The Cotswolds for history lovers 

There are quite a few castles nearby for those of you who want a taste of medieval times. There is the wonderful Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe only a short distance away, Berkeley Castle and of course the majestic Warwick Castle which offers you a great day out.

Gloucester Cathedral where Harry Potter was filmed is well worth a visit as is Worcester Cathedral. There is also the beautiful abbey at Tewkesbury and ruins of Hailes Abbey.

Chedworth Roman Villa is managed by the National Trust and one of the largest Roman villas in England.
