Best of the Cotswolds


The countryside, towns and villages of the nearby Cotswolds are beautiful.  Like Stratford this area of low hills, once a famous sheep farming region is a must-do. It has been designated an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. We recommend going to Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Moreton-in- Marsh and Bibury.  For wonderful views go to Broadway Tower.   If you give yourself more time there are many day walks and other places to visit.  Books and maps are available.  We have a few at The Emsley. If you do not have a car, or would rather someone else do all the work for you, we recommend you take Tom’s Cotswold Day Tour.
