Country House Hotels in the Cotswolds

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cotswolds are famous for picturesque villages of mellow honey-coloured stone, gentle rolling hills and winding rivers. Almost 400 years ago however, it was a very different scene, as the area witnessed some of the bloodiest battles of the English Civil War.

Broadway, Burford, Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are well known picturesque Cotswolds villages, all with links to the Civil War. Today these quaint villages are very popular with visitors and what better after a day exploring them than to settle back and relax in one of the unique collection of historic hotels that we have selected for you below.
