If you want a holiday which has a home from home feel, then you cannot beat Cotswold Holiday Cottages. Most people think of tiny buildings when they think of cottages, but this is not always the case. The quaint cottage holidays are available, and are perfect for couples or those who only have one or two children, but not so much for large families, but there are larger options for those who want more space.
There are several Cotswold Holiday Cottages which are actually two cottages which have been converted into one dwelling. This usually gives them large living rooms and kitchens and makes them 3 or 4 bedrooms. This is perfect for a family party and most of these conversions have been finished to a very luxurious standard, with top quality fixtures and fittings. The cottages come with everything you need and you will not have to take anything with you, not even a corkscrew!
The Cotswold Holiday Cottages are very popular with holiday makers in general, and many of the cottages are located in villages such as Moreton in Marsh and Bourton on the Water. These villages have the basic amenities required such as shops and pubs, but without the hustle and bustle which is associated with larger towns.
These towns are the perfect place to pick up traditional crafts or antiques, with many outlets specialising in these items. The villages are characterised by the golden coloured Cotswold stone, from which many of the buildings have been crafted, so you always know when you have reached the Cotswolds!
Village life might not be what you want for the whole of your stay in the area, so visiting cities such as Oxford and Gloucester is another option. These have tourist attractions for sightseers, nightclubs for party lovers and retail outlets for serious shoppers.
