It’s time to book this year’s holiday, and there is surely no better way to holiday in this country than enjoying a week or two of all that the Cotswolds has to offer. 
So, you’re looking for a staycation in the Cotswolds, and we have five great village locations as well as five great holiday cottages for you to consider. 


One of the best kept secrets of the Cotswolds is the small gem that is Adderbury in West Oxfordshire, a picturesque little village comprised of traditional honey-coloured Cotswold stone cottages. It is surrounded by wonderful countryside as well as nearly 2 hectares of local nature reserve, Adderbury Lakes, dating all the way back to 1768 when they were created by Capability Brown as part of the grounds of Adderbury House.

Stay in Rose Cottage in Adderbury, located in the grounds of a farm with fantastic countryside views.


Just 3 miles from Woodstock is the charming village of Tackley with a mix of stone-built cottages, converted buildings and the Saxon Church of St Nicholas. This is a traditional English village complete with a green and a fine old oak tree forming the centre of the village. 

Stay in Buff’s Lodge in Tackley, located in the village in walking distance of the popular local pub.


Once an area with strong royal ties via the stunning Palladian house, Kirtlington Park, Kirtlington today is a beautiful village in Oxfordshire Cotswolds and the perfect base for those holidaying in the Cotswolds. 

Stay in Beverley Cottage in Kirtlington, located close to two fantastic local dining pubs. 


As chocolate box villages in the Cotswolds goes, Ramsden is both among the prettiest and the least known. This little village in Oxfordshire is well kept, yet not manicured, it is the perfect place to spend your family summer holiday or a couple’s weekend away in the Cotswolds. 

Stay in Butler’s Stall in the centre of the most beautiful Cotswold village of Ramsden.


The village of Bladon near Woodstock is a very pretty Cotswold village and worth a visit over a weekend break in the Cotswolds, a week-long holiday or a day trip for a walk, a picnic and to see the grave of Sir Winston Churchill in the graveyard of St. Martin's Church.
