Lodges in Gloucestershire

We've Found 5 Fab Lodges Just For You

Lodges in Gloucestershire Guide

When you imagine Gloucestershire, picture sophisticated spa and market towns situated on sprawling countryside for further than the eye can see. Boasting adorable honey stone villages and miles of forest and rural landscape, this Cotswold county is a perfect retreat.

Spend time exploring the historic city of Gloucester, browse the elegant boutique stores of Cheltenham, take a trail through the Forest of Dean, or perhaps enjoy a leisurely drive through some of the county’s many iconic Cotswold villages.

Gloucestershire has a packed event calendar too – visitors can choose from the world-renowned Cheltenham Gold Cup Festival for a day at the races, gain a little culture at the Times Literature Festival, or even witness the quirky annual cheese rolling festival.

Explore the countryside

Guests in Gloucestershire can’t visit without exploring some of the beautiful Cotswold countryside of the county. Head to the Forest of Dean for a trip on the steam railway through the scenery, explore Clearwell Caves, take the famous forest sculpture trail, or wander the mysterious pathways of Puzzlewood’s acres of ancient woodland.

The village of Winchcombe is home to Sudeley Castle, with its splendid gardens and sculptures scattered around the grounds that are the backdrop to the important historic building. Keen ramblers can explore some of the 100 miles of walking the Cotswold Way with picturesque views, stopping off of course at a few countryside pubs, adorable villages, and attractions along the way. 

Soak in some history

Gloucestershire is steeped in some historical gems - beautiful Gloucester Cathedral is a medieval jewel that’s certainly worth a visit no matter what your level of history buff. Offering over a thousand years of history, the beautiful cloisters and whispering gallery are some of the most impressive in the world. As the burial place of King Edward II and the venue of the Coronation of King Henry III, it’s steeped in iconic history – of course, don’t miss the filming locations of Harry Potter, Sherlock, and Dr Who too!

Head to Chedworth Roman Villa to explore some of the best preserved Roman history in the world, with incredible mosaic floors and artifacts. Cheltenham’s elegant Grade I listed Pittville Pump Rooms boast the discovery of the iconic spa waters in 1716 that made the town a fashionable place to visit for its medicinal properties, often frequented by King George III and Jane Austen as one of the world’s most famous Regency towns.

Festival fever

Gloucestershire is bustling throughout the year thanks to its regular sporting and cultural events, so it’s worth checking the calendar to see when these are throughout the year. The Gold Cup Festival runs each year in the week of March closest to St. Patrick’s Day, bringing the county’s most vibrant week of the year when revelry, pints of Guinness, and all-day breakfasts are in full flow.

Other key events include the Cheltenham Science Festival and the Food and Drink Festival in June, the Cricket Festival in July, and the iconic Literature Festival in October, which has attracted the likes of Hilary Clinton, Russell Brand, and Nigella Lawson in recent years. Don’t miss the quirky, world-famous Cheese Rolling event which takes place each May, when brave contestants try their chances at catching a Double Gloucester cheese that’s thrown down one of the county’s steepest hills.
