The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

A Gloucestershire cottage is a fantastic choice for a
self-catering holiday, close to but just far enough from the well
trodden tourist route around the Cotswolds, yet still offering
plenty of things to see and do.
Framed by the rolling Cotswold Hills, the county town of
Gloucester features a superb Gothic cathedral (backdrop in Harry
Potter films), Victorian Docklands and Roman foundations - heritage
sites comfortably mixing with modern-day shops and entertainment.
For lots of half-timbered, Tudor houses and a graceful Norman
abbey, try Tewkesbury.
Another fantastic town not-to-miss is Cheltenham Spa, known for
its striking regency architecture, tree-lined streets, impressive
shopping and dining, not to mention its racecourse. Book your
Gloucestershire cottage early for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, a major
highlight of the racing calendar and the perfect opportunity to
splash out on a new frock!
Get out and about in the Forest of Dean, laden with stacks of
trails for rambling and riding, plus interesting relics from the
county's mining era like the ancient cave system at Clearwell.
Follow the Sculpture Trail from Beechenhurst Lodge or travel by
steam on the Dean Railway through one of the country's oldest
woodlands. Another popular leafy backwater for anything outdoorsy
is Westonbirt Arboretum. Or head for the Cotswold Country Park and
Beach for lakeside strolls, freshwater bathing and BBQs. Here
you'll also find Painswick Rococo Gardens, the
only surviving complete Rococo Garden in the UK, perfect for wiling
away an afternoon in old-fashioned elegance.
Other attractions range from castles and gardens to silk mills
and farm parks - great for entertaining the family the whole year
So escape to a Gloucestershire cottage soon and fall under the
spell of this county's unhurried charms.
