Best destinations for Cotswolds cottages

  • Wales: If you're looking to stay on the Welsh side of the Cotswolds, you'll find yourself in one of the most authentic Celtic nations still existing in the modern world. Staying in Monmouth would put you by the Cotswolds and virtually endless well-maintained grassland especially around the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cotswolds cottages can vary quite a bit, so you should have no problem finding affordable options, luxury options and everything in between.
  • Dorset: On the southern coast of England, you'll find the Dorset region. Many villages and towns populate the area, and they each have something special to offer. You can spend time on the sandy beaches along the channel or book holiday cottages in the Cotswolds in one of the inner towns for a quiet and relaxing holiday adventure. There are also over 30 museums in the area that cover general and specialist categories. The Tank Museum at Bovington is particularly interesting as it features tanks and armoured vehicles from many more nations than just the UK.
  • Somerset: Somerset features a rich cultural tradition that includes the arts, history and famous Arthurian legends. There are 11,500 listed historical buildings you can visit such as the Barrington Court and the Holnicote Estate with their extravagant gardens and parks. You may also want to stop by the local museums such as the Jane Austen Centre and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy. Holiday cottages in the Cotswolds tend to be a bit more historic, but you'll still find luxury amenities if that's what your desired holiday experience calls for.
