Once known as Stow St Edward, the Cotswolds' highest town is criss-crossed with Roman roads, pretty stone-fronted buildings, independent shops, fine restaurants, historic inns and tranquil country trails.
Famous for its idyllic 12th century market square, 'Edwardstow' was also known throughout Europe as a centre of the wool trade, with as many as 20,000 sheep being sold in one day.
History buffs and culture lovers will also want to explore the site of the last Civil War battle, the popular market place penal stocks and the spectacular medieval church of St Edwards with its spiralling yew tree entrance. Why not stroll around the spectacular gardens of Bourton House and Hidcote Manor too?
Stow-on-the-Wold is also home to some of the Cotswolds' best bakeries, gourmet restaurants and character pubs. The Porch House in Digbeth Street for example, is said to be one of Britain's oldest inns and can be traced back to the 10th century.
A great place to live, a superb location for life
Stow-on-the-Wold enjoys excellent road links to the M4, M5 and M40, giving easy access to London, the Midlands and the South West. Moreton-in-Marsh rail station, approximately five miles away, links the Cotswolds with Hereford and London Paddington.
The wider Cotswolds is well-linked through local bus routes including the 801 to Cheltenham, 855 to Cirencester and 21/22 to Chipping Campden.
