Cotswold wedding hotels: romantic hotels and city chic boutiques

The Cotswolds is a swirling mass of history, culture, bucolic vistas, chocolate box villages and excellent food.  Famed for Cotswold stone buildings and towns from Oxford to Cheltenham and Cirencester, it’s a treasure trove of beautiful places to get married. 

Oxford of course, being known as one of the ultimate university cities, has a sense of grandeur for a wedding occasion that few other places manage.  Fusing a feeling of country chic with city style, to think of Oxford is to think of coffees in Jericho, punting on the river, roaming around the art galleries and historic colleges, and taking in the sense of history that goes back so many hundreds of years.  The architectural style, the parks, the opportunities for both outdoor activities and urban sophistication, arts and crafts alongside academia are all part of the magic.

The Cotswolds of course is a wide reaching part of the UK, famous for its beauty, but also for its hospitality.  The area benefits from its own superb local produce when it comes to dining, but also being a juncture between London and the South West, where the best of clotted cream, Devon lamb and cider are all amongst the favourite experiences that the area has to offer.

Close to Bristol and Bath, the Cotswolds offer wedding guests a wide variety of things to see and do in the area, so part of the joy of getting married here is that both you and your guests can enjoy several days in the area, giving you time to really relax into the experience and enjoy it with the best of all worlds at your fingertips.
