Notgrove Holidays – your perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds

Here in an area bounded by Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon you’ll find some of the finest landscapes in England. Cotswold towns and villages such as Burford, Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water are world famous and remain largely unchanged since their creation in medieval England centuries ago. This was when the wealth of the wool trade left its mark in the high quality stone buildings for which the area is renowned.

Notgrove itself lies in the heart of the Cotswolds, only 4 miles from Northleach, famed for its magnificent church of St Peter and St Paul which is claimed to be the “Cathedral of the Cotswolds”. Nearby, the River Windrush flows through the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water, creating a very picturesque village scene.

At nearly 800ft, Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold towns and is famous as a centre for antiques. The Roman Fosse Way from Cirencester to Leicester passes through it and it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill.

Should you decide to stay for a few days in one of our holiday cottages you will find plenty of places to visit and sites to see in these market towns, quiet villages and hamlets. If you would like to book a cottage please click here
