The Loft in Stow-on-the-Wold

Stow-on-the-wold, Gloucestershire, England


Romance in the rooftops

Escape to the living postcard that is the Cotswolds at this beautiful loft apartment for two in Stow-on-the-Wold. Perfect for relaxing or exploring, this property blends traditional charm – think beams and stonewalls – with everything you want in a modern holiday cottage, including a fab roof terrace.

The Location

In the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the gems of the Cotswolds, the buzz of village life is at your doorstep here. There are plenty of boutique shops and eateries to mooch around, plus multiple fantastic walks start from the front door, which is something you’ll want to take advantage of given the stunning countryside surrounding the town. Day trip options are endless with Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Campden nearby, Oxford only a 50 minute drive away, and historic Stratford-upon-Avon 40 minutes away.

Super easy access via the M40 and M5 means it’s a perfect escape from pretty much anywhere.

  • We had to start with the glam bedroom, complete with claw foot bathtub (underneath a huge skylight) and original oak beams… a treat and a retreat
  • The smart design of the loft with its soft palette of greys and pinks feels like a luxe property in the city, while having the added bonus of being in a storybook setting. There’s a feeling of space even though you’re high up in the roofspace, especially in the lovely sitting room
  • The rooftop terrace off the main living area makes for a wonderful place to begin the day over breakfast on sunny summer mornings with lovely views across the rooftops
  • The loft’s location is unbeatable for enjoying that quaint charm the Cotswolds has come to represent. Historic pubs, fine dining, shops and markets are a stone’s throw away
  • Amanda has added to the whole feel of luxury with touches like 300 plus threadcount sheets, Hypnos mattress and beautiful furniture
  • Spacious and light open plan sitting and dining areas, which in turn open to the roof terrace
  • The views from that terrace are lovely and you’ve ample space to make the most of them
  • A fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar– perfect for nights in
  • Bedroom suite with bath, plus separate WC and vanity sink unit
  • Wifi, Freeview TV and a Bose ipod docking station
  • The Loft is accessed via a courtyard and external metal stairs, making it not suitable for anyone with accessibility issues
  • There is free on-street parking nearby and the courtyard can be used for loading and unloading

Owner Amanda and her partner Cathy divide their time between the Cotswolds and London, allowing them and their four children (and various pets) to enjoy both city and country life. When they saw the Loft for the first time, they just loved its quirkiness and that it’s in the middle of everything and  couldn’t wait to stay there. Amandas says “We made sure it was refurbished to a high standard as we wanted to make sure it is somewhere that we felt comfortable staying in (and we have very high standards)”.

I booked to stay at the Loft for a romantic getaway with my partner. It had everything we could have asked for and more! The place was spotless, very well equipped and much larger than expected. A great deal of thought has clearly gone into the design of the Loft and we loved how luxurious it felt - particulary the roll top bath in the bedroom which was a real treat! Stow is a great place to visit, with lots of charming restaurants and shops.

We wanted somewhere special for our wedding anniversary, and we definitely got that! A gorgeous apartment, beautifully renovated, with every mod con, and a roll top bath in the bedroom! And the BEST location, right in the middle of Stow, a few steps away from all the pubs and restaurants. A perfect romantic getaway.
