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 .

    The cottage was ideally situated for visiting the Cotswolds area. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained and the welcome tray was appreciated.

    We spent Christmas at Deer Park Lodge because it was near our homes. This meant that we could entertain local friends who were able to come and spend the day with us. Deer Park Lodge is convenient (the A40 runs very close by) but the property itself is completely quiet and peaceful. The short walk around the Deer Park was lovely despite the weather and ideal for visiting friends particularly children.

    Beautiful and quite location very much enjoyed being able to walk around the property grounds when closed to general public. Plus the enclosed garden was great for the dog. All the cottages we have stayed at so far have been very well equipped, clean and well kept and comfortable
