It oozes chocolate box beauty, but the Cotswolds has hidden depths. You’ll discover historic villages, the majesty of Blenheim Palace, nature reserves and a rich arts and crafts heritage that’s still going strong. It’s a walker’s paradise with gently undulating hills and 100 glorious miles of the Cotswold Way to gambol along before gravitating to the nearest honey-hued pub for some liquid refreshment. Our glamping holidays in the Cotswolds range from shepherd’s huts, yurts and cabins, to bell tents and – of course – spectacular treehouses.
Glamping is travel without the distractions of busy check in desks and boisterous crowds. It’s the chance to see places in their quiet, unspoilt glory. Plus there’s often a hot tub. Breathe in the clean fresh air, cuddle up round the campfire, swing in a hammock under the stars and time will start to slow down and expand. Whichever glamping place you pick in the Cotswolds, you’ll find something totally unique, cocooned in a picturesque landscape.
