This riverside village lies amid the spectacular countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the county of Gloucestershire. With its stone-built homes, graceful church, and lack of shops, this rural community is an idyllic base from which to discover the region. The scenery surrounding holiday cottages in Windrush is among the Cotswolds’ most beautiful, with unspoiled woods, fields and hills to explore. A stroll eastward along the river from Windrush, the Fox Inn serves local ales and delicious food, prepared with the finest fresh produce. Nearby, the Cotswold Outpost is a popular place for lunch, while the Upton Smokery Farm Shop is the place to pick up local meat, cheese and vegetables to take back to your holiday cottage in Windrush. The neighbouring town of Burford is well worth a visit, with plenty of shops to peruse in its historic centre. Nearby, the towns of Longborough and Stow-on-the-Wold are full of family-run businesses and places to eat and drink, while Moreton-in-Marsh has antique shops, art galleries, tearooms and gift shops. The cities of Gloucester and Oxford are home to some of England’s most impressive architecture.
