    “Lovely cosy cottage in an ideal situation for walking into town or exploring the Cotswolds.”

    Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of good places to eat. We did find it very difficult to be unable to recycle as we are used to this. It must be possible to rectify this as the cottage next door did it. Two problems - the freezer was unusable as it was totally frozen up and the window boxes were full of dead plants. Not very welcoming and meant we were unable to take any photos of it!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback following your stay at Primrose Cottage. We're glad you found it comfortable and well equipped but are sorry that there was difficulty in recycling and that there was an issue with the freezer. We will ensure that these matters are rectified and thank you for bringing them to our attention. Property Owner

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

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 neighbouring cottages have right of access through the garden.

Note: This is an old property with character features, including steep stairs and low beams, which is laid out over two floors, and could therefore pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility.

Note: The property’s courtyard garden is enclosed; however, the neighbouring properties have a right of access through this garden, which could result in the gate to the road or the gate to the neighbouring property not being closed properly.

Note: Logs for the woodburning stove are provided under a fair usage policy (there is an honesty box for contributions towards the cost of logs used).

Note: A telephone is provided, with an honesty box for the cost of calls made (no international calls).

Note: Neighbouring property Spinners Cottage can be booked in conjunction with Primrose Cottage.
