Stow on The Wold

With its  manors and gardens, quaint cottages and quiet backwaters, ancient woodlands and rolling hills, Stow is the quintessential Cotswold town.

Originally known as Stow St Edward or Edwardstow, after the town’s Patron Saint Edward, Stow-on-the-Wold is an old Cotswold town  around 800 feet above sea level and nestled amongst beautiful Gloucestershire hills.

The highest town in the Cotswolds and situated at the crossroads of several major roads, including the Roman Fosse Way, Stow is said to have originated as an Iron Age fort with its defensive position on a hill.
