Gloucestershire

The rich and diverse landscape of Gloucestershire will stay with you forever. Where else can you chase wheels of cheese down a near-vertical slope (Cooper’s Hill); search for the bones of Russian bears in an ancient woodland (the Forest of Dean); or explore the nooks and crannies of Hogwarts, just like Harry Potter (Gloucester Cathedral)?

Cottages with swimming pools in Gloucestershire will give you the freedom to take in all of these sights, and many more. The Forest of Dean is a natural draw, and contains some truly ancient trees dating back to before humans arrived in Britain (as well as those Russian bear bones – ask a local ‘who killed the bears’ and you will hear all about it). Cottages with pools near Coleford or Lydney are best placed to take advantage of the forest area and the many walking routes around it.

For a traditional holiday cottage with a pool, head for one of the pretty villages of the Cotswolds, such as Bourton-on-the-Water , Chipping Campden or Tewkesbury . These little medieval towns are perfectly preserved and beloved by visitors and residents alike. In keeping with Gloucestershire’s foodie reputation, the Cotswolds are packed full of organic farms, gastro-pubs and traditional tea rooms – visit Stow-on-the-Wold for some of the best bakeries in the county, and Cirencester for trendy delis, pubs and restaurants.

The Gloucestershire Cotswolds are also renowned for their literary history – J.R.R. Tolkien was said to have based The Shire on the village of Moreton-In-Marsh (The Bell Inn is believed to have been the inspiration for The Prancing Pony in The Lord of the Rings novels), and J.K. Rowling was born and raised in Chipping Sodbury.

Cottage with private pools near Stroud are an ideal way to combine a walking tour of the Cotswold Way with sightseeing in the local villages and day trips to Gloucester , Cirencester and Cheltenham .

A cottage break in Gloucestershire can take you in any number of directions, each one more beautiful and fascinating than the last.

The Pittville Pump Room, a magnificent Grade I listed building opened in 1830, has a museum on its top floor. In the ballroom it is possible to taste spa water from the original pump. Historic illustrations, photographs and small displays tell the story of Cheltenham from its beginnings in Anglo-Saxon times. The building is surrounded by attractive parkland with a lake and children’s playground, public tennis courts and golf course. Number 4 Clarence Road, built in 1832 by James Creed, is the house in which Gustav Holst was born on 21 September 1874, and where he spent the first seven years of his childhood. The Holst Birthplace Museum is a memorial to the composer and a rare treat for lovers of music. On the summit of nearby Leckhampton Hill above the Devil’s Chimney, a teetering rock column, is the site of an Iron Age fort; keen walkers can follow the Cotswold Way.
