Attractions

What to see in the Cotswolds

Cotswolds holiday homes are perfect for making the most of a city break or longer family holiday. Visitors will be happy to discover that there's no shortage of unique destinations for a fantastic day out.

Bath is usually top of the list of towns to visit in the Cotswolds. In addition to its famous Roman baths, historic spas and magnificent medieval abbey, it is also home to some of the finest Georgian architecture in the UK. The sweeping Royal Crescent is probably the most impressive example and has made numerous appearances in film and TV.

Another must-see is the charming village of Bourton-on-the-Water, often called the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Numerous old stone footbridges cross the River Windrush as it flows tranquilly through the village. Visitors in summer should not miss the rather eccentric game of football held each year on August Bank Holiday Monday in the river itself.

Painswick, near Stroud, sits on a hilltop and is one of the best preserved historic villages in the Cotswolds, as well as one of the prettiest. As a bonus, walkers and cyclists can enjoy superb views of the Severn Valley and Welsh mountains from the surrounding countryside.

The Cotswolds are famed for their arboretum gardens, and one of the loveliest is Batsford Arboretum, near Moreton on Marsh. Covering 56 acres of breathtaking countryside, its colours and fragrances are a feast for the senses.

Art & Culture

Art and culture in the Cotswolds

Culture vultures are also well served by Cotswolds holiday lettings. Bath is home to the Fashion Museum and a number of collections of British, European and East Asian art. Gloucester hosts the oldest music festival in the world, the Three Choirs Festival, and many more events and festivals throughout the year. Kelmscott Manor, the summer residence of William Morris, was an inspiration to the artist and its beauty remains undiminished.

Family Activities

The Cotswolds with children

Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park and the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens are two terrific destinations kids will adore. Families who book a Cotswolds holiday letting can treat their kids and themselves to the thrilling climbing, jumping and swinging adventures at Head 4 Heights.

The beautiful countryside was just made for family picnics. Kids have plenty of green space around your holiday cottage to run around and play in. If the sun isn’t out, there’s always the Cotswold Motoring Museum & Toy Collection and the Jet Age Museum.
