Holiday Cottages In Cotswolds To Rent

Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds

A rolling patchwork of hills, fields and forests and peppered with towns and villages that seem to have appeared from some beautiful, bygone age, the Cotswolds is just waiting to be explored! In addition, the Cotswolds is the second largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, making the perfect backdrop for our superb range of Cotswolds Cottages. If you really want to relax, a holiday in the Cotswolds is the fastest way to slow down.

Spanning six counties, the Cotswolds might be famous for its picturesque villages, but there’s plenty of shopping in the larger towns and cities, such as Oxford, Worcester and Gloucester. However, if you really want to escape the rat race, check out our selection of Cotswolds Cottages that are right in the heart of the countryside. With thatched cottages, Gothic churches and imposing mansions, this is Britain at its best.

What is there to see in the Cotswolds?

Whether you’re escaping with a loved one for a long weekend or taking a break with the family, there’s plenty to see and do – and we’ve plenty of Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds to suit your needs. Kenilworth Castle is a prime example of a crumbling stronghold and its extensive grounds are often the site for medieval festivals and jousting displays. If your kids like their activities a little on the wilder side, a visit to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and Gardens will bring them face to face with giraffe, let them watch rhinos having lunch, and even hang about with some lemurs!

However, if it’s just the two of you, a trip to the famous Lavender Fields in the summer is about as romantic as it gets, perhaps followed by watching the sun set from the Devil’s Chimney, in Leckhampton.

With 80% of the Cotswolds used as farmland, there’s no shortage of places to eat, serving local meats and seasonal vegetables, to create delicious dishes. You’ll find plenty of gastropubs and fine-dining establishments, but there are also lots of regular pubs and inns, where you can enjoy a snuggle in a snug, and some home-cooked food.

Our Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds allow you to visit this stunning part of England at any time of year, giving you the chance to see how the region’s character changes with the seasons.
