Countryside meets culture, in one fell swoop, it offers the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and the English countryside at its A game.

Stow on the Wold

This is perhaps one of the better known small towns of the Cotswolds. Particularly if you love antique shopping. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in charm and variety, and there is plenty to see and do. Foodies can get their fix with the fantastic choice of restaurants, bistros, gastro pubs and tearooms. Plus there’s a Farmers Market every second Thursday of each month.
