Location Information

The Old School House is located on a quiet side street in the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold, one of the best loved Cotswold market towns. Steeped in history, the market square retains its old town stocks and medieval cross, and is overlooked by a number of pubs, shops, restaurants and tearooms.
For your shopping essentials, there is a mini Co-op in The Square, less than a minutes' walk away, or a Tesco Superstore located on the Fosse Way, less than one mile away.
Stow is well-placed for exploring the many scenic towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Winchcombe and Broadway. Check out our best towns and villages in the Cotswolds article for more!

  • 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
