The Best Village in England

Stow on the Wold Cotswolds

Cotswold Cottage

by  Karen Fish

Stow on the Wold Cotswolds is a perfect base for a trip to the heart of England.   This lovely wool town is centrally located in the Cotswolds. It is big enough to have plenty of hotels, bed and breakfast establishments, shopping and sights to see....but small enough for lots of "village charm".

The Cotswolds is a beautiful part of England with many stone villages and hamlets to explore. It is one of my favourite places in England. There are many sights to see and Cotswold walks to take. Make your getaway a walking holiday and hike on the paths between the villages.

The landscape is beautiful green rolling hills dotted with limestone brick villages and hamlets....picture perfect!

Stow on the Wold Cotswolds has several hotels. Two favorites are the Wyck Hill House Hotel and The Royalist Hotel. There are plenty of Bed and Breakfast. B&Bs are a great way to get to know English people...and other travellers. Two Bed Breakfast Cotswolds to check out are Cotswolds Garden Tea Room B&B in a 17th century building and Corsham Field Farmhouse which is in the countryside, very close to town.

There are many shops and antique stores for browsing, most centered around the The Square.

My favourite thing to do in the Cotswolds is to explore all the wonderful, charming towns and hamlets in the countryside. One lovely nearby town is Burton on the Water. This is a very popular Cotswolds stop for tour groups so try and go early or late in the day and avoid weekends. There are several tourist sights to see in this Cotswold village. Take the easy walk between the quaint nearby hamlets of Upper Slaughter and Lower Slaughter. These are just a few of the wonderful villages to explore in this great area of England.

Stow on the Wold Cotswolds in the "heart of England" is truly the best place to visit on England vacations.
