This cosy end-terraced cottage retains much of its original charm and character and is a perfect Cotswolds destination for a family holiday.

Located a short walk from the centre of the popular Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold. The town’s past can be appreciated by looking at the period cottages, traditional buildings and the once used 'stocks' on the green. Stow-on the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold towns standing exposed on 800 feet high Stow Hill at the junction of the Roman Fosse Way. The last battle of the English Civil War took place here in 1646. Known for its association with the once thriving Cotswold wool industry, it is now home to many antique shops, galleries and restaurants. For day trips out of town, visit Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and further afield, Stratford-upon-Avon or Oxford. All packed with popular historical places of interest.

Enter the cottage through the spacious hall with WC. The cosy lounge has ample comfortable seating, woodburner effect electric fire and TV/DVD and Wi-Fi. The kitchen/diner leads from the hall and comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, coffee machine, a dishwasher, and a dining table for four to enjoy a meal together. Upstairs you will find  two bedrooms – the master bedroom with king size bed , the second, a twin. Nearby, is the bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC. Adjoining the house is a utility room that houses a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

The cottage is the end terrace of three positioned away from the road and has a suntrap garden which catches the afternoon sun, perfect for relaxing on the patio enjoying a quiet drink in the afternoon or evening. There is free off road parking for one car by arrangement with the owner prior to arrival..

We enjoyed our week in Sycamore Cottage, despite the rather wet weather. The town of Stow was delightful and the cottage conveniently centrally placed, yet quiet and secluded. A restful week in cosy surroundings. It's now on our list!

This really is s delightful cottage. Very convenient for the town and surrounding Cotswold villages. Parking and access are fine. It's very comfortable, well appointed and roomy, but only for 2 people I feel. If it were 4 people it is big enough but it may depend on how long you spend in or out! Not a fault though as everything is provided and moreRead more, and though it was partly work on this occasion for myself, it was very relaxing and very comfortable and I look forward to returning.

Sycamore Cottage is in a lovely position at the end of a terrace of 3. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything you need. The only criticism we have is that the sofas really need to be replaced.

Nice cottage in a excellent, quiet location, only a short walk to the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold. It included a allocated parking space at a nearby cottage which was great. The host sounded extremely friendly and helpful on the phone and when we arrived at the cottage there was milk, wine and a cake waiting for us which was a lovely touch. The bedsRead more were spotless, the towels fluffy and luxury toiletries in the bathroom/toilet. We had a great week! Hide

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
