Quintessentially English The Cotswolds remain unspoilt and the traditional cottages and villages built from the famed golden Cotswold stone make the perfect backdrop. Centrally located the Cotswolds can be easily reached from central London in a couple of hours or so and are only an hour or so from the Midlands. The Cotswolds are the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in England and Wales undulating through 6 counties: Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, south Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Wiltshire and Bath & northeast Somerset.
We have a really smart collection of luxury cottages to rent in the Cotswolds and they range from romantic retreats for two right through to large properties in the Cotswolds for groups. If you are looking for a walking holiday or to take your bike then the Cotswolds are the ideal location. Many of the cottages in the Cotswolds featured on Handpicked Cottages have paths, tracks and bridleways practically from the doorstep. Enjoy a visit to traditional villages, proper country pubs, independent shops and a host quality restaurants and eateries. There are numerous historic houses and castles to visit including: Kelmscott Manor, Chastleton House, Sudeley Castle & Gardens and of course the world famous Blenheim Palace.
So, we think a holiday or short break in the Cotswolds is the ideal tonic for those looking to get away from their busy lives in the glorious English countryside that is the Cotswolds.
