Honey Cottage is a delightful, period holiday cottage that is perfectly located in the heart of the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. It is an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds and also suitable for those who do not want to use the car with everything on your doorstep including great restaurants, pubs, art galleries, coffee houses, tea rooms and interesting shops. You can enjoy wonderful walks to pretty nearby Cotswolds villages including The Slaughters, Broadwell, Oddington, Bleddington and even Bourton-on-the-Water - all providing somewhere to have a drink or a meal at the other end!
With a romantic double bedroom and a pretty twin room, Honey Cottage is ideal for couples looking for a romantic break away or those wanting to spend a holiday exploring the many places of interest and attractions that the Cotswolds has to offer. Its pretty little courtyard provides the perfect place for a glass of wine on a sunny evening and the inglenook fireplace with log burner creates a wonderful cosy atmosphere on those more chilly nights, making it ideal all year around.
Honey Cottage dates back to around 1650, and still retains many of its wonderful original features, including the original Cotswolds stone floor, inglenook fireplace and winding stone staircase. These features have been enhanced by the use of lovely traditional fabrics, antique pine furniture and crisp linens to provide a cosy and relaxing atmosphere.
Stow-on-the-Wold is perfectly situated for exploring the Cotswolds, with popular towns and villages such as Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh (with its weekly market selling local produce), Chipping Norton, Broadway and Burford just a short drive away. Oxford, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon are also within easy driving distance (a pleasant thirty minutes to one hour drive) and you can even enjoy a day trip to the Roman town of Bath (around one and a half hours), making this an ideal place to base yourself.
The Cotswolds is a beautiful part of England that offers numerous attractions and places of interest including: National Trust properties and gardens such as Snowshill and Hidcote Manor; quintessential English villages; Steam Train railway at Toddington; museums; wildlife parks; Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park and Blenheim Palace to name just a few. With its stunning rolling countryside, pretty villages and honey-coloured stone buildings, it is hardly any wonder it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and loved by many who return time and time again.
