When your pet is part of the family, it’s only right that they come on holiday with you. That’s why we are pet-friendly. From a warm welcome and the freedom to explore the UK’s amazing Cotswolds, your pet will love you for bringing them along.

Welcome to the Cotswolds, a very special, very wonderful place. A short break or even an extended holiday in the Cotswolds will leave you wanting more and you’ll be booking your next Cotswolds holiday as soon as you return home!
