Today it is a busy central hub for many surrounding Cotswold villages.

Properties can be intimate enough for two or comfortably accommodate 10. Each offers its own mix of historic touches, like aged stone or wood-burning stoves and modern conveniences like broadband and central heating. Enjoy the best of yesterday and today in this incredible holiday location.

Things to do

-Churches: Construction on the Church of St. John the Baptist, Cirencester started as far back as 1115, it has a pipe organ from 1895, and it still holds services today. Located in the centre of town, this beautiful parish church is known for its Gothic perpendicular architecture and stained glass from the 1300s.

-Family attractions: Visit New Brewery Arts for arts, crafts, exhibits, and music. Watch working artists and craftsmen in their studios, and browse impressive and unique wares. There are also various workshops held year-round, which are particularly good fun for families with kids staying in holiday homes in Cirencester. Stop for a bite in the on-site café afterwards.

-Nature: The Cotswold Water Park is a massive 150 acres of man-made lakes including an inland beach. Cool off in the Cotswold Country Park and Beach under lifeguard supervision, or wander the nature reserves for bats, beavers, dragonflies, water voles and bird watching. There are also activities to enjoy, from aerial adventures to rally driving!

-Outdoor activities: Cirencester Park sprawls over 3,000 acres and is free to enter. It is the seat of the Bathurst family, and their massive estate sports the tallest English yew hedge in Britain, which is thought to have been planted around the year 1710. Dogs are allowed and are only required to be leashed at the entrance.

-Historical attractions Cirencester's Roman Amphitheatre is one of the best preserved in Britain, though it remains only partially excavated. It is about 150 by 135 feet and is estimated to date back to the 2nd century. This site speaks to the important role Cirencester played as an early Roman area.

Cotswolds Delight

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Barn Owl Cottage at the beginning of July. A fabulous cottage in an idyllic location, ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. The cottage was tastefully decorated, with all the mod cons we needed, making for a very comfortable stay. The cottage had a great garden which was fabulous for the kids to run around in and for the adults to relax in at the end of the day with a nice glass of wine! The owners Helen and Martin were lovely and made us feel very welcome. We definitely plan to go back! xx

A beautifully maintained, clean, spacious, very well appointed home within easy walk of Bourton.

5 of 5
Engagement and booking with the owner was very straight forward - with good, clear directions and easy access... and good off-street parking. Bedrooms beautifully furnished, with lovely master suite.. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of counter space and three fridges... large utility room and laundry. Kitchen open to large dining area with seating for 10 - which opens out with double doors to terrace... two outside tables and chairs plus large sun umbrella. A very comfortable venue for large family gathering - respectful request from the owner to remain aware of noise when utilizing outside areas / in the evening due to proximity of neighbours, however house not directly overlooked. Would definitely book to go again 👍
