Love Exploring: Highlights of the North Cotswolds

Notgrove Holidays was delighted to host freelance journalist, Lottie Gross, last summer who came to visit us for the day as part of her research for an article about all about the Highlights of the North Cotswolds.

We are delighted to say that we made the cut and she voted us the best place to stay for family holidays.  Have a read of her article below. The article also gives her advice on the best places for history buffs, best for small-town escapes and best for tranquillity.  Click here to read the full article Highlights of the north Cotswolds (loveexploring.com)

Best for a family holiday: Notgrove Estate

The Cotswolds is often misrepresented as a destination only for those interested in history and architecture. But there’s lots of appeal for families too, and there’s no better place in the north Cotswolds than Notgrove Estate.

This vast, 1500-acre estate is a wild adventure playground for kids and adults alike, with its deep valleys, swathes of untouched pasture and beautiful hilly views. Activities like foraging and falconry in the woods are among the highlights, but most thrilling is the electric quad bike tours run by Quad Quest. Visitors learn to drive the bikes before going on- and off-road around the farm to meet the goats, alpacas and highland cows. Fine scenery and soaring buzzards are mesmerising, but for serious adrenaline junkies, an hour of racing around the on-site quarry is a must.

Where to stay: Sleep on-site – Notgrove has its own accommodation in the form of modern self-catering barns, glamping pods or spacious safari tents with enclosed decking perfect for bringing the dog.
