Naunton

The picturesque village of Naunton is peacefully located away from major roads, yet is within six miles of the well known market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water.

Naunton is a delightfully quiet, unspoilt place, spread out along the floor of the Windrush valley, with the River Windrush flowing through the village. The village church, which is dedicated to St Andrew, is largely 15th century, but replaces an older Saxon church on the same site. The church has a handsome Perpendicular tower with pinnacles and gargoyles and the interior has a beautiful carved early 15th century stone pulpit and font.

Bourton-on-the-Water

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water is famous for its picturesque High Street, flanked by long wide greens and the River Windrush that runs through them. The river is crossed by several low, arched stone bridges, which have led to Bourton being called the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Bourton is regularly voted the prettiest village in the Cotswolds.

Despite only being classified as a village, Bourton's status as a major tourist destination means that it has numerous shops, pubs, restaurants, cafes and tourist attractions.

Various long-distance footpaths and local walks start, finish or pass through Bourton, including the Windrush Way and the Heart of England Way, which begins its 100-mile route north in the village.

Stow-on-the-Wold

Sitting elegantly in the middle of the Cotswolds 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.

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.

Stow-on-the-Wold in the 21st century looks quite a lot like Stow-on-the-Wold in the 17th century. It is the hub and service town for a rural community, but has maintained its traditional character. Stow is largely a town of small independent businesses, rather than the large chains that make many towns in England look the same.

Stow has been famous for many years as a centre for the antiques trade and in the last few years clusters of art galleries and fashionable clothing shops have added further character to the town centre.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe.

Food and drink

There are a number of well-regarded pubs and restaurants located a pleasant walk or a short drive away from the property, including:

•The Black Horse Inn, Naunton

•The Hollow Bottom, Guiting Power

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Burford and Chipping Norton containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also many traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the North Cotswolds.
