The Central England/Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding natural beauty with beautifully preserved natural honey stone houses in villages nestling in rolling countryside.A photographers paradise. Over many years, the area has had very strict rules about buildings being built or repaired, keeping to a strict code so as not to spoil this beautifully unspoilt area of England. Farms and woods compliment the villages making the area a must visit destination.

We have four definite seasons which makes repeat visits even more special.Imagine a quaint stone cottage with spring flowers in a small garden, the sun is shining and the birds are singing and building their nests and you can hear nature because it is so quiet and peaceful. Imagine going to a small local pub and perhaps having a delicious home cooked meal and some local beer. Come back again in the autumn and see the same area with completely different colours.

We have an extremely good network of foot paths where you can get right into the heart of the countryside and see wildlife, fauna and flora and hear very little in the way of mechanical noise. Long distance paths are also a great attraction as well as small town walks of discovery of historical interest.

Bourton on the Water

Bourton-on-the-water has many attractions to suit all ages.2.5 miles away.

Birdland with its King Penguins great fun to watch especially at feeding times.

The Model Village

The Cotswold Motoring Museum the home of BRUM.

The model Railway

The Cotswold Perfumery

Dragon Fly maze.

Plenty of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.

You can pick up a picnic and walk to Lower Slaughter and onto Naunton and the Guitings. Horses are very evident in the landscape with riding schools and race horse training stables. Cheltenham and Stratford race courses are not far. Markets are popular, farmers and street. VIC in Bourton has all local information as do we. Please ask.
