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 .

    Beautiful Lower Lodge....

    Our family group of 6 stayed at the beautiful Lower Lodge during 2015 Christmas week. When the water supply and pump failed on Christmas Eve, the National Trust Holidays team was responsive and supportive in working with us to find a feasible, temporary solution to the problem. As a result, we were able to enjoy the rest of our time in Gloucestershire. Kim, Australia

    Made enjoyable...

    Very rural location of the cottage was a treat, surrounded by beautiful woodland and amazing walks. It was very quiet and peaceful.

    Cosy, clean and comfortable cottage

    We had a delightful weekend in this cottage - it was cosy clean and comfortable our thanks to the caretakers for keeping it at such a high standard We like to stay in different areas and have stayed in some wonderful National Trust properties - they are always the first properties we look at when we decide which area we wish to visit. We have stayed in towers and gatehouses and chapels with wonderful views - they have all been magical and make us feel as special as they are .
