Beautiful at any time of the year

One of the most quintessentially British parts of the world is the Cotswolds. It showcases the heart and breadth of British culture.

It’s beautiful at any time of the year, whether it’s at the height of summer with glorious sunshine, or filled to the brim with snow in the middle of winter. It’s packed full of history and yet it’s also a place that is home to countless things to do to keep the kids entertained.

For adults and children of all ages, don’t miss out on a visit to Cotswold Water Park, or go Rhino spotting at Cotswold Wildlife Park. You can find a miniature village in Bourton on the Water or take a day trip to Blenheim Palace. One thing for certain is you won’t get bored of looking for things to do!

The Cotswolds is the largest of 40 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOBs) in England and Wales and appreciated by a steady footfall of visitors from all over the world at all times of the year.

Broadway is considered to be the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’ and it’s not surprising to understand why. It’s a perfect base for exploring the area and apart from stunning walks, the pretty high street is lined with honey coloured Cotswold stone cottages with history bursting at their seams.

At Christmas time in Broadway, the high street is lit up with fairy lights and an enormous Christmas tree takes centre stage. The pretty little shops are festively decorated and the smell of mulled wine spills out onto the pavements creating a really magical Christmas atmosphere.

Getting there is easy. 

The Cotswolds lie between the M5, M40 and M4 motorways and the area is bounded by two major rail routes so its pretty easy to get their either under your own steam or public transport.
