Your Cotswolds Experience
Wellacres House is set in open countryside in the Gloucestershire North Cotswolds, the UK's largest Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Chipping Campden - hailed as the most beautiful village in England and the jewel in the Cotswold's crown is nearby. There are breathtakingly beautiful scenes to be enjoyed and explored. Villages of honey-coloured cottages crafted from Cotswold stone, rolling hills are a stunning backdrop to the villages.
Welcoming local pubs and restaurants abound, many of which enjoy an excellent gastronomic reputation. There is Stratford-upon-Avon with its fascinating history and culture and the bright lights and spas of Cheltenham and Oxford are waiting to be explored. For shopping, savour fresh food from the many local farmers' markets and farm shops.
Children will love days out at Warwick Castle, with its spectacular displays, and at other local attractions like the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cotswold Farm Park, Stratford Butterfly Farm, Birdland and Blenheim Palace.

Definitely a whole day out. Arrive early to avoid ticket queues. Jousting, archery, falconry, medieval displays and mighty trebuchet catapult throughout the Summer. Ice rink in December. www.warwick-castle.com
Apart from all the connections with Shakespeare, Stratford is a great place for picnics, boating and shopping. You can park at the Butterfly Farm Car Park (follow directions to the Butterfly Farm as soon as you enter Stratford). There are always boats to hire or boat trips in the summer and the Butterfly Farm is worth a visit – great for a rainy day as it’s warm and dry inside! www.butterflyfarm.co.uk
