A romantic autumnal break in Autumn is the perfect time to relax and enjoy nature changing before winter hits. Situated in the South of England, the Cotswolds are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The area itself is huge, covering five counties (Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire). Throughout this large area, you will be spoilt for choice with an abundance of rolling countryside, river valleys, sleepy villages and quintessentially English country pubs ready to be explored.
You don’t need to travel far to see beauty. The idyllic English countryside is perfect in Autumn, as the leaves begin to change colour and the temperatures drop, forcing you to warm up with jumpers, scarves and crackling fires. It doesn’t matter if you are after a relaxing break or an adventurous trip, the Cotswolds are packed with a diverse amount of activities that will satisfy your every need, and then some. There will be something for you in the Cotswolds!
Revel in the rich history & heritage
The Rollright Stones situated in Oxfordshire are a unique and unexplained set of monuments from the Bronze age, highlighting the Cotswolds rich heritage. Other highlights include Berkeley Castle and Chavenage House, where the recent BBC remake of Poldark was filmed.
The Cotswolds are renowned for supplying delicious local food all year around, and Autumn is no exception! From award winning pubs in villages that serve the best fresh, local, seasonal produce to an abundance of farmers’ markets waiting to be discovered, the Cotswold is an ideal location for any budding foodies.
As the Cotswolds are an area of outstanding beauty, nature and beauty are available at an abundance. There are plenty of walking routes available throughout the area, with Westonbirt Arboretum being a perfect route to explore to catch the beautiful colours of the leaves changing from green to yellow to red. There are also a number of countryside pub walks which are ideal for seeing the beauty of the area, and then rewarding yourself with a well-earned pint of delicious local ale.
