Located in Shipston on Stor, 28 mi from Oxford, The Bower House is Grade II listed building dating from 1731. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant and bar. Paul's welcome to the Bower House was exceptional, I like boutique places and the Bower House did not disappoint! From the second I arrived until I left, nothing was too much trouble, everything was done to accommodate me or anything I required, Paul asked at various points if everything was OK and was there anything he could help with, he was also very knowledgeable about the area, provided information on parking etc and was just generally a fantastic host. I stayed in Room 5 which albeit on the 2nd floor was spacious, bright and had all the amenities you required.
Hops and the Vines offers pet-friendly accommodations in the village of Whichford, 10 minutes' drive from Shipston on Stor, 22 mi from Oxford and 14 mi from Stratford-upon-Avon. The host's were really friendly and helpful. The fresh milk on our arrival was a bonus, as was the cereal and tea and coffee. It is on the door step of so many interesting places. We would be happy to go again.
Between the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon, The Old Kiln House offers luxury accommodations and high-quality breakfasts. Spacious and well-appointed rooms have free parking and WiFi access. My stay at the Old Kiln was excellent. I'd definitely stay again!
Boasting a bar and free WiFi, The Falcon Inn is located in Shipston on Stor. There is a large bar and a 16-seat dining and breakfast area. All rooms are equipped with a private bathroom. The room was comfortable and well equipped. The rooms are perhaps a little old-fashioned but that was in keeping and didn't in any way subtract from staying there. The accommodations are over a pub but it wasn't noisy from the pub though there was some road noise and a whirring extractor fan (which went off when it got late).
Cotswolds Camping at Holycombe is located in Shipston-on-Stour. Some units also have a kitchen equipped with a fridge, an oven, and a stovetop. Love the setup, we were staying in the glamping tent. Everything is very clean and service is great. We got there a bit late but the direction and information given is pretty straight forward so have no problem finding the site. we can park right next to tent so easy for us to get things in and out from the car. The kitchen and toilet is at the other end of the property, around 2-3mins walking so manageable. We didnt order firewood as we thought we dont need it in the summer, however it was raining the whole night and temperature drop quite a bit, luckily they left half of open bag firewood inside the tent for us to use, how thoughtful. Will try to go back again and hopefully the weather will be a bit friendly next time
I will admit that I wasn't aware of Shipston until looking for somewhere to stay for a short break in the Cotswolds. But it is a nice historical town with a very pleasant old town centre. It is very well located for exploring the Cotswolds;-not far/main road connections to Stratford Upon Avon, Moreton in Marsh, Stow on the Wold. And a good, simple B-road connection to Chipping Campden which is a stunningly beautiful place to visit. And then not far from Chipping Campden is Broadway, another lovely Cotswold village with fabulous views from Broadway tower and it also now has a station on the Gloucester Warwickshire steam railway. Shipston also has an incredible number of real ale pubs;-the oldest is the Black Horse in station road, which is a fabulous thatched roof building. So, overall, I would recommend Shipston on Stour as a place to stay whilst exploring the Cotswolds.

My partner and I stayed in Room 11 for a night. The room was simply amazing and was quiet despite the beautiful bay window being over the town square. We travel a lot and found it easy to get additional pillows despite not having someone on permanent reception duty. What we enjoyed most though was the exceptional dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Clearly we loved this hotel and plan to return.

They have the most BEAUTIFUL rooms! The decor, thought and care that went into the interiors / bathroom and how the room was presented... just breathtaking. It was expensive at £170 a night but it is Shipston on Stour, and had recently been refurbished. Honestly so beautiful and magical place to stay. They allowed us to check out late as well at no extra cost and were very accommodating.

Very comfortable room, friendly and welcoming staff/owners. Very nice food, especially breakfast and 3 real ales on tap. Parking spaces available for residents and reasonable price for single traveller. I wasn't aware of Shipston on Stour until looking for accomadation. But a nice historic town and ideally located for exploring the Cotswolds, particularly the Northern areas.

Lovely little self contained flat with separate bedroom. Sofa bed in lounge too. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Toilet paper was amazing quality (unlike most hotels).
