Lodges in Cotswolds

Movies and novels from the past and present have made the English countryside a famous destination for those seeking an authentic holiday of peace and calm away from crowds of tourists. The area we are presenting to you is one of the places in England to offer unique experiences among stunning hilly nature.

Discover the beautiful Cotswold wilderness

In terms of its habitat, Cotswold is covered by grasslands, which is actually quite rare for the UK. Another interesting fact is that the quarries in the area dig for Cotswold stones. These are also widely used in the villages, historical towns, and state-owned properties. The whole region is one of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty as per UK’s ecological recognition, being one of the largest protected areas in England.

The limestone layers underneath the grasslands have moved up and down in the past. This movement has created a cut into the valley, rising one side higher than the other. This “cut” is known as the Cotswold escarpment or Cotswold Edge. In the area before arriving near the edge, you can visit two market villages – Dursley and Wotton under Edge. Both have unique and subliminal architecture, providing picturesque views of the Edge behind them. Moreover, you can also check the Severn River. Do not miss to visit the Severn Bore! This series of tidal waves form when the rising tide flows through an estuary into the Bristol channel. The waves sometimes rise to as much as 3m high.

Activities

If you are a fan of wildlife, we have the best suggestion for you – Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. More than 160 acres of gardens filled with animals of any kind await visitors throughout the year. You can have an unobstructed view of all animals living on the premises of a Victorian house’s property. Giraffes, sloths, bats, penguins and rhinos are all waiting patiently to meet you and your family.

Numerous castles and mansions with their stunningly beautiful gardens and parks are open to the public. For example, the Bourton House Garden is an award-winning garden that will welcome you to a parterre, a topiary walk, as well as a few natural springs.

Cotswold Country Park and Beach is another interesting place, mostly visited by locals. In this park you can enjoy the sandy beach and there is even a lagoon where you can swim. This place is also popular among water sport enthusiasts as you can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, boats and many jumps and swings above the water.
