Dear Jane, Many thanks for your useful and balanced feedback. The oven is definitely on our list for early replacement once the Cottage is unoccupied. The road noise is not an issue for most of the year when guests are mainly inside, but with the...More

About the neighbourhood
Stow-on-the-Wold is different from most Cotswold towns in that it is built around a Market Square which is ideal for wandering around the antique, gift and clothes shops, restaurants, tea shops, pubs (some with local beers).

St Edward's Hall in the Square regularly hosts events such as craft & antique fairs.

There are traditional independent shops such as a bakery, butcher, delicatessens and my personal favourite - the Cotswold Chocolate Shop where you can watch chocolate being made. There is also a late shop in the square and a 24-hour supermarket just on the outskirts.
