Vacation Rentals in the Cotswolds

Spending a week or two in a vacation rental (called "holiday cottages" or "self catering" in the UK) is the best way to experience the Cotswolds - stay in a cottage on a farm, a row house in a Cotswolds village or, for a large group, rent a manor house. The Cotswolds is a popular travel destination and has many great vacation rentals. Book directly with the owner or use one of the many vacation rental agencies (some are listed below).
