Teagles Cottage, located in the heart of picturesque Stow-on-the-Wold, has been beautifully renovated to create the perfect retreat for romantic breaks, walking holidays or group get-togethers. This traditional Cotswold stone cottage is ideally located within walking distance of restaurants, shops, galleries and tea rooms. It is also a perfect base for treks into the surrounding countryside. With its stylish interior, Teagles Cottage sleeps 7 guests across 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin, and 1 single), with one en-suite bathroom, one family bathroom, and a downstairs WC, and features a cosy log fire, private parking, and pretty courtyard for outside relaxation and entertaining.
Family events are welcome at the property, but it is our policy not to take bookings for single sex group celebrations, which includes Stag and Hen nights, or groups where the majority are under 25 years. Also, under no circumstances are additional guests above the maximum capacity allowed at the property, for day visits or overnight stays. If you are found to be in breach of this, you will be asked to leave the property and reported.
Constructed from traditional honey-coloured Cotswold stone dating back around 150 years, we believe the cottage originally started life as a barn. The owners have injected new life and incorporated contemporary features, including a large log burner, eye-catching oak, and nickel stair banisters, and cleverly designed under-eave bedroom wardrobes.
Step through the front door into the bright and airy hallway – a great place to hang coats, take off walking boots, and relax after a day exploring the Cotswolds in this wonderfully welcoming, luxury holiday rental.
So much thought has been put into Teagles Cottage with nothing forgotten, making it a delightful Cotswold holiday home-from-home. From the thoughtful toiletries and chest of family games to the fully equipped kitchen and fantastic log burner it’s not surprising that guests return year after year.
The front door opens into a spacious and well-lit hallway with a pretty dresser, coat hooks, umbrella stand, and polished stone floor – an ideal place to hang your coats, take off your muddy boots and store your umbrella after a country walk. The feature piece of the hallway is the contemporary stylish, yet perfectly in-keeping, oak and nickel banisters.
A dual-flush toilet with a hand basin is neatly situated to the left of the entrance.
From the hall, straight through a set of double oak doors into the:

Good central position with a well equipped house for an extended family or friends to come together to explore the north cotswolds.
Jane - Sept 2021
This beautiful and well kept cottage is very convenient for the local pubs and restaurants in Stow and a great base to explore the Cotswolds.
Bruce - August 2021
This was our second stay at Teagles cottage. The main reason we came back was we knew it was super clean and was in a great location. Again it did not disappoint. If you’re looking for a comfortable stay with great local restaurants this is the place. Loved the welcome wine and cake too. The cottage has everything you will need, it’s very well equipped
Dalbir July 2021
Beautiful and practical cottage for a family stay (well equipped kitchen plus washing machine and dryer) in a central location with a number of good restaurants at your doorstep. We had a wonderful time, thank you!
The cottage is well located to all that Stow has to offer - great food, drink and walks all within easy distance. Check in was super easy and the cottage was perfect for our group. All the rooms are a good size and it was very clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to families and small groups.
An elegant and quintessential market town, Stow-on-the-Wold sits at the highest point in the Cotswolds. One of the best known of the small historic market towns, Stow has a fine selection of chic bistros, charming tea rooms and stylish boutiques and galleries; all within walking distance of the cottage. Stow is also the perfect starting point for walks across the beautiful Cotswold countryside.
The large market square surrounded by mellow stone buildings testifies to Stow's historic importance as a centre of the sheep and wool trade. At one end stands the ancient stone cross and at the other are the old town stocks. Its position as the highest point in the Cotswolds may be a reason why Stow was the site of the last battle of the English Civil War in 1646. A stone's throw from Teagles is The Porch House Hotel, reputed to be the oldest inn in England, dating back to 947 AD. The bar and restaurant are open to non-residents.
If you're here to do some walking through the beautiful Cotswold countryside, towns and villages, there are some guide books available for your use at the cottage or you can visit Cotswolds AONB.org.uk where you can download walks for free.
Teagles Cottage is ideally located for exploring other Cotswold favourite towns and villages. Daylesford Organic Farm, Bourton on the Water and Chipping Campden are less than 15 minutes drive and pretty Burford is just 10 miles away.
