Introduction

Pre-Arrival

  • Our website has links to local travel services.
  • Our travel directions always include the office telephone number and a mobile telephone number in case guests need any assistance on their journey or help on arrival.
  • Park Farm is less than ½ mile by footpath from Stow-on-the-Wold and about 1 mile by car to the town centre.
  • We are happy to collect guests from Moreton Station (4 miles) or to meet them off a bus in Stow-on-the-Wold.
  • If given a list of items to obtain before guests arrive, we are pleased to get some provisions in readiness.
  • Tesco and Ocado deliver locally.

On Arrival

Visitors are given precise directions to reach their cottage. We endeavour to greet them shortly after their arrival but in cases of arrival very late at night, we greet guests within 24 hours of arrival.

Holiday Cottages

  • There is ample car parking for residents at all the cottages.
  • There is level access from the car parking areas to the cottages in all but Stonewell Cottage, where there is a slope covering a distance of about 10 yards leading up to the front door. In all cases the ground surface consists of medium to fine gravel.
  • Wheelchair access is possible to all cottages though it is recommended that wheelchair guests are accompanied.
  • The areas around the cottages are well lit.
  • Small thresholds lead into the cottages, but otherwise there are no steps or stairs in the single-storey cottages. In Fishers Cottage, a flight of wooden steps leads to the first floor. Fishers Cottage is carpeted throughout the living and bedroom areas. Daisy Bank, Swingletree and The Oxbow have wooden floors, with some rugs, in the living areas and carpeting in the bedrooms. Stonewell has wood flooring throughout the living area and bedrooms with some rugs.
  • There is cushion-floor vinyl in the bathroom of Fishers Cottage and tiled flooring in the bathrooms of Swingletree, Daisy Bank, Stonewell and The Oxbow and the shower rooms of Fishers Cottage and Daisy Bank.
  • The kitchen floors in all cottages are tiled.
  • There is good access to all ground floor beds, though the most accessible are those in Stonewell.

  • Kitchen work surfaces are of standard 90 cm height.
  • Assistance dogs are welcomed and there are good facilities for allowing them exercise.
  • The internal floors are level throughout the cottages.

Grounds and Gardens

  • Each cottage has its own patio area and lawn area.
  • Additionally there is a level, lawn area available to all cottage residents with seating in shaded areas.
  • There is a flight of stone steps with a hand-rail in the garden, though there is a grass ramp as an alternative.
