Pool at The Bronze Knight, Plum Guide home in Cotswolds

When you think of rolling hills, hedgerows, and thatched English pubs, the chances are you're thinking of the Cotswolds. This really is the ideal retreat: home to some of the UK's most picturesque villages and perfect for long walks (3000 miles of footpaths and bridleways to be precise).

We’ve hand-picked a few of our favourite homes in Plum Guide's Cotswolds collection. Which one are you booking for your next escape to the country?
