The are truly incredible houses in the Cotswolds, but not many have roof-top swimming pools or night clubs in the cellar. In our latest article (link in our bio), we explore 8 truly incredible houses that you can rent for your next visit.
My inbox is full of people asking me where they should eat, sleep and explore when they visit the Cotswolds, and it gives me great pleasure recommending some of the amazing pubs, restaurants and hotels. Just recently, I have had an influx of people asking me where they should move to in the Cotswolds. That's a a life-changing decision that I'm not sure I'm qualified to make! Which village or town would you recommend to someone wanting to come and live in the Cotswolds? . . 📷 @katy_campbell_house_hunter (a property search agent who can definitely help!)
Bibury looking glorious in the sunshine today. It's easy to see why William Morris called it 'The most beautiful village in England'. Famous for Arlington Row, built in the 14th century as a monastic wool store and later converted into a row of weavers' cottages. It's also home to Rack Isle, an expanse of boggy water meadow so called because wool was hung out to dry on racks after it had been washed in Arlington Row and now and important habitat for wildlife. . .

Is there anywhere better to spend a day in the Cotswolds than at @blenheimpalace? It boasts stunning architecture, beautiful landscapes designed by Capability Brown and was the birthplace of the great Winston Churchill in 1874. We will be there for @bbccountryfilelive on Sunday. Who's going or who has already been? . . 📷 @peteseawardphotography
Couldn't resist snapping Upper Slaughter in the sunshine today as I drove through. Did you know that it is one of just thirteen doubly thankful villages that saw all their men sent to both World Wars return safe and well?
Castle Combe is arguably the most perfect of all Cotswold villages. The River Bybrook flows through its heart and no new houses have been built there for over 400 years. If you look closely you will notice that there are no TV aerials on any of the houses as they were removed when Doctor Dolittle was filmed there in 1967. A must visit this summer. . . 📷 @mrchrisspeed
Summer evenings were made for walking along the banks of the River Eye in Lower Slaughter 💕
#longlivethelocal . . 3 pubs a day close their doors for good. Please support all the amazing pubs we have to offer her in the Cotswolds. Check out our @cotswoldpubguide for some great places to visit. Here's @thechurchillarmspaxford looking wonderful in the sunshine yesterday as we went to try the new summer menu. The sea bass dish is one of the best I have ever had.
Can you even get anymore chocolate-boxy? . . Did you know that the phrase ‘chocolate box cottage’ derives from the picturesque scenes printed on boxes of @cadburyuk chocolates throughout the 1950s and 60s? . . Double tap if you'd love to live here 🏡 . . 📍Chipping Campden
Upper Slaughter as the sun was setting this evening. It has to be up there as one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds.
Summer mornings in the Cotswolds ☀️
Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town? . . It's very rare to not see a car or human in Stow on the Wold. I really need to stop waking up so early at weekends.
