Places To Visit In The Cotswolds
From Old Manor Holiday Cottages charming Cotswolds villages and the larger towns of Cheltenham, Cirencester, Burford and Gloucester are all within easy reach. Gloucestershire itself offers great variety for visitors with everything from the designer shopping outlets at Gloucester Quays to the Slimbridge Wild Fowl Trust. There's lots for holiday cottage guests to see and do whether you're visiting on holiday, for a weekend break or a short break in the country.
Tewkesbury is on the western edge of The Cotswolds, and the holiday cottages are close to the traditional Cotswolds towns of Winchcombe and Broadway. The limestone hills of the Cotswolds have provided the stone for the traditional honey coloured houses and dry stone walls found throughout The Cotswolds. It's wonderful walking and touring country and there are plenty of places to stop for a browse around the quaint village streets, browse in the galleries and gift shops, enjoy a local cream tea or visit National Trust gardens and houses such as Hidcote.
The Cotswolds offers a wide range of attractions and activities with something for everyone from Adam Henson's Cotwolds Farm Park to Fine Art Galleries and award wining local farm shops to celebrity chef restaurants.

At Christmas the Promenade hosts the German style Cheltenham Christmas Market.
