The Hayloft Apartments have been designed and renovated to a high standard retaining many beautiful original features. A collection of four apartments offering the ultimate flexibility in self-contained accommodation all with modern kitchenette and stylish shower/bathrooms. Each of the four apartments are individually styled including two spacious loft bathrooms, one boasting a roll top bath with far reaching Cotswold views. One of the downstairs apartments has a wet room and low breakfast bar for ease and access.
The apartments each sleep two guests (or groups of eight if rented together) and provide the unique balance of privacy for a romantic break but with the versatility of staying with friends and family or a luxury stay whilst attending local celebrations. Outside, there is a delightful courtyard garden with flowerbeds, planted seasonal pots and patio furniture all providing a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or meal.
The area is popular for its scenic walks and cycling routes, along with sporting/art festivals. It has an abundance of attractions including local popular spots such as Daylesford Organic Farm Shop, Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park and Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water. A great central location for shopping trips to independent boutiques, restaurants, art galleries and coffee shops, making it a truly great place to visit at any time of the year.
Stow is surrounded by pretty villages including Oddington, Broadwell, The Slaughters and Bourton-on-the-Water which are all within walking distance (for keen walkers!).
Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh are approximately ten minutes away by car and the pretty village of Chipping Campden and Burford are twenty minutes. Stratford upon Avon and Cheltenham are around a forty five minute drive making the cottage well placed for the races, literature festivals and cricket. Oxford is approximately one hour and Bath around an hour and a half by car.
