Gardens in the Cotswolds are rightly famous - there are perhaps as many as twenty national important gardens to explore as well quiet green spaces at every turn. And Spring is the time to find the Cotswolds at its best as it displays a cycle of colour from daffodils to bluebells to wild spring flowers.
For many overseas visitors ‘Country Hotels Cotswolds’ are synonymous and the area, which mainly runs through Gloucestershire, Oxford-shire,Wiltshire and Worcestershire, is a huge draw. It’s all helped by easy access from London and the availability of Country Hotels Cotswolds style which, in many cases make a great contribution to local scenic beauty.
Cotswolds House hotel, for example, has a beautiful semi terrace garden tucked away at the back - despite its location in the centre of Chipping Campden. It’s interesting point that the tourism economy sustains a terrific amount of the Cotswold’s attractiveness, both in terms of natural gardens and also the incredible man-made beauty of Cotswold stone villages and towns, the manor house hotels and inn that are all part of the attraction.
We’ve known visitors from overseas ask if the area is a kind of Country Hotels Cotswolds theme park - is it all for real? It’s very flattering, but yes - through a quirk of history the area escaped the ravages of the industrial revolution and , despite the obvious wealth of the area and today, there is a firmly ‘real’ farming industry today. The land has a purpose.
