It’s no secret that this exceptionally pretty region in England is home to many a celebrity. Honey hue stone villages, rolling hills, ancient woodland, historic towns and cosy pubs with rooms in the Cotswolds make this one hot destination.
Spanning five rural counties, this rich landscape criss-crossed with Cotswold stone walls has unsurprisngly been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Scattered with wildflower meadows, enchanting footpaths, bridleways and breathtaking stately homes, including the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove Estate, it’s a walker’s paradise, and there are plenty of dog friendly pubs with rooms in the Cotswolds too.
You may want to prepare yourself for some pretty superb views as you wander through the villages; Bourton-on-the-Water with its elegant, low bridges, the antique shops in Stow-on-the-Wold and the vibrant market town of Cirencester, rich in Roman history.
As you would expect, country inns with rooms throughout the Cotswolds are just as delightful, awash with muted colours, stylishly set the scene for luxurious four poster beds, delicate antique furnishings and roll top baths. And one thing you can be sure of – a room with a view. It’s not hard to fall in love with this quintessentially English stretch of countryside.
