The Cotswolds is a fine destination all year round. Summer is the peak travel season, especially from July through August. With warm weather and long, dry days, this is also the busiest and most expensive period. Popular attractions and beauty spots are prone to becoming overcrowded, particularly during school holidays. To avoid these crowds, opt for travel in June or September when the weather is equally pleasing. The beautiful countryside also comes to life in both spring and autumn, seasons that see less footfall. What’s more, walks become more manageable without the higher temperatures. As for winter, the Cotswolds may frost up, but it also takes on an ethereal quality. Expect roaring fires and cosy pubs after charming walks in the country.

Spanning six counties, the Cotswolds is the quintessential English countryside experience. Thatched cottages and charming churches cloister around pretty village greens. This is an affluent area loaded with opulent townhouses, manors and estates. It’s also a protected area that seems caught in time – thanks in part to its avoidance of the Industrial Revolution. If you’re craving England’s green and pleasant land, this is it. What better way to experience village life than a charming cottage stay through Voyage Privé?
While England’s other Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty may offer more awe-inspiring, mountainous vistas, the Cotswolds is pleasant.

Pack your walking shoes and wellies in wet weather, and head out into the country. Don’t forget to finish your walk with a well-deserved pint in the nearest thatched-roof pub.
