Self-catering holiday accommodation in Tewkesbury
The ancient riverside town of Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire is best known for its unique medieval character, with over 350 listed buildings of historic interest. Whether you enjoy spending time on its pretty riverbanks on a sunny afternoon or choose to wander through its black and white townscape of half-timbered buildings, overhanging upper storeys and intriguing narrow alleyways, you are sure to feel like you’ve stepped back in time. You'll also find the historic spa town of Cheltenham and the city of Gloucester close by, alongside several other pretty Cotswolds towns such as Stroud and Broadway.
Situated where the Rivers Severn and Avon meet, this idyllic town boasts an array of attractions to visit and a full calendar of things to do throughout the year. After a blissful night’s sleep in one of our Tewkesbury cottages, immerse yourself in its culture by exploring its Heritage Centre, the Tewkesbury Museum, the John Moore Museum or the recently restored 15th century Merchant’s Shop; all exhibit the fascinating history of the town through interactive displays. Then, if the sun is shining why not take a scenic boat trip along the Avon followed by a lunchtime picnic by the water?
After making a pit-stop for lunch, head to the 12th century Tewkesbury Abbey, an imposing feature of the town’s landscape and a magnificent example of Norman architecture with the highest Norman tower in the country, as well as an ornate ceiling and breath-taking stained-glass windows. The abbey is one of Gloucestershire’s most popular tourist attractions. As the evening draws in, take in a show at The Roses Theatre followed by a hearty meal at one of Tewkesbury’s many fine eateries. When it’s time to rest your head, our holiday cottages in Tewkesbury offer a cosy place to stay, where you can unwind in style and plan your next adventure in the Cotswolds.
