Cotswold House Hotel: Combining the Best of Two Worlds

Just as its name implies, a Cotswold house hotel was a residential home for a family that was then converted into a commercial hotel for travellers.

Cotswold House Hotel

It is a favourite accommodation for travellers who are willing to shell out a few pounds more than the typical bed-and-breakfast for the comforts of home in a hotel.

Preservation as a Motive

We must point out that, in the Cotswold, the regulations on constructing new buildings are stringent because the local governments want to preserve the spectacular countryside landscapes, ancient castles and historical buildings of England’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Thus, many centuries-old homes are converted into modern hotels to provide accommodations to the millions of tourists streaming into the area.

The number of rooms in a house hotel can vary from 2 to 12 depending on the original area of the house. Owners strive to preserve the original structure, appearance and atmosphere of the house while outfitting it with appropriate modern facilities and amenities. The result is a blend of the best of two worlds, namely, English country living and English modern lifestyle.

Who can resist such an alluring combination? None, as any visitor to a Cotswold house hotel can attest to.

Selection Starts Here

We suggest the following house hotels for their reasonable rates coupled with comfortable accommodations, friendly service and proximity to areas of attraction:
