Discover luxury and boutique hotels in the Cotswolds
When to go
The Cotswolds is charming year-round, but summer is the best time to catch the classic green-meadow vistas. July and August might be a bit more crowded – especially during bank holiday weekends – so aim for May and June.

Tales from our travels
PlanesBristol and Birmingham are the nearest airports; fly there from UK cities including Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Newcastle, as well as from Jersey. For international flights, London Heathrow and Gatwick are both under a three-hour drive away.
TrainsDirect trains from London Paddington run regularly to stations in the Cotswolds, including Chippenham, Gloucester, Kemble, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stroud. Most journeys will only take an hour or two.
AutomobilesFrom London, the Cotswolds is only a couple of hours away along the M4; the M5 offers access from Bristol and Birmingham. It’s worth taking a car to the region – there’s no better place for country-lane cruising.
