|Welcome To The Cotswolds
The ‘Cotswolds Area’ officially spreads across 790 square miles, settled within the northern part of the southwest region of England and encompassing the six English counties of Wiltshire, Worcestershire, North East Somerset, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Bath and Oxfordshire.
The Cotswolds has officially been named as the UK’s largest “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and has become a favourite location for both the British and tourists from far and wide. There are many reasons why this picturesque area has stood out to ‘want to be visitors’. With the hillsides (otherwise known as ‘wolds’) as a perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday in the stunning countryside, with river valleys, water meadows and the ageless villages constructed from the local golden-coloured limestone. The architecture has certain uniqueness about it that one would struggle to not fall in love with! Quite simply an outstanding destination to experience a bit more of what the UK has to offer, it is so easy to imagine yourself back in the 1700’s as many of the market towns have preserved the look and feel of a bygone era.
The area is full of quaint towns and absolutely wonderful countryside just waiting to be explored, with some of the more popular towns used as a base when touring the Cotswolds. Areas such as Gloucester, Stroud, Warwick, Malvern, Oxford, Stratford Upon Avon, Swindon, Worcester and Cheltenham.
Chipping Norton is the highest town in Oxfordshire located on the western slopes of a former Norman Castle and is only 20 miles from Oxford. Excellent rail and road links to London and surrounding areas make Chipping Norton ideally placed for a short break away. It has been a market town since 1205 and the market is still in its original location, situated high up on the hill which helps form the town centre. It became a prosperous wool trading town during the 15th century and the impressive church of St. Mary demonstrates this new found wealth. It is located in beautiful countryside with breath-taking scenery all around, with rolling hillsides and vibrant river valleys offering fabulous opportunities for a variety of outdoor events. It’s an energetic small town unspoiled by the influences of tourism offering a good selection of Inns, Pubs, Restaurants and numerous antique shops. Chipping Norton is certainly a great place to visit, as you can see on our hotel images opposite, accommodation here is typically quaint and typically British!
