Best campsites for the Cotswolds AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is synonymous with the classic English pastoral scene of bucolic landscape, picturesque, honey-coloured villages and verdant rolling hills linking sleepy settlements and peaceful pastures. It was awarded AONB status in 1966, and not surprisingly, it’s the largest of all AONBs, 787 square miles in all, ranging from near Stratford upon Avon to Bath and spread across several English counties.

Much of this area has its roots in the lucrative wool trade of the 17th century, and many handsome buildings still exist, built from the famous rich yellow Cotswold stone which bestows so much character to the area. There’s much to see and never enough time, but highlights include Chipping Camden, Broadway and Stow on the Wold, as well as Sudeley Castle, Tetbury Market House and Malmesbury Abbey. The region is popular with walkers and cyclists who can follow a variety of trails of various lengths aimed at all levels.
