Honey Cottage is a charming, period Cotswold stone cottage. It is situated in the heart of Stow, only a minute's walk from the market square with restaurants, pubs, delicatessens and shops.
The cottage itself dates from c1650 and retains many original features. It has been furnished to a high standard, using lovely traditional fabrics, old antique pine furniture and crisp linens:
The front door leads into the welcoming sitting room where an original flagstone floor, wonderful inglenook fireplace with log burning stove and a pretty bay window help to create a charming and relaxing atmosphere.
A stable door leads into a well equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen and breakfast room where there is plenty of room to enjoy cooking and eating. To the rear is a secluded courtyard garden with table, chairs and BBQ, ideal for a drink on a sunny day or alfresco dining.
From the sitting room, a Cotswold stone winding staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a bathroom and a very pretty twin bedroom.
The stairs continue up to a very romantic double bedroom with antique pine furniture and skylight, giving rooftop views across the old town and church. Please note these stairs are steep and some of the doorways have limited headroom in the cottage - typical of an old Cotswolds cottage with lots of character!
