Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) + large sofa for 5th person

Our 200 year old cottage retains all the quaint charms of days-gone-by, but has all the amenities and comforts of a modern home. It’s a lovely and tranquil retreat in highly sought after Stow-on-the-Wold, one of England’s most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, reachable by car or train. Train station is ten minutes from nearby Moreton in Marsh with bus service to Stow. Train ride is just 1 hour and 20 minutes from London.

Within the village are The Royalist, the oldest inn in England, and St. Edward’s, one of the great wool churches, as well as the Toy and Collectors Museum. Stow has wonderful boutiques and galleries, excellent restaurants and tea rooms, and walking trails through the lovely countryside. Every weekend during any time of the year has something going on in town: antique markets, farmers markets with local produce, etc.

This warmly intimate two bedroom cottage has designer furniture, beautiful original art, antiques and a wood-burning fireplace to keep it cozy. The newly carpeted and painted living room features a 42 inch plasma television, SKY satellite programming and a DVD player. Enjoy music on our CD/Stereo/Digital Radio System while seated on our custom made corner sofa or a wing back armchair and foot stool.

The charming kitchen and dining area has been fully updated with new appliances including a fridge, electric stove, dishwasher and microwave as well as a gourmet’s cookware and utensils. Set the dining table for four with colorful glasses from our crystal cabinet. Washer and dryer on premises.

The master bedroom features a king size bed and a 21 inch LCD flat screen television. Guest bedroom has a double bed. Luxurious linens are provided. The fully modernized bathroom features a separate shower and a large tub for a satisfying and soapy plunge.

Outside the house is a lovely, gated garden with a deck and outdoor furniture for four and ample street parking. A telephone is provided as well as wireless Broadband Internet. Clean, well behaved dogs are welcome by prior arrangement - sorry, no cats. Smoking is not allowed inside this home.

This central location in the Cotswolds is close to the area's other famous villages of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Burford, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water. 25 minutes away are Cirencester, Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have stayed in many rentals and Carters Cottage was one of the nicest places I've stayed. The owners have decorated beautifully and put thoughtfulness and care into what they provide their renters. The best thing is the overall aesthetic. The cottage is adorable... oh, and the beds and linens are fantastic (they were better than at home which is saying a lot). Thank you!

Perfect location for the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carter's Cottage for a week using it as our base for touring the Cotswolds. What a perfect place. The location is fantastic - one street off the main square - within walking distance to restaurants, tea rooms and shops but not on a busy or loud street. The cottage was ideal. Sharif provided us with all the necessary information and treats were left for us. We felt very welcomed and would recommend Carter's Cottage without hesitation! It exceeded our expectations!

Oh my!! What's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Our first impressions: it's a darling little Hobbit house! Upon opening the door, you enter into a very well equipped kitchen, with the surprise of breakfast foods...bread, butter, jam and eggs, along with a chocolate cake! The beds are like sleeping on a cloud, the bathrooms are comfortable with lots of hot water and great water pressure. The washer dryer combo work well. We enjoyed the outside grill also! We'd love to stay in this charming house again!!

Perfect cosy cottage - loved our impromptu few days just off beaten track but close enough to stroll in and enjoy all stow has to offer. Especially lovely for refreshments after cycling back up the hills home! Loved it will hopefully stay again.

Cosy but spacious cottage in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We (me and my husband, plus my sister visiting from abroad) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carters Cottage. It was a great space - a good sized kitchen with large table to eat around; a living room with comfy sofas and armchair; downstairs loo and boot room (which was really warm and extremely helpful for storing our damp coats and brollies!). Upstairs the bathroom had a really good shower as well as a bath, and the two bedrooms were just lovely. The cottage is clearly well cared for, and was a very welcoming place to be (there was even wine and a cake when we arrived!). It was a fantastic base for our short break. We had a good look around Stow, and there are really good walks to other pretty villages nearby. We all agreed that we'd be happy to stay here again.
