The Cotswolds is an area of
outstanding natural beauty set in the west of England -
less than two hours from London. So much variety is
contained within this ancient English landscape of gently
rolling countryside and honey-coloured stone villages.
To the north is Stratford-on-Avon - the birthplace of
Shakespeare - to the south the Georgian city of Bath and
to the east the famous university city of Oxford. Wales,
its mountains clearly visible from the Cotswolds, lies a
short distance to the west.
The area’s essential nature is rural, characterised by
numerous villages built in golden Cotswold limestone. As
the largest conservation area in Britain, the villages
reflect the lives of working communities wholly in tune
with the land from which they have sprung.
The entire region is a comprehensive holiday destination
containing a wealth of beautiful locations and enjoyable
activities. Now you have the opportunity to explore this
superb English heritage at your leisure with tailor-made
holidays that reflect your own areas of interest.
