Why You Should Rent a Holiday Cottage in Gloucestershire

This southwest county is home to some of the UK’s best country markets, captivating historic castles and ancient Roman villas, as well as adventure activities, amazing landscapes and enchanting forests. Thrill-seekers can try mountain biking in Cheltenham, horse riding in Brookthorpe or air ballooning in Tetbury. From the Cotswolds region to the Forest of Dean to the Severn Vale, this county has ample beauty to explore and admire. Here are four great reasons to book your next holiday cottage in Gloucestershire.

Outstanding Outdoor Activities

If you’re looking for a holiday with outdoor fun and adventure, Gloucestershire has everything you could want and more. From watersports, including water skiing, sailing, kayaking and canoeing, on the River Wye and Cotswolds lakes to mountain biking in the beautiful Cheltenham countryside; from golfing in Lydney to exploring the skies over the Cotswolds on an air balloon, visitors are truly spoilt for choice. Stay at a holiday cottage anywhere in the county and you’ll never be far from one of the many activities on offer.

Stunning Walking Trails

The Gloucestershire Way is an amazing route for rambling, incorporating hundreds of walking trails. The scenery is varied, leading through woodlands, over hilltops, along the Cotswolds, through wooded glades of the Forest of Dean and along the UK’s largest inland beach. If you’re staying at a holiday cottage in Gloucestershire, there are so many choices for walks, you might not know where to begin. For a relaxing, easy stroll, head for Cotswold Country Park and Beach between Swindon and Cirencester for a quiet lakeside walk. Or, if you are looking for a bit more of a challenge, try some longer and more intense walks, such as the moderate Bourton-on-the-Water trail or the Cam Long Down and Uley, which features some steep and difficult sections on a route that winds through a variety of the county’s landscapes.

Historic Remains

Gloucestershire is home to some spectacular old castles and ancient Roman villas. Sudeley Castle and Gardens has royal connections dating back over 1,000 years. Henry VIII’s sixth wife, Katherine Parr, lived at the castle and is buried there today. Visitors can walk in the footsteps of past kings and queens and explore the award-winning gardens. If you’re staying at a holiday cottage near Cheltenham, make sure you visit the Chedworth Roman Villa, which was home to some of the richest people in the country during the 4th century. Although it’s now in ruins, the villa still offers insight into some of the incredible ancient inventions brought to England by the Romans, including mosaics, bathhouses and underfloor heating.

Country Markets

There are plenty of opportunities to sink your teeth into some of England’s finest produce at Gloucestershire’s many markets and farm shops that sell locally produced, organic food. If you’re staying at a holiday cottage near Minchinhampton, make sure you visit the town’s Thursday morning country market, which has stalls selling everything from plants and crafts to cakes, preserves and vegetables. Northwest of there, the Frocester Fayre Farm Shop sells meat from the family’s own farm, as well as other locally sourced ingredients.

Book a holiday cottage in Gloucestershire and you can enjoy the beautiful countryside and forests, local organic food, fascinating historic ruins and all the outdoor activities you could possibly fit into one getaway.
