Quintessentially ‘English’, the Cotswolds are one of 41 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and are made up from parts of the English counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Somerset.
Comprising of gentle hillsides, sleepy villages, famous Roman cities such as Bath, and vibrant regency towns like Cheltenham, there is so much to see and do on a camping holiday in the Cotswolds.
Going camping in the Cotswolds enables you to step back in time and visit ancient towns and villages, many dating back at least 500 years. The region is famous for its honey-coloured limestone villages comprising cottages, public houses and churches; many scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Why not take a tour around the region and see the famous ‘dry stone walls’ (made of the same honey-coloured limestone) built by master craftsmen who use no cement to hold the walls together; truly a feat of engineering!
The Cotswolds is one of the most treasured and vacationed places in the UK, with tourists from both home and abroad flocking each year to the region to soak up the atmosphere of timeless uniqueness and touching preservation.
