Here we feature six of our favourite luxury holiday homes to rent for your next staycation in the wonderful Cotswolds.
Sprinkled with gorgeous villages and medieval towns, the part of England that stretches westwards from London to Wales comes as close to an old-world idyll as you’ll ever find. It’s a haven of green-cloaked hills, rose-clad cottages, graceful churches and thatched roofs. Add the university city of Oxford to this alluring mix, with its majestic architecture and youthful scene, and it’s obvious why the region is a mag- net for visitors.
Although the roads are busy in summer, it’s easy to escape the tourist trail. The golden-hued Cotswolds work their finest magic when you find your own romantic hideaway.
We showcase a wide range of properties in popular and quintessentially English towns like Stratford-upon-Avon, Hook Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stroud. This selection of places to stay are all taken from our Luxury Properties Collection.
