The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire

These three counties are a chance to get closer to traditional English life, gentle rolling hedgerows alive with wildlife and wide open green spaces to relax in. Best bits include exploring the green chalk hills and woodlands of the Chilterns and discovering the history of Warwickshire, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

If not the heart of England, the Cotswolds and the neighbouring county of Warwickshire, are surely its soul - an uplifting vision of breathtaking scenery, with gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses. This beautiful area offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life, and is attractive throughout the year. There is no better way to enjoy the splendours of the Cotswolds than to stay in one of the Trust?s many holiday homes .

    Made special:

    Seeing pheasant, deer and rabbits from kitchen window was lovely. Proximity to the Thames to see the swans and take out a rowing boat was time well spent. Log fire every night was wonderful. Also quiet location in farmland.

    My special by:

    The location, with the hares, deer and pheasant in the field opposite and the great local walks, plus the open fire We struggled to make the TV work at 1st but that was probably us not spotting the DTV button on the box - left message to that effect, otherwise all great

    A very cosy warm cottage

    This was our third cottages break and we agreed our favourite so far. Approached down a farm lane is was very cosy and secluded. We woke to the lovely smell of Jasmine outside the bedroom window. We had wonderful weather for late September 2005 and covered miles of ground around the local countryside including a shopping trip to Oxford. A very cosy warm cottage again with all the comforts of home. I certainly didn't want to go home and we booked another break within a couple of weeks.

    Great views of the surrounding countryside

    We arrived on Friday evening after work - it was very cold with a clear night sky which gave us spectacular views of the stars (compared with our usual London light - polluted sky!). On Saturday it was cold but very sunny - we wrapped up warm and did a 4 hour walk through the estate grounds to Badbury Hill, which gives great views of the surrounding countryside - including Faringdon Folly and the Uffington White Horse (in the distance) - and then on to Great Coxwell Barn which is worth a visit. We had a nice fire in the evening!

    Thank you National Trust

    Our second visit to this lovely cottage. We love the Cotswolds. The week has flown past. A visit to the Plough at Kelmscot is a must. Good sea food. Our batteries have been re-charged. Thank you National Trust. We shall be back
