Beat Those Back to School Blues with a Trip to The Cotswolds


Everything you need to know to plan the perfect Cotswolds break.

Although the warmer weather is most definitely behind us, that won’t be enough to stop the little ones wanting to venture into the great outdoors.

You might think the Cotswolds are perfect for the summer season, but there’s so much more to this beautiful area of Britain than that. As the leaves start to fall and the landscape turns a deeper shade of orange, there is still plenty to see and do to help you and your little ones beat the back to school, autumn blues.

Cotswold Falconry Centre

For a hands on experience with birds of all shapes and sizes, head to the falconry centre. A small and unassuming place with plenty of character, let your little one fly with the best of them.

Fairy tale Farm

A sensory learning experience to explore with all the family, this farm provides your children with the chance to discover the delights of Mouse Town and stroke giant rabbits – what’s not to love?

Blenheim Palace

A spectacular World Heritage site built in the early 18th century, almost as old as Ellenborough Park, one of the finest hotels in Cheltenham. Peruse the portraits and point out parts of our rich British history to your littles ones as you wander the halls of this grand building in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Westonbirt Arboretum

There is nowhere better to spend an autumnal afternoon that Westonbirt. Browse the hundreds of trees that are housed here with a warm hot chocolate and embrace the transformation in season as the leaves change colour and the air grows more chilled.

Bonfire Night

Think toasty scarves, gloved hands holding sizzling sparklers and dazzling spectacles in the night sky. With plenty of firework displays to enjoy in the Cotswolds, at least one of them is sure to impress!

The Cotswolds are the perfect place to spend time with your family, whatever the season.

If you need somewhere to stay while you explore this beautiful part of the country, view the availability at Ellenborough Park, one of the most decadent hotels in Cheltenham.
