Spend A Holiday In The Cotswolds – We Guarantee
You will Love It!
If you are the type of person who adores city life, the hustle and bustle,
doesn’t mind getting stuck in traffic jams, likes a lot of constant noise, enjoys
the challenge of trying to find somewhere to park, doesn’t mind paying a
fortune in parking charges when you have done so, and has enough money to
pay £1 million or more for a small flat, then it has to be said that a holiday in
the Cotswolds is probably not for you.
However, if you love beautiful countryside, rolling hills (“wolds” means “rolling
hills”), small country villages, farmland, cattle, sheep, lakes and streams,
woodland, thatched cottages, country pubs and small restaurants, and local
markets, then the Cotswolds will suit you to the proverbial “T”.

Life here is so much more relaxed and easy-going. You can wander down small
country lanes without seeing anyone else at all – or if you do it will only be one
of the locals on a bike going to work in the fields or in a small country town.
Some of the little villages are so far off the beaten track that they are
inaccessible by public transport: there just isn’t any.

Wind Down And Relax

This is countryside where you can wind down and relax and look up at the sky
on a sunny day knowing that the only thing that you need to think about is
what time the local pub opens or which restaurant you will visit that evening.
That is, if you do want to go out to eat rather than cooking for yourself in a
small country cottage on the outskirts of nowhere at all.
Trust us, the Cotswolds – above all else – is so utterly peaceful that it is literally
like being in another world. There are some 800 square miles of the Cotswolds
covering the shires (Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire,
Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire), and about four fifths of it is still farmland
making up the largest of the designated 38 Areas Of Outstanding Natural
Beauty in England and Wales. Not for nothing is the Cotswolds the home of the
Prince of Wales at Highgrove House, and Gatcombe Park chosen by the
Princess Royal. Manor houses built by affluent textile merchants, along with
stunning churches, abound.
Where to stay? If you are escaping from one of the big cities such as
Birmingham (not too far away). Manchester, London, Glasgow, or Cardiff, you
will probably want to stay away from Bath and Oxford, and opt for one of the
smaller towns like Cheltenham or Cirencester. However, for the real peace and
quiet of this stunning countryside you would do better to go to somewhere like
Chipping Camden in the north, Moreton-in-Marsh, or stay in a small out of the
way village such as Blockley or Drayton, Little Compton, Snowshill, Broadway,
or the oddly named Lower Oddington.
Things to do in the Cotswolds abound. There is the Cotswold Falconry Centre
at Moreton-in-Marsh, Tewkesbury Abbey at Tewkesbury, the Royal Gardens at
Highgrove House, the Warwickshire Steam Railway, Cotswold Farm Park run by
Adam Henson of BBC Countryfile fame, which he set up to preserve rare
breeds of farm animals, Westonbirt Arboretum (for tree lovers), and much
more. Of course, in the middle of March there is the Cheltenham Festival
which is arguably the premier horse racing event of the year.
Then there is Chavenage House, Snowshill Manor, the Cotswolds Distillery, the
Mechanical Music Museum, the Cotswold Motoring Museum, Hidcote Manor
Garden, Gloucester Cathedral, the Cheltenham Playhouse for theatre lovers,
Bibury Trout Farm, and if you are feeling fit you can walk the Cotswold Way
which is only 100 miles long.

Where to stay? Well there are plenty of hotels in the Cotswolds, although it
has to be said that they are not cheap. You will probably struggle to find a
double room for less than £90 a night. However, there are many alternatives,
such as B&B’s, or better still from many people’s point of view is to book a selfcatering holiday home which lets you come and go as you please. There are
many country cottages, or you could choose a boutique Cotswold apartment
which will cost considerably less than a hotel.
