The most stylish stays for weekend escapes
Ahh, the Cotswolds. There's nowhere better to escape to than this marvellous corner of Britain for a weekend break in the country.
Straddling six counties and home to honey-hued villages, gently undulating hills and luxury hotels with impressive restaurants, the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty truly is one of the most picturesque places in the world - and it's right here on our doorstep.
Whatever the season or weather, weekend breaks in the Cotswolds make for an idyllic escape - whether you're looking to get active with clay pigeon shooting and country walks or rest up in a five-star spa setting and indulge in long, lazy pub lunches.
When it comes to taking off for a few days in the country, nothing beats a romantic mini-break or family staycation in the Cotswolds as you get to know the likes of Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Broadway.
Anyone who's anyone spends their downtime here, too - and, while we can't guarantee you'll bump into Cotswold residents Kate Moss and the Beckhams, you can have a thoroughly good time by checking into our pick of the best places to stay during a weekend break.
Whether you're planning an autumn escape or looking ahead to summer 2021, these are the Cotswold weekend breaks to have on your radar.
