Stow on the Wold is the Cotswolds’ highest town and one of the most visited in the Cotswolds. In summer visitors flock to the art galleries and antique shops.
The town sits high on a 750ft hill, along the ancient Roman Fosse Way. The very large market square still features the town’s old wooden stocks, and has a number of shops and attractive houses.
The church features memorials to victims of the Civil War and was used to hold Royalists captive. A carving from the original Saxon church can be found at the back of the church.
Stow on the Wold is ideally located with some of the Cotswolds’ prettiest villages in the surrounding area. The Grapevine Hotel is a 17th century building set in the heart of this famous Cotswold market town.
