Why Book Your Holiday Let with Us?

Luxury Cotswolds Cottages and Holiday Lets in the Cotswolds

With so many people offering you holiday cottages in the Cotswolds, you probably want to know what we do differently. Over the years we have listened carefully to our customers and have created a service designed specifically to meet the needs of today's discerning holiday maker.

How We Find the Perfect Cottages in the Cotswolds

We achieve our vision by sticking to a number of critical principles that in our experience have proven to be some of the secrets to a great Cotswolds holiday cottage escape:

  • All of our holiday homes have been personally inspected, prior to their inclusion in our hand-picked portfolio;
  • Many of our holiday lets are listed buildings and every property has some character features, such as inglenook fireplaces, fabulous rural views or being located in a traditional village, all of which combine to present you with a unique holiday experience;
  • Complementing their traditional Cotswolds character, the vast majority of our cottages have modern facilities, including free wireless broadband access, comfortable beds and TVs with DVD players;
  • Our holiday rentals are typically close to a good country pub and often close to local shops with local produce, to enrich your holiday experience;
  • We look for luxury holiday cottages in peaceful settings, often in smaller villages outside of the main towns, usually well away from busy roads and from the hustle and bustle of normal urban life, and with plenty of walks and activities for the whole family;
  • Our aim is to help you create the perfect holiday experience, not just find the perfect holiday home;
  • We always strive to provide you with a prompt, professional and courteous service, and we value all feedback that we receive.

We appreciate that your holiday time is precious and with careful planning and preparation we can help to make it extra special - please take a look at our portfolio of beautiful Cotswolds holiday cottages. Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds have a wealth of beautiful places to stay and at Character Cottages we will help you pick your perfect cottage.
