Cotswold Lavender

Cotswold Lavender is a farm set in an idyllic location high in the Cotswold Hills overlooking Broadway. During the summer season, the fields boast a truly stunning show of lavender flowers, billowing as far as the eye can see. After a soothing walk among the 70 miles of lavender rows in this beautiful scenery through the heady, relaxing scents of over 35 different varieties, it is impossible not to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You can take away a variety of lavender products at the end of your trip and take a little bit of tranquility home with you.
Get pampered

Perhaps after a hard days’ walking, you might want to continue on the aromatherapy theme by visiting a spa. The Cotswolds have plenty to offer in this respect, with award-winning spas offering a host of pampering and nurturing therapies. We recommend the picturesque town of Chipping Campden, which is not only home to Cotswold House Hotel and Spa but is also the perfect environment to wander around once your pampering session is over.

Glide through gardens and country houses

The Cotswolds has an abundance of gorgeous landscapes and towns and villages worthy of appearing on a chocolate box, but for the summer season, honorable mentions must go to Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate Court, and Snowshill Manor. Immerse yourself in the tranquil gardens and antiquities and emerge feeling serene.

Stay somewhere different

It is said that a change is as good as a rest, so why stick to the usual hotels or B&Bs? Why not sleep out with nature? The Cotswolds offer many glorious opportunities ? especially in the warmer months ? to stay somewhere different, with yurts, camping barns and shepherds huts set up in the most picturesque places. You can find accommodation of almost every type available in the area. You are truly spoilt for choice.

However you choose to relax this summer, you can’t go far wrong by heading over to the West Country for a relaxing Cotswolds retreat.
