Attractions

The Cotswold's is world famous for the beauty of its towns and villages, here in an area bounded by Bath, Oxford, and Stratford-upon-Avon is a warm and appealing countryside, with some of the finest landscape in England. Gently undulating hills and tree-lined valleys rise gently from the green meadows of the upper reaches of the Thames to the dramatic limestone escarpment which is (quite literally) the high point of the Cotswolds.

We’re in the delightful triangle of Ancient Malmesbury, Royal Tetbury and the Capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester, with the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum and the Cotswold Water Park both on our door step.

Cotswold towns and villages such as Burford, Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water are famous all over the world and epitomise the English rural scene , these are an easy drive away, as is the wonderful Cotswold Wildlife Park (which is Dog friendly too!)
There is a wide range of attractions to suit all these tastes and more. Exploring the real Cotswolds at any time of year is a rewarding experience, each season throwing a different light on an ever-changing scene, come and try us!
