Old Brewery House - stunning and unique house in heart of the Cotswolds! *OFFERS

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Sleeps up to 10 in 4 huge bedrooms all en-suite, AGA equivalent, WiFi & Sat TV.

Old Brewery House is a stunning and unique property that sleeps up to 10 persons and is located in the heart of the Cotswolds, just outside Stow-in-the-Wold. Located in a secluded valley, it is part of the privately owned Donnington Brewery. It is a special place, a secret hideaway, yet within minutes of some of the Cotswolds most delightful towns and attractions. The property lends itself perfectly to family holidays and re-unions or group get together. Set over three floors, each room is big enough for a party, has its own bathroom and they all retain their original period features. The garden is truly stunning, with a croquet lawn, a beautiful river running through the valley, a lake teeming with swans, ducks and peacocks! The setting and architecture of Old Brewery House and the buildings that surround it are quintessentially Cotswolds and utterly idyllic.

Old Brewery House is unique in its location, right in the heart of Donnington Brewery, the buildings of which date back as far as the 12th Century when it was a working mill. In 1827 it was bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery there in 1865. It remains a working brewery today and although running full time, has very little impact on the house or its occupants. Donnington Brewery is not open to the public and access to the brewery buildings is understandably prohibited.

There is however plenty of opportunity to enjoy the end results nearby! The Golden Ball in Lower Swell is within walking distance (just over a mile away) but if the return journey is too unappealing, the landlord will return you to Old Brewery House with his complements! Donnington Brewery has a further 14 pubs within the Cotswolds and they are linked by a 62 mile circular walk, the Donnington Way, that takes in some of the most spectacular parts of rural Gloucestershire. Even a small section of the route would offer a rather brilliant challenge for your Stay in the Cotswolds!

A secret hideaway, yet within minutes of some of the Cotswolds most delightful towns and attractions, Old Brewery House, is set over three floors and this fabulous four bedroom family home has been completely renovated during 2011 to make the very best of the large spaces and original features found in this unique property.

The setting and architecture of Old Brewery House and the buildings that surround it are quintessentially Cotswolds and utterly idyllic. Its location is unique, being right in the heart of Donnington Brewery, whose buildings date back as far as the 12th Century. In 1827 it was bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery here in 1865. It remains a working brewery today and although running full time, has very little impact on the house or its occupants. Donnington Brewery is not open to the public and access to the brewery buildings is understandably prohibited. Beer, however, is available, should you desire it and you'll find links to chocolate box pretty Cotswolds inns that are supplied by Donnington Brewery.

Less than 2 miles from Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh and approximately 7 miles to Bourton on the Water. Chipping Norton, Chipping Campden and Broadway are all less than 20 minutes drive. Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham, Warwick and Tewkesbury are a little over half an hour away by car.

We can recommend including some great pubs, great local walks, local attractions the city of Oxford or Cheltenham are only half an hour away plus quintessential Cotswold towns like Burford and Moreton in Marsh are only a few miles away. Or we can help with beauty treatments and massage therapy at Daylesford (Organic Farm) or clay pigeon shooting locally or we can provide catering via an excellent local catering company that can come out and cook at the house.

Architecturally, Stow has many historic buildings around the market square, having risen to prosperity on the back of the wool trade in medieval times. The 15th century St Edwards parish church played a role in the civil war. The old town stocks still stand though not used much in recent years. These days, Stow has many boutique and antique shops to browse around and pubs and restaurants provide a large choice of places to eat.

Further afield villages built with the traditional honey coloured Cotswold limestone are within easy reach. Broadway Tower on the edge of the Cotswolds has views of 16 counties, so they say. Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Stratford on Avon or Snowshill Manor are all less than 45 minutes.

For those interested in walking, there are numerous walks in and around Stow, varying from gentle strolls to extended walks. A map of local walks can be had from the information centre or local shops. Cycles may be hired in Bourton on the Water and are an ideal way to explore the quieter back country lanes and the smaller villages of the Cotswolds, but the hills can be steep!

Cheltenham Festival Week, home of the famous Gold Cup, happens every March. Stow is only 35 minutes from the races.

Location Information: Sitting elegantly in the middle of the world famous Cotswold’s countryside, Stow-on-the-Wold is the quintessential English market town. Stow is a natural and historic meeting place, with a fine selection of 16th century Cotswold stone shops, luxury hotels, chic bistros, inns, elegant manor house hotels and cosy teashops. The combination of rural informality and fine food and drink makes this small market town the ideal destination for a holiday or weekend break. Along with Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-in-the-Water, Stow is one of the best known of the small Cotswold towns. It is the highest point in the Cotswolds, standing on top of an 800 feet hill, and is situated at the meeting place of seven roads, including the Roman Fosse Way, which runs from Exeter to Lincoln in an almost straight line.

Great centre for discovering this most attractive part of England, with its sleepy stone villages and interesting market towns. Also good for walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists, theatre/opera goers and those interested in historical buildings. Close to Bourton on the Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Chipping Norton and within 45 mins drive of Oxford, Stratford on Avon and Cheltenham.

A particularly good location for walkers, cyclists and National Trust lovers. Also great for horse racing, with courses at Cheltenham, Stratford and Warwick all less than 45 mins away. Theatre goers are spoilt for choice with the Stratford memorial theatre, Cheltenham Playhouse and Oxford Playhouse easily available, while the Longborough Festival Summer Opera is a short walk away. Sports centres and swimming pools are available at Chipping Campden and Chipping Norton and there are riding stables and fishing lakes locally. For water sports, the Cotswold Water Park is less than an hour away.
