Description from manager

This 19th century cottage is stationed in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire and can sleep seven people in four bedrooms.Pike Cottage is a 19th century cottage stationed in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. The property is arranged over three floors, and according to local history, was an old tollhouse for the Fosse Way turnpike. It has a slightly quirky structure which lays testament to its history, for example the old arch gate in Cotswold stone features a guide to the town. Some of its original features have been preserved for that authentic cottage feel such as the beams, the doors and fireplace. The property opens up to a large living room with a woodburning stove, fitted kitchen and dining area. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and WC. The staircase leads up to a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with bath, and shower over the bath, basin and WC, a twin bedroom can be accessed via a steep set of stairs. Also on this floor is a single room which has a pull out truckle bed, available on request. On the second floor you will find a king-size bedroom with an en suite shower room and basin. Outside has a small paved garden with an extensive landscaped enclosure, full of plants, flowers and shrubbery. Pike Cottage is the ideal property for families and friends as it has easy access into the local shops and pubs, while surrounded by a magnificent countryside.

Region: Visitors to the Cotswolds have long treasured memories of charming towns and villages built from the famous honey-coloured stone, it now boasts a thriving community of contemporary artists working from studios and shops throughout the area.

Town: 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.
