Cottages to rent for self-catering breaks in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England
Gloucester Has Everything to Offer
The city of Gloucester lies on the River Severn and could be a great base for a self-catering break from which to discover city attractions as well as some of the best of Gloucestershire. Gloucester Cathedral dominates the skyline and its architecture, spanning 1,000 years, is wonderful to see, with incredible carvings and stained glass. Family fun is catered for too, especially at St. James City Farm. Kids love the rare breed animals there, whether it is a pig, cow, goat or sheep. They will also enjoy the Beatrix Potter House of the Tailor of Gloucester, where the children’s author created her popular character. The shop and museum tell the story of the character and its illustrations, with souvenirs for sale. For entertainment, there is Gloucester Guildhall, a venue that presents top bands, comics and speakers. Built in 1890, it was refurbished in the 1980s and offers live shows, cabaret, films, exhibitions, theme nights and more.
Days out on a cottage holiday can be spent discovering the inspirational Cotswolds scenery which includes towns, villages and rolling English countryside. For more days out in the country, the Forest of Dean is also within relatively easy reach and is a great place to enjoy walking, cycling and wildlife watching.
