Holiday Cottages In Cotswolds To Rent

Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds

A rolling patchwork of hills, fields and forests and peppered with towns and villages that seem to have appeared from some beautiful, bygone age, the Cotswolds is just waiting to be explored! In addition, the Cotswolds is the second largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, making the perfect backdrop for our superb range of Cotswolds Cottages. If you really want to relax, a holiday in the Cotswolds is the fastest way to slow down.

Spanning six counties, the Cotswolds might be famous for its picturesque villages, but there’s plenty of shopping in the larger towns and cities, such as Oxford, Worcester and Gloucester. However, if you really want to escape the rat race, check out our selection of Cotswolds Cottages that are right in the heart of the countryside. With thatched cottages, Gothic churches and imposing mansions, this is Britain at its best.

What is there to see in the Cotswolds?

Whether you’re escaping with a loved one for a long weekend or taking a break with the family, there’s plenty to see and do – and we’ve plenty of Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds to suit your needs. Kenilworth Castle is a prime example of a crumbling stronghold and its extensive grounds are often the site for medieval festivals and jousting displays. If your kids like their activities a little on the wilder side, a visit to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and Gardens will bring them face to face with giraffe, let them watch rhinos having lunch, and even hang about with some lemurs!

However, if it’s just the two of you, a trip to the famous Lavender Fields in the summer is about as romantic as it gets, perhaps followed by watching the sun set from the Devil’s Chimney, in Leckhampton.

With 80% of the Cotswolds used as farmland, there’s no shortage of places to eat, serving local meats and seasonal vegetables, to create delicious dishes. You’ll find plenty of gastropubs and fine-dining establishments, but there are also lots of regular pubs and inns, where you can enjoy a snuggle in a snug, and some home-cooked food.

Our Holiday Cottages in the Cotswolds allow you to visit this stunning part of England at any time of year, giving you the chance to see how the region’s character changes with the seasons.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Cotswolds To Rent.

DENNIS - verified booking

"Having stayed at Sloe Trees on a number of previous occasions I was very disappointed to find that the owners are letting the property degrade. 1.Some of the double glazed windows have blown and were covered with condensation.2. The sofas in the lounge is past their best .3. The surrounds require attention as there are a number of patio tiles that are lose and require resetting. They could be dangerous if small children are running around. 4. The property had, in my opinion, not been cleaned properly and the vacuum cleaner was already half full of muck!5. The smell from the dishwasher was awful when we opened the door of the machine. We closed it up and did not use it all week preferring to wash by hand in the sink.6. The shower over the bath is broken and cannot be used as intended. We had to prop the shower head up as best we could.7. Some how wasps are getting into the bedrooms, even when the windows are closed. On a number of occasions we found dead wasps on the floors.8. Comments about the shower had been made in the visitors book over the past few years but for whatever reason the owners have ignored them!I am not setting anything down here which I did not mention on a note that I left at the property. I also made similar comments in the visitors book myself.In view of the overall condition of the property now I do not consider that it is worth the rate charged. I consider that these points should be taken up with the owners."

"This is a very spacious cottage with all the necessary amenities in the kitchen. The furniture is plentiful and of good quality. It has a secluded garden with a sitting out area. The cottage is tastefully decorated and attractive. There is a sense that the cleaning between visits is very thorough.On the negative side are a number of issues. The site is close to the very busy Fosse Way, and a gravel extraction plant. The plant becomes very noisy from 7.30am onwards, and the diggers are visible from the cottage. Because of the busy road, walks from the house are at best noisy, and, at worst, dangerous.Some double glazing units have broken down, and the resultant condensation trapped between the panes is unsightly. Quite a lot of painted wood is in need of attention.TV was not working on arrival, and needed new batteries, and the WiFi only worked on rare occasions. We did not find the settees comfortable, to the point of back and neck ache, but this is a very personal thing. Re cycling is a joke, I have never read such complicated instructions, and we never found the paper and cans bin, We ended up taking a lot of it home.Despite this, we enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Cotswolds, and would, probably, give Sloe Trees another go. We especially enjoyed the abundance of wildlife viewed from the windows."

"Sloe Trees is a great location for being able to visit other cities as we did, such as Bath and Oxford.The house itself is in need of some care and updating. The owners are selling the property so it seems as if they are reticent to modernise it, even though it is in need of it. The house is a good size with good facilities (a weak but warm shower) but definitely needs to be modernised and windows addressed as there were many flies found dead during our stay.Although marketed as having WiFi, once booked we were told it was limited. In fact during our whole stay we couldn’t access the internet at all so would recommend being prepared for this. Sloe Trees is a lovely property but overall needs a lot of improvement and has needed it for some years, as stated in the visitors book - many visitors have suggested improvements over the years and the property still needs those changes now. It is clear that the owners are not keen to make the changes so can’t see it getting any better."

"Shamrock Cottage is beautiful and the location is amazing. We've just returned from a four night stay and would certainly like to think we'll return. The cottage was lovely and clean, the decor was great and the beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept on. We also really appreciated the welcome supplies that were left for us. Parking was not an issue and we were there on a bank holiday which a local told us was the busiest day they had this year. It is a short, and very pleasant walk up to the car park, and there are also parking spaces out the front where we could usually get a space in the evening.Our days included trips to the beautiful towns of Stow, Moreton in Marsh, Cirencester and we had the most beautiful walk from the cottage up to Lower and Upper Slaughter - stunning! The rest of the time we enjoyed Bourton itself and felt very lucky."

Scott - verified booking

"Chub locks but only one key, so if one of us went out and one stayed in, one of us was either locked in or locked out, or the house was left unlocked, when one of us was sleeping for example, absolutely ridiculous.Bed in main bedroom very very very creaky, we had to sleep in separate beds so we didn’t disturb each other.No corkscrew or bottle opener.I’m not tall, but had to crouch or sit in Bath as shower head too low.Several bulbs not working on arrival, we found replacements but these should be dealt with on changeover.Overall we felt the cottage showed signs of owners a long way away, which they are (in USA), and a not especially ‘invested’ handover person. Do the owners know there is only one key, do they know about the bed, do they know the front door is rotting, do they know the plants are dead or dying in the back patio?"
