This is the largest area of outstanding natural beauty in England and Wales. Idyllic villages of honey coloured limestone such as Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway, grand stately homes and castles and world-famous gardens nestled in rolling hills. Within the Cotswolds lie Oxford, Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon, magnificent Warwick Castle and awe-inspiring Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The Cotswolds are rich in English folklore: tales of a flying monk of Malmesbury Abbey, cheese rolling contests and the dunking of the mayor in Radwick village.
Home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous towns and villages in England, with colourful markets and quirky events, beautiful countryside and great shopping. A stay in the south Cotswolds puts Bristol and Bath in easy reach and a stay in the north Cotswolds brings Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford into perfect range for day visits.
This famous town has a great bohemian music and arts scene, fantastic pubs, and trendy shops and restaurants. History echoes in every street in the University town. Oxford University was founded in the 11th century and lends a unique academic atmosphere.
The perfect mix of old and new. Set on the banks of the River Avon, this beautiful town, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, comes with more than 800 years of history and a rich architectural heritage. Enjoy wandering through its streets of this vibrant, compact town.
The Romantic Road takes you north over Cleeve Hill into historic Winchcombe, visit the chocolate-box villages of Broadway, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow on the Wold and the cluster of villages around them. The south road covers Cirencester, the Stroud Valley’s peaceful hidden valleys and pretty towns.
Sudeley Castle and Gardens eight miles from Broadway is a must-see, the castle has royal connections dating over 1000 years, is the burial place of Katherine Parr, the last Henry VIII’s wives and has magnificent gardens including the Queens Garden. HRH The Prince of Wales has created an imaginative, inspired garden at Highgrove open Mar-Sep. Travel through time and history at Berkeley Castle, built in 1153 and lived in by 27 generations of Berkeleys.
Snowshill and Painswick nestle in the Cotswold Hills, historical market towns such as Cirencester, Tetbury, Stroud and Tewkesbury offer excellent local shopping with thriving markets, the larger town of Gloucester, with its historic waterfront, and Regency Cheltenham Spa has impressive architecture, stylish shopping and world-class horse racing.
History of the castle dates to the 10th century. Explore the Great Hall, State Rooms, Chapel, Ghost Tower and Dungeons, and outside, the Victorian rose garden, conservatory and peacock garden.
This timeless, slightly eccentric pastime is the quintessential Oxford experience, along the river Cherwell, either drifting downstream past the University or moving leisurely upstream admiring the wildlife.
