Self-catering holiday accommodation in Gloucester
If you’re searching for a holiday in the Cotswolds with the delights of a city combined with countryside adventure, one of our cottages in Gloucester is just what you’re looking for. Lying at the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the county of Gloucestershire, this ancient city is packed with rich history, fun attractions and a wealth of fine eateries.
Wander along winding streets of timber-framed buildings, or along the picturesque banks of the River Severn on the Severn Way trail, stopping at welcoming cafes, pubs and restaurants along the journey for a gourmet meal or a classy cocktail. Head towards Gloucester Docks to marvel at its collection of narrow boats and tall ships, along with a superb selection of designer shops. One of the most magnificent attractions and a true feast for the eyes is Gloucester Cathedral – you may recognise it as Hogwarts from the famous Harry Potter films.
Home to one of the finest rugby clubs in the country, sports fans can enjoy a match at the renowned Kingsholme grounds, while those looking to escape city surroundings can relax in cosy tea rooms, traditional pubs and beautiful parks in some of the nearby Cotswold villages including Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and the Slaughters. Why not tie in a scenic country walk along the Warden’s Way, Windrush Way or the Cotswold Way?
If you fancy a flutter on the horses, Cheltenham Racecourse is the place to go, famous for its annual Gold Cup. Alternatively, try your hand at punting along the River Thames in the city of Oxford or take in a play by the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Company in the pretty market town of Stratford-upon-Avon – the opportunities for unique experiences and days out are endless! There’s no better way to end your day of exploration than in one of our holiday cottages in Gloucester, perfect for romantic breaks, family holidays or group getaways.
