March is dominated by the Cheltenham Festival (March 12-15) the highlight of which is Gold Cup Day. This year Gold Cup Day is on Friday the 15th.
It doesn’t seem like to long ago that the English tourism industry closed its doors in November and did open them again until Easter. Historic houses closed, some hotels even, and there was a distinct lack of things to do. Things have changed substantially in the last few years.
Cotswolds hotels are dotted around all corners of the area.
Finest Hotels in the Cotswolds are extremely popular at Christmas. There’s something about the image of a manor house hotel or inn at Christmas time. It seems that the gentle hilly scenery and the lights shining from cottage windows brings out our inner Dickens. It’s all very cosy.
There’s a real pleasure in mixing the luxury of our Cotswolds hotels and inns with a walk. We’d say this is even more pleasurable in winter. You return to your hotel feeling that you have really earned lunch or dinner and with a virtuous feeling that excuses an early evening G&T in the bar.
Our partnership of luxury Cotswold hotels offers some of the best rooms in the Cotswold hills. With a little planning you can wake up to a view of a historic village square, a kitchen garden, nothing but green fields or woodland treetops.
The Cotswolds area may be famous as an image of slow change or even permanence, but luxury hotels in the Cotswolds are always keen to innovate. Here are some trends and new ideas to look out for.
Most visitors to the Cotswolds are day-visitors, arriving by car or coach. As a result, the best way to ensure that you avoid the crowds is to stay in the area overnight.
If you plan a stay at one of our Cotswold hotels this Spring or Summer - and if you love social walking - we recommend joining in with one of the many guided walks across the area.
At this time of year, thoughts turn to Cheltenham Gold Cup Week.
