Relax with a road-trip round the Cotswolds
Escape the everyday this summer with a relaxing road-trip round the quaint villages of the Cotswolds. With another heatwave expected there is no better place to be than outdoors and there sure are some views that warrant a look round this part of the great British countryside.
This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is defined by its golden coloured architecture and verdant rolling pastures that make up the second largest protected landscape in England. You may wish to ramble across the undulating hills and then seek out the nearest tea room for a light lunch, or wander round the honey-coloured cottages, before enjoying a cold one in a cosy country pub.
With historic hamlets dating back to the thirteenth century, sublime spa-towns and endless views, this stunning region of England is unrivalled in many ways. Wind round the scenic landscape and pass through some of the prettiest villages you could possibly wish to find like Bibury, and Bourton-on-the-Water, Castle Combe and Lower Slaughter. Rummage round antique shops, browse open-air markets and take stock over afternoon tea by the side of the tranquil River Windrush.
If you ever tire of exploring this enchanting region, having walked along a little of the Cotswold Way, then why not take rest in the beautiful city of Bath, where you can wine, dine and relax, before bedding down in the heart of the historic Georgian city. Having wet your appetite with a road-trip round the Cotswolds, why not turn to the city and dine alfresco at one of Bath’s coolest culinary establishments, or perhaps stop in a cosy gastropub on the outskirts of town for more rural views on route. Then return to your bed for some well-earned rest at your perfect property with Bath Self Catering: accommodation to suit every taste and budget.
