The Central England/Cotswolds region
The unique region officially covers an area of 790 square miles in the upper part of the southwest region of England and is the country's largest officially designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (see our Fact Sheet).
Popular with both the English themselves and international visitors from all over the world, the area is well known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being so ‘typically English’ where time has stood still for over 300 years.
The climate is usually quite mild and can change very rapidly from day to day so expect variable weather conditions. Be prepared for anything.
Here are some examples of activities around the area. Plus many more and of course the option of a stroll or walk in the surrounding countryside:
The Edward Jenner Museum
The museum in Berkeley was Edward Jenner’s house and now informs visitors of his work as a scientist, general practitioner and surgeon. He is famous as the first doctor to introduce and study the smallpox vaccine.
This magnificent cathedral has been a place of worship for over 1300 years. Open every day of the year, it is well worth a look a round. Established in 1539, the cathedral choir sings six services a week plus festive services at Christmas and Easter.
Westonbirt, The National Arboretum
Westonbirt is a world-renowned tree garden. A historical collection of over 3,000 different trees and shrub species many of which are rare or endangered in their native lands. With a six hundred acre site, the arboretum is an inspiring place to relax, and explore.
The National Waterways Museum
Situated in the Gloucester Docks, the museum gives a fascinating insight into the history of the British and local waterways. There is always a wide range of exhibits and activities, and a collection of historic boats on the dockside. We also suggest looking around the dock and discovering how the canal is used in the 21st century. The city of Gloucester is a half hour drive away.
Slimbridge Wetland Centre
Slimbridge is home to an astounding array of wildlife
including the world's largest collection of swans, geese, and ducks. A year round programme of walks, arts, events, workshops, talks and spectacular wildlife encounters are a fantastic way for everyone to connect to their natural surroundings.
The Roman Baths, Bath
The Romans built these baths around Britain’s only hot springs. The temple and bathing complex still flow with naturally hot water today. In the car the baths are approximately 50 minutes away.
The Norman home of the Berkeley family is open between 21st March and 26th October on Sundays and bank holiday weekends. During July and August it is open seven days a week. Opening hours are 11am - 5.30pm. The castle is an outstanding example of medieval architecture.
A great place to take the children, Cattle Country is home to many farm animals as well as indoor and outdoor play equipment. Cattle Country is just a 10-minute drive away at Berkeley.

"Excellent family and toddler friendly base for exploring the local area"
Fabulous cottage, very clean, neat and tidy. Excellent dog walk to Cam Peak 2 mins from front door. Beautifully situated to explore local countryside but also near to amenities with Tesco a short drive away. Neighbours very friendly and location very quiet and peaceful. My husband and I visited with our 18 month daughter and 2 dogs and found the cottage extremely well stocked with essentials and very baby friendly with travel cot, high chair and stair gate. We will definitely stay again! Thanks for a brilliant holiday Shirley :o)
