Find cottages in Gloucestershire

There are a lot of reasons that make Gloucestershire the perfect place for a self-catering cottage holiday. Take for example the areas of outstanding natural beauty like the Cotswolds with its ‘picture postcard’ limestone villages and tranquil countryside and The Forest of Dene which has been a national park since 1938.

Gloucestershire’s natural beauty is enhanced with a backdrop of historical towns and cities including Gloucester itself; home to Gloucester Cathedral with its stunning stain glass windows and cloisters and 1,000 years of history. Thanks to its appearance in the Harry Potter films, it should also appeal to younger visitors.

Also of historical interest is Tewkesbury, situated between the rivers Severn and Avon this town has some of the best medieval architecture in England and a wonderful abbey that goes back to Norman times. Coming slightly more up to date the regency town of Cheltenham Spa is beautifully presented and famous for its open parklands and floral displays.

Like most of Gloucestershire the Forest of Dene and Wye Valley is perfect for gentle walks and countryside cycling and has plenty of places of interest including castles and museums. The forest covers some 50 square miles of ancient woodland and has activities suitable for all ages from forest canopy zip-wires and paint-balling to butterfly zoos and the Dene Valley Railway. For those who enjoy our great British wildlife a visit to Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetland Trust must be at the top of the agenda. The trust was the vision of the renowned naturalist Sir Peter Scott who created one of the world’s most significant conservation projects which now manages to attract huge populations of swans, geese and ducks every year.

Family holidays can be enjoyed in this region with plenty of days out and things to do; For example The International Centre for Birds of Prey at Newent has a great collection of hawks, falcons and eagles from around the world and the Cotswold Motoring Museum and Toy Collection at Bourton-on-the-Water takes you on a fascinating journey of the 20th century and is sure appeal to both children and adults. The Perrygrove Railway is a lovely little heritage railway runs to the edge of the Forest of Dene and offers plenty to keep the family entertained.

    Ref: 26183

    Oozing with charm and character, this warm and welcoming, terraced holiday home is an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds. Located within the heart of Bourton-on-the-Water, known locally as ’the Venice of the Cotswolds’, Station Cottage is just seconds from the high street and all the attractions that this popular Cotswold village has to offer.


    This early 18th century, Grade II listed cottage has been restored to provide all the creature comforts of a home away from home. To the front of the property there is a small courtyard garden, ideal for enjoying a glass of wine in the summer. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod-cons and the dining room has an extendable oak dining table with four chairs. Both bedrooms have been furnished to a very good standard with oak furniture and for that extra comfort, they include goose feather pillows and duvets.


    Bordered by Stow-on-the-Wold to the north, Northleach to the south, The Rissingtons to the east and The Slaughters to the west, Bourton-on-the-Water sits in the heart of the Cotwolds. One of the more distinctive Cotswold villages, the River Windrush runs through Bourton and is straddled by a series of low, elegant, stone bridges and bordered by shaded greens, providing the perfect picnic spot. Children can enjoy a spot of river paddling whilst adults admire the handsome Cotswold architecture.
    Every August Bank Holiday, there is a football match played in the river, often drenching both the players and the spectators alike!


    Station Cottage sits just seconds off the main thoroughfare so you can mooch along the high street in search of the perfect holiday memento, or simply enjoy delicous local produce in one of the many local eateries. It’s the perfect spot for a weekend getaway but there’s heaps to do if you’re tempted to linger in this idyllic spot.


    With its model village, Birdland Park and Gardens, the Cotswolds Perfumery and a collection of vintage cars and antique toys literally on the doorstep, you don’t need a car to keep the whole family entertained. Within easy striking distance you will find a host of well known Cotswold attractions including Hidcote Manor, Snowshill Manor, Bourton House, Sezincote, Kiftsgate Court and Batsford Aboretum.
