Around The Property

Parsons Barn 2
Parsons Barn 3


The Bolt Hole is located on Parsons Lane in the beautiful Historic Market Town of Stow on the Wold.

At nearly 800ft, Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns, located on the Roman Fosse Way. Stow on the Wold has a long history and probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill and had a special importance in the English Civil War, the last battle was fought close by in Donnington back in 1646.  St Edward’s Church, was used as a prison for defeated Royalist troops, this was because it was the only lockable building in the town. You can still view some of the damage sustained at this time.

Stow on the Wold is today a buzzing market town filled with artisan shops, boutiques and fine dining restaurants and pubs and the perfect position to come and explore the Cotswolds and all it has to offer. For any information or recommendations on things to do and see during your stay, please contact Country Idyll for personal advice. The nearest train stations are Moreton in Marsh or Kingham a short drive to the property.
