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

An impromptu trip between Christmas and new year
Reviewed 2 months ago

We booked The Bell (Stuart House) for a quick get away between Christmas and New year. We chose it due to its great location right in the middle of town. Having visited Stow before we were aware of the town car park which was free by the time we arrived late afternoon. We left the car there and moved it to the close by Bell in the morning. We received a warm welcome at The Bell where you check in and directed to Stuart House a short walk up the road. On arrival our room was very small with a standard sized double bed ( something I should have checked when booking as hubby is 6ft Plus, my fault entirely) The size of the room although very clean was an issue, making it a very warm and sticky night. There was a fan provided, but due to the lack of room in the bedroom, was not really usable due to its very close proximity to the bed. The decanter of port And Nespresso machine were a nice luxury touch, and the bathroom was clean with a fab power shower. The Breakfast which was served up at the Bell was however the highlight, the selection of breakfast was great and very well cooked. Service was attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again, but I would probably give The Bell a try or select my room more carefully. Great price for the area and a hard to beat location.

We stayed at this property for 2 nights in december. The property is in a fantastic location in the main square of the village stow of the wold with plenty of places to eat on your door steps plus some lovely pubs and takeaways too. Parking isnt right by the property but you can make in the village square we parked all weekend and had no problems. The room was a litttle on the small size by the bed was so comfortable we both slept really well and the extra little touches like the selections of teas and coffees plus the port and biscuits was a lovely touch and it was all very clean and lovely and warm too. You had to go to a nearby pub for your breakfast a 5 min walk away but we quite enjoyed doing this and the breakfast was lovely too with the staff also very friendly a perfect find would deffo stay again

A Comfortable & Relaxing Stay.

We stayed at Stuart House for three nights, via an offer on Secret Escapes. It consists of 6 rooms, our room, number 4 was at the front and on the first floor accessible by a narrow wooden spiral staircase with about 12 steps.

An Nespresso machine, kettle, a couple of chocolates and shortbread biscuits along with some Port are provided, and were very much appreciated.
Our room was tastefully decorated but small. The only way to watch TV was by sitting or lying on the bed. There are no chairs provided. The bathroom had a large shower. Free wi-fi is provided and worked well.

Breakfast was at The Bell Hotel where a really good choice of food was available. The ‘Full English ‘ was plentiful and very good. Staff were friendly and provided excellent service.

Stuart House is In Digbeth Street just off the Square and is in a prime location for shops, pubs and restaurants. We parked overnight in the Square which had two hours free parking at anytime through the day and was free between 6pm and 9am at many but not all parking bays.

I would not hesitate to stay again and recommend this hotel.

The location is brilliant right in the centre of beautiful Stow. Our room was at the back of the property over looking the courtyard and amazingly quiet in a busy street. The attention to detail in our room was fab, from the lovely decor to the complementary bottle of port , which went down very well with some lovely cheese from the deli up the road,the Nespresso coffee machine was amazing.
The shower was amazing and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Fab stay would definitely stay at Stuart House again when in the area.

Lovely one night stay

We stayed one night at Stuart House as we were visiting for a family wedding at Hyde House. The lady at reception gave us a very warm welcome, we arrived early but were delighted to be told our room was ready early, so we could drop of our things before the wedding. We were in room no. 6, which was lovely and spacious with a ensuite bathroom. The room so clean and came with complimentary port, biscuits and Nespresso coffee - which was a lovely touch. If we visit Stow again we would definitely stay there again.
