Explore an area that's rich with natural beauty

With nearly 800 square miles of hills, meadows and woodland to uncover, the Cotswolds is an ideal location to take in some of the best landscapes in the country.

You can wander through the Prince of Wales' themed gardens at Highgrove House, see almost 3,000 trees in the 55-acre Batsford Arboretum, or take in views that stretch as far as Wales from the top of Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds.

You'll find owls and eagles at the Falconry Centre in Moreton-in-Marsh, penguins and flamingos at the Birdland Park and Gardens, and over 260 different species of animal at the Cotswold Wildlife Park near Burford.

Retire to a region that's packed with history

From towering cathedrals to curious museums, there's plenty of history and heritage to discover around the Cotswolds.

You can visit the tomb of Henry VIII's sixth wife at Sudeley Castle, see the second-largest parish church in England at Tewkesbury Abbey, or explore the stately rooms of a Jacobean manor at the 17th-century Chastleton House.

You'll find Neolithic, Roman and Victorian artefacts at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, social history at the Gloucester Folk Museum, and a huge range of classic and vintage cars at the Cotswold Motoring Museum.

Testimonial image

As if moving into my beautiful new apartment wasn’t enough, everything that led up to the move was handled by McCarthy & Stone. I couldn’t believe how easy it all turned out to be; I was left with just two boxes to unpack which suited me and Meira just fine.
