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

Great location

Stayed here for four nights and had a room in the Stuart House which was in a courtyard and one of two rooms there. The rooms are accessed by a front door on the street. You can leave the car at the Bell or there is street parking further down-we left the car in the square and took our cases in from there-be aware that the walk to the Bell can be some ten minutes and with luggage can be tiring. The room was large enough-the bed is ok and a small bottle of port is in the room. The bath room-the shower is powerful enough but the toilet seat was loose and the seal around the shower was coming away-both of which we mentioned upon leaving. The breakfast at the Bell was good. All in all, we have stayed at better places.

Good location and friendly staff

Room was of very good size and convenient to the town. Modern appointments with very good comfort. Staff at the pub were friendly and helpful. Easy walk to pub for breakfast which had a very good selection included.

Lovely Rooms

We stayed for 2 nights in late July. We had a seamless check in at The Bell. On arriving in the room is was fairly small but was very tasteful and had everything you needed. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean and well stocked with local toiletries. The location was perfect, just slightly down from the main square (close to all shops, pubs and coffee shops).

The Bell pub itself was very nice and the breakfast (and service) was first class. Excellent choice in great surroundings. We would definitely stay again
