An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty gives a hint at what to expect in the Cotswolds where villages are dissected by winding streams and thatched roofs are the norm. The honey coloured stone makes the towns and villages glow and the surrounding countryside spills into six counties providing visitors with a taste of British countryside at its best.
The Cotswolds are brimming with chocolate box holiday cottages that are perfect for discovering the local attractions, farm parks and fine dining restaurants. You can picnic in the hills or take a city trip to Cheltenham or Gloucester.
