Barn Cottage is a recently converted 18th century barn in a quiet
private lane close to the market square of Stow-on-the-Wold. Its original use was as an ancilliary building supporting the Old Forge
at the top of the lane, which manufactured ironwork and
horseshoeing. Newly refurbished, decorated and equipped to 5-Star standard, Barn Cottage offers a comfortable, well-situated base from which to explore the Cotswolds and Gloucestershire.
Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the North Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold market towns and has many wonderful views. It is an unspoiled and charming small town once famous for its wool trade, but now better known for its antique shops, art galleries, book and craft shops. The mellow Cotswold stone buildings are a mix of 17th and 18th century origins, giving an atmosphere of a time and pace of life long past.
For those who enjoy walking, there are numerous footpaths and bridleways from the town to explore. The attractions in the area include museums, galleries, historic houses, gardens, wild life parks and farm parks to mention just a few. The well known and beautiful Cotswold villages of Broadway, Chipping Campden and the Slaughters are nearby and the larger towns of Stratford, Cheltenham, Cirencester and Oxford, each offering attractions of their own such as theatres, festivals, horse racing and shopping, are all just a short drive away.
