Winter in the Cotswolds
Welcome to the White Hart Hotel, set in the historic Cotswold market town of Stow on the Wold. Winter is one of the best times to visit the Cotswolds, and Stow on the Wold is at the very heart of this area of outstanding natural beauty. With its central location, Stow on the Wold is the ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds, and its many charming towns and villages.
We have five stylish letting bedrooms, a cozy bar and a stunning restaurant, and look forward to welcoming you to our family run hotel.
Staying with us
If you are intending to stay overnight, there are five rooms to choose from, ranging from the stunning “Stag”, with a free standing bath in the bedroom, to the snug “Fallow”. All rooms have been recently re-furbished, blending ancient stone and woodwork, with contemporary style and sophistication.
Some come back hoping to meet The White Hart Hotel’s non-paying guest, a friendly ghost whom the locals have nicknamed ‘George’. He sometimes manifests as a vertical white light after closing time in the bar, but only rarely appears as a figure – and then apparently for a reason.
It could also fill a whole chapter of a book on architecture. Parts of it date back to the 12th Century, it was a coaching inn from the 14th Century and there are two Tudor priest holes upstairs. The front of the building is relatively recent – merely Georgian!
There is a front bar which is popular with locals, a small side lounge which visitors find irresistible and a large back bar, which includes the oldest part of the building. The White Hart also offers a large restaurant and an extensive al-fresco dining area, with an extensive, locally sourced menu served throughout the hotel.
