Maize is a contemporary studio apartment which sleeps two guests, with a spacious shower room. This cosy retreat has a range of modern facilities, a shared courtyard garden and an allocated parking space, a great feature given its central location. Situated just 300 metres from Stow-on-the-Wold's market square, Maize is perfectly placed for sampling the many popular pubs, tearooms and restaurants on its doorstep.

Maize can be booked as a romantic Cotswold retreat on its own, or as part of a set of four separate holiday studio apartments. For more detail, please visit our one bedroom properties, Barley, Durum and Rye.

Booking & Payment

StayCotswold is a marketing agent and therefore does not own any of the cottages listed on our website. In terms of cleaning and maintenance, the properties within our portfolio are managed by a third party property manager or the property owner – your pre-arrival email will contain confirmation and contact details for the person managing your property. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 8 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 8 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Location Information

Maize is tucked away on a side street in the centre of bustling Stow-on-the-Wold. Overlooked by St Edward's Church, the market square is home to a number of pubs, boutique shops and tearooms, yet retains its old town stocks, ancient cross and narrow alleys as a reminder of the town's history and connections to the wool trade.
For your shopping essentials, there is a mini Co-op in The Square, less than a minutes' walk away, or a Tesco Superstore, less than one mile away.
Stow is well-placed for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Winchcombe, Chipping Campden, Broadway and The Slaughters.

  • The Stow Horse Fair is held twice a year, typically on the Thursday closest to 12th May and the Thursday closest to 24th October, however, we would recommend checking the exact date ahead of placing your booking. This is a traditional fair for gypsies and travelling people to meet up and trade which dates back to 1476 when its Charter was granted. Stow is very busy for a day or two before and after each fair, and a number of shops, pubs and restaurants are closed. Whilst many visitors enjoy the colour and vibrancy associated with the fairs, other visitors prefer to avoid Stow on these dates
