If you feel like strapping on the hiking boots, the Cotswolds way is over 100 miles long. Never fear there are plenty of cosy pubs with open fire places and refreshing local ales, wines, meats and cheeses to lighten the load. If the 100 mile hike is too much exertion for you, time seems to stand still and make way for a very relaxed pace of life in the Countryside.

It is worth remembering you are within proximity and only a short train ride away from major cities such as London and Oxford. The Cotswolds is home to many famous faces including quintessential English Gent Hugh Grant, who you may catch on the golf course. Honorary royalty and actual royalty in the form of The Beckhams and Princess Beatrice are also residents in the area.

When you arrive home, you may feel like a celebrity yourself, as you approach your traditional stone cottage, you could be Cameron Diaz and Jude law in The Holiday.

When to go

The region has a temperate maritime climate with typically warm rather than hot summers and cool to cold winters. The Cotswolds rarely experiences very extreme weather, meaning that it can be visited throughout the year.
