Stow on the Wold
....a beautiful Cotswolds village

Stow on the Wold is a great base for the Cotswolds.

Stow on the Wold is my favorite Cotswold Village. It's claim to fame is that it is the highest town in The Cotswolds

It also is the meeting point of 8 roads.

It was an important and prosperous market town in medieval times.

It's central location makes it a great base for weekend breaks in England or England vacations.
Stow on the Wold Square

There are plenty of things to do in the Cotswolds nearby well as being a great place to just relax and rejuvenate.

Two other interesting Cotswolds villages are Chipping Campden and Bourton on the Water. If you have a favorite village in the Cotswolds, please share it with us here.

The Old Market Square is actually rectangular shaped and surrounded by shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels.

There are narrow "walled alleys" which were used to direct the sheep toward the marketplace.
