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.
