The 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.

Dursley

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.

Gloucester Cathedral
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.

Berkeley Castle
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.

Cattle Country
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.

“House hunting”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2016

Perfect little place to stay while we flat hunted for our son, Dursley seems a nice area and we look forward to returning in the better weather

Thank-you for your lovely review, Dursley is an interesting place, surrounded by the glorious Cotswold countryside. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Thanks again

“What you see in the advert is what you get, only even better.”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

This holiday cottage exceeded all our expectations. It is all the advert says it is only even better, Every age group from babies to Seniors are catered for. There are books, toys, board games and an impressive choice of DVDs for chilling out after a day out at one of the many Cotswold attractions all within easy driving range. We were a party of four, three adults a teenager and a small dog. There is a safety gate to block the stairs if you are staying with a mobile youngster. Pets are obviously welcome but if you have left your furry companion at home, don't be sad, there is Rolo a beautiful cat who lives next door and likes visiting. If you are lucky he might leave you a present at the back door. We were presented with a Pigmy Vole one morning. There is a paved area in the front garden equipped with garden chairs and a table which is a lovely sunny spot for a relaxing pre-dinner aperitif, playing a family board game or a having quiet read. We have never seen such a well-equipped cottage, It is like home from home. It is spotlessly clean and there was even a welcome tray waiting for us when we arrived. Parking is on the street which runs past the bottom of the front garden, we always found a space there but it is a little narrow as the parked cars leave only enough space for vehicles coming from opposite directions to pass on one side of the road. So you have to be vigilant when leaving your car or coming through the garden gate onto the road. Perhaps there is one last thing that I should mention about the cottage , it is opposite the village church which has a clock that strikes every quarter of an hour and rings on the hour, If you are a very light sleeper or allergic to the sound of church bells, your would be advised to pack some earplugs. Having said that, I am a very light sleeper and was not woken once by the chiming bells, without earplugs! We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely little end of terrace cottage and if or when we return to this delightful part of England, we would like stay there again with pleasure. Jean Davies and family.

Thank-you for such a wonderful response, it is lovely to get positive feedback from our guests and to know our little cottage has been enjoyed for the peace and tranquility of this hidden but very special corner of the Cotswolds. Thank-you again and we hope to be able to welcome you back soon.

“Excellent family and toddler friendly base for exploring the local area”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2014

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)

Thank-you very much for your lovely review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Onespringbank and look forward to welcoming you back to this hidden gem in the Cotswolds. Thanks again
