Likewise if you like your landscape neat, your beams exposed and your pubs and inns rustic and friendly. Plus the popularity of the area with visitors has significantly increased the number of book, art and antiques boutiques.
  • With all this farmland, the Cotswolds hosts a myriad of farmer's markets, so this is a great destination for foodies. All of these beautiful villages, historic towns and stately homes are within easy striking distance of London - and other major centres.
  • The beautiful country houses were mostly built during the Middle Ages when the Cotswolds grew wealthy off the back of the wool trade with the continent. Which is why, as well as building beautiful homes, much money was spent furnishing the region with exquisite churches.
  • Some of the Cotswold's best known towns are Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton, Cirencester and Broadway. If you're at all interested in art and design, you might like to visit Chipping Campden, the birthplace of the Arts and Crafts movement founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th Century.
  • If you prefer to stay in a larger town and drive out to the rural surrounds, we suggest you book a room in Cheltenham, a regency beauty with stylish shops and restaurants and festivals galore from jazz to horse racing.
  • Bill Bryson says you can't do the Cotswolds without a car. But he's not totally right, you can do a lot of it on foot, along the gently rolling hills and valleys that make up The Cotswolds Way.

As you'd expect with such a popular destination, the best places to stay in the Cotswolds are in high demand year round. So be prepared! Plan ahead and book early. Or if you can't do that, then plan a trip midweek when you're more likely to bag the right place to stay!
