Enjoy More in the Cotswolds This Summer.

The Cotswolds are renowned for their historical importance, natural beauty, and outdoor pursuits. With experts predicting a long glorious summer ahead, there’s never been a better time to visit. A short break to the Cotswolds can include so many things, from panoramic walks in the countryside to decadent afternoon teas and fine dining experiences. With so much to see and do it’s hardly surprising that the Cotswolds are a firm favourite with solo travellers, couples, families, and groups.

We love the Cotswolds as a year-round destination, but for anyone planning a holiday or short break there this summer, here are just a few of our favourite things to do on a sunny day.

Cotswold Lavender Farm is a beautiful place to visit in July when the lavender tends to be at its peak – walk through fields of lavender and experience a fragrant delight – enjoy a relaxing end to a day spent exploring. Be sure to take your camera!

Broadway Tower is a short distance from the pretty little village of Broadway – a quintessential Cotswolds village. Listed as the Cotswold’s highest castle, it overlooks 16 counties. Visit on a clear day and the views from the top are spectacular.

Split by the River Windrush, the leafy high street of Bourton-on -the-Water is stitched together by several small arched bridges, giving the village its nickname ‘The Venice of The Cotswolds.’ The main street is lined with antique shops, perfumeries, tea rooms, and traditional English pubs with gardens for outdoor dining.

Repeat visitors to Painswick love its Rococo Garden and beautiful Church and Churchyard containing 99 Yew Trees. This small village has been nicknamed ‘The Queen of the Cotswolds.’

Here are some of our favourite places to stay – and look at all the extras that are included!
