Serenity in the undulating hills of pastoral England

Honey-hued cottages nestled amongst gentle, verdant slopes – the Cotswolds evoke nostalgic images of quintessential England. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this rural idyll surpasses expectations with its delightful villages, genteel tearooms and swathes of grass-green hills. Whilst in some ways it really does feel as though time stands still in the Cotswolds, it also has a wealth of contemporary gastropubs, luxurious boutiques and its own quirky traditions – such as cheese-rolling, wool-sack racing and Morris dancing.

  • Cheltenham

    Elegant Cheltenham sits to the west of the Cotswolds and is known for its Regency architecture. Famed as a spa resort in the 18th century, the highlights of this cultured town include the graceful Pittville Pump Room (modelled on a columned Athenian temple), the Wilson Art Gallery & Museum (presenting a selection British art & design) and the Holst birthplace (childhood home of the composer Gustav Holst).

  • Chavenage House

    The peaceful manor at Chavenage is home to striking stained glass windows, intricate tapestries and centuries of fascinating tales, and is brought to life by the family who live in the house, as they host the tours. The mellow Cotswold stone of this Elizabethan house glows against the manicured green surroundings, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. Chavenage House has also featured in several film and television productions (most recently the Poldark series).

  • Stow on the Wold

    This enticing little market town is the capital of the Cotswolds, and was an important centre for the wool industry in years past. Testifying to this is the large Market Square with its grand buildings and shaded alleys, the elegant townhouses, and the fine galleries and antique shops that can be found here.

  • Burford

    Bustling Burford is a picturesque medieval town on the Windrush River. Its broad High Street sweeps down toward an ancient bridge, and is lined with wonky Tudor buildings. Also worth exploring are the quaint side streets and snug alleyways, down which you can find tearooms, antiques dealers and old public houses.

  • Bibury

    The picture-postcard village of Bibury, laced snugly along the River Coln, is surely a contender for England’s most beautiful village. The attractive Arlington Row, a terrace of 17th century weavers’ cottages, is as picturesque as it gets.

  • Tetbury

    The second-largest town in the Cotswolds, lovely Tetbury has over 1,000 years of history – much of which can be seen in its curious old buildings. Highlights include the splendid pillared Market Hall, the picturesque Chipping Steps and the Georgian Gothic Church of St. Mary the Virgin. Tetbury has claims to royalty too: it’s the home of HRH The Prince of Wales, who lives on the Highgrove estate.

  • Sudeley Castle & Gardens

    Discover royal connections and a fascinating history spanning over 1,000 years at the stunning Sudeley Castle & Gardens, set in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside. Visitors can walk in the footsteps of some of history’s most notable characters, including Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, Queen Elizabeth I, Richard III and Charles I. The castle remains the only private castle in England to have a queen buried within its grounds – Catherine Parr, who lived and died here. Explore the 10 magnificent gardens, exhibitions, castle rooms and St Mary’s Church.
