Old Stocks Inn | COTSWOLD

 

In the heart of Stow there’s beautiful little square, where you’ll find this little gem – The Old Stocks Inn. This adorable little Inn has a real modern, boutique feel but with a sprinkle of traditional charm as the building dates back to 17th century.

 Within the Inn there’s 16 boutique rooms, a restaurant, a bar and a cafe, so even if you’re not staying it’s great for food or even a brew if you’re in the area.

    ROOM  All of the 16 rooms are different in their own way, which is really nice – especially if you visit more than once. Both times we’ve been we have chosen the ‘House Rooms’, they’re super cosy, modern and quirky.

 On our most recent stay we were lucky enough to have room 12 which had a freestanding bath which was such a nice feature to the room. The bed was really big and super comfy with some beautiful additional features – including  Tori Murphy  cushions.

 With this room, we didn’t get a shower and the sink was within the room space – but we didn’t mind as we enjoyed having the free standing bath as a replacement.

    RESTAURANT  Both times we’ve been, we have eaten in the restaurant – it’s one of those you can rely on for some great, locally sourced food! Head chef, Wayne Sullivan was also last years Masterchef semi-finalist, which you may have seen.. We went for a drink in the bar before hand, which is visually pleasing and has a brilliant selection of great beverages.. In the restaurant we shared a bottle of  William Chase rose, a main course and pudding each which came to around £75..

    BREAKFAST  A huge table is filled with your breakfast dreams; cereal, pastries, hams, juices and even ingredients to make yourself a Bloody Mary.. Name the classics – they will probably have it. You also get your tea’s and coffee’s and an offering of hot food. I went for an avocado & bacon dish and Luke went for a hugeAMONGUS muffin with salmon & egg.

 After breakfast and full bellies, we headed back up to our room to collect our bags to check out. On checkout they are sweet enough to allow you to pop through to the cafe and grab a complimentary brew for your journey home. Nice huh?     THINGS TO DO  Both times we’ve visited Stow on the Wold, we’ve always taken a long walk around, both day and night. It’s just stunning and absolutely brimming with history..
