Visitors flock to Stow-on-the-Wold for more reasons than Market Square’s farmer’s market despite the town’s terrible weather. Nearby attractions and at least ten cosy cottages make Stow-on-the-Wold an exciting place for a tour down memory lane.
St. Edward’s Church
The Parish Church of St. Edward is believed to have been built in the 13th century, and its Norman Stonework with medieval origins, with later Victorian renovations, left a beautiful heritage building. Built between two yew trees, the entrance to the church is unique, and Yew trees have quite the reputation themselves with an ability to regenerate from dead trees.
The Cricket Museum in Sheep Street is a highlight for sports fans with cricket artefacts and information about all-time cricket stars. Andy Collier is the owner of the museum and has collected cricket memorabilia for an interesting exhibition.
The town boasts an 18 hole, 71 par golf course, Naunton Downs, lying between Soth-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Waters. But there are also The Wychwood Golf Club, Burford Golf Club, Shipton Golf Course, and Tony Valentine Golf Centre. So, more than enough for golf enthusiasts to spend a week playing golf in a different location every day.
A stop at antique shops is an interesting experience for visitors, though collectors need a thick wallet to purchase the older artefacts in Stow-on-the-Wold’s shops. But there are also newer items for interior decorating. These shops are the best place to buy cupboards with style to give character to your home.
A village at the junction of eight roads is a sure reason for established pubs, and one can imagine that buying and selling 20,000 sheep would leave many patrons thirsty for a pint.
And while in town, there are the splendid tea shops, known for their teas, coffees, hospitality, and delicious cakes and biscuits. Please find all the information on our site.
