A stay in a historic Cotswolds townhouse with complimentary port and handmade shortbread in your room – includes breakfast at The Bell at Stow

The Lowdown

Situated just off the square in the beautiful town of Stow-on-the-Wold,
Stuart House is a 400-year-old, grade-II-listed Cotswolds townhouse.
Offering just eight boutique rooms, each one unique, it’s a cosy,
welcoming place to temporarily call home while you explore one of
England’s most covetable weekender destinations.
Despite its old
world appeal, you can expect to find modern
comforts in your room at Stuart House. Think drench
showers, Nespresso coffee machines, Wi-Fi, iPod docks and flatscreen
TVs. Discovering a little decanter of port and some handmade shortbread
on arrival gives you confidence that they’ve really thought about
providing a great experience for their guests here.
Food lovers
will find independent delis and restaurants in abundance in the distinct
yellow-sandstone-clad neighbouring Cotswolds towns – Moreton-in-Marsh,
Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water – while others will prefer to
get out and about in amongst the rolling fields and fresh air.


Each of the eight boutique rooms at Stuart House is
unique; while their cosy feel and countryside-chic style is something
they have in common. Colour schemes tend to be neutral, with pieces of
revamped furniture and patterned fabrics adding interest. Drench
showers, fluffy towels, and complimentary port and handmade shortbread
add lovely finishing touches.


Stuart House is a rooms-only townhouse, we’ve included breakfast at its
sister establishment, The Bell at Stow, with our offer. Just a short
walk away, it’s also worth the wander for lunch and dinner. With fresh,
quality ingredients, locally sourced in so far as possible, the specials
board often features nets full of fresh fish and seafood. Flagstone
floors, exposed beams and cosy log fires make it difficult to tear
yourself away.


Rubbing shoulders with
boutiques, antique emporiums and teashops, Stuart House sits just off
the square in the cobble-stoned Cotswolds town of Stow-on-the-Wold.
Venture out to the other sandstone-built towns of the region – like
Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh – to find a unique collection of
independent delis and places to eat, or pull on your wellies for a stomp
through some of England’s most beautiful countryside. Buses do operate
in the local area but they’re infrequent, so whilst Stow is easy to
reach by train and then taxi, we recommend travelling by car if you want
to explore the local Cotswolds towns and villages

A gem of a Boutique Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed at the Stuart House for one night as part of a Secret Escapes deal. Greeted upon our arrival by Caroline, who introduced us to the house and showed us to our bedroom. The bedroom was at the rear of the house overlooking a small courtyard. The bedroom was well appointed with a modern en suite and a large comfortable bed. Coffee & tea making facilities and a complimentary port and fudge. A lovely touch which all made for a most enjoyable stay at the hotel. Caroline is to be complimented on her friendly, warm approach to guests at a lovely old building. We will most definitely return to Stuart House and the Bell Inn in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Easter weekend away
Reviewed 2 months ago

We stayed at Stuart House over the Easter bank holiday weekend. You don’t actually check in at Stuart house but at The Bell pub which is a few minutes walk down the road, or you can if your lucky park on the square opposite Stuart house. Our room was lovely, very clean and in a modern boutique style with tea and coffee making facilities. The only downside is that we were upstairs via a steep spiral staircase and that our room was very small. I would recommend staying at Stuart house but on the ground floor where the rooms are larger. Stow on the Wold is lovely with lots of nice restaurants and pubs to eat in and we had a lovely weekend there

Fabulous first stay in the Cotswolds
Reviewed 2 months ago

Fabulous birthday treat rescued by the wonderful Caroline FOH Provided superb accommodation for two lost souls. Probably the cosiest, most comfortable & quietest room that I have ever experienced. Classic accommodation tastefully decorated, lots of goodies:Port/fudge, usual upmarket toiletries & a coffee machine that defies logic. Superbly located adjacent to Market Square. Rooms only with superb breakfast served just down the road at a sister pub.
No question for uswhere to stay in the Cotswold it will be Stuart's House Boutique every time. Fabulous stay, thank you Caroline for the part you played in making it such a wonderful stay

Wonderful Stay

Firstly I would like to thank the wonderful staff at Stuart’s House. They made our stay fantastic. I informed them that I would be proposing to girlfriend whilst in Stow and they made sure the room was perfect. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very quiet. The check in and out process was simple. The rooms are equipped with all the amenities you need. We will definitely return!
