Gloucestershire & The Cotswolds

Known as the land of ‘rolling hills’, the Cotswolds is full of quintessential English villages. It’s also where you’ll find England’s most complete Regency town, hundreds of well-known filming locations, farm-shops and small craft producers, and much more!

The local,honey-coloured limestone, to be found across the whole of Gloucestershire, gives this region a feeling of warmth and beauty renowned around the world.

Known historically as a wool-producing region, the agricultural industry strongly influenced the culture and individuality of the small villages and towns across the Cotswolds. But as Cheltenham’s former spa waters attracted the aristocracy and royalty in the past, the same social-set continue to flock here today as the region is full of stunning propertiesincluding stately homes and gardens open to the public.
