The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Shop

In the Cotswolds you can happily forget all about bland High Streets and boring shopping centres to find, instead, a range of glamorous, independent shops that showcase local crafts and remind you why browsing around can be a genuine pleasure. Across the area there is a real mix of stores but most are true specialists and whether its books, antiques or home wares you're looking for the chances are the shopkeeper will be friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely helpful. The rolling green hills and countryside villages are reflected in the traditional food that is on offer, with a selection of lively farmers markets to choose between, as well as permanent delis and farms shops, and the famous Cotswold Cheese Company.
