The property

Little Acorns is an enchanting Grade II listed property which sleeps four guests, in two elegant bedrooms, with a modern family bathroom. Finished to a high standard, this stunning Cotswold stone property has tasteful contemporary décor and modern facilities such as wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well-equipped galley-style kitchen. The stylish furnishings are complemented by wonderful character features including exposed wooden beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a stone fireplace complete with wood burning stove. There is a cosy roof terrace at the rear, and free on-street parking is available close to the property. Little Acorns is located in the heart of the bustling market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the larger towns of the Cotswolds. Well-known for its range of shops, country inns and fine dining eateries, Stow also plays host to the Farmers' Market which takes place every second Thursday of the month, showcasing fantastic local produce. The impressive market square, Stow’s main feature, is steeped in history and used to host the annual sheep fairs during the height of the Cotswold wool industry. Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns and is surrounded by breathtaking countryside, with numerous footpaths and cycle routes on its doorstep to enjoy. It is also well-placed for visiting the many picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds including Chipping Campden, Burford, Lower Slaughter, Broadway and Bourton-on-the-Water, the latter known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ due to the bridges which cross over the River Windrush. Further afield destinations such as Sudeley Castle, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are within easy reach for day trips. Little Acorns is the perfect choice for a gathering of friends or family who are looking for a relaxing retreat just a stone’s throw from the centre of a vibrant market town. The front door opens into the stylish open plan living/dining area, and the following rooms are on the ground floor: Living/dining room: This beautiful living space blends wonderful character features with contemporary design and contains a Cotswold stone fireplace with wood burning stove, two-seater sofa, two armchairs, Smart TV and a wooden dining table which comfortably seats four; Kitchen: A continuation of the living area, this tastefully decorated galley-style kitchen contains a gas oven with four-ring gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, kettle and toaster. Stairs lead up from the dining area to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: This elegantly presented bedroom has exposed wooden beams and contains a king size bed, two built-in wardrobes, two window seats and a wall mirror; Family bathroom: This bright and airy bathroom provides access to the roof terrace and contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. A door on the first floor landing opens to reveal a second flight of stairs that leads up directly into bedroom 2: Bedroom 2: Flooded with natural light, this cosy bedroom in the eaves contains two single beds, a chest of drawers and a mirror. Accessed via the family bathroom, the secluded roof terrace provides a tranquil spot from which to enjoy the warmer weather.

About the location


Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.

Note: The Stow Horse Fair is held twice a year, on the Thursday closest to 12th May and the Thursday closest to 24th October, this is a traditional fair for people to meet up and trade which dates back to 1476 when its Charter was granted; Stow is very busy for a day or two before and after each fair, and a number of shops, pubs and restaurants are closed. Note: This is an old, Grade II listed property laid out over three floors, with restricted head height on the second floor and some steps between rooms, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility Note: We ask that dogs remain out of the bedrooms and stay off the furniture. Note: An initial basket of logs is provided for the woodburning stove from October to March; further log supplies can be purchased locally.
