The Cotswolds

Famous for quintessentially English market towns and villages built from honey-coloured stone, the Cotswolds are a range of gently rolling hills and the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales making them a perfect base for keen walkers and cyclists.

You’ll find some of the world’s most famous – and beautiful gardens in the Cotswolds, as well as wildlife parks, castles and stately homes and some of the finest historic buildings and churches in the country.
The Cotswolds are about 25 miles across and 90 miles long, cross six English counties and stretch from just south of historic Stratford-upon-Avon to beautiful Bath. During the Middle Ages the area became prosperous from the lucrative wool trade which is why you’ll find so many beautiful churches and manor houses.

With thousands of miles of footpaths and bridleways, dog friendly attractions and places to stay, stunning views, charming villages and year round events and places to visit, isn’t it time you put the Cotswolds at the top of you ‘must-see’ places to visit in 2017.
