The Real Cotswolds

  1. Spotlight on Woodstock
    Woodstock is a fine Georgian town with a distinct royal heritage, containing many attractive period buildings.
  2. Tetbury, an historic wool town, is the southern gateway to the Cotswolds. The town is known as an architectural gem with many of the wool merchants’ houses remaining the same as they were in the 16th & 17th centuries.
  3. Cirencester
    Cirencester, known as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is a lovely market town with a fascinating history where you will receive a warm welcome.
  4. Witney is the largest of the market towns in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and much of the architecture reflects the past prosperity of its blanket trade.
  5. Famous as a centre for walkers, Winchcombe has a wonderful timeless quality about it, with Cotswold stone cottages standing side by side with distinctive black and white half-timbered buildings.
  6. Northleach
    The delightful Cotswold town of Northleach is tucked away from the busy A40, between gently rolling hills, at a crossroads of the Roman Fosse Way.
  7. Malmesbury, England’s oldest borough, is quite simply a delight. The high street is full to bursting with independent shops and eateries, all nestling in the shadow of the stunning 12th century Abbey.
  8. Painswick
    This beautiful, historic wool town, sitting in regal hilltop splendour near Stroud, is known as ‘The Queen of the Cotswolds’. It is one of the best-preserved settlements in the Cotswolds, built from mellow honey-coloured stone.
