bustling market square with its array of boutique shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants. Overlooked by St Edward’s Church, the picturesque market square retains its old town stocks, medieval cross and narrow alleys, or “tures”, which wind their way from the surrounding streets into the square. The town boasts its own rich history and is known for its important role in the English Civil War as the location of the Battle of Stow in 1646.

Stow is perfectly positioned for exploring the glorious Cotswold countryside, with many walking trails and cycle routes on its doorstep including footpaths to The Oddingtons, Broadwell and Lower Slaughter, all home to country pubs. Stow is also well-placed for visiting the many popular villages and towns of the North Cotswolds such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden and Chipping Norton, the latter being close to the highly acclaimed Soho Farmhouse members’ club. Further afield destinations such as Sudeley Castle, Cheltenham, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are also within easy reach for day trips.
