Property Description

Full description

A valuable and well situated compact building plot with detailed planning consent for the erection of a detached one bedroom studio holiday cottage and located within a short walk of the town centre

Location - STOW ON THE WOLD is delightfully situated on the historic Fosse Way (A429) in an elevated position in the heart of the North Cotswold Hills yet is well served by a good road network enabling ease of access to many other important towns and cities including Moreton in Marsh, Stratford upon Avon, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Worcester, Cheltenham, Chipping Norton and Oxford.

The former historic wool town provides a wide range of shopping amenities, including a Tesco superstore, whilst there are a variety of inns and restaurants, leisure facilities and a primary school.
