Westonbirt is a perfect example of one of those tiny Cotswold places that you might drive through in a blink, but is full of history and stories. Westonbirt House was one of the most expensive of its time - built by the Holford family, whose family fortune came from the New River Company - which brought fresh water into London.
Back in the 19th century Robert Holford also sponsoring seed collecting expeditions around the world to indulge his passion for trees, plantings which now form the basis of Westonbirt Arboretum, now managed by the Forestry Commission as a hugely successful visitor attraction.
We've been busy launching a brand new website which now offers you more Cotswolds sightseeing and shopping information, more hotel details and more restaurant reviews. You'll also find a brand new Cotswolds Finest Weddings page. A one stop shop for the Cotswolds, in fact.
