Sheep on Sheep Street – Gloucestershire

Photo 1 of

In the heart of beautiful Stow-on-the-Wold, the Sheep is a fine example of Brakspear’s elegantly updated inns. With 22 homely bedrooms it now manages to be a traditional, warm and hearty inn yet with a fresh and contemporary feel. Like most of the buildings in Stow, the inn dates back to the 17th century, while the cool blue and green tones of its refurbishment lend a welcome splash of colour, freshness and modernity. Nowadays the Sheep draws in guests from near and far and it’s easy to see why: there’s an immediately open atmosphere that, with the soft lighting, ensures relaxed dining for parties large or small, plus a view onto the open kitchen and wood-burning oven. The Sheep also ticks boxes in summer, with a suntrap outdoor dining area built around a feature fireplace. Here’s a rural home-from-home that will soften even the hardest of city-dwelling hearts.
