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 .

    Lovely apartment in a unique setting in a village and farming area owned and managed for posterity and the nation by NT. Long may it last and be available for ordinary people to come and experience it. Beautifully presented apartment. Please thank the staff who look after it.

    Made special by:

    The cottage was in a lovely quiet area. We were able to visit some wonderful National Trust properties (Chastleton House was fantastic). My wife and I particularly enjoyed our time there because it was our first break with our baby daughter. We were very happy with the National Trust cottage and would certainly like to book another cottage in the near future. We found it very helpful, as members, that you sent to us a special discount offer promotion (10% off) which we used this time. This makes booking a cottage even more tempting. Thank you
