Stay in Winchcombe, the walking capital of the Cotswolds. It has a timeless quality about it, with Cotswold stone cottages enhanced by black and white half-timbered buildings, narrow side streets and charming houses making up the centre of town. Highlights include Sudeley Castle and the nearby Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.

Walk along part of the Cotswolds Way, from Winchcombe to Belas Knap, to get some amazing views across the unspoilt English countryside and explore its wildlife. Other places to visit are; Stanton, Stanway (with Stanway House), Snowshill, Naunton and Guiting, all of which are lovely Cotswold villages.  The Cotswolds’ great outdoors is waiting for you.
