Discover boutique hotels in the Cotswolds, United Kingdom

The Cotswolds earns its title as Britain’s largest designated area of natural beauty: luxury villas, boutique hotels and townhouse stays are set amid forests, verdant hills and petite, honey-hued villages. It’s more typically British than a bowler-hatted Bertie Wooster whistling Elgar, but the area’s Roman legacy lives on in ancient Cirencester; Southrop and Crudwell’s thatched cottages and ivy-coloured churches.
