Discover The Cotswolds

Discover The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is a rural area in the South of England, covering almost 800 square miles and encompassing six counties. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are an endless supply of attractions and landscapes to appreciate.

The Cotswolds is a great mix of modern, fast-paced cities and relaxed, rural areas. Walk the Cotswold Way, voted England’s best marked trail, plus there are 3000 miles of footpaths to choose from, as well as ancient woodlands and wildflower meadows. Alternatively, explore streets brimming with delightful shops selling high-quality goods, along with fine dining restaurants and traditional pubs. Must-see attractions include Sudeley Castle, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, Hidcote Manor Garden and Berkeley Castle.
