Location Information

Oxbow Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Maugersbury, less than a mile from the more famous Stow-on-the-Wold. Surrounded by glorious countryside, there are many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep including those over to the neighbouring villages of Broadwell and The Oddingtons, all home to popular country pubs. Head into Stow for a look around the independent shops whilst enjoying a coffee from Stow Town Coffee or enjoy dinner at one of our favourite restaurants The Old Butchers or Old Stocks Inn.
For your shopping essentials, there is a mini Co-op in The Square, or a Tesco Superstore located on the Fosse Way, approximately two miles away.
Maugersbury is ideally situated in the North Cotswolds, perfect for exploring the surrounding countryside and nearby towns and villages such as Burford, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway.

  • 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
