About the Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled regions in England, with high, wooded hills and sweeping valleys dotted with charming, timeless villages of honey-coloured stone cottages.
Winchcombe is an historic market town that lies just beyond Cleeve Hill to the north east of Cheltenham. This lovely town has a long main street and a church with a number of particularly ugly gargoyles!
Past the church is Sudeley Castle which dates from the 15th century. The castle was home to Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr and fell into disrepair following the Civil War before it was restored during the nineteenth century. The castle houses a wonderful collection of Tudor furniture and paintings, and it also has a chapel with extensive gardens. (Open Mar-Oct)
