With miles of rolling green hills and almost 800 square miles of untouched countryside to explore, the stunning Cotswold villages provide the perfect backdrop for your dream countryside holiday in the UK. One of our top picks for this rural getaway in England is the Cotswold House Hotel & Spa.

Nestled in the heart of Chipping Campden, the Cotswold House Hotel & Spa had opened its doors to the public in the 1930s. The Regency building had at one time housed the Guild of Handicraft when part of the Arts & Crafts Movement moved to Chipping Campden in the early 19th century. The hotel has been revamped since then. But what remains constant here is its alluring charm.

Perfect backdrop for a dream countryside holiday


Be it the rolling hills and nearby fields, or the honey-coloured architecture of the town centre, the property’s central location offers picturesque Cotswold scenery from every window.

With 28 bedrooms and suites, seven treatment rooms and the most stunning gin garden, the property has been an ideal weekend gateway for the UK travellers. For a special treat, one can also book a room with its own hot tub and private garden.

For the gourmet lover

The hotel also bets big on its F&B offerings. To enjoy modern British cuisine, head to the hotel’s intimate in-house restaurant Fig or less formal eating or after-dinner drinks at the hotel’s Bistro On The Square. Just across the road from the hotel is its sister property. The Noel Arms, one of oldest inns in the Cotwolds is also a great place.

Of traditional pubs and cosy tearooms


And while you are visiting, do drive down to classic Cotswold town Stow on the Wold for the best traditional pubs and cosy tearooms. With a slew of old inns, shops and independent restaurants, you can almost step back in time in this market town of Chipping Campden.

You can also soak up some history at Blenheim Palace, which is the only non-royal country house in England with the title of palace.
