As an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ the Cotswolds really comes into its own in the winter months, especially when you’re lucky enough to get a light sprinkling of snow and the whole place just becomes magical. It’s the perfect winter wonderland picture postcard – so why not plan your winter breaks in the Cotswolds this year?
There are oodles of specialist food stores and delis where you can pick up delicious morsels along with great wine and beer to take back and enjoy in your cosy cottage. Or, you could curl up in front of the fire at one of the many amazing pubs and enjoy a hot toddy or a delicious roast after a wonderful country walk.
If you choose to visit before Christmas then there are plenty of Christmas attractions with Christmas markets, light trails and special Christmas events. A visit to the Cotswolds after Christmas gives you something to look forward to in January or February as it’s the perfect time to explore this stunning part of England without the crowds
