Stow on the Wold Hotels
STOW LODGE HOTEL
Stow Lodge Hotel is situated in the heart of the Cotswolds in
the historic hill top town of Stow-on-the-Wold, overlooking the market square with its many interesting galleries and shops. One of the hotels major features is its picturesque gardens that during the spring and summer months are full of vibrant colours and wonderful fragrances, where guests can sit out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Stow Lodge is one of only a few hotels in the Cotswolds that is still family owned and run, having been in the same family ownership for over 5o years. Sadly Mr and Mrs Jux are no longer with us, but their daughter Val Hartley and her husband Dave with their two sons Chris and Steve and their wives Amanda and Nicky are all involved in the day to day running of the Hotel. With help from the friendly local staff the hotel offers a very homely style of service where guests can relax and unwind in total comfort.
The hotel was originally built in the mid 1700’s as the rectory, as the rector at the time required a larger residence. The hotel has been tastefully modernised over the years but retains much of its old world charm; crackling log fires in the bar and lounge during those cooler months, a false bookcase remaining in the lounge that once concealed a spiral staircase leading to a secret room and not to mention the tunnels leading off from the cellar, that are said to be older than the hotel itself.
All Bedrooms are en-suite and have colour television, beverage making facilities, hairdryer, direct dial telephone, electric fan and radio.
Several rooms have twin beds that can be zip linked together to make a super king size double bed. We also have three double bedded rooms with king size beds including one with a four poster bed. All bedrooms are situated in the main hotel or hotel coach house which is situated approximately 25 metres behind the hotel. The bedrooms are of very similar quality.
A Chalet Suite is situated in the hotel grounds overlooking the garden.
Room Rate Guide for Double Room Mid Week:- Low Season from £91.00 to High Season £135.00.

Bruern Cottages in the Heart of the Cotswolds (Sleeping 2 to 10)
The 12 cottages were converted from the Victorian stable yard and outbuildings of Bruern Abbey, a handsome 18th century Baroque country house. Bruern Abbey was bought in 1945 by the late Michael Astor, a writer and Member of Parliament. Judy Astor, Michael's widow, began converting the cottages in 1992, bringing to the task thoughtfulness, imagination and a passion for design. In the interiors, in the gardens and in the very way Bruern is run, nothing has been done without the guest’s experience and point of view in mind.
Bruern Holiday Cottages have been national winner of the English Tourism Council's Excellence in England Gold and Silver Awards for Self-Catering Holidays. They are luxurious, stylish and well equipped, with open fires and four poster beds as well as state-of-the-art bathrooms and kitchens. They sleep two to ten.

There is also a special play area for children with a mini-playground, two-storey Wendy house and a heated play cabin with dressing up clothes, toys, art materials and fantastic retro pedal cars and tractors.
Bruern's central location makes it an excellent base for exploring The Cotswolds - Oxford is half an hour away, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Shakespeare National Theatre under an hour, and Cheltenham (racing and the annual Literary Festival) much the same.

at the heart of local life -
the king’s head inn at bledington
It’s a genuine pleasure to walk into The King’s Head Inn at Bledington. There’s no need to invent a ’theme’ for our remarkable, privately-owned Cotswolds inn, as it dates back to the 16th century, when it was originally built as a cider house.
Open fires welcome you in the winter, as you enjoy a local ale around the bustling bar or perhaps a warming meal. In the spring and summer, you may find that you and your friends spill out onto the famous and gloriously picturesque village green. In short, it’s the classic English pub that you always hope you’ll find, but seldom do.
The Kings Head Inn at Bledington overlooking the village green
The 16th century Kings Head Inn is situated in the tranquil and beautiful village of Bledington only 3 miles from Stow-on-the-Wold. The Inn is set back off the village green and is what everyone would imagine a timeless English Inn to look like. With the brook running through it and the ducks running freely around the Green , the pub looks delightful. Once inside no-one is ever disappointed.
As our guest, you have an excellent choice of accommodation at The King’s Head Inn. On the one hand, it’s possible to stay above the pub in rooms that have a real individuality and charm. If space is more of a consideration, however, we have six further rooms in the courtyard – all of which accommodate king-size beds.
Whichever option suits you best, you can be sure of a comfortable stay in a room that has its own distinct character. Our owner Nicola Orr-Ewing has personally overseen the decoration. We’ve also ensured that every room has its own bathroom, TV, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities and wireless internet access.
Tariff:- from £90.00 per room per night fully inclusive of full English breakfast and VAT.
See website for further information.
Here at The King’s Head, we believe in wholesome, hearty and traditional English food, served with a touch of flair and a spark of imagination.
