After what has been a challenging and strange year for all of us – it’s great news that we can finally travel again for leisure. With the lighter nights, warmer weather and reopening of many shopping and hospitality venues - many of us cannot wait to book an extended staycation in the UK.

Many of our Cheltenham serviced apartments offer a private entrance, and with increased cleaning procedures and Covid response, our apartments and houses offer a perfect base for the ultimate UK Staycation.

So, why book a staycation in the Cotswolds?

Scenery – The Cotswolds have been classed as an ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty', boasting rolling hills, pretty cottages with thatched roofing and quaint villages with stunning views of sprawling countryside. We recommend a day trip to Bourton-on-the-Water or the lavender fields at Broadway.

Adventure – If you love the outdoors there’s plenty of adventure to be had in the Cotswolds. Some of our favourites include Cotswold Water Park, Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens and Cotswold Canoe Hire. If you’re seeking a little more adrenaline why not check out Gloucester Ski & Snowboard Centre.

Country Walks & Country pubs – Pop on your boots and get out in the fresh air and explore many of the stunning walks across the region – varying from a gentle ramble where you can stop to enjoy ancient pubs with original beams and roaring fires to more challenging hikes such as the Cotswold Way.

Local produce & great food– There’s a real foodie culture in the Cotswolds from small, family-run eateries boasting local produce including Gloucester Cheese, Tewkesbury Mustard, Cotswold’s Distillery spirits and Old Spot Pork to farm shops and independent restaurants. There are no less than 27 locations in Gloucestershire alone mentioned in the Michelin Guide.

Shopping – As well as great town centre shopping, the Cotswolds also boasts many independent boutiques and designer stores. We love the selection on offer at The Promenade and Montpellier in Cheltenham as well as the designer selection at Gloucester Quays Outlet.

With a wide range of accommodation options in Cheltenham, from modest 1-bedroom apartments to 4-bedroom townhouses with private gardens, we have options for almost every budget.
