When people imagine the perfect English countryside, it’s the Cotswolds they picture. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1966, this gentle landscape has everything that’s right with the English landscape: gently rolling hills, slow-flowing rivers, picture perfect country gardens and villages sculpted from lovely Cotswold stone.

Winding through Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire, the Cotswolds is so special that it deserves its own page on Exclusively Thames Valley!

Imagine your delegates arriving at their manor house hotel by vintage car, arriving just in time for tea on the lawn. How about some team-building on the river to work up an appetite for your dinner of locally sourced produce in a top gastropub? There is so much to see and do, with facilities to suit any type of event. Bustling market towns like Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury, Stroud and Witney nestle cheek by jowl with picturesque villages like Broadway, Chipping Campden and the Slaughters.

We’ll be adding more information on the Cotswolds soon, so please come back and visit us to learn more about this unique and special part of England.
