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.

    "Fine cottages and facilities – just a mile from one of England’s finest Regency towns . . ."

    Occupying a superb position with wonderful rural views, yet within a mile or so of Cheltenham’s elegant town centre, these delightful holiday cottages have been created from a range of 19th-century barns and are furnished and equipped to high standards. All cottages enjoy a good choice of shared facilities including a covered heated swimming pool, an all-weather tennis court and a croquet lawn. The cottages are well equipped, with an automatic washing machine, microwave oven and dishwasher, and each cottage has its own sitting out area with patio and furniture.
    All the fascinating corners of the beautiful Regency spa town of Cheltenham are immediately to hand: there is an art gallery, a museum, tempting boutiques, antique shops, plentiful restaurants and inns. Only a short walk away is Cheltenham’s racecourse, famous as the home of National Hunt Racing, which stages the Cheltenham Festival in March, as well as several other top quality race meetings between October and the end of April. 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.
