Search the best hotels in Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire is the green heart of England. From the postcard perfect, thatched-cottage towns of the Cotswolds and the architectural splendour of Gloucester cathedral to the beautifully refined 18th Century mansions of Cheltenham. It is rich in beauty, and in country house hotels and townhouse B&Bs, which make up many of the best places to stay in Gloucestershire.
The gently rolling wolds (hills) of the Cotswolds are the green and pleasant rural England many visitors are looking for. Biscuit-tin villages (Chipping Campden tops many lists in this category) nestled along winding rivers, and the smattering of honey coloured churches and manor houses make this one of the best places to stay in Gloucestershire.
Mysterious and beautiful, the Forest of Dean is Gloucestershire's second Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (most people think of the Cotswolds first). It’s England’s oldest oak forest, the UK’s first National Park, and an inspiration for all sorts of well known literature and lore.
Cheltenham, like Bath, was a spa retreat in the 18th Century, and there are similarities in the city's graceful architecture. And it's well loved and cared for, and regularly embellished with a festival. And of course the races. Definitely one of the best places to stay in Gloucestershire if you like shopping, dining and a flutter.

As well as grand residences and the extraordinary gardens of Hidcote, just four miles from town, the area around Chipping Campden is also home to several old mills, one of which became a centre for Charles Ashbee's Guild of Handicrafts.
- With all this farmland, Gloucestershire also hosts a myriad of farmer's markets, so this is a great destination for foodies.
- Cheltenham is England's most complete Regency town, with houses characterised by their intricate ironwork balconies and painted stucco facades. It’s also known for its award-winning green spaces.
- Still in Cheltenham, check out the beautiful Montpellier district, adorned with a fantastic selection of shops, restaurants and bars, and of course the racecourse, one of the world’s foremost horse racing venues.
- Beautiful, and even a little mysterious at times, the Forest of Dean is an ancient woodland, a wonderful place to walk, or bike, or even paddle through.
- Take an historic journey aboard the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Heritage Steam Railway through the Cotswolds.
