A stylish period cottage in the heart of vibrant Stow-on-the-Wold - the perfect getaway.

Parson's Barn

Parsons Barn, Parsons Corner, Stow-On-The-Wold, Gloucestershire GL54 1EE 01451 830 666

We say

Just over 100 steps away from the Old Stocks Inn – a place full of character in Stow-on-the-Wold – sits Parson's Barn, a Grade II listed cottage that's recently been refurbished and is really something quite special. Comfortably sleeping 6 adults and 2 small children (you can bring fido too), it's the perfect place for a family holiday – traditional yet luxurious, both spacious and cosy.

Stow is the highest town in the Cotswolds, it sits at a crossroads on top of an 800-foot hill – the barn is nestled right in the heart of it all, just a stone's throw away from the many shops and restaurants that the picturesque area boasts. Inside, there's an open-plan kitchen (the fridge is stocked with a selection of local items) and a comfy lounge complete with bi-folding doors leading out to the patio. The terrace is a sun trap on a warm day and a lovely spot for an al-fresco breakfast or an evening drink. Upstairs, the three contemporary bedrooms are stylishly decorated, splashes of colour here and there. Enjoy a cooked breakfast at the Old Stocks on the first morning of your stay; their restaurant is worth checking out of a lunchtime or evening too, it features a British menu with a twist.

Located within 790 square miles of natural beauty, The Cotswolds are famed for their pretty villages, river valleys and lush green meadows. Get out and about and explore – Chastleton House is close by, as are the Rollright Stones. Beer lovers will be in their element, the Cotswold Brewing Company is just over three miles away. Then back to Parson's Barn, your relaxing bolthole, for some R&R.
