Gloucestershire is the green heart of England, a county of thatched cottage villages, architecturally splendid towns and cities and the lush Forest of Dean and gently rolling vistas of the Cotswolds. There are plenty of great old inns and elegantly refurbished pubs and restaurants with rooms in Gloucestershire, and Gloucestershire’s best pubs with rooms are some of the nicest places to stay in this county. There’s nothing like mingling with the locals, or exploring the region’s walking trails, and enjoying fine food and ale in the evenings without having to find your way back to your accommodation.
