Map of Stow-on-the-Wold & the Cotswolds
Stow-on-the-Wold is a pretty market town located at the heart of England's Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Cotswold area is the rural England of picture postcards, rolling hills, dry stone walls and pretty villages built of honey coloured stone. But Stow-on-the-Wold is still less than 2 hours from London by car or by train.
Within 30 minutes drive of Stow-on-the-Wold are the attractions of Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace & Regency Cheltenham. The dreaming spires of Oxford are about 40 minutes away and the Georgian splendour of Bath is a little more than 1 hour by car.
