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 clean cottage

    We arrived a lot earlier than planned and were allowed entry to the cottage. We were told where to buy a newspaper and the groceries we forgot to bring. The cottage was warm on arrival and remained warm all weekend. It was extremely clean, well presented, well decorated and well furnished. The welcome tray, card and flowers were a very nice touch. We will return.
