Where to stay while in Cotswolds
The list is long, but here are suggestions. Do not think you have to visit at all the villages, choose a few and enjoy your time.
Since you locate it on London’s main Paddington railway line, many Cotswold tours have this as their starting point. Morton is a pretty, honey-coloured architectural city that offers quirky shops, hotels with b&b offers and cheap cafes. Every Tuesday, it hosts a popular and lively market considered the largest Cotswold outdoor market. For accommodation, you can go to the White Hart Royal Hotel.
It is about 1.5 km from the low-value Rotor and 1.5 km from the popular Cotswolds Village. We know the river as the “Little Cotswold Venice” and crosses the village centre, crossed by several bridges. Bourton is a livelier place than Slaughters, with several hotels, cafes, cheap bars, model villages, shops, and the Cotswolds Automobile. While in Bourton-on-the-Water, visit the 17th-century Dial House Hotels. With a walled garden and a private spa, this is the perfect place to relax.
As noted, the third option on this list is Slaughters. The River Eye is ideal for enjoying a creamy tea at the Lower Slaughter Centre on a hot summer day. Walk along the river to the flour mill and eat ice cream. When you walk through the meadows, it will drive you to a quiet upper abattoir. Curiously, the slaughters are one of the rare thankful villages to never have lost a man during the First or Second World War. The Upper Slaughter Estate is one of the best hotels in England. The starting price for this room is £199 per night.
Enjoy the retail treatment in this gorgeous honeymoon city. There are artisan shops, cafes and cheap inns around the market square, and on the village green you will find the stocks. The main square has many narrow streets and alleys. This historic city also includes the most prestigious hotel in the country called the Porch House, which dates to 947.
Hidden in a narrow street, you will find the magnificent Church of St. John the Baptist, built around 1175. While here you can try the Lamb Inn hotel which is cheap and nice for your accommodation. The main street of this Cotswold town extends over the Windrush River through a bridge.
What to Eat and Drink ?
The Cotswolds not only provide quality restaurants in the area but also offer a variety of inexpensive ingredients to suit your budget and is a food destination. There are good cafes, bars and restaurants in most Cotswolds towns and villages.
Other local favourites include Tewkesbury mustard, Stinging Bishop cheese, vibrating trout and Hobbs House bread.
The Cotswold’s bar, restaurant and coffee menu often offer a bed and breakfast service with these high quality ingredients. And now, the Cotswolds have their own spirit – the Cotswolds. Produced at the Cotswolds Distillery, it is the first full-service winery in the region.
Why visit the Cotswolds
The Cotswolds lead to iconic places such as Oxford and Bath. It steeps these cities in history. The Cheltenham Regency and its famous racecourse, cafes, many shops and restaurants which offer bed and breakfast are also nearby.
There are many activities for families, such as Cotswold Water Park which is home to Britain’s largest beach, and Cotswold Wildlife Park.
