holiday accommodation in the cotswolds & the heart of england

Self catering cottages, holiday parks & lodges

This region covers the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Worcester, West Midlands and Shropshire. If you want to visit the beautiful Cotswolds, the border counties of England and Wales or the Rugby Football museum in Rugby this is the place for your family holiday. For me it would always be somewhere close to Cheltenham racecourse! The Cotswolds in Gloucestershire is a stunning region with loads of quaint villages and country pubs to visit. It's locality in such a central region of England makes it a great place to holiday for a short break or to meet up with friends and rent out large self catering cottages in the Cotswolds.
Herefordshire has some stunning scenery and is fast becoming one of the most popular counties in England for family holidays. Herefordshire on the English Welsh border is England's most rural county; they say every crop is grown here. It has been at the forefront of the food revival with among the best Food Festivals, farmers' markets and farm shops in Britain. Local ciders recommended! Herefordshire has many footpaths, characterful free-house pubs and ruins and the Brecon Beacons stretch into Herefordshire. It has a rugged, unspoilt quality. Hay-on-Wye, with its book shops, literary festival and lively shopping scene is a popular holiday destination as is Ross on Wye both sitting on he best stretch of canoeing river in Britain. Fiercely contested with the Welsh over centuries, Herefordshire is riddled with historic castles and sturdy farmsteads, and the culture is rich.
