The Cotswolds has long held its place as a luxury retreat from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. Its endless rolling fields, cosy country villages and meandering walking trails make the Cotswolds the perfect place to escape to this spring. At Monks Mill Barn, we welcome up to four guests at a time to unwind in our South Cotswolds luxury barn conversion. Whilst the Cotswolds is a magical place at any time of year, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t love the Cotswolds in spring. With that in mind, we want to share some of our favourite things to do in the spring from your luxury Cotswolds holiday cottage.
Splendid Walks for springtime in the Cotswolds
Walking is as synonymous with the Cotswolds as the Royals are with London, and spring is arguably the time where walks in the Cotswolds are most rewarding. Whether you want a gentle family walk or something a little more strenuous, from your luxury holiday cottage in the Cotswolds, you are never far away from the perfect trail. You can find some of the best spring walks in the Cotswolds from the National Trust here. The renowned Cotswolds Way also boasts enchanting woodland tracks, gently undulating parkland and charming Cotswolds towns. You can find a local starting point with a circular trail, knowing that your luxury self-catering Cotswolds cottage is waiting for you at the end of the day.
Take a Trip to Bath from Your Luxury Holiday Cottage
An easy drive from your holiday cottage in the Cotswolds sits the regal Georgian spa town of Bath. As though we can ever have too much of the idyllic Cotswold hamlets, Bath is on hand to offer its famous Georgian architecture, stunning cathedral and, of course, the unforgettable Roman baths. If you want to stretch your legs beyond the city’s walls spring, the Bath Skyline boasts stunning spring scenes just a short stroll from the city centre.
Visit Westonbirt Arboretum for a True Springtime in the Cotswolds Experience
As breathtakingly beautiful as it is truly important for its plant diversity, Westonbirt Arboretum is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon in the Cotswolds in spring. From our luxury holiday cottage, Monks Mill Barn, this iconic arboretum stands only a 20-minute drive away. It holds an astonishing 15,000 specimens, 2,500 different species and 17 miles of paths winding through them.
Save a Day to See Tetbury
Dating as far back as the Anglo-Saxons, Tetbury is the second largest town in the Cotswolds, but arguably the most delightful. The market town is bursting with grade listed buildings, incredible eateries, cosy cafes and independent shops and boutiques. It is also home to the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall. Though the town is truly charming all year round, in spring you can enjoy the royal gardens of Highgrove, Chavenage House, and Tetbury’s hanging baskets in beautiful bloom. Whilst we are sure it will be tempting to stay nested in your luxury holiday cottage in the Cotswolds.
Enjoy Local Produce at the Cotswolds’ Outstanding Eateries
Staying in a luxury self-catering cottage in the Cotswolds, you can make the most of the Cotswolds’ outstanding restaurants, gastropubs and bars. Serving up delectable local produce, it’s difficult to go wrong. Amongst some of our favourite restaurants are Wild Garlic in Nailsworth, The Gumstool Inn in Tetbury, The Bell at Sapperton close to Stroud and Beaufort Restaurant in Tetbury.
