Explore The Cotswolds


Nestled in the heart of Stow-on-the-Wold, Parson's Barn is a recently refurbished grade II listed cottage that really stands out from the crowd. Parson’s Barn is luxurious, but not stuffy. We’re passionate about what we do and we have fun doing it. The Bolt Hole is located on the junction of Parson's Corner and the High Street, 137 steps from the front door of The Old Stocks Inn.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow sits at a crossroads on top of an 800-foot hill – a rather breezy location that inspired the 18th-century couplet “Stow on the Wold, where the wind blows cold”, which is etched on the walls of St Edward’s Hall in the town centre.

The Cotswolds is located in South Central England and spans 790 glorious square miles across Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The region’s most iconic landmark is of course the rolling Cotswolds Hills, but it’s also famed for its picturesque villages, river valleys, beech woods and lush green meadows.

Stow’s vast Market Square is a hive of activity surrounded by Cotswold town houses, shops, cafes and tea rooms. It’s also an important part of the town’s history, as it played host to Stow’s famous sheep fairs, where as many as 20,000 sheep changed hands at any one time!
