Blenheim Palace, located not far from Oxford, is something not to be missed. Built in the early eighteenth century, Blenheim was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and is today the home of the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. Not only is the Palace itself worth a visit, but the immaculately landscaped gardens and regular childrens activities also make it a great day out for the whole family. The model village in Bourton-on-the-Water is also a fantastic way to keep the whole family entertained.
Those seeking relaxation will be instantly charmed by the beautiful scenery and slow pace of life in the Cotswolds. The historic towns of Bath and Cheltenham have a long spa heritage and visitors looking for a pampering break will not be disappointed. At the recently opened spa in Bath, visitors bathe in pools filled with water from natural hot springs just as the Romans did more than 2000 years ago.
For those wanting to get out and about, the Cotswolds is the perfect place to swap four wheels for two. Cycle routes criss-cross the glorious scenery and cater to all fitness levels, making this a perfect way to explore.
The Cotswolds lies in the heart of the UK making it an easily accessible destination wherever you are travelling from. This makes the Cotswolds an ideal place for a self-catering cottage holiday as within a matter of hours you will feel right at home.
