Roseleigh is a fantastic holiday cottage in the very heart of Stow-on-the-Wold, that has been cleverly refurbished and designed to provide self-catering accommodation for nine guests whilst retaining a cosy cottage feel. With an enclosed stone walled garden with patio, off-road parking and five bedrooms, this large property is ideal for gatherings of friends or family.
Stow-on-the-Wold is a popular historic Cotswolds town that has been built around a market square, providing a real heart and atmosphere to the town, which has an ancient cross as a centre piece, beautiful 15th Century parish church, the original town stocks and fascinating old buildings. Little alleyways where sheep were once driven, allow you to explore the town's historic sights and a short stroll along Well Lane leads you to the Roman Wells - a must for history lovers! There are an excellent range of shops selling everything from antiques and gifts to food and wine and you will be spoilt for choice with pubs, restaurants and tea rooms serving delicious local fare.
Sitting in the heart of the Cotswolds, Stow is a superb base from which to explore the areas many attractions including the pretty Cotswolds villages and historic towns of Broadway, Chipping Campden, Burford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. There are also plenty of stately homes and gardens such as Hidcote Manor Gardens, Blenheim Palace, Batsford Arboretum and Snowshill to name just a few!
The area has much to offer walkers with wonderful walks through rolling countryside from the cottage door. Walk (or drive) to the beautiful village of Lower Slaughter, a real honey trap for tourists with the River Eye winding its way through the centre with small stone bridges acting as crossing points. There is a working mill in the village with a museum and gift shop, along with a hotel with riverside terrace where you can gain refreshments. Walk a little further to Bourton-on-the-Water (lovingly referred to as the 'Little Venice of the Cotswolds'), another real tourist trap with shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions including: Birdland Park and Gardens and Cotswold Motoring Museum. In the other direction you can walk to the villages of Bleddington and Oddington which both have good pubs that are perfect for lunch.
