A popular place with Londoners since as far back as the advent of motor cars, the Cotswolds is stuffed with excellent hotels and B&Bs, though the most picturesque towns and villages can be very expensive. If you’re on a tighter budget or need flexibility, there’s plenty of self-catering choice in the forms of cottages, converted barns and churches, and luxury lodges. Scroll down for our hand-picked favourites.
The Cotswold Water Park has a few hotels/inns, including the family-friendly De Vere Cotswold Water Park offering self-catering accommodation, hotel rooms and a spa.
There's also a family-oriented camping and caravan site at the Cotswold Farm Park (see Overview).
