    “The cottage was perfect for the two of us and our dog lots of outside space for her to explore.”

    Lovely setting and just a short walk into Stow-on-the-Wold with lots of places to visit in easy reach.The cottage was clean and very well equipped with everything you’d need and very modern too.

The property

Oxbow Cottage is a delightful Cotswold stone barn conversion which sleeps 2 guests, in one charming bedroom, with a smart bathroom. Dating back to the early 19th century when oxen used to work the land, the property boasts many character features including beautiful high vaulted ceilings with lovely exposed beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a warming wood burning stove. The character of the property is complemented by modern facilities including wireless internet access, a Smart TV with a DVD player, and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a private garden to the side of the property offering fantastic rural views, and off-street parking for two cars is provided. Oxbow Cottage sits in the idyllic hamlet of Maugersbury, located almost 200ft above the valley bottom below. Surrounded by glorious countryside, there are many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep including those over to the neighbouring villages of Broadwell and The Oddingtons, all home to popular country pubs. The much loved market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is just half a mile away, benefitting from a number of independent shops, restaurants and tearooms, along with the Farmers’ market which takes place every second Thursday of the month, showcasing quality local produce. Stow’s main feature is the historic market square which used to host the annual sheep fairs, and the narrow alleyways, or ‘tures’, would have been used to channel the hundreds of sheep to market. Maugersbury is well-placed for exploring the many picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds including Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and The Slaughters. These picture-postcard settings offer a range of eateries and tourist attractions, and for day trips, further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are easily accessible. Oxbow Cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple or small family who are looking for a relaxing break surrounded by fabulous Cotswold countryside.

About the location


Tewkesbury 5.9 miles; Cirencester 14.7 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 30 miles;

Cheltenham is a town in Gloucestershire and lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds and above the vale of the River Severn. It is known as 'The Western Gateway to the Cotswolds'. This edge-of-the Cotswolds spa town is hard to beat for refined elegance and Regency terraces, annual festivals, Ladies' College and racecourse. Also fortnightly farmers markets, classy shops and restaurants all surrounded by glorious countryside. The town is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. It's also known for Regency buildings, including the Pittville Pump Room, a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town. There's fine art at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium.

Note: We ask that dogs stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. Note: Initial logs for the woodburning stove are provided between October and March; further log supplies can be purchased locally. Note: Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to two additional infants.
