Summer Holiday Breaks in Gloucestershire

Why not take your UK holidays in Gloucestershire? This is a county of breath taking countryside, of softly rolling hills, open fields, huge forests, charming little villages and market towns; and it has to be said, there’s something for everyone.

You won’t regret a last minute holiday in Gloucestershire – spend a day in one of the vibrant cities, perfect for shopaholics, art lovers and history buffs. Visit the medieval Gloucester Cathedral or nearby Blackfriars Priory, take a cruise from the historic Docks or have a bite to eat at Dr. Fosters Waterfront Bar & Restaurant. Take in the wonderful Roman town of Cirencester, or the elegant spa town of Cheltenham, with its delightful Regency architecture.

Spend a day pottering round the Cotswolds; you’ll find attractive market towns like Moreton-in-the-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water, where you can have a relaxing lunch in the cosy Mousetrap Inn, or Tetbury with its interesting antique shops and rustic chic eaterie, the Trouble House Café Bar. You’ll find quaint mellow stone villages with charming tea shops, and Dads will love the Cotswold Motoring Museum, whilst literature lovers will delight in Laurie Lee’s beautiful Slad Valley.

There’s heaps for a perfect summer holiday break in Gloucestershire, with some gorgeous old houses and gardens to visit – we suggest Sudeley Castle, the unique Indian palace inspired Sezincote, Snowshill Manor, or for tree lovers, Westonbirt Arboretum.  Kids will have a great time with all the activities on offer in the Forest of Dean – how about Tree Top Adventure and Go Ape, Clearwell Caves or Puzzlewood? The whole family will have a fantastic day out at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, or at one of the many sites on the Cotswold Water Park.
