The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds are centered on the gentle slopes of the Cotswolds Hills and are officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the largest in England and Wales, and made up from parts of the English Counties of Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Somerset. We also include the county of Herefordshire. The region is popular with both the English and visitors from all over the world and considered by most to be quintessentially English.
The landscape is famous for its gentle hillsides (‘wolds’) and the drystone walls which wander between the fields, constructed with considerable skill and forming a architectural feature into which considerable conservation effort is expended. Within this countryside sit the famous cities such as Bath, the well-known towns such as Burford and Castle Combe and the hidden villages off the beaten track such as Painswick, WinchCombe, Biddestone or Woodstock which still hold secrets for the visitor to discover.
The buildings of the Cotswolds are a distinctive feature of the region. The honey-coloured limestone, sourced from the local hills is used for everything from the stone floors in the houses to the tiles on the roof, giving the village streets a unique, “English” appearance and ambiance.
What to See and Do:
Visit the unspoilt historic church at Northleach which is often called the “Cathedral of the Cotswolds”.
Shop in the market towns and villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Tetbury.
Discover the manor house gardens and Hidcote Manor, near Chipping Campden, or Snowshill Manor, Near Broadway or the cottage gardens thoughout the villages of the Cotswolds.
Enjoy the stunning countryside on a walk through the villages and Wolds. One of the best ways to walk with confidence in the countryside is to use a Circular Walk, following a leaflet describing the route. This will provide a map with clear instructions and usually notes places of interest to look out for on your way. To explore some of the historic towns in the Cotswolds, why not spend an hour following a Town Trail taking in the architectural heritage and history written in stone, before stopping for a drink at a traditional pub or afternoon tea at a tea-room?
Depending on the time of year, there are numerous festivals and events ranging from Shakespeare festivals to Cheese Rolling!
Bourton on the Water
With the river Windrush running through the village and many bridges crossing it, Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds. The many excellent restaurants, pubs and shops and the many attractions including Birdland, the Model Village and the Motor Museum make Bourton-on-the-Water an ideal base to explore the Cotswolds.

"Lovely home in a great location"
The cottage was in a great location, the village being right on the doorstep with plenty of shops, pubs, restaurants, etc, to visit. The cottage was very cosy with a lovely log fire and central heating to keep the other rooms warm. It was very clean and stocked with basic essentials, a welcoming bottle of champagne, tea/coffee/milk/etc. Logs and firelighters were provided as was locally produced bathroom items such as shower gel and soap. The only minor improvement would be to have broadband/wifi as the phone and 3G signals were very weak (probably due to thick stone walls). It didnt bother us too much as only there for 3 days and there is an internet cafe nearby if needs must. Overall, a very pleasant stay, lovely cottage, good booking communication and marvelous location. We intend to return, maybe later in the year when its not raining so much!

"Cottage with character"
Lovely cottage with old charm but with all the modern essentials.
Located perfectly. Minutes walk from the town with all the restaurants and shops. Great for walking or just doing nothing.

"The best cottage ever!"
We had the privilege of staying in Allerton Cottage for the last week of our UK holiday and what an experience it was! Diane made sure that we were comfortable and was extremely welcoming. Not only was the cottage immaculate but on arrival we found bread, milk, orange juice, wine and chocolates left there for us. We truly appreciated this thoughtfulness. We had the best time in this beautiful village and were sad to leave it. Being a touristy area with hundreds of visitors daily, we loved the fact that they all had to go home at the end of the day and we had to only walk the few metres back to this very homely and cosy cottage

"Fantastic, cosy cottage"
I stayed at Allerton Cottage with my husband and daughter, and we had a brilliant time. The cottage itself was full of character, beautifully furnished and all in all very comfortable. There was plenty to do in Bourton-on-the-Water, and we found it was a brilliant base for exploring the Cotswolds, even as far as Bath. The only improvement I can think of is wi-fi, but other than that, it was great!

"Excellent cottage in superb location"
The cottage was in a very good shape, very clean and tiday, all appliances were functional, the beds were perfect, there were more than enough towels for us (2 adults, 2 children), wonderful crockery and enough cutlery and everything else for the kitchen. So all we can say is that we had a very nice holiday at Allerton Cottage!
