Discover the Cotswolds

Enjoy the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is one of those unique areas of the UK for which there is no comparison anywhere in the world. Quite simply, it possesses a charm and character that have established it as one of the most popular destinations in the country with an appeal that brings people back year after year. Indeed, many have found the allure of the Cotswolds so strong that they settle here permanently.

Designated Britain’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds is characterised by rolling hills and crafted, honey-coloured stone, walls and buildings. The landscape is dotted with idyllic towns and villages nestling invitingly to create the warmest of welcomes for those visiting the area.

There’s something for everyone at whatever pace life takes you whether it’s walking; fishing; or other sporting pastimes; browsing antique shops; eating out at fine restaurants; theatre; or simply relaxing with a good book midst tranquil surroundings.

Described by the historian GM Trevelyan as “the most beautiful village now left in the island”, for many, Chipping Campden with its charming cottages, houses and bustling high street, epitomises the Cotswolds and etches fond memories that last a lifetime.

Chipping Campden also makes a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful little corner of England with Cheltenham, Bath, Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Warwick and London also within easy reach by car or public transport.
